Social Update

John is in touch with Alex Williams with a view to getting Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta to the next Legends Night.


Loyalty Points Update

Firstly, here is how loyalty points are allocated:

Branch meetings

5 points for attending (getting there whilst the meeting is in progress, not turning up afterwards to watch the match!)

5 points if you are at the match on the day of a meeting (provided your ticket has been purchased through the branch or if you are a season ticket holder attending a home match on the day of a meeting)

15 points for attending the Annual General Meeting (held in the close season)

Legends’ Night

20 points for attending Legends’ Night

10 points for each non-Mid Sussex Blues member you bring


2 points for when a ticket is requested, and the loyalty points system is implemented but a member does not have sufficient points to qualify for a ticket

Committee Members

Members of the Mid Sussex Blues committee receive priority allocation of tickets and therefore do not participate in the loyalty points system.
