Attendance from October/Fans Return (Merged)


Recommended Posts

So with the government saying that they would be looking to open up stadiums to around a third of capacity from October, that’s roughly 8,600 allowed into AG. 
There are likely going to be other rules around concourse size and family groups being allowed to sit together but on a basic level that’s what we are going to have to work with. 
I wonder if the amount of season tickets sold pre lockdown means we can accommodate all current season ticket applicants/holders, with some sort of buy back scheme for those who can’t attend/ don’t want to attend certain games? Or if we have already sold into double figures and someone is going to miss out. Lots of thinking for the club on this one. Let’s hope they make the right decisions with a nice early (well thought out) decision/communication.

I think rotation is the fairest way as well if we are on that kind of figure.

I don’t envy the person making the decision about who comes in if the numbers are over that value! 

I think alot of people would make the decision themselves to not take the risk so might save them a problem

Yes it was 12,000, good number all things considered.

If the restrictions are lifted enough to allow socially distancing within AG I guess SC holders Would get first priority.

I wouldn’t mind simply having two empty seats either side.The row above maybe three rows further up and the row below three rows apart.

It could certainly be done with the right planning in place.

Many season ticket holders are in a ‘bubble’ ie live in the same house so the club should be able to account for that in any social distancing as you could have groups of 6 sitting together before there needs to be a spare seats

Already resigned to the fact I won’t be going next year! Been a season ticket holder since 1985, but always buy last minute so haven’t got mine as yet. I’ll be gutted but no one way is going to be fair for everyone.

That’s true and accommodating that type of season card holders along with all the others will take quite some planning. It’s a logistical nightmare.

I think there will be enough demand for tickets that if anyone can’t go their ticket will be able to be sold back to the club to be subsequently sold on. It’s a bit of a different situation to the end of this season where nobody could go and the club would lose out on money. 
 

I mean that’s the most sensible option, whether the club will go for that....

Then you have to consider who sits around them, presumably people couldn’t sit directly in front of behind? Or maybe they could as not face to face.

That isn’t even the biggest obstacle IMO it’s the concourse, the queues, the outlets and the toilets.

A few friends are West Ham season ticket holders, they have been advised by their fan group that the initial matches will be done this way

Group A watch games 1,3,5,7 etc

Group B watch games 2,4,6,8

Seem's the easiest way in the short term. I wonder if the club will actually ask who wants to attend and offer refungs to those that don't want to attend.

I am sure there are still many people that won't feel comfortable returning yet

I sit with 7 others and have done for many years. Having a laugh and chat is the main thing that makes it worth going. Certainly in the last few seasons the actual football on display has not been the main reason!

Obviously that is going to not be possible for the foreseeable, which will greatly affect the match day experience. Will wait to see what the proposals are.

Surely it's easier than that. My wife and I both have season tickets, so if she doesn't come I can go to all the games?

Club in a no win situation. However they decide to allocate the limited capacity there will be plenty who moan as it does suit them.

Its a crap situation so just accept you're probably not going to get exactly what you want.

I think everyone wants to watch every game. Nobody is of the opinion they are going to get that at the moment. 
That doesn’t mean the club can’t make a fair decision and communicate it quickly, unlike the situation recently where we were the one of, if not the last clubs in the Championship to communicate to fans. And even the communication was ‘missing the love’ as JL said himself.

Don't see how they can't offer refund if you can't go when you want if you have a season ticket

Apparently because you acknowledge their terms which they've stipulated upfront by making payment for any who still haven't made full payment, at least thats what a friend told me

You can't, you throw off the separation of seats in the rows in front and behind. You can have the 6 seats next to each other with gaps but you wouldn't be allowed 6 in a row next to each other. Guys in charge of the stadium have said in news interviews they've already drawn up plans for which seats can be used, factors like this would make that impossible.

That would mean they would only be locking out 30,000 at the Mem. :D

Seriously though, if that applies to all the leagues Rovers would be in big trouble opening the stadium etc for 2,000 attendances

We probably have more stewards than that
