I cannot access accessible price types online. What should i do?
If you have registered your eligibility with the Club and you are unable to access the accessible price-types (Wheelchair User, Personal Assistant) please contact the ticketing team who will update your account with the most recent accessible key.
Disabled supporters can choose to have a personal assistant account created for them in their name or nominate an account holder as their personal assistant.
Abuse of Personal Assistant account
In instances where an account holder has been nominated as a personal assistant the club reserves the right to remove points from the account holder if the personal assistant system is being abused.
Does personal assistant requires to have cherries points?
When booking tickets a nominated personal assistant does not require Cherries Points in order to book their ticket as long as they are attending in their capacity as a personal assistant.
Can personal assistant attend games without a disabled supporter?
If a disabled supporter can not attend games or chooses to stop attending, the personal assistant will retain the points that they have accrued whilst attending as a personal assistant.
Attending the game as personal assistant
If you are issued a personal assistant ticket, your ticket must be scanned for entry at the same time as the ticket for the disabled supporter. The personal assistant ticket is issued to assist the disabled supporter and therefore the personal assistant should be with the disabled supporter on entry to the stadium.
