The 2015/16 season saw the launch of a new loyalty scheme for Preston North End supporters.
This means that for big derby matches or other away games where demand for tickets is likely to exceed the allocation, those supporters who attend the most games will have the best chance of getting tickets if they want them.
The scheme gives most benefit to season ticket holders, which everyone who purchases one for the 2015/16 season being allocated 260 loyalty points.
Season ticket holders who attend home friendlies, cup matches or away games will also receive an additional ten points for every one of those games they attend.
For supporters who do not wish to purchase a season ticket, for every home or away league game, cup or home friendly they attend, you will also receive ten loyalty points per match.
In addition, on a matchday, the Club will no longer be offering a quick sell (usually available in the final hour before kick-off) so that all ticket sales are allocated to individual supporters, allowing fans the best possible opportunity to take full advantage of the new scheme.
Supporters purchasing away match tickets on the day at away grounds will not be eligible for loyalty points, all tickets must be bought in advance from Deepdale.
For fans already registered on the database, the information we hold needs to be up to date, so fans purchasing match tickets and season tickets will be asked to provide the following information, as will new registrations:
• Full name
• Contact telephone number
• Email address
Once fully registered supporters will be able to supply their member number when buying to speed up transaction time in the future.
The following FAQs have been put together to explain the process in detail:

A: Each time you purchase a home or away ticket at MyPNE.Com, by phone or at the PNE ticket office, you will receive loyalty points.

If the customer is not on the database, to set up an account we will require the full name, address, date of birth and contact details of the new customer and a unique membership number will be assigned to that account. All supporters on the PNE database have a unique membership number. If you would like to be informed of your membership number please contact the commercial department on 01772 693311/04. Points cannot be added retrospectively, they must be done at the time of purchase.
