There are many ways to purchase match day and season tickets to go and watch Arsenal play at the Emirates.
The club has made it easy to see the Gunners with many methods available, including online, on the telephone, by post, or in person at the Arsenal North Bridge Box Office.
In the modern day, the online ticket service is by far the most popular among fans, with its quick and simple process on the streamlined website making it easy. Here, we’ll be giving you some general information on Arsenal match day tickets and season tickets, how they compare to the rest of the Premier League, and how to go about buying the tickets.
Arsenal tickets compared to the rest of the league
It’s a well-known fact that, in the Premier League, the cost to watch a club in London can be significantly more expensive than it is to watch a team elsewhere in the country. But, while the ceiling for matchday tickets can be quite high in London, the floor can be comparatively low.
Coming into the 2018/19 season, Arsenal offered the most expensive tickets at £97 for a category A matchup, while Huddersfield Town decided to hold their ticket prices at £30. The Terriers also set their lowest ticket price at £30, which is more expensive than Arsenal’s cheapest ticket of £27. But, Arsenal’s cheapest ticket is triple that of Liverpool’s cheapest, which stands at only £9.
Even though Arsenal had the most expensive tickets this season, they’re not overly more expensive than other teams in the region, with Chelsea capping their tickets at £87 and Tottenham Hotspur’s priciest ticket set at £95.
When it comes to season tickets, the most expensive Arsenal season tickets cost in excess of £1,768, which places them second overall this season. The Gunners’ most expensive season ticket clocks in at over £500 more than third (Chelsea) but just over £400 cheaper than Spurs’, which cost a whopping £2,200. The five most expensive season tickets in the Premier League are all set by London clubs, with Fulham, West Ham United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Spurs making up the group. Manchester City, who won the Premier League last season, capped their season tickets at £940.
How to buy Arsenal season tickets
As you would expect from a club as popular as Arsenal, the season tickets are in high demand. So, right now, the best way to get in line for a season ticket is to join the waiting list. On the Arsenal website, you can find the club’s membership option of Season Ticket Waiting List which costs £15.
But, payment options for memberships and tickets on the website aren’t as advanced as on other websites. While you can pay with PayPal on Arsenal Direct, you can’t use eWallet services for Arsenal tickets. Online, the use of eWallets has become a popular way to pay thanks to services like Trustly being safe and easy to use. Popular sites like Kongregate offer purchases through Neteller but these eWallets even allow people to play casino without registration as they act as a trusted payment service. With Arsenal, however, only MasterCard, Visa Credit, and Visa Debit are available.
So, if you’re looking to get a hold of one of the Premier League’s most sought after, and potentially most expensive, season tickets, it’s best to get in the waiting list and have your credit or debit card at the ready.
