Yeah that’s fair enough. As I have a ST I’m properly out of touch with potd prices but I know they’re a lot different these days!!

I decided against a ST this season due to getting up @ 3am for work, therefore not to keen on evening games, getting married in December and we were outright awful last season ..............been to everyone bar two so far:doh:

Makes sense - might help fill the ground for those home games for which tickets can be purchased. Expensive way to get a Man Utd ticket though.

It does say for tickets already purchased.

This season I have 2 games under my Bristol sport account, Burton at home and Cardiff at home, however I am not currently a member. If I was to buy the membership now would those games I have been to count towards the magical 4 for the united game? I have also been to the 3 cup games at home this season although my ST holder friend has always bought them on his account and I normally drive and buy him a pint when we are there. I am assuming there is no way to prove that I actually went to those games also?

This seems like very good effort by the club. Never is a perfect answer for sure, but reducing capacity, which will cost some dosh, to squeeze in a few more City fans shows real positive intent. 9/10.

Only thing for the future for me, and it has already been said, is there seems no logic to not count away sales made through the club on a par with home ones. Now, holding my hand up I cannot get to this game anyway because of work, but it would have affected me, bumping me down a couple of priority scales. 

Good effort overall.

I'm just gutted that as a member, it's only your history of buying 'home' tickets for 2017/18 that counts.  If it included away games I'd fall into Priority 2 category :sad26:

i think a lot of exiles are in a similar position. Can't disagree even though disappointed.

Bar BS3 i've got to hand it to you - I've never seen someone so devoted to discussing and debating ticket priority/pricing in the run up to the game as you have been for this United match! :laughcont:

Well spotted! Unfortunately, most of it has been responding to people who were saying it would be £40-50 a ticket or that membership should be given higher priority than half season ticket. It’s been a long, hard, painful process to make them (try) to realise that they were talking shite..!

Similarly its the same cost as it would be to watch gold tiered championship games for any non season ticket holder. Simple supply and demand which I'm surprised to see so many people getting annoyed at, we wouldn't fill the ground for the other cup games so offered incentives to get more in.

I think the club have got the pricing and allocation spot on.  The obly downside is the lost seating due to segregation, but a suppose it's a fair price to pay for giving a greater allocation to City fans.

Also encourages a few to buy half season tickets and a few tickets for upcoming games which should swell thecrowds a bit for the rest of the season - good move.

Fair to guess that tickets will hit general sale anyway? If just to our lot, we cannot have enough STs and members to fill the thing anyway. The only unknown to me is the numbers of 'associate members' through holding Rugby ST holders kind of thing.

Happy with the process. About as fair as could be done. 

Prices a bit high. This is going to be a mammoth money-spinner. I bet the board can't believe this season!

I'm guessing the away games not being included and the non-members not being included are because of difficulty identifying them?

STs and members buying home game tickets I guess it's all online and easy for them to action. 

Regardless I'll be watching it on Sky due to an operation the day before! :sad26:

its not the FA cup!

You’re right, I slipped up there, but i’ still think it would be better and safer all round to have allowed them the whole end. I imagine our police and stewarding costs will be more with the decision to put home fans in the Atyeo.

Talk of mammoth money spinners...

I assume (but might be wrong) that similar to the FA Cup, the league get a cut of the gate receipts with the rest being split between the home and away sides.

Would go so way to explaining the prices.

I can't imagine they're expecting much trouble so hopefully won't be over policed.

Doubt Man U fans will come to a Championship team to cause trouble, and we're the underdogs so I'd hope our fans would react with humour to a loss. 

(But yes I think our players will give it their all so fingers crossed!)

May have to look when they go off sale. Hopefully after, can't really legislate paying lump sum when things are tight as they are.

You mean gold pricing that fans pay to watch some championship teams? And its 45% each team.

Great to see United fans on twitter absolutely furious about their allocation.

Completely the right decision to have extra City fans in the Atyeo. Pleasantly surprised the club decided to do that.

Can't say that I'm surprised by the ticket prices or the sales arrangements. If I was running the club I'd see this as the perfect opportunity to shift half-season tickets, and to sell tickets to a very attractive fixture at full price. Giving a higher priority to members who use their membership to buy tickets to home matches seems fair enough.

What I think the clubs lacks, though, and had in the past, is a loyalty scheme which recognises away ticket purchases. It seems tough on exiles who follow us all over the country but can't easily get to Bristol.

FYI, @AdamB tells me he aims to put together a set of FAQs in due course and will look through this thread to see what questions are indeed being frequently asked.

So it makes sense to add any questions you have to this thread. Hopefully Adam's FAQs will then provide the answer for you.

My only gripe is why my Lansdown wing ticket is £39 but a Dolman central ticket is only £37 and with a far better view

The Dolman Ticket will be worth £39 by the time you get out after the game

Really? Whilst I’ll still pay it, £33 for the same ticket that was £15 vs Palace seems more than a little steep.

I get the maximise revenue thing and I know that they’d have sold it out even at £50 a ticket but is a greater than 100% increase on the prior round really justifiable?

 

YES

For everyone complaining about the price, if you're not a season ticket holder do you plan on complaining about the price of the tickets for every other gold category game?

I am annoyed it's based on home games.

I've been to Watford, Brentford and Fulham away, and only Burton at home. 4 games, but somehow this makes me less of a fan who went to 4 home games?

Doesn't make sense.

@AdamB can you please explain this decision.

 

If you purchased 4 home tickets and are a member your priority would be ‘decent’.

Anyone got a handle on the numbers in each category? Just wondering how many might go on general sale, if any?

Wonder what the black market price is likely to be.

I would hope, with the way they have set ticket priority, that everyone with a ticket will be a regular City fan and there will be NO black market.

Plymouth game was £11, Stoke was £13 and Palace £15.

Add £31 for the United game, and that's 4 home games - three against premier league sides for seventy quid.

You can't argue with that.

Does anyone have any input on what the South Stand singing section sale procedure might be? In particular, me and my mate picked random seats when getting our season tickets because its unreserved, so the seats stated on our season tickets are not next to each other. Will we have to stick to those seats, or will we be able to select seats next to each other? For us it's not a particularly big issue as we are actually only a row away so will kind of still be together, but I would think there will be others in a similar situation but with stated seats much further away.

Maximise revenue. Maximise Home ticket availability and spot on priority levels. 

Spot on. Club has done very well there to make sure no Johnny come latelys get a ticket. Manc fans moaning on twitter about reduced capacity for them. **** um

I don't understand the rugby st holders getting 2nd priority ? A different sport all together !!!!! Ridiculous. 

Presumably because that's what was advertised when it was sold, no one complained when it was the other games. I imagine the club may re-examine this in future.
