The Club takes its responsibility for the safeguarding of children seriously, therefore any supporter under 13 years old must be accompanied by, and seated with, a qualifying adult, parent or guardian, (age 18 years and over). Where seats directly together are not available, the Club will decide based on the proximity of the nearest seat, and the decision is not negotiable.
2.14. You attend Matches at the Ground at your own risk and will not hold or seek to hold the Club, its officers, employees, contractors and/ or agents responsible for any injury, damage, loss, cost or expense whatsoever suffered as a result of your attendance at any Match (for example as a result of being inadvertently hit by a ball). This does not affect your statutory rights in the event that such injury, damage, loss, cost or expense is proven to be a direct result of negligence of the Club. The Club may from time to time advise of further risks of which they are aware.
2.15 Babes in Arms policy: Where parents wish to bring an infant or baby to a match at One Call Stadium, a ticket for that infant or baby must be purchased. The responsibility for the infant or baby’s welfare, comfort and safety always lie entirely with the parent during the match, pre and post-match activities and always while on the footprint of One Call Stadium or any facilities on the periphery of the stadium, whether or not that area is controlled by the football club. Specifically, parents must be aware there are risks to consider including, for example, the danger associated with a ball travelling at speed into the crowd, the impact of crowd noise on your baby and the potential for adverse weather.
Therefore, the Club would recommend that infants and babies are not taken into sections of the stadium that are directly behind the goal in the Quarry Lane End or in the lower section of the Ian Greaves Stand. The Club is unable to offer any storage facilities for prams or buggies. Mansfield Town Football Club confirms that admittance of an infant or baby to a match is entirely at the discretion of the parents who make an informed decision in this regard following the outlining of the risk factors to them. We accept no liability in the event of a child being harmed in any way by one of the risk factors listed above or any other incident in the stadium.
2.16 Before entering the Ground you may be asked to undertake temperature checks and/ or any other testing regarded as prudent in order to safeguard against COVID-19 risk.

Further you shall not use the Season Ticket for any commercial purpose. The reference to reselling the Season Ticket includes reference to offering to sell a Season Ticket (including, without limitation, via any website or online auction site), exposing a Season Card for sale, making a Season Ticket available for sale by another person and advertising that a Season Ticket is available for purchase. For the avoidance of doubt (and by way of example only) this Season Ticket may not be offered as a prize in any promotion or competition nor transferred, lent or sold to any third party as part of a hospitality or travel package, given to a third party who agrees to buy another good or service, or used for any other commercial purpose or disposed of in any other way, save as expressly authorised by The Football League or the Club.
3.2. All concessionary Season Tickets must be used by a person of the age/concession category to which the Season Ticket is assigned in accordance with Clause 6.

The Club shall have the right to terminate the Season Ticket without liability and the Season Ticket holder may be refused future access to the Ground at the Club’s discretion. Further, any Season Ticket issued free of charge to a companion of a disabled or vulnerable supporter to enable such disabled or vulnerable supporter to attend Matches is only valid if the disabled or vulnerable person is present at the time and point of entry and throughout the duration of the Match. Concessionary Season Tickets may be upgraded for use by a Guest on a single match basis subject to availability, but such upgrade must be completed prior to the Season Ticket being presented at a turnstile.
3.3. You may only resell or transfer the Season Ticket to a Guest with the express written consent of the Club given at the Club’s absolute discretion. No such resale or transfer will be permitted except where the same takes place in respect of an individual match and in consideration of no payment or benefit in excess of the face value of a ticket to that Match and such transfer does not take place during the course of any business or for the purpose of facilitating any third party’s business save for any secondary ticketing operator expressly approved by the Club.
Such resale or transfer to any Guest is hereby provided to be subject to the Terms and Conditions of Entry which will (save for any rights to transfer under this clause) apply to that Guest as if he/she was the original purchaser of the Season Ticket (and you must inform the Guest of this).
3.4. The unauthorised sale or disposal of tickets (including Season Tickets) is a criminal offence under section 166 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, as amended by the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006. The Club will inform the police if it becomes aware that Season Tickets are being sold or disposed of illegally and will press charges against those breaking this law. If you are convicted of a ticket touting offence, or we reasonably suspect you have committed a ticketing offence, we will notify the relevant Football Authority who may in turn notify other Premier League/Football League Clubs and/ or the relevant law enforcement authorities. The information that we share may include your personal data, information about the offence and about ticket purchases (including payment details). We will use this to identify and prevent ticketing offences and disorder at matches.
3.5. The Season Ticket will always remain the property of the Club and must be produced together with evidence of your identity if required to do so by any official, steward or employee of the Club or any police officer. The Club reserves the right to require the immediate return of the Season Ticket.
3.6. Any Season Ticket obtained or used in breach of the Terms & Conditions of Entry shall be automatically void and all rights conferred or evidenced by such Season Ticket shall be nullified. Any person seeking to use a Season Ticket in breach of the Terms and Conditions of Entry in order to gain entry to the Ground or remain at a Match will be a trespasser and will be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Ground in respect of a Match and/or the cancellation, suspension or withdrawal of this Season Ticket. In the event of any cancellation, suspension or withdrawal in accordance with this clause 3.7. No refund shall be payable to the holder in respect of any games missed through suspension or any unexpired portion of the Season Ticket.
- Changes to Dates, Refunds & Exchanges
4.1 No guarantees can be given by the Club that a Match will take place at a time or on a date. The Club reserves the right to reschedule any Match without notice and without any liability whatsoever. Your Season Ticket will enable you to attend the rearranged Match.
4.4. If a Season Ticket holder reasonably requests a temporary relocation to another area of the Ground, no additional payment shall be made by the Season Ticket holder for seating in the same or lower price categories. Outside of the free seat swap dates (published in the campaign material) a fee of £15 shall be charged for any seat change requests to cover administration costs.
4.5 Season ticket holders will receive a credit to their account to use against the balance of the following year’s season ticket price in the event that matches are not played due to the COVID-19 pandemic. iFollow Stags will be provided as an alternative to attending matches where attendance is prohibited and the difference between the cost of an iFollow pass and the value of a game purchased with the season ticket will be credited.
