    Paul Barber - ID checks of fans at away games?

    Bit surprised about this if I am honest. I understand the problem but not sure that is the right way of going about it. How many fans do they think are using other peoples fan numbers?

    What next, picking tickets up on the motorway 3 hours before kick off?
    900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      And I don't think you need to be a hotshot lawyer to work out that they have no right to do this. Asking to see someone's ID? They're having a laugh.

      FFS, pathetic.

      We're going to a frigging FOOTBALL match for christs sake. I use my own fan number anyway, but if some jobsworth herbert in a high viz came up to me at a match and demanded I produce ID, I'd tell him to poke it.

      If they are selling you a ticket, and they add this to their T&C that they have the right to do so ("In completing this purchase you hereby agree to our terms and conditions", click this little box to agree), then why wouldn't they??
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Perhaps they do have the ability to deny you access to their facilities if you can't prove you are the legitimate owner of the ticket?

      Would seem a bit odd for Barber to go out on this limb if he hadn't checked??

      So what's the problem?

      Say you want to go to Norwich for a hypothetical promotion party, and all the eats are sold before the loyalty points drop to your level, so you miss out. How do you then feel if you find out 200 people with less points than you - perhaps who'd been to no games all season - DID get tickets?

      Be interested to see what the FSF say about this. Might wave it in front of them

      They do it at high profile concerts, so it stands to reason they'd have no issue doing the same at football.
