Manchester City are celebrating their 125-year anniversary by launching a new tour at the Etihad Stadium.

'Ardwick Association Football Club' officially became Manchester City on April 16, 1894 and the new tour will feature an exhibition which is rich in history.

But there will also be futuristic elements, including augmented reality in the press room which will allow visitors to 'interact' with manager Pep Guardiola.

The tour includes 3D holographic content too, as well as a 360-degree cinema screen.

Chief operating officer, Omar Berrada said: 'Announcing the "Manchester City Tour" today is the perfect way to mark the Club's 125th birthday, recognising our rich history and heritage, and celebrating the journey that the club and our fans have been on together.

'We're delighted to have created a tour that brings together physical artefacts and technology for the first time, giving our fans an opportunity to immerse themselves with the Manchester City story in a unique way. We hope that it will make for an unforgettable experience.'

Among those physical artefacts is an official certificate that documents the club's name change in 1894.
