Supporters who have joined the UEFA Competition Cup Scheme and whose seasonal seat is located in any of the affected areas listed above will have their seat relocated to an alternative area within the stadium. All supporters who have joined the UEFA Competition Cup Scheme and who have registered an email address with the Club will be sent a communication on Friday 7th September requesting that they select a first and second choice alternative seat location within the stadium. Supporters are kindly asked to provide the information to the Club no later than 8pm on Sunday 9th September.
It is important to remember that we have a significant number of supporters on the UEFA Competition Cup Scheme, and whilst we will endeavour to allocate you the best available seat, this may not be possible due to availability. There may also be occasions where we are unable to fulfil both your first and second choice options. If this is the case, we will allocate you a seat as close to your preferred choice as we can. All supporters on the UEFA Competitions Cup Scheme will have their seats processed before we go on sale to other supporters to ensure we can offer you the best available seats.
To ensure supporters have the widest choice of available seats to relocate to, we recommend that supporters register a valid email address with the club to ensure we can contact you to capture your alternative seat preference. This can be done by signing in to (or registering) your account online at www.mcfc.co.uk.

This is one of our biggest sources of complaints from your fellow supporters in all sections of the stadium. We wish to make our matchdays as enjoyable an experience as possible for all of our fans and, as such, we request that you and fellow supporters remain in your seat for the majority of the match. Fans who breach these requests may be ejected from the stadium, and in some cases may have their membership card withdrawn.
