There are a number of changes to the way spectators can buy tickets in 2022.
Partnering with Future Ticketing we have implemented a ticketing system that will allow spectators to buy tickets online via our website. The change is in part due to the covid 19 guidance, reducing physical contact and the need to handle cash, but it also enables Hornets to progress its ticketing and sales strategies supporting us to grow our crowds.
What to expect
In a change to how we operate there will be no cash turnstiles and spectators are now able to purchase unreserved seating for the season or a game. In doing so, currently we do not anticipate having to implement a social distancing plan therefore spectators will be able to choose there seat on arrival. We will no longer operate green and amber covid zones but are required to operate a red zone for the benefits of players and staff. However in a change from 2021 fans and spectators should have full use of the main stand without tunnel restriction.
We remind all spectators to remain vigilant and observe any covid protocols that are in place throughout the duration of the season these will be notified through our website, at the stadium and through club communications. Purchasing your ticket couldn't be easier, simply select the event you wish to purchase and follow the on-screen instructions to complete you season pass or ticket purchase. Alternatively, you can call the office or visit our ticket office (during opening hours) to purchase at the stadium club. Spectators will be able to purchase tickets on match day via the ticket office.
Using your new season pass is also very simple. When arriving at the ground you can gain entry by simply scanning your pass at the turnstile scanner, or if you're in hospitality via our friendly front of house staff in reception. All your seating and turnstile information is printed directly on your card and ticket.
