Consultation and Information
The club will consult and communicate through supporter organisations, Open Forums, travel clubs, programme, web site and local and social media on issues relating to ticketing and other subjects.
At least 5% of tickets to each home game will be made available to non season ticket holders.
Concessions are available to juniors and seniors. We recognise definitions put forward in the Disability Discrimination Act. The Government offers 3 levels of Disability payments and those supporters receiving medium and high level allowance can take advantage of ticket prices for disabled supporters and a carer. If anyone feels they qualify please contact the Ticket Office where each case will be considered on its own merits. The onus of proof lies with the supporter claiming, not the club. Supporters are asked to note that people on High level disability benefit will be given priority for the disabled car parking spaces at Sixfields. The club provides an area of the ground within the East Stand for the use of family groups and junior supporters. Please contact the box office on 01604 683777 or email email@example.com for details of our disabled facilities and ticket allocation.
Cup Competitions and Away Matches
Season Ticket holders receive a priority period, time permitting, following which tickets are available generally.
Returns and Refunds (Not Season Tickets)
Every effort will be made to facilitate the return and re-distribution of unwanted tickets.Following the introduction of legislation to combat ticket touts (section 166 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994), any member of the public would be committing an offence if they should offer for sale any ticket that they have purchased for one of the Club's fixtures. Any unwanted tickets should therefore be returned to the point of sale at least three days prior to the fixture where, providing the ticket-holder has a genuine reason for returning the ticket(s), a full refund will be given.If any of the Club's home fixtures should be postponed before kick-off, ticket holders will be entitled to free admission to the rearranged game. If the match should be abandoned after kick-off, ticket holders will be entitled to half price admission to the rearranged match
Accommodating Away Supporters
The club abides by EFL Regulations governing the allocation of tickets to visiting clubs.The club does not charge higher admission prices to supporters of a visiting club than those charged to our own supporters for comparable accommodation. In particular our concessionary rates offered to senior citizens and junior supporters apply to supporters of a visiting club.
Northampton Town's ground regulations can be found here.
Ticket holders and/or purchasers of tickets will be responsible for compliance and observance of any ground regulations governing persons entering, present at or leaving the Sixfields Stadium of Upton Way, Northampton NN5 5QA. Misconduct of the ticket holder or nominee, failing to adhere to this policy or acting in a manner which the Club considers is detrimental to its interests or is likely in the reasonable opinion of the Club to bring Football or the Club into disrepute shall permit the Club to confiscate or forfeit (in each case without compensation) the ticket, to prevent access to the Stadium for the fixture in question and/or to ban the ticket holder from attending future matches or other events at the Stadium for such time as the Club deems appropriate. The club will seek where relevant to prosecute to the full extent of the law where applicable as well as informing other bodies either Football Regulatory or Law enforcement of any breaches of this nature.

Northampton Town Football Club have negotiated with English Partnerships (who own the North and South car parks) a continuation of the use of the current North and South car parks, and have achieved an operating licence for their use. Unfortunately this has been at a cost, therefore the club will need to recoup its costs via a small charge. Northampton Town Football Club would therefore like to inform all supporters that supporters using the North or the non-tarmac South car parks at Sixfields will be required to pay £4.00 to park their car at all matches. The income from these car parks will be received by Northampton Town Football Club.
