Print At Home Match Tickets Scheme Is Introduced By Worcs Ccc

Print At Home Match Tickets Scheme Is Introduced By Worcs Ccc

Want to cut out worries about whether your Worcestershire CCC match tickets will arrive through the post in time during the 2015 season or are you keen to avoid unnecessary queues?

Then take advantage of the Print at Home scheme which has been introduced by Worcestershire for anyone purchasing tickets online to watch the County during their 150th Anniversary Year.

It is a scheme that is already in operation and works effectively at some other First Class counties and Worcestershire believe the same positive outcome will apply to Print at Home E-tickets at New Road.

Worcestershire's Membership and Ticketing Manager Amy Francetti explained: "For this season we have introduced Print at Home E-tickets.

"Basically how it works is when you purchase a ticket via the Worcestershire CCC website you will be emailed a Print at Home E-ticket which you can present as you enter the ground.

"It means there will be no waiting for tickets to arrive in the post, or queueing at the Ticket Collection Point, and there are no booking fees on E-tickets which do tend to mount up. Unlike many sporting venues we don't charge booking fees for tickets purchased online.

"This scheme just keeps us moving forward and into the 21st Century.

"From experience with other counties, we know that Print at Home is the way forward. E-tickets have only been on sale since the 7th April and so far the Club has saved £100 on postage alone."

Meanwhile, the 'swipe' card system for members is back in force at New Road for the 2015 season.

Francetti said: "Every Membership card has an RFID chip in them and members will now be required to scan in as they enter and leave the ground.

"Because of the ground development, we haven't had a swipe system in place for the past two years but this is back for the current season.

"It will give us a better idea from a health and safety point of view as to who is in the ground and it will allow us to see what value for money people are getting so we can market products better throughout the season and ready for next season."
