Haven't been able to get a ticket for FGR 20:05 - Aug 5 with 2412 viewsLegendofthePhoenix

Despite it being one of the closest to where I live. Ironic really, that with FGR as the only Carbon neutral football club in the UK, the away fans will be creating a huge carbon footprint getting there from Suffolk. As a silver member, tickets sold out before they got to people like me. I have said on here before that there should be an option for Silver members to get a couple of games per season where they have the same priority as Gold members. Maybe you don't give a flying f**k about climate change. But if my idea was taken up, it would help towards reducing the carbon footprint of football in general. Silver membership seems like just a waste of 30 quid.

Understand your disappointment but not sure what you expect? We have a big fan base and games like this were never going to get to silver members.

It might be £30 but the home ticket on its own is worth about £25 so not like you've been mugged.

But that wouldn't be fair on season ticket holders who go to all home games and then on top of that pay for a gold card for the privilege of visiting some of these smaller grounds where capacity is more restricted. I for one would be annoyed if you as a silver card holder got a ticket ahead of me. I'm using the bus so pretty sustainable

The main reason people get GCs is for ticket priority…. Giving that away devalues that feature.

Unfortunately, while we’re in this division, this will be an issue that will rear its head for the popular away games.

This is really bizarre.

You're equating a membership scheme run by the football club you support to climate change and the distance you live from a club you don't support.

It's really odd.

Can I just ask why me travelling 150 miles round trip every other week just for home games should mean I miss out on limited ticket away games because you live more local? And then why on earth you’re pretending climate change is the reason you want the gold card/silver card rules changed?

As a general point, irrespective of the climate change issue, Silver Membership in L1 just seems like a waste, because the only point in having it is to get ticket priority, but if the allocations for many games are sold out before ever getting to Silver Members, then it doesn't work. Obviously, the reason Gold card holders have the Gold card is also to get priority for the away games. But the way it is set up is that gold cards get priority at every away game. in my opinion, it would be a better system if Silver holders were allowed to choose 2 or 3 games a season where they get the same ticket priority as a GC. I happen to think that would be a fairer way of doing it (but don't expect many GC holders to agree).
Then this week, reading up about the Zero Carbon approach of FGR made me realise that some clubs are thinking more about the impact that football has on the environment. Having thousands of fans criss-crossing the country every week does result in lots of CO2 production. This would be reduced if there was a way of fans having shorter journeys (amongst other things including mode of transport). Introducing a mechanism that gave a higher ticket priority to fans that live closer to matches would help towards that. Most fans see their loyalty to following their club across the land as so far above environmental concerns that this doesn't even figure in the decision. The closest games to me this season are all at 3 pm on Saturdays, so will all sell out before I get a chance to buy a ticket. Which means I will be creating more CO2 by travelling to games further away if I want to see Town live. Taking CO2 into consideration in which games we all attend is a different way of thinking about match prioritisation. The piece in the Athletic about which grounds (50 including PR) will be suffering annual flooding events by 2050 is sobering. My idea about Silver Cards is just a small step that could be taken towards helping achieve a lower carbon footprint.

What a complete load of BS, you don’t give a flying fk about climate change really is what I’m guessing, I bet there are no other instances in your life where you apply the same principles.

You’re just having a blub about not being able to get a ticket to a game that is closest to you when you could have got a ticket in the home end if you were that bothered!

I’d love to know what other games that are close to you that you talk of, I’m assuming Cheltenham and Shrewsbury? I’m a ST holder and easily got tickets for Shrewsbury last season, FGR was always going to be a difficult one because it’s a ground that many or most will never have been to

No doubt where you live makes a big difference. Oxford and Wycombe, as well as FGR will sell out this season before getting to Silver members. Last year Wycombe was an evening match, so less demand and I got one. Sitting on your hands in the home section is miserable.

Considering most fans will be getting to away games via some form of public transport the C02 emissions aren't really a big deal.

If everyone was taking one car each you may have a point.

It makes literally no sense at all.

Annoyed that silver membership is pointless - fine, but no one holds a gun to your head to get it.

The climate link is just bizarre, and only applies to this very specific example/game and this supporter.
