Ticket details for Preston North End’s trip to Blackpool next month can now be confirmed.
PNE face Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday 23rd October, with a 3pm kick-off, and the club have been given an allocation of 2,200 tickets for this fixture, with no further tickets available. Despite the club’s repeated efforts to see the allocation increased for our supporters, ultimately the decision was made by Blackpool’s Ground Safety Officer and the Police for health and safety reasons.
Due to the high demand for tickets for this fixture, the tickets will initially go on sale to Ambassadors*, as per our legal obligation to give them priority for away tickets, and this priority period will run from 9am on Thursday 30th September to 5pm on Saturday 2nd October.
Please note that Ambassadors can only purchase one ticket which must be for personal use, these are non-transferrable and must therefore be purchased for the same age category as your season card. There will be no upgrades or regrades available for this fixture for those wishing to change age categories.
Any remaining tickets will then go on sale at 9am on Monday 4th October on a points priority basis, with details of how many points are required to purchase in this period to be announced on Sunday 3rd October, once the club has clarity on how many tickets are remaining following the Ambassador sales period.
Should tickets still be available after this date, further communication will be made with regards to the next priority period.
*For clarification, Ambassadors are supporters who have held a season card continuously from the 2012/13 season onwards, excluding the 2020/21 season when the status was carried over due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Supporters who are unsure whether they are an Ambassador or not can check through their purchase history under the 'My Account' drop down menu on MyPNE.Com.
How To Buy
Tickets will be available online at www.mypne.com or in person from the ticket office, with no sales over the phone for this fixture. The club would advise all supporters to purchase online where possible to avoid queues at the ticket office.
