    Letís sell out!

    So our allocation has been cut. Doncaster has stated we will get more if we sell out. So letís do it and do it fast. I often see gigs and events supposedly selling in less than 30mins. If we can do likewise, it makes a mockery of the decisionÖif we donít (despite the sporting integrity stuff), it simply plays into the leagues narrative and decision making.

    Ron asked on the Strong Opinion Hibs pod for fans to attend; letís give him his wish. He has pony upped for us. Letís do the same for him.

    Doncaster hasn't said how many more, it will probably be a couple of hundred.

    I don't think theres any danger of us not selling out. If its 2 per season ticket holder (which has been suggested it may be on here but not confirmed) then we will likely sell these out on the first day of sales and if not then the second day.

    They can't have 2 per season ticket holder as the allocation is not big enough for everyone to get two?

    17500 tickets? I think it'll be more a case of people missing out than us not selling out!

    That is impossible due to our ST numbers.

    On present ticket allocation, it is 1 per ST and the remainder on public sale.

    Would they guarantee x1 per ST holder then have a ballot if ST holders wanted x2 tickets ?

    Plus not every ST holder would want x2 tickets.

    Meaning some who went sunday may miss out? One per season ticket and then a public sale is the fair way

    Season ticket x 1 then public sale/ballot is only way to do this.

    Unfortunately so many regular attendees (this season and historic) are going to miss out.

    It's an absolute disgrace

    Edit: maybe you could do those who have bought a ticket to ER this season first?? (I have a season ticket btw)

    How can it possibly be two per season ticket? That means actual season ticket holders will miss out if they are not quick off the mark.

    One per season ticket holder, then one per non season ticket holder who attended on Sunday. Any left then public sale.

    We have been allocated 17500 tickets.

    We have 11000 ST holders

    2 x STs is 22000

    While I wont disagree with your confidence in this announcement, just how does that arithmetic add up?

    I donít know the ins and outs of the thinking behind the decision, I just know itíll be two per ST

    Our away season ticket payments are getting taken today and the club usually make the announcements for the season ticket holder sales the same day/day after

    Not every ST will take a ticket, and not all of those that do will take 2 tickets. I think we'd be safe enough promising each ST holder 2 tickets but I still think it'll be 1 per ST holder.

    I think thatís more to do with how the AST scheme works, we werenít allowed to add anyone for the semi final either.

    Basically when the ST holder sale starts Iíll still be able to buy one more ticket if I wanted it as one will already be used in the AST

    But if 7,000 take up two tickets, that leaves 3,500 tickets for 4,000 season ticket holders.

    I'm thinking if Hibs are doing this they will have good data on cup final ticket uptake for ST holders to have arrived at this decision. Like I said though I still think it'll be 1 per ST.

    It's not going to be 2 per season ticket. It literally makes zero sense.

    If it is two per season ticket this is a major balls up on commercial dept of the club.

    1 per current season ticket then anyone buying a Half Season ticket should then be eligible for a ticket.

    Sell as many ST as possible.

    Iíll personally be very happy with that. But it makes no sense at all and I will fully understand the rage that will follow.

    What if you dont get a ticket because another ST holder has bought two?

    Couldnít see any logic for having 2 tickets each for STs unless they are trying to make some sort of point to Doncaster about how quickly we can sell out 17500.

    I think they would be ok numbers wise in terms of all STs getting a ticket but certainly cutting it a bit fine. It would put the walk up who doesnít know any ST holders in a terrible position. Maybe the club will market it as some sort of thank you for buying an ST last season without seeing a game.

    Either way if itís true it seems an unnecessary gamble and will be leaving a lot of supporters peed off and other ST holders needlessly worried until they have their ticket secured.

    11,000 season tickets holders; two each

    17,500 tickets available


    Can you see the problem?
