1.4 The Auto Cup Scheme is only available for all Domestic Cup Matches and European Cup Matches played by LFC at the Ground during the Season, except for where the final of any European Cup Competition or the League Cup, or the semi-final or final of FA Cup is played at the Ground in which case such matches will not be applicable to the relevant Auto Cup Scheme. Further, for the avoidance of doubt, entry into the Auto Cup Scheme does not grant any Eligible Member rights to purchase tickets for any European Cup Matches or Domestic Cup Matches played away from the Ground.
1.5 Subject to clause 1.7 below, Eligible Members of the European Cup Auto Cup Scheme will remain in the scheme for the duration of all applicable European Cup Competition(s) in which they are enrolled provided that such Eligible Member has purchased tickets for all the relevant European Cup Matches throughout the Season.
1.6 Subject to clause 1.7 below, Eligible Members of a Domestic Cup Auto Cup Scheme will remain in the scheme for the duration of the applicable Domestic Cup competition in which they have enrolled, provided the Eligible Member has purchased tickets for all of the applicable Domestic Cup Matches throughout the Season. For the avoidance of doubt, the applicable matches are dependant on which schemes such member is enrolled in – for example a member enrolled in the FA Cup Auto Cup Scheme shall be required to purchase tickets for matches in the FA Cup throughout the course of the Season to maintain their eligibility for the FA Cup Auto Cup Scheme, but shall not be required to purchase tickets for League Cup matches in order to maintain the eligibility for the FA Cup Auto Cup Scheme.
1.7 Where an Eligible Member fails to purchase a ticket to a Domestic Cup Match or European Cup Match (where relevant) for any reason, which includes without limitation payment failure, the Eligible Member will be automatically removed from the relevant Auto Cup Scheme for such Season.
1.8 Eligible Members will be invited to select their preferred seat from those made available by LFC for the matches in the applicable cup competition they have enrolled into the Auto Cup Scheme for. Eligible Members who participate in an Auto Cup Scheme and purchase tickets for a European Cup Match and/or Domestic Cup Match (as applicable) will have their NFC season ticket or NFC member card automatically activated in order to attend the applicable match at the Ground. Once you have enrolled in an Auto Cup Scheme, subject to clause 1.7, you will remain in that scheme for as long as the Club is involved in the applicable competition(s) for that scheme during the Season.
1.9 In the event that the seat allocated to you via the Auto Cup Scheme is subsequently required by the organising body or otherwise by the Club, we reserve the right to allocate you an alternative seat.

1.11 Where possible the Club will endeavour to allow a short time period for Eligible Members whose payments fail to purchase a ticket for an applicable European Cup Match or Domestic Cup Match - the Club will notify you in this instance and where you purchase a ticket for the relevant match you will retain your place within the applicable Auto Cup Scheme. Where it is not possibly to notify you directly, details will be published on the Club’s website - https://www.liverpoolfc.com/tickets/auto-cup-scheme-information
1.12 Eligible Members are solely responsible for ensuring that they make any changes relating to their credit/debit card details, mobile number and email address during the course of the Season.

1.13 It is the responsibility of the Eligible Member to check before travelling to the Ground to attend a European Cup Match and/or Domestic Cup Match that their payment has been successful and they have a ticket purchased. This can be checked by visiting https://ticketing.liverpoolfc.com/CrmDetails.aspx#eSRO_Crm_PersonalDetails and logging into the ‘my account’ section.
1.14 Withdrawal from an Auto Cup Scheme is subject to a written request being submitted to the Club and will take effect prior to the commencement of the sale of the tickets to any relevant Domestic Cup or European Cup Match after the receipt of such request.
