How to buy Arsenal tickets at face value.

Updated on June 19, 2013
Watch Theo Walcott at the Emirates
Watch Theo Walcott at the Emirates

Don't give the touts and scalpers your money. Get face value Arsenal tickets.

The current rising success of the English Premier League seems to be unstoppable. It is widely renowned as the most attractive league in the world, and it is without doubt the most profitable. Earnings from tv deals (the latest lasts for another 4 years), Champions League success and sponsorship deals have seen revenues increase as never before. Couple this with the new influx of ownership from mega wealthy overseas businessmen with their unlimited cash resources, and this gives an indication that any form of downturn is distinctly unlikely.

Latest attendance figures show that the fans are pouring through the turnstiles as never before and the leading clubs are selling out week after week. In fact, since Arsenal moved from their old Highbury home to the brand new Emirates Stadium, which has a capacity of 60,432, there has not been a single premiership league game for which the club have failed to sell every single ticket. Not only have they sold out for every such game, but they have achieved this without having to resort to putting tickets on sale to the general public.

All very well for the club and it’s season ticket holders and members, but not so good for the average working class Arsenal fan or foreign visitor hoping to catch a game. This may well be music to the ears of the ticket touts or scalpers (as they are known in the United States), for they are making vast sums of money. You only have to visit a couple of the ticketing agency sites to comprehend the cash these guys are pulling in. For an example, I’ve just visited an agency website and they are asking £170 for a ticket for the forthcoming Arsenal v Tottenham game. The face value for this is actually £55 which leaves them with a nice little profit of over £100 for just one ticket, and believe me that is nothing compared to when Manchester United or Chelsea are the visitors. Have a look for yourselves, you’ll be surprised.

The thing that bothers me is the fact that the young kids, who are the game’s lifeblood are not going to get a chance to see their team unless they settle for watching the game on the TV, for which they will have to pay (which is another story all together). Arsenal’s traditional grass roots support is typically tough working class north London, and these fans are being driven away to make way for what are now commonly known as Johnny come lately types

Anyway, enough of the facts and figures drivel, let’s get down to business. If you want to watch the Arsenal, then you have two or three options. Go to Arsenal.com and sign up to become a Red Member. This will set you back £36 for a season, and you will receive a membership card and a very attractive gift pack from the club as a bonus. This card will allow you the chance to buy a ticket for every single league game at the Emirates. It works like this. Platinum and Gold card members get first chance to attend the game. Then two months before the game, Sliver card holders get their pick, and finally one month before, you will get your option. Arsenal guarantee that a certain percentage are held back for Red members. Biggest problem using this method is the fact that for the big games you have to be very quick with your booking, and usually there are only the most expensive tickets left. What I tend to do is for a game against say Manchester United, then I let the game sell out. Once the game is sold out, then the club will allow season ticket holders who cannot attend, to sell their tickets on the site for face value, (it’s called ticket exchange). If you are patient, and have the time to constantly check availability, then trust me you will pick up cheap tickets for the top games. I have had tickets for both Chelsea and Manchester United at £50 a time using this method.(Tickets have now gone up in price, so the £50 tickets which I bought, would now be £62). When you book your ticket online, your card is activated, and this allows it to open the turnstile on the day of the game. If you can’t be bothered with all this, then you can just take a chance on match day and stand outside the booking office about an hour before the kick off, and hope someone has a spare to offload, although the chances of a cheap ticket for a top game this way are pretty slim. You could also try one of the pubs where the core grass roots type fans drink before the game, and hope someone can help you out, but again, unlikely for a big game. Also try joining one of the ‘old school type’ fans forums, although the users can be a suspicious tight knit crowd, once you have gained their trust and contributed good content to the forum, they will be willing to help you out.

      Hi,

      What are my options for getting two tickets for Arsenal v Dortmund on 26 Nov? The Arsenal site will only sell to people with membership since August 29th so can't do it that way. It's for my uncle (60th birthday) and nephew visiting from scandinavia.

      cheers.

      You could try and list it on craigslist or join the facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2230322824/ and list it there. If you still have no luck, I'm sure you could sell it outside the stadium.

      hi I am from Singapore and would be travelling to london next week. brought a pair of tickets for the arsenal vs besitkas match on 27th Aug (wed) through my country's fan club, but my friend could not make it due to last minute changes. Do you know anywhere I can sell the extra ticket?

      I try to do it on gumtree and ebay but they don't allow pple to sell the ticket even I am a genuine seller selling at face value....

      sigh, my last hope is to go to the stadium to sell it, but not sure if there will be any takers actually...

      Hi!

      I'm travelling to London in November.

      I really want to score two tickets for Arsenal Burnley game on 1st of November.

      Do you think it will be possible to buy the tickets without membership?

      If not.. If I buy membership will I be 100% able to buy tickets? (we really can't afford to throw £80 away).

      Thank you for your answer!!

      Hi KP.

      The best thing for you to do is phone the Arsenal Box Office and ask them if they intend to post the Emirates Cup tickets to you or if they want you to collect them from the Box Office, but explain your travel time constraints to them. Also ask how far they have got with processing your Red Membership and what you should do if it will not get to you before you leave for London. The Box Office phone number is 020 7619 5000 but I think when calling from the USA you have to dial 011 44 20 7619 5000. It is definitely best to use the ticket exchange in my opinion, otherwise there will only be upper tier tickets available to you and these are more expensive. If you chose the ticket exchange as the way to go, and your card does not arrive in time, you can use my friends as he will not be able to get to the game.

      Hello,

      I am going to be visiting London from Washington DC in August. A few months ago I bought tickets to the Emirates Cup matches via the general sale. I was not emailed any tickets, will I have to pick them up at the stadium?

      Also, I purchased an Arsenal membership a few days ago, but my membership card won't arrive before I leave for London. Would you recommend the ticket exchange as the best way to go about getting a ticket for the first game of the season against Crystal Palace? If I did buy the ticket as a Red Member, how would I be able to get into the stadium without my membership card?

      I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!

      According to Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, Arsenal will be allocated 25,000 tickets. Anyone belonging to Arsenal's away scheme (approx 3,000 people) will be guaranteed a ticket. All season ticket holders who have attended 3 or more away games in the past two seasons will also be assured of a ticket. The remaining tickets will go to season ticket holders determined by a random ballot. As there are 45,000 season ticket holders, there are going to be a lot of dissapointed people I'm afraid.

      FA Cup final tickets are a different ball game I'm afraid. Arsenal will probably receive between 25,000 and 30,000 tickets, as will Hull, and the rest will be split between various football organisations and corporates. Arsenal's share will be taken by Season Ticket holders, so unless you are lucky and happen to bump into someone who has one and is unable to attend, then I'm afraid there is no chance.

      Hi Ricardo

      There are plenty of seats available at the moment. Two together cost between £50 and £55 each, and are situated in the top tier behind the goal. There will be plenty outside the ground on the day, but the touts will add their mark up on. They will ask for silly money if they can get it, but will probably sell them for about £65 to £70 each. If you need help, send me your email via hubpages.

Do you have any ways to get the tickets with reasonable price? Besides this, how do I differentiate the real or fake tickets? I'm afraid of getting scammed.

      The F.A has listed a number of ticket agents who advertise on the net and have advised people not to use them due to extortionate prices. Why haven't they been shut down by the F.A? Maybe too many people in the know getting blocks of corporate premiership tickets and making a killing every week. Typical corruption

I'll be flying in from abroad so would be OK going through a tout - just have no idea how to spot a fraudster! Oh, and great information here.. Should have gone down the Red Member route but things are very different in the US when it comes to buying tickets!

      Thanks Skinhead. You're a great asset to the world of Arsenal supporters.

      My only worry about selling on is that if I don't get my cards back then I'm screwed for the next match I've paid for - the Swansea City game.

      Don't worry about the card, nobody looks at them. You just swipe them at the turnstile and it automatically opens. The only things that get checked are bags if you have any with you. If you sell on, it's best to sell to a genuine supporter for the price you paid. Just round it up. If the price was say £35.50 plus £1.65 booking fee, then charge £40.

      The staff at Arsenal won't mind will they if the bloke I take with me is bearing a card with a woman's name? Or do they not check?

      Also what's the etiquette on selling on? Do you sell at the price you bought them for?

      Thanks. You can take a non-member with you and just let them use your wife's card, or you can sell them on. If you sell them, then make sure you get at least a £10 deposit on each card from the person you sell to, because that's what it will cost you to repace the cards if the other person fails to return them.

      You will have to get the membership card off the other person, because to gain entry you will have to swipe this card at the turnstile. Normally when you pay the person you will give him an extra £10 or so as a deposit for the card, and the other person will give you this back when you return the card to him.

      If I buy a ticket from someone through Arsenal_tickets or Gunner_tickets via twitter, could I enter the stadium without a membership card? I presume the ticket would have the member's details on it and hence would I be allowed in? The Arsenal website says that along with the ticket you would need the membership card. Please do help to clarify, thanks in advance.

      I'm afraid that the restriction won't be lifted. I would imagine that it has been put in place to stop Munich fans from joining just to get access to this game only. It is extremely likely that there will be no paper tickets available either. Your only hope is to try and buy spares outside the ground, and if this fails, then get off to the nearest pub and watch it there.

I looked at going the membership ticket transfer route, but they slapped a restriction on saying you had to be a member prior to Dec 15/13 in order to take part. Do you have any idea if they might lift this restriction at some point? Do you know if there are paper tickets for this event, or is everything being done through membership cards. Thanks!

      If you use that website the total cost of a ticket will amount to double the face value and the cheapest one I can see on there is 123.21 GBP. If you buy as a Red Member it will be a lot cheaper. A certain amount of tickets are held back for Red Members but you have to be quick. Read the article again and go for the ticket exchange option. I have never yet failed to get one this way.

      All the £28 tickets have been sold already, and the next cheapest are about £33 each face value and they are high up in the heavens.

      Skinhead,

      I'm flying to London this weekend and really, really want to go to the Liverpool game, it's going to be my only chance in a long time. What's the best way to get one ticket and how much do you think it would cost? Thanks.

      Yes, there are tickets available for this game to Red Members priced from £44 to £50. The Red Membership will cost you £31. You would most probably get one cheaper than that by trying the other methods in my article. Email me via hubpages, and if I can find one cheaper for you then I will let you know.

      Hi - I am coming from the U.S.A to attend the Arsenal v Marseille game on November 26, do you know if there is availability for tickets if I joined as a member on Arsenal's website. I am nervous to sign up as I do not availability and this is the only time I can go to a game this season.

      It is a bit excessive to buy a membership for one game. You can try the Arsenal tickets facebook page. Waiting outside the ticket office is mostly ok for one ticket, but it's more difficult for two together. The touts will be there, but there'll charge a premium. Email me direct via hubpages, and if I hear of any spares I'll let you know.

      A friend and I are planning a visit to the Emirates for the Everton game on December 8th. None of us are members, but it seems a bit excessive to buy a whole membership for one game (we live in Copenhagen), so I guess our best shot is to wait outside the ticket office on game day. What do you reckon the chances are of getting two tickets this way for a match like this? Should we look elsewhere (the Arsenal Tickets Facebook page for instance)?

      At the moment these tickets are available to Silver Members, and there are a lot of tickets still available as 3 together. So when it becomes available to Red Members then if you are very quick, I would say that you would get 3 together. I'm afraid that the face value will be about £75 to £95 each though. It opens to Red Members on 25th November.

      Hey,

      We are a family of 3 visiting London in December and we are planning to sign up for the red membership. I'll just like to ask what is the likelihood of getting 3 tickets together for the arsenal vs chelsea game (any seat prices are fine)? Thanks a lot!

      Hi, I've just checked the ticket site and there seems to be a problem with the Southampton game only. My friend is a silver member and he has checked also, and he has a problem with the Southampton game, yet for the Chelsea game it is fine. My advice would be to try again sometime tomorrow. If it sells out, I think you'll get two tickets off the exchange no problem. Any problems, email me direct via hubpages.

      Outside the ticket office in Drayton Park. Between £50 and £75 I would guess.

      Hey fellows,

      I am In London visiting a friend and we're very keen to watch the game tonight against Dortmund at the emirates. Do you believe there is a chance to buy tickets anywhere around the stadium before kick-off? What do think will be the approximate price? Ticket adds on craigslist are rare and look mostly somewhat dubious...Thanks for your help!

      Sorry my friend, but the only to get the tickets you require is to use a very expensive ticket agency.

      Beng,

      Hi, do you need 1 ticket or 2 tickets? You will get 2 tickets for that game off the ticket exchange providing you have two red memberships, but it will be almost impossible to get two together. A direct debit lite red membership is when it is automatically renewed each season, and a lite red membership is when you have to renew it manually.

      Hello guys.

      We are foreigners, we are going to London in March'14 and we want to visit Tottenham - Arsenal match.

      There are 6 of us.

      What is the best way to buy tickets in our case? It would be great if we will seat together, at least 3 + 3 :D

      Great thanks.

      Go gunners.

      In addition, may I know do you have any idea what is the difference between a direct debit lite red member and a lite red member. I am not from UK and not sure of the differences. It is also not explained in the website. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Skinhead,

      Thank you for your informative website. I am visiting london from 22 Dec and was hoping to catch Ars vs Che match. What is the likelihood that I could get atwo ticket when it is open for red member in late november? If the likelihood is 10% then i would not bother to sign up for member now. Thanks for your help!

      There have been a few on the exchange for around £75 to £85 this week, but you won't be able to buy one until you receive your membership card. This could take up to 10 days.

      Hi Skinhead,

      I wanna go to the game against Liverpool, how much are they going for in the exchange at the moment? Also, if I get a Red Membership today, can I still buy a ticket before the membership card arrives? I live in Spain.

      Thanks,

      Mark

      Yes, if you get a red membership you will be allowed to buy a ticket for the Dortmund game providing your membership card is processed and delivered in time. Also, if you buy off a genuine tout he will either lend you a membership card or will give you a paper ticket and you won't need a card.

      Hi Skinhead,

      I'm an Arsenal fan from Brazil, and I want to attend the Champions League game between Arsenal and Dortmund, but I'm not an Arsenal member yet, if I make a Red Membership now I will be allowed to try to buy some tickets on the ticket exchange? and if not, if i buy some ticket from a tout I will be able to enter the stadium without a membership?

      Tickets are going for about £80 on various websites at the moment. If you get a Red Membership it will cost you about £75, so there is not a lot of difference.

      They are selling for about £180 at the moment. Buy a Red Membership, and you should get one for a total of about £100.

      Hi Skinhead69,

      I'm trying to go to the game against Liverpool on November 2nd. What do you think is the best way to go about it? Take a gamble and wait for matchday to try and score a ticket at face value outside the Emirates? Or get a Red Membership and buy one at the Ticket Exchange? How much are they going for at the moment? Thanks a lot.

      Cheers,

      Hi Arnie,

      Glad you got it sorted. For the game against Norwich, just keep checking the ticket exchange between now and up to a couple of days before the game. As the game is already sold out, the exchange should soon open. I usually wait until the last week, but if I were you I would keep checking as soon as it opens, just in case a junior ticket becomes available.

      Arnie1969 3 years ago

      Hi Skinhead69,

      Turned out to be a direct debit problem. Anyway all resolved now but will have try and get tickets through the ticket exchange. Obviously there is a month to go for the Norwich match, is there a pattern as to when tickets are available via the exchange (e.g) to people tend to wait until the last week before deciding to put them up for sale? So there is no need to panic early on if the only 2 together I can find are really expensive ones?

      Cheers, Arnie

      Hi Skinhead69,

      I bought a red membership for me and a Junior gunners membership for my lad and have received the membership cards etc. I'd already been onto the ticket website and set it up so we were linked and could assign tickets for each other. But this morning the Norwich tickets went on sale to red members and the site wouldn't let me buy 2 in my name (i can understand that as only 1 ticket per membership) or buy 2 and assign one to my lad. Every time I would try and checkout it would say that my lad's account does not have a valid criteria. So I am a bit lost as to how I am able to buy 2 tickets together. I am happy to pay the adult prioce for him but it just won't let me. Can you help at all? Perhaps I am doing something wrong? Cheers, Arnie
