Away allocations & common sense


Recommended Posts

Tonight, I saw 2,000 Wednesday fans with 3,000+ empty seats around them

 

On Monday we'll see 2,000 Sunderland fans in an upper tier that holds 4,000

 

Sometimes, as humans, we overcomplicate things

 

I think it's fair to say this is f*%King ridiculous

Been trying to get my mind around this for a day or two. It’s proved inadequate for our games and it’s clearly even more inadequate for the Championship play offs. 
The only reason I can come up with is that as the games are arranged at short notice there is a perceived policing and safety issue.

 

Thoughts anyone?

I was talking to a Sunderland fan yesterday. He said that both clubs had agreed on a 5k away allocation but the EFL put the kaibosh on it and stipulated 2k max

If that is true it is shocking. EFL actively trying to stop fans watch football and the clubs make money.

 

If it is true, EFL should refund the 3k x £20 ticket receipts lost to both clubs.

For what reason?

2000 is meant to be the minimum.

 

Clubs are meant to be able to agree for bigger than the minimum though!

2000, or a percentage of the ground capacity, there are no guidelines for tickets given to each club, the two clubs agree between themselves.

i thought it was an “agreement” from previous playoffs. All monies pooled and split 4ways 

 

final pooled and split 50/50

 

 

i stand to be corrected

i think youve nailed it .......3pm saturday no one knew who was playing or where ...4 clubs have to sell around 90,000 tickets and distribute them in 5 days 4 police forces have to organise the safety ......the minimal away support isnt a surprise

The 2k figure benefits us. Home in leg 2 with a crowd almost entirely of home fans. If we can wake the South Stand up, we should be able to be the difference
