I'm planning to travel to UK from the 5th of March till the 24th. And while there, I'm really hoping to watch United live at Old Trafford, something that I have been wanting to do for the last 15 odd years.

United play city on the 16th of March, at least that's the schedule right now. Is there a way that I get my hands on two tickets? I'm not a season ticket holder (for obvious reasons) and I'm not really sure where to search.

Does any one of the posters know where can I get this sorted?

Also, if anyone is free is around that time and wouldn't mind sitting and having a chat, then please let me know, it'd be amazing to meet anyone from this site. Oh and if you play football, then I'd love to join in as well.

Thanks a bunch, everyone.

@GDS Might be able to help.

Without touts you could ballot (as long as you're a member) think it opens today? Usually if I can't get a ticket I usually go to salford and watch it in a pub still a great atmosphere.

Just buy a VIP Package, if available. That's what I did a couple of years ago when I was in the same situation. It cost me 20k INR but was totally with it :)

08 Feb 2019 19:21:46
Japs, you paid £20,000 to watch United? Jesus, who did they play? Did we win? Did you get to sit with the players on the bench?

08 Feb 2019 20:35:49
That’s about £200 which whilst steep isn’t that bad for someone for whom it is a very special occasion.

08 Feb 2019 22:13:52
20k ruppees. For 200 sterling i'd want to be in the dressing room at full time.

Write to the club, explain what it means to you and the journey to get there, ask them if there is any way to get a ticket. The big games are unlikely but ask. You could walk around outside on match day it gives you a sense of occasion. Don’t buy a half and half scarf! Recommend you do the stadium tour but not on match day. Walk down the tunnel along pitch side if they still do that, you will remember it! Enjoy!

Perhaps if he was asking for a game that wasn't the Manchester derby!

Luckily that game is very likely to be re-arranged anyway due to the cup games so if we get through and a home draw there will be plenty of tickets available for the cup Quarter Final.

I can vouch for the VIP package Raghav.
We travelled from Australia. We booked for the 2013 last home game against Swansea. We had no idea at the time it would be a title winning celebration and Fergies last home game after announcing his retirement only a week or so before.

Lunch before the game, a bus ride to the stadium and back to the Lowery I think it was. Good seating and well looked after. Look into it.

I have two in the front row of the second tier Stretford end I'd be happy for you to have for a match, face Value of course. Not sure how I can get in touch though as I'd prefer not to post mobile number on a public forum. Any idea eds?

Hi Manctom!

Yes, please it would be great if we could connect! Could you please help out Ed 033?

Thank you!

@Deano - Unfortunately, I'm not a member, so can't participate in the ballot. I will try and find some touts, honestly don't know where to begin.

@Japps - I tried looking at the VIP packages, that starts at about 55K INR. I will try and keep that as an option. Not too sure of that.

@Red Man - Thank you, I will definitely write to the Club and ask them if anything is possible. I do hope something that can come up. I swear I won't buy the half n half scarves. I'm just really excited about just seeing the stadium, and I don't know how I will react if I end walking inside it.

@GDS - No no, I was obviously not trying to take your ticket! Wouldn't even ask for it. And yeah, there could be the FA cup thing to look into as well. Hopefully, I get to see some match at Old Trafford. I don't want to go to UK and then come back without even seeing a single United match.

@PerthRedMike- Thank you, will check out the VIP packages, just confirming, these are the ones that are there on the Club website right? The same ones?

Again, thank you guys for helping out, I think something or the other can be worked out and again, I'd be really happy to meet whoever is free on that day.

Thank you.

@Raghav - There's a few of them, some cheaper than the others. I sat very close to the stretford end so it was quite an experience!

@CantonasSeagull - I went for the Swansea game which we drew, Rooney scored a pen, and much to my disappointment Zlatan was injured and out of that game, besides the draw.

09 Feb 2019 17:42:51
I booked through the club yes, Looks the same Raghav.

That's fine ed033, thanks!

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks
