192 left... Rather than all of these being in a remaining few blocks as per this morning, they're spread around the stadium. How's that happened? The ticket exchange isnt open..
I guess returns or seats they thought had been sold etc. you’re quite right though.

Players and staff comps become available, disabled spots not sold.

Less than 200 available with all the extras added yesterday, only about 10 'pairs' together so crowd will be rammed to the rafters on Sunday for this

424 I make it now, I guess these are people that have bought then returned? Or do we release some for sponsorship and competitions?

Either way it should be buzzing and my daughters looking forward to her second live match!

lol this is ridculous, everytime it gets low, the club seem to keep finding more tickets to put on - wish they'd do the same for Spurs away so I can get one :)
There's always an amount held back for comp tickets, players friends and families, club employees, sponsors and the like. When these are not taken up they are then put on sale.

The same does happen for away games too but in much smaller numbers which is why a few do pop up a week or two before the fixture so keep checking.

I can appreciate that but surely they could have had a cut-off date earlier than this, so that fans could have had more of a chance to pick up tickets in a part of the ground they prefer, or perhaps get 2 togther, rather than those getting tickets late-on for wtahever reason having to take anywhere, when an ooption could have been open to them.

They may be encouraging purchasing of tickets in certain areas first of course, by holding certain ones back.

Looks like mostly single tickets, so I guess they wanted to encourage filling the emptier blocks containing groups of tickets first?

Just seen that the 'holding up a card' Mosaic event is definitely happening too. Grimsby have confirmed on their website and said it was the hosts (BHA) idea and request

So Grimsby have one in their end and I guess we have one in the North - god knows what itll be though (probably Seagulls and Haddocks)

Yes, that may be the case, of course, though I cannot help feeling that this should be the other way round -the "customer" sorry fan is king!
