Why do prices vary?
Availability and prices of tickets are driven by market demand; they are not determined by FootballTicketTrade. All
the tickets are listed and priced by approved ticket specialists. Each ticket specialist competes with others to
provide you with a large selection of tickets. Face value refers to the price printed on the "face" of the ticket or
the original purchase price in the primary market. The face value of a ticket can differ from the selling price,
because the tickets listed on FootballTicketTrade.com are sold by a third party at "market value". If the event is
in high demand, the selling price is generally much higher than the face value on the ticket and vice versa.
Are tickets guaranteed?
FootballTicketTrade.com works with a small network of ticket specialists to ensure reliable service.
FootballTicketTrade.com provides a secure online marketplace only and is not the seller of, and does not take
responsibility for, any tickets sold through the online marketplace. We do however offer you a 150% money back
guarantee: In the highly unlikely case you do not receive tickets for the seats you ordered in time for the match,
we will refund 100% of your money back, plus we will offer you a credit worth 50% of your original purchase towards
Are tickets for home/away supporters?
All tickets listed for an event are for the home team sections unless otherwise specifically stated. Therefore if
tickets are simply listed as "Behind the Goal" or "Longside" they will be for home team supporters. Many times the
seller can also offer tickets for the visiting team section but the tickets will be describes as such, For Example:
Arsenal v Liverpool - the tickets for the visiting team will say "Visitors Section", "Liverpool Section" or "Away
* Please note, the above specifications do not apply to matches that are played at a Neutral Venue/Stadium? (such as
Champions League Final, Europa League Final, FA Cup Final, League Cup Final or World Cup events). In these cases the
sellers usually state to which end their allocations belong. If there is no indication please assume the seats could
be allocated in either end of the ground.
Are tickets sat together?
Tickets are issued and allocated in maximum groupings of 4-together. The seller can guarantee that nobody will sit
alone so if you buy 3 tickets or less they will always be together. If you buy 4 or more tickets, the seller can try
to get them all together but they may be split into groupings of 2+2 / 2+3 / 4+2 / etc. If you need all tickets to
be sat together please contact our customer service hotline and a representative will assist you to find the tickets
What is the exact seat location of the tickets listed?
The exact location of seats oftentimes cannot be provided at the time of booking as ticket allocations are not
confirmed to the suppliers in advance. For this reason you may only find generic descriptions of seat locations
(Behind the Goal, Longside, Away Section). Please assume that the seat location may be the worst allocated within a
generic description, some listings have more information regarding the allocations but the price tends to be higher.
If you are unsure about the location of the seats based on the descriptions, please see the venue maps or contact
our customer service team for clarification.
When will I receive my tickets?
Tickets for football events are generally released by the clubs only the week leading up to the match. Suppliers try
to get all tickets dispatched as soon as possible, and you are advised by email when they are sent.
Deliveries also depend on the format of the ticket. These can either be regular physical tickets or in most cases,
tickets tend to be released by the clubs in an electronic configuration. The most common ticket formats nowadays are
either PDF files or Mobile Tickets.
PDF tickets are usually sent out between 24/48 hrs prior to the event date for our customers to
print at home at their own convenience.
Mobile Tickets are usually transferred 24/48 hrs before the match and, depending on the club or
federation responsible to release them, our customers may be required to download an application in order to receive
them and present at the stadium gates.
In both cases, specific instructions are always emailed to the buyer depending on their ticket selection.
PHYSICAL (PAPER) TICKETS
Suppliers try to get all tickets dispatched within 3-5 days prior to the event and you are advised by email when they
are sent. Once receiving notification of dispatch, you can expect them the following day for UK deliveries or within
1-3 days for International deliveries. Sometimes tickets can be delivered on the day of the event and/or the seller
will require you to collect the tickets locally. If you are concerned that this will not give you enough time to
reach the event, please contact us so we can arrange an alternative delivery method. If you are travelling from
abroad to see a football match, we encourage you to provide a local delivery address or hotel in the match
How are tickets delivered?
PDF files and Mobile Tickets are the most convenient form of tickets. These are transferred electronically either via
email or through a dedicated application and you can expect to receive them immediately after they are sent out.
Usually between 24/48 hrs prior to the event date.
In all cases, specific instructions are always emailed to the buyer depending on their ticket selection to make sure
tickets are received accordingly.
PHYSICAL (PAPER) TICKETS
All tickets are sent using secure shipment methods, depending on your location. If the tickets are sent within the UK
for a UK event, they will be dispatched via Special Next Day Delivery / Bike Courier / Hand Delivery or by Private
Courier and will require a signature. Delivery times may vary depending on the delivery method chosen at purchase.
If they are being delivered to your hotel in Italy / Spain / Germany / Netherlands or Portugal the sellers may use
courier companies and/or private couriers.
Please provide a secure address to ensure someone is available to sign for the envelope. If you are staying in a
hotel you need to authorize anyone at the hotel to accept the delivery on your behalf so you may want to advise
them, you will be expecting a delivery. If no one is available to sign for the delivery, your postman/courier will
leave a "while you were out card" and you will be able to collect your envelope from your local Sorting Office (The
address can be found on the back of the card). If you have not received a 'While you were out' card or you have not
been given a tracking number, please contact us as soon as possible. For international orders, tickets may be sent
via FedEx, DHL, UPS, or any other International Courier Service. The mentioned courier companies provide online
tracking to ensure fast and secure deliveries. Please contact us after receiving the dispatch email so we can
provide you the tracking number.

Please contact our customer service team by phone or by email to change your delivery address. Please have at hand
your Order Reference Number so we can find your order. If there is a change in shipping costs that result by you
changing the delivery address you will be charged or refunded the difference.
Why have I been asked to provide Proof of Billing Address?
Due to increasing amount of fraudulent debit / credit cards, you may be asked to provide documentary evidence to
verify the correct details correspond to the billing address of the credit card. Please be assured we keep your
in your order being cancelled.
Can I cancel my tickets once purchased?
FootballTicketTrade.com does not have an exchange, refund or cancellation policy unless an event is cancelled
entirely and not rescheduled. If an event is rescheduled and you are not able to attend, we cannot offer any
refunds. This is also mentioned in our Terms and Conditions. We do however offer you the opportunity to resell your
tickets on our website in an attempt to recover any losses.
