Yep, it's a mess. It really can't be that hard to let you move your seat online.

Can people advise if there is  better way of doing this. I have my ST but I like to take my niece to games where possible. The only way i know I can do this is to sell my ticket back to the club and then buy 2 tickets together. I cant/won't do this though until mines sells so is there a better way I can do it?

You need to get your niece a membership (if she does not have one already) and then when the game goes on sale to members phone the club up, find 2 together and move your seat and buy one for your niece

I have a similar situation with my nephew. He has a Villa Cubs membership, but at the time tickets go on sale to Villa Cubs & members, Which is online at 5pm so you can’t sort it by phone, I am not entitled to buy one next to him for myself as a Season Ticket holder (even if I had already put my own ticket back in the pot). This is crazy - we can’t be the only adult season ticket holders who want to take a child to a few games a season. It’s pretty basic!

I get round it because I also have a claret membership for my husband, so I buy tickets elsewhere in the ground for me and my nephew, using my husband and my nephew’s memberships. Then my husband sits in my season ticket seat.....which is fine if you have a spare membership floating about as I have, but most people will just have one for their ‘cub’.



I will have to get her a cubs membership. I just thought there would be an easier way.

Amfy you can just move a ST seat easily, then but the one next to him. They might mot let you do both until the ST purchase window, but it should be very doable.

I know I. An move my season ticket easily, but then I’d need to be sure of being able to get the one next to it when the memberships went on sale.
By the ST purchase window, there is very limited choice.

Purchased a Burnley ticket last night but was wondering why I hadn't received a confirmation email with ticket as PDF.

Just had a look on my settings and noticed it was a ticket resale? What happens now, should I have actually got email or will it come through the post (if paper tickets are actually still a thing).

Got a ticket for the Burnley game for a relative and was sent confirmation of receipt and ground rules, waited for a few days and emailed them about actual ticket hadn't come through, ticket received through email before they answered enquiry

I’d say you should have an email. They only do postal tickets for away games now as far as I can see.

Is the ticket office open to go in and ask why I didn't get email confirmation after purchasing Burnley ticket? Get free day on Tuesday so will pop down there if you can still do it.

There’s no one in the ticket office. They are working from home. You can phone them though.

As a season ticket seller, I can sell back to the club but at a 20% loss. But they will only put my 2 tickets on sale when all the others have sold out. Thing is, my seats are bang on the halfway line so another fan would possibly want them over some corner somewhere, or wherever the last seats are. I understand that the club want to sell their tickets before mine, and I have no problem with that. On the other hand, I could have sold them to a mate, to somebody on here, etc but that is a punishable offence now. Means, that I'm down the thick end of 150 quid for the Manchester City and Leicester matches.

I can't see how the club would know if you'd passed them on to a mate for a couple of games, unless you'd let it slip online that that was your intention.
