Police are warning people to expect long delays on their commute home from Manchester tomorrow evening ahead of Man City's match against Feyenoord.

In addition to the usual rush hour, we have the large crowds enjoying the Christmas Markets, there is a major concert at the Arena and we welcome thousands of Feyenoord fans who will base themselves around Shambles Square.

“At around 5pm, it is planned that approximately 3,000 Feyenoord supporters will be escorted to the Etihad Stadium.

Commuters and motorists need to plan their journeys to take into account the exceptional volume of people.

We are confident that we can showcase all that is great about our city and ensure everyone visiting can do so in a safe and enjoyable manner.”
