15. In the event that the Season Ticket is used by a Guest falling within a lesser value ticket category (by virtue of their age or occupation) than the Season Ticket holder neither that person nor the Season Ticket holder shall be entitled to any rebate in respect of such usage.

In this eventuality the Club will use reasonable endeavours to provide the Season Ticket holder with a seat of equivalent or higher value in another part of the Stadium. However, the Club accepts no liability by reason of the circumstances described in this clause 16 in the event that a Season Ticket holder or Guest is precluded from admission to the designated part of the Stadium or the designated seat shown on the Season Ticket, or if another seat is found for the Season ticket holder of lesser value than the designated seat shown on the Season Ticket.
