Advice for Boxing Day Soccer Match in London

I volunteer with a U.S. charity that sends young soccer fans who've battled critical illness to see their dream soccer match. We are excited to be sending a young man to Arsenal's Boxing Day match and are in the process of booking airfare and hotel.

Any advice on booking? Is it worth it to look at packages offered by individual airlines? (We'll stay for 3 nights.)

Any others with Boxing Day/holiday experience with advice to share?

Thank you in advance!

As well as being no public transport at all on Christmas Day, there are usually buses and Underground but no trains on Boxing Day, so make sure he stays somewhere that isn't so far out of London it's only served by trains.

Also be very cautious about making sure that the ticket is purchased through an official source, there are a huge number of online scams out there for Premier League games.
