Season ticket holders have until Saturday to obtain/make arrangements which seems fair for them. To make it fair to others they should sell 1 to every supporter who needs 1 on Saturday before the match and then make the surplus left after the match available at the ground and online to those who need extra.

Would be one way of doing it but logistically if someone has made the match but their friend can't make it then it would be harsh not to let friend pick up two tickets etc.

How would you feel if you were behind moodymonica buying a fair few and they ran out? There is not a perfect way to manage this but I believe they will try to make it as fair as possible

And if they asked for tickets for their 15 other mates, and a lot of others did, and then you came to the front of the queue and you couldn't get one because they had sold out?

I think it's reasonable to purchase 2 tickets, but shouldn't be allowed to get more.

I guess the club would need to advise of a limit if there is one but at the moment nothing has been mentioned.

As I said I would have no issue with some picking up a couple of tickets but where do you draw the line 3,4,5,6..etc.

I would be disappointed if they were all sold out after I queued but I guess this is the chance you take, if it sells out quickly then we are going to have some fans unhappy.

We struggled to fill HP for the final 2 games of last season & crowds on average have been lower this season. I'm not convinced we'll sell out either of the games (fingers crossed we win the first one of course!).

why would i 'run out'.
ffs there should be at least 800 based on this years attendances left over.
should the club just sell one each and then only have a crowd of 1200
what a clown
im glad you're not running the club.
first come first served.
one of the people I'll buy fir is a season ticket holder but he can't make it.

Shawry obviously agreed with me but as I said there is not a perfect way to do this. If your ST friend wants to pm charlie I believe she was able to sort something out for rufusuk

First dibs should be given to those volunteers who turn up to fork the pitch at 09:00am Saturday. Respect to those heroes!
