Have you never noticed this before?

Standard procedure really, always has been, at any club.

Proper away supporters? Most of those 900 will be, and we only average 300 away from home...

The same procedures were followed for the long awaited game at the Racecourse first time around.
I live in Norway now and got a ticket, made the trip and became one of the 888.

I have also been able to obtain a ticket for the other two fixtures with with no problems.
For whatever reasons, not all of the 900 season ticket holders will require a ticket.

What I'm saying is, I live in another country and if I can get a ticket and get to the game then there are not many excuses why anyone else that wants to go can't either.

I was there : 27-11-90 The 409 club.

Don't know what the issue is. I am sure that Wrexham can release further tickets assuming they are using the Eric Roberts Stand and that CP and NWP OK it. Or are they as a club happy to turn money away. It's not as if the ground capacity isn't high enough to cope. How many does the Racecourse hold now. Must be 10000+. OK they have to cordon off parts of the ground they do not usually do for the Rugby League. Didn't they have over 8500 for the Grimsby fixture last October and cannot think there were more than a few hundred from Grimsby? Maybe someone from our club can answer as to whether or not extra tickets will be available assuming that the first allotted amount are sold?

BTW season tickets holders always have and always will have priority over non season tickets as they pay their money up front in the eventuality of such occurrences. Simples!!!!

The proper away supporters who only go to two games a season, cause a bit of aggro and give the club a bad name. A lot of season ticket holders go to away games ffs.

Does seem odd that this point has even been raised, almost as if it's something the club have just implemented.

The club need money to come in during the summer when there's very little income, an incentive to pay a large amount of money up front has always been priority for away and cup games. I've long thought some sort of secondary loyalty scheme would be a good idea though.

Why should someone who may not have been to a game all season have the same chance as getting a ticket as someone who goes to every home game.

we could implement some sort of priority system(online booking with points given for each ticket you buy) but at the moment the fairest way is ST holders and then everyone else. But its not really worth it as I can't ever remember a situation where demand exceeded our allocation, anywhere.

Anyone who want a ticket will have no trouble getting one anyway.

I don't want to appear condescending but are you new to football?

One of the advantages or 'perks' of buying a season ticket is to have priority for such events.
It happens at clubs up and down and throughout the land.

Incidentally, as part of the deal at Man Utd, season ticket holders are under obligation to purchase tickets for Cup ties played at Old Trafford or they lose priority on semi final and final tickets if United are involved.

So to guarantee your ticket in the future, I would suggest buying a season ticket otherwise queue up like the rest of us.

The system of season ticket holders getting first dibs on tickets for away games
And big matches has actually altered with a lot of clubs. Top clubs now have a loyalty
System in place where fans who go to a number of away games get priority when away
Tickets go on sale, and the same for big games at home. The problem with this though is
It's done via a fan card and matches are recorded on this, when tickets are purchased.
Bearing in mind none of our games, apart from Wrexham, require a ticket it would be
Difficult to implement at this level. And would be costly to set up as well, and just wouldn't
Be worth it for a club at our level.

All those system will still give STH priority though.

Each home/away will give 10 points for example. STH holders with so many points will get first dibs, then it will work its way down to NON STH with so many points until it reaches general sale.

Well, thats how it works at Wolves anyway.

Ridiculous post. Imagine if a first come first serve basis was used at every club for away tickets where there'll be a large demand. ST holders have and always will get priority and rightfully so (this is coming from a non ST holder). They put their money in so should receive priority. Next season buy a ST then you'll have one less thing to moan about.
