We're pleased to outline plans for the return of up to 10,000 fans to Emirates Stadium for Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, May 23.
While we may not be back to full capacity yet, everyone at the club is excited about the possibility of welcoming some supporters home for our last game of the 2020/21 season.
Please note, this is dependent on the easing of lockdown restrictions set out in the UK Government’s roadmap.
Should we receive confirmation that fans will be able to return for this match, members who registered for the ballot earlier this season (Ballot Registered Members) will automatically be included in the ballot to purchase tickets for this fixture.
We will let supporters know by email if they have been successful in the ballot and if so, the cost of their ticket(s) will be charged to their registered payment card no earlier than Wednesday, May 12.
Supporters who previously registered as a group will again be balloted in this group and seats will be allocated together.
If an eligible member’s situation has changed since the previous ballot in December, supporters can amend the details for their group by contacting Fan Services on +44 (0)20 7619 5000. The deadline to update this information is midday (UK) on Friday, May 7.
Please remember, it's each individual supporters’ responsibility to ensure they comply with the latest UK Government guidelines.
There will also be an allocation of General Admission tickets for members who are not season ticket holders. Members who are eligible will be contacted by email regarding the process the join the ballot.

SEATING ALLOCATION AND PRICING
Due to the reduced capacity at this match, only certain areas of the stadium will be open. If successful in the ballot, General Admission supporters will be allocated seats on either the Upper or Lower tier depending on their usual season ticket location. Similarly, Premium members will be balloted in their usual tier, but no supporters will be guaranteed their regular seat.
