Ticketing policy and information
As an officially recognised supporters club of Manchester United FC, we are able to offer our paid members access to tickets for home games at Old Trafford across the 2017/18 Premier League season.
Before applying for tickets please make sure you read the information below. If you have any additional questions regarding ticket applications then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What is the club’s ticket allocation?
The club receives an allocation for two categories of tickets. These are: Category A tickets and Category B tickets.
Category A matches:
- vs Tottenham Hotspur (28 October)
- vs Manchester City (9 December)
- vs Chelsea (24 February)
- vs Liverpool (10 March)
- vs Arsenal (28 April)
- vs Watford – final home game of the season (13 May)
Category B matches:
- All other home fixtures
How many tickets are available?
The number of tickets which the club is allocated is determined by the number of paid members as at 31 July.
For Category A games (see above) the club receives one ticket for every ten paid members. So for example if 90 paid members are registered by 31 July then the club will receive an allocation of 9 tickets for these matches.
For Category B games (all other home fixtures) the club is allocated one ticket per paid member.
Am I guaranteed a ticket if I am a paid member?
While it is extremely rare that the club has had to turn down an application for tickets from paid members, we are mindful that we only receive a limited allocation, particularly for Category A games and as such we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all requests.
Our first priority for ticket requests is to renewing members who have paid prior to the 31 July cut-off date. This is due to the fact that keeping our loyal members is crucial to BMUSC maintaining its status as an official supporters club (and as such having access to purchase match-day tickets at Old Trafford).
Renewing members are required to notify the club by the relevant date (see below) if they wish to register their interest in acquiring tickets. If the allocation of tickets has not been exhausted at this point then remaining tickets will be made available to all BMUSC members.
When do I need to apply for tickets by?
- Category A games – ticket requests must be submitted at least 8 weeks in advance.
- Category B games – ticket requests must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance.
When will I know if my ticket application has been successful?
For Category A games, the club must go through an assessment process of all applications and check if all available tickets have been allocated so this can sometimes take a little while to resolve.
For Category B games however, we are usually able to confirm your ticket application within 5 business days.
How much are tickets purchased through BMUSC and how do I pay for my them?
Tickets purchased via the club are priced at face value.
BMUSC has a set fee for match day tickets of $90 (which takes into account foregin exchange rates and transfer fees).
Once your application has been approved you will be contacted directly by BMUSC with account details for payment to be made to..
How do I collect my tickets?
Your One United membership card acts as your ticket. This ensures that only paid members have access to tickets via official supporters clubs.
On the day you can simply scan the barcode on the back of your card at the turnstile entry into Old Trafford.
