Friends and family midweek tickets.

by windermereROYAL » 16 Sep 2018 18:03

Am I right in assuming I can get a friend a ticket for tenner for the Norwich game? if so I`m unable to do it online today, its coming up as a £23 charge.
I seem to remember something pre-season stating you can do it online this year.

FOUND THIS, at the bottom is tells me it can be done online. (my friend is a member and he is on my F and F list.)

For our Sky Bet Championship evening games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, any supporter with a Season Ticket will be able to purchase up to two further tickets for their friends at the price of £10 Adults and £5 Concessions, valid in any area of the stadium.
To introduce the offer, we are also running these rates for our Friday-night fixture against Derby County on 3rd August – the big kick-off for the new campaign!
And you’ll be able to switch your Season Ticket seat for the game too to sit with your friends too – you will need to do that at the time of purchasing.
The offer will be available online, except for seat moves and in Club 1871 (South Stand). Membership is required in Club 1871 and therefore must be done directly via the Ticket Office, by visiting at Madejski Stadium or ringing 0118 968 1313.

You can definitely do it, I bought several cheap tickets for the Norwich game. Quite superb that you can get tickets so cheaply for our games.
I always ring the TO, is always easy and efficient.

You can do it online - but only for paper tickets assigned to your season ticket (so not on someone's card and no points awarded).

To buy for another member on their card, it's ticket office on the phone or in person only - website not set up for this for whatever technical reason.

Nothing additional I assume to whatever checks they already have at the gate that stops me buying a ticket on my dad's over 65 member card and going through the gate with it myself (30 odd years away from qualifying). Perfectly possibly to buy a ticket for the wrong age category for any match; just a case of whether you get caught or not (no idea if that risk is sizeable - wrong person to ask).

They do ticket checking at every game, although only at random gates. When a ticket is put in the readers there are lights inside the gate that show if it is a concession ticket and if the person using it looks too old/young they get asked for proof of age. If you are caught using the wrong ticket they can confiscate the one you are using and make you return to the TO to buy a full (matchday) price ticket.
