Wasn't ticketmaster - it was some tin pot site. I seem to remember somebody found a way you could skip all the bits at the start and buy tickets even when you weren't elligible etc

I am not a season ticket holder nor a club red member (The later not through want of trying)  but have only missed two home games this season.

As long as you're in the first 70,000 you should be OK.

10 each, that would be an extremely strange way of doing it.  Can't see that happening.

Might as well just put them on general sale straight away, there will be enough tickets for everyone whatever the arrangements.

I hope this is a wind up!

I thought that this was one of the things that helped kill the atmosphere in the play offs (i believe it was 6 each). By the time the tickets went on general sale there was hardly anything left on the bottom tier, which is where you would expect any singing to start, and it was filled with friends of season ticket holders who, in many cases, were day trippers.

In my view the more tickets available when they go on general sale the better if we are seriouse about creating an atmosphere.


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: Summerof69 on Monday, February 13, 2012, 20:49:41
It was 6 each two years ago. I only need 3 anyway, for 3 ST holders !!


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: LittleRed on Monday, February 13, 2012, 20:57:16
I would have thought as well that if we sold all our allocation we would get given more as chesterfield have only been given 21000 so there should be plenty of capacity to sell extra seats if needed. oh well the agonising wait continues!


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: Posh Red on Monday, February 13, 2012, 21:04:53
Can't see if being 10 per Season Ticket.

Based on the number of ST holders we have there wouldn't be enough tickets for 10 each.
Although to be fair most season ticket holders won't buy anywhere near that many anyway.

Last time we bought 10 tickets between 5 ST holders


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: fittons_coaching_badge on Monday, February 13, 2012, 21:10:33

Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: ronnie21 on Monday, February 13, 2012, 21:10:56
As to the price, understand between £26 and £60, with cheaper prices for concessions.  And I don't expect it to be anything like 10 tickets per season ticket, more like 4.

There are three of us with three ST, I guess we will just use one ST to get all three Wembley tickets.  So it they did do something stupid like 10 per season ticket and genuine fans miss out, send me a pm!

How many season ticket holders are going to buy 10 tickets (if this is true), and if they do it's most likely going to be for their non season ticket holder mates so they can sit together.

If you look on the Chesterfield website you will see if you purchase 10 or more tickets you will need to provide details to the football League as to who the Tickets are for.

Some people are going to want to purchase large numbers of tickets; one of my collegues at work asked me about it as the junior football team his son plays for is looking at running a coach for the Dads and kids. Good way of picking up some new supporters.

Like Chesterfields idea of selling stand by stand to Season Ticket Holders first, then again looks like we're using a Ticket Agency again so will be subject to the extra Credit Card Fee, Handling Charge, Postage and whatever other extras they can charge us for.

At the end of the day we have an allocation of 30,000 so it should be plenty

I must admit that I don't give a flying fuck whether yhey give priority to ST holders or not. If we want we could take 65-70,000 there. I'd let anybody buy as many as they want. I'll start worrying when we've sold 50,000. I also don't give a flying fuck if the people around me want to sit / stand / kneel / sing / pray / take a vow of silence / are competely shitfaced / teetotal etc.
We've also got some very inportant games to play between now and then, starting tomorrow.

I will be there and very much looking forward to it. it should be a hum dinger of a game and if we can get a result like we did away to southend it sends an even stronger message to all the others in the league.

It will be a bit naughty if you cant get them from the club and have to pay the admin fee, credit card fee and postage on top, that is surely unfair.

I understand it is a big job selling 30,000 tickets and people will want to sit in certain areas so they would have a job to do to sort it and make selling tickets a tough job, but hopefully we wont get fleeced for extra charges.

And what if season ticket holders buy them all up? I've been to loads of away games but the club just ignore fans like me. I just don't get what our board are playing at. Next thing you know we'll be turning out in a white kit sponsered by the KKK. I've had enough of this club. Kerrouche had the right idea.

The other side of the coin will be that some ST holders will be wanting to get their cheap seats in the non singing section asap because they have young children who will be affected by the standing. I have every intension of joining in with every song wherever I am sitting and reckon this time round will be much better than last time.

Those designated areas will help in getting the songs started, but i think it will spread to the other areas.

I reckon this is exactly how it will be arriba. We have made plenty of noise this season and can't see it stopping because of some non regulars.

Not being a STH think the 'singing' section will sell out before I get a chance to get a ticket, which means sitting with some of the daytrippers and pissing them off. Ah well I can live with that :D

Son has decided that he doesn't want to sit with the fuddy-duddies this time, and wants to be in the singing section.

So, having never sat/stood behind the goal at the new Wemberlee, anyone have any idea how far back do you need to be to get any sort of decent view.

Even though it is technically behind the goal I think it should be a decent enough view, the only place where you will get the best view surely is on the side right towards the half way line and that is probably the 'corporate' or 'Club Wembley' seats

Not a bad idea that Reg, Did this happen last time ? I guess the chance you would have to take by waiting is that all the cheap seats might be gone so you may have to end up spending more, they've got us over a barrel either way.

Had to do it as two separate bookings, and got fleeced for £13 in booking fees & £3.70 in postage  (where is that Mexican Bandit smiley when you need it)

But only 10 in one order, so if you have 10 season tickets you have to do 5 transactions  . So to get a large group sitting together you really have to wait until next week.

Or pick your row and do two transactions, paying £1.85 twice...worked for me.

Judging from my experience of booking online, there was a major rush at 9 but that had calmed right down by about 10.15

Should get a lot easier from now on. The online booking is actually very quick and easy once it isnt being swamped!

I started again and it all went through, bank details sorted and then I got an error message saying I had got on the site via an unrecognised site??? :hmmm: :headhurts: and it booted me off. I then checked my emails and it had confirmed the transaction so a happy ending. :) :D

I've heard they're selling the bottom tiers first then once they're sold then they'll be opening up the top tiers. A bit strange because I'm sure some ST holders would want the cheapest tickets.

Website came up eventually and I got nine tickets  in a row but not quite where I really wanted after much faffing around and being timed out more than once! Probably rushed into it as it is pretty obvious from other comments that they are not releasing all the seats today.


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets

They did certain blocks at a time last time in order to fill them before moving to the next one. That made it look like tickets were selling out when they were not. I'd advise anyone to wait a couple of days to avoid the rush then get the tickets you want will relative ease.

Hi John

Apologies if you have been experiencing problems.

I have spoken with the ticket company and I believe there was some confusion with some of their call centre staff about this. I have now been told that a clear message has gone out and you will be able to process your order via the ticket line.

Any further problems, please come back to me and I will look at it again for you.

Kind regards

You can't do that though until next Tuesday 28th. Don't think people are panicking about missing out on a ticket just that they want to sit in certain areas. The cheap tickets at the front will be sold out soon if not already so sitting in the heavens will be the only cheap option.

On the face of it "singing sections" and selecting your own seats may seem completely unnecessary and a bit stupid.

That is until you get into the ground, are surrounded by people you don't know who are there for a day out* and the whole atmosphere is flat.

* No problem with this, just causes issues when some people want to stand and sing, some sit and snooze

I understand what you're saying about it not being that important in the grand scheme of things but it's a Cup Final for christ's sake. How many cup final's have we had to enjoy in your lifetime? None in mine and i'm older than you i expect.

100%

As I've said - it wasnt the being shit and going down that put my off. It was the gutless, white flag surrendering mentality the whole club had. Right from the sale of Greer in July, all the players inbetween, Austin and Morrison in January - and then Paul fucking Hart.

The more time goes on the more it seems that was Fittons mentality and we're better off with Wray as Chairman.

I'd go back now if I didnt think somehow it would jinx us. I've even turned down free tickets because....

Hopefully after this year, one more opportunity.

Then we'll be in the Championship and too good to even have to enter the piss poor paint pot.

I've always maintained its for small time teams with no major honours like Bristol City.

Plus, unlike the Millwall game it isnt shit or bust - we could lose 10-0 to Chesterfield and still go up as Champions and be a division above them.

I can see where DV is coming from.  I've never really been bothered by the JPT.  But now we're here, it's a day out.  I think I'm more excited by that, and the chance to right some Wembley wrongs from 2 years ago, than I am by the potential for silverware.

If we weren't doing the business in the league, however, I doubt I'd be able to give the JPT the time of day.  This is not the main course this season.  It's an attractive side salad.

We touched on this before, I know, but hope everyone recognises the inherent contradiction in:

  (a) willing a big Swindon following in a thread like this; and then
  (b) moaning like buggery when lots of part-timers show up on the day.

My wife will be coming to her first game in about 7 years.  Frosty reception initially when I broke the news that we were playing at Wembley on our wedding anniversary.  And problem solved about 24 hrs later when she suggested herself she would come as well.  Everyone a winner.

You get a selection of block numbers and row within the block numbers. You then select the tickets you want. concessions appear when you select an adult tickets (???!)

But the website is shoddy. I was trying to use two season tickets to buy 6 seats (2 lots of 3), it was completely unclear whether we would be anywhere near each other in the same row.

The Mrs ended up phoning. Seems quiet now but if you don't have an ST then I guess it may be busier next week. There won't be a shortage of tickets, but I guess the choice will reduce a bit.

Not sure about selling out, but there's certainly a lot of interest. Quite a few coming with us who only come to the big games, but some of them are getting a bit more interested nowadays with Paolo around!

Not sure about selling out, but there's certainly a lot of interest. Quite a few coming with us who only come to the big games, but some of them are getting a bit more interested nowadays with Paolo around! Hopefully there'll be a good few thousand more caught up in the emotion of it all - we've had enough publicity this season!

Should be a good day had by all concerned, bit different to playing that horrible lot from South London, I know a lot of people that didn't go to that one because of potential trouble etc.

Where did you here this? No official announcement since the 7500 last night. We only have around 5,500 season ticket holders so anything over 10,000 by Tuesday would be huge I think.

Not really, we've got 10 of us going on two season tickets. As others have said, plenty of reasons why some ST holders won't have booked yet. If we can get 30,000+ it'll be great.

Never mind, looked it up. We'd sold 25,000 in the first 3 days last time so we're well down this time round. Saying that, there is a hell of lot more time before this game than Milwall when there were only 11 days to get tickets.

I would have thought that the majority of season ticket holders would have bought theirs before they go on general by tues, and that it will be say an average of 2 per season ticket, so I reckon 10 to 11k by tues will be about right, and a good start as well...

Just go as close as you can. I'm no physicist, but I expect the sound will probably travel to the next block. It's the seats on the sides of the pitch where you're most likely to experience the day tripper 'shhhh' brigade. Probably.

I'm a bit surprised people are surprised at the sales numbers. What were people really expecting. Less than two years after our first trip to Wembley for years, in a match that was a lot more important than this, we now qualify for what, when you're being honest is a third rate competition final, against a third rate team (and that's being kind on both fronts).

It was never going to be a massive turn out, 20,000 would be good, 25k immense, 30K unbelievable.

I'm a bit torn between being in / close to the singing area and being close to the halfway line where there will be a better view - my eyesight's so bad I often can't see to the goal at the far end when behind the goal.

Closest to halfway line seems to be block 126 in the £46 price. Does anyone know if they have sold out blocks 123/124/125 or are they releasing a few blocks at a time and haven't got this far round yet?

243 ( I think, may be 244) , row 1. Booked Wednesday. On a big game they are Club  Wembley silver seats. They are just pleb seats for the JPT.

Well, approx 5500 of us have season tickets, which kills the three home games in a row argument. A large proportion of the rest will be occasional fans, so it doesn't really apply to them either

Clearly I can't teach the financially incapable to budget, but they could have put the Burton ticket money in a shoe box when it was postponed, and I suspect many will have bought their tickets in time for the original fixture anyway.

As far as I am aware, none of the top tier have gone on sale as yet.  Though I stand to be corrected.

I reckon the point at which they will go on sale will be about 17k or 18k.  So I think we have a while to go.

My daughter changed her mind and decided she did want to go to Wembley, so I called Ticket Zone and managed to get one in the row behind us. It was too late to send the ticket with the previous order I made last week so I paid for postage again, which was fair enough.

Five minutes later, my mate calls and asks me to get two more tickets for his work colleague (bollocks said I), so I call Ticket Zone again and manage to get two tickets in the row behind us again. I asked if they can be sent with the ticket I just order. 'No' said the lady, as the order had already gone through (whatever that means). So I had to pay £1.85 postage AGAIN. Very annoying.

Fair enough but you can't really complain about the hassle it's causing you

I've placed my order, if anyone else wants any tickets, even if their friends or collegues then can get them themselves.

I don't want the hassle

Block 124 is only one block. And yes, some seats are £46. It would probably be a little easier if you went on the official site and had a look for yourself you know - price guides, seating plans, view finder, the lot! ;)

Its one of the few certainties in life.  On line tickets agencies will crash and people wanting tickets will wonder why they didn't do anything when they know there is going to be a rush.

They don't do anything because they are shit.  You just have to reach a zen like state of calm and accept that this is the way its going to be.  Some serious buddist shit going on in this house at the moment.

also, even if the club added 1 pound to the cost of each ticket to cover their costs, I think all fans would have been more than happy to pay this, plus potentially £20k to the club....not to mention the camaradarie and 'day out' experience of queing round the ground etc.

We opened the concourse under the south stand when tickets were on sale and stagered it over the week one day south stand ST, the next west then east and finally loyalty card holders before then went on general sale the week after. We did a number system where you were given a raffle ticket and waited till it was called. Also they open up the refreshments hatch so the waiting was plesent as well, i was suprised though to hear that you had given most of your tickets to ticket master is that right?
Anyway good luck on march 25th whatever the outcome it will be a really good day out how are ticket sales going?  We have so far sold 15,500 but we only have the higher end £46 tickets left and i think they have peaked now dont think we will be requesting anymore i doubt we will sell the 21,000 we have got but were taking a good following down.


Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: jimmy_onions on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, 10:58:36
by the sounds of it we may pass 15500 today....first day of general sale, unless all this activity is the same 5 people calling up 1000 times each...which is a distinct possibility.

Quite the opposite actually ok we have had some hard games in the trophy this season but as the season on a whole has been so poor im not expecting anything. The oly thing that could go in our favour and dont take this the wrong was is if the media again is all about the Paolo dicanio show

Why the club couldn't open the hatches over a fortnight i do not know?
Sales easily could have been spread with those in the office manning the phones whilst other staff issued tickets from the hatches.
Chesterfield could manage it

We should definitely have given it some thought, however the queues would have been legendary and I bet more complaints would have ensued.  I don't know how Chesterfield have managed, but fair play to them.

Apparently some tickets have been sold by the club corporately and the same seats sold by the website meaning some people will have to be moved

Happened to a chap on twitter, and they offered cheaper seats on the other side of the stadium!

Jokers

I got the same call! I had bought 8 seats in Block 143 Row 9 (£60 cat) on the side nearest the tunnel, which was just about as close to the bench/tunnel as you can get without knowing someone. Got a call at 5:30pm on Monday saying they shouldn't have sold them and I had to move. Bearing in mind they would go on general sale the next morning I had to make a snap decision on the phone where to be moved to.

I'm not overly impressed with that really although I'm not sure who is to blame for it, is it Ticketzone's fault or the club? I 'll probably write and complain but listening to Paolo last night it sounds as if he might have got my seats for his friends, I don't want him sending the boys round  :eek:

from Chesterfield site

Quote
Wembley tickets are still on sale for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final when Chesterfield take on Swindon Town at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 25 March 2012, kick-off 2.00pm.

True Blue Travel has almost reached capacity of 50 coaches for the trip to Wembley - bookings are currently being taken for coach No 49.

As at 5.00pm Friday 24 February, the Spireites had sold 15,500 tickets, which leaves less than 6,000 tickets remaining from the Spireites initial allocation of 21,150 tickets, mainly high-end tickets to the value of £46 and a few £60 Club Wembley tickets.

so from reading that they have been tight arsses and all plumbed for the £36 & £26 tickets where as we have done the complete opposite!

Would be a surprising figure if we had got to 25k already but I am sure they mentioned on the radio that Jeremy Wray said we were close to 20k yesterday so maybe we could of sold an additional 5k today? I very much doubt it but even if we are over 20k I am pretty encouraged by that.

Thats pretty impressive. Last i heard we had sold about 15500. I cant see us selling many more. Whereas you are buzzing & on the up we are having a real downer of a season. Last night we got pasted by Charlton. They never got out of 2nd gear. Most Chesterfield fans aren't expecting anything from wembley except a chance to see our local team there. Just like you we will have loads of day trippers. We had a brilliant season last year by having a sunday morning with your mates attitude. If you score 2 we'll score 3. It worked last season but not this. Our manager decided in his wisdom that he didn't need to strengthen in a higher decision. Big mistake. Anyway good luck for the season & may the best team win at wembley. Should be fun in the technical area with Di Canio & Sheridan. Mr Sheridan is very often involved in slanging matches with our own supporters.

yeah he sits in the row behind me, every season he has the new home kits stitched together

I talked to him after the Brighton playoff semi defeat, the day after the Monkey Hangers lost to shitty. IIRC the Hartlepool thing came about as something obscure like "heard  agame they won on the radio" or "saw them beat...." rather than any family connection  up there.

Just phone them up I am sure they will change them for you they did for me.  They swapped me from 60 quid first floor upto club wembley as it will be easier to get a :pint:
Was very fast as well as you'll go through to customer services rather than a sales queue. 

It is bizarre that they have released these tickets....also bizarre that its 46 quid for club wembley in singing zone.  I guess its because they are behind goal.

The whole things been a big feck up.  From the 4 quid per ticket fee, site crashing, phone lines not even ringing.....they didn't even process my card correctly hence the need to phone.  Ticketzone looks tinpot and has proven to be thouroughly tinpot

Pretty sure not all of the middle tier is 'Club Wembley' there will be around half of our end that has fans in it, and another half of already owned 'Club Wembley' seats with about two people in the whole area. Rich cunts who don't turn up for England games let alone a JPT final...even if they do they spend half the match indoors eating and drinking.

Hi 

Tried your tip about swopping tickets today. Called and they had two together in Block 241 row 4 !
So I grabbed them and then tried to explain that my two 10 rows from the back seats shud be swopped for these.
He went off to see his manager and then said 'not can do - you accept no refunds or transfer' when you bought
them'.

I said 'yeah 'cos you were makingout like these were the only seats left and all the time you were holding some back'.

He shrugged me off.  ::)

But did say 'take it to customer services'.

So before I do, so anyone else have similar [or different] experience ?

Any thoughts on how many they suddenly brought up for resale etc ?

Thanks !

They seem to have a fixation with selling every last seat in a block before they release another block of seats for sale and until they've done this they tell people the price category has "sold out" when I reality there's probably 5000 seats left in each price band.

Poor customer service.

How much are tickets?

Can I still get tickets in the singing section? 

Is it 3pm kick off on a Sunday?

I'm local to this, but moving house next month and not sure I can afford it.  I'll probably cave in and go though...  Not sure I can afford not to go.

Have you got better, worse or different seats Posh Red? I'd be ringing up for a word/make sure you haven't got someone elses tickets(confirmation slip should show this mind)/bought more tickets than you meant to thanks to the wonderful online experience.

I got tickets in the same block.

We booked the front row, but have tickets for row 4.

I'm going to call ticket zone & complain, don't suppose they can do much as I'm sure they have already sold the front row seats & I don't particularly want to move out of the singing section.

Sadly have to agree,basicly we had to have the tickets and rows that were offered,not the ones we would have prefered etc.
On a similar theme the price of the Townend renewal for a season ticket is way to high in comparison to the good value offered for the sides with reference to next season...Townend £30 quid cheaper for the season :eek: than the sides.
Will be getting a season ticket but alas it may not be in the Townend at the price they are charging,though paying the extra is probably worth it with the atmosphere etc.....at least i got a few weeks to think about it anyway.

Trouble is if I ask for a refund I'll end up getting six seats together but not where I want the seats. ( top tier ) can't understand why the booking person would give anyone 5 seats together and one on their own the other side of an aisle. Good job the tickets are not for a family with children. Hopefully there will be a couple of spare seats nearby which we can move to.

Totally agree with you Arriba.  My dad spent the best part of 4 hours trying to get 9 tickets together in a specific area.  If we don't get the correct seats or are split, it's simply not acceptable.

And yes my credit card was fraudently used several times after I bought tickets last time.

I meant a refund of just the booking fees, seeing as they didn't actually book you the seats you asked for.

Politely tell them you are reluctantly keeping the seats but want your £15 back for them not doing their job. Best of a bad situation. Probably won't get it but its the principle.

I'd also be emailing dissatisfaction to the club so they don't mess it up for our champions league final in 2016 ;)

I booked the tickets over the phone so don't have an email which is a shame, I phoned this morning to ask why I had a seat with a number different to the others and was told the odd seat was the other side of the aisle to the rest but on the same row. I told them I wasn't happy to which they said there wasn't much they could now do about it and it wasnt intentional. Is there anywhere I can look at the actual seating plan to check it is across the aisle, I can only find a plan with block numbers but not seats. Thanks for the advice.

Thanks all for your help. I've had a bit of luck as ticket zone have amended the booking and got the odd seat put on the end of the other seven seats I have booked but not received yet. I asked for a bookng fee refund and although they are not refunding the original fee they didn't charge me for the amendment or postage. Suppose that is all I could expect. Now sorted with tickets and transport so now just to put some pennies buy for the Ale  :pint:

it was hardly a moan...my point was this. I always thinks its a good litmus test when a team gets to wembley to see what their fanbase and popularity is like, e.g millwall, good turn out of = biggish club, saints 45k, well supported club, carlisle, huge distance yet still 30k fans made the journey...i.e. obviously a well supported club.
Chesterfield, 16,200...clearly will be a struggle to get this club anywhere above league one for long periods of time, since they hanvet the fan base to support it...

However, the point about them being bottom is a good one, maybe if they were mid table or better it would have been close to 20k.

They may have got a few more if they had been given more £26 tickets.  I believe of the inital allocation they asked for they were only given 1500 £26 tickets.

There may be an economic point as well.  Unemployment is quite a bit higher up there so may have played a part, in additon to the fact it is alot more expensive for them when travel is factored in.

I dont think 16k is the worst ever.  I think Carlisle took a few less for the final last year, but there you need to take into account the fact that they had got there 2 years in a row so alot will have decided not to go second time around.

Chesterfield is quite a small town, so 16K is a sizeable % of the population, and the unemployment rate there is less than in Swindon.

We'd be needing to take 40K +, to get near their %

But then you're into Sheffield and Nottingham's catchment.....

Going back to another point, I don't suppose Chesterfield see themselves as much more than a Div 3 club, not having been in the second tier since the 50's.  Although we might have aspirations for better, the reality is that we're at heart still a Div 3 club.

Chesterfield don't really have a catchment area as Sheffield is 10 minutes down the road and Nottingham isn't far the other way either. Both of those cities have 2 clubs as well. Also Chesterfield is in Derbyshire so there are probably a fair few Derby fans around as well. To be fair when you take all of that into consideration it's not a bad figure of ticket sales.

I live about half way between Chesterfield and Derby. Roughly about the threshold where folk stop supporting Rams and favour Chez Vegas or the Sheffield clubs. Certainly won't get many Derby fans in Chesterfield itself.

On another note, a couple of Spireites at work are refusing to go because they couldn't get the cheaper tickets, and they refuse to pay over 30 quid to watch '2 lower league teams in a glorified friendly.' Personally, I reckon they actually don't want to go because they think they will get battered!

So, I complained to ticketzone about the fact that they cocked up my booking.

Turns out that my online booking failed, & so they reserved the best available seats in the block I asked for, but forgot to tell me when they called me back to retake the payment.

They have offered to refund me for the tickets if I send them back (which is pointless as I will have to buy more tickets which will be even further back), swap them for other seats (which is no better) or refund my booking fees (so that's the option I have agreed to).

I'm fairly sure that's where we were as well.  Looked a bit of a dive from the outside, but the atmosphere was cracking inside.  If only we could have carried that with us to the stadium.

The problem with the Green Man is that is was obviously where a lot of our lot went last time and it was obviously good...so now every bugger knows it by reputation and wants to go there.  You're bound to get many more people turning up this time as a result, and some may not even get in.  I won't be going anywhere near it.

Off topic but related to this post.

When I did work experience, erm a long time ago, it was with a company making cabinets for big PA systems, the week I was there they were doing the cabs for a big U2 tour. I scratched Bono is a Cunt on the inside of all the cabs I could.
A small victory but a victory never the less.

I would imagne that it is at Wembley's insistance so that its easier to steward if the fans are in areas rather than a few here and there. Knowing which areas will be populated means they can adjust the amount of stewarding needed before the game takes place.

Yeah that makes sense. Though the stewards were completely pointless last time :)

Bit frustrating for the fans who settled for the cheap seats only to find there are more in the area the originally wanted after all. But that's life I suppose.

Post by: Chesterfield Heaven on Sunday, March 18, 2012, 16:37:45
it was hardly a moan...my point was this. I always thinks its a good litmus test when a team gets to wembley to see what their fanbase and popularity is like, e.g millwall, good turn out of = biggish club, saints 45k, well supported club, carlisle, huge distance yet still 30k fans made the journey...i.e. obviously a well supported club.
Chesterfield, 16,200...clearly will be a struggle to get this club anywhere above league one for long periods of time, since they hanvet the fan base to support it...

However, the point about them being bottom is a good one, maybe if they were mid table or better it would have been close to 20k.

There's also been a few rumblings on the Chesterfield Message Board. Apparently they've charged their 60-65 year olds full price while at Swindon your 60 years olds have got half price. Not very equitable :(

Eh? You're joking right? If we were hovering around the bottom of the table, all the other things that are making this such a great season wouldn't be around either, including the feelgood factor.
Our home gates go down when we're struggling, I would've thought the same would happen regarding a Wembley trip. Especially as we were only there a couple of years ago, so those with no interest in the club whatsoever probably went then.

As you say, all conjecture anyway.

I got tickets for a few people who were OAPs and as when the tickets turned up there was no difference on the tickets I rang Ticketzone to check if it mattered which tickets I gave to who and they said it didn't as they are all the same.

So I think it should be fine with the concession tickets - don't think the automated system will even know the difference.

That is very true.

You never know how fortunes can change in football.

I missed the play off final last time due to family reasons and that has been really tough to get over, you never know when it will be your clubs last visit to Wembley.

For me this game is more about me making up for missing the last game there, I would not want to miss us playing at Wembley ever again.

The 2 play off finals we won were fucking amazing games (obviously probably not so much the last one) but can you afford to take the risk? for me I cannot.

I sit behind the dugouts at the CG. On at least 3 occassions this year we have had 3 or 4 different sets of WHU supporters in their shirts sitting in front of us. All they want to do is sing the "Paolo de-Canio" song and take pictures of the chosen one.

Also had a couple of native italians in Lazio shirts for either the Dagenham or Cheltenham game.

There was a small collection of Italians in the Arkell's a few weeks back. They seemed a bit mental in a scary, "please don't touch me" way.

They were at Poxford the other week, I got a feeling they're Di Canio mates.

Noticing that I have an hour and a half until I walk over to Luxembourg airport for my flight to London City for this weekend's game!

Some imbicile has locked the trivial threads, so posting it here.

Long as they aren't turning up in West Ham shirts singing West Ham songs. They can fuck off if so, its our day.

Exactly what I was thinking the other day.

I think Lufthansa go only from Hamburg to Heathrow.
Maybe Saturday afternoon, or early Sunday morning. Coming back Monday.
Flying from Hamburg.

I sincerely appreciate any help !
