Arsenal Slash Ticket Prices For Cup Match

Arsenal Slash Ticket Prices For Cup Match

As customary (when we're not playing Spurs) Arsenal have lowered their ticket prices for the Carling Cup.

The Gunners face Sheffield United at The Grove on the 23rd of this month, at the board have seen fit to slash their ticket prices by around 66% if tickets are bought early.

Taken from the official website:

All upper tier tickets £20 Adults and £10 Concessions - If purchased early
All lower tier tickets £10 Adults and £5 Concessions - If purchased early

So if you can't get to The Grove all that often, now is the time to grab those all elusive tickets.

Oh dear, the novelty of the shiny new stadium is wearing off I see...

No Woody, we've done it every year for a while now. You see, we don't take the CC overly serious and play lots of kids, we like to treat the fans fairly (most of the time) the fact that we can fill a 60,000 seater for a CC match, unlike you guys who could even sell out the semi final!
01/09/2008 16:16:00
Which semi final was that Rocky?? You mean you have done it every year since you parked your caravan 10 yards down the road...You like to treat fans fairly?? You on the board then mate or just a major player when it comes to setting prices for tickets??
01/09/2008 16:21:00
The semi final in which we beat you .... there were many empty seats. We have been cutting ticket prices for the CC since well before we moved to the Grove, so your theory about novelty wearing off is down the swany. And saying "we" is the right of every football fan in the world, and if you say you've never used it then your a liar .... all this renders your argumentts flimsier than the Tottenham defence!!

Yep, for the Rotherham game and the Wolves game in 2003 and 2004 respectively in this competition we charged these prices. Newcastle at home last year saw the same prices and a 60,000 sell out. Only when the despicable greed of the Spuds board is involved are we forced to charge higher prices, then again I guess it shows a) the gulf in class between the two clubs and b) the enormous schism in priorities. Mind the gap.

The 'right' of every football fan?!? Why do people come out with these PC statements about football all the time ffs?? Well you should treat it seriously as its one of only two comps that you have a serious chance of winning. The way you term we is not in the same context as saying 'we are yids' and you know it. You were trying to give it big spuds as if you are a major player down the degenerates..
01/09/2008 16:36:00
It is difficult for these boys to comprehend though that the CC is both a chance for our reserve players and reserve supporters to get a chance at the limelight.
01/09/2008 16:37:00
Well you lot are saving on silver polish I guess Little Dutch..
01/09/2008 16:38:00
Woddywoo, bearing in mind that you haven't won the league since 1961 or the F.A Cup since 1991 wouldn't it be more prudent to summise that the CC is YOUR only chance of ever winning a trophy?
01/09/2008 16:41:00
CC and UEFA are goos shouts for us, realistically the CC is our best chance of silverware. Over to you, REALISTICALLY what do you think you are going to win?? Its gonna hurt for you to tap it out I know, but please go ahead. I find it amusing... But I stick by my original statement.
