Gutted I can't make this game, but at least one of my lads will be able to use my 500 club ticket instead.

My tickets don't have a stub on, is that what everyone else's is like?

Usually, when you hand the ticket over the club keep the stub and hand the ticket back. My tickets don't have this so assume I have to hand the whole ticket over? As suggested earlier in the thread, I would like to keep hold of the ticket, especially as it'll be my son's first game seeing his team play in Darlington but it would appear that we will be handing over the whole ticket.

2 per person would make sense and would also surely speed things up from a volunteer perspective - sell the tickets in half the time, less hours of volunteers needed.

I assume as it's all ticket, they don't need to collect stubs to keep track of the attendance. They know how many will be there minus a handful who buy a ticket but can't make it for last minute reasons.

I prefer the one ticket per member, as otherwise members could potentially miss out. I would have no issue with someone taking 6 membership cards to get for their pals tho

Was a pleasure to serve everyone last night, that queue was huge when I walked in but due to the great organisation of the volunteer staff it went like clockwork

I presume there is nothing stopping people who want more than one ticket from re-joining the back of the queue?

If true it's great news, although to be expected.

Does anyone know how many Halifax have sold? And is there a cut off date, so we can sell the remainder?

Someone said on twitter that they've sold 400; expected to sell another 100!

Good job we didn't give them anymore than we had to then. Wonder if they still think they require more than 600?!

Not sure how much you can read into a twitter expectation - it is completely unfounded ultimately. They could just as easily have demand for 20 or 300 more it's pretty impossible to tell.

It wasn't a twitter expectation, whatever one of those is.

They announced on their official website that they were only getting 600 tickets even though they knew they needed more, and had asked for more.

This.

And in their ignorance they announced in the article that they would be selling these tickets on the 17th, 19th & 20th, clearly expecting the tickets to be sold-out within those dates.

They made another announcement this morning stating that tickets would also be on sale today & tomorrow, with half their allocation remaining. :oops:

They have sold 400 and expecting to sell 100 more taken from twitter? I am not sure how twitter knows 100 more will be sold just seems a bit made up so wouldn't read too much into it.

I doubt they will sell 600 but I have no idea - 400 tickets at this point is quite good going.

Being a season ticket holder I wonder if the club could print some souvenir tickets as a momento

I suppose the tickets Halifax have been unable to sell will just go to waste as there won't be any time/chance to make them available to home fans now.
