Getting Manchester United tickets for a game at Old Trafford is quite a hard feat to achieve. On the official site, the club states that the vast majority of the home games are sold to members only with just a few notable exceptions. Your best bet to grab a Manchester United home match ticket is for a Cup game. You can call the club’s official Ticket Information Line on 0161 868 8000 (add +44 before it if you’re calling from outside of the United Kingdom) to check on any available Manchester United tickets.
You can dramatically increase your chances of getting a Manchester United Premier League home match ticket by becoming a member of the official OneUnited club. You can do that by calling (+44) 0161 868 8000 or by visiting www.manutd.com/oneunited. There’s an anual membership fee you need to enquire about. You also need to know that the membership expires automatically in May. But as a member, you will receive a special pack with exclusive gifts. You will also get some nice benefits:
• you can apply for tickets to Premiership home games
• you’ll get a £5 discount on Manchester United tickets for home fixtures
• you’ll get free entrance to the home reserve games
• you’ll get the chance to join the Season Ticket Waiting List
• you’ll get several other discounts: 50% at the Museum & Tour Centre, 10% at the Megastore, 10% at the Red Café
• you’ll get two magazines per season
• and more
Even so, due to the extremely large demand for Manchester United home tickets the club runs a ballot for OneUnited members. When tickets are up for sale, members can enter the ballot by calling (+44) 0161 868 8000. The ballot works this way: they open it, accept all applications and work through them until they run out of tickets.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of other disadvantages, one of them being that you cannot apply for more than one ticket as a OneUnited member. This makes it quite unfortunate for you if you live abroad since both you and your friends must become OneUnited members and must all be lucky enough to get tickets to the same game in order to go together.
Online – Ticket Exchanges
Buying Manchester United tickets online through ticket exchanges is easier, but a bit more expensive.
There are several specialized websites that sell Manchester United tickets on the Internet. These websites have basically replaced the offline scalpers, offering both a much more varied ticketing offer and a marketplace where ticket supply and demand meet in order to better price the underlying product, namely soccer tickets. They are also legitimate businesses with safe methods in place for online ordering.
We like WorldTicketShop the most. They are a company that buys and sells tickets to future events, including Manchester United tickets. Here’s a summary of the Manchester United tickets they currently have for sale:
They ship internationally at reasonable rates. Refunds are offered if matches get cancelled for any particular reason. They also offer a 120% refund in case they fail to deliver your tickets on time and you miss the match.
SeatWave is a UK company with a purpose similar to those already mentioned here: buying and selling soccer tickets. Their most important feature though is the fact that while WorldTicketShop is running out of stock quite fast and provide tickets usually only for the more important matches, SeatWave has plenty of stock, even a couple of days before the match and they also cover more obscure soccer matches and teams. Click here to check out their full stock of Manchester United tickets.
StubHub is an American ticket exchange where users can buy and sell tickets freely, by event, in their online marketplace. It is an excellent alternative for Manchester United matches played in the United States, especially the summer friendlies, and also for US based Manchester United fans. To check their Manchester United tickets, click here.
Viagogo is Europe’s largest ticket exchange and basically StubHub’s European equivalent. They are also Manchester United official online ticketing partner. You can check their Manchester United stock here. Do note that in case you’re a OneUnited member and have purchased a ticket through the ballot, you are not eligible to purchase extra tickets through Viagogo’s ticket exchange. Such is life.
