Where can you buy tickets?
Depending on government guidelines around the time of the game, the expectation is for plenty of fans to be allowed inside the Etihad to see the action for themselves. You can buy tickets by visiting See Tickets where there are seats priced at between £10.50 and £78.75, with there also being an option to make a direct donation to Soccer Aid.
