Villa Away (2nd ticket release?)

Recommended Posts

Is there any chance of a second allocation of tickets being released after we've sold out the initial allocation of 2,100.

 

I reckon we could sell 4,000+ here and as it's such a big ground I'm surprised they haven't yet given us anymore tickets.

From day one, it was our “full allocation”.

Don't understand why either QPR or Villa is final allocation. Crazy. 

I can understand QPR. We’ve had 10% of their capacity, so no issue there. 

How can Villa justify giving such a small percentage of their capacity..?!

But surely they should have to adhere to league rules..? Is the rule 10% for league games..? (I’m never sure)

I’m pretty sure the police can overrule football league rules.

I’m pretty sure other clubs in our league get given an allocation of around 2,700. Granted this is still under 10% of the capacity.

AFAIK its to do with them believing they can sell out. More power to them if they can, but its just depriving a revenue stream if they can't.

The Villa allocation is reduced on the advice of West Midlands Police. 

Theyve still got a bee in their bonnet from 1988.

Surely not without a damn good, specific reason..? 

We have no history with Villa. There is no way we should be getting less than the usual.

Sorry, 3700

It’s a minimum allocation rule. 

We generally give away fans the whole Atyeo, so that’s fine. 

Giving us 2,100 in a 40k+ capacity is a complete joke!

For QPR it was because they sold their adult tickets as a two for one Black Friday deal. They wanted to give their fans the most opportunity to fill the ground and take up this offer so they gave them the lower tier and us the upper, usually away fans can have both tiers and there are no home fans in this end( I think that’s the right way round).

100% down to WMP, us and Birmingham are the only sides given this allocation, everyone else gets the full allocation of 2970.

The same happens at St Andrews, only us and Villa get restricted numbers

There are some here that are very proud we have a reputation that causes these kind of issues.

I’m sorry but we’re not in the same league as Millwall and Leeds when it comes to hooligan fans

But we are not far off these clubs and are certainly seen as a threat and a following to 'watch out' for by forces up and down the country, believe me.

this can't be true, surely. @JulieH

I am not aware why there is a smaller allocation for Bristol City fans for this match .

the qpr situation has been correctly identified as the reason for a smaller than normal allocation due to the Black Friday sale of home tickets.

Bollocks. They only allocated us 1.7k in 2016 as well and we sold out in days. Next season (if we play them) will be the same again, only us and Millwall get the lower allocation.
