The Long Road From Miami To Old Trafford

manunitedusa The Long Road From Miami To Old TraffordIn the past few years, the Man United against Chelsea tie has taken on more importance in the Premiership calendar. Later this month, Jose Mourinho will take his side to Old Trafford knowing that the match could determine who is the best side in England.It”just so happens” that the match is scheduled for Sunday, November 26 (11am ET, live on Fox Soccer Channel). I’ll be in England from November 18-26 reporting on matches for EPL Talk visitors worldwide, bringing them the excitement and passion of the world’s most popular sports league via daily podcasts, streaming photos and sharing my experiences via this blog on a daily basis.Getting tickets to the match is another story. The match has been sold out for weeks, and tickets are available to OneUnited members in a lottery. I’m not a OneUnited member and even if I was, chances of winning a ticket in the lottery are especially difficult. A membership in OneUnited is 27 GBP, and the last time I checked it was 34 GBP for fans in the US (equivalent of $64).I did try to purchase a ticket through their Museum Tour package, which for 90 GBP gives you the luxury of a pre-match and post-match reception as well as a ticket to the North west Quadrant section of the stadium. When I phoned the United ticket line, I was impressed by the whole experience. While on hold, the audio included football commentary from some of the highpoints in Man United’s history. The audio was definitely more interesting than the typical muzak people are accustomed to.Unfortunately the ticket person informed me that the museum tour packages (which included a ticket) were sold out.I contacted the Manchester United Supporters Club of America for assistance. Just like, the organization is run by supporters who are top class and extremely professional. David Herman at is trying to see if he can obtain a ticket for me, and it’s a perfect example of why football fans should join their local supporters club.

One Response to The Long Road From Miami To Old Trafford

  1. I'm so disappointed to find that these were all sold out. I was really counting on going. At least I'll have your coverage to make me feel as though i was there.
