Fans are back at St Mary’s again for Saturday’s Premier League visit of Manchester City, with the club selecting eligible Season Ticket holders to attend the game.
Following consultation with fan groups, the club held a ballot to decide which supporters will attend Saturday’s match and have communicated directly with those fans that were successful.
Season Ticket holders that have not yet been selected to attend a behind closed doors match at St Mary’s will be eligible for the ballot for Southampton’s next home game against West Ham United on Tuesday 29th December.
They shall receive a pro rata refund for Saturday’s clash with Manchester City, along with Season Ticket holders that confirmed to the club that they do not wish to be considered for selection.
See below for more information to find out whether you were successful in the ballot, how you can access your ticket, and changes you can expect to the matchday experience at St Mary’s.
Please note that fans who live in areas that have been placed in tier 3 of the government’s local restriction tier system will not be able to attend the match and will be due a pro rata refund.
Have I been successful in the ticket ballot?
Those Season Ticket holders that were selected to attend the match against Manchester City have been contacted at the email address listed on their ticketing account. If you haven’t received an email, please make sure to check your spam folder or promotions folder in Gmail.
If fans have elected to be part of a social bubble, the lead booker will receive the tickets for the whole bubble on their ticketing account.
The club will be calling all fans that were successful in the ballot by phone later this week if they have not opened the email that was sent to them.
Please note that for those fans that have been placed in a priority group, based on being long-standing Season Ticket holders that have attended the majority of matches in recent seasons, if you elected to be in a social bubble with other supporters who are in the same priority group as you, you will be seated together for each match.
However, if you are in a social bubble with other eligible Season Ticket holders who do not fall within the same priority group as you, they will enter the ballot. When they are successful in the ballot you shall be grouped together to ensure you can enjoy the match as a group. When they are not successful, you will receive your ticket separately.
How do I download my ticket?
All fans attending Saturday’s match have been emailed an e-ticket that can either be downloaded to your mobile device or printed at home – these tickets must be presented on arrival at the stadium along with photo ID.
