But how many were left for the "plebs" out of the 575 for Barrow and they still struggled to sell out???

The 575 could be a net figure though ?

No, that’s their standard away allocation. The stewards told us it was what Carlisle got.

Read elsewhere that the club have listened to complaints from Exeter - a member of staff turned up this morning walking down the queue and recording how many people were buying, and another staff member said enough tickets would be available for everyone, so fair play Vale, that stuff is what I took issue with over the Exeter tickets. They've listened to us, nice one!

I heard that from someone early in the queue.

An hour and 25 minutes later and I've got my tickets for the Hamil End!

Yay!

1hr and 40 for me, hope revamping the online ticketing situation is high on list of priorities over the summer.

Barrow was Barrow.

Exeter was Exeter.

Swindon is Swindon

Different things riding on each game, different demands for tickets.

There is a big chunk of diehard fans who are forced into panic queueing and like the great bog roll crisis of 2020, it snowballs.

The system is sub optimal. There is no two ways about it. In 2022, queueing in person like it’s 1954 is an unrealistic expectation for the club to put on its supporters who have day jobs and families. The technology is out there, we have to strive for better.

I’m extremely fortunate to have friends who have helped me out enormously this season.

Got mine for Hamil, took about 35 minutes including having to reset my password. Between putting the first one in the basket and the second the ticket number had changed by 24 so sales are proceeding steadily. The key is patience. Click once at each stage and then wait.

I was just about to edit that post, I've consequently seen that Morecambe got less than 4000 😳

That was limited due to Covid wasn't it? 

 

Wycombe for example this season have got 20k with the possibility of 30k.

How much queueing do you have to do for your tickets out of interest?

If there is a privileged group that get tickets before everyone else this should be advertised. Season ticket holders should also be in some form of privileged group. Understandly demand will still out weight supply but that's when a loyalty scheme comes in to play and ballots can be conducted to determine who is guaranteed without the need to miss a day a work and camp out all night.

It's not that people shouldn't get a priority over others, it's the current process that its done in which boils peoples pee.

Ah yes of course, that makes more sense. Forgot about all that. Be raging to reach Wembley again but you can't go because of lockdown rules.

Loads left so don't let it stress you out, you won't miss out today unless you're after 6 people sat directly together in a specific row. What stage are you at with it, countdown timer or individual seat selection or?
