HOW TO BUY
Tickets must be bought online via eticketing.co.uk/salesharksrugby. Once you have your tickets in your basket you must assign each one to an individual. Click ‘reassign’ on any additional tickets and search for a person using their client ref/member number or surname. If the person doesn’t have a ticketing account then you can register them by clicking here.
Tickets will be allocated based on a ‘best available’ seating map to maintain social distancing.

How to re-assign tickets at checkout.

HOW IT WORKS
When you buy a ticket, you will receive an email with the electronic ticket attached, and when you open the email at the bottom there will be two ‘buttons’ – one for Apple Wallet and one for G Pay (Google Pay) which is used on Android devices.
You will need to have the relevant app downloaded on your phone if it isn’t pre-installed. Click on the button that applies to your phone and the card will be added. On match day you will just open the e-wallet, select your digital ticket and have it scanned.
FAMILY & GROUP TICKETS
If your season ticket is part of a family or a group all digital tickets will be sent to the lead member. These can all be added to the same wallet for families or you can add them to separate wallets if you are going to be arriving separately. To add to separate wallets you can either download it to your app and then “share pass” or forward the email. Please ensure that each person downloads their own seat as if the same pass is scanned twice only the first one will be allowed in.
If you are having a problem downloading the digital tickets then the issue is likely to be the settings on your phone.
On your phone, go into Settings, then into Apps.
Open up whichever internet browser you use then go into Settings to see the option for allowing/blocking Pop-ups.
You can then allow pop-ups from a specific website, or just allow them for the time it takes you to download the digital ticket(s) then re-block them.
Turn ‘block pop-ups’ off and change your default browser to Google Chrome, then re-try downloading the digital ticket(s).

What to expect
Sale Sharks have worked hard to ensure that matchdays are COVID safe and that our supporters feel comfortable when returning to the AJ Bell. There will of course be some changes to how matchdays feel but these considerations have been made with your safety in mind.
ARRIVAL AT THE AJ BELL STADIUM
We will be emailing everyone lucky enough to purchase a ticket 48 hours before KO with an arrival schedule and entrance zone. It is important that supporters adhere to the arrival times to minimise queueing. Entrance will only be permitted at the correct zone. We will also issue a health questionnaire which must be completed before your arrival. Failure to complete the health questionnaire in advance may mean that your arrival is delayed or entrance is not permitted.
At the AJ Bell:
- There will be a range of catering options including some special events however we ask that supporters adhere to social distancing at all times and do not gather near food stalls. Kiosks will be in operation however there may be a reduced offering.
- The Club shop will be open with some brilliant bargains – COVID restrictions has reduced the number of supporters allowed inside at any one time so please be patient.
- The matchday programme will be available to download via our social media pages and from our website.
- Moving around the Stadium: directional signage will be on display and supporters are reminded to socially distance at all times.
