Everton Season Ticket Members will be able to resell tickets for games they cannot attend during the 2021/22 season when the Club launches its own ticket resale platform next month.
The facility has been created to assist Season Ticket Members if they are unable to attend matches, helping to ensure they are not out of pocket and to guarantee no seat is unnecessarily left empty at Goodison Park. The Club-created system will replace the third-party resale platform, StubHub, which was utilised by fans and provided by the former official partner between 2012 and 2020.
From early August (date TBC), Season Ticket Members will have the option to list their seats for any fixture they are unable to attend in the upcoming Premier League campaign, with fans able to manage the process themselves from their online ticketing account.
Season Ticket Members will receive a pro-rata credit on their ticketing account for each ticket sold via the platform, with tickets then listed for sale on the website at the face value for the given fixture. Official Members for the 2021/22 season will have priority windows ahead of each fixture to purchase tickets on the platform.
Credit earned by Season Ticket Members who utilise the system can be used for future ticket and Season Ticket purchases.
The new platform will give Season Ticket Members the flexibility to remove the ticket from sale if their plans or circumstances change. If a ticket is still unsold on the day of the game, the supporter will receive a reminder via text or email that their ticket is still valid if they wish to attend the fixture.
At launch, only adult tickets will be available for purchase on the re-sale platform. Season Ticket Members with concession Season Tickets can still list their tickets for sale, but anyone wishing to purchase tickets will only be able to purchase as an adult. The functionality for purchasing concession tickets is expected to be introduced in the autumn/winter months of the 2021/22 season.
Revenue generated by the platform will be donated to Everton in the Community to enable the Club’s official charity to extend and enhance its life-changing and life-saving work across Merseyside and beyond.
The new service has been developed with vital input from the Club’s Fans’ Forum. The platform will provide a permanent solution for ticket resale at Goodison Park, with the Club continuing to work alongside fan groups to gather feedback in order to continue to develop and enhance the platform over the course of the season.
