First Derby of the season on 15th Oct but it's a home game for The Filth. What's ticket allocation like?  Is it easy enough for me to get a ticket in the City side?

Yeah. The club will email you details on how to buy. 

Word of warning. If you can imagine the worst footballing experience you've had and then double it. That's what it's like going there.

Experiences there haven't been great. But being there with ur own kind and outnumbered is great . Like when we lost 3-2 but we came back from being 2-0 down was fuckng sick. Loss was shit but the mini comeback was epic. Will be going again for sure.

For me it's like going to the dentist. 

Feel obliged but rarely enjoy it and at times very painful. But eventually you know it was worth it.

Highlight for me is always the standard Victory family who purchase seats in the away supporter area (typifying the mong stereotype) and refuse to move from their reserved seats. Good laughs always follow.

 

 

 

But in all serious- how can people be so stupid as to do this- drives me up the wall. Same as people who purchase active support for socceroos but yell at others who stand up- you are the scum of the earth!

Tbf ticketing at Etihad is often a nightmare for both sets of supporters.

That literally would not be possible in the UK even if you tried.

Surely we're due a win at Etihad.

Surely we're due to rip up seats again and see who can throw them up on level 2 first

So annoying. But at the same time enjoyable to see them do the walk of shame after security advise them to leave cos they hear the "Fuck off Victory" chants directed at em.

where is the city active area this year? behind the goals like the SF was or in the corner like last year?

Pretty sure the website suggests it is behind the goals.

The worst place to sit at a football game.

Went to the game with the family last year and thought it was very pleasant. Probably the best it ever has been. Had a great seats in the away allocated area and had a great time. Don't know why all the concerns about it apart from the fact that it's played on an oval. Will be going this year.

The view is atrocious, having our active bay next to the south end was a circus last year. Getting held in also sucks.

I'll be going but won't be going active (marathon the next day priorities ect.)

You would have to pay me to go to that shit hole of a ground, no atmosphere, Oval ground and even with the seats in not near close enough to the game so i will stay home and watch it on TV and the playing surface is crap as well. 

The only good thing about that stadium is that it's right next door to Southern Cross Station.

I've said several times that IMO City should do more for City members to be together in a decent area for our away derbies. We give the whole of the Northern End to Victory for our home derbies and we deserve better than we currently get at Etihad.

Like Johnno, Mrs JW and I won't go to Etihad under the current set-up.

Only time I've ever been to a game there was Leeds v Colo Colo. Didn't like the view and don't think I'll return unless we've got a home game there. Although I am still considering the Japan game.

If I'm not wrong, tickets for the derby come out tomorrow 12pm.

Probably does. Not that I'm looking forward to Rojas, Vieri, Troisi and Berisha tearing us up a new a-hole and Essien keeping our attackers at bay.

when do away tickets and city active go on sale ?

Not sure. But I think members will get an email before they go on sale.

The supplied map of Etihad on the website is pretty much useless at working out where to go.  Hopefully when we come to book it'll make more sense...

Hey mate, how did you purchase for friends. I can only purchase the amount of memberships I have ....

couldn't, tried reusing the code for seated bays and get this "Member/s have upgraded and there are no other tickets available"
