We often get asked this question. How do I get a Man Utd season ticket. The simple answer is, it is very difficult with tens of thousands reported to be on the waiting list. But here at Red Devil Threads we want to explain to you how to go about getting your hands on the season ticket you will hold onto for the rest of your life.
Man Utd have over 50,000 season ticket holders. A season ticket holder gets access to the 19 home Premier League games at Old Trafford. This is paid for in advance and ranges from £551 to £1007 per ticket. The holder then has the option to opt into each cup competition on a competition by competition basis (FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Champions League/UEFA Europa League) with the money taken out of the holders account around 1-2 weeks after the competition draw has taken place. Something season ticket holders are fully aware of by recent developments, as United has achieved an impressive feat by drawing in 12 cup games at home, bringing joy to the holders’ bank balances.

United cited the cost of delivering matches had gone up by 40 per cent in the past five years, and 11 per cent in the past 12 months alone, forcing the increase in price. The cheapest adult season ticket currently sits at £551 whilst the most expensive general admission season ticket is £1007. The price of the ticket depends on the part of the stadium your seat is.
Cup Season Tickets
Cup Season Ticket seats are made available when a Full Season Ticket holder opts out of all cup competitions. Fans pay up front for the cost of any guaranteed home cup games e.g. 3 UEFA group stage home games, and all tickets will be charged at Official Member prices. Remaining games are then debited at the point of qualification, from the card details provided at the point of purchase. Payment is usually taken very quickly after the draws / qualification, so it’s important to keep your card details up to date at all times. If a Cup Season Ticket holder fails to make payment for a game, their Cup Season Ticket will be cancelled for the remainder of the season.
Cup Season Ticket holders will have fist choice on sales for the following season. Fans will be required to select different seats each season, as Full Season Ticket holders change their opt-in status. Cup Season Ticket holders also have priority to purchase a Full Season Ticket, ahead of those who have paid a deposit and purchased a Premium Official Membership.
