Called the club on Thursday to pay for disabled parking for the Rotherham match as my son is in wheelchair .. something we have done numerous times this season and past seasons.
The very politie lady I spoke to said, “sorry I can’t sell you a ticket till December 6th”, when I asked why? I was told “away fans this season have priority”. So I explained that without parking we will be returning the tickets and the reply was, “that’s fine and you are allowed to do that”.
On the club website it says they operate a first come first servered for disabled parking ... not away fan first and then home fans are given parking 2 days before the match, if there are any left ... but does explain why it’s been more difficult to get parking this season.
I know that disabled parking is at a premium but it does seem odd that they put away fans first over their own registered disabled fans.
Is it just me or does this not sound right? It’s certainly not encouraging me, my son and my 75 year old dad to attend!
... and after today’s result I feel like sending the tickets back and telling them to do one!
