Should the Club be unable to find an available seat based on the member preference, all attempts will be made to contact the member to discuss a suitable alternative.

Should a reserved seat member be unable to attend a match, they may release that member’s seat for sale to the general public. If the seat is sold, the member will receive a credit towards their 2016 membership but otherwise the member will not receive that credit.  The credit amount is based on the ticket category of the membership and the location of the seat.
