Problems with the club’s online ticket system have prompted the club to postpone proposed walk-up ticket price increases for the first three games of the season.
Vale were planning to increase the cost of tickets for fans who paid on the day rather than those who book in advance. But because the club’s online ticket facility is still not available, the club think it is fair to postpone the price increases.
A club statement said: “Due to the online ticketing being unavailable, there will be no increase in match prices for the first three games of the season.

“Anyone who is exchanging 10 match package vouchers or are buying season tickets can do so from the windows in the club shop.
“We would also like to remind season ticket holders that they can collect their card and 3 tickets today and tomorrow between 9-5 from the new club shop and from the old ticket office between 11.30 – 2pm this Saturday before the match.
“We recommend all supporters to buy tickets in advance. When buying on a match day we advise supporters to pay by cash to minimise queuing time.”
It’s fair to say that Vale have not had much joy with online ticketing so far. Last season’s deal with Ticketmaster was cancelled due to high running costs, while technical problems have dogged ticket sales through the summer.
