Yes I have! It was on my honeymoon, January's 2019. And we were so excited! It was a Chelsea x Nottingham Forest match for de FA Cup. We've bought it at the ticket office, by the stadium. And it was quite tough because of the amount of fans who were desiring the same as we're. Chelsea won! 2-0.

I haven't bought a ticket in English. I prefer to buy the ticket via online. It saves time and money. But the importing thing is you have to buy from the official website.

I used to go to stadiums to watch live matches. It's quite easier to buy tickets over the counter on match-day.Here, tickets for local matches don't sell out.To be honest, I haven't bought online tickets.

I wish I had. From time to time my London friends invite me to visit English football matches, but it's way too expensive to travel from Ukraine to the UK. I wish I would end up at the top of Fantasy Premier League leaderboard this season to get a chance to visit the UK. In fact, is there any Premier Skills English league?

2. I've never tried to buy a ticket for a football game online but in my humble opinion It's easier to buy a ticket in person.Sometimes It's hard to comprehend instructions that are given in a website to get one.

When I went to London three years ago, I had bought a ticket for Manchester United vs Manchester City in Japan, but it was so expensive that next time when I have a chance, I would definately buy it on line by myself.
