The Commonwealth Bar

Reflecting the pride and heritage that the 2002 Commonwealth Games brought to Manchester, the Commonwealth Bar is ideal for groups of friends who are looking for a perfect blend of world class football and relaxed no fuss hospitality. The Commonwealth Bar combines a friendly and informal atmosphere with a genuine passion for sport. Food and drink is available to purchase, offering you real flexibility on your day out, and you can view the match from excellent half way line lower tier seats.

Your experience 

Once you have arrived at the Etihad make your way through the executive entrance in the East Stand, and be directed to the Commonwealth Bar. You will be greeted by the hosting team who will welcome you to the bar for the day, and familiarise you with the room, facilities, food and drinks available.

Poser tables are available to sit or stand at, as you relax and take in the pre-match atmosphere. You’ll find a wide variety of food and drink options available for purchase, whilst you wait for the game to begin. Study the programme and then just before kick-off make your way to your match seat, direct from the bar.

Enjoy the match from executive seating on the half way line in the lower tier of the East Stand. You are free to return to the bar at half time where complimentary tea and coffee will be available, and can be taken back to the stand for the second half. Post-match, head back to the Commonwealth bar to reflect on the game and enjoy more refreshments whilst the traffic dissipates.
