Emirates has released the final batch of Arsenal football tickets for 2022/23 for Emirates Skywards members who have miles to redeem.  You can also use American Express Membership Rewards points via a transfer.

Unfortunately, with Arsenal riding high at the moment, Emirates has pushed up seat pricing again. Hospitality box seats which were as low as 35,000 miles per ticket earlier in the season will now cost you 60,000 miles.

Use Emirates Skywards miles for Arsenal football tickets

VIP seating is now a flat 60,000 Skywards miles

Tickets are now bookable for the final home games of the season.

The pricing is quoted is for standard seats – which are reportedly very good ones – and then VIP hospitality, per person.

  • Crystal Palace on 18th March (20,000 miles / 60,000 miles)
  • Leeds United on 1st April (20,000 miles / 60,000 miles)
  • Southampton on 22nd April (25,000 miles / 60,000 miles)
  • Chelsea on 29th April (35,000 miles / no VIP option)
  • Brighton on 13th May (20,000 miles / 60,000 miles)
  • Wolverhampton on 28th May (25,000 miles / 60,000 miles)

Wolves is the last game of the season, and if Arsenal does end up winning the Premier League – and if it goes down to the last day – then this will be a great place to be. Note that the Emirates website appears to be wrong as all other sources show the Wolves game as being on 28th May and not 18th May.

Assuming that you are still in The Emirates Box, it is VERY good.  It is the best located box in the stadium and you get good quality hot food before, during and after the game.  Here is a review of a past trip although I have been 7-8 times since.

The Emirates website is now saying “(Beverages are not included, but can be bought seperately)”. This is not true, as readers who have been recently have confirmed.

How to book

Full details and booking is available on this page of the Emirates website.

You cannot get a refund if the time or date of the game is changed for TV purposes and you can no longer attend. According to the Arsenal website the TV scheduling is only fixed until the end of February, so any of the games above could yet be moved to a new slot between Friday evening and Monday evening. If Arsenal continue to challenge for the title you can expect their games to be picked up by broadcasters.

Tickets cannot be transferred.  However, tickets are now sent electronically and do not need to be collected in person from the Arsenal offices on the day, so I don’t know if this is enforced.

Transfers from American Express Membership Rewards to Emirates Skywards are instantaneous if the accounts are already linked and should be pretty quick even if they are not. The conversion rate is 1:1.

PS. If you’re not an Arsenal fan, remember that Travelzoo has launched a part of its website where Premier League clubs can dump their unsold hospitality packages. These can be good value although the selection is thin at the moment.


How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (January 2023)

Emirates Skywards does not have a UK credit card.  However, you can earn Emirates Skywards miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.

    On the subject of Emirates, how do I go about getting as many points back as possible for a family economy booking UK to Dubai we have coming up. We’re unlikely to be flying Emirates in the near future after this. Having points in the kids names offers little value. Is there a way I can pool the points (and move them out)? I’ve also seen the flight are Qantas codeshare, i’ve read somewhere that I can get avios on these flights? is there a way to convert the entire families points then into nectar if so?

    • Rob says:

      Look at wheretocredit.com for your options, remembering that discounted economy class tickets often earn nothing or little with partners.

      Flying Blue and Qantas are both options. Emirates allows family pooling, as does Qantas IIRC.

    You can redeem Skywards points against easyjet flight as well. https://www.easyjet.com/en/help/booking/emirates-skywards

  • babyg says:

    considering i used just over 100k emirates points for 2 x F1 3day paddock passes (value £15k?) this doesn’t seem like very good value..

    • Alex W says:

      Agreed. Even the non-hospitality seats are expensive at 25k points. However, on the basis that it will sell out before going on general sale I’ve booked Arsenal v Wolves with 23k Amex MRs plus the 2k you get free for signing up to Emirates (use invite code FLYDUBAI).
      Granted, it’s still a big IF, but if Arsenal win the league I’m now guaranteed a seat to watch them lift the trophy. Can’t put a price on that.

      • babyg says:

        Hmmm true… i do have almost enough for some “seats only” and emirates no longer sponsor f1, so maybe I should gamble 25k emirates points just in case… it would be an epic occasion…

      • YFP says:

        my thoughts exactly, but see how it goes. I let my red membership lapse, so no other way to get tickets at this rate! Will be gold dust if arsenal pull it off

      • Chrisasaurus says:

        Well, I’d argue you just did 😁

    • Jon says:

      Value £15k? Questionable. If you were willing to pay £15k for that then fair enough. But the rest of us likely wouldn’t pay more than £150.

      • No longer Entitled says:

        5k for a three day paddock ticket with full hospitality sounds about right. Great value redemption.

    • david says:

      Hope you have a good one but I despise F1, turning your head (left to right or vice versa) every so often to see a car doing its intended speed.

  • Rand says:

    Are these redemptions more expensive now because Arsenal is playing well – or because Emirates has significantly devalued its program, with flights being much more expensive than they were 12 months ago? I’d vote for the latter.

    • Charlie says:

      The tickets are priced the same as the AC Milan options, and a little more than Benfica.

    • Fazzy Bear says:

      At the start of the season they sold out the first batch in next to no time. Nabbed two tickets for the north London derby at 12.5k points each.

      Guessing they were significantly undervalued and they decided to increase the rate to slow down how quickly they got redeemed.

  • LST says:

    As an Arsenal fan I fully expect us to blow this season!

  • Neil says:

    Is there any age restriction on the VIP seats? I’d like to take my 10 year old son.

  • Richard says:

    Is the points price for 2 tickets or just 1? It says a max of 2 can be purchased, does that mean 120k points for 2 VIP tickets?

  • Sb says:

    Red member here struggling to get tickets for any games and only have 7k of skywards points, gutted. 🙁
