Wrexham four weeks today . . . any hunches/info when they will go on sale. We have two other home games before it, so surely vouchers v Tamworth and Hyde will boost the gates? Hope they don't do that 5 pm thing where people turn up and get in the queue and sod the game. Even a voucher on the day, say v Hyde, that has to be produced along with ID for a ticket would work?

Here we go again. Will just go and pick mine up in the week before the game, I will eat my hat if it's sold out, something I can't remember ever happening. Chester v rectum always brings out the worriers for ticket sale info and in the end you can normally relax over a couple of seat on the day..... That said I am sure any spare home seats will be filled by the massive fans of the massive club who always come in the home end but are never polite enough to introduce themselves....

Have to agree with a lot of that, the derby is really over hyped. Look at the last 20 years, how many have sold out ?

I agree also, but this is the first derby when WE own the club and where it could turn out to be a massive game for the clubs future. With enough media coverage and the club actually reaching out, this could be a sell out. We got 5000 for Northwich after all.

On sale after the Hyde game apparently.

2 weeks to sell 3500 or whatever it is, not a chance.

It seems like the club don't want to sell tickets. They've known for ages yet decide to sell them one game prior.

I bet we dont hear any media coverage about it either.

Fair enough Cooky but why hasnt the club got any backbone? Being dictated to at every turn.

As for the police, do they expect it will stop any loons who want to coming? It just stops normal fans from having more time to get tickets

Totally agree mate, p**s up and brewery spring to mind.

Should be selling these tickets this week not 2 weeks before the actual game.

Could be wrong but I do believe the exiles get allocated a number of tickets, get in touch with them they will let you know

If it is a police decision to sell tickets so late its yet another remarkably stupid one -surely putting tickets on sale sooner will allow them to get an earlier estimate of of the size of the crowd and as such prepare their startegy for the day sooner.

As somebody who will be joining the exiles this week I will be fuming if the club doesnt come up with some way for exiles to secure their ticket without having to make an extra trip to the ground to queue up and purchase in person. If I have to travel just to buy a ticket the costs of attending this one match including traveling to chester twice will be over £130 for me and im fairly sure there will be exiles around the country for whom it will cost far more.

Also even if we cant sell tickets early whats with the total communication blackout? How hard would it have been for the club to put out a statement telling us when tickets would be going on sale, what times the ticket office would be open and details of how exiles can get hold of tickets (if at all). I appreciate details like the total number of tickets available and which areas may be closed for crowd segregation might not have been confirmed yet but those things dont affect people ability to get down to the ground to actually buy a ticket. In order to get a ticket for the derby at their place I had to book an afternoon off work to come down to the ground. This time around its too late for me to book any time off so even if i could afford to travel across the country for a ticket it would be pot luck whether I am actually free whilst the ticket office is open. If they had told us 2 weeks ago when tickets were going on sale I potentially could have booked time off work to ensure I could come and pick up my ticket.

Really, why?

I appreciate it may be harder for them to get tickets but they shouldn't have priority over regulars just because they don't live in the area.

the lack of information is a disgrace. and 2 weeks to sell that many tickets is nowhere near long enough.

Plenty of exiles are still regulars at the ground who attend plenty of home games each season but dont want/cant afford to travel from the other side of the country just to buy a ticket. Most will also be members of CFU so certainly deserve an allocation of tickets rather than being given the same chance to get them ahead of the large number chester locals who will only be showing up for this one game.

I'm at university whilst these tickets are being sold and so are a few others I know. I really hope it isn't 1 ticket per person otherwise I could miss out on one of our biggest games in our recent history. The club need to stand their ground with the police if they want a chance of selling all/most of those tickets.

I'm there are plenty of exiles who are regulars, but why should they be guaranteed tickets over anyone else just because they don't live in the area? Locals who travel home and away every week are not given any priority.

CFU membership doesn't and I hope never will have any effect on priority. Anyone could just join the CFU for however much it is, never attend a game and be guranteed a ticket for a big match.

Also I agree exiles (or anyone else for that matter) who attend regularly or even the odd game should have priority over Chester locals who haven't attended other games, but you can't have priority for a select group, some of who might not have been a game all season, and not for others.

I found it amazing a club who's aim is to reach the football league can't install some kind of priority system and online/telephone sales that ensure those who want and deserve tickets won't miss out to someone who doesn't care for the club any other Saturday but wants to be there when Wrexham come.

Try playing hardball with the police and they will either insist on CFC paying full amount for policing as opposed the 'contribution' agreed with Wrexham (got a spare £45,000 ?) or they will find ways (easy enough to do) to impose either much smaller attendance, no attendance or as last resort no game.

Yes you're right but it's still such a shame that this has to be the case. I want to go and watch my team against their rivals but I may not be able to, so I'm a little frustrated.
