What's clear here is that people aren't spending long enough in Brighton.

Brighton is a great place to go for a bevy or a night out. Just questioning the logistics around the Amex.

Club never reveal numbers because then people wouldnt buy them when they know theres a few hundred tickets in the additional sale and 150,000 members trying to get them...

Not quite, but I bet globally with international memberships the number isn't far off...

Its probably around the 80-100k members mark last season, some people will only try for one or two games a year, some might even just want it for the discounts

I think you'll be surprised by how many international people just buy memberships for the other non-ticket perks and feeling a 'part of' the club. Also if you have a couple kids and/or buy a lot of merch, it makes sense to buy a membership for the discount alone.

League games seem to be boxed off for STHs but for cup games surely there's a chance for members with full credits at least getting into a ballot, only seems fair

You’d like to think so. But time will tell I guess.

That or they’ll go back over 2-3 seasons rather than just the most recent one

Absolute limbo for Members like me who haven’t renewed but are monitoring the situation in the background. Cup credits for UCL especially are vitally important to keep hold of.

As a full credit member that would be great news if true, I wasn't expecting any joy for league games for a long time.

Graham said something like this on the Season ticket fan update thread- seems as though members with max credits will be recognised as equal to season ticket holders.

When you say max, do you mean 19 or 13+

I'm not sure- this is the quote I'm referring to:

I think you'll see Members will get the same pro-rata chance to get in as STHs and Hospitality.And an effort for anyone wanting to go getting the same number of games during this situation.

I always assumed it would be 15 (number of home games last season), but sounds as though the club will have about 25% of season ticket holders and 25% of members with a certain number of games in the ground. Therefore, to make sure everyone in the ballot gets to the same number of games they will have to adjust the number of games from last season members require. If they decide that everyone on the ballot goes to 1 in 4 games, and this doesn't change even when capacity is increased, then the credits required will get lower. Or, the club might decide to increase the number of games people in the ballot get to go to, which would mean credits needed would go up/ stay the same. Graham also says later that it's not decided yet what the credit requirements for members is going to be, so I guess we've just got to wait to see what the club decide.

Can't see them allowing fans back in on the date they suggested a few months ago with them banging on about cases going up

Personally expect an announcement postponing the relaxation of these current restrictions to come in the next 2-3 weeks

Absolutely spot on from the club, this

I'm amazed members will even get a chance this season, but a very welcome surprise.

Wonder what the criteria will be. STHs + 13s as priority as suggested above would be fair. I'd imagine a fair chunk of those probably will swerve it (especially games against smaller clubs). Seems to suggest it will just be a ticket sale and not a ballot.

ticket sale seems really unfair, when tickets are so limited, rotating ballot is clearly the best option, even a standard ballot for each game is better

Definitely, it'll only advantage those with the technical know-how / ability really. I'd have hoped for a ballot but I guess added administration for the ticket office isn't a good thing  ;D

I'm probably going to give it a miss for now and take stock in January. Out of my usual group it's a bit of a 50/50 split on whether people intend to go or not.

People who are uneasy with going will probably be more comfortable with not going with it now confirmed no game this season will count as a credit.

As for the know-how, it's a brand new ticket system this season. No-one will know the short cuts (unfortunately :( ), well apart from the bot-builders.

I think that's about as fair as it could be. I live quite far away and I have written off next season. Would rather people nearer the ground get to go, but know that I won't lose out with any credits by doing so.

I may do the same as RainbowFlick - see what the situation is like in January. Maybe I get to go to a game or two in the season. But if not it's no worries, just hopefully the entire coronavirus situation improves for everyone the world over.

Very fair and clever by the club. This initiative will boost the membership sales now that its every man for himself for both league and cup games. I hope the new ticketing system can handle 100,000+ fighting for 10,000 or so tickets  ;D

The only thing that doesn’t sit right with me is that someone who’s never been to a match before has as much opportunity of going to a European semi final than someone who hasn’t missed a game in 30-40 years.

Apologies missed that. So they’re going to pluck a figure of xx amount of credits from last season who will have a shot? Which means basically if you haven’t been to that xx figure of games then you haven’t got a chance at all (on the premise that the majority of ST holders pursue tickets).

I had 13 last year which doesn’t include the 3 that got refunded based on the virus. Wasn’t expecting a sniff at all but now a small glimmer of hope maybe.

I’m guessing season tickets will be in a ballot and a certain amount say 10% will be held back for members with x amount of credits.  There’s far too many ticket holders and members that qualify and I suspect they want season tickets holders to all get some games. Furthermore I can’t imagine we do it different to what Arsenal and Leicester are doing.

Only question that remains - behind closed doors games, yay or nay for credits? The wait continues hahaha

My guess is a ballot giving one game in three based on 27,000 STH’s and between 5,000 and 10,000 members with the required credits, will be interesting to see the hospitality split though
