The Etihad stadium is opening its turnstiles on Friday night to any fan wanting to catch a glimpse of City's star's of the future.

EDS Coach Lombardo told the club's official website;

'It will be  a great experience for them and an important one for me too as I`ve never sat on the bench there as a manager before,' and

"Obviously the stadium won`t be full with 46,000 people like a first team game but it`s still an important step for them.'

Guys, I think all of these U/21 matches will be free entry. Most will be played at Ewen Fields, Hyde FC but they must play at least 2 at the Etihad. The beauty is that because the U/21s now have a properly structured league not too many of them have gone out on loan so you will see them.
