The Club will clearly advise via the Communication Channels the number of Ticketing Points required to be able to apply for tickets to certain fixtures.
10.5 When Ticketing Points are used to allocate tickets for Away Matches, all Members must each have the required number of Ticketing Points individually, when applying for tickets in a group. Only the member of the group with sufficient Ticketing Points will qualify for a ticket. Tickets will NOT be issued based on the average number of points. If the supporter who submitted the application is unsuccessful then tickets will be sent to the registered address of a successful member of that group.
10.6 Members can check their Ticketing Points total by visiting the “My Account” page in the Ticketing section of www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
10.7 The Club reserves the right to allocate Away Match Tickets with official Club travel packages. In such circumstances, Ticketing Points may not apply.
10.8 Any queries relating to a member’s Ticketing Points MUST be raised with the Ticket Office in writing/via email. Any queries relating to points allocated for Matches prior to the season before the current campaign will not be considered.
10.9 Should a Member or Season Ticket Holder miss the date of renewal, they will be treated as a new Member with their Ticketing Points total returning to zero.
10.10 Tickets purchased outside of the Members Priority period must be assigned to individual Members at the point of sale in order for Ticketing Points to be awarded. If tickets are not assigned to individual Members at the point of sale it will not be possible to award Ticketing Points retrospectively.
10.11 Different Ticketing Point systems operate for Season Ticket Holders and One Hotspur Membership Members. In the event that a Member secures a Season Ticket, the points gained as a Member will be reset. Season Ticket Holders will always have priority on tickets over Members.
11.1 In accordance with the Ground Regulations, Members must remain in their seats while the game is in progress or when requested to do so by a steward or other Club official.
11.2 Members acknowledge that persistent standing while play is in progress can result in ejection from the Stadium and, in persistent cases, suspension of their Season Ticket or Membership and the cancellation of any future Match tickets without refund.
12 DISABLED MEMBERS
12.1 This Condition 12 is subject at all times to the effects of Covid-19 on the Club and the directions of any Competent Authority and applies to you if you are a Season Ticket Holder and you are registered with the Club as a member of the Disability Access Scheme. You must bring your current Season Ticket with you to every Match. You must also bring a form of personal identification with you when attending the Stadium. If you are unable to attend a Match please notify the Access Team via email on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that we can sell or donate your place to another disabled supporter, a charity or local disability organisation.
12.2 If you have been granted a personal assistant ticket as a reasonable adjustment to enable you to access the Matches more easily and the full range of matchday services we provide, your personal assistant must also bring their relevant Membership Card marked "Personal Assistant" with them to every Match. Personal assistants must not attend Matches on their own without the named supporter they are providing personal assistance for or any supporter who has not registered onto the Disability Access Scheme or made the Club aware of their access requirement.
12.3 Please note stewards and Club staff will be carrying out checks of tickets. All proven abuses of the Disability Access Scheme or the personal assistant scheme will be dealt with severely and will result in the loss of your Season Ticket and/or One Hotspur Membership. It may also result in criminal prosecution.

13.6 We do not guarantee that the team for any particular Match will necessarily only be selected from our First team players. We may consider it desirable on occasions to omit regular First Team players and select the First Team from the full playing squad.
