REGISTERED DISABLED SUPPORTERS SCHEME (NEW PURPLE MEMBERSHIP) 2015/2016 SEASON
The Purple Membership Scheme is now open for the 2015/2016 season. The scheme will remain open throughout the 2015/2016 season. However, disabled supporters joining the scheme from the end of January 2016 onwards may have difficulty booking tickets due to the fact that the majority of home games go on sale two months in advance.

Ticket Transfer: A New Service for Disabled Supporters
The Disabled Supporters Ticket Transfer Service will enable Season Ticket holders who are unable to attend a game to either transfer their season ticket places to another Registered Disabled Supporter (Purple Member) or to a disabled supporter who is not a member. However, in the case of a transfer to a non- member either you or the disabled supporter concerned will have to provide the required proof of disability before the ticket transfer can be made.
Disabled Supporters will be able to use the Ticket Transfer Service via the Disability Liaison Team and NOT online. This is to ensure that (a) the carer/companion seat gets included in the Ticket Transfer and (b) that the disabled supporters concessionary ticket scheme is not abused in any way.
The Ticket Transfer Service will come into operation once a game has sold out and will operate alongside the existing Disabled Supporters Ticket Exchange Scheme. For further information please contact the Disability Liaison Team on 020 7619 5050.
