Manchester City Tickets

Recommended Posts

I tried to get tickets this morning for Manchester City, but sadly no joy. i did manage to get 1 ticket in my basket, but sadly that's no good when you are trying to get 2 tickets for the match. Anyway from the experience of the sales for the Newcastle and Chelsea matches, is there any chance of tickets popping up for sale at a later date?

For home games I think there is due to the buy back scheme. What level of membership do you have?

Home Premier Membership.

I think its also worth trying over the phone as they may have some held back for that method of sale. 

Also online basket will empty after 15 minutes I think so you may get some coming back available in a few minutes.

I had 3 tickets in my basket, but went to pay and the screen chucked me out due to being on the website over 30 minutes! How can that be right. My 3 x £50 membership looking very good value!!!

I’m sure one year ( a few promotions ago) we were guaranteed a grade 1, 2 & 3 match, so at least we could go to 3 home matches.

It’s the frustration that get you.

Noted thanks.  Is is worth phoning a few days before the match or now?

I'd say try now and then just keep checking the website for buy backs.

Think it’s just going to be one of those things this year - I’ve got my own s/t but my 12 year-old has his membership so will go when possible.  I was lucky and sailed through without even queuing last time but had to wait 35mins today, then there was v little left and whenever I clicked a block whatever had been there seemed to have gone....c’est la vie, I guess it’s keep an eye out for returns (Man C are unlikely to give any back, either).

Without meaning to cover old ground it is just a bad system.

It also hugely benefits people with desk jobs who can be online/by a phone at 9am morning of the tickets going on sale.

Currently in Cyprus and even being 2 hours in front didn’t help!

Still, 3 points in the bag this weekend has certainly helped the mood, especially with a Villa fan next door 😀

I've got an office job, but it didn't do me any favours.

I've got a season ticket, but my Dad who lives a few hundred miles away has a membership so tries to get back to games and to make a weekend of it, so I can conveniently order tickets at my desk.

Same as another poster in that on my previous attempt this season (Newcastle), I only had 2-3 minutes queue when logging on at 9.02am - this despite people logging on at/before 9am joining longer queues and being greeted with sold out messages.

This time I logged on before 9am, joined a queue which was 45 minutes, was shown limited availability in 3 blocks (1 CIty Stand, 1 South Stand and 1 Community Stand), but when clicking there were none left.

The point you join the queue appears to be entirely random.
