Pay-at-the-gate fans allowed back first

Recommended Posts

I'd hope that wouldn't happen till a full return is allowed.

Absolutely - would be harsh on fans that can’t get in who want to watch the game and would sever that income stream.

Just wonder when we might actually get back?

Another thing I’ve wondered is how the club would manage access / egress to seats and the toilet situation, catering etc?

Again, Ross County seem to have managed, why couldn't we...........................oh, wait. :rolleyes:

So far in the limited tests with Ross County, ICT etc those allowed in have been ST holders. Besides the fact these people have paid up front for a season worth of games there are also practical reasons.

1. Track and Trace - the Club already has all the details of ST holders so can quickly chase up T&T if there is an outbreak of Covid.

2. Ease of issuing entry tickets. The Club can simply email a 'ticket' to those whose name has been lucky in the draw.

For non ST holders there would have to have a public sale which would be time-consuming selling tickets, taking contact details and the risk of a large number of people gathering without a 2 metre gap. There is also the cost of opening the ticket office. The alternative is sell tickets on-line meaning when we play the sevco or Sellic the stadium is full of bigots and Track & Trace goes out the window.

3. Fairness. The same non-ST holders would be able to apply for a ticket  each time possibly depriving other supporters from seeing a game.

4. More income. ST holders have already paid up front. If they get entry then those that really wanted entry can pay for PPV. Little income is generated with 300 fans considering the costs involved.

So ST holders should get entry.

ICT are changing the way they decide on who gets access as both games they’ve had have been short of “capacity”.

That's what I thought could happen to a few teams.

People might not be willing to take the risk, however small, at this stage. 

All in all, a fecking mess.

Speaking personally as a household with 2 STs we have absolutely no interest in travelling to attend games where spectating is limited and with restrictions. Happy now to wait for normality which should be next season. I appreciate that's probably a minority view but it really makes very little appeal as a match day experience with no opportunity to meet up pre or post match for a pint and sitting in a sparsely populated stadium in masks with set arrival and departure times etc. Not for us so happy to let whoever most benefits the club go if it comes to that this season (personally I'm doubtful pre split at least)

There's probably an element of it just not being the same either. I'm not sure I'd fancy going to a game when there's only a few hundred in the ground. A big part of the enjoyment is the atmosphere IMO

I'd thought this could be the case and you might be surprised how many feel the same way.

It's very similar reasons to us choosing not to go abroad on holiday, not even close to what I'd call a holiday.

Would totally agree with that. We have 2 ST's  but not bothered at all about being included in the first 200/300 allowed back in. Would rather wait until everyone allowed in.

Not straightforward mate.

Depends on the numbers but there's a chance the pay at the gate punters wouldn't match the numbers allowed in.

Does anybody know what other clubs, Ross County for example, have done? 

Not sure how they were allocating tickets, but I'm sure I read that Inverness were struggling to get 300 fans to take tickets for 2 games so far, and have announced it's now "first come, first served"1

Aye, @HSS said that, which isn't a major surprise.
