Arsenal have advised that as we are on the Supporters Club Plus list for this Season we have been allocated a VIP day.
This will be for the Arsenal v Man United fixture scheduled for 6th May 2017.
(It could be an early kickoff 6th May or be moved to Sunday 7th May 2017 although there is also a possibility of postponement if United are in the Europa Cup Final).
The SC Plus VIP package is
A Matchday VIP experience for a maximum of 30 people on Arsenal v Manchester United home match 6th May (subject to rearrangement), which will include:
o Watching the teams arrive off the coach at Emirates Stadium.
o A post-match photo pitchside with a player(s)* – (*subject to player availability on the day). Not sure if the pitchside photo is for each of the 30 or a 30 person group photo, probably the latter I imagine.
o 15% off Armoury Store purchases on that matchday.
It will be strictly for Members only.
Members can add their names to a list as is normal for Home games by text request to the Chairman Mike Buchanan 07801 448662 giving your name and ASSC membership number. The deadline for ticket requests will be 6pm on Friday 24th February 2017.
A witnessed draw will take place shortly afterwards and the 30 names drawn will be asked to pay for the tickets by Friday 24th March. Anyone of the 30 not paid by 24th March will be dropped off the list and the next drawn name takes their place.
Being a Category A game the estimated cost of tickets will be around £85 to £91 depending on where Arsenal seat us. Tickets will be handed out on the day when the group all gather for the Players Coach arriving.
Please note this is not a trip including travel or accommodation. Members arrange that themselves. Due to the possible changes to the date and ko times it would be recommended that members book to stay in London from early Saturday to late Sunday 6th/7th May. But members should not book anything unless they are allocated match tickets.
It is possible that we may source a very small number of additional tickets but those would NOT be part of the VIP 30 package but would be drawn in the same manner.
