    This £102 ticketing nonsense seems fishy. The club were charging Barcelona away fans £102 to subsidise our travelling support who are now paying £75. However Barcelona are bringing half the allocation we have. These “premium seats” must be making up the difference?

    Just got off the phone with ticket office, they said Premium tickets were sold-out 5 minutes after the email for the second ballot was sent out.
    I know it's a very long shot, but if anyone has a pair - it would be a perfect birthday present for my son.

    Got a letter today about the renewal, you may have too, and it says they won't be accommodating any seat changes other than those who have to be moved due to the new disabled section expansion.

    Effectively, it’s a disgrace from the club.

    Reds who are paying this price are subsidising the away tickets. So the song and dance they made about sorting out away ticket price, which was admirable, was complete nonsense as they’ve copped united fans at home with the price difference.

    I’m not biased either as I’ve got an away ticket so technically benefiting but this doesn’t sit right with me at all. It really is pathetic that a club the size of United are willing to do this for really when you look at it minimal financial gain.

    I understand now what the ticket office tried to do to me last week. I have season tickets in the South Stand and am usually moved for big Champions League matches to accommodate UEFA suits. A week ago I received an email to say that I had been moved to Block NW3433 which are the posh seats in the NW quadrant - so I was happy with that. I then got a text on Saturday evening saying that they were delighted to have now found seats for me in Tier 1 in Block 1401 which is right in corner low down - i.e. delighted to have found me worse seats! Anyway, I phoned the TO on Sunday and got myself moved right back to NW3433.

    I now understand that what they were trying to do was free up a couple of seats in NW3433 so that they could sell them at a premium rather than have me occupy them with me only paying the same price as I would have done if in my normal seats!

    FFS, if I'd known about the "premium" tickets, I would've snapped them up. Ridiculous price but still a lot lower than touts.

    I see Zebra finance is not going to be an option this season to spread the payment of a season ticket over 10 months. Anybody know if there’s going to be an alternative?

    Saw that myself, interesting to see what they do.

    Also, anyone know why you cant put down deposit options anymore for new applications for ST's?

    Never a need to pay a tout. If you just need a single then persist with ringing the ticket office throughout the day until you get a ticket. There were 47 quid singles today.

    Bet you they won’t get it sorted before the renewal date. I’m waiting it out before deciding whether to pay in full or not if that’s the only option. Pisses me off how they slyed that in on announcing Ole email.

    I'd not seen the email but just dug it up. It mentioned trying to get an alternative in place but this seems unlikely. I guess it depends on how big of a problem it is for them shifting season tickets - if a large number of people are going to have to give up their ticket maybe United will do a loan scheme for a year while they get something else in place?

    Apparently it effects a lot of clubs who used Zebra, not just United so surely something must be done. Personally, I am thinking of putting it on a 0% credit card if they don't get it sorted in time.

    I want to do the same however, I have already purchased 1 'premium seat' on my membership, does that mean I can't buy another for my friend on the same membership?

    I guess it's pretty cheap to add a membership as part of the ticket at this stage in the season anyway.

    I know there's a very small chance of this happening, but I'd love an Everton spare if anyone has one.

    Ah cheers, thought as much!

    Will give the ticket office a call this morning, but I'm not holding my breath.

    So if anyone has 1 ticket spare for United vs Barca at OT on the 10th, please let me know!

    Know a member who's just got Barcelona Tickets.

    The Club emailed him saying Barcelona haven't filled allocation if they'd have known prior he'd have been successful in ballot so offered him up until 2pm today to ring up and buy.

    Anyone not sorted it might be worth logging into online portal and refreshing from 2pm for people who've not seen email.

    Anyone who was unsuccessful in both ballots, check your emails! They’ve released more tickets as away fans didn’t use whole allocation. Only to members who were unsuccessfull. I managed to get 3!

    Yeah I've just sorted 2 tickets in E233 for the standard ticket price. Bit of a pisstake on those who rushed to buy the £102 premium seats earlier in the week.

    If anyone can't make Barca at home on the 10th, please let me know, I can simply buy it from you and/or swap for Chelsea at home on the 28th.

    Hey guys,

    I am a 23 year old from India and a huge United fan. So i got an opportunity from my company to travel to the UK for a couple of months. (first time coming to the UK! )

    Now I would most probably be there by May (VISA process and other stuff might take longer than expected, so setting a realistic timeline). Sadly for me, only 2 matches would be left by then, Huddersfield away and Cardiff at home.

    Now 4th May (Huddersfield) is cutting it a bit too close, hence I would prefer the Cardiff home game. Now I looked at the official United website and it says tickets are sold out, and also that only members can book the tickets. So I wanted to know is there any other way to get a ticket, be great if you guys could help me out with this.

    Watching United play at Old Trafford has been a huge dream of mine since a long time, and now I have a realistic opportunity, so I would like to take full advantage of it :)

    Please feel free to reply on the thread or PM me.

    If no one helps you here, honestly the best bet would to be ringing the ticket office a few times next week. They often have tickets not visible on the website. Especially one. Cardiff was on sale in the last few days online but snapped up quickly. A lite membership when buying a ticket will cost an extra ten pounds.
