Marriott Bonvoy has made 10 football hospitality packages available for points on its ‘Moments’ experiences page. The tickets are for the International Champions Cup game between Manchester United v AC Milan in Cardiff on 3rd August.
The package includes two tickets, “food and beverages” before the game and “great seats for the match” – which are not totally helpful descriptions of what, exactly, is included.
Assuming that you can pick up a package for the minimum bid, you are paying £150 (based on our valuation of a Bonvoy point at 0.5p). With adult tickets running from £28 to £68, this is a decent deal if they are top price seats given the hospitality included.
