Hello, I’m a Gooner since about 2008, but new here. I’m committed to a London trip for the Bournemouth match for my family of four. We have paid for plane tickets and accommodation, and as we’re be there November 22/23, we’re hoping to also catch a Champions League match.
I have Arsenal Red memberships for all members of my family, with the goal of getting tickets for both matches for us that way. I joined Arsenal America a few minutes ago, and after reading a bit on the FAQ and forums, I can’t figure out whether I should be pursuing tickets here or not.
If you did not apply through Arsenal America it may be too late. Since you all ready have red memberships make sure all your accounts are linked so one person can purchase all four tickets. You will not be able to purchase tickets until 30 days before your match. Tickets go on sale from Arsenal at 10AM GMT so figure that time difference for you get up early and hope you can be in that first 3,500 (RED level tickets made available for each home match). I was able to get tickets this way for the CL match on 10.19.16.
I have used http://www.ticket2football.com and they are great. The tickets cost a lot more but you can buy them as early as you want. You also get some perks like a Stadium tour and a program and free halftime drinks. (Club Level package incl. Business seats at Club Level, access to Club Level bars and restaurants, halftime drinks, match program, voucher for Stadium Tour & Arsenal Museu, 5 GBP gift voucher for Arsenal Shop – Seating together.)
There is also the Arsenal ticket exchange where season ticket holders can put up their tickets for sale. Never tried this but I imagine it might be hard to get four seats together.
You may have figured this all out all ready, but maybe this will help anyone in the future.
Arsenal America was formed in August 2001 by several fans of Arsenal Football Club who realized that Arsenal had no official supporters club in the United States. Granted official status in 2005, our mission is connecting fans to each other and the club, locally, nationally, and internationally, both online and in person, through branches, events, and online communities.
