Already fewer than 500 tickets left for sale (11pm Tuesday night).
The link to buy online worked very easily, so well done to our commercial & IT people.

So it's not all ticket but it might be all ticket? Where did you get that 500 tickets left from?

Yes for the first question and the online numebr available on the second question, however not all tickets were made available online so it's not a case of less than 500 left currently.

I purchased my tickets Yesterday and the available remaining standing tickets at the time was around 900, this is now 469.

Available seated tickets I think was about 360 and this is now 32.

I doubt all would’ve been listed and more may be added when general sales opens up.

Yikes. Anyone wanting to go better get a shift on. Looks like it'll be a sell out (whatever that number is after segregation etc).

At least I can watch it after work thanks to BT. Haven't quite gotten used to that concept yet :mrgreen:

I think these numbers are in relation to numbers for 500 club season ticket holders and dfsg members. What is left will be added to general tickets which go on sale tomorrow.

There was a long queue at the Dolphin Centre this morning, I'd be surprised if it doesn't sell out very quickly.

I got there about 10 30 and l guess at least 50 people ahead of me so certainly selling well.Someone in front of me was not a season ticket holder or DFCSG member and was politely told to try again tomorrow. Shows the benefit of being a member. Would urge all supporters to join and show their commitment to the club.

I doubt if they'll be any tickets left by tomorrow. Perhaps the club should have raised ticket prices, like some clubs do when they have big matches, especially if we know that demand would exceed supply.

We want floating fans to start coming along regularly, so it's no good pissing them off by making them feel the club's exploiting them

I think you're right and keeping prices reasonable reflects that we're a fan owned club. If I remember rightly we've been really cheesed off in the past when prices have been raised for our visit. Brilliant response and I think Saturday has raised enthusiasm for the replay whatever the view/facilities at Blackwell.

Pete we are a fan owned club why on earth would we want to exploit our loyal fans and deter potential new fans by raising prices. Are you deliberately trying to wind people up or are you really that dense ?

Usually he is trying to wind people up.

Of course we couldn’t raise prices anyway as they were already agreed with Walsall for the initial match.

The club could've raised prices, but any potential extra profit would surely have been at least partially offset by the cost of the massive cup of cold sick they would've had to shell out for at the same time.

Walsall are now selling the 73 seating tickets and 250 standing they have been given. Can't see them selling anywhere near that.

It makes no sense to raise prices, and loose those floaters moving forwards, bizzare thinking really.... What’s the next home game after the replay, the Gainsborough trinity game?

Could be a good opportunity to play some good football, get a win and capitalise on the floating support. Although far too many what ifs.

I’m in hospitality which is totally full I’ve been told, that’s the first time this season. TBH when it’s that full it’s oftern difficult to see from the balcony. However who cares for this game as atmosphere should be cracking.

Are the numbers the same as usual ? Just wondered if any of the cameras or commentators would be on the balcony.

You have to agree any replay prices before the original tie so that no exploitation takes place. FA rules.

But if that rule hadn't been in place you'd have been happy for the club to stiff its fans/owners?

I don't think a rise of £2 would have harmed anybody & it would have brought in more funds into the coffers. It's ok for Premiership sides to do it week in & week out by much more than £2, but not for other clubs?

As a matter of fact, no, I don't think it's ok for Prem teams to do it. It might have brought more money in (no guarantee though as the extra income might be offset by a resultant smaller gate) but that few hundred quid would be far outweighed by the ill will it would cause. Maybe you'd be more comfortable following a team like West Auckland.

I don't know any Premier League clubs that do that? Just about every club i'm aware of publicises prices at the start of the season. It would be rightly called out as greed there.

If people want to cough up 2 quid extra, they can swell club coffers by buying a programme, a 50/50 ticket or chucking a couple of quid in the ground improvement fund. I'd expect those will all take in a higher money from a bumper crowd anyway, and it doesn't need to be done via deception.

We're a fan owned club, for the fans. That means we don't treat fans like mugs.

Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
