Going to London in September...

    Mrs. Sconnie and I are going to London in September, and we want to go to a Premier League game. Anyone know of an easy, cheap way to get tickets? Fullham and Tottenham have home games the week we are there, but both want 35 pounds or more per ticket...I'm hoping to spend less than 200 bucks just for tickets

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    I went to a Fulham game with a group when I was there and I think we got tickets for 20 pounds since there were more than 20 people in the group. That was a year and a half ago. 35 pounds sounds about right, not sure you'll find them for much cheaper than that.

    There are 13 clubs in the FA that play in Greater London. Five will be in the Premiership this fall: Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, Spurs, and West Ham.

    Looks like the weekend of the 13th is when you will be there, going by what you said. The two matches you mention may be your best bet. Seventy quid for two tickets = $140. Not horrible.

    If you want to see a Championship match, Charlton, Crystal Palace and QPR (Queens Park Rangers) will also all be home that weekend. A very high level of football, and all clubs that have been in the Premiership at one time (and may be back soon — well, in QPR's case, not so much :) ).

    Luckily for you and your missus, Millwall are away.

    Go to Tottenham. I met an Arsenal fan in NYC, and I want you to root for his biggest enemy. :D

    Fulham also have, at least according to one guide I've read, a neutral supporters' area, though I'd imagine the experience is somehow diminished there.
  10. I used to live in Fulham and i'd walk down to craven cottage whenver i could get tix (which was fairly often unless they were playing one of the big 4). You should suck it up--a premiership match is a unique expereince for americans and i promise you will not be disapointed with the atmosphere.

    Fulham will be the easier of the two to get tickets at, and it has the added bonuses of Craven Cottage being right on the Thames and a few Americans on the roster.

    It is a much more compact ground than White Hart Lane, and even if it's not full, should be a great atmosphere.

    You must have a pint at the Hawley Arms in Camden Town. That is all.
