Perhaps the demand isn't there - I thought they would bring at least 1,200 and there is plenty of space to allocate them!
I reckon they could shift 1500 easy.
I notice they have made 3 of there home games all ticket, Bury, Oldham and Sheff Utd. Surprised we are not on that list as we will likely take more than any of them and haven't played them for a while.

Less away fans, less stewarding, less policing

. EQUALS

Less cost so the OYSCUM are quids in literally

Its a wonder they haven't started restricting home numbers but the NAPM brigade are seeing to that at the moment
Selling less tickets to reduce policing costs cannot be the objective. Away fans sales will be a major part of the revenue this season. More likely they are worried about printing cost for printing too many. I can see them releasing another batch if it sells out.

Had we been ticket only , no one would be going. Napm have said they won't buy tickets from the club.

So probably a wise move.
Iam not sure if it means just the home ends are all ticket, but i would have thought we would have been more attractive opposition for them, if only for the fact we haven't played them for a while.
I don't think many clubs will be expecting Blackpool to travel in big numbers considering everything that's going on.

If oyston fc is saying there's a pitch invasion possibility, these other clubs won't want us there in numbers. Bigger police bill.
No reduction in prices I notice. It was 27 for a ticket in the Prem. 25 in League 1. Bargain!
More policing doesn't necessarily follow with more away fans-what they might have as an option is the van squad on duty. Can't see that for Dale where all they'll do is increase the stewarding.

According to a national Superintendent over the weekend it's the clubs responsibility inside the ground,and not many clubs pay the living wage.



Chelsea do but it doesn't include their contractors, leaving the only one being FC United.
Due to the size of the ground there's no real reason to restrict away ticket sales. They will just be using advanced ticket sales as a way of judging policing levels.
Whoops...

Hope every league club and for that matter every club we are due to play contacts the club and the relevant organisation and gets the same response

Not confidence inspiring is it ??

Great for reduced revenue though !!!




Who says pitch invasions are not working :laugh:
Good release that as well, doesn't blame the fans and recognises the unique situation we're in.

That is a deep question. :scratch_chin: Let me philosophise for a while and maybe get back to you on it.
