Ticket information: Arsenal v Nottingham Forest

Arsenal v Nottingham Forest

Ticketing information for our Premier League fixture against Nottingham Forest, which will take place at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday August 12, at 12.30pm.

This will be a Category C fixture (pricing and information on match categorisation).

New ballot system for Arsenal Members

To ensure fairness and equal opportunity, tickets for home Premier League fixtures will be sold via a ballot system exclusively for Arsenal members. For each match, members have a designated window in which to register either individually or as a group (provided that all members in the group meet the necessary requirements for the relevant ballot).

Timing doesn't matter when it comes to entering our ballots, whether you're an early bird or a last-minute entrant, your chances of winning remain exactly the same. The only crucial factor is that you submit your entry while the window is open.

Family Enclosure ballot

PLEASE NOTE: the Family Enclosure will be a mixed area for this match.

The Family Enclosure is a designated area for Junior Gunners and Senior Citizen members. To successfully purchase in the family enclosure ballot, Silver & Cannon Silver members must be accompanied by a Junior Gunner member with a maximum ratio of two adults to one junior. Senior Citizen members are the only members who can purchase on their own. 

Please note: Junior Gunners aged 13 and under must register with an adult member aged 18 and over. Any ballot applications that do not meet these criteria will not be able to purchase.

Once the ballot process is complete, all applicants will be emailed regardless of the outcome. Successful applicants will have a 24-hour window to purchase tickets specifically for the family enclosure. It is important to complete the purchase within this timeframe to secure your tickets in the family area.

Red and Cannon Red Members who attend with a Junior Gunner will also be able to register for tickets in the Family Enclosure during this period (one Red/Cannon Red Member per JG). Red Senior Members may also apply. This service is not available through the regular Family Enclosure Ballot, but via a separate link found below. Please note, Cannon Red Members must be aged 18 or over to accompany a JG who is under 14.

Silver and Red ballot

To participate in the ballot for both Silver and Red tickets, we require you to authorise a payment card. If your application is successful the payment card you provided will be automatically charged and tickets will be assigned to you. The ballot page when open will display a range of available prices for your reference. Please keep in mind that successful applicants may be assigned seats from any available areas and prices.

Once the ballot process is complete, both unsuccessful and successful applicants will be emailed. It is important to note that booking fees will be applied to this service. In cases where the number of ballot registrations for a match does not exceed the number of available tickets, all members who entered the ballot will be successful in obtaining tickets.

Silver Ballot price range £28.50 - £41.50
Red Ballot price range £28.50-£41.50


  • If your payment card declines, your ballot application will be unsuccessful.
  • New Red Members will be eligible to enter relevant ballots approximately 48 hours after purchasing a Membership.
