Villa tickets ballot now live

fans Villa

Albion can confirm plans for the safe return of fans to The Hawthorns should the club receive the go-ahead to do so. 

Home games will continue to be played behind closed doors while Sandwell remains in Tier 3 - but 2,000 supporters could return if the borough is placed in Tier 2. 

The next UK Government review of regional restrictions is expected to be announced later this week, just days before the local derby against Aston Villa at The Hawthorns on Sunday, December 20 (ko 7.15pm). 

In order to give fans a fair opportunity to apply – and for the club to process those applications - a ballot for the Villa fixture will open at 1pm on Monday, December 14, closing 24 hours later at 1pm on Tuesday, December 15. 

Season-ticket holders from both the 2019/20 and 2020/21 campaigns are eligible to enter the ballot for Villa tickets. For additional information on entering the ballot, click here.

Owing to Premier League and Government guidelines supporters are not permitted to travel from a Tier 3 area in order to attend a game.

Successful applicants, who will be selected at random, will be notified by email should a change in restrictions permit fans to attend the game and a deadline by which tickets must be purchased online will be implemented to ensure all 2,000 tickets are taken.

Supporters who have not already done so are urged to register for a free My Albion account, which must be linked to their existing ticketing account in order to apply for, and purchase, matchday tickets. 

Each ballot entry can include a maximum of six season-ticket holders which must all be listed as the applicant’s friends and family. Successful applicants must then select and purchase seats for all supporters listed as their friends and family.

Fans who apply for tickets will be asked to agree to a new code of conduct which encourages respectful behaviour and social distancing, in addition to the practical rules that must be followed to ensure a safe environment for all who visit The Hawthorns. 

Albion have published a return of fans section page on the club’s official website which contains a range of information detailing every aspect of what a visit to The Hawthorns might look like.

The Baggies will make every effort to ensure all supporters are treated fairly. Season-ticket holders who are unsuccessful in the first ballot will receive priority in the next until all fans have had the opportunity to attend a game.
