Only 83 tickets.
« on: September 5, 2003, 03:40:58 am »
 8) Is it true? Picked up a regular Euro Red in my cab tonight, he said we're only getting 400 tickets from Olimpia. Also hearing conflicting reports that Lonsdales have/have not got tickets.[ not that I'm travelling with them.]. Any updates.

I was at the ticket office yesterday afternoon for blackburn tickets and enquired about them and was told no allocation had been made yet.

I'd be very surprised if only got only 400 (3 1/3 %). With regard to Lonsdale I should imagine they have to reach a given number of bookings to make it commercially viable, proably a couple of 100, which would be half the suggested figure.

To be honest I cant see Lonsdale getting the numbers to make it commercially viable and therefore cancelling it.

Though returning to the initiall point of only 400 tickets?? It does rasie acouple of points in my mind.

1. Would it be enough?? I know every man and his dog on this site are going but how meny did we take to Valencia??

2. Given that the allocation is not enough to supply "the hordes", how will it be allocated ("other than badly"). The club would know that in at least the first round we would draw a club from one of the lesser footballing nations of europe (eg Scandinavian, former Eastern Block, etc) and that ticket demand would not be that great and therefore not need make any initial guidelines.
However, if demand outstrips supply, ignoring Lonsdale will it be
a) First come first served?? Some people have been seeming to be hanging back until they have been officially told which piece of paper to fill in instead of just playing dum and sending in last sesons.
b) Points make prizes!! They will allocate limited tickets according to games gone to last season in Europe.

Though for those who fail to obtain a ticket what will be the cost of ticket from a toute be??

From memory (having gone to Valencia last October) I think it was about 1000 and we did not sell out our allocation.

I am confident that supporters who did all the Euro aways last season will get a match ticket.

Firstly, it was a few hundred less went to Valencia (maybe 800 at most).  Quite a few people were on holiday and bought tickets out there.

Secondly, according to the 'woman in the ticket office' on being asked if tickets would be allocated first to those that went to games last season, she replied, ' No idea'. That was a couple of days ago.  

Thirdly, if we take 400 for this game, we'll be doing well.  Wouldn't surprise me if Lonsdale do not bother running a trip due to lack of numbers and the cost involved for such a low key game at this point in the season.

Doubt if that many even went to 4 Euros. Before the Celtic game, less than 400 had been to all the games.  That was verified by the ticket office as the had informed me that I was guaranteed a ticket for later games that season (if we had won) because of the numbers I had already been to.

yep we'd been told we were "guaranteed" tix to all the remaining games around Celtic - had 5 tickets if you include that.

In the new season ticket guidelines it mentioned that for league away games priority would be given to those whohad been away last season. Nothing was mentioned about last seasons euro aways...

Do they not wipe the slate clean for the new season for Euro aways? So you start with 0 and build up your Euro aways from 1st match?

So much for loyalty if that is the case, it seems strange though that LFC are basing loyalty on last season for Prem Away, League Cup and FA Cup, to not do so for the UEFA cup.

Valencia last season wasn't based on any loyalty to the previous seasons Euro campaign, but I don't think LFC were geared up to know.

Last season each season ticket holder had a fan card, and European travel Card for non season ticket holders, plus a database that attempts to be accurate in knowing games attended  ;D

It is only fair that for the first game (at least) that continuation is observed, and then base future games on this one, or is this too logical for the ticket office ?

to be fair kopite4eva I think European games are a totally different scenario than premier league away games and we never sell out the first euro away .....
