The home of the new ‘northern powerhouse’ of football is the venue for this year’s conference. Manchester City’s home the Etihad Stadium. We will be hosting the conference in the newly opened Legends Lounge.


The Etihad is easy to get to via train or road.


Arrive at Manchester Piccadilly and take a cab the short journey to the Etihad. If you want to use public transport the best option is Metrolink.

Metrolink runs from Manchester Piccadilly station to Etihad Campus and on towards Ashton. The journey time from Piccadilly is less than 10 minutes.

Tickets must be purchased before travel, ticket machines are located on every Metrolink platform with an off peak return from the city centre priced at £3 for adults, £1.40 for children.


Visitors should drive into the Etihad Campus via Gate 11 on Ashton New Road (A662), drive around the perimeter of the stadium to Car Park C or D and enter the stadium via the South Stand reception, near entrance M.

Car parking is free for ELCC delegates.
