How Long Is the Waiting List for a Man City Season Ticket?

After winning the treble (Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League) during the 2023/24 season, you’d imagine that getting a seat to watch Manchester City for the upcoming campaign would be a difficult task.

Season ticket waiting times vary by club, and this is based on a variety of factors including the size of their stadium, popularity, number of current season ticket holders and the form of the team. With some club’s season tickets costing as much at £3,000 for the 2023/24 season, some fans are being priced out of watching their favourite club on a regular basis.

In this article, we’re going to discuss how long the waiting list is for a Man City season ticket. We look at how you can purchase one, how long you might have to wait to do so, the cost of a season ticket and what benefits come with owning one. Man City fans rejoice and read on to learn more!

Man City Season Ticket Waiting List

Ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League season, there wasn’t a waiting list to get a Man City season ticket, unlike their “big 6” counterparts. The only requirement was that you needed to have a club membership in order to buy one. Any available season tickets went on sale on a first come, first served basis.

Some articles have suggested that both Manchester United and Manchester City both have season ticket waiting lists of 120,000, however after exploring some of the forums available, it appears that handfuls of season tickets have been made available to members before the start of the last couple of seasons.

How Do I Purchase a Man City Season Ticket?

In order to be a part of the Man City season ticket waiting list, you’ll first need to be a member of the club. This is something that’s easy to acquire, with each individual needing to buy a matchday membership, which are currently available to buy right now.

Once a member, any season tickets made available by the club will be put on sale on a first come, first served basis to all matchday members. This might be music to the ears of fans who haven’t been a matchday member for long, as most clubs tend to reward longer serving members with a higher opportunity to secure a season ticket.

Your chances of acquiring a season ticket rest on the number of tickets made available and the number of members trying to purchase one, information which isn’t disclosed by the club.

The key takeaways are to ensure that you are a matchday member, are aware of when any additional season tickets are going to be on sale, and that you’re at your laptop joining the queue on the day of sale. The rest is down to luck!

How Much Will a Man City Season Ticket Cost?

A Manchester City season ticket can cost you anywhere from £385 and £1030 for the 2023/24 Premier League season.

In comparison to the other 19 Premier League clubs, Man City actually offer the third-cheapest season ticket, with only West Ham and Burnley offering them for a cheaper price.

This doesn’t mean that if you’re lucky enough to buy one that it will definitely be this price, though, as this will be based on availability and in which area of the stadium the tickets are located.

Benefits of Owning a Man City Season Ticket

If you’re part of the Man City season ticket waiting list, you’re probably wanting to hear some of the benefits of owning a season ticket for your beloved sky blues. The two main benefits are having tickets for all home matches and priority access for cup competitions.

Tickets for All Home Matches

The main benefit of owning a Man City season ticket is that you’ll have a ticket for all 19 Premier League home matches. There’s no risk of you not having one for any of these matches, with no queueing required for securing tickets for each match day. This way, you’ll have peace of mind that you can attend every home match for the season.

Priority Access for Cup Competitions

On top of gaining access to all home matches, you can also enjoy the benefit of having priority for the various cup competitions Man City compete in. Manchester City are a side who tend to play late into cup competitions because of how good they are, so there’ll be more than enough opportunity to buy a ticket for each cup competition.

With Man City competing in the FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League each season, this proves to be a great benefit of having a season ticket for the club. During the 2022/23 season, they won the treble (Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League), which meant there were many cup games that season tickets holders could attend to watch their side play in.

Etihad Stadium Expansion

Although the chances of being able to secure a Man City season ticket are quite high in comparison to some of the other Premier League clubs, it’ll become even easier once the Etihad Stadium’s planned expansion has taken place.

If successful, the stadium will increase by 7,900 seats, taking the overall capacity to a figure of 61,968. All the additional seats will be added to the north stand, where you’d imagine more season tickets will become available, thanks to the additional capacity.
