BURTON Albion supporters are reminded not to buy tickets for away fans in the home ends of the Pirelli Stadium.
Ahead of our Carabao Cup Fourth Round fixture against Nottingham Forest, the club would like to reemphasise that no Brewers supporters living locally should be attempting to purchase tickets on behalf of away fans.
Fans may need a purchase history with Burton Albion to purchase for particular fixtures to ensure they are genuine Brewers supporters.
To prevent away fans from buying tickets in the home ends, the club operates postcode checks and restrictions, meaning anyone with an address in the vicinity of the visiting club cannot purchase home tickets.
Any new supporters with an unrestricted postcode looking to order tickets must collect their tickets from the Pirelli Stadium, along with proof of address, as the postage option is not available to them.
When collecting tickets, fans will be asked to provide proof of identity WITH ADDRESS, and anyone unable to provide this when they come to collect will not be given the tickets they have ordered.
Ticket touting is an offence that has in the past led to three-year football banning orders (which can lead to subsequent passport restrictions for international games) from the police, or club-designated bans in many cases.
As per our terms and conditions on the back of our matchday tickets, as well of those of the relevant authorities, tickets remain the property of the club and cannot be sold on.
We thank Brewers supporters for your cooperation in this matter.
