Q: How can I buy a Family Area match ticket?
A: Family Area match tickets are only available through the Ticket Office. Please call 020 8847 2511 (option 1), Monday-Friday from 10am until 4pm.
Q: If the club are using Ticket Access Points to help manage access to tickets and we the fans are being allowed to purchase on behalf of our friends and family, is there a limit to the number of tickets we can purchase?
A: Fans who qualify (via their TAP) will only will be able to buy their ticket and a ticket for each of their friends and family who qualify. For example, if fans need 50 Ticket Access Points to buy on the first day of sales; fan A has 52 TAPs and has five friends and family he's connected with and two of them have 50 or more TAPs and the other three have less than 50 TAPs. Fan A can buy three tickets – one for each of the people who have 50+ TAPs. If Fan A wants to buy for himself and all five friends and family then he'll need to wait until the fan with the lowest number of TAPs qualifies for access.
Q: If I have friends and family connections that don't qualify at the same time as me? For example, if I have someone who has only purchased on General Sale connected to my account and I'm a Season Ticket Holder with enough TAPs to access on day one of sales could I purchase for my Friend?
A: No, as it is one per person. Only when your friend qualifies will you be able to purchase their ticket for them in order to sit together.
Q: I don't know my login details?
A: If you don't know your login details and you know you have an account, please DO NOT register a new account as you'll end up locking yourself out. Call or email the Ticket Office with your name, address and fan number - you will then be notified of your login details by email.
Q: Why can't I login and buy tickets?
A: This could be for a number of reasons. The main reason is most likely that for this game you do not meet the criteria to purchase, i.e. you are not a Season Ticket Holder, Member or do not have a purchasing history. If that's not the case please do contact the Ticket Office on 020 8847 2511 (option 1).

A: Select the drop down menu where it says Adult, you'll see other options there. Select the one you require and update the basket. You should see the price and ticket type change.
Q: In my basket, it says "one or more customers do not qualify" what does this mean?
A: This means either you or your friends and family do not meet the criteria to buy tickets for that game. Therefore, if you have purchased tickets in the past and others haven't, you need to remove them from your basket to proceed to buy.
Q: How many tickets can I buy?
A: Each match varies, we'll identify allocations online when we announce that tickets for a given match go on sale.

Severely Restricted View is where you are able to watch the match but the view of one or more of the goals is obscured. These tickets are priced accordingly, with a discount on the advertised face value for that area. There are also other seats in the stadium where there is a roof supporting pillar in the viewpoint.
