Bournemouth Membership Guide

Ten years ago, AFC Bournemouth were on the cusp of being eliminated from the football league entirely. Fast forward to the present day, and Bournemouth is set for its highest-ever Premier League finish.

Under Spanish boss Andoni Iraola, the Cherries have played some of the best football in the Premier League and have become a team that football fans love to watch.

Despite now being an established force in the Premier League, Bournemouth still plays its games in the smallest stadium in the league, and in order to get tickets for Bournemouth home games, you need to act fast!

With the Vitality Stadium having a capacity of just over 11,000 fans, the best way to secure your seat for any Premier League Bournemouth home game is with a season ticket. However, if the cost of a season ticket isn’t for you, then there are other ways that you can get hold of a ticket, and we will explain all of this below.

What official AFC Bournemouth Membership packages are there?

Unlike almost every other Premier League club, Bournemouth’s membership packages are exclusively aimed at younger fans, and at the time of publishing, there aren’t any adult membership packages available. However, that is set to change when Bournemouth kick off its new Global Membership for the start of the 2024/2025 season.

The first adult membership in its history, here is what is on offer.

Global Membership: Everything you need to know 

Due to start in time for the kickoff for the 2024/2025 season, AFC Bournemouth’s Global Membership is due to cost £45 for the season and contains the following membership benefits.

With little adult membership packages available, how do I get a Bournemouth ticket?

Although Bournemouth doesn’t have many adult membership packages, if you aren’t a season ticket holder, you can still buy tickets for Bournemouth games by registering on Bournemouth’s official ticketing portal that is hosted on their website.

Each Bournemouth Premier League home game will have a dedicated number of tickets that will be made available for general resale. In order to buy one of these tickets, you will need to register and log in.

Tickets are awarded based on the number of ‘Cherries Points’ you have acquired. In order to start earning Cherries Points, you may need to watch some lower-level matches, such as early round FA and Carabao Cups or academy and women’s matches. Trying to secure your ticket with Cherries Points is certainly competitive, so you will need to act quickly to secure your seat.

If I receive a ticket, will I get to choose where I sit?

Tickets will be available for every stand within the Vitality Stadium, but the number on offer will be limited. If you have a preferred stand where you want to watch the action, you will need to act quickly to ensure your seats are in your preferred area of the stadium.
