Still regarded by many across the globe as the biggest football team in the world, Manchester United is a club with a history few clubs can rival.

It’s little surprise then, that during the season Old Trafford is filled to the brim every time United play at home, which can make getting tickets a little tricky, particularly for the bigger games.

Where can I buy Manchester United tickets?

There are three official avenues for buying tickets to games. The first, and most common, is through the club’s website.

Tickets for Premier League games are sold exclusively to club members, United say this is due to the unprecedented demand and to ensure fans of the club get priority. An adult membership costs around £32 for the year. Games in cup competitions, particularly in the earlier stages of the competition, are much easier to purchase and sometimes go on sale to the general public.

The second method is via phone — Manchester United tickets can be purchased by calling 0161 868 8000, pressing option 1.

The final way to get tickets through the club is in person at the ground. The club’s Ticket and Membership Services office can be found in car park W2 at Old Trafford and is open 8am-8pm, Monday to Friday and 9am-5pm on Saturdays.

Ticketsalso appear on resale sites like StubHub and Viagogo, though prices are often inflated.
