This is slightly off topic for us, except that I know many HfP readers like to redeem their miles and points for VIP Premier League hospitality.
The two obvious routes for this are (click for our articles):
- the Emirates VIP box at Arsenal, available on Emirates Skywards miles (and so via American Express Membership Rewards transfers), and
- the Manchester United VIP box at Old Trafford, available on Marriott Bonvoy points
Neither of these has opened up booking for the 2021/2 season yet.
Unsurprisingly, the corporate hospitality market has fallen off a cliff. This means that, as we saw at Wimbledon, there are grounds with plenty of VIP seats available and no customers.
Travelzoo has launched a new part of its website where Premier League clubs can dump their unsold hospitality packages. These are exceptionally cheap.
There were seats available yesterday from as little as £70 – with hospitality! – but those sold out quickly. Packages currently available as of late last night included:
- Tottenham vs Watford (29th August) – £130
- Chelsea vs Aston Villa (11th September) – £162
- Manchester United vs Newcastle (11th September) – £162
- Crystal Palace vs Spurs (11th September) – £227
- Arsenal vs Norwich (11th September) – £149
- Newcastle vs Leeds (17th September) – £162
- Tottenham vs Chelsea (19th September) – £195
- Manchester United vs Aston Villa (25th September) – £162
- Chelsea vs Manchester City (25th September) – £227
- Arsenal vs Tottenham (26th September) – £357
- Crystal Palace vs Brighton (27th September) – £195
