2023 UCI Cycling World Championships /Ticketmaster Sport sell tickets for the 2023 UCI World Championships as an agent on behalf of the organiser.

When you’re booking via 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships, whether it’s online, via the venue box office or over the phone, we will always be sure to give you a clear breakdown of exactly what charges are involved. In accordance with the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) requirements we will ensure that any fee or charge levied on top of the face value of the ticket is stated clearly at critical points during the purchase process, and when advertising ticket prices.

The total exit price is made up as follows:

Face Value Price

This is the base cost of your ticket, set by the event organiser 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships and are based on the costs involved in presenting the event. When a ticket is sold the total face value is passed to 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships.

Booking Fee

An administration fee is levied on all tickets sold via the Ticketmaster Sport retail system, our contact centre or 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships venue box office. This charge is intended to cover the running costs of our ticketing operations, and it is applied to each ticket sold regardless of whether the payment is made by cash, cheque, debit card, credit card, bank transfer or any other means. A payment handling fee is included within the administration fee regardless of the payment method.

Our partnership with Ticketmaster Sport provides a comprehensive ticketing solution for buyers, which amongst other things include:

  • A comprehensive Box Office service on-site at 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships venues supported by a satellite box office at venues (TBC)
  • A specialised contact centre, predominantly handling accessible sales, group bookings and event-related enquiries. 
  • A website service for buying tickets 

The booking fee levied is competitively priced and determined by the costs of operating the ticketing service.

You will have to pay a Booking Fee (10% per ticket). A Transaction Fee (£2.50 per order) will then be applied to the entire transaction (regardless of the number of tickets purchased) depending on the method of fulfilment that you have selected.

2023 UCI Cycling World Championships have ensured that the Booking Fee is the same, regardless of (a) the method of payment used, and/or (b) the channel via which tickets are purchased (i.e., on the internet, in person at the Box Office, or telephonically).

The regulations can be found at: www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012/3110/made

If you have any queries regarding fees please contact the Ticketing Customer Service Team

We want to make sure that everyone gets a fair chance to buy tickets.

The ticket limit is decided by 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships. It usually applies per person, per credit card – sometimes, if it’s expected to be popular it may also be per household. Please be sure to look out for this – you can’t book more than the limit in any one transaction, but unfortunately, we can’t stop you from making a second booking.

It’s not that easy to get around the system though; if we find that someone’s booked more tickets than they’re allowed, they may well cancel some or all of their tickets, without notice.

We want to make sure that as many fans as possible get the chance to book. When you select your seats, you’re holding those tickets while you go through the checkout process, so no one else can access them.

The amount of time you have can vary depending on how busy the website is, but we always make sure there’s enough time to fill in your details and check the information carefully before paying for your tickets.

When a popular event goes on sale there can sometimes be thousands of people all trying to buy tickets at the same time. With fans booking over the phone and online, Ticketmaster can process hundreds of bookings at once – so sometimes they can go quickly. For example, if 500 fans all log on to buy 4 tickets each…that’s 2,000 tickets gone in seconds!

If you’re unlucky with getting tickets when they first go on sale, we always advise to check back to our website nearer the day of the show – there’s always the chance that more tickets could be released once the stage layout has been confirmed.

…a few minutes after the event goes on sale?

When customers find available tickets online, or through any of the other access points, those tickets are actually reserved while the customer considers the purchase. During that period, which lasts for only a few minutes, no one else can view or purchase those tickets. If the customer decides not to buy the tickets, they are “released” and become available to other purchasers. So, if a customer is looking at 10th row centre seats and decides not to buy, those seats become available for another customer.

…days after the event goes on sale?

2023 UCI Cycling World Championships may release more tickets for sale as the event date approaches. This happens for several reasons such as a) A client group may no longer need the tickets that were held when the event originally went on sale, or b) Once the event area is set up, the venue has a better idea about which seats are obstructed, or c) Sometimes events are so popular that even seats with a restricted view are released for sale!

Additionally, sometimes a customer attempts to buy tickets but their credit card is declined. If we are unable to contact the customer to secure a valid credit card or billing address, 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships may cancel the order and release the tickets for sale. Tickets may also be re-released if a customer does not follow 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships published ticket limits or other terms of use.
