Many moons ago I used to take Emily to Manchester to watch Manchester City play. We really loved it.
|Makes me laugh how she looks so much like Rosie here|
|She was about 5 here :)|
Since we moved to Liverpool and
We started off at the City Shop and were escorted to the Chairman's Suite. I loved the idea of watching the match after having a lovely meal, nice wine - and then out onto the terrace with heated seats - lovely!
We then went down to the media room where all of the post-match interviews take place. The tour guide Lynn was brilliant, very helpful, great with the kids and she gave us loads of information about what each room and space was used for. After this we went into the player's warm-up area which is a pre-match area for the players to warm-up. This was where the girls got to score a goal in the small nets - they loved this! Alice was adamant that her kick was the hardest!
We then moved on to the player's changing rooms. The kids loved it in here and we got some great photos, funny faces pulled included of course!
|You can never get them all to smile at the same time!|
|...or not pull silly faces!|
We then went down the tunnel as the player's would on match day and stood at the side of the pitch. The ground looks really huge when it is almost empty. Lynn explained about how the ground had been extended over the years and told us that the capacity aims to be 62,000 by 2017 - which is quite impressive.
|Aged 12 now - doesn't time fly!|
|Aaah - all smley!|
All in all we had a really great time. I think the stadium tour is a great day out and would also make a great Christmas or birthday present for someone.
