    Indeed. Should be added that just about all that north availability is N2 which is familes only.

    However, we then find out how good the season ticket exchange will be
    My fear for the exchange is some of our STH are so lazy that they wouldn't bother to go to the trouble of listing their seat and would rather see it empty.

    I genuinely believe even if the club made it as simple as texting you with a yes/no response required to list your seat most wouldn't bother such is the bizarre nature.


    I will and always have gone to the trouble of filling unused seats in our group of STHs and give someone else the pleasure of watching us hassle free.

      Agreed.

      Is there any financial incentive for a no show s/t holder to give notice to the club?

      Latest availability

      North 105
      West 63
      South 140
      East 424
      Total = 732

      Any STH wanting to bring a friend needs to act fairly quickly tomorrow I suggest.
      If we failed to sell any more tickets we would be looking at 30k. (pretendance)
      Brighton & Hove Albion will be there long after the current players, manager,chairman......thanks to who?...you of course!

      About 10 per ticket to spend in the shop for a family stand ticket

      It wouldn't affect me, but I wonder if they credited s/t holders debit/credit card with say 15 if their seat resells, would be a means to get more no-shows to let the club know, give more fans a chance and improve true attendances?

      Arsenal have a good one. You get a credit off the next year's season ticket renewal to the value of what your minus a 10% admin fee.

      This would surely be a huge incentive?

      But they made it better this year, allowing the cash out of credits.

      Additonally, there is also the facility to transfer your ticket to a friend or family member so saving you the issues of handing over your card for a 4% fee

      All looks very sensible and hopefully ours will mirror something like this.

      I have a question - if I buy a bronze membership now will it be applied to my account straight away so I can buy a ticket for the city game tonight?

      I read somewhere something about 2 weeks, unless you already have some points from last year?

      Others have reported that membership buying rights come into effect 14 days after purchase.
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      From a business point of view I understand the rationale of vouchers as it doesn't impact cash flow in the way refunds do but it also means the club gets the cash three times.

      1) original ST sale at cheaper pro rated value
      2) ticket resale at inflated value (diff between ST price and full sale category A/B/C price - could be c+15/20 on a full adult seat)
      3) issue voucher for 15, used against purchase of shirt from the shop (unit cost 10 to the club?), (50-15)- cost = +25

      The economics to the club are compelling but the incentive to the fans is limited.
