A chance to see the inner sanctum of your beloved club
Forty six years to the day of his first professional Football League debut for Manchester City, Tommy Booth is set to front the first of the club’s popular and returning Legends Tour on Thursday 9th October 2014.
In a career spanning decades, Tommy played 400 games for the club, scoring no less than 25 goals, carried four cups and was capped four times for England - a fitting legend to kick-off the first of this season’s returning Legends Tour.
Providing City fans with a ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience, the Legends Tour offers places for no more than 20 people. One of the club’s 20 City legends*, guides guests around the inner sanctum of their beloved club in a behind the scenes tour that ensures one-on-one time with a football legend.
Tour guests will get a taste of premier league hospitality included in the tour. Sitting down, rubbing shoulders with the legend and enjoying the Etihad’s first class hospitality offerings with a three course lunch in an exclusive stadium box boasting panoramic views of the stadium.
What happens on tour doesn’t stay on tour. Guests are treated to a signed souvenir photograph of them with the legend as a thoughtful reminder from their day.
Ahead of the first Legends Tour, Manchester City legend Tommy Booth said:
“Today’s Manchester City stadium is worlds apart from Maine Road where I started my football career. Just like any other Manchester City fan, when I look at The Etihad, I’m awe-struck at not only the sheer size and scale but also at the club’s journey to get here.
“I’m proud to don my tour leader’s cap, share my experiences of playing football for a club I love and engage with real football and City fans with hidden gems of a club and stadium they thought they knew everything about.”
The first Legends Tour will take place at 12pm on Thursday 9 October. Tours will then run on the last Thursday of every month. Admission for adults/children is £70.
