Conditions of Entry (as may be amended from time to time and which
can be found on or accessed via the Website or can be provided upon
written request to the Club).
1.2 The Club licenses you to use the Season Tickets and any Card as selling
agent for, and on behalf of, ASMCL. As a result, ASMCL will have all of
the rights and obligations of the Club under these Terms and Conditions
and your rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions shall
lie against ASMCL only.
1.3 The Season Ticket and each Card remains the property of the Club at
all times. The Season Ticket and each Card may be cancelled in whole
or in part by the Club at any time without providing any reason. A

in the event of any such cancellation.

and Conditions becoming lost or stolen, you must inform the Club
immediately. In addition, if any such Season Tickets or Cards are stolen,
you must also inform the police immediately.
1.5 If you are a consumer then references in these Terms and Conditions to
“you” are to the individual using the Season Ticket for private and noncommercial
purposes.
1.6 If you are NOT a consumer, references in these Terms and Conditions to
“you” are to the business that you are binding and you confirm that you
have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you are purchasing
the Season Ticket.
2. Term
These Terms and Conditions are valid for the duration of the Licence
Period, unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Terms
and Conditions.
3. Benefits
3.1 Subject to your payment of the Licence Fee and the Terms and
Conditions of Entry, you will be entitled to the following benefits for the
duration of the Licence Period:
(A) you will automatically become a Platinum Member for the Licence
Period and the Membership Scheme Terms and Conditions for the
relevant Season shall apply to such Membership, as available at
www.arsenal.com from time to time; and
(B) you will be entitled to the benefits set out in clauses 7 and 8 below.
3.2 If you are a WM Member, you will be entitled to the additional WM
Benefits (subject to the additional Terms and Conditions set out in
Schedule 1).
3.3 If you are a Foundry Member, you will be entitled to the additional
Foundry Benefits (subject to the additional Terms and Conditions set out
in Schedule 2).
4. Renewal
4.1 The Club would expect, in normal circumstances, to be able to permit
you to renew your licensing arrangements in respect of the Club Seat(s)
at the end of the Licence Period on such terms, including the amount
of the Licence Fee, as may be determined by the Club in its discretion,
and when such renewal is available the Club will contact you using
the latest contact details supplied by you to the Club. Ordinarily, the
Club would expect such communications to come out, and renewals to
take place, prior to the end of the then current Season and you should
ensure that your contact details held by the Club are kept up to date.
However, this clause 4 does not constitute any guarantee by the Club
whatsoever of any renewal, or give you any rights to renew these Terms
and Conditions or any other rights in respect of the Club Seat(s) after
the end of the Licence Period.
4.2 If you are a WM Member or Foundry Member and you do not renew
your membership of the WM or Foundry Club (as applicable) you will
also no longer be entitled to the benefits set out at clauses 7 and 8
below. In those circumstances, if you wish to continue to be a Platinum
Member (without the additional WM Benefits and/or Foundry Benefits
that are available to WM Members and/or Foundry Members) you must
submit a written request to the Club to this effect. On receipt of this
request and subject to availability we will use reasonable endeavours
to offer you the use of alternative Club Seat(s) for the following Season.
In the event that you decline to take up the option of alternative Club
Seat(s), or if alternative Club Seat(s) are unavailable, you will cease
to be a Platinum Member at the end of the Licence Period. In those
circumstances, should you wish to be a Platinum Member for the
following Season you would need to re-apply to join the Platinum
Membership Scheme.
5. Admission to the Ground

or using a Season Ticket to gain access to the Ground, you: (a) certify

and to comply with; and (c) agree to bring to the attention of others, as
required below, the Terms and Conditions of Entry.
5.2 The Season Ticket shall only entitle the User to gain admission to the

instructions to, and will, refuse admission to any person in the event that
such person’s Season Ticket is not so validated by such control readers.
5.3 The Season Ticket shall admit you to each Match. If, for any reason, it

alternative ticket will be issued to you in respect of that Match. Any such tickets will be either sent electronically or by post by the Club to you at
the registered email or Address, at your risk.
5.4 The Season Ticket must be used if the User wishes to gain access to the
Ground for any Relevant Cup Match, save that it may not be valid for
any UEFA Competition fixture. The Club will notify you in advance of
any such fixture (such notification may only be the posting of details on
the Website so the User is advised to check the Website regularly for
relevant information) as to:
(A) whether the Season Ticket will be valid for each home UEFA
Competition fixture; or
(B) whether the Club will send a replacement card or ticket to you at
the Address, at your risk, for each home UEFA Competition fixture.

person) to be carried through the turnstiles without a valid card or ticket
for the relevant Match.
5.6 A Season Ticket permits you to occupy at the Match the Club Area
and the Club Seat or such other alternative seat of equivalent value
as the Club may, from time to time, allocate to you at its reasonable
discretion. All access to the Ground pursuant to a Season Ticket shall
be for the purposes of private enjoyment of the Match only, not for any
commercial purpose (and no authorisation is given or implied in respect
of the carrying out of any commercial activities).
5.7 Unless otherwise agreed and stated in the Renewal Form, nothing in
these Terms and Conditions shall constitute or imply any entitlement
to occupy a Club Seat in any Season following the end of the
Licence Period.

you bring into the Ground or use within the Ground (or provide to,
facilitate or otherwise assist another person to use within the Ground)
any equipment or technology which is capable of capturing, logging,
recording, transmitting, playing, issuing, showing or otherwise
communicating (by digital or other means) any such Material. Any
person acting in breach of this provision may have such equipment or
technology confiscated and/or will be required to deliver up any tapes,
films, disks, memory cards, memory sticks or other recordings of the

right, title and interest in such rights to the Club and the PL absolutely
and with full title guarantee.
5.9 Mobile telephones and other mobile devices are permitted within the
Ground PROVIDED THAT (a) they are used for personal and private use
only (which, for the avoidance of doubt and by way of example only,
shall not include the capturing, logging, recording, transmitting, playing,
issuing, showing, or any other communication of any Material for any
commercial purposes); and (b) no Material that is captured by a mobile
telephone or other mobile device may be published or otherwise made
available to any third parties including, without limitation, via social
networking sites.

clothing worn in good faith, you and any Guest(s) shall not bring into,
use, wear or display within the Ground any sponsorship, promotional or
marketing materials.
5.11 You shall not offer or distribute (either free or for sale by any person)
within the Ground any consumer article or commercial product of
any nature. For the avoidance of doubt this clause shall not prevent
the lawful distribution of text publications in any format which do not
infringe clause 5.10 above where both the content and the publication
are lawful in all respects and do not in the Club’s reasonable opinion
constitute a threat to public order.
5.12 The Club reserves the right to refuse admission to, or eject from, the
Ground any person who fails to comply with the Terms and Conditions
of Entry.

programme. Where possible, subject to the Club’s overall ticket
allocation for such fixture, you will be allocated one ticket in
respect of the Season Ticket. However, the Club cannot guarantee
that any such allocation will be made.
