Manchester City unveils “Tunnel Club” for fans

English Premier League team Manchester City has opened its tunnel club to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at teams before, during and after matches.

For the first time during Monday evening’s game against Everton, fans could pay £299 (approx US$385) to have what the club call unrivalled backstage access that immerses fans into the game like never before.

The package promises unrivalled views into the players’ tunnel with an intimate insight into the players’ preparations, seats directly behind the dug-out letting customers see the game the way the managers see it and  after the whistle blows fans can watch and listen first-hand as the managers and players go about the post-match interviews.
