What Are The Rules And Regulations?

  • Each member is entitled to one account only. Multiple accounts will be blocked and removed.
  • The registered member must be in attendance at an event but they may use the additional tickets to take friends and family along as their guests. 
  • To enable all members to have a chance of being able to apply for and attend events, you must not book in excess of 15 first come, first serve events per year and understand that we will close your account if you do so. 
  • If tickets are available for collection from the venue you will be required to present your MoD 90 (Service ID) or valid form of ID if you have been medically discharged at the box office to receive your tickets.
  • If your tickets have been sent to you by post, please expect random ID checks at the event.
  • Any booking made using an open source anonymous service email address will be cancelled and the account will be suspended.
  • All first come, first serve events will require a non-refundable £5 booking fee.
  • Please ensure you read all the information provided on confirmation emails.
  • It is a criminal offence to tout tickets obtained through TFT. The Ministry of Defence and the Police will be notified if a member is caught doing so. This offence is taken very seriously and Tickets For Troops will request the strongest repercussions possible.
  • Failure to attend an event without giving the Tickets For Troops team sufficient notice will result in your account being suspended.
  • Members are not permitted to pass tickets on, even for no monetary gain. 
  • To prevent fraud and protect Tickets For Troops, we may carry out checks and/or you may be asked to provide additional information (such as proof of eligibility to the charity) after your booking so we can verify your tickets. If we suspect fraud we may cancel any order or tickets and report this to Action Fraud, the military police and your Chain of Command.
  • In most cases, Tickets For Troops members and their guests will be appreciative towards the Tickets For Troops team and their donors but a minority are abusive and aggressive over the phone and via email. Please note this is not tolerated by Tickets For Troops and any behaviour like this will jeopardise an individuals usage of the charity and their membership may be terminated."

Football Tickets

Due to the regulations set out by the Football Association and the popularity of the game, further booking rules apply to the booking of football tickets. 

The Football Association states that: "All clubs are issued with a standard set of Ground Regulations. These posters are displayed at the entrances to and inside the stadium. The Ground Regulations make it clear that entrance to the stadium is subject to acceptance by the visitor of these Ground Regulations. The Regulations specify the list of articles that cannot be brought into the stadium and they give the stewards the right to search any or all spectators and to remove offenders from the stadium. 

The following behaviours are expressly forbidden: 

  • the throwing of any object unauthorised entry onto the playing area 
  • the use of threatening behaviour or racist, homophobic or foul and abusive language
  • persistent standing in a seated area 
  • smoking in any area inside the stadium
  • attempting to enter the ground whilst drunk 
  • possessing alcohol when entering the ground or in a part of the ground from which the event can be directly viewed 
  • entering a part of the ground reserved for supporters of the opposing team.

Your ballot entries, booking record and the team you enter as your preferred team on your TFT profile will all be taken into consideration when we check for away fan bookings. Regardless of your guest's preference of team, if you are an away fan your order will be cancelled. In some cases neutral fans will also have orders cancelled when it is specifically noted on the event page which fans are permitted to book tickets. Persistent attempts to attend matches as an away fan will result in your membership being withdrawn. 

Members who do not enter their team on their TFT profile will not be offered balloted football tickets - these MUST go to home fans. 

For first come - first served football games, there is a limit of three home games, per season, per team unless otherwise advised by the donor.
