And presume therefore we have already reached it?

Might end up with genuine waiting list for away season tickets and not home :D

Prior to 2016/17 there were around 2 to 3 hundred away season ticket holders only, with the introduction of the £30 cap the club initially adivsed that they would cap away season ticket holders to a maximum of 500, in the end around 550 applied and a decision was made to grant all of those with AST's for season 2016/17. After a bit of a mix up when renewals came round, for 2017/18 AST's were given priority to renew, I understand that there are still in excess of 500 AST holders, not sure if any new AST's were taken on. I would suspect going forward that existing AST's would get priotity to renew and then if the number drops below 500 then the spare AST's would be allocated giving priority to those with most loyalty points.

Is it a club or league cap out of interest?

Surely they want as many sold as possible, if it was a thousand would it make any difference to anyone?

Genuine questions just interested as think demand would be very high next year.... plenty could afford it but didn't bother as they never had to as could always go to most games with half a dozen points.

There is a market for it knowing you can sell the tickets now due to the demand, hence those now with high points buying and selling.

By the end of this month I would have been to half our away league games but haven't used my own reference number once, which I know is feeding it but if you want to go you take a ticket when you can.

Not sure it's possible to have any more AST's due to potential low allocations, especially in cup matches, the club also have to take in to account Bond holders as they get priority over away tickets.

Increasing the cap would be not be good. The amount of people who would purely buy just for the London games and then flog the ones up north would be large.

Give us bods on low PP a chance!!

As above, new AST were already added this year....

I'm not sure it's all about the "London" games either.

Personally I prefer games further away then some of the London games.... the biggest factor for me is when the game is being played.

Saturday 3pm then it doesn't matter if it's Palace or Newcastle for me but due to work and family commitments I would struggle with a northern game on a school night for example.

if you have no points now then it could take a couple of seasons to build up enough points to get tickets and even then as everyone is aware now the bar is getting higher and higher as people are just buying to sell to keep the points up etc...

Anyway my point was if they allow more AST then I could see them going through the roof next year as the only way to really guarantee tickets

Same here MD_HM - the day and time of the game is the main issue, not the location, and the London games are not the main draw.

The games I'm not able to make are Boxing Day down at Bournemouth and Everton on a Wednesday night in November.

I called the club before the season started to enquirer about getting one and was told we have 600 and all had been taken up.

Would be interested to see how many we take to this. Only 1,777 tickets thus far. I recall this fixture went to General Sale last year. Sunday game I think.

No trains back to London, correct? I have just seen a coach that will take you back to Victoria that gets in at 6.20am.

1,777 is only the lower tier. Just checked and last train from Liverpool Lime Street to London is 20:48pm that day. The 21:34pm gets you to Wolverhampton where you can wait for the 05:00am the next day to London, getting into Euston 7:05am.

No chance you're getting back to Lime St for 21.34 after the match either.

I'll be Hornchurch coaching this one I suspect. I would use the official coach but it is not convenient to return to LS with no train home and nowhere near to park

Word on the street is I might have lift for the Saturday game :wink:

All they are saying is they will meet the commitment to announce the TV matches 6 weekes before the game.

I'm pretty sure from what I am hearing that we will play either on the Friday or Christmas Eve. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

December games up to Stoke away to be announced tomorrow.

The other December games (Newcastle, Bournemouth, Tottenham) will be announced after the LC fourth round as the QFs are the midweek before Newcastle at home, so Sky/BT are waiting to see who they can move depending on who's in the hat.
