Winners of the +1 ticket promotion will receive a free ticket to a Round 2 home game of the Capital One Cup (opt-in home clubs only), as advertised. The advertisement for the promotion will contain a code, which the entrant will require when purchasing their ticket and requesting their free +1 ticket. The first 350 x entrants per club purchasing with the code will be provided with a free +1 ticket, of the same or lesser value. +1 tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. +1 tickets are restricted to 1 per person. Clubs will endeavour to ensure that the purchased ticket and the +1 ticket are seated next to each other in the stadium.

This offer is open to home fans only. By redeeming this offer, you are committing to being a supporter of the home club. Each club taking part in this promotion has the right to refuse purchase, refuse admission and / or eject fans from the match if this is perceived not to be the case.
