    Gooner asking for Help !!!

    manutd. com is usually where people go for ticket info but ok.
    carling cup and cl group games are normally open general sale once the initial application for season ticket holders and members has passed.
    prem matches are normally season ticket holders and members only as demand is normally higher than supply so it goes to a ballot.
    the wolves cc game is at this time on general sale but upcoming prem game spurs is sold out and wolves in the prem is still being balloted.

    ftr i applied for my wba tickets when the window opened on sept 4th, 6 weeks before the game, which is the norm with prem games.
    and yes i got the 5 tickets i applied for as all 5 of us were members.
    in other words its 1 ticket per member, a member can only purchase a ticket for a non member if the tickets are on general sale.

    even if your not serious, this might help someone who would genuinely like to go to a match

    • Lynden many thanks. I am totally serious and have been to the Utd official site. It is run along the same lines as the Arsenal tickets site. Yep we have a stock a red and silver membership cards shared between friends and family.

      Just love footie and have to say I have never been to OT so would love it. Not prepared to get the membership though. The group stage will do.

      Cheers Lynden very clear info.

      • If its a one off game Andy and you dont want to pay for membership etc (and I am not advocating this) but touts may be your best bet. There are always plenty of people selling on the day and depending how long you want to wait before kick off you can sometimes get them for a few quid more than face value. Granted its not a guaranteed way of getting a ticket but it works most times. They are normally milling about on the road up towards The Trafford pub (runs up from the East Stand)

        I normally get my tickets from other season ticket holders but obviously this isnt an option for you. Dont think I have ever applied via the website.

        Like I said, some will disapprove of the tout option but gets you a ticket if you are a one off visitor most of the time.
