There is now just over three weeks left until the 2018-19 season and supporters all over the country are clambering away to secure football tickets to watch their favourite sides in the Premier League, Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and League Two.
In the top-flight, Arsenal are entering an exciting and intriguing period after Arsène Wenger’s departure in May following 22 years at the helm prompted the arrival of former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery.
With The Gunners, you can buy single football tickets, season tickets, memberships and hospitality packages through the club, ticket exchanges or on secondary ticketing websites throughout the new campaign with demand set to be at the highest it’s been for a long time.
So are Arsenal football tickets online good value in to other Premier League clubs? The North London club, without a title since 2004, have the most expensive season tickets which range from £891 to £1768.50 for adult admission.
The club also sell the most expensive single football tickets, ranging from £26 to £95.50 for adult admission, whilst away football tickets are capped at £30 like all the other 19 football teams in the top flight following the putting into practice of the rule back in 2016.
It’s crazy to think you have to pay at least £391 at the Emirates Stadium to watch Arsenal when you can bag a season ticket at Huddersfield Town for just £100, or some football fans can buy single football match tickets to watch Liverpool match for just £9 – astonishing.
You will have to pay no higher than £299 for a football match if you’re an adult wanting a Huddersfield Town season football ticket, whilst six English Premier League football clubs’ – AFC Bournemouth, Burnley, Huddersfield, Swansea, Watford and West Bromwich Albion – charge less than half than Arsenal for their dearest single football tickets online.
The amount giant European clubs charge their fans to watch some of the biggest stars in world football puts Arsenal, and other Premier League clubs, to shame though.
You can buy a season ticket at both Barcelona (£172.23) and Real Madrid (@177) for less than £200 to see the likes of Luis Suarez, Luka Modric, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Sergio Ramos in action at two of the most iconic football stadiums around in the Santiago Bernabeu and Nou Camp.
Bayern Munich’s football club pricing is even more astounding; the German giants offer adult season football tickets from just £67 and single season tickets for £12 if you want to secure your seat at the Allianz Arena to see stars like Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski, and Manuel Neuer light up the pitch week-in-week-out.
The answer to the question ‘are Arsenal football tickets good value’ would be a straight-up ‘no’ if you were to take this into consideration as well as the fact that you could buy a season ticket at Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus and still have money spare to spend how much it is to bag one at Arsenal.
Arsenal have their own big stars though, a state-of-the-art stadium and play in the most competitive league in Europe, so you can’t blame them for charging so much because supporters actually do pay. It’s certainly not a cheap hobby but worth it? I’d say so.
