    Are they available on a match by match basis? What is the price?

    Yes I've looked on the website but got bored after 10 mins of hunting around without an answer.

    Also, are away fans allowed in the Exec boxes?

    I'm not 100% sure but I think you can buy tickets for the Legends Suite - you might be talking £50 depending on the game. I've only ever been with a company who has a box or on one of those specials they sometimes do a few times a season.

    You can get one off tickets or upgrade a season ticket for any given match subject to availability. My dad did it regularly particularly in the cold months. There is / was a guy at rhe club that sorts the tickets but I can't remember his name. If you call the box office I'm sure they will help.

    I think the upgrade price from a season ticket was around £25 last season but you did get car parking and a programme included.

    I think away fans are sometimes in there if they have a box reserved but there's never been any problems that I'm aware of.

    Hope you get sorted

    Hi. I sit in Legends Suite with my old man. Ask for Lee in commercial and he will sort you out. Price between 50-70 quid. Yes sometimes there are a few away fans inside the lounge

    I'm curious about that - I presume you are behind glass all the time. Do you pick up on any atmosphere (crowd noise) and can everybody see?

    I imagine everyone crowding around the window trying to see out - is that how it is?

    I got invited for my birthday last November but didn't take it up. Just curious what the whole "experience" is like, that's all.

    You have a choice - you can either stay behind the glass in the warm or you can go out into the block of seats right in the centre of the upper tier that are usually mostly empty. They are great seats and you get the atmosphere and everything. The occasional visit I have made to the Exec boxes I've never stayed inside and watched through the glass but the atmosphere cant be the same.

    One big plus is immediately after the match when you get an overview of the game - it used to be by Barry Murphy and he was great - dont know if it still is, and also the MotM has to make an appearence and be interviewed

    But what if you do stay inside - is it like I suggested with people standing at the window trying to see past others?

    They have seats in the boxes like your seats in the stands

    Did it at Tannadice and everyone was seated, the boxes there are pretty low level, but it was a bit like watching the telly with the sound turned off.

    It’s a decent view in the legends height wise, but yes you are behind glass if you decide to stay in the suite to watch.
    The legends has about 6 boxes (guess)which seat around 20 people in 2 rows.
    Each area has a speaker in it which can be regulated by a volume button to ‘add’ atmosphere from outside.
    There’s obviously microphones somewhere picking up the sounds & they can be quite funny sometimes when there’s certain people sat near the mic’s & you get their ‘opinions ‘ throughout the game!!
    But if you like to watch football behind glass great, but seats on half way line in east stand upper are imo better.
    Only benefits of inside is its warm, but there’s a coffee or a beer at half time so that’s a plus either way!!!

    Went in one last season for the Villa game and didn't like it. Food and beer (tab paid for by host) was excellent.

    What I found poor, was the outside noise is piped in through a single speaker, to your left, in the ceiling. So you had game noise coming from your left when the game play went to your right. Was like listening to the match on a radio whilst watching it on a TV through your neighbors front window.

    Away fans are allowed in (dress code). Our hosts were from Birmingham. Only one was an armchair Villa fan. Others were West Brom or Birmingham fans. To be honest, non of them were interested in watching the game and spent 90% of the time the food / drink side of the curtain.

    Club 64 is good. Cheaper and you sit outside on padded seats. You can sit inside if it's cold and watch on tv screens but you get the full atmosphere. The choice of food and at the bar isn't as wide as in the executive areas but it's hot food and draught bitter and lager.

    None of the above tempts me so I am glad I turned down the invitation in November.
    I go to Oakwell to watch a football match and if it's a bit cold or wet well never mind. It goes with the territory.
    I don't go to eat multi-course meals and a beer at my elbow whenever I want it.
    Each to their own but it's all about the match for me. Anything else is irrelevant.
