Our recommendation when costumers are booking a football trip to England, Germany, Spain, France and Italy is to book Friday-Monday for weekend matches as the game day can be changed until the last day of a same week.

Sports Away can in most cases confirm the section, line and place before the booking is made, contact us if desired.
During the football match at a few individual arenas, the seller has the right to place reservations with an even number of travellers in rows above each other.

All dates and start times are subject to change due to TV commitments and it is the customer's responsibility to check for any changes.

If you are attending more than one event during your trip,it is the costumer’s responsibility to re-check that those events are not taking place at same time or day.
If the event is cancelled (e.g. natural disaster, war, pandemic or illness in the team/club/team, etc.) or changed to a new date or time, moved to another arena/track/venue or cancelled, the event tickets are automatically moved to the new replacement date for the event. No refund is possible!

When we at Sports Away AB bought your event tickets, we approved our partners' (organizers, courses, arenas, clubs, etc.) conditions for ticket purchases to 100%. This means that we have to follow the rules that partners have for the specific event.
The partner has the full right according to the agreed agreement (Sports Away AB's approved partner's conditions when purchasing your event tickets) to refuse a refund in order to instead offer a voucher for future events.

Sports Away cannot be held liable for any part of the package trip by the traveller if this has been rejected from the match / event by the organizer.
Face Value (the price that may be printed on the event ticket) is not the price Sports Away buys match / event tickets for from clubs and agencies. Some tickets are bought secondarily from other agencies, which can mean that the name of the primary customer can be on the ticket. This will not affect you as a customer.
