Q. When will I receive my event tickets?
A. This will depend on the delivery options available for your chosen event. Normally, event tickets are only issued by the event organisers a few days prior to each event. Please read the delivery description for your chosen event.
Q. Where will my seat be located?
A. For the majority of teams, we offer a range of seating categories. Detailed information regarding ticket categories can be found via 'ticket descriptions' and/ or our 'stadium plans' (where applicable).
Q. Will we be sat next to each other inside the stadium?
A. Event organisers generally issue tickets together in 'pairs' unless we state otherwise via the ticket category/ description. Definition of pairs: 1. two seats positioned together side by side. Event organisers will always try to prioritise pairs as above however some event organisers may issue pairs as: 2. a seat directly in front of the other seat. 3. two seats together in a diagonal pair. 4. two seats together in a diagonal pair that are separated by an aisle/ step. 5. two seats together in a diagonal pair that are separated by one seat. 6. two seats side by side that are separated by an aisle/ step. 7. two seats side by side that are separated by one seat in-between. We therefore guarantee seats together in 'pairs' in accordance with the above definition of 'pairs' unless we state otherwise in the respective ticket description. Group bookings of three or more persons may be seated in different rows, sectors or stands (within the positions of your allocated ticket category) and therefore separated from each other. We will however, sincerely try our hardest to seat groups together or as close together as possible, however we cannot guarantee this. Furthermore, the face values printed on your tickets may vary slightly to each other as certain sectors within your allocated ticket category may have different pricing structures. You acknowledge that we do not have any control over this. Since the ticket allocations are controlled by the event organisers, this minimum guarantee is usually also provided to all other registered ticketing companies/ sports event travel companies. In order to provide you with the above guarantee for seat groupings then all tickets must be placed under the same booking reference and paid for in a singular transaction. We are unable to 'connect' tickets that have been booked and paid for under different booking references.
Q. I am travelling with my family. Can I submit a special request for all my seats to be positioned together?
A. Yes, we will sincerely try our hardest to facilitate your request. Our customer support team will let you know if this is possible. Please contact our customer support team.
Q. What are the delivery options for event tickets?
A. Ticket delivery options for your chosen event will be displayed during the online booking process.
Q. I do not have a hotel delivery address. Do you have a local collection point where I can collect my event tickets?
A. Local collection points are only available at a selection of cities. To find out if ticket collection is available at your destination city, please see the corresponding delivery options for your chosen event. Alternatively, please contact our customer support team.
Q. I have doubts about the reliability of your hotel ticket delivery service. How do I know my event tickets are going to arrive? How can you put my mind at rest?
A. For hotel deliveries, event tickets will be delivered to the reception of your hotel. The receptionist at the hotel will sign for the tickets and keep them in a safe place behind the reception desk. For our customers’ peace of mind, we offer a personal 24 hour emergency telephone number in the event of any unlikely problems whilst at their destination city.
Q. Why are the prices for event tickets higher than the face value printed on the ticket?
A. Event tickets are sold above face value at brokered commercial market rates and reflect supply and demand for that particular game. In order to secure difficult to obtain tickets, preferred seating and to guarantee tickets in advance (before general sale) and at sold out events, we have to pay a high premium for the tickets. We do not control the costs set by officially appointed or third party ticket agents. Furthermore, prices reflect the following costs; ticket delivery, overseas taxation (where applicable), UK taxation (where applicable), overseas bank transaction charges, risks associated with currency exchange fluctuations, administration and service.
