SEASON TICKETS & MATCH TICKETS
Q: Now that my Direct Debit payments for the current season have been fulfilled, with the current campaign postponed, why have next seasons payments commenced?
A: To continue to allow supporters to spread payments over a 12 month period, the club has progressed with the planned payment scheme and will continue to do so for all renewing season tickets. Should you wish to stop payments for next season, you can do so over the phone with a member of the Ticket Office.
Q: Do I still need to renew my seat by the June 14 Deadline Day, to keep my seat for next season?
A: No, the club has removed the June 14 deadline, to allow Season Ticket Holders to renew their seat ahead of the 2020/21 season in their own time - without any worry of losing their place at Welford Road.
Q: When will rescheduled fixtures be played?
A: At this stage, we are unaware of any rescheduled dates for postponed fixtures and will continue to work with Premiership Rugby, European Rugby and broadcast partners on re-arranged dates for all fixtures. The intention is to play all remaining fixtures.
Q: What if I can’t make the rearranged fixture?
A: As per the club’s Terms & Conditions: “It is the ticket holder's responsibility to ascertain the date and kick-off time of the rearranged match. The club will have no further liability whatsoever, including (but not limited to) any indirect or consequential loss or damage, loss of enjoyment or travel costs.”
Please note: Supporters are welcome to speak with a member of the Ticket Office regarding moving their purchased ticket to another postponed fixture, should they not be able to make the rescheduled date, when these are announced.
Q: What if I have spent money on travel or accommodation for the match?
A: See above.
Q: We are coming to the match as a group and some of us cannot make the match now or may not be able to make the rearranged match?
A: Our Ticket Office team will be happy to talk through options for getting the whole group to a match in the future.
Q: Will I be refunded for tickets purchased to fixtures that have been postponed?
A: The club has confirmed the options available to Season Ticket Holders and match ticket purchasers, as well as all other supporters who have have made matchday bookings. This must be done online and you can find the information HERE.
Q: As a season ticket holder, will I get a refund for postponed fixtures?
A: Seasonal products will be credited with a pro-rata figure (5/16th) in respect of the remaining games, with match products credited on the purchase cost.
Q: What are my options for the money I have spent with the club on fixtures that have not been played?
A: If fixtures are cancelled, played behind closed doors or moved to other venues, supporters with 2019/20 season tickets or match tickets for any affected home fixture will have the option to Donate, Credit or get a Refund. For all the information, including how to choose the option for you CLICK HERE.
Q: As a season ticket holder, can I choose to use the credit for next season's season ticket?
A: Yes, if you opt to leave your money in credit with the club, it can be used against any future season or match ticket purchase. For those who have already begun payments for the 2020/21 season, via direct debit, you will need to email the Ticket Office with this request and it will be only credited after a confirmation of remaining 2019/20 fixtures to be played behind closed doors or cancelled.
Q: I would like to take some money back but not all of it, so can I split my balance between Donate, Credit or Refund?
A: Yes, it is possible to make a separate decision for each product purchased.
For example, if you are a season ticket holder and you have bought extra match tickets for family and friends or bought any tickets for the European Challenge Cup quarter-final against Castres, and/or car park or bus passes, you could choose to Donate, Credit or Refund the ticket cost and make a different choice for extra tickets or travel.
Similarly, if you hold your tickets as a couple/family and would like to Donate the cost of one ticket and Refund the rest, you can do this by completing a separate form for each ticket.
Please note, if you pay for multiple tickets (as a couple, family or other group) and you list the other season tickets on the form, then the Ticket Office will automatically copy the purchaser’s option. For example, if you name 2 parents and 2 children on the form and select Donate then the cost of all 4 tickets will be donated unless you choose to split among the options outlined above.
In this instance, if you would like to split the options 50/50 you will need to submit 2 forms (Parent 1 & Child 1 Donate, Parent 2 & Child 2 Credit/Refund). You will still be able to make other choices on your additional products – match tickets and car park or bus passes.
Q: What do I do in regards to away tickets I have purchased through Leicester Tigers Ticket Office?
A: In line with Tigers policy, the host club have communicated that these fixtures have been postponed – not cancelled – and all purchased tickets will be honoured on rescheduled dates.
Q: How can we find out if a scheduled event, during the postponement period, is still going ahead?
A: Supporters can see updates on scheduled events HERE.
Q: Will I be refunded for tickets purchased to club events that have been postponed?
A: All tickets purchased to upcoming events will be honoured on rescheduled dates. This includes but is not limited to the Hall of Fame, Business Club events, the annual Tryline / Clubhouse Dinner, Supporters’ Awards.
