Frequently Asked Questions
2018-19 season card FAQs
When is the deadline to renew my season card?
If you're an existing season card holder, then you have an exclusive window until Tuesday 13th March to renew your season card at the frozen ticket prices. From Wednesday 14th March to Monday 30th April, existing and non-existing season card holders will then have the chance to purchase at the frozen ticket prices. The final window, which will run from Monday 7th May until the start of the 2018-19 campaign, will allow all fans to purchase at the revised ticket prices.
What happens if I don't renew during the initial window?
The exclusive window between Monday 26th February and Tuesday 13th March will allow existing season card holders the opportunity to renew their current seat at the frozen ticket prices. If they fail to renew during the second window (Wednesday 14th March to Monday 30th April) then the price of their ticket will increase.
How do I renew?
Fans can renew their season card by:
- The quickest and easiest way to renew your season card is online at tickets.nottinghamforest.co.uk
- Visiting the ticket office in-person during standard opening hours
- Calling the ticket office on 0115 982 4388 during standard opening hours
Will I be able to sit in the same seat as this season?
Yes. The windows between Monday 26th February and Monday 30th April will allow existing season card holders the opportunity to renew their current seat at the frozen ticket prices.
A friend wants to join me next season, can they sit next to me?
During the initial sales window (Monday 26th February and Tuesday 13th March) only existing season card holders will be able to secure their seat. From Wednesday 14th March, non-existing season card holders will also be able to purchase seats.
Which areas of the ground are being reduced in price?
Season card prices have been reduced in four areas of the ground. Blocks Q and T of the Brian Clough Lower and Blocks G and P of the Brian Clough Upper. This has been done to bring these areas into line with similar seats around the ground.
Are there any restrictions as to where my child can sit in the ground?
The club have lifted a number of age restrictions around the ground meaning that those aged 12 and over can now sit in the Lower Bridgford and all areas of the Peter Taylor Stand, including A Block. Those aged under 12 are still prohibited for sitting in these areas, however. Other than that, children are allowed to sit anywhere in the ground.
Last season my child's season card was free but this season it's £10, how is that a reduction?
The club have previously given children a free season card when purchasing a £25 Junior Reds membership, so effectively this is being reduced to just £10 for the 2018-19 season. The club have taken the decision to re-evaluate the Junior Reds membership but all 4-11-year-olds that purchase a season card will be given exclusive access to special events at The City Ground, including opportunities to meet the players.
How many children can I bring with me?
The club recommends a ratio of a minimum of one adult for every four children aged 4-11.
How does the Zebra Finance offer work?
As an actual illustration, an adult season card costing £330 purchased in the first month of ticketing sales is repayable by a first monthly instalment of £50.60 (including a £23.10 administration charge) followed by 11 monthly instalments of £27.50 – the total amount repayable is £353.10. APR of this illustration is 14.3%. Administration charge of 7% applies to all season cards.
