Bournemouth tickets & prices at the Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth season tickets: Pricing, availability 

As we approach the end of the calendar year, season tickets are no longer available at the Dorset club for the current campaign but after renewal details were disclosed earlier this year, some headlines were created due to the costs.

An average 9.7% increase was applied to the price of season tickets at the Vitality Stadium with the cheapest coming in at £594.00 and the most expensive, at £821.00

That is a significant price point for a smaller club with the profile of Bournemouth although their location in the south of the country as well as their limited capacity will be two factors that influence the price.

It is estimated that the Cherries' cheapest season ticket, £594.00, is the sixth most expensive (of the cheapest) in all of the Premier League.

Concession and Junior tickets were available at lower rates.

Bournemouth matchday tickets and single-match tickets: Pricing, availability

With season tickets unavailable at this stage, there is a limited number of individual match tickets on sale to see live Premier League action unfold at the Vitality Stadium.

As is standard across the board at various clubs, Bournemouth utilise a category system to determine the price of tickets, depending on the status of their opponents.

This season, the Cherries have confirmed the following price structure.

AFC Bournemouth tickets prices

Bournemouth tickets for home Premier League fixtures are on sale at the time of writing but the club does apply a points system, based on previous sales in terms of priority access before an effective general sale.

The pricing appears to be competitive and affordable for some games yet wide the top fixtures come at a premium for the best areas. These range from £31 to £39 in terms of the cheapest adult tickets available through to £44 to £53 for the most expensive, on an individual game basis.

The latest information on home tickets is always available on the club website.

Do I need a membership to buy Bournemouth tickets?

Not exactly, but Bournemouth sell individual match tickets using the ‘Cherries Points' scheme.

Only on limited occasions, will a fixture go to a general sale meaning that anyone can buy a ticket. The purpose of this is meant to ensure that genuine fans and those buying the tickets are doing so for the right reasons.

Once you have bought tickets two or three times, your points will accrue and that will make accessing certain games easier.

For groundhoppers or the casual fan, this means getting access to tickets is more difficult but it is still more than possible.

How to get a Bournemouth membership?

The ticketing website carries all of the relevant information on how to get to a game.

Whilst there is no membership as such, you will need to create an account on the Bournemouth ticketing portal in order to have a chance of purchasing a match ticket.

As set out above, the ticket pricing range is certainly not the ceapest in England but you are on the south coast.

There is a good case to be made if the stadium was bigger then cheaper tickets could be part of the conversation but as a smaller club compared to some of the elite in the Premier League, Cherries bosses would say that they need to strike a balance between maximising revenue and realistic costs.

Prices are always subject to change and the latest information is provided on the club website.

Bournemouth tickets FAQs

How to get to the Vitality Stadium at Bournemouth

The stadium address is AFC Bournemouth, Vitality Stadium, Dean Court, Kings Park, BH7 7AF.

As ever on Football Ground Guide, public transport is always advised with both Bournemouth (Central) and Pokesdown train stations within walking distance of the stadium.

The latter is the closer option with an approximate 15-minute walk required, but most trains will stop at Bournemouth which will require a 25/30 minute walk.

Local buses drop off nearby Dean Court including on a matchday whilst there is a taxi stand at both train stations named above.

How can I get Bournemouth away tickets?

Bournemouth away tickets are available first and foremost to season ticket holders and those with a high number of Cherries Points.

As with most football clubs in the top leagues, away tickets are not easily accessible and limited in numbers, dependent on the allocations at the relevant home stadium.

An alternative exists, with ‘touts' often on the streets at the stadium in what is effectively a black market as well as resale sites online. Some of these are more reputable than others, you will often pay well over face value and you should always be alert for scammers.

How can I get cheap Bournemouth tickets?

Bournemouth tickets are not cheap, even by Premier League standards, so you will need to be on the ball to get sorted for the game.

You will need to acquire points by first of all assessing what fixtures will drop to a general sale, otherwise, you could be calling in a favour from a Bournemouth fan or scrambling around Dean Court on a matchday.

Can I do a stadium tour of the Vitality Stadium?

At present, organised stadium tours are not readily available at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium.

Occasional tours happen as part of club events or for a particular feature but it is not something that anyone can just book online or to turn up at the stadium.

How to watch Bournemouth at home

If you are unable to purchase Bournemouth tickets or to get to the Vitality Stadium, you can watch the Premier League action from the comfort of your own home.

Over the season, selected Cherries' Premier League games will be live on Sky Sports or TNT Sports as well as a limited broadcast offering from Amazon Prime.

The FA Cup is screened by BBC and ITV, so any live coverage of Bournemouth winding their way to Wembley will be on freeview TV.
