Because you only buy one season ticket so you only get one ticket for the game .
Season ticket holders are getting the first dibs on tickets.
What else do you want? A lift to the stadium? Free breakfast on match day?

Why on earth only have 2500 tickets been sent.

It’s blatantly obvious they will all sell and more will have to be sent

Why not mess about and send tickets for the whole stand, and if we don’t sell them all then return them?

What’s the betting they will sell out the initial allocation having not yet received the second batch of tickets?

Probably because MTFC have to front up 2500 tickets with an average face value of £15.00.

Guessing county wouldn’t do a credit either so we were hamstrung to buy in blocks.

After MTFC sell the 2,500 tickets, MTFC then have to buy the additional tickets upfront from County.

That is why the club will only order in additional tickets in batches of 500 or 1000 just to be safe.

Hopefully we see 4-5000 stags fans at Mardy Lane next month :coys:

Got mine this afternoon. Anne's doing a great job and making sure that ST holders get their chance to purchase first. While there one guy asked, 'being as though I'm here is there any chance I could get some for my friends to save me coming back, theyre nof ST holders'.

'No sorry, it wouldn't be fair'.

Fair play to the chap he accepted it ok

Last season was sit where you want but if we sell out or come close to then it will be allocated seating.
If season ticket holders want to sit with non season ticket holders then it might be worth buying them together?

We won't sell that stand out and even if we did, most people would sit where they like as usual.

We only sent Coventry Lincoln and county 1000 tickets in the beginning when it was obvious they'd sell more.

Makes no sense to anyone

Its because the Away club has to purchase the tickets upfront and most clubs dont have the cash flow to put up £40k upfront so do it in stages.

Not rocket science.

It won’t be allocated seating. Even if it is it won’t be enforced. Never is

Games like this you get people who never go to games and think you have to sit where the ticket says though.

Some ST holders will be waiting for general sale so they can get seats together with non ST holders. That's what we're doing. Last time we went, we sat in our allocated seats.

We always get to any game early so expect to sit in our allocated seats.Hate it if someone else is in my seat,Aside from that nearly everyone stands up so a seat is not needed.

Clubs don't always pay for the tickets until after the game. But wouldn't want to get myself confused over rocket science :shock:

I would suggest this is only for clubs that can sell out the home ends.

Clubs who can’t fill the home end, I think the cost of printing the tickets is the issue for home clubs giving away clubs allocations in blocks.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

Yeah if folk want to sit down they're much better off sitting right at the front, anyone from the middle rows back is basically going to see someone else's back. That's how it is at county

What does Away Seats S2 and S3 mean?
Is it section 2 and 3 or stand 2 and 3?
