I still haven’t received a refund for Crystal Palace. When will I get this?

If you have not yet received a refund for your Crystal Palace tickets, then please contact Ticketmaster directly at www.ticketmaster.co.uk

What if I am on holiday or unavailable during the on-sale window?

Due to the exceptionally high demand for tickets, we can only guarantee priority for a set amount of time and on a particular date. To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend you take advantage of the priority window offered to you.

I bought finish line seats, will I get these again?

Finish line tickets in the Stadium are available for purchase as Diamond tickets.

If you purchased a Diamond ticket for the Crystal Palace event then you will have the opportunity to purchase a Diamond ticket at the same price for the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games.

I bought tickets for a particular position at Crystal Palace but I now want to move to a different position. Is that possible?

Yes, that’s possible. Crystal Palace ticket purchasers can select their tickets and get the relative discount (if any), they had for Crystal Palace. This does not include the new prices (Platinum and Gold), as these were not available for Crystal Palace.

I made a group booking or bought a multiday ticket or a special access seat for Crystal Palace. What should I do?

Anyone who made a group booking, purchased a multiday ticket or bought special access for the Crystal Palace will be contacted by Ticketmaster in due course.

Can I book over the phone?

Yes, please call the dedicated Ticketmaster hotline on 0800 055 6056. To purchase within a priority window you will need to have your password to hand.

Can I buy better seats for the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games than I had at Crystal Palace?

Crystal Palace ticket purchasers can select their tickets and get the relative discount (if any), they had for Crystal Palace. This does not include the new prices (Platinum and Gold), as these were not available for Crystal Palace.

How much do tickets cost?

The majority of tickets are priced between £12-50. More details will be available when you book.
