Bit of market research would be worthwhile to understand what would attract numbers through the gate for less glamour matches.

Maybe matches should be categorised.

Premium price for A games - County, Spireites, Gimps
Standard price for B games
Discount price for C games - none glamours opponents, midweek games like newport where attendance plummets.

I also think there should be some sort of loyality points scheme implemented where by you get a point for every home game, and points for away games categorised based on distance with a minimum of 2 points.

This would then allow fans with certain levels of loyality points to be given priority before general sale after season ticket holders etc.


Wise words and a very good idea. What happened to Amber day when everyone turned up wearing something yellow, we could re introduce that scheme and have kids for a quid say......just an idea.

Great idea. I've been to plenty of home and away games this season. Yet when it comes to the bigger games I'm still at the back of the queue.

Got to agree Bristol, and whilst people who buy ST's should get first dibs at big games, there is no incentive at all for people that don't. An expensive hobby/love affair. The £10 offer at Notts County for FGR is a great incentive to bring folk in.

Final batch of tickets too. A real strange one as I feel like 4,000 won't be enough.

We will sell out 4000 by the end of this week. If county won't give us any more its only encouraging stags fans to get tickets in the home end. Surely the police MUST advise the clubs its in everyone's interest and safety to keep all the fans together. Seems ludicrous to me why they won't give us anymore when the stand holds 5700+, that's 1700 empty seats ??????

Think it's to do with it being all ticket. Health and safety increases capacity for all ticket.

The extra 1600 tickets look like an additional allocation as they are for section 4.
Looks like over 3200 sold so far.

Could there have been anything else going on that may have put telling us how many tickets we have sold, for a game over two weeks away, to the back of the things to do list?

I think you're right Conker. I think this is all going to go Pete Tongue due to the website.

Mate of mine brought 9 tickets online at £20 a go. They charged him £360 (180 x 2), I imagine they'd allocated 18 tickets...how many others has this happened to?

The last article says the addition 1588 or whatever is the final amount the club will receive.

Not take much for the media team to put up a quick update on Twitter/Website.

I’d be very surprised if we have been given more seats mate, we all know Stagstickets has its problems.
