How to buy Man City FA Cup Final tickets

Manchester City and finals have become almost synonymous during Pep Guardiola's reign at the club due to the Citizens' incredible amount of success under the Spaniard's watch. But, an FA Cup Final is always a huge occasion – even for City.

So, with that in mind, this is your guide on how to buy Man City FA Cup Final tickets, including prices and where to buy them.

How many tickets do Manchester City have for the final?

Similarly to their rivals Manchester United, the Sky Blues have been allocated an initial 30,000 tickets for the upcoming 2024 FA Cup Final.

But, whereas the Red Devils appear to be trying to secure more tickets – they have already successfully accrued 200 more seats thus far – Man City do not appear to be doing the same.

So, at the time of writing, that allocation is likely to stay at 30,000, although that is of course subject to change.

It is also worth noting that of those 30,000 tickets, an allocation of 100 pairs has been dedicated exclusively to wheelchair users.

Where to buy Man City FA Cup Final tickets?

The club's official website should be your first and in most cases, last, point of call when it comes to purchasing Man City FA Cup Final tickets.

From the home page, head towards the ticket section of the navigation bar and then into the men's fixtures tab. At this point, you will see an array of upcoming fixtures, and the FA Cup Final will be located towards the bottom of that list.

Purchasing tickets through resale websites is also an option, but that is extremely risky as the authenticity of items can be difficult to determine and prices will likely be incredibly inflated. If you choose this method, please proceed with utmost caution.

Who can apply for Man City FA Cup Final tickets?

There are strict rules on which supporters are able to purchase FA Cup Final tickets, with the club stating that “Season Ticket Members registered on the FA Cup Scheme aged between 18 to 25 years (based on supporter’s age on 1st August 2023) can purchase from an exclusive allocation of away match tickets on the first day of sale.

“Any tickets that are not purchased on this day will be added to the wider Season Ticket Member allocation.”

The sale window opens at 10am on May 1, with a priority order based on points earned throughout the season in place to ensure those who attend games the most are able to buy tickets if they so wish.

Albeit an unlikely scenario, if there are still tickets left even after they have been made available to regular season ticket holders at the Etihad, then the required criteria for supporters will be lessened.

How much will Man City FA Cup Final tickets cost?

Man City FA Cup Final ticket prices

Prices for FA Cup Finals are extremely standardised, and so, for the most part, both clubs have identical prices for their tickets.

Adult prices for Man City FA Cup Final tickets start at £45 and can reach figures north of £200. Based on which category of ticket you purchase, an exact price breakdown can be seen below:

Level 2:

  • Adult – £250/£225

Fans angry as FA hike prices for FA Cup Final

Supporters, both from Man City as well as other clubs,  have taken to social media to voice their anger at the FA's controversial decision to significantly increase the prices of the same seats for the FA Cup Final compared to the semi-finals.

One fan highlighted the extortionate price of a child's ticket for such fixtures, saying: “The children’s prices are a scandal. Cost £70 for a ticket for my 9-year-old in a decent seat on Sunday. Would have been £135 if we’d got to the final – that’s more than his season ticket!”

Man City hospitality tickets for FA Cup final

Wembley offers a total of six hospitality packages, and you will need to become a Club Wembley member in order to gain access to them.

There are a total of six packages to choose from, with a pricing structure as follows:

  • Inner Circle – £2,640
  • Centre Circle – £5,046
  • Bobby Moore – £9,030
  • Number Nine – £6,342
  • One Twenty – £13,002
  • Private Box – Prices for this option depending on what section of the ground it is located in

An FA Cup Final is a truly magical experience that we all dream of attending as children, so, whether you pay the big bucks for a hospitality ticket, or secure yourself a traditional seat, we hope everyone who wishes to attend the match is able to do so.
