Season Ticket T&C

These are the terms and conditions (Terms) on which Livingston Football Club Limited (the Club) supplies your season ticket for admission to the Tony Macaroni Arena (the Stadium). These Terms apply to all season tickets for the 2020/2021 season and use of this ticket to attend, or view online, one or more game will be considered to constitute the acceptance of these Terms. The Club may change these Terms from time to time (for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulations and guidance), and any changes will be published on the website at https://livingstonfc.co.uk/ and will be binding on the holder. The season ticket will terminate at the end of the 2020/2021 season.

This season ticket remains the property of the Club at all times and its use is subject to compliance with these Terms. The season ticket must be produced for inspection at the request of the Club or its agents.

This season ticket is not transferable. It may only be used by the season ticket member detailed on the front in connection with the seat noted, subject to paragraph 6. If it is discovered through the verification process at turnstiles that a season ticket has been transferred to another, the Club reserves the right to confiscate the ticket. If, for example, a child’s ticket is used by an adult, the Club reserves the right to cancel the season ticket and no refund shall be given.

If you forget to bring your season ticket to the match the Ticket Office will issue a match ticket, in doing so this will invalidate the season ticket itself for that specific match. The re-printing of a ticket will carry the advertised Ticket Office administration charge of £5. If you lose your season ticket you must notify the Club immediately. A match ticket will only be issued if the season ticket has not been used for the game in question.

This season ticket is valid for virtual access to view such of the Livingston Football Club first team SPFL League closed-door home matches as are streamed online either as part of the SPFL’s deal with Sky Sports or via Livingston TV at https://lfclive.livingstonfc.co.uk/ (for such time as those are available) and, once the Club is able to open and operate the Tony Macaroni Arena in full, entry to Tony Macaroni Arena for such of the Livingston FC first team SPFL League home matches as are played at The Tony Macaroni Arena in the 2020/2021 season. For the avoidance of doubt, your season ticket does not include any SPFL Play-Off Matches, European matches, friendlies or domestic cup matches at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Subject to paragraph 5, this season ticket permits you to occupy the seat indicated on the season ticket or such alternative seat as the Club allocates to you from time to time at its discretion. A season ticket does not give the holder any automatic or guaranteed right to purchase the same seat for any subsequent season and nothing in these Terms shall constitute or imply any entitlement to occupy the seat indicated on the season ticket.

If your season ticket card is lost or destroyed the Ticket Office can issue a duplicate card for a charge of £10, in doing so this will invalidate the original card.

Season tickets acquired under an Instalment Plan will only be replaced as per paragraph 7 if all payments under the Instalment Agreement are up to date.

If you change your address during the season please contact the front office to amend your details to enable the Club to keep its records up to date. This is important, particularly if the Club needs to contact you in connection with cup matches or other offerings to season ticket holders.

If these images should feature an individual prominently the Club will make reasonable efforts to gain the consent of that person before publishing such images, however, if this is not possible, then entry into the Stadium shall be deemed consent unless the Club is notified in writing to the contrary.

17  With the exception of authorised media representatives holding accreditation issued by the Club/event organiser, the taking of photographs or filming by any means inside the Stadium is prohibited.
