Tickets

ArsenalAmerica.com will be giving access to tickets in the supporters section to its members who are signed up for a 2019/2020 membership.

The fee is $25 to become a member, and you will be able to purchase tickets through them for any ICC match or the match against the Rapids. This is the only way to obtain tickets in the Arsenal supporters section as we understand it.

Our friends in Centennial 38 have a block of tickets in section 117 which they are selling at link: C38 Offer

Note that this is traditionally the C38 supporters section, but they have extended an invitation to any Arsenal supporters for the evening.

FAQ

We recommend you try to find a place to stay close to downtown. While you might be tempted to book somewhere close to the Rapids Stadium, know that the stadium is 30 minutes outside the city and has very little surrounding the stadium.

There is an Arsenal America hotel block at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, which you can see here: Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel

We are hoping you’ll join us for our official events, but if you want to do your own thing, you can always head to the Celtic on Market to hang with Arsenal fans. The Celtic on Market will be home base for the weekend and there will be Arsenal supporters in and out of the pub constantly throughout the events.

No matter where you stay in Denver, Lyft and Uber are readily available. There is also a light rail network in certain areas that will take you downtown to Union Station, which is conveniently located to our home base, the Celtic on Market, among other popular destinations.

Here is a link to the light rail map: RTD Light Rail System Map

Note that there will be bus transportation for two of our official events. Reservations must be made in advance at: Denver Gooners Bus Reservations

A few of our official events are happening outside of the city proper, and as such, we have arranged transportation to and from these events. There is a small fee to reserve a space on the bus, and you can do so at the below links:

  • A Day at the Races; Departs Celtic on Market 14 July at 12:00pm: Reserve Ticket
  • Bus to Arsenal Match; Departs Celtic on Market 15 July at 5:30pm: Reserve Ticket
  • Red Rocks Hike; Carpools will be arranged in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, we understand the team will only be in Denver a few hours, arriving right before the match and leaving directly after. As such, there have been no official events organised by the club.

Recreational marijuana is available in Denver, however, please be aware that it is still illegal to smoke in public. If you are not comfortable with the laws surrounding purchasing and using recreational marijuana, please read the following article to prepare: Marijuana laws in Colorado

WARNING

Denver is a mile above sea level

Please be aware of the effects high altitude has on your body, particularly while drinking alcohol or exercising.

  • Drink plenty of water. You need an additional 1 – 2 liters of water at high altitude.
  • Wear sunscreen. The atmosphere is thinner and sunburns happen more quickly at altitude.
  • Drinking effects you differently at altitude. Particularly, it’s known to take less drinks to feel drunk and it’s easier to get dehydrated while drinking, so drink more water and less booze when drinking a mile high.
  • Learn the symptoms of altitude sickness. Seek help immediately if you start feeling any of the symptoms at link: Altitude Sickness Symptoms
