The world’s greatest league has just culminated in a fourth title win in a row for Manchester City, with Arsenal just behind them and Liverpool coming in third. Aston Villa enjoyed an outstanding season to qualify for a first Champions League campaign since the European Cup triumph of 1982.

Tottenham and Chelsea also claimed European spots. Further down the table, Crystal Palace bounced back from the threat of relegation to finish exactly midway in the table, alongside south-coast rivals Brighton and an improved Bournemouth.

Next season, we can look forward to the return of Leicester, as well as Leeds or Southampton, while Ipswich provided the fairy story of the season with two straight promotions to regain top-tier status after 22 years.

But, come 2024-25, how can I get a ticket to see any of this? With so many places taken up by season-ticket holders, and games selling out awfully fast, guaranteeing a ringside seat from a trustworthy source is always difficult.

Many now celebrate birthdays by buying a hospitality package, where your match ticket comes with a meal and perhaps an appearance from a club legend. For that once-in-a-lifetime experience, it can’t be beat – but the cost per person can run into several hundreds of pounds.

And then there’s touts and agencies of varying degrees of reliability – fine if you’re happy to risk your money but there’s no comeback if you’re refused entry at the gate.

Even when availability seems impossible, the resale market is usually everyone’s port of call, although negotiating the offers from each company can be a tricky business, with serious price differences.

By using EventsCompare, you can assess what’s out there on the marketplace for the match you’ve just got to see. That way you can weigh up the cost compared to the seat you’ll be getting, ensuring you the best deal, as well as a smooth and dependable purchase process. 

Once your tickets are in the bag, you can then go ahead and book your flight, train ticket or hotel.

The companies involved have built their reputations over years of trading, catering to millions of satisfied customers by assuring them of a slice of the action.

These are trusted sources – but do make sure you read the terms and conditions for each resale outlet to understand your purchase.
