Founded in 1886, Arsenal Football Club is one of England’s oldest and most successful sporting institutions – and tickets to matches are always in high demand.
Arsenal plays its matches at Emirates Stadium in north London, which can accommodate over 60,000 fans. While Londoners make up the majority of the crowds, the club also has a global appeal and a large number of tourists regularly attend matches too. Arsenal play 19 league fixtures at the Emirates each season, plus a handful of cup matches. To check dates for games scheduled for the upcoming 2021/22 season, fixture lists are readily available to view online. Below are three of the best online resources for buying tickets.
Ticketgum are currently our favourite option for purchasing Arsenal tickets online. The well-established sports tickets broker has excellent availability for all games at Emirates Stadium – and at affordable prices too. We found tickets starting at £89 GBP for a game against Norwich this September. However, for more prestigious games, such as against Chelsea or Tottenham, prices can be significantly higher.
The company works with a network of suppliers, and the tickets on sale have usually been advertised by people who can’t attend specific games and so are looking to sell their tickets. This means that Ticketgum receive the tickets prior to reselling them, so there’s almost no risk of fakes. Tickets tend to be shipped 2 to 3 days before the fixture at the very latest. They have a very good Trustpilot rating too, meaning you can use their service with full confidence and peace of mind. Ticketgum also have designated collection point where you can pick up your tickets, which is particularly convenient when buying tickets at the last minute, as well as hotel delivery.
Live Football Tickets
Operating online for more than a decade, Livefootballtickets.com are another highly regarded ticketing company. While they charge marginally higher fees compared to Ticketgum, we found they tend to offer an even larger selection of tickets available for certain games. One significant perk is that the website often provides the option of buying 4 tickets with the seats all next to each other – perfect for large groups keen to attend a game together. During our searches for Arsenal games for the approaching 2021/22 season, tickets were available for all home fixtures, with prices starting at £175 GBP for less prestigious games such as Arsenal vs Aston Villas in late October – somewhat more expensive than equivalent matches on Ticketgum. On the plus side, the site offers a “150%” money-back guarantee if, for any reason, you fail to receive your tickets, or are unable to access the stadium with your tickets.
If you’re seeking premium tickets including food and refreshments, take a look at Circuit Hospitality, who claim to only sell authorised and official packages. The Bristol-based company specialise in Premier League hospitality and are Arsenal’s official hospitality reseller. They offer Emirates Stadium VIP experiences in their Club Arsenal Package, which includes dining and drinks together with match seats in either a Champions Club Private Box or the Club Level. Depending on the prestige of the game, prices range between £329 GBP per person all the way up to several thousands of pounds for use of a private box. Among the perks included in these packages are a parking space, a match day seat, gourmet food, drink and snacks, a match day programme, and museum and stadium tour vouchers.
