FULL-TIME offers you an easy way to manage your football leagues online.
Enables clubs and referees to administer their day to day activities
Please note that this membership period is now closed. Further details will be announced in due course on how to join the 2018-2020 England Supporters Travel Club membership scheme.
Members of the England Supporters Club earn "caps" for attending England home games with two caps awarded for each home game attended.
Travel Club Members can still earn two caps for each home match they attend but they will also be awarded two caps for each away game they attend. Caps are usually applied within a week of attending each match and will show as 'active' on your account. The caps system runs on a maximum four year rolling basis, so any caps earned prior to the 2014 Brazil World Cup will become inactive and show on your 'all-time' caps list.
Members can see their position on the caps table here.
The caps system is in place to ensure that tickets to England away games and tournament matches which are oversubscribed, will be distributed as fairly as possible and on the following basis: 70% of tickets will be awarded to fans at the top of the caps table, with the rest of the tickets going to a ballot. By building up your caps level now it will help you in future away match and tournament ticket applications.
If you purchase tickets to an England home game during the members sale, you will be able to assign a FAN number to each ticket purchased, this will ensure that the caps are awarded automatically to each account upon attendance each match.
For tickets purchased outside the members sale you will need to ensure that all FAN numbers in the order are correctly assigned to the tickets by emailing us the details, otherwise caps will not be awarded. If FAN numbers are not assigned before a match has taken place, caps can still be claimed up to 21 days after the match by submitting an email request to email@example.com, enclosing the order number and/or image of the ticket stub for the relevant game. Fans are reminded that caps can only be claimed for tickets purchased directly through The England Supporters Club and The FA.
England Supporters Travel Club members can view upcoming away fixtures and register their interest in attending these matches by viewing the “Tickets & Matches” page. Please check the news section regularly for up-to-date information regarding away ticket registrations periods, ballots and ticketing sales.
The ticket policy for England away matches (including tournaments) is strictly on ticket per Travel Club member. However, members can purchase up to 4 tickets in an order providing they are assigned to valid Travel Club fan numbers. Tickets can be purchased via https://ticketing.thefa.com/ or by calling Ticketmaster on 0844 847 2010.
Please be aware that any match ticket issued by the England Supporters Club to a Travel Club member is done so on the condition that it is for that member’s use only.
The sale or offer for sale, or passing of these tickets, to a third party by any means whatsoever (including advertising by any form of social media or other internet or web based system including the ESTC Forum) is strictly forbidden.
Any member who sells, offers to sell or passes on their match ticket, will have that ticket cancelled and their ESTC membership suspended which could lead to its termination.
This type of behaviour could also constitute a criminal offence.
As the current membership is now closed you will no longer be able to request a replacement membership card.

Members that are unsuccessful in this draw will go into a ballot for the remaining 30% of tickets with all other Members. Should a mini-ballot be required within a certain caps level, then the Members who are unsuccessful in this mini-ballot will be given priority for any returned tickets. • Members that qualify for the first 70% ticket allocation or those who are allocated a ticket within the 30% ballot will be given a set period to phone or go online and buy their ticket. Only these Members will be able to buy tickets in this way. • Any tickets that remain after this sale will be offered on a first come first served basis to all other Members. • A Member wishing to return a ticket to away matches which has been purchased from The FA may apply to The FA for a refund in writing, but must return the match ticket (and application for a refund) so that it is received by The FA at least 21 days before an away match.

Members who are unsuccessful in this draw will go into two ballots for the remaining tickets, as follows: • 20% will be balloted to Members who have missed out on the 70% allocation. However, the Members eligible for this ballot will be limited to those who have attended at least two away games and four home games in the 2016-2018 membership period. • 10% will be balloted to all Members who missed out in the 70% allocation and the 20% ballot. • Members with the highest caps totals will be given priority to receive their price preference for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ tickets, subject to permissions being granted by FIFA. • In the event of the Members ticket allocation being over-subscribed, no tickets will be allocated to Members who have not attended a single match (home or away) in the 2016-2018 membership period. • The FA aims to allocate tickets for major tournaments in the fairest possible way and in accordance with these Rules.

Members who purchased their ticket without using their membership number in the general public sale will have 21 days from the date of the game to claim their cap. Caps can be claimed by submitting a request in writing to the England Supporters Travel Club, enclosing the ticket stub for the relevant game. • For away games, a Member must either sign-in at the England Supporters Travel Club office at the host city on match day or supply proof of travel (e.g. original travel tickets or hotel invoices including the Member’s name) within 21 days of the relevant match taking place. Failure to supply such information will lead to no caps being awarded for the match, may lead to caps level being reset to zero and potential cancellation or suspension of membership. • The FA reserves the right to request that members collect their match tickets for an away match, this may be requested at any time before match day. • Caps for home or away games will not be updated once the relevant deadline dates have passed.

Section 6.5 – Travel and Attendance at Matches • A Member must be in possession of a full (10 year) passport if they wish to travel to an away match.
