Next criteria confirmed for Sparta trip

By SFC Media Thu 06 Oct Sparta vs Saints

The next set of qualifying criteria for Southampton’s UEFA Europa League clash with Sparta Praha has been confirmed.

Claude Puel’s men face the side from the Czech Republic on Thursday 24th November, with a 6pm GMT kick-off time. The club secured an allocation of 1,703 tickets for the match, with 750 tickets now remaining.

Tickets are priced at £17, with no concessions, with the new on-sale dates as follows:

Friday 7th October – 2016/17 Season Ticket holders who have attended at least five domestic away games from the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons.
Monday 10th October – 2016/17 Season Ticket holders who have attended at least four domestic away games from the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons.
Tuesday 11th October – 2016/17 Season Ticket holders who have attended at least three domestic away games from the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons.

Please note, Southampton’s trip to Leicester City in October will not count towards the priority for this fixture.

All sale dates are subject to remaining availability. Tickets will go off sale at 8.30am each day, and then sales will resume with the new criteria at 9am.

Supporters should note that tickets will not be issued at the point of purchase and will instead have to be collected in Prague on the day of the game.

Please note, tickets will only be given to the ticket holder in person on production of photo ID. Tickets cannot be collected on behalf of friends or family members without the person being present with their own ID. Please do not attempt to collect tickets on behalf of other supporters, as this will lead to delays in fans being able to collect their tickets.

Following a visit to Sparta Praha, the club would like to provide supporters with some information regarding our allocation:

A large proportion of the seats in the Lower Tier have restrictions on the view of the pitch, due to the segregation used to the sides and at the front of the away end. Approximately 600 seats in our allocation of 1,700 are located in the Lower Tier (Blocks D91-D94).

The Lower Tier consists of 13 rows, with the first ten not covered by the roof of the stand. Should it rain, it’s highly likely that supporters in these rows will get wet.

We will be allocating tickets in the Upper Tier first, and then the Lower Tier last. Any supporters with accessibility needs attending the fixture are urged to contact the Ticket Office on 0845 688 9288 as soon as possible.

We will be receiving a small number of Wheelchair spaces, which will not be located with the rest of the visiting supporters. Fans requiring a Wheelchair space are asked to contact the Ticket Office on 0845 688 9288 to register their interest no later than 5pm on Tuesday 11th October. After this point, we will be able to advise on whether we will be able to allocate you a ticket.

We are attempting to secure more tickets for supporters requiring Wheelchair space, however due to the age and layout of the Generali Arena, this could prove difficult.
