It’s being reported this evening that tickets for Thursday’s Premier League clash with West Brom have been put on general sale by the club.
It’s the first time we can recall this happening for a league game since the move to Emirates. It’s a reflection of the disenchantment felt by fans at the moment, and exacerbated by the late points dropped to Crystal Palace in the 1-1 draw on Sunday and the unusual Thursday evening kick off.
Many season tickets were put on sale through the club’s Ticket Exchange system, while some are available to the public – although this may be only by going to the box office directly as it doesn’t appear to be possible via arsenal.com.
The Ticket Exchange shows availability in almost every block in the stadium and it’s feared this could be the lowest ever Premier League attendance since the move from Highbury in 2006.
It does provide an opportunity for those who don’t usually get a chance to attend matches to see the team in action, in a game which does still have some consequence.
The title challenge is well and truly over, but a top four finish is important from a footballing point of view as we look towards the 2016/17 campaign.
Spare tickets are also offered through the @arsenal_tickets Twitter account, always at face value too.
