Cant believe our passive season ticket holders , why on earth would you not buy a ticket for the biggest game in a decade. Our passive library of a home support base should take a leaf from the away support. The north stand is ok but green king ,brittania and cobbold sooooo quiet. Anyone else go to shed wed away ,my god their home support really create an atmosphere , our lot sit in silence or moan , why go if your not at least going to let out a huge fart ,or something on the noise front. COYB wake up.

We MUST make this a COMPLETE sell out - a chance to get new fans in and of course to BEAT NAARIDGE! And then, and judging by previous efforts we need to improve immensely, it would be great to hear PR rocking the way it did under Burley..... COYB

|BYRNE_16 added 21:43 - May 5|

I'll say it again, if our ground only held 25,000 which would be more than adequate for our fan-base then no one would be complaining and a full house would be guaranteed more than once a season. all the stadium represents is the legacy of financial mismanagement under Sheepshanks and not filling it to capacity is no way a poor reflection of town fans.

Didn't mean to vote down the first post! Wish they did a proper mobile version of this site!!
|SloughBlue added 21:57 - May 5|
Of course we want a full house but if it's less then we will be missing the half empty contingent.The ones who are talking us out of any chance:perhaps they forget our last semi final v Arsenal and that class striker Priskin scoring the winner.Anything is possible if we create an atmosphere in all areas and get behind the team for 90 minutes(or 95 if Noël Hunt plays!!) Can't wait.COYB

But we only have around 14000 season tickets so the rest will not sell out until tomorrow - no problems

How many season ticket holders do you lot think we have?! A lot of them can't be sold til tommorow, there was none available at all in my entire section to buy extra tickets for friends or family
|itfc1981 added 22:46 - May 5|
We will easily sell the rest by Sat, no problem.

Re NSL: Correct me if I'm wrong, but you basically just sang "our ground's too big for us"?
|Marcus added 01:44 - May 6|
Do consider that season ticket holders who decide to sit in a different seat will be able to make their purchase and the then their seat isn't released until later today.
|truckertractorboy added 04:45 - May 6|
Does anyone know the official amount they can sell . I know the grounds capacity but seems its against the scum i wud think we will lose some due to extra segregation?
|trncbluearmy added 05:24 - May 6|
That's a brilliant effort
assuming platinum and gold holders are also season ticket holders and we have about 13000 season ticket holders the vast majority bought their extra ticket.
Today was the only day it could sell out which will happen easily

In the Magic era we sold out against Norwich if I remember rightly, on the back of the head of steam we had built up in the PL. Now we are a "business" it is just too pricey for some to attend matches regularly, although you would expect anyone to prioritise this one. Norwich are going to give us stick if we can't sell out, but their urban area is quite a bit bigger than Ipswich's, so they are going to have better crowds. I'll be disappointed if we don't sell out, but I reckon we'll be around 28,000, including the inbreds.

Go to the shop for tickets as the web site is utter poop!
|Keaneish added 07:34 - May 6|
NSL - wasn't our stadium bigger prior to Sheepshanks complying to the taylor report?
|werderbremenblue added 07:35 - May 6|
Anyone who thinks this wont sell out is a moron!
|blue7579 added 07:42 - May 6|
I know some scum and they have already booked their hotel for the final.
