    Cost of upgrading an U18 ticket


    0 Not allowed!
    Anyone know the actual cost for upgrading a WSU central under 18 ticket to an Adult ticket? Looks like my son won't be able to attend the Spurs match so was trying to get an idea of the real cost before calling the ticket office as the ticketing FAQ just talks about pro-rata costs.

    Thanks

    And she treats me like I’m just another lackey
    But I can put a tennis racket up against my face
    And pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki

      You can more or less work it out - it’ll be the difference between the full price of a match day ticket (Spurs will be A cat but depends on where you sit) minus the actual amount you currently pay (annual ST cost/19 games) taken. Think I did it twice for my lad’s U18 ticket previously and it was around £30 to upgrade. Had to do it for yesterday too but he’s U21 now so it was £14 to upgrade to full adult.

      Not done it personally, but it looks to me that it’d be: 52 - (305/19) = 52-16.05 = £35.95. They’ll probably round it up, so £36.

      I’d be interested to know if I’m right...

      Sounds spot on........not sure if there is a small Barbertax on top

      Be wary. I tried this last season for the Southampton home game. My 15 year old son couldn’t make it so my brother took the ticket. Being good upstanding fans we decided to approach the club and pay the additional cost for an adult ticket. Instead of a straight forward exchange of a few quid we got embroiled in argument with the ticketing team about how we might have jumped the loyality queue preventing a fan with enough points attending the game. Ended up having to buy another ticket as they refused to allow the upgrade. I wish we’d just risked it and sneaked in. Still pisses me off. Petty and money grabbing when we just trying to be honest.

      Unless your brother looks under 18 then the stewards at the turnstiles will spot your little ruse.

      Was this classed as a Cat C or Cat B game?
