Learning is supported in and out of the classroom with free resources provided both before and after your visit including comprehensive lesson plans, worksheets and accompanying PowerPoint slides. You can also benefit from free on-site parking and indoor eating areas on your visit to help your day run smoothly from start to finish.

Choose from four exciting educational experiences:

Match Report (Key Stages 2-4)

Aligned to the English National Curriculum, students will take a tour of the stadium focusing on the role of the media on a match day. The tour will end in the press conference room, where the pupils will watch a highlights package of an iconic Manchester City match.

Using a range of questioning techniques, the pupils will prepare questions and answers related to moments in the match they have just watched and then interview each other where the real players are interviewed on a match day.

Day in the Life of a Footballer (Key Stages 2-3)

Follow the daily life of a first-team player from the moment they wake up on match day through to going home after a game. Trained tour guides will give the inside knowledge on preparation, fitness, diet, performance analysis, training and warm-up, wellness, and what players are mentally going through before the whistle.

Professional sportsmen and women need the right types and amount of nutrition for the energy they expend. Students will explore and see the food and hydration required throughout the big day, along with some surprises along the way.

Stadium as a Business (Key Stages 3-4)

Immerse your students at the world-famous Etihad Stadium to explore the multitude of revenue streams that are taken in just a few hours when fans descend to watch the match.

During the tour, school groups will get under the skin of four specific commercial outlets looking at their income and costs, and will be encouraged to discuss profit and loss and come up with ideas for each unit to be more profitable.

Urban Regeneration (Key Stages 3-4, A-Level & University)

Focusing on the principles of regeneration and using the Etihad Stadium as a case study, this 45-minute presentation will tell the story of East Manchester and look at the site in detail through the decades, highlighting the different phases of regeneration to how the site has got to where it is today.
