Season ticket sales approaching 900!

Season ticket sales approaching 900!

Play a part in our return to football in front of fans!

 

Our season ticket sales have now passed the 800 mark, but there is still time to buy yours before the league season kicks off on 14th August – especially as there will be no crowd restrictions because of Covid at Blackwell Meadows. Very soon, we will all be together again, so why not buy a season ticket and be a real part of our return to football in front of fans?  It will be fantastic – and typical of the generosity of Darlo fans – to reach sales of 1,000 by the start of the season.

Manager Alun Armstrong is steadily building his squad, and to date he has signed eight exciting new players: Tommy Taylor, Lucas Martin, Lexus Beeden, Joey Hope, George Smith, Kallum Griffiths, Junior Mondal and Alex Purver. You can read about them on our website.

It’s very easy to purchase a season ticket online, simply go to yourclub.darlingtonfc.co.uk and log into your account. If you haven't got an account please create one, it’s simple to do. Once in your account, click 'Fan Services' and choose '21/22 Season Tickets'.

Tickets are now being sold on a first come, first served basis.

We have three ways that you can buy a season ticket:

  • A single payment by credit / debit card, cheque or via BACS transfer
  • 3 monthly instalments via credit / debit card
  • Pay monthly – a rolling monthly subscription. This is proving to be a popular option.

All season ticket holders and 500 Club members should have received a personalised email confirming their current ticket status for the coming season. If you haven’t received an email first please check your spam / promotional email folders and drop us an email to seasontickets@darlingtonfc.org if you have any questions.

 

Here are some good reasons for being a season ticket holder:

  • The age range for young adults has been expanded to 24, which means that on a monthly basis, the cost of a season ticket is from £16 per month
  • Under 11s are free as long as they’re accompanied by an adult
  • The cost of season tickets for two adults and two children is from £28 per month
  • There are good savings on matchday prices
  • You have priority for FA Cup/Trophy ties and away tickets
  • You have guaranteed entry to matches in case social capacity restrictions return (which, of course, we hope they don’t!)

So, go to yourclub.darlingtonfc.co.uk , create an account, and buy your season ticket! Play a real part in our return in front of fans!

Seated Season Ticket: Your Reserved Seat – the details

Until June 22nd, all current seated season ticket holders had their existing seats reserved. Now that the date has passed, the seat is now available for anyone to buy or move to if they’ve already purchased a season ticket and want to swap the seat they were allocated.

If you would like to move seats or are purchasing a seated season ticket for the first time we will do our best to accommodate your preferences if you have a specific row/block you want to be seated in or a family/friendship group you’d like to sit with. Please contact us by email seasontickets@darlingtonfc.org.

What is a Pay Monthly season ticket?

For a rolling monthly subscription you can become a season ticket holder just like other services you can subscribe to and pay for on a monthly basis. Full details are available on our pay monthly page including full terms and conditions.

Do I have to purchase an Adult/Concession Season Ticket in order to obtain an U11 Season Ticket?

Yes – It is Darlington Football Club’s Policy that all junior supporters under 11 are accompanied to the game by an adult/senior/concession.

Do I need to provide proof of my date of birth when applying for a concessionary Season Ticket?

All season ticket purchases for concession tickets may be subject to age verification checks. We hope to launch an online process for this in the close season.

I am a 500 Club member; Do I need to complete a season ticket application form?

Please check the expiry date of your 500 Club ticket on your YourClub dashboard. We have also sent personalised emails to all season ticket and 500 Club holders with your up to date ticket information – if you have not received an e mail then please contact us.

What proof do I need to provide for a supporter who has a disability?

Darlington Football Club reserves the rights to request proof of disability prior to issuing a ticket or membership. Such proof should include photographic evidence of the person applying for a season ticket and also a letter from the DLA confirming receipt of middle or higher rate Disability Living Allowance.

A receipt of an orange/blue badge will not be considered sufficient proof of disability.

If a Carer is required, the Club will provide a complimentary ticket on each matchday for the carer in attendance.

Car Parking

For Season 2021/22 you will be able to park your car at Blackwell Meadows.

We will be selling Car Parking season passes soon and will notify all season ticket holders when passes go on sale.

Those car park holders who rolled over their tickets from the 20/21 season will be contacted ahead of the sales period.

Free blue badge disabled car parking is available at Blackwell Meadows on matchdays. You are advised to apply for a blue badge car park season pass if you qualify for one and are also a season ticket holder.
