SUPPORTERS wishing to apply for tickets for United's trip to Celtic on November 5 have until 8pm today to do so.
Tickets are priced at £40 and, for restricted view tickets, £37. There is no mention on United's website of concession tickets being made available.
Executive members, season ticket holders and One United members who got tickets for and went to previous Champions League away games at:
Rome in the group stage
Rome in the quarter final
and also applied for
will be given priority.
Applicants should call 0161 868 8000 after October 15 to see if they have been successful. As well as the ticket price, they must also pay £4.45 to have their tickets sent to them by special delivery.
Quite why collection at the ground or £1 recorded delivery won't do is beyond me, but don't be surprised if that becomes a regular feature, financial markets being as they are.
United expects to be heavily oversubscribed for this game, though about 400 people have already secured their tickets by buying their coach places up to Glasgow on MU Travel.
All coach places are sold out, but you can still go on MU Travel by train or plane and get a ticket automatically.
The normal flight trip costs £199, the 'executive' flight costs £322 (apparently, the only difference is you get fussed over a bit more and you get a three-course meal along the way).
Or you can on an overnight trip by train first class from Preston to Glasgow, which includes one night at the Adobe Hotel. The price is yet to be confirmed.
The price of a match ticket and travel insurance is not included in the price you pay to MU Travel.
Meanwhile, those who applied for tickets for the Everton away game in two weeks' time can find out if they have got them tomorrow through the usual channels.
