A note from Mark Brindle the Arsenal Supporters Clubs Liaison Officer
END OF SEASON EVENT
Due to extensive work on both the Stadium and the pitch this Summer, unfortunately there will not be an opportunity to host the Supporter Clubs 5 a side tournament at Emirates Stadium.
We have investigated various options to replace this event, which was presented at the Supporters Club meeting prior to the Everton game on Sunday.
It was unanimously agreed that the Club should organise an event at Emirates Stadium which will involve a Questions and Answers session with Legends and Officials of the Club, along with food and drink, plus a Tour of the Stadium.
We will now look for a suitable date and come back to you with the details as soon as possible.
The Membership Form for 2015 – 16 has been placed on the Join page, the membership for anyone that joins now will carry through to the end of the 2015 – 16 season.
Regular questions we get are, how much are the tickets for games and what are the chances of getting a ticket.
As a Club we can obtain tickets to every Arsenal game subject to demand and availability. Our paid up members have priority of course, however we do sell tickets to nonmembers frequently.
We have members at around 95% of all Arsenal games. Members pay £1 extra over the cost of the ticket (cost being face value plus booking fees and postage costs). Nonmembers pay £10 extra over the cost of the ticket (cost being face value plus booking fees and postage costs).
Base costs vary for Home games at The Emirates as there is a Category rating system at Arsenal, i.e, it costs a lot more to watch Arsenal v Chelsea than it does to watch Arsenal v Burnley.
for 2014/15 Home tickets are
Cat A – £93 members £102 nonmembers
Cat B – £55 members £64 nonmembers
Cat C – £39 members £48 nonmembers
For away games it depends on the costs set by the opposition club but the same +£1 or +£10 rate applies if you buy tickets through ASSC. Generally most Away game tickets are £50 to £70 pounds.
If you wish to buy tickets as a nonmember we will want to be entirely satisfied that you are a trustworthy and reliable person and that you will not resell the ticket to the blackmarket. So we may ask you a few questions to assess your suitability.
All tickets must be paid for in advance. Normally 4 to 2 weeks prior to the game.
Tickets are either posted to you or in some cases handed to you before the game.
All ASSC Members
It is with real regret I have to write this post, there have been a couple of recent incidents (away games at Everton and Stoke) that have prompted this message.
It doesn’t affect 99.9% of our members – so apologies to those members.
As always it’s the few that spoil it for the majority!
We have 3 basic rules if you are going to an Arsenal match using tickets or transport organised by ASSC:
- If you have requested tickets, and they have been confirmed, you are responsible for paying for them. Only in very exceptional circumstances can you back out of the deal. That doesn’t mean you can sell them on yourself.
- If you are travelling on a coach/bus organised by ASSC there will be no drinking of alcohol on board – simple. If you drink on board – no ticket for the game!
- If you behave in a way (e.g. being too drunk) that is likely to damage the great reputation of either Arsenal FC or ASSC. This includes ejection from an Arsenal match or being refused admission to an Arsenal match.
If you break any of these rules you will not get any more tickets for games.

The superb ASSC banner has been hung at the Arsenal stadium, we have a great location – behind the goal at the North Bank end. Check the Gallery page for the first pictures.
It’s great to report that the membership of Arsenal Scotland Supporters Club has reached 400!
