Arsenal have announced a change to their season ticket pricing for the 2023/24 season. The number of games included in the season ticket will be reduced from 26 to 22, while prices will be increased by an average of 5% (5% in club level, 4% in upper tier, 6% in lower tier).

This comes after the club consulted with season ticket holders and received feedback indicating a desire for more flexibility around attending games, and a wish to make more tickets available to the club’s growing membership base.

According to the club, next season’s season tickets will include 19 home league games and three additional European matches, if the club qualifies for the competition.

Season ticket holders will retain the right to purchase their seat for any additional home cup games on a match-by-match basis.

The club has also claimed that this move will make up to 150,000 extra match tickets available for members to purchase next season.

The price increase is below the current rate of inflation and the club promises to redirect the funds to initiatives that will benefit supporters.

These include investments in Emirates Stadium, improvements to the matchday experience, enhancements to the ticketing system, a further clampdown on ticket touts, a 25% discount on season tickets and match tickets for those up to 24 years of age (up from 21), continued discounts for Cannon members aged 17 and 18, and continued 66% discounts for the Family Enclosure for Junior Gunners.
