Does anyone have any idea on how long it would take the club to get back to me if I applied for 2 or 3 tickets for the above match. Also, reading the info provided it looks as if each person would have to take out a membership with the club, rather than one person joining and applying for 3 tickets....can anyone confirm if that's correct.
Would also appreciate any other suggestions regarding obtaining tickets, other than the usual overpriced online ones.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
This is like Christmas coming early for the Glazers
Obviously a hard ticket and for obvious reasons but the club will/are milking this for every penny
The applications are now open and as Sigmar correctly informs there is no chance under an circumstances of you or anyone else getting a ticket,never mind 3 out of the club
Because you just want a ticket and United want and will get fortunes
The applications are open,as stated and they will leave them open as long as sensibly possible even though there is no chance
Because everybody that calls in who is not a member is an opportunity to draw in £32 membership for a lost cause.
They just won't tell you it's a lost cause
It is one ticket per member so if you apply and none of you are members then that's £100 to the bad guys
Imagine if they hook in 10,000 such people then that's £320,000 for sod all
These are your only choices.
I suspect none will appeal to you
They won't appeal to any
Thomas Cook amazingly appear to have been lucky in the ballot
If you google Thomas Cook Manchester United v Barcelona you can guarantee yourself a ticket and you don't need to be a member.Funny that
You get 2 people for one night in the shit hole Travelodge on Salford Quays currently selling for £33 a night
You also get 2 guaranteed "official" tickets for the game ie they come from United with United's blessing.Face value of these two tickets will be c£50 each ie £100
So how much will this face value £133 package cost.Well only £602
As Sigmar says if you can afford to look after yourself prepare to be screwed
I call it legalised touting
Amazingly the club have some VIP packages left as well
You can take a 5 seater box for £7200 so £1400 a ticket
or an 8 seater box for £30,000 so about £3800 a ticket
International fine dining is obviously included for the above give away prices
I have not researched but i feel sure Thomas Cook Chinese ipad branch members have been lucky in the ballot as well
I assume the plane ticket of about £1500 each will be added to the Travelodge cost so two people from China can expect to pay about £4500 for a couple of days in Manchester
You will get a free museum tour which ends in the megastore but you will have to buy your own 50/50 scarf
Ah well the wonderful world of Manchester United
