    Need your help UK SF members! Especially those in London and are Gooners.

    I'll be going down to London Jan next year and it's going to coincide with the Arsenal - Man Utd match. Was wondering what's the best way of getting myself a decent ticket, if at all possible?

    Thx guys.

    Not a Londoner, but I attempted to get tickets to Premier League games in London. The best way would be through the official site if they have some sort of fan-to-fan exchange (SeatWave, Ticket Exchange or something of the sort). Tottenham had this, and I was able to buy a ticket at face value with just registering for the website. To give an idea of scalp/tout prices for a match I attempted to get one outside the stadium for Fulham hosting Liverpool a couple of weeks ago. The asking prices were 150 pounds per ticket (face of 50-ish). Once the match began they dropped to 120. They all work together, so it doesn't do any good to try different touts right near the stadium. Another possibility is to stand near a queue to a gate and listen for people saying they have an extra.

    Thanks for that. Hmm.. maybe I should just stick to watching at a pub and I'll get as good an experience?

    Quick online searches quote tickets at around 250 pounds at least?! The official site seems like I have to sign up for some sort of membership for a fee but that only gives me low priority which is made worse by the fact that it's gonna BIG game.
