City Square is the place to be on Monday evening ahead of the mouth-watering Manchester derby.
The sold-out signs went up weeks ago, and there's lots to entertain those lucky enough to have a ticket for this hugely-anticipated game.
Heed the Goat! Shaun Goater will join Hugh, Natalie and Fanzone Danny onstage for Live from City Square, and there'll be another City old boy in the shape of David White for pre-match chat and predictions.
There'll be a flavour of the Middle East with Etihad Airways and the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority showing off some of the best the region has to offer. Check out the falconry display, maybe get the henna artist to give you a special derby design, and you can feel the need for speed with the Etihad F1 car that will be on show for the night.
From the heat of the desert to the subzero temperatures of the Chill Factore - Grab a photo with the Avalanche Ball and give yourself a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.
Lancashire hot pot and fish pie are on the menu from the cafes, which will be open from just after 5pm.
As ever we'll have all the build-up to the game on the big screens, with the all-important teamsheet read out at around 7pm, coach David Platt giving an insight on the mood in the camp and action from derbies of yesteryear.
Don't miss out on a packed programme in City Square, then take your seats in time for the big match itself on what is sure to be a memorable night under the lights.
City Square - where else would you rather be?
