Caps are allocated based on attendance - not when tickets are purchased. For home games 2 caps are added to ESC and ESTC accounts within a few days of attending an England friendly or qualifier. In order for caps to be allocated correctly, supporters will need to assign their fan number to their ticket at the point of purchase in the priority members sale(s). Once that ticket is then scanned at the turnstiles, your attendance is recorded and will be updated onto your membership within a few days of the match.
Travel Club members who attend England away match friendlies and qualifiers, will have their caps added within a few days of the game taking place.
Caps are only awarded for tickets purchased directly from The FA and no caps are awarded for attending tournament fixtures.
