I did tour of ground and trophy viewing last week. Was chatting to an official who was monitoring the tunnel area. He said, all being well,  club is aiming for about 12k in October. Seemed to know what he was talking about.

Take off some of those tickets for hospitality, sponsors etc, then it really will be a bun fight for STHs!

Yeah, government are still aiming for October

But it's probably like when the season was first suspended until April 4th, when everyone knew it wasn't actually going to come back on April 4th.

Will be L post code seasies first most likely to limit travel and stop away fans

Can also see the club scrapping the credit gained for attending any games in 2020/21
They cannot punish people credit wise who've been going 20 years who aren't wanting to attend now because of health concerns being in a high risk group

Got an lfc survey for hospitality, one of the questions, says with government guidelines allowing business entertaining only being allowed with one other household how likely are you to attend. This could cause a lot of issues, because generally business clients come from different households etc.

Yeah, any games attended this coming season most definitely shouldn't count towards buying for the 21/22 season. I think they'll be reasonable in that regard though.
I don't think I agree that season ticket holders should get priority over members this season either. Some members have been going home and away for longer than some season ticket holders have had their ticket. A few organise the flags pre match etc. I don't see how it's fair that they should lose out on the opportunity to go with reduced capacity.

Theyíre speculating massively in my opinion and probably to get some cash in the door short term

Nothing has been announced in the UK and even on RAWK there are a few hospitality ticket holders so would  think weíd hear if the club has said anything

Advice would be to give that a big swerve

I am not even considering using this offer as I always have and will continue to buy my tickets from Liverpool FC or from a supporters club where the tickets come directly from Liverpool FC. From comments on facebook pages I just noticed that several people have used this "agency" in the past and nobody ever reported any issues. I have always only paid face value for my tickets and never used an agency and will not do it this season either if supporters are let in at some point.

However if I am not able to buy tickets with my 14 credits from last season I might end up bying a hospitality package but it will something that I will hate to do as I am against the rip off of paying multiple times the face value for a ticket with a sandwich and a match day program.

I know you have 14 credits + from last season but could you not accept that next season weíre just not going to get the opportunity to go? Iíve made peace with it as a member with 13+ from the last two seasons that even with the best will in the world I wonít get the opportunity to go next season.

The corporate ticket wonít be the same with all the protocols in place and it will probably be the same price as in a normal season.

If you only had 14 credits, then there'll be 40,000 people in front of you based on last seasons credit... you shouldn't expect anything till we're back at 75%+ capacity

I don't think members will get a look in until it's back to full capacity. As for membership, they made it clear on the info that ticket access was not included for now so I don't see them giving out refunds.

Completely unrelated but how shit are the membership packs this year!? Thought they'd beef them up a bit with the fact that there won't be access to tickets but it's just a badge and a really cheap and thin scarf.

If you haven't yet renewed I wouldn't bother. I'm pretty sure you can't lose your credits and if by some miracle we do have access to tickets then you can always renew it then.

I do not think that there are 40.000 members with more credits than me as I assume that the cancelled games do not count as credits so noone has more than 15 credits. If they do count then I am on 17 and not 14.
I do not expect to get anything next season which is why I am considering buying hospitality tickets if they become available and then just go for a couple of games.

As if LFC are going to sell hospitality packages. They have corp and non corp STHs with commitments to get in first.

Unless you mean buying someone elses ticket - which I imagine they will be super strict on and probably cost over a grand off a tout.

You're forgetting about the 26,000+ season ticket holders, 5000+ hospitality season tickets, hospo members tickets, sponsors, player allocations and the other 5000+ members who will have 14 or 15 out of 15

They're all in front of you mate

https://www.brightonandhovealbion.com/news/1781458/2500-tickets-available-for-amex-friendly-on-saturday

There's an article in The Athletic that seems to suggest Brighton is one of the more "ideal" stadiums for partially filled stadiums. It's one of the PL away stadiums I've not been to yet but I guess it's a very small stadium "out of the way". But I didn't imagine the concourses would be particularly big?

Concourses are dead wide. They are even wider in the main stands - you can walk around the ground and go in any of the stands after the game.

Problem there is nearly everyone comes in on the train and the huge queues for the local train after

ahhh interesting. Hopefully grab a spare in 2024  ;)

They're encouraging travelling by car but then I can imagine some families/friends might all just jump into a car together to save money. No suggestion there's any timings for when to get to your seat that was suggested. Also the temperature checks are 'random' which is a little odd imo.

Other good thing with brighton is they have good transport links. Train station next to the ground etc. Compare that to Anfield we have shit transport links.

Wouldn't necessarily say the 1 train every half an hour Brighton get counts as a good transport link despite there being a train station outside the ground. Its utter hell to get away from, Anfield is much easier.

Can it be a real signal?

That's why they keep the bars open and TVs on after the game isn't it, to encourage people to stay a bit while the crowds go down.

They have buses and a park and ride too I think, but yeah, they still need a better train service. At least local trains are free with a match ticket though.

Would disagree, with brighton the fact local travel is included is a good thing, having checked the time table it seems as itís every 15 mins increasing to every 10 on match days to brighton which isnít bad. 1 train an hour from Liverpool to London now thatís bad. But for Anfield the fact their isnít a train station nearby is a huge disadvantage. The queues post match for the buses back to lime street are ridiculous.  In Covid times say 5k people use the busses with a 30 person limit youíll need 167 buses to get everyone back. Compared to other top clubs we are the only one with no train or tram stop within walking distance.

You've clearly never stood in a queue for 2 hours to get away from the Amex then. Its horrific getting away from the stadium and this was before I realised the bars in the ground stayed open. Anfield is much easier to get away from after the game. Also pretty much every home game comes with a relief train back to London now as well.

Iíve done it mate, i found the queue at brighton to get a train back to London worse personally.  Also yeh you have the relief trains but I donít know how they would work, if itís no standing, only pre-booked seats etc, think Avanti will need a special timetable to clear football fans during a pandemic.

Anyone read what LeIcester doing? ballots galore, and you have to pay to be in a ballot.

Have read briefly the plans that Leicester have and like the sound of it to be fair. Gives Season Ticket holders as well as a percentage of Members the opportunity to get to a game, while having a ballot cycle to make sure if youíve been successful once, you canít register to go again until all qualifying fans have had a chance to go.

Brighton is an absolute ballache to get away from unless you leave a few minutes early and get one of the first trains back into Brighton
