Bundle Rule

Tuesday 20 September 2005

Once again the Club has done everything it can to reward its most loyal supporters - Season Ticket Holders and 6 and 10 Match Deal Holders - by making them exempt from the Bundle Rule* that will apply to ClubFFC Members for all A+ and A grade matches this season.

*Bundle rule: Club FFC Members must buy the same number and type of tickets in a C grade game as they wish to purchase for an A+ or A grade game, i.e. if you wish to buy 2 adult tickets to Man U, you must buy 2 adult tickets in a C grade game.

- The C Grade Bundle Rule applies to all Members - Members must buy the same number and type of tickets in a C grade game as they wish to purchase for Man U, i.e. if you wish to buy 2 adult tickets to Man U, you must buy 2 adult tickets in a C grade game.

- The C grade games available to choose from will be West Brom, Wigan and Boro.

- C game tickets bought by Members as part of the C Grade Bundle Rule will be non-refundable and cannot be upgraded (they can be exchanged for one of the C grade games listed above)

The Club believes this strategy is both necessary and positive in a number of ways. It will help us fill the Stadium for our lower demand matches to give the Team the support it needs to be successful and the resources to improve the squad each season.

It also shows the benefit of committing to more that just the big games of the season - no Club can survive in the Premiership if its supporters only came along to the 4 or 5 highest profile games. The greatest benefits and first access to the biggest games will always be given to our most loyal fans - those who commit to turn up to support the Club on a regular basis through thick and thin.

All ClubFFC Members are reminded that the price of tickets to C grade games has dropped since last season with adult tickets from only £25 and kids tickets are only £5. Members also have the option of upgrading their Membership to a 6 or 10 Match Deal or a full Season Ticket. In doing this, not only can they secure a ticket to the Man U game, but they would also get a £30 refund as Membership is included free with the 6/10 Match Deal and Season Ticket. Any supporters wishing to upgrade their Membership should contact the Ticket Office directly on 0870 442 1234 (select option 3) before 7 September.

TOUTING, AND AWAY FANS IN HOME AREAS

The Club will be strictly monitoring the on-selling of tickets for this match, and also taking strong action against any supporter who is found to have sold or provided a Home area ticket to an Away fan. Any supporters who are considering selling their tickets to a tout or to an Away fan who will be sitting in a Home area risk having their Season Ticket, Match Deal or Membership confiscated for the rest of the season without receiving a refund, and being banned from Craven Cottage indefinitely.
