Regarding the refund of the rest of the contracted services, such as trips and hotels, we will ask the hotels and wholesale agencies whether the refund is possible or not and which is the % of cancellation expenses applied.
Pricing Policy (The prices that appear on the website do not include VAT)
Our prices are significantly higher than the tickets face value. When the customer performs a booking, he/she is explicitly accepting the difference in price over the face value of the ticket, due to changes in supply and demand, the level of difficulty and cost of obtaining and selling it and, most importantly, the cost involved in the sending and delivering of the tickets on time to the agreed addresses as well as the structure and advertising costs.
The website holder informs the users and customers that the price charged is much higher than the face value price of the ticket, a situation that the he/she accepts. Obtaining the tickets for big events is a very difficult and expensive process and even more when the venue has sold out. That is why obtaining tickets causes large expenses to the website holder. The final price includes all of them.
The ticket packages will be always delivered by courier service or by our staff members, therefore someone will be required at the address provided in order to receive the tickets and avoid delays, which would be attributed to the customer. The ticket packages will be delivered up to 1 day before the event takes place, depending on the date on which they were issued. The ticket packages will be only delivered within the country or city where the event takes place. The delivery options may change depending on each country and event. For a purchase to be accepted a delivery address must be provided. Providing a wrong delivery address would mean the cancellation of the purchase, with the refund of the amounts paid and taking off the corresponding cancellation fees.
In case of not providing a delivery address at the time of purchase, you should note that such information is necessary at least 1 week before the event, when it takes place in Spain or Italy. For the rest of events abroad, the delivery address should be provided not later than 4 days after the purchase. If we do not receive, by email or fax, the necessary delivery information, we will be bound to cancel the purchase with costs.
If you want to purchase any of our products, we suggest, for safety reasons, that a few days before your arrival you contact the people at the ticket packages delivery address in order to remind them that an envelope addressed to you will be sent and that they must take care of it until your arrival. Our company will always keep each delivery and acceptance form.

This document will be used as irrefutable evidence of our efficiency in the service provided and following our customer’s request. The company informs that during the match previous days many envelopes are delivered. Since our customers do not remain at the hotel reception waiting for our delivery service to come —and they spend their time visiting their holiday destination, instead—, the envelopes will be left at the hotel reception by members of our company or by members of the courier company working for us. These documents are also irrefutable evidence of the efficiency in our service.

Regulations regarding Champions League and UEFA Cup fixtures_*
We inform our customers that all of our tickets are located within the home team areas of the pitch. Hence, selling tickets to the rival team’s supporters is not allowed.
Please do not buy tickets if this is your case,since you would be breaching the UEFA regulations.If any rival team supporter ignores this notice, he/she will be held the only responsible of the purchase in terms of sanctions and fines. See below the information about this new regulation: According to the UEFA regulations and the sports laws 10/1990 and 19/2007, both clubs and companies, involved in football games and tickets sale, must guarantee the complete fans’ segregation within the ground area. Otherwise,not only will the club be sanctioned, but the company selling the tickets will be fined too, if it is found to have sold tickets to non-authorised supporters from the rival team.
If this regulation is not respected, the club will denounce these facts before the corresponding Spanish authority*,* by pressing charges, *so that a judge legally determines *the costs of the fines of more than 30,000 euros regarding UEFA, apart from damages caused to both the club and its image.
Likewise, the ticket manipulation performed by some companies is a type of crime included in the Spanish penal code. Therefore, any price or holder name manipulation or modification will be denounced and the perpetrator will be brought before the the justice for a legal punishment, both economic and penal.
The club will then be able to withdraw the tickets rights-of-use authorisations from these companies.
