Why do prices vary?
Availability and prices of tickets are driven by market demand; they are not determined by 1st4FootballTickets. All the tickets are listed and priced by approved ticket specialists. Each ticket specialist competes with others to provide you a large selection of tickets. Face value refers to the price printed on the "face" of the ticket or the original purchase price in the primary market. The face value of a ticket can differ from the selling price, because the tickets listed on 1st4FootballTickets are sold by the sellers at "market value". If the event is in high demand, the selling price is generally much higher than the face value on the ticket and vice versa.
Are tickets guaranteed?
We work with a small network of ticket specialists to ensure reliable service. 1st4footballtickets.com provides a secure online marketplace only and is not the seller of, and does not take responsibility for, any tickets sold through the online marketplace. We do however offer you a 150% money back guarantee: In the highly unlikely case you do not receive tickets for the seats you ordered in time for the match, we will refund 100% of your money back, plus we will offer you a credit worth 50% of your original purchase towards another match.
Are tickets for home/away supporters?
All tickets listed for an event are for the home team sections unless otherwise specifically stated. Therefore if tickets are simply listed as "Behind the Goal" or "Longside" they will be for home team supporters. Many times the sellers can also offer tickets for the visiting team section but the tickets will be describes as such, For Example: Arsenal v Liverpool - the tickets for the visiting team will say "Visitors Section", "Liverpool Section" or "Away Seats".
* Please note, the above specifications do not apply to matches that are played at a Neutral Venue/Stadium (such as Champions League Final, Europa League Final, FA Cup Final, League Cup Final or World Cup events). In these cases the sellers usually state to which end their allocations belong. If there is no indication please assume the seats could be allocated in either end of the ground.
Will our tickets be seated together?
Tickets are issued and allocated in maximum groupings of 4-together. The sellers can guarantee that nobody will sit alone so if you buy 3 tickets or less they will always be together. If you buy 4 or more tickets the sellers will try to get them all together but they may be split into groupings of 2+2 / 2+3 / 4+2 / etc. If you need all tickets to be sat together please contact our customer service hotline and a representative will assist you to find the tickets you need.
What is the exact seat location of the tickets listed?
The exact location of seats oftentimes cannot be provided at the time of booking as ticket allocations are not confirmed to our suppliers in advance. For this reason you may only find generic descriptions of seat locations (Behind the Goal, Longside, Away Section). Please assume that the seat location may be the worst allocated within a generic description, some listings have more information regarding the allocations but the price tends to be higher. If you are unsure about the location of the seats based on the descriptions, please see the venue maps or contact our customer service team for clarification.
When will I receive my tickets?
Tickets for football events are generally released by the clubs only the week leading up to the match. The seller must try to get all tickets dispatched 3-5 days prior to the event and you are advised by email when they are sent. Once receiving notification of dispatch you can expect them the following day for UK deliveries or within 1-3 days for International deliveries. Sometimes tickets can be delivered on the day of the event and/or the seller will require you to collect the tickets locally. If you are concerned that this will not give you enough time to reach the event please contact us so we can arrange an alternative delivery method. If you are travelling from abroad to see a football match we encourage you to provide a local delivery address or hotel in the match country/city.

How are tickets delivered?
All tickets are sent using secure shipment methods, depending on your location. If the tickets are sent within the UK for a UK event, they will be dispatched via Special Next Day Delivery / Bike Courier / Hand Delivery or by Private Courier and will require a signature.

If they are being delivered to your hotel in Italy / Spain / Germany / Netherlands or Portugal sellers may use courier companies and/or private couriers.
