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
Marriott is taking bids for Manchester United games via the Marriott Bonvoy Moments site. Arsenal VIP seats are also available as we covered here.
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.
We first covered these back in July and September and they were hugely popular with readers, so I thought I’d fill a quiet Saturday by mentioning some more.
Games for November have just been added.
Prices start from £36 and go up from there. What you get varies by what you pay but it’s difficult to argue that these tickets don’t offer great value. As it happens, the £36 Tottenham tickets below do include “a grazing menu buffet served pre-match in the stadium lounge, and a complimentary half-time drink”.
