Didn't think season tickets got entry to these cup games. Surely a ballot would be fair or those who had been to previous rounds get priority rather than season tickets picking the glory ties of the round rather than supporting throughout......onions??
How about suppprting with over a grand a year up front for years and years without a trophy in sight?

How is a ballot fairer?

Some bizarre logic and interpretation of fairness you have there.

If you are a Silver member who's been to every league and CL match at home this season (or listed them on the exchange), you'd have 47 points which looks like it'll be enough unless there's a huge amount of tickets going to corporates etc or loads of people on 47 exactly. Worst case scenario should be that it's 51 and you need to have been to one cup match. If we get to the final though you'll probably need to have been to at least a few of the home cup games to get a ticket.

FYI lots of glory hunting season ticket holders like me endured the ankle-deep mud at Newport and the blizzard against Rochdale, so no, a ballot would not be fairer than loyalty points.

Ahh. That feeling when I couldn't feel my toes while standing there oblivious to what was going on while someone in the referee's ear looked at TV pictures for five minutes at the Rochdale game... That was the feeling of glory that was.

The allocation is a little higher than previous years at 33.5k. Hopefully that means ST holders who have been to all the PL + CL games but not the domestic cups should still get a ticket. Still no hope for non-ST people though.

I wonder how many of the tickets will go to corporate sets etc? If it is something like 5,000 that would make a big difference. Let's hope it's a low number.

Where did you read that? Normally 32k, how come more this year?

I understand that last year the allocation to each finalist or the Final was 28,000 ... several thousand less than their semi-final allocations

So we have been allocated the East End of the Stadium, which is the opposite end from where our current 'Home' supporters are seated

Was hoping for the West End so we could get the pubs around Wembley Central like the Liquor Lounge but we'll have to make do with The Torch etc!
