As a Swansea City supporter, it
was a must to watch the first game in the Premier
League and took my six year old son to Manchester. We
got a taxi from Piccadilly Station (£6.00 per journey
to and away from the stadium).
The view inside the stadium was amazing and a big screen, on either end, was available to entertain you before and showing highlights during half time and end of the game. Even though we lost 4-0, the stewards let us out at the end of the game, along with the Man City fans. However, the Police line up to prevent both sets of fans mixing and show directions towards the awaiting buses. There were five double decker buses available to the train station, they were overcrowded with home support and by walking five minutes down the road, taxis were available and clearly lit.
Overall, the visit to Man City was an experience with no trouble at all, even the Man City fans wished us good luck for the rest of the season (possibly a sympathy vote) and my son looks forward to return there next season (fingers crossed).
