Northampton 1st game. Tickets


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm not going but seems to be a general shambles around the sale. No online sales? Are we in the 20th century?

The whole concept of traipsing down to VP is nice for some who have the time I guess, but an absolute faff/inconceivable for a lot. Assume it's to get people to turn up for the away kit thing. Queuing 1 hour+ for tickets for a League 2 game is daft. I was hoping I'd never have to do it again after Salford in 19/20.

That's not to mention an hour's notice on a weekday and not enough people on the phones. Classic Vale. Get online ticket buying set up, ideally with a loyalty scheme points system for ST holders + regular buyers (as has been mooted for ages); hire staff to focus on phone sales for obviously busy games; give several days notice for when sales will open so people can play ahead.

That was a complete shambles by Vale. We need to get this sort of thing sorted. It's not hard.

Why cant we buy online? Why cant we phone?

Why just randomly decide they are on sale today?

And another, why does the shop have to shut for about 3 days every time we have a new top?

I’m not going as I don’t want to sit on a coach with 55 others, but wouldn’t have been able to get to the ticket office today as I’ve been at a wedding all day.

I see the moaning and groaning has commenced! 😂 

Obviously warming up for when the real action starts. Moaning about the Manager, team selection, formation and performances coming to this forum soon. 😎

No one answering the phone, no option to buy online, an hour's notice before the tickets go on sale.... 

Evidently no thought whatsoever for those of us who are season ticket holders but don't live in the immediate vicinity of Vale Park. 🤬

I'll have my gripe , sorry.

Was in Liverpool today on a stag do, my fellow season ticket holder ( son ) was at work until 18.00. 

So the impromptu announcement caused much kerfuffle. 

Thankfully due to a friend I've managed to get two . 

Very poor from Vale this rapid announcement, hope that everyone has managed to get one.

Suitably unimpressed, thought these days of p**s poor communication were a thing of the past

I would imagine they didn't arrive until Saturday morning and they released them at short notice so that people coming to get shirts wouldn't have to come back Monday. As for the ticket system covid stopped the planned upgrade to that non the less it was still shambolic

Can not understand vale. The cue yesterday was mad, Northampton, Sheff Wed, and season tickets all on sale at the same time from one office. Carole and Kevin were standing  talking to fans. Does not give me a lot of hope .... up and brewery come to mind.

The Vale app quotes tickets available on the day at £2 extra at Northampton so not expecting a sell-out?

Does it give Saturdays lottery numbers?

We have sold about 700 so the 900 will be gone today and then go on general sale tomorrow morning with the extra 350. Can't see many leaving it until the day...

Would make more sense as ground entry rules not yet announced.

Got ours just after 10 this morning. Staff checked and said we’d sold about half.
