FC United v Benfica ticket arrangements announced

FC United is delighted to announce the arrangements for ticket sales for the international friendly match against Benfica which will also be the official opening game at our new home of Broadhurst Park.

This match will take place on Friday 29 May 2015 with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The match is an ALL TICKET FIXTURE.

Ticket prices for this match are as follows: -

Adults £8
Concessions £5
Under 18s £2

Concession means the following:
• Over 60s
• In receipt of income support or job seekers allowance
• Student with a valid NUS card

Any person applying for a concession may be asked to produce identification at the turnstile. If a supporter is unwaged and do not have proof of any of the above they must contact the FC United office prior to a game.

Tickets will be sold in the following priority order.

1. To FC United members (joined by 29 April 2015) who are also season ticket holders. (from 12-15 May)
2. To FC United members (joined by 29 April 2015) or season ticket holders. (from 16-22 May)
3. On general sale if any tickets remain. (from 23 May)

For categories 1 and 2, tickets can be purchased online and members and season ticket holders will be able to buy tickets for other members on entering the appropriate membership number and season ticket number and postcode for the person they are buying for. This will enable members to buy tickets for friends and family members should they wish. Members will have the option of having tickets sent by post (for an extra payment) or they can collect them from the ground.

Members are strongly encouraged to purchase their tickets online if possible as this will ease the pressure on our staff and volunteers who are in the process of moving into our new offices at Broadhurst Park. Please only order by phone if you have to. Our FC United Benfica ticket hotline number is 07874 613795. If the line is engaged please call back and do not leave a message.
