Exeter Tickets

We really need to get out of this terrible divison with ramshackle grounds and bus stop like away capacities. Our attendance yesterday including an away side who brought bugger all was still bigger than the total sell out capacity of 6 clubs in this league.

Could part of the reason that Exeter have done this be.

 

To get a ticket you need to register with them and give your details (ie Name & Address)They can then (possibly) TRY to point the finger at fans should their be any trouble? But that would be pointless as there would be no guarantee that fans are actually in their allocated seats.Even then how would this work in a standing area? 

Do they want to put (Vale) fans on their database for some stupid reason?

There must be some logical reason for them to do this.Its just can't be a simple mistake from their ticket office.

Trying to cut out the middle man so they pocket the money themselves instead of vale taking a cut for selling the tickets?

I'm not certain how they'd be able to increase the allocation TBH and even if they could I'm sure the demand from their own fans would be massive.

Its been on a number of peoples minds that this would be huge with access to tickets difficult and I hope that it remains so over the remainder of the season.  I'm hoping that we don't need to go there needing a win to ensure that we get something at their expense.

Would make for a great season finale though. 
It’s a big stand down the side so they could potentially gives us more there but like you say you would expect high demand from the home fans. I’m sure the chairman will do everything possible to make sure it’s a sellout either way.

They could sell part of the away area and only supply Vale with a minimum amount. Quite unusual I think, Vale could do the same the next time they visit, but Exeter are unlikely to ever need 4000 tickets except for a play-off game.

I think any idea of Exeter increasing our allocation is fanciful. 

They are likely to be in 3 scenarios. 

1. Already up so sell out celebrations 

2. Need a result for automatic 

3. Need a result for play offs 

Not a chance we'll get more.

Hanlon's razor - never put down to malice what can be attributed to incompetence. Don't imagine there's some evil master plan, they've just cocked up.

The stand cannot be built the whole length of the ground because Exeter do not have the land. There is a railway line that runs behind the stand and it does not run parallel to it so it cuts in a bit towards the corner. 

Fair. I wonder why they wouldn't open the other half as a crammed in open standing terrace then instead of just wasted space?

They make a small percentage on each ticket they sell
