How to get EPL tickets in advance?

by georgeeng


I will be in Manchester for hols in Nov. I wish to go to the match "Man U Vs Man C". What is the fastest and esiest way to secure tickets. The date of the match is on 30th Nov 2008.


Re: How to get EPL tickets in advance?

is the official United website for ticket sales. is the City website.

Neither site has the tickets on sale yet, as far as I can tell. It is likely that the match will be quickly sold out.

No doubt you'll be able to find ticket touts outside the ground on the day. They are illegal, of course, and tickets will be more expensive.

Matches between the two Manchester teams are always sold out and I expect there will be a large number of regular supporters who cannot get tickets. You might be lucky but be prepared to have a back up plan. I suggest you look for large pubs or bars near where you are staying that show sport and plan to go to one of those to watch the game. The atmosphere in the city that weekend will be buzzing with excitement and everyone will be talking about the game, people will be talked about as Reds (Man Utd) or Blues (Man City). I suggest you do not wear either colour and don’t obviously support one team until you know whether those around you are Reds or Blues. The rivalry between these two teams is fierce and will be even more so since Man City were taken over and now have a lot of money. It’ll be a great atmosphere in Manchester and I’m sure you will enjoy it wherever you watch the game.

I'm afraid it is unlikely you will get a ticket for this game, at a reasonable price anyway.
There is a premiership game on the 29th at Wigan, close to Manchester, they play WBA. I think tickets will be easy to find for that one.

If your wanting an official ticket, the only ones you will have a chance at getting is if you buy either a hospitality ticket or a dreambreak,

These are the official ticket agency for tourists wanting to come and be ripped off by the global icon that is manchester united. You could chance it with the touts but expect to pay a fair wack from them without the extras you get from the club.

As for the message above if your going to watch it in a pub in Manchester you need to be supporting Man City, United fans come from London.

Sunday 30th November

Man C v Man U 1330
Chelsea v Arsenal 1600

both live on TV

Monday 1st December at 2000

Liverpool v West Ham
live on TV

I know what I shall be doing. Consuming excessive amounts of beer in a bar while watching all three!

Seriously, casual spectators have almost no chance of a ticket for the top EPL games these days. Once season ticket holders, members and the away supporters allocation have been dealt with (and the corporates of course) there are rarely, if ever, any tickets left for general sale.

Which is why the games are on television.

Travel Tips for Manchester


by Andrew_Liu

Old plant
It is an abandoned old plant building constructed with red brick. The plant name clearly:"BROWN BROTHERS LTD." Seemly it was built many years before. A big board is hung up on the wall: “FOR SALE TO LET”. It hasn’t changed for several months when I stayed in Manchester.
It is a typical example. A lot of old building like this were found everywhere in Manchester. The scene made a miserable feeling in my mind.
The world changed rapidly. We must adjust ourself to suit the world. I’m glad to see Manchester is changing well gradually. Many of new technical type of industries and service are developed. I think the building “…..
has been used now.
An investigation shows that the North of England become poorer but the South - richer. From 90 era of last century the resident of Manchester has reduced 10% already!

Heaving, Kecking, Barfing

by JamalMorelli

Drinking is a popular thing to do. So is barfing. Seeing someone barfing on the street from drinking too much is quite common.

Why do they do it?

Well, it's not religious! These are rational people!

Well, it's not repression! Brits are free!

Well, it's not alcohol poisoning!

Yes. It is. Have your camera ready for a Mancunian Barftacular.

Soccer teams

by jayhawk2000

I've heard there are not one, but two of these 'Premier League football teams.' FOUR if you count Wigan and Bolton as part of Manchester.

Manchester United is supposedly the world's most famous, successful and popular team on earth. Or so I've been told. Apparently they have more fans in Singapore than England. You can learn about them at Old Trafford, their 'Theatre of Screams', is open for tours and you can also visit their museum and megastore.

Then there is Manchester City, who have relocated from Maine Road to the stadium built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Find out about the move and keep track of their fortunes at They also do tours of the grounds, which sit in the shadow of the country's tallest sculpture, the B of the Bang.

Unlike Glasgow there doesn't seem to be much arimony between the two groups of club supporters, but perhaps that's because City hasn't won nearly as many trophies? And who knows, with Man U owned by an AMERICAN (instead of Irish horse racers) the wheel of fortune may turn!

Irwell Sculpture Trail

by tvor

A 30 mile footpath along the Irwell starting in Salford Quays through Bury and up into the Pennines past Bacup. The environmental type sculptures are organized in sections so you can go visit a group and look around in the area i.e. Peel Park, Radcliffe, Bury. The website has downloadable leaflets on each section of the trail for a good map.

Biggest M&S in Europe

by M.E.R.V about Mark's & Sparks

The biggest outlet in entire Europe? So wot!?!?! Well I cant be arsed myself... the only thing I like about this place is its location and the glass walls. There is a connecting bridge on the 2nd or 3rd storey which brings you directly into Arndale Centre. And oh, M&S undies are really comfy. Hehehe... Underwear...nice!
