Manchester City are making Etihad Stadium eggstra special this Easter 


Keen to ensure Blues enjoy an extra special springtime, the Etihad Easter Stadium and Club Tour will feature a host of new activities with some brilliant prizes up for grabs as part of their City-themed, Manchester-wide egg hunt.

Easter eggs are central to this holiday period which is why your guided tour of the home of the Blues will this year double up as an Easter hunt. Choccy and football. It’s a match made in heaven.

Little Blues are encouraged to be on the look-out and to keep count of any eggs they find to be in with a chance of winning a signed shirt, while if you can guess the amount of eggs stashed in the exhibition space cabinet, you could be the lucky winner of a City goodie-bag.

And all of the aspiring Kevin De Bruynes and Carli Lloyds can showcase their skills in the crossbar challenge.

Meanwhile, the Man City Easter celebrations aren’t only confined to the Etihad Stadium as this year the epic egg hunt extends across the city.

They have the perfect way to keep the kids entertained while out and about during the school break: three giant eggs – distinguishable in City blue and with the club crest – hidden in various locations around Manchester.

There’ll be clues given out as to where these eggs are located from Tuesday 4 April and the team are asking all fans who find them to take a selfie and send it over on Twitter using #CityEggHunt for a chance to win a range of prizes.

Be at your egg-seeking best and you could get your hands on anything from free souvenir Etihad Stadium and Club Tour photos to a shirt signed by your favourite player!

The Stadium and Club Tour comprises:

  • A 20 minute self-guided tour around the exhibition where you can enter our competition
  • This includes a look at the club’s heritage, where we are now and our future ambitions and plans
  • A club lanyard
  • A 70 minute professionally guided tour of our club and stadium.
  • This includes a behind the scenes look at the press conference room
  • Home player dressing room, the tunnel, pitch side, and Pep Guardiola’s chair in the dugout*
  • 10% discount in the City Store on the date of your tour (excluding sale items)

The Stadium and Club Tour is open seven days a week from 09.00-17.00 (Sundays & Bank Holidays 10.00-16.00).
