2 BECOMING A MEMBER


2.1 To become a Member the Applicant must submit an Application Form to the Company (or, in the case of an existing Member, provide the Application Confirmation) and pay the Joining Fee to the Company. An Application Form must be accepted by the Company in order for the Applicant to become a Member. Details of the application procedure and conditions are at clause 19.

2.2 On acceptance of the Application Form or receipt of the Application Confirmation by the Company, the Applicant shall be deemed a Member and as such the Member and the Company shall be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement for the duration of the Term or until this Agreement is terminated pursuant to clause 16.

2.3 If the Applicant paid the lifetime joining fee under the 2011-2016 Membership Scheme or the 2016-2021 Membership Scheme then no joining fee will apply.

2.4 If the Member pays the lifetime joining fee under this Agreement (or, for the avoidance of doubt, under the 2011-2016 Membership Scheme or 2016-2021 Membership Scheme) then that Member shall not be required to pay any further joining fees for the 50-season period following the first season of its membership. In order to renew the Member's membership of the 1901 membership scheme at the end of the Term, that Member will still need to follow the process set out in clause 13 to form a new contract with the Company for the renewed membership and agree to comply with the terms applicable to the renewed membership scheme made available by the Company.

3 PAYMENTS


3.1 The Joining Fee is to be paid either by the Applicant or by another on behalf of the Applicant. The Joining Fee must be paid prior to or at the time the Application Form or the Application Confirmation is submitted to the Company and must be paid in full before the Company will accept the application.

3.2 Upon acceptance of the Application Form or receipt of the Application Confirmation (as applicable) by the Company, the Member shall pay the (first) Monthly Instalment (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) no later than 14 days prior to the Commencement Date and shall until April 2026 pay all subsequent Monthly Instalments (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) no later than one day prior to the start of each month (March 2026 being the final month during the Term during which a Monthly Instalment is due).

3.3 If the Member is a Trader, in addition to the Joining Fee and Monthly Instalments (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) the Member shall within five Business Days of receipt of a valid invoice pay VAT on all such fees.

3.4 If the Member fails to pay a Monthly Instalment (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) the Company may at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights it has under this Agreement:

  • (a) if the Member is a Trader, charge the Member interest on any unpaid sum at the rate of 2% per annum above the Bank of England's base rate from time to time for the period between the due date and date the payment is made. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the Bank of England's base rate is less than or equal to 0% per annum, the rate of interest for the purposes of this clause 3.4(a) shall be 2% per annum;
  • (b) charge the Member a £10.00 administration fee (exclusive of VAT);
  • (c) withhold from the Member tickets to all Relevant Events; and/or
  • (d) refuse entry to the Member and/or Nominee to the Designated Areas, Designated Car Parking and/or Stadium for all Relevant Events, pending payment by the Member of all outstanding amounts due.

3.5 If the Member fails to make direct debit payments of the Monthly Instalments (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) on three or more occasions the Company may at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights it has under this Agreement withdraw the direct debit facility and require the Member to make payments of all Monthly Instalments (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) for the Term by no later than the start of the next Season.

3.6 Where the Company holds money on account for the Member, the Company shall be entitled to set off those sums against any liability that the Member owes to it. This means that the Company can use Monthly Instalments (or such other instalments agreed between the Member and the Company) it holds on account for the Member to reduce future payments that the Member is due to make. Any money that the Company holds on account for the Member will be: (i) set off against future payments due for the remainder of the then current Season; and (ii) if the Company still holds money on account for the Member at the end of the then current Season, set off against payments due for future Seasons during the Term.

4 RIGHTS


4.1 In return for the payments made pursuant to clause 3 the Company shall unless prevented by Force Majeure or any other reason outside of its control (including the circumstances referred to in the Risk Statement in clause 18) grant the Member the following during the Term and during Opening Hours on the day of a Relevant Event:

  • (a) the right to use of the Common Parts for the purposes of accessing and leaving the Stadium and Designated Car Parking;
  • (b) the right to use the Designated Areas, Designated Car Parking (as applicable) and Stadium;
  • (c) where applicable, the right to use the Car Park Space as allocated by the Company to the Member and in particular:

  • (d) the exclusive right to use the Seat(s) for all Relevant Events; and
  • (e) subject to availability, the right to reserve places in the restaurant of the Hospitality Area equivalent to the number of Seats held by the Member (reservation of restaurant places must be made in advance).

4.2 Members shall only park in the Car Park Space(s) allocated to them by the Company; sharing of Car Park Space(s) between Members is prohibited.

5 EVENT-BY-EVENT TRANSFERS AND PERMANENT TRANSFERS


5.1 The Member may permit another person (the "Nominee") to enjoy for the duration of a Relevant Event the Rights set out in clause 4 without notification or consent of the Company, on the condition that the Member is liable for all acts and omissions of the Nominee ("Event-by-Event Transfer"). The Member acknowledges that the Company may require the Member to provide details of the Nominee attending the Relevant Event and, if requested to do so, the Member shall promptly provide the Company with such Nominee details. When providing the Company with such Nominee details, the Member shall ensure that the Member has all applicable rights and consents to do so. If acts and/or omissions of the Nominee cause loss to the Company, the Company may issue legal proceedings against the Member for reimbursement of all costs resulting from those acts and/or omissions (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs). If the Member is a Trader (or otherwise acting in a professional capacity), the Member shall fully indemnify the Company against all losses, costs, claims, demands, proceedings or other liabilities arising as a result of any act or omission of the Nominee and/or the Member. In addition, the Member agrees to make any Nominee aware of the applicability of the terms of this Agreement to their enjoyment of any of the Rights.

5.2 During the Transfer Window, the Member may transfer permanently the Rights and obligations arising from this Agreement ("Permanent Transfer") to another person ("the Transferee") subject to:

  • (a) the Member informing the Company of the intention to make a Permanent Transfer;
  • (b) the Company receiving a completed Application Form containing all the required details of the Transferee; and
  • (c) the Company making no objection pursuant to clause 5.3 to the proposed Permanent Transfer.
  • The Member acknowledges that requests for Permanent Transfers may only be made during the Transfer Window. The Company will not accept any applications for a Permanent Transfer outside of the Transfer Window.

5.3 The Company may, acting reasonably, object to the proposed Permanent Transfer within one month of being informed by the Member of the intention to make a Permanent Transfer.

5.4 Upon the making of a Permanent Transfer pursuant to clause 5.2 the Transferee shall henceforth become entitled to enjoy the Rights of the Member and otherwise be subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, any liabilities arising before the making of a Permanent Transfer shall remain the transferring Member's responsibility. For the purposes of this Agreement, upon agreement by the Company to the Permanent Transfer, all references to the Member shall be construed as references to the Transferee.

5.5 The Company may at any time by giving notice to the Member transfer or assign its rights and/or interests (provided that such transfer or assignment of its rights and/or interests does not materially change the Member's rights and obligations under this Agreement) in respect of this Agreement and the Designated Areas, Designated Car Parking and/or Stadium to any other person, company or firm within the Company's Group, whereupon the obligations between the Member and the Company shall become obligations between the Member and the person, company or firm named in such notice and with effect of such notice the Company shall have no further obligations to the Member.

11. E-TICKETS


11.1. All references to "Season Tickets" in the Terms & Conditions of Entry apply equally to Season Tickets in E-Ticket form.

11.2. By accepting the Terms & Conditions of Entry, you confirm that you have a suitable Smart Device on which you can receive and display the Club's E-Tickets clearly. If you do not have a Smart Device you will need to contact the Club's Supporter Services team at supporter.services@brightonandhovealbion.com or 01273 668855 from 1 June to request a physical form Season Ticket and provide a photo ID to be loaded onto you ticketing account.

11.3. It is your responsibility to present your valid Season Ticket in E-Ticket form on your Smart Device at the Stadium. If you fail to do so and you do not have your valid physical form Season Ticket, your admission to the Stadium will be refused. You may also be asked to provide further proof of age and or a photo ID before entry to the Stadium is granted.

11.4. In the event that (a) the E-Ticket and/or your Smart Device is lost, damaged, or stolen, or your E-Ticket is corrupted, damaged or illegible in any way, or (b) if you arrive at the Stadium without a functioning Smart Device, we may be able to provide a duplicate or replacement Season Ticket or ticket in respect of that Match (as applicable). In such an event you should go to the ticket office where a duplicate Season Ticket or ticket in respect of that Match (as applicable) may be issued, provided that you are the Season Ticket Holder or the named recipient of a Shared Ticket, you are able to display an acceptable photo ID that matches the name the Club has against the applicable Season Ticket or Shared Ticket and that Season Ticket (or Shared Ticket if applicable) has not already been used to gain entry to the Stadium or the Season Ticket has otherwise been blocked for that Match due to being sold on the Official Ticket Exchange. The Club shall charge a £5 administration fee for the provision of a duplicate Season Ticket or ticket in respect of that Match (as applicable). The Club reserves the right to refuse to issue a duplicate Season Ticket or ticket in respect of that Match (as applicable) if you have previously requested a duplicate Season Ticket or ticket in respect of an individual Match (as applicable) on more than two previous occasions.

11.5. If multiple E-Tickets have been booked for more than 1 person and have been loaded on to 1 Smart Device, then all Season Ticket Holders must arrive at the Stadium together and scanning and entry will be conducted on your (the primary Season Ticket Holder's) Smart Device.

11.7. By purchasing an E-Ticket you agree to co-operate fully with Club staff and hand over your Smart Device for inspection if asked to do so.

11.8. Transferring or copying of E-Tickets to other devices not registered with your account or to third parties is strictly prohibited, as is any other behaviour deliberately carried out to de-fraud the Club. In the event of suspicion of such activity, we reserve the right to terminate your account and to pursue any losses or damages as a result through the civil or criminal courts as appropriate. We use various techniques to detect and identify fraudulent activity, and such activity will be reported to the relevant authorities. If you would like to share or exchange your Season Ticket in respect of individual Matches, this must be conducted in accordance with clause 13.

12. PRICING AND TICKET INFO


12.1 Whilst the Club tries to ensure that pricing and ticketing information on the Website is correct at all times, errors may occasionally occur. If the Club discovers an error in the price or nature of the ticket you have ordered, the Club will inform you as soon as reasonably practicable and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price/specification or cancelling it. If the Club is unable to contact you, it will unfortunately have to treat the order as cancelled. If the order is cancelled, the Club will of course provide you with a full refund (including any booking fees).

13. EXCHANGING AND SHARING TICKETS


13.1 You may only sell, share or transfer the Season Ticket or the right to attend a Match using the Season Ticket:

  • 13.1.1. through a sale or transfer in respect of an individual Match via (and in accordance with the terms and conditions of) the Official Ticket Exchange;
  • 13.1.2. if you have upgraded your Season Ticket by selecting (and paying for) Ticket Sharing, by sharing in respect of an individual Match via (and in accordance with clause 13.3) the Ticket Sharing Platform; or
  • 13.1.3. to any person with the express written consent of the Club given at the Club's absolute discretion, provided that such sale or transfer is in respect of an individual Match and in consideration of no payment or benefit in excess of the face value of a ticket to that Match and provided further that such transfer does not take place during the course of any business or for the purpose of facilitating any third party's business. Any such transfer in respect of an individual Match for which the Guest is of a different, higher value age band, will be charged an upgrade fee to enter the Ground. Any such upgrades will be charged at the price of the Match ticket minus the pro-rata value of the Season Ticket, rounded up to the nearest pound sterling.


13.2 Each such resale, sharing or transfer is hereby provided to be subject to the Terms and Conditions of Entry which will (save for any rights to transfer under this clause) apply to and bind the Guest as if he/she was the original purchaser of the Season Ticket (and where the Season Ticket is shared in accordance with this Clause 13 or sold or transferred to a person in accordance with clause 13.1.3 you must inform them of this).

Ticket Sharing

13.3 Season Ticket holders will be able to share Season Tickets as follows, and subject to these Terms and Conditions:

  • (A) Season Ticket Holders will have one free share during the Season;
  • (B) Sharing is available on a match-by-match basis for a set fee per match. Further details are available on the Website.


13.4. At any point throughout the Season, you may upgrade your Season Ticket to enable Ticket Sharing and be granted access to the Ticket Sharing Platform for a non-refundable administration fee of £20 (twenty pounds Sterling) per Season (the "Ticket Sharing Fee"). The Ticket Sharing Fee can be paid as a lump sum or spread across your direct debit. You may upgrade your Season Ticket to include Ticket Sharing at any time throughout the Season by visiting tickets.brightonandhovealbion.com and paying the Ticket Sharing Fee.

13.5. You must note that Season Tickets will not be automatically be moved over from match-by-match to seasonal. Further, Season Ticket holders will not receive a refund of match-by-match sharing fees in the event that the Season Ticket is upgraded. .

13.6. If you have chosen to upgrade your Season Ticket to include Ticket Sharing, you shall have access to the Club's Ticket Sharing Platform and you shall be allowed to share your Season Ticket in respect of individual Matches to a Guest who is a MyAlbion+ Member and who is connected within your "friends and family" designation on your ticketing account.

13.7. Ticket Sharing shall only be available for Matches eligible under the Season Ticket. For example, Ticket Sharing shall not be available for away matches or Cup Matches etc.

13.8. The Club reserves the right to limit the number of Matches a Season Ticket Holder may exercise Ticket Sharing for their Season Ticket (for example, 9 Matches) and to limit the number of Guests a Season Ticket may be shared with (for example, with 4 MyAlbion+ Members). However, for the 2022/2023 Season you are entitled to Ticket Share in respect of each Match to which your Season Ticket applies and there will be no limit on the number of different Guests to whom you can share with. For example, your Season Ticket may be shared up to nineteen (19) times with nineteen (19) different MyAlbion+ Members.

13.9. The Club reserves the right to remove access to Ticket Sharing for certain Matches at any time if it reasonably considers that it is necessary due to health & safety, Ground and Stadium security and/or Terms & Conditions of Entry compliance concerns. Such Matches will be decided at the Club's sole discretion. The Club will notify all Season Ticket Holders of any such suspension on the Club's website.

13.10. Where Ticket Sharing is permitted you must only share your Season Ticket in accordance with the following process. Ticket Sharing in violation of this process may lead to sanctions in accordance with the Club's sanctions tariff set out in the Club Charter (which can be found at https://www.brightonandhovealbion.com/club/club/club-charter).

  • 13.10.1. You may only share your Season Ticket on a Match-by-Match basis with a Guest who is known to you, and who is a supporter of the Club (you must not knowingly Ticket Share with a supporter of the Visiting Club). The Guest must be registered with the Club as an active MyAlbion+ Member and connected within your "friends and family" designation on your ticketing account.
  • 13.10.2. You cannot share your Season Ticket with a Guest who has a current Stadium ban or is in arrears with the Club.
  • 13.10.3. You may only share your Season Ticket with an active MyAlbion+ Member in the same price band or cheaper (for example, an adult Season Ticket may be shared with any MyAlbion+ Member, whereas a 65+ or U21 Season Ticket may only be shared with a MyAlbion+ Member with an 65+ or U10/U18/U21 membership respectively) or within the same category of Season Ticket (for example, a Season Ticket Holder with wheelchair access shall only be entitled to share the Season Ticket with a MyAlbion+ Member who requires wheelchair access). If you are a Season Ticket Holder who is a Disabled Supporter and you wish to Ticket Share with an individual who is not a Disabled Supporter, you should call the Club's Supporter Services team on 01273 668855 and the Club will do its best to facilitate this if possible.
  • 13.10.4. Personal Assistant Season Tickets are not entitled to upgrade and use Ticket Sharing.
  • 13.10.5. For each Shared Match, your Season Ticket for such Shared Match will be blocked (you will not be able to attend the Shared Match with your Season Ticket) and an individual print-at-home ticket in respect of that Shared Match shall be sent to the designated Guest via email or delivered as an E-Ticket to the Guest's Smart Device (the "Shared Ticket"). It is the responsibility of your Guest to ensure their email address and contact details are up-to-date on their ticketing account.
  • 13.10.6. Your Season Ticket will be available for use by you for the next Match, unless you have chosen to share your Season Ticket with another Guest.


13.11 A Season Ticket shared in accordance with the Ticket Sharing process set out in this clause 13 may not be sold, shared or transferred to any other third party under any circumstance. Accordingly, each Guest must ensure they bring photo ID with them to the Shared Match which must match the name on their Shared Ticket. The Club reserves the right to conduct random ID checks in accordance with these Season Ticket Terms and Conditions.

13.12 You, as the Season Ticket Holder, will be held responsible and liable for the behaviour of your Guest. If the Guest breaches the Terms & Conditions of Entry, both you and the Guest shall be held liable for such breach in accordance with these Season Ticket Terms and Conditions and any other applicable terms and you and your Guest will be sanctioned in accordance with the Club's sanctions tariff set out in the Club Charter (which can be found at https://www.brightonandhovealbion.com/club/club/club-charter).

14. CHANGES, REFUNDS ETC


14.1. No guarantees are given by the Club that a Match will take place at a particular time or on a particular date or at a particular spectator capacity. The Club reserves the right, without notice and liability save as expressly provided otherwise in these Terms and Conditions, to reschedule any Match or, if necessary, play the Match out of view of the public or reduce the spectator capacity for the Match. In the event that a Match is rescheduled, your Season Ticket will enable you to attend the re-arranged Match if it is one of the 19 Matches referred to in clause 14.2, unless the Match is required to be played out of view of the public or the spectator capacity is reduced and you are not offered the right to attend the match (in which case the provisions of clause 14.3 apply).

14.2. In the event of postponement or abandonment in full of the Match (or if the Match has, for any reason, to be played behind closed doors or with partial capacities only and you are not permitted to attend), you will be entitled to receive a credit equal to the value of your Season Ticket in respect of that Individual Match, which can either be used towards the renewal of your Season Ticket for the following season or claimed as a refund at the end of the season. For these purposes, the total cost of your Season Ticket shall be divided by 19 (if the Club is participating in the Premier League) or 23 (if the Club is participating in the English Football League) to give a per Match value.

14.3. In respect of:

  • (A) any Behind Closed Doors Matches; and/or
  • (B) any Reduced Capacity Matches which you are not offered the right to attend (including, without limitation, in circumstances where you are allocated a General Admission ticket(s) for that Match but the spectator capacity for that match is subsequently reduced and your ticket(s) is cancelled by the Club), the Club shall refund you the full price of the relevant General Admission ticket, as stated in the pricing schedule notified to you by the Club and/or published on the Website, and such refund shall be credited against your membership account and may be withdrawn by you periodically during such cashback windows as notified by the Club or (if applicable), at your discretion, setoff against any renewal of your Season Ticket(s).


14.4. In the event that you are allocated General Admission ticket(s) in a Ballot for a Reduced Capacity Match which are in a lower-priced Seat Category than your Season Ticket(s), the Club shall refund you the difference between the price of your Season Ticket(s) for the relevant category of Match and the price of the relevant General Admission ticket(s) allocated to you in such Ballot, as stated in the pricing schedule notified to you by the Club and/or published on the Website, and such refund shall be credited against your membership account and may be withdrawn by you periodically during such cashback windows as notified by the Club or (if applicable), at your discretion, set-off against any renewal of your Season Ticket(s).

14.8. The cancellation rights granted to consumers pursuant to The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 do not apply to Season Ticket purchases. Consequently, purchasers of Season Tickets will not be able to cancel their Season Ticket purchases except in accordance with these Season Ticket Terms and Conditions or as otherwise permitted by English Law.

14.9. With the exception of the circumstances set out in clause 14.1 and the limited conditions for the auto-renewed direct debit Season Tickets (see Direct Debit Terms & Conditions), the Club does not offer refunds on Season Tickets. For the avoidance of doubt, the final decision belongs to the Head of Ticketing & Supporter Services.

14.10. The Club will have no further liability whatsoever in relation to any alteration of the time or date of any Match including postponement or abandonment, for any losses, liabilities, costs and expenses incurred by you, including any indirect or consequential loss or damage, loss of enjoyment or travel/accommodation costs.

The Club reserves the right to require photographic proof of identity and to withdraw this duplicate facility for any particular Match or Matches without notice.

15.3. The Club is not responsible for any Season Ticket which is lost, stolen, defaced, damaged, or destroyed. If the Season Ticket is lost, stolen, defaced, damaged, or destroyed, the Club may, subject to these Terms and Conditions, and in its discretion, issue a replacement Season Ticket to you, upon payment by you of a non-refundable fee of £15.00 (this charge also applies for seat moves where a new Season Ticket is issued).

Please note that it is your responsibility to contact the Club and/or visit the Club's match day ticket office on a match day in the event that you do not have access to your Season Ticket(s) for that match. In making its decision to issue a replacement Season Ticket, the Club shall be entitled to call for all reasonable evidence of the need for a replacement Season Ticket, for example but not limited to a police crime reference number in the event that a Season Ticket or Smart Device is stolen, or a copy of the damaged Season Ticket.

15.5. Only one duplicate Season Ticket will be issued to you per season and you will be required to sign a document confirming that the original Season Ticket is damaged, lost, stolen or destroyed. The Club reserves the right to require proof of identity and/or withdraw the duplicate ticket facility for any particular Match or Matches without notice if the Club reasonably believes the matter has been falsely represented or stated to the Club.

Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club (the "Club") is committed to as far as possible ensuring the health and safety of Supporters, and to providing as safe and suitable an environment as possible during this COVID-19 pandemic.

By purchasing a Match ticket, you are agreeing to comply with this COVID-19 Spectator Code of Conduct (this "Code of Conduct"). By not complying you are jeopardising public health and the health of fellow Supporters and Club staff as well as jeopardising the reputation of the Club and Visiting Club and the sport of football. Please therefore take the time to read and fully understand this Code of Conduct and what is expected of you.

That being said, it is impossible for the Club to completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19. Therefore, if you are not willing to comply with this Code of Conduct or, based on your own health status and susceptibility to infection and that of those in your family and/or household, you feel uncomfortable with the risk, you should not attend a Match.

ANY BREACH OF THIS COVID-19 SPECTATOR CODE OF CONDUCT MAY RESULT IN YOU BEING DENIED ENTRY AND/OR REMOVED FROM THE STADIUM AND HAVING YOUR SEASON TICKET OR 1901 CLUB MEMBERSHIP SUSPENDED OR WITHDRAWN AND/OR MAY RESULT IN A SIGNIFICANT BAN FROM ATTENDING FUTURE MATCHES AT THE STADIUM.

YOU MUST THEREFORE READ AND FOLLOW THIS CODE OF CONDUCT AT ALL TIMES. IF YOU ARE ATTENDING THE MATCH AS PART OF A GROUP AND/OR HAVE PURCHASED A TICKET ON BEHALF OF OTHERS, PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY HAVE ALSO READ AND UNDERSTOOD THIS CODE OF CONDUCT.

You must not attend a Match if:

(a) you, or anyone else you are attending with, have tested positive for COVID-19 or have any COVID-19 symptoms and have been asked to self-isolate;

(b) any other COVID-19 restrictions affect you to the extent that you cannot or should not attend the Match.

1. You are responsible for your own health. Act in ways that protect your health and the health of others and avoid acting in a way that might risk the health of fellow Supporters and/or Club staff. Know this Code of Conduct and all applicable Government guidance and be respectful and understanding to others.

2. If you engage in any conduct that is intended to transmit the COVID-19 virus to another person or any conduct that can be reasonably construed to be intending to transmit the COVID-19 virus to another person, you will be ejected from the Stadium, the Police will be contacted and you can expect to receive a lifetime ban from the Stadium in accordance with the Club's sanctions tariff (found in the Club Charter) on the Club's website.
