Getting to the Etihad

Getting to and from the Etihad Stadium by tram couldn’t be easier. Metrolink runs fast, frequent and reliable services direct to the Etihad Campus stop.

You can catch a tram every six minutes from the Deansgate-Castlefield, St Peter’s Square, Piccadilly Gardens or Piccadilly Station city centre tram stops and the journey takes around 10-15 minutes depending on where you board.​

All stops are fully accessible. Please see a Metrolink network map.

Services will be reduced at the Holt Town and Velopark stops during the hour after the end of the match. These services are also likely to be very busy, so please leave time for your onward journey.


We offer a range of value for money tickets and travelcards.


If you don’t have a Manchester City travel seasoncard, you can purchase a ticket on the day from the ticket machines on all stop platforms or on your smartphone via the get me there app (Google Play and Apple App stores). You must have a valid ticket before you board a tram. Please be aware that ticket checks take place across the network.


An off-peak return ticket from Piccadilly Station is just £3.00 for an adult, £1.40 for a child and £4.30 for a family (up to 2 adults and 3 children). Off-peak travelcards are also available and offer great value, allowing unlimited travel anywhere on the Metrolink network. A day travelcard is £5 for an adult, £2 for a child and £6.20 for a family.


If you’re travelling into the city centre by rail you can purchase a Metrolink add-on to your rail ticket allowing onward travel to the stadium by tram. Check with your local rail station or rail ticket agent for details.
