Established in 1886, Arsenal Football Club is one of England’s oldest and most successful sporting institutions, having won 13 league titles and a record 13 FA Cups. The club plays its matches at Emirates Stadium in north London, which can accommodate over 60,000 spectators. While Londoners still make up the majority of the crowd, Arsenal also enjoys a truly global appeal and a large number of tourists regularly come to attend matches and soak up the unique atmosphere of English football.

The season traditionally runs from August to May, with matches taking place throughout these months, including the December festive period. Arsenal play 19 Premier League fixtures at the Emirates each season as well as a handful of cup matches too. Games are typically played on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays), but there are often midweek fixtures as well. To check dates for upcoming matches for the 2019/20 season, fixture lists are readily available to view online.
Seatsbay are presently 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 around £80 GBP for upcoming games against Southampton and Brighton. However, for more prestigious games, such as against Man City or Liverpool, prices can be significantly higher. The company works with a network of suppliers, and the tickets on sale have usually been put there by members who can’t attend specific games. This means that Seatsbay 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, and you can also ask for them to be sent to a hotel to be collected. For London clubs like Arsenal, Seatsbay also have designated locations around the city centre where you can pick up your tickets, which is particularly convenient when you buy tickets at the last minute.
Operating online for more than a decade, Livefootballtickets.com are another highly regarded ticketing company. While they charge marginally higher fees compared to Seatsbay, 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 rest of the 2019/20 season, tickets were available for all remaining home fixtures, with prices starting at £66 for less prestigious games such as Arsenal vs Bournemouth in early October. The site also 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.
