Saturday 4 May 2024

We want to make sure you have everything you need before your event as there are multiple events taking place on the Etihad Campus on Saturday 4 May.

To minimise the impact on fans, we have been working closely with local organisations including Manchester City Football Club, Transport for Greater Manchester and Greater Manchester Police.

As well as a vibrant atmosphere, this does mean there will be added footfall across the Campus, and increased demand on local roads and the public transport infrastructure. While we’re making sure everyone is safe and happy, please do plan your travel in advance, and give yourself enough time to get to the event.

Manchester City Vs Wolves - Kick off at 5.30pm and it is expected to finish by 7.30pm.
Olivia Rodrigo - Doors open at 6pm and the event is expected to finish at around 10:15pm

We kindly request that you arrive after 6pm and aim to be in the venue by 7pm, you can plan your journey here.

Friday 3 May - Extra train service to Liverpool Lime Street

TransPennine Express (TPE) will run an extra late-night service for customers travelling home from pop star Olivia Rodrigo’s concert at Manchester's brand-new Co-op Live Arena – meaning fans can leave their driver’s licence at home. 

The extra service will depart from Manchester Victoria at 12.36am on Saturday 4 May after the good 4 u singer’s Friday night gig. It will then call at Newton-Le-Willows and Lea Green before arriving at Liverpool Lime Street.

Concert ticket holders will also be able to use Metrolink tram services to travel to and from the venue into the city centre, free of charge.
