Arsenal have released details of the ticketing procedure for the 2020/21 season and, courtesy of Covid-19, they are, unsurprisingly, very complicated.
The Gunners are planning to allow some fans into Emirates Stadium from 3 October when we face Sheffield United in our second home game of the new campaign.
Capacity for the game against the Blades has yet to be confirmed but it will be significantly lower than the number of registered season ticket holders which means a ballot system will be in place until normal service can be resumed.
Below, you’ll find a very, very, very brief overview of the system the club has put in place, however, we can’t stress this enough…go and read ALL the details for yourselves. See here.
— Overview —
Gold and Platinum members can make an ‘Initial Payment’ to secure automatic entry into ballots for every home game across all competitions. This ‘Initial Payment’ also acts as a deposit on a season ticket should a return to full capacity get the green light and you want to commit to it.
If successful in the ballot, payment will be automatically taken from the account holder’s registered bank account. Match ticket prices are still categorised A-D by game importance. Refunds will not be available, but the ticket can be transferred to someone else in your ticket group.
For track and trace purposes, names on season tickets need to correspond with those attending and ID will be required to enter the stadium. With that in mind, the club will allow people to the season ticket holder’s name via a form which will be sent by email as part of the process.
Everybody attending matches at the Emirates Stadium needs to adhere to a code of conduct.
As we said above, do go and read the full details, which can be found here.
