Town Tighten Ticketing Ahead of Leeds
Monday, 8th Apr 2019 17:19

Town have made a number of changes to their ticketing policy ahead of the Leeds United game on the final day of the season, Sunday 5th May.

Leeds, who are almost certain to go into the game still in the promotion race, have taken their full allocation of 2,000 tickets for the match with the Blues not giving the Whites the additional areas they were afforded last season.

With Leeds supporters therefore likely to try to obtain seats elsewhere in the ground, the club are only selling tickets to Town fans who are on the database with purchase history prior to this season and one per person, meaning each ticket must be linked to an individual customer number, although the Friends and Family option online can be used to buy multiple tickets in one transaction.

The option to print tickets at home will not be open for the match with all tickets posted in the week commencing April 29th. 

The Ticket Enquiry Centre won’t be open on the day but the Ticket Office will operate from Constantine Road for this match only.

Ultimate members purchasing one additional ticket can do so from today, Silver members purchasing one ticket can do so from tomorrow, Gold card holders purchasing one additional ticket can do so from Wednesday and season ticket holders purchasing one additional ticket can do so from Friday, with tickets going on general sale, one per person, from Monday 15th April.

Town say any home supporters discovered to be passing a ticket to an away supporter will face a ban from purchasing tickets at Portman Road.

Still think they will travel in far greater numbers as it should or could be a big day of celebration ..... headache me thinks for the police .

Clearly they are going to have a lot of supporters travelling with or without tickets.

We will be long gone by then. So personally I think we should give them the South stand upper as well as the usual Cobbold blocks and charge the dirty gits £40 a ticket and up the price of food and drink. Why not make a killing out of them??? We could give them 8000 tickets, they will sell them.

I think it's a good call by the club. If we gave them the whole of the upper Cobbold like last year, and then things didn't go their way on the pitch, it could turn nasty ( like it did a few years back at Elland Road when Alan Lee sent them down). We will be playing with no pressure, they may need something to secure automatic promotion.

How does the friends and family thing work? I have a customer number for away games, I think, can I buy two tickets but in separate transactions of can I literally only buy one?

They have their fair share of knob heads but so do we - Brentford away last year ?
Most Leeds fans I know are over 50 and harmless- backed up when you go to Elland rd. Seems harsh that we will not give them more tickets - hopefully a win will keep Norwich down

People are saying it the clubs fault for not giving Leeds more. I’m pretty sure if they can only give more than 2000 if they get permission that the police will put out more staff
