    Canceling Season Ticket


    0 Not allowed!
    I donít get to as many matches and Iím at the point of doing away with my ST. The club tell me I need to invest in Bronze membership at £22 a season. My question for non STHs is how easy is it to get match day tickets without membership or do I need to get a membership. I canít see me getting to no more then half a dozen games next season. Anyone got Paul Barbers e-mail as I may be tempted to keep my ST if I could use the vouchers towards my ST instead of getting endless shop vouchers

      It's easy to get tickets so long as you get on the ticket site on release day. Even if you miss the first day (for a big game) it's still easy to get tickets in less desirable parts of the ground. This is with Bronze, I think it's pretty bloody hard to get them without bronze. Not many games have gone on general sale I don't think.

      Bronze membership is essential if you want a chance at the big games. I don’t think Chelsea or Liverpool made general sale. Arsenal wil be the next big test as the Bronze period here ends tomorrow.

      If you have a season ticket holder mate then there is a 2 day window in which, if there are any left after Bronze memberhsip you can get in before they go on sale to the masses.

      For the big games there is also a point threshold plus bronze needed to buy when they first go on sale, but as long as you buy early in the main bronze window you should be fine without having to worry about points. But it sounds like you will do a few games anyhow, so you will prob have the points needed.

      £22 is not a bad price for securing some certainty on tickets. There are a few other perks included, one of which is a discounted ticket to at least one home game which will cover over half the cost if you take it. It also keeps you in front on the masses if there is away game availability after us STH’s have had their fill.
      Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.

      Only Liverpool and possibly Chelsea didn’t make the general sale. I’m not sure if either made the 2 day window for STH’s.

      As I just said, what happens with Arsenal tomorrow will be a good test. I expect to see a few singles here and there which will be snapped up within an hour or two when STH’s can buy an additional.

      Canceling Season Ticket

      Not really interested in top 6 teams if we stay up next season. Just wanted to see how easy it is to get tickets before I cancel my ST for next season. More then happy with cup games and games against the teams around us, added to the tv games

      I've purchased tickets to Palace [both matches], Stoke, Southampton and Everton this season without bronze membership. Easy to get tickets for all those, admittedly those teams are not top 6.

      Did they go to general sale or only on sale to people with a purchase history?

      Anyway I personally gauge it by how difficult it is to get two tickets together in the north stand.

      A shame that there is no facility to share a ST, as that would be a solution for you?

      Yes and the club have clamped down this season, I have to go through ticket exchange and there is only so much you can buy in shop. It would be better if it could be used against cost of renewing ST
