Buying Tickets For Football Matches in London and Europe
We recommend buying tickets to football matches and other sporting events through authorized sites.
This including second-hand sites, but never from ticket touts or from sites that do not give you a guarantee.
We recommend buying the ticket from secure sites that also offer a level of guarantee.
Most of the available tickets are second hand (secondary marketplaces), prices might be higher or lower than face-value tickets
Ticket Compare is a price comparison site between various sites like StubHub, Football ticket pad, Ticketnetwork, Seatsbay, Wowtickets, Live football tickets, SportsEvents365, Ticketmaster, Viagogo, Ticket4Football, The Ticket Factory and more websites that sell tickets.
You can find their tickets to most English matches, including the Premier League as well as many European league matches, including UEFA Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, FIFA World Cup, and many more.
Tickets for football matches in London can be found when one of the London football team plays at home.
You can find a dedicated page for each English premier league London football team here: Chelsea, Arsenal, West-Ham, Crystal Palace and Fulham (Fulham relegated in 2019).
Sporting events and especially football are like another religion for many British people, tickets to important events like semi-finals or derby match (such as Arsenal V Chelsea) are usually hard to find or very expensive and we therefore recommend you book early.
Sometimes tickets are limited to members or season ticket holders only and in these circumstances we recommend you buy a second-hand ticket, one which was brought by someone who can no longer attend (ticket returns).
London Football Tickets – How Does It Work?
Tickets for the larger football teams in London such (Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Fulham) are all sold first to members or season ticket holders. The priority on these lists depends on what type of membership you have.
As an example Arsenal has 4 levels:
Platinum / Gold Members
Junior Gunners Members
On their official page http://www.aresenal.com/tickets you can see which tickets are currently available for sale to which matches and which level. Remember, these are the official tickets and you may still be able to find second-hand tickets on some of the sites listed above.
There is also a level called Non Member, although the chances of tickets being available at this level are slim to none, unless the team is doing particularly badly in the season and their supporters have given up or its a particularly uninteresting match, such as between the team and minor team or near the end of the season where the match has less impact on the overall position of the team in the league.
Your Options For London Football Tickets
Option 1 – Membership
Become a member of your chosen football team at the beginning of the season and then follow the team website to see when tickets at your membership level become available for sale.
This is recommended if you are planning on going to see many matches or are regularly in London.
You should note that one membership will only allow you to buy one ticket per match and sometimes there is a long waiting list for membership.
Option 2 – Club or Box
Buy a Club Level Membership (several thousand pounds) or a private box (several tens of thousands of pounds) at your favoured stadium.
This is recommended if you buy it to your business or plan to go to many matches and can afford it.
Option 3 – Second Hand Tickets
Buy your tickets from members who have already purchased tickets but then are not able to go to a match (second-hand tickets), sometimes this may even be your only option for matches that are officially sold out or very popular. This is also an opportunity to find cheaper tickets to less popular matches.
This is also, in our opinion, the best option for tourists or those who see only the occasional match.
You should be aware that tickets may not be cheap, and regularly cost more then £100 for important matches.
If you do decide to go for this option, we strongly recommend you only use sites that provide a guarantee, where you can be sure the tickets are real and the seller only receives your money once you have the tickets in your hands.
As there is a big difference between the tickets prices in each websites, We recommend to us a price comparison site that we believe are trustworthy as Ticket Compare it will help you to compare prices between the various sites that sell tickets on the same page.
What Not To Do
Do not buy tickets from ticket touts, especially not outside the football stadiums or on sites like eBay or gumtree. This is illegal, but you could also end up with fake tickets and loosing your money, if you do, not only will you be out-of-pocket, this may be the only football you see in London:
European Football Match Tickets
Like in London, most European football clubs operate a membership scheme, and if you are not a member you may not find tickets, You can find Europe wide football teams here
Tickets for Sports Events and Extreme Sports
The most popular sports in England are: Football, Tennis, Rugby and Cricket… but there are many other sports in the UK which you can find tickets for.
We have summarised a list of sites where you can find tickets to sporting events in London and sporting events where you can take part too.
