But Gooners face a mad scramble to try and get their hands on one.
The club announced that tickets for the match will be sold on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
A club statement read: “It’s been almost nine long months since we had fans in attendance at Emirates Stadium and our matches have simply not been the same without you.
“While we appreciate that reduced capacity matches will be far from being ‘back to normal’, we can’t wait to welcome our fans back home for what will be a historic moment for the club.
“This follows the UK Government announcement that Emirates Stadium is located in a Tier 2 area under the latest Covid-19 guidelines.”
It continued: “We will not be running a ticketing ballot for the match against Rapid Vienna.
“For this match only, we will be running a ‘first come, first served’ priority sale to Gold and Premium Members who made their Initial Payment and registered for the ballot in September.
“This priority sale will open at 9am GMT on Saturday, November 28.
“Only certain areas of the stadium will be open while we operate at such a significantly reduced capacity.
“Tickets will be capped at four per booking and you must have a membership number for each ticket you purchase.”
Arsenal are selling tickets at £15 for the lower level and £45 at club level.
