Important ticket information for supporters attending tonight’s Windsor Park game
Posted : 22nd August 2019 at 08:16:28
Linfield FC has been greatly encouraged by the widespread excitement in the build up to tonight’s historic UEFA Europa League play off first leg tie against Qarabag at Windsor Park.
Advance ticket sales have been very positive, as supporters look forward to a first ever game involving an Irish League team in the fourth round of a European competition.
However, as this club monitors trends in the sale of match tickets very closely, there would appear to have been a disproportionately high number of concession tickets sold for tonight’s game and other recent Europa League games.
As a result, this club has arranged for additional stewards to be in place at the entrance to the turnstiles before tonight’s game.
The role of these stewards will be to check match tickets in the possession of adults, prior to ticket scanning at the turnstiles.
Any adult (age 16-65) found to be in possession of a concession match ticket will not gain entry and have the ticket retained by the steward, without refund.
There will be no exception to this policy and no right of appeal.
In case of any possible doubt concerning age, it would be advisable to be in possession of suitable ID.
Any adult who has bought a concession ticket can swap the ticket for an adult ticket and pay the shortfall at the Superstore today.
There will be no such opportunity to swap tickets in the pre match period before tonight’s game.
This club reported last season that a significant number of junior season tickets were confiscated from adults trying to gain admission to our match days and so regrettably (and at cost to this club), these routine checks will have to continue once our home league campaign resumes with a league game against Glentoran on Saturday September 14.
This club will rely on the patience and understanding of our countless genuine supporters while these checks take place at the turnstiles.
The vast majority of our loyal supporters will undoubtedly take the same dim view of this fraudulent malpractice as the club does.
