    Albion pass on reclaimed tickets from banned fans to kids charities

    Surely #barberout this time...

    "Brighton & Hove Albion are turning a negative into a positive by donating tickets reclaimed from anti-social fans to local children, who otherwise might not have the chance to watch Premier League football.

    The club has made a number of tickets available to children via the Rocking Horse Children’s Charity, Extratime – a charity that works with children and young people with disabilities in Brighton & Hove – and by working with Brighton & Hove City Council’s fostering services.

    The tickets are those which have been reclaimed from fans who’ve been excluded from the stadium due to anti-social behaviour, although the club has re-allocated the seats within the stadium."

      Cynical PR from our favourite moneyman.

      Sounds like a handful of tickets - many of which as single seats would have been hard to shift anyway.

      Will be a DISGRACE if the South Stand is half empty on Saturday.
      The BHAFC forum is utter shite. They literally talk about everything except their own football club on there.

      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      Or the actual seats of those banned have been offered to the next on the waiting list who were after single seats and a small group of seats current not STH seats have been offered to the charity. Its not as if one seat would be given to a child within a full row

      That still leaves the hard to shift singles though. @Gazwag has the answer to how these might be dealt with if they chose to sell them as new STs...

      BarberOut can’t win, can he? This action reduces the income the club could generate, by giving seats away to kids, and still he gets accused of being a “moneyman”. Couldn’t make it up.

      Good for him . He knows how to get himself good publicity but lets face it it is about very few tickets and doubt includes games against big boys. Appreciate ticket prices were reduced against West Brom but shelf was empty. Surely these could have been given to children or the needy.

      I wonder how many seats / tickets are involved? How many people have been banned / declined tickets this season?

      My guess, based on nothing in particular, is about 30 tickets.
