The good news for you is that if Arsenal are at home it would definitely be Saturday not Sunday.  The Police will not allow Arsenal to play at home the same day as an event of this size at Wembley, especially as London police will be extra stretched that day with a Rugby WC semi final at Twickenham in south London. 

 

I hope we are at home for you.  Fixtures are usually out first / second week in June. 

I'm hoping for a Liverpool vs. Arsenal/Chelsea/Tottenham/Crystal Palace/West Ham Saturday game.  Not thinking QPR will be up still. Knocking off a Bills game and Liverpool game in the same weekend would be fantastic!!!

Same would apply to Chelsea, Spurs, QPR..... and whilst I don't think that West Ham or Palace would cause the same scale of problems given the georgraphical distance from Wembley and Twickenham I would still think it unlikely that they would allow home games for those teams on the Sunday.

Dang. I was hoping tickets wouldn't go on sale until more travel options were available. A lot of airlines won't sell tickets this far in advance so there's no opportunity to shop around, and I'm not paying a premium for an agent to book a trip.

Thank you for the insight. I hope you are correct. It would be a great weekend.

I would love it if Tottenham was at White Hart Lane the Saturday before or after! My trip would be organized around that with being able to cheer on the Bills as an added bonus... If, of course, my wife and I are making the journey.

Being an Arsenal supporter, I am going to have to resist making any comments.

All US based airlines sell their tickets 331 days in advance, so they are on sale to London now. Inventory is available in more discounted buckets now then if/when it fills up later....

 

London (LHR and LGW) is always a popular destination, but you may want to search to fly into cities like Manchester where you could then take the train down (3-4 hrs)

I bought on the UK website even though I am here in the US. I had to register for an account.

It should (I think) work for Europe because it contemplated options for delivery in the US as well as Europe (if I recall correctly).

In case you did not know, one of the U.K. Bills fans is organizing an event in London on Saturday night before the game. I have to find the link again.

I am going to figure out my schedule once I find out Arsenal's fixture schedule next season.

Funny.

I am huge Arsenal supporter (since Dennis Bergkamp) and even a Red Member, but I always have heard about the great atmosphere and supporters at West Ham.

Non-premium seats running $58-$179, way, way cheaper than the Bills in Toronto.
