Alternatively, go straight to https://ticketing.thefa.com/. Members of the England Supporters Club and Travel Club can also purchase tickets during the priority members sale by calling 0844 847 2010.
Travel Club members receive priority access to home match sales, so the first members sale is open to Travel Club members only. The second sale period is then opened up to both Travel Club and England Supporters Club members before the home match goes on general sale.
Q. How do I purchase tickets for England away games?
A. The England Supporters Travel Club will first open a ‘registration’ period whereby Travel Club members can register their interest in purchasing a ticket to an away game. Once this registration period has closed and supporters have been notified that they have been successfully allocated a ticket, they will be able to purchase during the advertised sales window via https://ticketing.thefa.com/ or by calling 0844 847 2010.
Q. How many tickets can I purchase for England games?
A. Both England Supporters Club and Travel Club members can purchase up to 8 tickets for England home games. Only members of the Travel Club can purchase tickets to England away games; the policy is one per Travel Club member but they can purchase up to 4 in order by assigning other Travel Club fan numbers to the remaining tickets.
Q. What happens if an away game is oversubscribed?
A. Once the registration period has closed and the match is oversubscribed (there are more supporters registering for a ticket than there are available tickets) a ballot is conducted based on members caps to fairly allocate tickets to supporters who registered their interest. For more information, please refer to the Membership Rules [here].

A. You will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the order number and fan number(s) that need assigning. You will need to do this before the fixture takes place or within 21 days of attending a fixture. Please be aware that we cannot retrospectively apply caps for games outside of the 21 days or for tickets purchased prior to a membership being obtained.
