Can I attend a meeting at the Wessex Blues as a non member?
Yes, anyone can attend our branch meetings, as long as you eat, breathe and bleed blue. We do not charge an entrance fee to attend our branch meetings. Just find a seat at the meeting and either listen to what others have to say or join in with the discussions. If you then wish to join our branch please speak to Dr Richard Wild (General Secretary).
How much does it cost to join the Wessex Blues?
Membership fees are displayed on this website under the membership tab.
How do I join the Wessex Blues?
Dr Richard Wild is our General Secretary and looks after membership details. You can speak with Richard at any branch meeting about joining. Alternatively you can download a membership form from this website (available on the membership tab) and post it to Richard with your appropriate fee (cheques are made payable to the 'Wessex Blues') or contact Richard for further payment options.
How do I obtain tickets for Home and Away games etc.?
Dr Richard Wild organises and tries to obtain match tickets for the Wessex Blues branch. When match tickets become available for certain games, Richard normally sends out an email asking branch members if they would like him to try and obtain a match ticket for that game. Once known that tickets have been achieved for the branch, Richard will then send out a further email to ask for payment to be made to the branch account for your ticket. We are unable to guarantee match tickets for everyone, but we will do our best to help branch members to get to their selected game.
To order tickets through the branch you must be a paid up branch member and have a valid Cityzens membership (this must be obtained directly from MCFC) or a Seasoncard. Without these minimum requirements, MCFC will be unable to process any ticket for you and Dr Richard Wild will be unable to put in a request for you for a match ticket.
In order to apply for a tickets through the branch, individuals need to have attended at least three meetings out of the last five before applying for a ticket. No exceptions will be made. Once applications have been made for tickets and MCFCSC have provided us with our ticket allocation for a particular game and for an unfortunate reason this does not meet the amount required to the amount requested, then it will come down to ticket allocation to people who have attended 5 meetings out of the last 5 first, then if necessary 4 meetings out of the last 5 and so on. If we have a situation where we have more people attending 5 meetings out of the last 5 and still not enough tickets allocated then we will revert to names in a hat either electronically or a committee member will pick names at random.
All branch members must place their match ticket orders via Dr Richard Wild and pay for the ticket as soon as possible after the tickets have been confirmed. If money has not been forthcoming to the Treasurer and/or the money has not been paid into the branch bank account via online banking then the ticket will be withheld until payment has been made.
Anyone selling on tickets ordered through the branch will have their branch membership immediately terminated and will be reported to Manchester City, which will probably result in a ban via the Club. If any branch member is unable to go to a game where a ticket has been issued, please contact Dr Richard Wild and he will try to send the ticket back to MCFC and/or offer the ticket to a current branch member or to an alternative MCFC supporters branch.
Do you travel to Home and Away Matches in the UK?
Many of our members travel around the UK following Manchester City and many of these trips can be seen in our photo galleries.
We do organise and try to obtain match tickets for our branch members via MCFC who want to travel to these matches; however we do not organise to date travel to home and away fixtures and branch members currently organise their own travel arrangements to these games. If demand to a certain game is high however, then the branch may be able to arrange a mini-bus etc. for that game.
Do you travel to European Matches?
Many of our members travel around Europe following Manchester City and many of these trips can be seen in our photo galleries.
Like with Premiership, FA Cup, League Cup tickets etc....we do organise and try to obtain match tickets for our branch members via MCFC who want to travel to European matches; however we do not organise to date travel to European fixtures and branch members currently organise their own travel arrangements to these games.
