Football in Britain was historically a game enjoyed by the working class - the same can no longer be said.

Whilst the Premier League's global growth continues to expand, atmospheres in English stadiums continue to get worse and worse.

Ticket prices have continued to rise far above the rate of inflation since the Premier League's inception in 1992.

Abu Dhabi-owned Manchester City have received huge investment over the last 10 years and have cemented their status as one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Despite that, the atmosphere at the (often half-full) Etihad is regularly criticised and the introduction of the 'Tunnel Club' is unlikely to improve things.

Hosting Everton on Monday night, Sky Sports cameras showed the lavish new 'Tunnel Club' at Manchester City to viewers watching at home.

Fans, forbidden from wearing trainers, were able to watch the players up close through a glass window in the tunnel.

It reportedly costs £15,000 for a season ticket with prices for tonight's game against Everton starting at £249 per head.

As part of the marketing on the club website, it reads:

"A premium networking space, perfect for you and your clients with a concierge and dedicated account manager catering for your every need."

Manchester City raised prices of season tickets for the 2017-18 campaign but still have 2000 season tickets available in the South Stand for only £299.

Fans on Twitter were far from impressed by the Blues latest embrace of 'modern football'.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was asked about the new facilities last week and his response suggests he isn't the biggest fan either.

The Spanish coach was hesitant to praise the extraordinary new set-up. Watch the video below.

Set to move in at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, Tottenham Hotspur are expected to implement a similar feature in their new stadium.
