Everton Football Club can confirm the ballot registration period for the upcoming Carabao Cup quarter-final tie against Manchester United will open from 9am GMT on Monday 14 December.
The ballot for the Manchester United game, which is scheduled for Wednesday 23 December (8pm GMT kick-off), will only be open to Season Ticket Members and Seasonal Hospitality Members who live within the Liverpool City Region. This is to comply with Public Health guidance.
As the game is a domestic cup fixture, the ballot process will be slightly altered from the format used when allocating seats for the Premier League matches against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City. The registration period for eligible fans to enter the quarter-final ballot will run from 9am GMT on Monday 14 December to midnight on Tuesday 15 December.
The ballot will take previous Premier League ballot results into consideration when allocating tickets for this fixture, with the priority going to those who have attended the least number of games, to ensure a fair spread of tickets among supporters.
Once the registration period has closed, fans will receive an email confirming the outcome of their ballot entry on the morning of Wednesday 16 December. This email will include a link to purchase (match ticket prices below) the chosen match ticket/s for this fixture within a two-day window, closing at midnight on Thursday 17 December. Once purchased, supporters will be able to go into their ticketing account to download the tickets to a mobile device.
If, after the two-day sales window, there are any remaining seats, these will be opened up to the next set of supporters selected from the initial ballot. This will happen in stages until all seats have been sold.
This method of ticket allocation as part of the ballot process allows greater flexibility for supporters, providing the option to select seat/s at the point of purchase.
Ticket prices are as follows:
Adults (25-64) - £30
65+ - £15
Under-25s - £15
Under-18s - £10
Those supporters who are selected in the ballot but do not choose to purchase within the specified sales window will not be counted as attending, ensuring their chances of being drawn for future ballots is unaffected.
In support of the Liverpool City Region mass-testing programme, all fans who purchase tickets for this game 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.
