Are these actually on sale yet?

When I go on line, you can select that game to buy tickets but when you do that, it just says, "no seats available matching your criteria"....is this is computer glitchy, clear your cache, log in/log out kind of thing or are they just not on sale yet? I would have thought they would be. Anyone know?

Yes they are.
You need to log onto the website and log onto the ticket page.
Select the number of tickets with the drop down box then add to basket etc.

10am this morning for non season ticket holders.
Plenty to go around 👍

curious about this trip.
when i look at google, it says it is about a 4.5hr drive and 4.5hr train ride.
how much does the train cost to take on a trip like this?  is the train somewhat comfortable? does it have things like plug-ins for computers and things?  Any sort of food car?
would a trip like this be an over-night event for most people or do you ride the train back after the game?

For the train Swindon to Manchester if not bought way in advance and with no railcards will cost about £150 for a return trip to Manchester then you have to go on local trams to get to Oldham as it doesnt have a railway station any more for another £5 return approx.

If booked way in advance it can be a fair bit cheaper (up to 50%) but then you run the risk of not getting a ticket if its limited.

The trains are fairly good and all have plugs for charging now, several have on board catering but many just have a drinks and snacks trolley now since covid.

Do you mean we won the game with 10 men or you went on a pub crawl with 10 men? Cheesy

I think you are referring to the trip to Barrow which is indeed a 4 hour journey.
All about buying tickets early, planning tickets from different rail operators and playing the system with railcards.
If you donít do this the cost is unreal.

3 long rail journeys for me and my 2 lads this year.
Barrow, Carlisle and Hartlepool.
The rest some long trips in the car, Exeter, Tranmere and Harrogate.
Still a 120 mile round trip to each home game which is a pain but all part of the deal unfortunately.

Back to Barrow travelling with 3 train operators:
Banbury to Wolverhampton - Cross Country
Wolverhampton to Lancaster - Avanti West Coast
Lancaster to Barrow - Northern Line

Cost was £240 but got it down to £110

Itís a very long day but clearly the advantage by train is a few beers and quality time to relax.
Disadvantage it only takes one problem and you can get stranded for the night in a Northern outpost.

Iíve thumbed lifts and jumped on Mail trains over the years - Goes with the territory.

Tried doing a pub crawl with a few mates down Manchester Road, Oldham,  absolutely impossible, seemed like every other building was a pub.   Wilson's mild was the 'then' drink.   Pint Pint

Don't be expecting to relax on the Lancaster - Barrow bit albeit you will be going the right way each time.
