Ballot Registration For Arsenal and Manchester City Home Games To Close At Midnight

Supporters have until midnight GMT tonight to enter the ballot to apply for tickets for upcoming Premier League matches against Arsenal and Manchester City at Goodison Park.

The Blues host Arsenal on Saturday 19 December (5.30pm GMT kick-off) before facing Manchester City on Monday 28 December (8pm GMT), and supporters have until midnight Friday 11 December to register for the ballot process for the 2,000 tickets available for each match. Those fans who registered for the Chelsea ballot but were unsuccessful will have an increased chance of registering for the Arsenal or Manchester City ballot due to the weighting that is in place as part of the processing system.

Details of the ballot and ticket purchasing options for the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Manchester United on Wednesday 23 December will be issued later this week. 

New Government COVID-19 guidelines mean 2,000 fans can attend upcoming games at Goodison, including this Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea. Fans who entered the ballot for this weekend’s game were due to be notified today as to whether they had been successful.

To register for the ballot for upcoming matches against Arsenal and Manchester City, follow these steps:

- Access the ballot by clicking here or by calling the Fan Centre on 0151 556 1878 (opening hours 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) 

- Select the fixture/s you wish to attend and indicate the number and category of seats required (up to a maximum of six per registration from a friends and family group of eligible Season Ticket Members) 

All the 2,000 match tickets for each game will be allocated via the ballot process. A minimum of 91% of tickets will be allocated to Season Ticket Members and a maximum of 9% to Seasonal Hospitality Members and players’ families. 

The Club has developed a robust plan for the return of supporters which includes restricting ballot entries to Season Ticket Members and Season Hospitality Members who live in the Liverpool City Region. 

The Howard Kendall Gwladys Street stand, the Top Balcony and designated areas for disabled fans will be used to accommodate supporters as part of a socially distanced seating plan. 

In support of the Liverpool City Region mass-testing programme, all fans who are successful in the ballot will need to provide confirmation of having received a negative COVID-19 test result on the day of the game - or the day prior - to gain entry to the stadium. 

Full requirements for match attendance for those fans successful in the ballot process will be communicated in advance of each fixture. 

If you enter the ballot for a fixture, you will receive an email confirming the outcome of your ballot entry. These details will be communicated: 

- Arsenal email confirmation and further details will be provided 14 December

- Man City email confirmation and further details will be provided 15 December
