How to Buy Man Utd Tickets

Man Utd tickets can be difficult to find and difficult to understand how to get hold of. The club doesn’t explain in simple terms how to get hold of tickets officially. This can result in fans giving ticket touts your hard earned cash. Here will we explain how the process works. So let’s start at the beginning.

Each season Man Utd enter the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Champions League or Europa League depending on which of the European competitions they qualify for (if any). They play 19 home Premier League games each season. In addition to this they will play a minimum of 3 home Champions League/Europa League group stage games (this will change at the beginning of the 2024/2025 season as the UEFA European competitions change format). Carabao Cup and FA Cup games depend on the draw for each round. If United are drawn as the first team, they will play at home; if drawn as the second team, they will play away.

Man Utd Tickets

Man Utd have over 50,000 season ticket holders in a stadium that holds 74,310. Each season ticket holder is given the option as to which cup competitions they opt in to automatically get tickets for. If enough season ticket holders opt out of cup competitions United offer a Cup season ticket to fans. A cup season ticket guarantees you a ticket to each of the cup games that are played at Old Trafford. The remaining seats at Old Trafford are sold to members. If you are not lucky enough to be a full season ticket or cup season ticket holder but still want to go to a game at Old Trafford a membership is your best option.

Membership Types

Man Utd offer a few different types of membership. Premium, Full and Lite are the ones we will concentrate on for now. A premium membership will cost you £65, a full membership £40, and a lite membership £35.

The only difference between the memberships is the merchandise pack you get when you buy the membership. None of them give you any more chance of getting a ticket than the rest. Each membership gives you access to purchase home tickets to all Man Utd games, European away games and Man Utd Women’s team tickets. It also gives you 10% discount in the Manchester United megastores at Old Trafford, online store, museum and stadium tour discounts and Red Cafe discounts. This includes a digital membership card and access to the online yearbook.

The Red Devils have also recently began offering a forwarding membership option. This is specifically for fans who are given tickets from friends or family who can’t use their tickets and can pass the ticket on using a forwarding membership ensuring tickets remain in the name of the person attending the game as Manchester United request. This option has drawn plenty of criticism, widely being branded as exploiting fans for more money.

Man Utd Tickets Website

United’s ticket website can be a nightmare to navigate. Each game will say Buy Now. Once you proceed to the next step, ticket prices can range from £150 to £995. This is because United sell hospitality tickets for all games. Regular tickets are released to members during ticket release dates. These normally take place at 10:00 on certain dates. To stay updated on ticket release dates, consider signing up for Man Utd tickets alert emails.

For bigger games usually against Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and bigger cup games Man Utd adopt a ballot system. Members have approximately 2 weeks to apply for the ballot, and if successful, payment will be immediately deducted from your chosen payment method.

Season ticket holders have the opportunity to sell their tickets back to the club and receive a complete refund. Typically, once these tickets become available on the website, they are quickly claimed by eager buyers. However, it’s worthwhile to invest some time refreshing the website in the days leading up to the game, as there’s a chance that a few tickets may become available for purchase.

Man Utd Tickets Prices

Regular Man Utd tickets range from £36 to £58, depending on the seat location. United offer discounts for seniors, juniors and young adults. On the other hand, hospitality tickets are considerably more costly, with prices spanning from £100 to £995.
