Thank you all for your continued patience. We are having difficulties integrating the payment processing methods for the ticket requests. We are working with PayPal to resolve and should have an update soon.
Apologies for the continued delay. We are all ready to launch, and awaiting PayPal’s approval for us to accept Direct Credit Cards through their service. We applied a week ago and expected it to be ready already. Please subscribe to this thread if you haven’t done so already (subscribe button in the top right of this page) as I will be posting here when it’s live.
Can someone enlighten me on the likelihood that a ticket request is processed/approved? I’m completely new to this so I am just trying to gauge what my best bet would be in regards to purchasing tickets. I have read through the FAQ so I understand the formal process, but it seems to be very hit or miss which is especially problematic for me because apparently you only find out if you have been awarded your request 2 to 3 weeks prior to the game. I am afraid that if I rely on getting a ticket through ArsenalAmerica, then I will be SOL if it falls through.
Yeah its a bit of a risk to take to travel abroad and show up empty handed. i wish there was a bit more transparency about the amount of tickets provided in each game and where you are at in the queue for each request. you might be better off getting a red membership and buying of the arsenal website. i will say about arsenal america, as long as you put a request in earlier enough you can get access to games you would not likely with a red membership (spuds)
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.
