Disabled Supporters Ticket Exchange (TX)
Ticket Exchange works in the following way: Registered Disabled Season ticket holders, (Gold Members) who find that they are unable to attend a game, may email their details to email@example.com, with Ticket Exchange in the subject heading, or telephone the Disability Liaison Team on 020 7619 5050 and post their tickets for sale to Registered disabled supporters - Purple Members (subject to restrictions).
Registered disabled supporters - Purple Members looking for tickets may register an interest by completing the Ticket Exchange – Buy form. Importantly, the exchange will only come into operation on matches that have sold out. If submitting the form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, supporters must ensure that Ticket Exchange Buy and the game concerned are in the subject heading.
Season Ticket holders who successfully sell their seat will have their membership card deactivated for that match. The value of all ticket(s) sold will be held in an account until the end of the season: this will be deducted from the following season’s membership fee (Season Ticket renewal). Only upon completion of each successful Ticket Exchange transaction is the seller’s membership card automatically deactivated which then activates the purchaser’s membership card.
We are unable to guarantee that seats that have been offered for sale will be sold. The seller of the ticket will be charged a nominal administration fee of approximately 10% which will fund the development and operation of the Ticket Exchange. The seller will therefore receive approximately 90% of the paid ticket value.
Ticket Exchange Buy and Ticket Exchange Sell forms can be found beneath all games marked Sold Out - TX.

Registration of Credit/Debit card service 2012/2013
Registered Disabled Supporters (Gold or Purple Members) can register a debit or credit card number with the Disability Liaison Team. By doing so, supporters will again be able to submit their match ticket booking forms by email because; in the payment section they will only need to include the last four digits of their registered credit/debit card along with the CV2 number. Click here to download a debit/credit card registration form. Please note completed registration forms must be returned by post or faxed to 020 7704 4041.
