Has anyone experienced a situation where they have somehow ended up with 2 fan I.D.'s & subsequently 2 associated e-mail addresses like I have ? I bought a Claret membership on 9/7 & received the e-mail confirmation but it advises of a follow-up mail which hasn't arrived. When I try to log on with this address there is no record of it but I can on with my other address but of course the Claret membership / fan I.D. won't match ! I have mailed them back but don't expect a quick reply, unreal....

Does anyone have any information on the re-sale of match tickets through the club for matches that ssn ticket holders can't attend? I was under the illusion that this was something  the club was doing this season, yet when I phoned the ticket office today, they said this was not happening. Can anyone clarify please?

Also, for those of us without a season ticket, don't forget the 50p online booking fee. 😂

All those 50p's come in handy for the club, when they're struggling in the Premier League. 😂😂
Print at home works fine

And the £1 postage

There's still a Ticket Exchange link on Pravda that goes to Ticketmaster.

I don't think that Villa have used TicketMaster in the past, so it might be new

I happily got into the ground last year using my phone display – with the QR code from the PDF nice and big on screen.

No getting away with paying that 50p though. I'd love to know What that covers. 😂

Just got my ticket for Bournemouth game in the Holte. Completely forgot about the £10 voucher you get with claret membership and this was automatically applied so ticket was only £23...bargain! Looking forward to getting the season off to a good start (hopefully).

I usually get to 3 or 4 games a season with the lad. With memberships to now buy to even try and get tickets and £50 tickets for some games it's probably going to cost the same as a season ticket when we entertained the likes of Rotherham, Millwall and Reading.

Just give them a call and have both email addresses/ref # ready, they’ve been very helpful in sorting things out for me, I’d be pretty confident they’ll just merge stuff, have half a memory had to do something similar once...

Cat A are Liverpool, Man City, Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal, Wolves, Man Utd. 7 games where some fans will be paying £50 to watch a newly promoted team is scandalous in my opinion. As I just put in the ticketing forum, we're not Chelsea whose fans are loaded and we're not Man City who win every week. The jump from £36 to £50 from Cat A to Cat B is ridiculous. In comparison Norwich have capped all their home tickets at £30

Big thanks and kudos to Lennythekad who has got me two tickets for the game against Bournemouth.

I can't wait to come back home.  :)

There wasn’t any categories last year. The match day tickets were the same for every game....those prices are now the category C prices. Roughly cat B are 10% on top of that and cat A are just huge !
On purchasing Bournemouth tickets tonight I bought 4, assigning the other 3 to family members . System would only take my £10 off and it wouldn’t come off the others. 2 of which are my parents in their 80’s (no e mail or net).
Any idea how I get their £10 off applied in the future ?

I calculated about 4000 tickets went in first half hour tonight

Really?

How did you work that out? (Not said confrontationally, genuinely interested).

Yeah but Norwich have also not spent any money in the transfer market.

We can't get all excited about the expensive players and not expect to spend more money to watch the games.

50 instead of 36 for a PL match against the most watchable teams does not seem insanely spendy to me.

If you are going to suggest tickets should be priced for 'a newly promoted team' then you should also expect to be seeing the transfer market activity of your average newly promoted team.

(Obviously Leeds could put theirs up at £70 and still sell 60,000).

Also - not being funny, but don't you spend most of your time telling us how shit our support is ('OMG! We've only sold 25,000 for Rotherham away! We should shift at least 500,000 for that!)?

If so, you've suddenly found some extenuating circumstances, by the looks of it.
