1. Covid-19, venue entry & security
Covid-19 & stadium capacities
Ticket reservations are sold, based on 100% stadium capacities. If local governments impose stricter Covid-19 restrictions for public health reasons and reduce stadium capacities at short notice, then advance ticket reservations made by us, on behalf of our customers (general public), may be subsequently cancelled by the clubs. Season ticket holders and registered members of clubs always have first refusal on ticket availability and will be offered seats first for the reduced capacity, before the general public. If stadium capacities are reduced, ticket availability for the general public may therefore become unavailable and any advance bookings cancelled by the clubs.
Tickazilla cannot be held responsible or liable for any costs or losses you may incur if stadium capacities are reduced and your ticket reservation is subsequently cancelled by the club.
To combat the spread of Covid-19, national governments have imposed mandatory health and safety procedures at venues. These protocols, without limitation, may require you to wear a face-mask for the entire duration of the event, answer health screening questions and pass a body temperature test (below 37.5 degrees) upon entry, and adhere to any other specific entry requirements, such as FFP2 face masks, evidence of an approved Covid-19 vaccination certificate/pass with QR code, which shows you have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, or made a full recovery from Covid-19.
If you need to provide evidence of a full vaccination against Covid-19; your final vaccination or booster vaccination must have been completed at least 14 days prior to the event start time and within 180 days of the event start time.
If you need to provide evidence of a full recovery from Covid-19; you must have recovered from at least 11 days after you tested positive and within 180 days of the event start time.
Depending on the country you are travelling to, negative PCR tests or rapid antigen tests (within a specified time of the event start time) may no longer be accepted as evidence. If they are not accepted, you must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, or have fully recovered from Covid-19, within the time limits set out above.
Some of these entry requirements may not be necessary for children under a specific age.
The Covid-19 vaccination certificate/pass you use, must be one that has been approved by the national government of the country, where the venue is located. It must also be compatible with the government’s official verification technology/apps.
In order to enquire about specific entry requirements for event venues and related Covid-19 protocols, or to check that your country's Covid-19 vaccination certificate/pass will be duly accepted, please contact the nearest embassy of the country you are travelling to, or contact your government’s foreign travel department.
These strict health and safety requirements are mandatory and may require spectators to arrive at the event venue much earlier than the event start time. Entry time slots depend on your seating location and range from approximately 30 mins to 2 hours prior to the event start time. If you fail to comply with the Covid-19 health and safety protocols, or fail any of the checks, or fail to produce an approved, valid and functioning Covid-19 certificate/pass, this shall entitle the venue, event organisers or venue staff to eject you from the venue, or prevent entry into the venue, and you will not be entitled to a refund.
Venue entry & security
Venues reserve the right to refuse admission should you breach any terms and conditions of the venue, event or event organisers.
Any unacceptable behaviour likely to cause damage, nuisance or injury shall entitle the venue, event organisers or venue staff to eject you from the venue or prevent entry into the venue, and you will not be entitled to a refund.
Tickazilla cannot be held responsible or liable for any costs or losses you may incur if you fail any of the entry regulations of the venue, or if you breach any terms and conditions of the venue.
You will be asked to produce photographic identification upon entry at certain venues, so you must carry your passport, or other approved form of photographic identification, whilst attending the event.
To verify your Covid-19 vaccination certificate/pass, you will also be asked to show photographic identification that matches the name on your Covid-19 vaccination certificate/pass.
Tickazilla cannot be held responsible or liable for any costs or losses you may incur if you fail to present valid photographic identification. Venue security
Venues may conduct security searches to ensure the safety of other spectators/guests. You and your belongings may be searched at designated security checkpoints at the venue and any prohibited items may be confiscated and may not be returned to you. If you fail to comply with instructions from venue staff then you may be ejected from the venue or prevented from entering the venue, and you will not be entitled to a refund.
Tickazilla cannot be held responsible or liable for any costs or losses you may incur if you fail to adhere to venue security regulations.
2. Ticket cancellations & refunds
All event ticket sales are final.
Event tickets cannot be cancelled, exchanged or refunded except as set out in Conditions 5.7 (iv) and 5.7 (v) of our General Terms & Conditions.
If an event is suspended or postponed and waiting to be rescheduled or has been rescheduled, your tickets will be transferred to the rescheduled event date, up to the same value of the original cost of tickets. Tickets cannot be cancelled, exchanged nor refunded. Should you be unable to attend the rescheduled event date then it is your responsibility to resell your tickets or transfer your tickets to family or friends (that can attend the rescheduled date), or claim a refund on your travel insurance policy.
Tickazilla strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel insurance to cover your ticket purchase against an event being cancelled or postponed.
3. Seat groupings
Some event organisers generally issue seats in pairs, whereby two seats are positioned together side by side.
We therefore provide a minimum guarantee of seats positioned together in pairs, unless we specifically state that all seats are positioned together within the ticket category or ticket description. It is important therefore that you read the ticket category/description carefully for your chosen ticket.
Ticket descriptions are available next to each ticket category on our ticket listing webpages.
Exception - FC Barcelona - Pairs
For FC Barcelona games played at the Nou Camp in Barcelona, we cannot always provide our minimum guarantee of pairs i.e. two seats positioned together side by side.
FC Barcelona only guarantee seats together in pairs, within the following definition of pairs:
1. two seats positioned together side by side.
FC Barcelona will always try to prioritise pairs (as above) however in rare circumstances, the club may issue pairs as:
2. a seat directly in front of the other seat.
3. two seats together in a diagonal pair.
4. two seats together in a diagonal pair that are separated by an aisle/ step.
5. two seats together in a diagonal pair that are separated by one seat.
6. two seats side by side that are separated by an aisle/ step.
7. two seats side by side that are separated by one seat between them.
8. two seats in front of each other that are separated by one seat/row.
3 or more seats
Unless we specifically state that all seats are positioned together (within the ticket category or ticket description), group bookings of three or more persons may be seated in different rows, sectors or stands (within the positions of your allocated ticket category) and therefore separated from each other.
Where the ticket category/description does not specifically guarantee all seats together, we will always sincerely try our hardest to seat groups together, or as close together as possible, however we cannot always guarantee this.
We can only guarantee seats together if the ticket category/description specifically states that all seats will be positioned together. It is important therefore that you read the ticket category/description carefully for your chosen ticket.
To provide you with our guarantees for seat groupings, all tickets must be placed under the same booking reference and paid for in a singular transaction. We are unable to 'connect' tickets that have been booked and paid for in separate transactions, unless we specifically inform you in writing by email.
If you have any specific requests for seating allocations or seat groupings, please contact us.
The face values printed on your tickets may vary slightly to each other as certain sectors within your allocated ticket category may have different pricing structures. You acknowledge that we do not have any control over this.
4. Seating & ticket allocations
Ticket descriptions & categories
Ticket descriptions are available next to each ticket category on our ticket listing webpages.
Please note; some ticket categories provided on our website are our own definitions, which may differ from the official categories offered by the event organiser.
Where necessary, Tickazilla reserve the right to supply free ticket category upgrades without notice to you, and this shall not constitute breach of the Contract.
Stadium seating plans
Stadium seating plans are not to scale and only representative of approximate seat positions.
Home supporter sections
Seats will be positioned in the home supporters sections of the stadium. You will be seated with supporters of the home team (i.e. the team from the city/country where the event is being played). Some of these areas may also be seated with neutral supporters.
The colours of the away team (shirts, scarves, jackets etc) will not be permitted into these sections of the stadium.
Away supporter sections
Seats will be positioned in the away supporters sections of the stadium. You will be seated with supporters of the away team (i.e. the visiting team).
The colours of the home team (shirts, scarves, jackets etc) will not be permitted into these sections of the stadium.
5. Event dates
The dates and times for all events are shown as provisional or confirmed. Also, event start times are marked as local.
Those events that are marked as provisional may be moved at short notice to alternative event dates or event start times. If an event is marked as provisional then all possible variations to the performance date of each event are displayed online. This information is also available throughout the online booking process.
Once the date/ start time for provisional event dates has been confirmed by the event organisers, we'll notify you accordingly via email.
6. How do provisional event dates affect the duration of my hotel stay?
For those events that are marked as provisional, hotel stays should cover all days that the event could potentially take place on. This will ensure you do not miss the event you are travelling to watch.
If you book your hotel online via our website, the hotel check-in date and number of nights are automatically set to cover all possible dates that your chosen event may be performed on.
It is your responsibility to ensure you book the correct number of nights to cover the performance dates of the event
Similarly, if you are booking your hotel independently then you must also ensure your stay covers all possible nights that the event may take place on.
7. Face value of event tickets
Event tickets are sold above or lower than the face value at commercial market rates and reflect supply and demand for that particular event. In order to secure 'difficult to obtain' tickets, preferred seating and to guarantee tickets in advance (before general sale to the public) and at sold out events, we ourselves have to pay a high premium above the face value to event organisers and/or authorised/ third party agents. You acknowledge that we do not have control over the ticket prices set by such companies, and that we cannot be held responsible for such prices.
Face value of tickets may vary for each event and normally reflects the profile of the event. If face values are not provided within your ticket description then indications of face values are highlighted below:
General Admission tickets range from €10 Euros to €100 Euros
Category Four tickets range from €10 Euros to €85 Euros
Category Three tickets range from €15 Euros to €95 Euros
Category Two tickets range from €25 Euros to €120 Euros
Category One tickets range from €30 Euros to €250 Euros
VIP tickets: from €120 Euros
Where applicable some values are approximate. Ticket offices may also charge a 10% - 20% administration/ booking fee in addition to the face value. In some instances the face value may not be printed on tickets or season/ electronic access cards that are issued to our clients.
Business costs not included in face value
The final price you pay also considers other factors that encroach on our business costs (other than profit) which are not included in the face value of the tickets;
Firstly, it is worth noting that overseas event organisers/ companies have to charge VAT to us before considering their own additional costs and profit margin.
Secondly, we have to consider UK VAT @ 20%, overseas bank transaction charges, risks associated with foreign currency exchange rates, administration costs, advertising costs and service.
We fully support our customers ‘shopping around’ before buying (or not buying) from us. By purchasing from us you will have peace of mind that your tickets will be available in advance for the event you attend.
8. Ticket types provided
Season tickets & member cards.
Some ticket agents may pre-book season tickets at the start of the season with the respective sports clubs/ event organisers that may be used for your event booking. Season tickets are normally issued in the form of electronic access cards, member cards or paper tickets and may have different spectator names on them. This is standard practice for the majority of football clubs. Also, club members that do not take up the option of attending games may also return their electronic access cards/ member cards/ tickets back to the respective clubs which may also be issued as part of your ticket booking.
These cards and tickets are officially allocated to our customers with the approval of the respective clubs. The names of each spectator are still given to the respective authorities whom take note of which persons are actually attending the event. You will not have any problems gaining access into the stadium using these cards or tickets.
If such cards or tickets are issued as part of your bookings, some clubs may also provide official supporting documentation to provide details of the relevant spectator name changes (the spectator names on your booking). You must take the supporting documentation with you to the stadium with the cards/tickets (plus valid photographic identification for each spectator). Failure to take the official supporting documentation with the tickets may result in stadium officials refusing you entry into the stadium.
You may also need to return the cards back to the reception desk of your hotel after the game, as the cards will need to be returned to the club and used by other spectators at future games. If this is required for your booking, instructions on how to return your cards will be provided in the envelope that we deliver your tickets in.
Electronic tickets (e-tickets)
Some event organisers may issue e-tickets for your booking rather than paper tickets. If e-tickets are issued then we will send e-tickets (normally in PDF format) to your registered e-mail address. You will need to print the e-tickets and take them with you to the venue. You must therefore monitor your e-mail inbox before you attend the event.
9. Finding the venue & locating your reserved seats
You will be responsible for finding your way to the venue and locating your reserved seat(s) inside the venue. The location details of your reserved seat will be displayed on your ticket/ entrance pass. Signs are also marked at the venue to help with entry into the venue and to identify the correct seat locations.
If you are unable to find the correct entrance or have difficulty in identifying your reserved seat then you should contact the nearest steward/ venue staff for assistance so they can help you find your seat.
You agree that no claim will be made against us for the actions or failures, whether negligent or intentional, of any third parties including (but not limited to) the venue, event organisers, official ticket distribution partners of the event organisers or venue staff/ stewards. We will also not be liable for how your seat information is displayed on the tickets nor the language that is printed on the tickets.
10. Security measurements, punishment bans & members at football games
Event organisers may on rare occasions impose strict security measurements, or punishment bans at certain games. Some clubs may also cancel their existing booking policies (at certain games) and limit spectators to those that are only registered members of the club.
Spectators at stadiums may therefore be limited to:
1. local residents that live in the city where the game is taking place in, or
2. registered members/card holders of the team, or
3. passport holders of the country where the game is taking place in, or
4. passport holders of all countries except passport holders of the country from where the opposing away team is registered, or
5. no spectators i.e. matches may be played behind closed doors with no public attendance
Event tickets can only be issued by such supporters. Access into the stadium will be denied for any other supporters.
Furthermore, where demand by registered members is extremely high then only a limited number of tickets may become available to the general public and/or certain ticket categories may sell out. Registered club members have first refusal on tickets even if the general public book confirmed tickets in advance with the club’s official agents. In this scenario, clubs may subsequently cancel their existing booking policies.
These decisions may be enforced without warning at short notice before the respective event.
For those travel/ sport event agencies that pre-book tickets in accordance with the clubs normal booking policies, in advance of any such announcement, will no longer be permitted and cancelled by the respective clubs.
You acknowledge that we do not have any control over this and will not be held responsible.
For general conditions and cancellation terms, please see condition 5 ‘Terms of Payment, Variations & Cancellations’ under our standard terms & conditions.

Munich Oktoberfest beer tents
Hofbrau Tent profile
Food & drinks menu
The Hofbrau Festzelt opened its first beer tent at the Munich Oktoberfest in 1952, although Hofbrau beer had actually been served before this time in the Schottenhamel tent. This World-famous tent has the largest capacity of all the beer tents at the Oktoberfest, which caters for just over 10,000 guests. It is also the only tent that offers a standing area inside it, where revellers can dance the night away in front of the music stage (and sometimes on the stage!).
The style of the tent is decorated with enormous hop wreaths and a giant harp-playing angel called Engerl Aloisius, which have all been suspended from inside the roof of the tent. A two meter tall crown sits proudly on top of the tent that symbolises the Hofbrau logo.
Tourists from all over the world enjoy the party-like atmosphere of this less-traditional tent. On the menu, guests may choose from Hofbrau’s Oktoberfestbier and a range of Bavarian food delicacies. Music is provided by Alois Altmann und seine Isarspatzen.
Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: 9am until 11:30pm (band and bar close at 10:30pm)
Munich Oktoberfest event profile
Local breweries from Munich, host their own beer tents within the grounds of the Oktoberfest on Wirtsbudenstraße, which accommodate thousands of guests from around the World. The six breweries include: Augustina, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbrau, Lowenbrau, Paulaner and Spaten.
On the opening day of the Oktoberfest, only non-alcoholic drinks are served from 10am until 12pm. At exactly 12 noon in the Schottenhamel Festhalle, the major of Munich (Oberbürgermeister) officially kicks off the Oktoberfest by traditionally tapping the first barrel and shouting "O’zapft is!" Thereafter, a gun salute at the Bavaria Statue (within the Oktoberfest grounds) fires twelve gunshots to announce that the Oktoberfest is officially opened. From this time, all the beer tents can begin serving beer!
At exactly 12 noon on the final day of the Oktoberfest, another gun salute at the Bavaria Statue officially marks the closing of the Oktoberfest.
Live music/entertainment is provided within each tent, with hundreds of wooden benches (tables) for thousands of guests to sit at, whilst enjoying the festivities of local Bavarian culture. The beer tents are naturally crowded, especially on an evening and the atmosphere is very lively. Whist it can become noisy and chaotic, it is good fun and a great way to meet new and interesting people. From traditional music during the day to more well-known classic songs in the evening, you will find many of the revellers dancing and singing along! It is one huge party!
The basic wooden tables are located inside each tent on the main ground floor, boxes or interior balconies. Beer gardens are also available outside the tents. There are no VIP or private areas within each tent and the narrow tables can become a tight squeeze, especially for larger built guests, but it is the same for everyone and how the tables are provided within each tent. Generally, the capacity of each table needs to be occupied to satisfy the requirements of each tent. In case of unoccupied seats, tent officials and waitresses reserve the right to fill any remaining spaces. It is also worth noting that guests must be seated at a table to be served by the waitresses. Unlike pubs, there is no bar inside the beer tents. No table, no beer!
Most visitors to the Oktoberfest dress in traditional Bavarian clothes, such as lederhosen (men) and dirndls (women). Please note however that some tents may refuse access for guests wearing carnival-like costumes or masquerades/masks etc.
Food also plays an important part at the Oktoberfest. All beer tents have their own food menu, which specialise in local Bavarian cuisine such as:
Hoibads Hendl (roast chicken with spicy, crispy skin)
Schweinhaxe (pork knuckle) or Schweinsbraten (roast pork) served with fermented raw cabbage (sauerkraut) and a boiled potato-dough dumpling (Knödel) in a very hearty red wine sauce/gravy.
Ochs am Spiess (Ox) served with fermented raw cabbage (sauerkraut) and a boiled potato-dough dumpling (Knodel) in a very hearty red wine sauce/gravy.
Weisswurst (white veal/pork sausages)
Kasespatzle (similar to macaroni cheese)
Brezen (large pretzels)
Obatzda (spiced cheese and butter)
Vegetarian food is also available.
Over six million guests attend the event each year, with more than two million gallons of beer and a million half-chickens consumed by guests!
The original festival concluded on 17 October 1810 with a horse race, which became a traditional feature each year at the Oktoberfest until the 1960's. After the inaugural festival in 1810, the Bavarian Agricultural Association continued holding the festival for farmers to showcase their produce. In 1818, food and drink stalls were introduced together with the first fairground rides. The management of the Oktoberfest was taken over one year later by the local authority, who have continued to run the Oktoberfest each year ever since. The bronze Bavaria statue that sits proudly at the Oktoberfest and hosts the gun salutes on the opening and closing days of the festival was unveiled during 1850. The first roasted chicken stands were launched in 1885 and to this day, roasted chicken is still a traditional feature of the Oktoberfest. Electricity at the Oktoberfest began in 1886.
The idea of the Oktoberfest to celebrate the royal marriage was accredited to Andreas Michael Dall’Armi (Member of the Bavarian National Guard) and in 1824, Munich city awarded him with the first gold citizens medal for ‘inventing’ the Oktoberfest.
In honour of the prince and princess, the fields of the Oktoberfest were named 'Theresienwiese', which translates in English to 'Theresa’s Meadow'.

In Munich, metered taxis are cream coloured vehicles with a ‘taxi' sign on the roof. Passengers may pre-book taxi's, flag them down in the street or wait at a taxi stop.
There are various ways to travel to the Oktoberfest on Munich's extensive public transport system. These include scheduled services such as: underground/subway trains (U-Bahn), overland/regional trains (S-Bahn), trams (Strassenbahn) and buses.
Public transport services are provided by local companies called Munich Transportation Corporation (MVG) and Munich Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (MVV).
Stations and stops can be recognised by their respective signs:
U-Bahn: square or rectangular sign with blue background and the letter, U in white font.
S-Bahn: round sign with green background and the letter, S in white font.
Trams and buses: round sign with yellow background, a green circle and the letter, H in green font.
Tickets can be purchased online, digitally via MVV and MVG apps, from blue ticketing machines and ticket offices at U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations, or on buses and trams.
The same ticket is valid for all forms of public transport supplied by transport companies, MVV and MVG. Depending on your journey, tickets are therefore interchangeable between each mode of public transport.
Tickets must be validated before you embark on your journey, which may be done via machines at the station or machines on the bus or tram. Failure to do so, will invalidate your ticket.
Public transport links from Munich city centre to the Oktoberfest are extremely busy during the festival and may take much longer than you anticipate. Although extra services are provided, please allow sufficient travelling time to cover for any potential travel delays, so that you arrive on time at our designated meeting point at the Oktoberfest.
