    Ever Got In For Nothing or Without Ticket?


    0 Not allowed!
    my eldest brother got into the '79 FA Cup Final without a ticket

    I got into the Belgian Grand Prix in 1998 without one,OK a little easier,bit of chainlink fencing with some barbed wire on the top,mind you the local OB were patrolling with Rotties so you had to choose your spot well

    as far as football is concerned not much joy,one time at Northampton (league cup,Poskett winner)was lurking around the turnstile area,what with it being a cricket ground thought it would be easy,OB noticed,explained I didn't have enough money to get in,which was true and he kindly had a word with the bloke on the turnstile and me & my mate were allowed in for free

    pretty sure at Oldham there was a hole in the fence,but OB came in and said the gates ain't even open yet!
    so was marched out and had to pay

      Once and only time at Old Trafford to see some random League cup game (possibly they were playing Barnet circa 2005?) when i was at uni, me and my housemate got held up by traffic and arrived just before half time we eventually convinced them to let us in

      Used to go to England games regular at the old wembley stadium for nothing.

      1st time was against the Dutch some time in the 80's , there was 100's lock out abd a few starting to try and kick the gates in. As we sat back and watch the action we noticed a small portacabin where fans were queing up and noticed a few running away laughing. Having stopped one chap , asked him what was going on he said they are tickets for collection just go up and make a name up.
      We did, and they started to search for the named tickets but couldn't find them, so they said that because they couldn't find them they would give us complementries instead!
      From then on we did it every England game , eventually they moved the ticket collection over to wembley arena and would just have one ticket and write how many people were to have access.
      Good scam that worked for a while...

      Mate of ours from the Palmeira pub was a steward and led 6 of us in via some labyrinth under the West Stand to watch the BHA v Man Utd Beckham debut game at the Goldstone.

      Saw West Ham v Man City 2nd leg. Went Comps window, asked girl to check if ticket left for me, went back 20 mins later, asked to check again. Obviously wasn't one but she said "You can have this one". Happy days.

      Millwall a couple of a few years back...went to the open staff door and walked through all the stewards who were having a briefing and on to pitch side...no one even gave me a second look.
