Season Ticket 2017/18 Information
The renewal window for Season Tickets for the 2017/18 season will open on Wednesday March 1st 2017 at 10am. The renewal window will remain open for 24 days.
This year the renewal period will be split into two phases, a renewal and a relocation phase.
Phase 1: Renewal
|Wed March 1st – 10:00||Tues March 14th – 10:00|
During the renewal phase, you can only renew into your current section; e.g. Clan Terrace can only renew into Clan Terrace, Main Terrace can only renew into Main Terrace and Enclosure Season Ticket holders can only renew into the Enclosure.
Phase 2: Relocation
|Wed March 15th – 10:00||Fri March 24th – 17:00|
During this relocation period, if there is space you can move to another area of the ground. This is strictly on a first come first served basis until that area of the ground is sold out.
It is important to note that once you renew your Season Ticket to a certain area, it cannot be changed to another location after that.
If you wish to relocate to another area then you should wait until the relocation phase opens on March 15th. Please note that if your current area sells out after March 14th we cannot guarantee your Season Ticket renewal into this area will still be available.
Following the renewal period, the Early Bird Season Tickets will go on sale, depending on availability. This period will last for 30 days.
