I have tried to forward a ticket to a friend or family member, but the system won’t allow me to, why is this?

There are 3 reasons:

  • If the supporter you are trying to forward your ticket to already has a ticket for the match, they cannot be forwarded another one.
  • If the ticket has already been forwarded 3 times, it will not be available to forward on again, and you must use the Ticket Exchange if you are unable to attend the game.
  • If the supporter you are trying to forward your ticket to has not downloaded their Members NFC Pass or a General Admission NFC Pass to their smartphone.
