Away ticket ballot
Is it fixed? Put in for 5 away tickets this season and secured and grand total of zero.

Luckily folk I know have spares, so I've been okay, but either I'm incredibly unlucky or the ballot isn't as random as I've been lead to believe.

13 points to be precise. No points for Leeds.

Re: Away ticket ballot
Bearing in mind the club have been giving 2 points for a home cup games for a few seasons, their have been several opportunities to get tickets this season. Newcastle was general sale, Southampton only 7 points needed, Everton 6 points, Man Utd away in the cup no points needed. So if you did all those games acquiring the points as you go along plus add in the Europa home and Carabao home games you are already well into double figures as of now.

Re: Away ticket ballot
I've managed to get Everton, Newcastle, Spurs, Man United (cup) and Man City on points, but missed out in the ballot to Burnley, Leeds, Arsenal, Man United, Villa, Wolves and Palace in the ballot.

Re: Away ticket ballot
I’ve got tickets for every away game this season. Probably to do with very few of them actually selling out.

Just received the palace away tickets in the post this morning. That's the last two times I've applied and twice I've got them.

Re: Away ticket ballot
Was going to say on here the other day how I've applied for loads of tickets and never had any luck. However I've just been told I've got two through from the ballot for Watford.

I bought my very first ‘half’ season ticket just before Christmas 1985 in the West Lower. The club was desperately trying to flog them, despite us having a very good season.

The old method of buying away tickets was first come, first served and it worked very well.

Anyway, I had the same seat, West Stand development notwithstanding, until we left in 2016.

I’ve also had the same seat at the LS ever since we moved there, but I realised quite early on that with an extra capacity that there would be greater demand for away tickets, as has been proved.

Over the years I have managed to go to most away matches that I have wanted to attend, but the more popular and close ones have proven to be a problem, like Watford, for instance. I managed to go to Watford every time I wanted to when we were at the Boleyn, but since we have moved I have never managed to get one, apart from this time.

Re: Away ticket ballot
That's interesting Mark that people put in to the ballot even if they have no intention of going. I've never entered the ballot unless I've actually wanted to go. It just takes tickets away from people who actually want to support the team.

Upton Park Mark 12:21 Sat Nov 27
Re: Away ticket ballot
Me and my son are only on 8 points, and so far have got tickets from the ballot for Newcastle, Everton and Man City.
Was speaking to someone at Everton who has access to 6 season tickets through friends/family and they put in 6 applications for every ballot whether they can go or not, and there must be a high volume that do the same.
I suppose the points system is the only fair way of doing things, but it's open to the 'I'll go in for it, and sell if need be' punter.
Back in 92 I bought a Chicken Run season ticket a couple of days before the season started, how times have changed.

Re: Away ticket ballot
Burnley went to high 20s, Watford to 33.

I've got mid twenties points and usually am fine but those two matches I've got nowhere near. But it's fair - people who've built up the points deserve to go.

Was a bit pissed off with Burnley as I'm up north and have never had any problems getting Burnley tickets before but I think a lot of people are buying to retain points and then selling on.
