To find a deal Skyscanner said: “The days immediately either side of any big sporting event will be the most expensive and will get cheaper the further out you go. Because some dates are more popular than others, prices will vary. Use Skyscanner’s ‘month view’ tool to compare to see if there’s a deal to be had by flying out a few days early or staying in your destination a bit longer if you can.

“And think outside the box! Different airports have different routes and driving a little bit further to a different airport could mean a more direct flight, or better prices. The same can be said for your destination. If you can fly to an airport a little further from the game, and travel to it via hire car or public transport, you could reduce your travel time as well as save money.”
