There should be mate but not many at all. There's limited availability in the Railway Paddock which will probably be sold out before Monday but I'd imagine there would be quite a few tickets left in the Bycars. However, so far ticket sales there have been pretty healthy in comparison to other games this season.

 

If you want to make sure you get a ticket before Monday, you can use the club's ticket website to buy a ticket in advance. This would mean you would either have to print your ticket or have it on your phone to scan at the turnstile. Here is the link for the club's ticket website:

I use this service mate, very easy to use, print off or just open up the email they send you and it gets scanned at the turnstile…..

Does anyone know whether or not the Covid capacity set for the ground by the club of 10,000 max is still in force? It would explain why so many seats are greyed out.

All covid restrictions have ended.

If a seat is grey it means a ticket has been sold to the seat or it is occupied by a season ticket holder

Obviously with the expected crowd it would be silly to rock up at 2-55  and expect to walk in.

I don't finish work until 3oclock so expect to jog in with a sweat on!

Incidentally FTP9 I would love it to be the case that greyed out is ST or sold, but I can't see that the bottom two blocks of Bycars adjacent to Lorne Street are as good as full unless the club have given out freebies to local schools. Which wouldn't surprise me.

It was noticeable how the increased occupancy of the Bycars lately has acted as a vocal link bringing the Lorne Street and Paddock to sing in unison.

Roll on Monday.

Either way mate, should be a 10,000 plus crowd and I can't wait for it. Should be a cracking game.

I missed the Oldham game but I was in the Railway during the Sutton match. I thought the atmosphere was much improved and for the first 20 minutes, the noise was incredible. I don't know if it was like that for the rest of the ground but it surely made a difference. Also, as you say, the Bycars has been noticeably fuller which is nice to see.

Those two blocks are the family area since the family stand closed...

Pett on the bench would be useful, as Charsley, Garrity and Taylor as a 3 is light and Taylor is slowly coming back. I take it Walker will be out, which is the basis for my concern and planning therein.

Just read capacity is 19052

Just read a previous piece from Colin Garlick in 2021 in which he is alleged to have said the "grounds current safety certificate is for 14,000" which obviously includes the hamil end.

During 2021 Covid restrictions will have applied, no?

After installation of the last 1500 seats into LS, the current actual capacity is reported to be 20,552.

That is the number of seats, none of the additional seats meet sports stadium safety standards .

Years ago it was reckoned that once the Lorne Street was completed we’d have over 22,000. The 14k Wolves fixture a few years back saw the stadium feel pretty full, but there was plenty of room in the Bycars. Is the family stand even open these days?

It wasn`t long ago that our ground was thought too big, surely progress that now its capacity is in question.  I would think if needed on a regular basis 20,000 could be achieved. Having an away end with 4,500 capacity is an asset to achieving large crowds,  since attracting 10,000 home fans on a regular basis has not been achieved since the 60s. Would be great to return to those days.

If the Newport game is the decider for promotion and it looks set to sell out (to whatever the safety certificate covers) I wonder if we could get permission from the police to have a proportion of the Hamil for home fans if they only bring their usual 3-400?

Assume we’d have to install a barrier inside the concourse which would be the issue maybe?

When the Lorne Street was open terracing in the mid 90s the stadium capacity was 23,000. There's no way a finished all-seated Lorne Street would have got us anywhere near 22K.
