Just wondering as some mentioning a bit of a palaver with using Google Pay. Even printing of a ticket is a bit of a minor ballache...

With that in mind, why aren't they just using QR codes on the emailed ticket so you can have it scanned at the ground? It's hardly a new thing in regards to ticketing.
They are. There's a QR code on the PDF which can be opened on the phone.

Ok...which makes total sense and expected, so then why the need to print off?

I'm making exempt those few that don't have a portable device to display/present the QR. I'm aiming at those who will have a smartphone or similar and seem to be having trouble. QRs are a piece of piss even to a technophobe and as many will know, to read them only another camera on a phone is needed to collate (I'm talking at the merchant end which Town already have set up).

I sense there is the possibility that it's a case of Maxwell House - 'We don't like change do we Deidrie?!'  Soapy Tit Wank

I don't think you do. I think you can just open the PDF on your phone and scan from there.

Yeah, I know how a QR works Paul and yes you can just open the PDF Cheesy  What I mean is, why are some people feeling the need to print it off, when they don't need to (bar the very few exceptions) at all?

I'm wondering if they don't realise that essentially your phone becomes the digital "piece of paper" in this instance?!  Hmmm

As Batch says. Print out as plan b in case the phone packs in.
Plus a tin can and some string so no missed calls.

Adding the ticket to Google Pay was easy in the end.
Just need the thermos and a blanket and will be good to go.

If you take a couple of tins of beans with you and a stove you can kill several birds with one stone.
Blanket will be a certainty. Beans will ensure that you (and others) are kept warm Wink

Well if you're taking a couple of tins of beans with you, you could throw those at the birds and then you wouldn't need a stone, Mr "No need for extra redundancy" Smiley

If I was lucky enough to get a ticket (and as a non season ticket holder in tier 3 area it's unlikely at best), I'd bring the thing in every available format and bring a ton of ID.  No room for error.  For those going, enjoy my friends.  I'm jealous, but in a good way.  Smiley

Haha, I like it but I actually hate tinned baked beans.

Do you think that the social media boo boys (Kovar, Grounds, Curran) are mentally prepared for Saturday and the roasting from their own fans?
Makes them play better doesnt it? that's why fans do it.

With so few fans hopefully there will be on booing, its certainly not what the players need, although with having to wear masks any booing will be muffled anyway, although that will be the same wiht cheering as well
