just got an email saying the away season ticket holders will be put in a ballott for unrestricted view.

if your part of a group and your name comes out you all get a ticket?

Fairest way to do it if thereís a smaller allocation available for the unrestricted view than what we have in away season ticket holders

It is what it is.

Seems fair enough. Iíll be restricted, certainty! 😂

It's definitely the fairest way in my imo. The online system is basically a ballot but with an advantage to the folk who aren't working at the time the tickets go on sale

Sounds like someone with some common sense has been drafted in to deal with ticketing decisions. Hopefully, the same system will be rolled out for Derby tickets for seats left after AST holder have theirs.

I'm just happy to get a ticket if it's unrestricted then it's a bonus.

So those in a group have an increased chance of ďwinningĒ? Has anyone complained yet?

Does that mean everyone without an away ST will get restricted view?

Hereís a fairer way to do it. Those who get a restricted view this time get a unrestricted view next time ( dependant on if they are going to both games )

It canít be fair that if youíre in a group all get a ticket?

What about a group that have 50 in it vs one that has 2? Or the guy that goes on his win?

No system will be perfect. Not splitting groups up makes sense. If the fans who have the AST are happy enough with that then there is no problem really is there?

Nor should unrestricted be a bad view.

No I agree I tís not a problem if theyíre happy with it. Iím just surprised based on their input on other threads that they are (unless theyíre all in large groups so all have the same %age chance).

Any complaints should be directed to the weegies. £28 to sit behind a muckle pillar, losing the view of approx a quarter of the pitch? Shambles.

^ Nowhere near a quarter of the pitch. View isn't as bad as some make out, largely exaggerated.

Hibs also sell restricted view tickets with hand rails etc in the view. A work pal had one for Hertz on the 29th, think they took a quid off it.

How do you work that out ??

Group probably have less chance going by the email.

We recognise that a number of away season ticket holders, hold their ticket as part of a group to sit with friends/family. In these instances, one entry will be made in the ballot for the group and if this entry comes out the ballot, then all of those within the group will be allocated a ticket accordingly.

That clears it up and shows why no complaints. The OP didnít say that. :aok:

Won't be many of us anyway. :wink:

Just hope Celtic don't use at as justification not to give us an increased allocation in the future.

Some of the restricted view seats are much worse than others. At the last game only a small corner at the opposite end of the pitch was hidden from view for me. At the game before that a massive part of the pitch at our end was hidden and I had to watch a fair part of that match on the big screen.

Given how much they go on about having one of the best stadiums in the world, you'd think they could sort it out.

Some of the seats terribly restricted. Some are not. To say nowhere near a quarter of the pitch is wide of the mark.

This is the view I had last time, this is in row BB and there was 2 rows in front of me and seats to my left. The people to my far left couldnít see the goal end we were attacking in the second half.

Iíve only had one bad restricted view at Celtic, and in some instances have found the restricted view seats better than the non restricted. Famous last words - guaranteed Iíll get a stinker for next game now!

I won't be lucky in the ballot, I'll end up with a couple of shockers as well. :greengrin

That stanchion forms part of the main stand which was modernised in 1971. Probably looked pretty impressive when erected back then, but itís that pillar which results in the restricted view for what otherwise would be a great stadium to visit as an away fan.

You get a much better view if you buy tickets for the (home) section next to the Hibs Support.

AST holders money will be debited tomorrow so that indicates that tickets will be on sale to ST holders Wednesday or Thursday for this game. Doubt it will sell out, everyone is skint.
