Cubs/Clarets membership
« on: June 13, 2019, 10:01:18 AM »
I've been trying for weeks to get through to the ticket office to enquire about memberships so that my daughter can get in for the release of next year's tickets but the number either rings off straight away or rings for a while and then rings off. Obviously, it's busy today but, as i say, I've been trying for weeks now. Has anyone managed to get through or know when next year's memberships will go on sale?

The club are just saying 'soon' to everything at the moment.

I can't understand why season tickets were not back on sale the day after the final.  They've really missed a trick there and seems very much what I'd have expected from previous regimes not our current supposedly astute forward thinking set up.

I gave up and rang the main desk. Apparently my mistake was entering option 2 (for cubs and claret membership) when I should have pressed 1 for season ticket membership... even though I'm enquiring about cubs/clarets membership. Obvious really.

Anyhoo, it appears there may or may not be a cubs membership system and it may or may not be in place in time for me to get my children a ticket for the first home game. So when my children get home excited from school tonight and ask about going to the first home game, I can give them the encouraging answer of 'maybe.'

It's an absolute shambles.  Just shows that not everything the new regime has brought is in very good.

I've been looking at this on the official site. Does Claret membership get you next in queue for away tickets after season ticket holders?

It did last season, and gave you priority access to home tickets. The away sales might be different this season, with smaller allocations and more season ticket holders.

Yes the Claret membership gave members priority for ticket sales, including Wembley.

Thanks both. I'll probably sign up for a chance of tickets for the London/Brighton/Watford games.

When available of course.

I've just bought a Claret membership. I'm not sure I'll be at any games other than Everton this season but I thought I'd better get one now just in case.

It feels a bit like purchasing an 'express' ticket for Top of the Rock or 'fast-track' entrance to Madame Tussaud's. Except I may not be going to New York or London.

Very glad I did that the week before last, the queues were horrendous, and it was sweltering in there.

Yep. It's quite ridiculous tbh.

Yep. Someone posted about this yesterday on the season ticket holder thread. No one needs the pack at the games so no big deal if they are dispatched late.

Fair points & I got £10 off the Bournemouth ticket for the Holte, (£23 instead of £33) which was applied when booking. Not all bad then but if this had been a S/T delay it would have been a different story !

What are you expecting in the pack?  There was nothing in season ticket packs other than the cards.
