Can't get the link on the Villa Support Twitter page to work. Is it available to ALL season ticket holders tonight? Or are we divided into blocks/number of aways attended/that sort of thing?

I'm happy they've put in the 5+ game criteria ahead of 3+ games, for all the fickle lot who only started turning up towards the end of this season ;)

I know there will be loads of requests, but if anybody who can't make it and has a booking reference I can use (maybe 5 or 3 games +) I'd be really grateful.  I'm fine for my own ticket but would like to get my brother a ticket for his 50th.  He lives in London and doesn't get to many games anymore because of work. 

Cheers

Post by: MJW01 on May 15, 2019, 01:57:19 PM
Anyone know if criteria goes by number of references or number of games attended?
My eldest and me fulfil the five game criteria but my youngest has five references but across four games.
He's attended more than enough games but I forgot to assign tickets to him earlier in the season so assigned two in his name for the Millwall game on the chance we got to Wembley.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers

Didn't get the general sale either, I tried when they were reselling the odd ticket, but the criteria stayed at 1 home league game (my ticket was cup!) as that was the criteria when it sold out - assume they'll do the same this year so keep checking if you met the criteria but just missed out.

Yeah, think a booking history of 3 should be OK.  With it being a Bank Holiday Monday and what happened last year, a few might be put off.

The play off semi final game against West Brom will not count toward the 3 or 5 home league game criteria, though will count as booking history (for the final window).

Agreed! I think this might put a spanner in the works for a fair few people.

Surely the play-offs are part of the league campaign? Otherwise they're implying that it's a totally separate competition?

Tickets don't go on sale until 5pm today anyway so if blocks 228-231 show on the map but aren't available for sale, then I presume they will be releasing blocks in stages as they did previously.

Seems a bit of a strange statement to release and doesn't really make much sense tbh. It won't affect me but it does sound contradictory so could be worded better if they are saying the playoff semi doesn't count.

Are they saying the "semi final game against West Brom will not count toward the 3 or 5 home league game criteria" for Wembley tickets...or they "will count as booking history (for the final window)" assuming the "final window" refers to Wembley tickets?

edit: I get it now..."the final window" being from Tuesday 21st May for supporters who have a home booking history this season.

I think I heard we are the away team for the first time at New Wembley.  Not sure how true it is.

Good hopefully be a good way to break our awful performances in finals there. We're usually on the left of the cameras behind the goal.

What's the allocation, 35k?

Mad to think if we got to a europa league final in near future we'd only get 6k tickets if it's at a far flung venue with limited infastructure as Baku is.

At least with play off finals you get proper allocations.

Had a total mare with this.

Had a 6pm visit this evening so set out from the office at 4.15 so I could sit by the address of the visit to try to get tickets between 5-6pm on my phone.

Refreshed on the dot of the countdown to sale and was 6646 in the queue.

Waited nearly half an hour. When I got through there was nowhere to click for play off tickets. Having searched everything I could access on the site several times, I gave up and logged out & back in again.

Straight into a booking screen. Deapite the disslyneaa of choosing and assigning tickets, I managed it but was still getting an error message.

Turns out I was trying to book a family area. Tried to work out what tells you which are family areas but couldnít tried another area and another (each time with requisite fiddly seat choosing & assigning on tiny screen) - but every time got an error message saying I was trying to book family area seats!

By now I needed to go into my visit and be focussed on a child and family in difficulty whilst trying not to think of disappearing behind the goal tickets!

Got home just after 7 & logged in to find I am number 25718 in the queue! WTF? We only have about 22000 ST holders!

(Now at 5768!)

You weren't number 25,718 in the queue - That was your queue number (everybody who logs on is given a queue number)  The next line down tells you how many people are ahead of you.  I've just checked and I was given a queue number of 27 odd thousand but only 3,500 were ahead of me.

You have to be buying at least one under 17 ticket for every 4 adults in that area or you cannot buy there.

They may well know how many kidís STs they have - but there is nothing stopping people with kids buying tickets in other parts of the stadium. There are loads left there. None anywhere else in the lower 2 tiers at present.

The play off semi final game against West Brom will not count toward the 3 or 5 home league game criteria, though will count as booking history (for the final window).

Amfy, I think you are referring to the normal Wembley criteria. This is what the Villa website says-

Family Area - Wembley Stadium have designated 1,000 seats in
Blocks 137 to 140 in the West side of the Stadium as a Family
Area for supporters. Tickets in this area are only available to
fans that are purchasing 16 and under tickets at a ratio of no
more than one adult for one child, at a maximum of four children
for every adult ticket.

Chipsticks, I understand what you say and also what is in the Twitter message.However, in the Ticket section on AVFC.co.uk regarding the Play-off Final, it does not state that the Play-off Semi Final tickets do not count towards your number of league games attended. Neither, interestingly, is there any mention of this in the Full Ticket FAQ's for the Final. I think a call to the ticket office may be best idea for me. The 3 of us get taken into a higher category if the Play-off semi final tickets count.

If ST holders can only purchase one, surely theyíll get to 5 or 3 games but not general sale ?
Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: purpletrousers on May 16, 2019, 09:54:37 AM
If anybody is speaking to the ticket office and fancied clarifying my hunches,

This is where we are at?

Allegedly about 2k less allocation than last year?

More season tkt & claret so higher demand in first windows.
Higher attendances so more more reaching 3 (and the new 5 home level)

Last year it went down to current  season home booking history, it didnít go to general sale although there were a few late (club staff) returns and frustrated folk pleading it went to general sale so they could snap them up.

So it will not go to general sale with no current home history.

Reduced supply and ?increased demand is reflected in the wording - last year the wording suggested 3 was guaranteed, this year it is subject to availability. Iím guessing a lot more dived in for 3 games in the good run.

In summary 3 is not guaranteed by the wording, but iíd estimate/hope should be fine, and even that there might be a few left to home booking history.

This is all uniformed, no ITK, any clearer/better informed opinions would be good.

Haha. I didn't realise it's on a Monday, either. I've got university classes at 9am on the Tuesday and have to get up at 5:30 to get there for 8. Oh well, I'm sure it'll be an interesting Tuesday. And a hungover one at that.

I have bitten the bullet and got ours in the upper tier now because there is no sign of new releases in the lower tier 40 mins into the new working day & I couldnít get through on the phone. In the end I thought there was no point in waiting any longer and ending up further and further back at the top.

So - we are going to Wembley - I am still not convinced that I havenít been done over - but I guess if people with a lesser history than me get better tickets, Iíll have to call it karma for the away scheme!

I am happy to be on my way anyway!

If anybody is speaking to the ticket office and fancied clarifying my hunches,

This is where we are at?

Allegedly about 2k less allocation than last year?

More season tkt & claret so higher demand in first windows.
Higher attendances so more more reaching 3 (and the new 5 home level)

Last year it went down to current  season home booking history, it didnít go to general sale although there were a few late (club staff) returns and frustrated folk pleading it went to general sale so they could snap them up.

So it will not go to general sale with no current home history.

Reduced supply and ?increased demand is reflected in the wording - last year the wording suggested 3 was guaranteed, this year it is subject to availability. Iím guessing a lot more dived in for 3 games in the good run.

In summary 3 is not guaranteed by the wording, but iíd estimate/hope should be fine, and even that there might be a few left to home booking history.

This is all uniformed, no ITK, any clearer/better informed opinions would be good.

That's presuming everyone eligible will want one.  I just think with it being a Bank Holiday, some will be put off, probably along with the fact that we were there only last year.  We will fill our end, but wouldn't surprise me if it went to down to booking history or even a few on general sale to be honest.

Post by: PeterWithesShin on May 16, 2019, 11:35:47 AM
It won't go to general sale. Slim chance it will reach booking history for this season but my guess is that it will sell out on the 3 game criteria.

If anybody really wants to go and is worried about getting a ticket, there's a hospitality package for £390 here:

http://www.clubwembley.com/events/2019/championship-play-off-final

I would have bought it myself if I'd only been left with the option of level 3.  It will be interesting to see if more areas become available today.  I suspect that they will.  When I was online at about 5.30 yesterday, there were no £98 seats available and only 3 blocks on level 2.

As noted in the tickets forum the "CW Experience"  including hospitality is. Seat only is 98 quid.

At the moment there is a "priority" sales period for CW members where they're allowed to buy one ticket per membership. Two friends have four between them. We got 2 early yesterday and 2 two at 10pm (spouse of a family member who's a Leeds fan had first dibs on the 2nd pair) all in block 244. He described there being limited availability at 10pm. Not sure how long the "priority" sales period lasts or whether more blocks will be opened up at 98 quid but it could be tough without the help of a CW member. Hope this helps and best of luck!

Post by: CJ on May 16, 2019, 12:48:35 PM
Took about 5 minutes, most of which was spent selecting a block that hasn't sold out. I've ended up near the front of the upper tier pretty much behind the dugout. And because I'm an old fogey it only cost £34 so all good!

Which is ridiculous.

Season ticket holders should have the first choice of tickets. They have left only the top tier for sale since before 7pm yesterday.

There is no way our core support should be forced into the roof while there are still tickets to be sold in prime positions.

(I appreciate this could be my away season ticket karma coming home to roost - but it isnít just affecting me - itíll actually be affecting a lot of the same supporters who have already been sold short this week by that too!)

I complained to the ticket office last year about itís.

They were very good but ultimately, itís the firm in Manchester who decides when blocks are released.  The manager of the ticket office told me to keep contacting her as they regularly get returns from corporate clients but after Iíd calmed down, I let it go.  I actually had good seats in level 2 but wanted to sit in the £98 areas, which only became available the day after Iíd purchased.

Itís been the same for me this season and I was within the first 4000 to buy- still couldnít get £98 tickets.

I'd imagine they've done their sums. They only have 4/5 days to shift all the tickets, so can't have too many categories. I suspect most people who have, say, 10+ homes will already be season ticket holders. So not worth devoting a whole window to the few who are not.

Yup it's a strange decision but does favour the non glory hunter type who've hit 2 or 3 in a decent run of games toward the end of the season & got a semi ticket, I guess that was the logic.

So yesterday morning I went on the official site to find out when the  tickets were on sale - nothing; so assumed it would be announced after the Derby Leeds game. Watched that, logged on to this site to find out the sale had begun at 5pm. Nothing available at that time (around 11pm) in Cats 1 and 2; went to Cat 3 and found ONE seat all on its own in a sea of sold tickets in cat 3 (Block 528), which is good as it seems to be near the half way line. The whole of the rest of the block was sold out except one. i can't really see how the ticketing system works at all but I got a better ticket than last year with a good view - Row 22 so not too high.

It lets me select seats but when I hit basket it greys them out and says this event is not currently available for sale. (Not that you donít meet criteria) was just having a practice run but would have expected the problems when I try to assign them to family and friends on the next page

The select ticket page is showing less than 5k seats left, which is a bit odd if the allocation is 36k?

4,538 tickets left so we've sold over 31,000 already to season ticket holders?
I've no chance then and I've been to 18 home games too with my son.
I think you'll be ok.  But yes, would be better if they added a 10 game category.  I'm also not sure why cup & play off games don't count to be honest.

Play off home games counted last year have they changed it ?

There was a tweet from the club posted on here suggesting that, but then comments below the tweet from people saying that they had been told otherwise by people when they contacted the club.  I haven't seen anything on the club's site saying that cup games or play offs don't count.   

The criteria (except last window), are "home league games", i.e not cup games.

It's pretty clear on Twitter from AVFC Support's Tweet that play off semi home leg will not count for the 3 or 5 game home league game criteria but WILL count as booking history for the final sales window.
The eligibility criteria on the official site now states that for the +5 & +3 windows after Subject to Availability "(This will include PL semi)".

I thought I'd seen the same about it incuding the semi final.

When I tried to find it again there is a link from the online FAQ which says it takes you to the criteria; however it takes you to last years' criteria which does state it includes the PL semi finals.

Can't see anything about it including the semi final for this year now I'm looking again.

Make of Twitter what you will, but someone claims the ticket office told them that just under 20k have been sold so far and that each eligibility criteria has its own allocation of tickets.

https://twitter.com/AVFC_Kitch/status/1129033282274906120
No more blocks became available at 5pm

Looks like block 533 and 238 (middle tier) have just been released.

Well that's a tad annoying. I wanted seats in the middle tier/blocks 232-239 but when I went on earlier to buy my tickets it said all those blocks were sold out. Happy enough with what I got but would have preferred middle tier. If they'd said block not yet released rather than sold out I'd have held fire.

I say the same every time we get there.
Sometimes itís better to risk waiting till after the initial rush to get tickets when the rest of the good blocks become available.
Of course, as usual, I panicked and bought any old shit*  last night after I eventually got on after waiting over an hour.

*Any old shit isnt actually true, but 3 of us are in the upper tier when weíd hoped to be in the middle, but of course there were none available last night.

I got on at about 5.30 last night and the only middle blocks on sale were 235,236,237 & all had single seats only.  I was then lucky and managed to get 3 together in 235 after somebody released them.  I've looked within the last hour and odd seats are popping up in 238 which suggests that it has been on sale this evening and people are releasing seats after deciding to sit somewhere else.

Disappointed with the Villa ticket office if they stated earlier that no more blocks were available.

I've entered the ballot for Club Wembley (vomit).

I haven't read the last few pages so apologies if this has already been mentioned. Does anyone know whether it's a genuine ballot? As somebody who works in sales, it looks to me like it's a pretty clever way to ensure that people are fretting so much about not getting tickets that they'll be so grateful to have been 'picked' that they'll happily hand over their credit card details before they've had a chance to think, 'hang on, is this a sensible use of £800?'.

I entered the ballot after 5pm this evening and I was told I'll get a call from one of their sales team tomorrow, which seems like a quick turn around for a ballot!

I agree with the comments of supporters who have been more to more than the 5 games, if I had been to 10+ games I would expect to get more chance of getting a ticket than someone who had been to just 5 games. - Best of luck to everyone who is after a ticket this weekend - hopefully by Monday all will be sorted and you will have your tickets.

Iím a long standing ST holder but had to wait an extra day until my kid became eligible through the Villa Cub scheme, bit surprised that at 3 oíclock there were plenty of seats together in the family section and at 5.05 when I go to the head of the queue, there were none available at all together. Which appears daft as the criteria was that any adult had to be accompanying a child, who wouldnít be able to sit with them.

Other than that it was painless and quick, despite me having to buy in the upper tier which I didnít want.

If you donít know your log in details Iíd request a reminder now, I asked via the website yesterday and still havent had a password reset link come through. I did it via my customer  ref number in the end.

Agreed, my thinking (hope) is that the club is probably fairly confident that anyone who has been to 5+ games that wants a ticket will get one and that's why the initial post ST criteria has been set at that.

This is a daft system which needs sorted out - you shouldnít be prevented from linking people Ďbecause they are linked to other groupsí.

People naturally belong to several different friend and family groups, and trying to untangle that could link you to strangers who you wouldnít necessarily trust with access to your reference.

I guess that if you belong to several different groups there is a risk that one of your mates will get you a ticket on an occasion when you wanted to go with your family, or a different group of mates, but generally, people communicate and know who is getting tickets for who on the day. More problems arise because you are supposed to be getting tickets for someone but canít because they belong to a different group.

Maybe one for the SCG.

From about 15 mins before you get held in the pre-queue queue , but then get assigned a random place in the queue at 5 . So itís worth being online before 5 but not massively before

Also worth having two different browsers open as each one will get assigned a random place , similarly your phone / I pad , though my experience was that doing the interactive map thing on the phone is hard so you pays your money etc .....

The way I see it and doing some maths. Allowing for ST & Claret members - I would say 26500 which would leave 10000 tickets.

Based on our average attendance of 35000, I would say all 5+ games would be okay for a ticket with 3 games going very quickly.

Seems a bit strange that they've put the family section in the lower tier right behind the goal. This has been where everyone has stood up and the majority of the atmosphere has come from on our previous visits. The gradient of that area means that if people are stood up the kids won't be able to see, it would have been far better suited in the upper tier. Or better still, don't have a family section and just let everyone choose where they want to sit. Almost as bad as Derby having designated singing blocks.

Thatís how I lost out on a lower tier ticket - because those were the exact sections I was trying on my phone because weíve always been in those sections before. Because it was fiddly on my little phone screen, I couldnít negotiate what was going wrong in time to find anything else in the lower tier! Never mind - will just have to try and raise the roof from just underneath it instead!

I think a lot of people with kids (especially those with season tickets) would just go wherever they fancy anyway. Loads of people have small children with season tickets in The Holte End x they wonít be looking for a specific section. After Wednesday there was a massive highly desirable section of tickets in the lower tier going begging whilst season ticket holders were being sent into the roof! Still - this is a Wembley policy it appears so nothing Villa could do about it.

Apparently they have filled up pretty quickly as soon as Villa Cubs became eligible alongside the claret members. Between 5pm & 5.05 it went from extensive availability to hardly any.

At first I had a bit of a Ďnot fairí moment when I thought people with kids will get better seats with less output, but then I thought there is no harm in doing something to look after the next generation of supporters.

The kids in that section will hopefully not be stuck in the middle of stand up/ sit down arguments and will have a great day out.

Fair point about the kids amfy as long as they sell out for what they are intended for.

Iíve always had top tier tickets in all my visits to Wembley and never had any complaints about the view of the pitch...but Iím used to watching from the back of the Holte so appreciate others may prefer to be closer to the pitch.

Iím a long standing ST holder but had to wait an extra day until my kid became eligible through the Villa Cub scheme, bit surprised that at 3 oíclock there were plenty of seats together in the family section and at 5.05 when I go to the head of the queue, there were none available at all together. Which appears daft as the criteria was that any adult had to be accompanying a child, who wouldnít be able to sit with them.

Other than that it was painless and quick, despite me having to buy in the upper tier which I didnít want.

If you donít know your log in details Iíd request a reminder now, I asked via the website yesterday and still havent had a password reset link come through. I did it via my customer  ref number in the end.

How did it work through your ref number instead of log in details?

I am interested as I have saved my details on my work laptop and it automatically gets me in when I use it. But if I try on my phone or ipad I fail. I have requested a new password reset a couple of times this season (caused me a big panic before last May at Wembley) and the link has never arrived. Basically I am relying on my work laptop.

Cheers for your help Jason.

Hello mate, hope you and yours are well.

I still havenít had my Ďforgot passwordí link through after 2 days, I have however had my notification of booking through to that same email address which makes me think that they have me down as my customer ref number but my email addy is another section of my profile and so itís not syncing.

I think I went into the normal www.avfc.co.uk site using my customer ref as my email addy\username and then navigated through to the ticket sales section.

Hope that makes some sense?

Iíll be happy watching at home though, the best things about this season is the fact my two girls have got into watching the Villa. Weíre planning on running a couple of video calls from our living room to my Mom and also the in-laws which should be fun.

The club will have allocated tickets to both of those criteria.  Everyone who wanted to go last year got one. That was based on 3+ and booking history only. This year, because of a smaller allocation and a higher average attendance, theyíve increased the criteria but essentially if youíve been to VP 3 or more times this season youíre nailed on for a ticket.

Theyíll be some left at booking history but thatíll be very much first come first served I suspect. Perhaps under 1000 tickets

Slightly confused but I guess you revised your opinion.

The marked difference is last year 3+ were *not* subject availability so in the clubs description were guaranteed. People here tend to say they have a very clear idea of exact maximum of how many that could fit the categories.

This year *even 5+* are subject to availability.

Deciding factors will presumably be the levels that donít take up, ultimately unless anyone can get a clearer idea from the Tkt office weíll wait and see.

I was 3000th in the queue...got my 2 tickets sorted easily enough in block 531 (upper tier). Sat there previously and it's a great view of the pitch, stadium and mass of Villa fans so no complaints. Tickets were selling very fast and had to reselect seats a couple of times, and there weren't that many tickets available in total with most blocks sold out, so unless they are releasing more then I would estimate approx 2000 remaining from the blocks that I could pick from. Also noticed there were literally about 20 tickets available in the whole of the lower and middle tiers in total...didn't check them all but the blocks I did were all single seats.

Unless they are holding tickets back and releasing more as they go then I would be inclined to agree with you. Most upper tier blocks only have the back rows available, and there was only a few blocks with 300+ tickets remaining. To be fair, there aren't really any bad seats in Wembley and it just depends on each persons definition of a "good seat"...I prefer to be higher up than lower down as I prefer to see formations, shape, passing and movement.

Good luck to everyone still trying to get tickets...hope we all get there and have an amazing day!  :)

A number of the blocks that are marked as "Sold Out" have not been on sale yet. So I assume they will be released later.

I was amazed when I went online  at 5pm that there only appeared to be about 2000 tickets left - quick calculation by block in my head. I thought there would be several thousand more.


More like 5000

A number of the blocks that are marked as "Sold Out" have not been on sale yet. So I assume they will be released later.

It isnít a prediction. Itís common sense, Iíve read some right garbage about tickets.

The whole point of doing it by criteria is so the the Villa ensure fans that have been to at least 3 games get tickets.  Theyíll be plenty left for Monday and a handful left Tuesday. Look, if Iím wrong, Iíll come on to the thread and hold my hand up. I suspect Iím not.

Why is it common sense or garbage?  Given we've increased attendances by 4k on average and decreased the allocation by 2k, that it will get beyond 5+ and 3+, when demand has increased and supply decreased?

Surely it's common sense to assume the average 4k increase in support has been to a minimum of 3+, given the number of sell outs we've had. That as a result there will be a lot more that meet the 5+ threshold and 3+ threshold this year compared to last and fewer seats to meet that demand.

For what itís worth, I hope youíre right The_ads. Myself and others can only provide information that everyone else also has regarding ticket availability.

It is a crappy way to sell tickets, no doubt about it.
When I tried to buy our 3 tickets at 6:45 pm on Wednesday (after waiting in the q for over an hour) there were NO middle tier tickets available in the side sections, other than 100ís in the family sections that we did not qualify for.
We ended buying in block 528.

Yesterday, during the cup final, I randomly logged on to the website after 5pm. Got straight onto the site and bugger me, the whole of blocks 228,229 were available.

In my opinion, it looks like they deliberately hold back these Ďpremiumí seats for later and so in reality, the earlier in the windows you qualify to buy your ticket, the shitter the choice.

I am sure I pointed this out previously to my mates, but there is no way we were going to gamble by leaving buying our tickets until days after they have gone on sale when we can buy them when they first go on sale.

With regard to the middle tier though - I think there are a lot of corporate seats in that tier & they take a few days to see how these are selling & then offer a number to us plebs accordingly. As a result of this, the atmosphere may not be as good there as in the top tier, where so many of our core support have ended up. I noticed yesterday when Man City won the FA Cup, the middle tier was nearly empty when they were celebrating whilst the bottom and top were still full.

The thing is am, the ticket office blatantly lied to you when they said other blocks would not become available - The exact same thing happened last year.  It is an absolutely appalling way to distribute tickets.

I would have ideally liked level 2 £98 tickets, however, none have been available (to my knowledge) until yesterday.  So someone like me (season ticket holder & 12 aways) gets a worse choice than someone with 5 games.  Even worse for Ads who has been to every game home and away but could only purchase level 3.  Appalling.

Maybe itís more difficult to sift through the tickets to post them in the order they are sold. If the order they are sold is restricted to certain ares, then picking and posting those tickets is much easier.

I was on the site by 5.10 yesterday and the only choice was there, the family bit in the lower or a fair few in the upper. I had to assume therefore that the rest of the lower was completely sold out with no blocks available then or at a later stage.

The lower sold out (apart from the family bit) within about the first hour of selling to season ticket holders! Many hung on in the belief that some blocks were being held back (including me) but they have not re-appeared & the ticket office advised me on Wednesday that they were sold. Sold to the first season ticket holders who got through cannot be argued with.

The problem has been a lack of clear communication which has led to people (again including me) thinking they are missing out or being sold short when they arenít. The phrase Ďunavailableí rather than Ďsold outí leaves you wondering - especially as pre-sale info talks about tickets being released in blocks. It could be so much clearer.

Releasing in blocks doesnít make sense as almost everyone will simply want to get a seat that is like where they choose to be at Villa Park. Shame for me the Wembley L7 is the family section! I also think that unless you are choosing seats at the aisle, they should push sales together to minimise individual seats. Unless you choose an aisle seat there is no reason to leave gaps in a row. I am pretty sure technology can do this and send an appropriate message to advise what is being done. (E.g. ĎYou requested seats 154-156 and we are offering 152-154 in order to minimise individual seats left vacant & maximise the number of supporters who are able to sit in their desired groups.í)

I got through the queue and was selecting my seats by 5:20pm yesterday and there were only a handful of seats remaining in those 2 blocks so they must have sold very fast. I could have bought there but to be honest, I also couldnít justify paying double the price for a seat that was only just a few rows closer to the pitch.

With regards to releasing blocks, I can understand it from a managing ticket sales perspective to maximise seat sold in each block. Itís a simple administrative control that helps the ticket seller but its crap from a supporters perspective buying the tickets (itís nothing to do with printing as that would be automated individually).

The £98 is only if someone (/you know) owns a club Wembley seat, that they can take up the ticket. Iíve used a contact before to get some for folks but not possible any more.

Those that entered the ballot if you didnít have that option, *if* they are selected (someone on here was, no idea if true ballot if demand exceeded supply but presume so)  paid £379 which inc the £98 seat and unlimited food and booze.

They are generic tickets with event, date and seat number printed on them. They are not specific to any club or person.
They could have been been printed months ago and stored in block order. Then itís really easy to distribute all the tickets in each block as they are sold, because limited blocks  are all sold at the same time.

Derby go on general sale today 2pm (2 tickets per fan id with booking history, not necessarily this season).
They only started selling Friday and one of their categories was to new season ticket holders for 2019/2020.
They only had 2 windows Friday 10am and 2pm today.
Villa fans work hard to get their tickets, fans of other clubs don't but then we do have a large fanbase.
Good luck to all Villa fans with getting tickets. UTV!

Blocks 228 and 229 are the middle tier (usually Club Wembley but available to normal supporters for the Playoff Finals) on the halfway line. These are the absolute best seats in the Stadium. 

Back in the 90s, at the old Wembley, these were the kind of seats that were available to season ticket holders straight away, but that would be too sensible.

I think that the top price of £98 for them might be an indication that they are indeed the best seats - Or at least the best seats available in the 36,000 allocation that we received.

Just looking at the link you posted, and that's pretty much where I'd choose to sit in the Holte, but with the size of Wembley, I doubt I could tell the difference between Tammy and SJM at the other end of the pitch!

This is a genuine canvassing of opinion. I genuinely can't decide if what I'm thinking is out of order or an opportunity to do good.

I have an unexpected spare. My family and I have had season tickets for more years than I can remember,( and two out of three of us have done 15 aways this year). This year my son has been at Uni this year though we kept his season ticket up and he has attended when he can. However he initially asked me to get his ticket for Wembley before finding out he is unable to attend due to exams (yes, I would have still gone aswell  but he is WAY more conscientious than me. )

I want to sell the ticket to a genuine Villa fan who for whatever reason doesn't meet the sales criteria. It isn't the best ticket, it's in upper tier , cost £40 including booking fee etc . It isn't in hand yet but expected soon.

Question is this: there is a charity close to my heart that I would like to support. My idea is to release the ticket on evidence of a double the cost  donation to that charity ie £80 , with the buyer also being someone from here with proper Villa credentials. I would receive no payment for the ticket at all.

If the consensus is this is out of order then it gets sold face value and I'll give the money to the same charity, but clearly they only get half as much that way. Would welcome opinions and genuinely not sure what is right. Essentially what i'm asking is for the buyer pay for the ticket and also to give a donation to charity equivalent to the cost price of the ticket , and I will match that donation by not taking any money for the ticket I purchased in the first place.

I've just seen one lad on Twitter auctioning a ticket for Acorns.  You could do the same for a charity of your choice?  Say minimum bid of £80, and set the time limit of say Weds, to get time to receive the ticket and then have time to post it on?

This is a genuine canvassing of opinion. I genuinely can't decide if what I'm thinking is out of order or an opportunity to do good.

I have an unexpected spare. My family and I have had season tickets for more years than I can remember,( and two out of three of us have done 15 aways this year). This year my son has been at Uni this year though we kept his season ticket up and he has attended when he can. However he initially asked me to get his ticket for Wembley before finding out he is unable to attend due to exams (yes, I would have still gone aswell  but he is WAY more conscientious than me. )

I want to sell the ticket to a genuine Villa fan who for whatever reason doesn't meet the sales criteria. It isn't the best ticket, it's in upper tier , cost £40 including booking fee etc . It isn't in hand yet but expected soon.

Question is this: there is a charity close to my heart that I would like to support. My idea is to release the ticket on evidence of a double the cost  donation to that charity ie £80 , with the buyer also being someone from here with proper Villa credentials. I would receive no payment for the ticket at all.

If the consensus is this is out of order then it gets sold face value and I'll give the money to the same charity, but clearly they only get half as much that way. Would welcome opinions and genuinely not sure what is right. Essentially what i'm asking is for the buyer pay for the ticket and also to give a donation to charity equivalent to the cost price of the ticket , and I will match that donation by not taking any money for the ticket I purchased in the first place.
I will pay £100 for ticket, you can donate the rest to charity.




Chicago : The whole £100 would  go to the charity. Ticket not in hand yet. When it is I will PM you. The charity close to my heart is a particular military benevolent fund. Assuming you have no issues with that the ticket is yours when I've got it. I don't want an auction so no further offers considered unless Chicago's doesn't come through. Are you happy with that Chicago? If anyone else thinks this is wrong way forward then please say so here and I will reconsider.
I wouldn't have bought ticket unless I thought my son could go. Now I have I want the best possible outcome.

I remember sitting in the Derby end at the Baseball ground a few decades ago - with Alex Alex Cropley form here - we jumped up when Daley scored and a couple of Derby fans came and shook our hands. Bizarre behaviour. The rest of them we moaning about the referee being a cheat.....

Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: Lastfootstamper on May 20, 2019, 11:40:55 AM
I reckon that the criteria were set as they were because the club know how many people fall into each category, and they're releasing available seating in accordance.
There probably aren't many who've been to five but not been to say nine or ten, for example, so that'd count as one group.
The final eligible group, who've done just 3 or 4 games, there's a good chance they've not been til the death and it seemed almost certain we'd make the play-offs.
Yes, I couldn't get the exact seats I wanted, but I'm not a million miles away. We're sat together, and we've all got a ticket. It'll do me.

As it stands, nobody that has followed the Villa regularly this season on their own reference will miss out on Wembley, and that's the most important thing. I'd rather that than some mad free-for-all where people who should be there miss out.

They held back 2 blocks of the middle tier until Saturday, and I'm pretty sure a number of blocks in the upper tier have not yet been available. But getting worried.

This is correct - just stay on the 'this event will begin' page and it'll automatically place you when the timer finishes.

I got in and managed to get 2 in the basket but it wouldn't let me assign one to my son for some reason, but no time to try and find out why, so I ended up just buying one.  As quickly as I could click on seats they were coming up unavailable so just bought the one.  Not sure what to do now, I think I'd rather watch it with him in the pub than either of us go alone, so I'll have to keep looking this week on secondary markets etc. and then decide what to do.  Happy I got one, but sad it's only one if you know what I mean.

Plenty of seats available, I was in within 4 minutes of the 5 o'clock start, Block 128 had over 100 seats available for example, earlier today this block was SOLD OUT.

Don't panic just yet.

The club need feedback about how much of a piss take it is for seats that close to the pitch becoming available when they weren't available to ST holders if they were late in the queue. Their approach of holding back tickets is ridiculous.

Also appreciating there are a many who were entitled today who missed out, I had I think 7 or 8 browsers/devices and so places in the queue and so still missed out before it sold out, yes lower entitlement and higher attendances have bitten.

If we win, do I push for the child to be's middle name to be Victoria?  (i.e. Victory, Verity would also work as my name means truth, but sounds a bit posh. Planned first name begins with A) ;)

Yep and when you consider how many crowds we've had north of 36,000, it seemed clear that the 3+ group would have been significantly higher than recent years and no way could 36,000 meet demand.

The site sells around 100 tickets per minute, so there was less than 2k left.

I got a ticket (through the company a friend used to work for) in Club Wembley Gold seats for the Liverpool semi final.

It was basically middle level, bang on the halfway line.

You pay whatever (insane) amount for a year subscription (no idea what the minimum year commitment is) and you get your seat for every event at Wembley. I was sat next to a couple who had bought them on a whim a few years ago purely because they liked going to important sporting events, and the FA Cup semi finals were part of the package.

It was a great seat, great location and what not, but the amounts of money involved will doubtless be insane.

Somehow, when I couldnít get 3 together and it became clear they were disappearing I started scraping round the blocks to get any. Then randomly, they released a chunk of premium pitchside ones and got 3 in a row. Seems strange how Iíve ended up with better seats than most in pure luck at the very last minute but wonít complain as we did get screwed over by the exclusion of the play off game as a qualifying match this year. Anyway,Off to Wembley. We do also have a spare return virgin train ticket from Lichfield TV - 9am out and 8pm back if anyoneís interested? Face Value of course.

I got a ticket (through the company a friend used to work for) in Club Wembley Gold seats for the Liverpool semi final.

It was basically middle level, bang on the halfway line.

You pay whatever (insane) amount for a year subscription (no idea what the minimum year commitment is) and you get your seat for every event at Wembley. I was sat next to a couple who had bought them on a whim a few years ago purely because they liked going to important sporting events, and the FA Cup semi finals were part of the package.

It was a great seat, great location and what not, but the amounts of money involved will doubtless be insane.

I think it's about £3K a year to join Club Wembley, on a minimum three year contract.  All that does is give you the right to buy tickets for events.

Me and a friend had to go into the ballot for Club Wembley to get tickets and I can confirm the amounts are frightening. Think it's about £400. Still cheaper than £3k to join Club Wembley though. We'd better win!

My work used to have 6 Club Wembley, had them for the Cup Final right on the HW line opposite the Royal Box, great seats.  I had to donate £100 each to charity for them (2 for me and my lad).  Unfortunately they stopped at the end of last season as "we weren't getting the best use out of them"  A real mix of fans around though, mostly Gooners that day it has to be said.

Looking at the ticket map, assuming what is showing on our side as sold out is sold out with all the tickets in those blocks having been bought (and the same for Derby) I can only assume any extra tickets will be the unsold Club Wembley seats greyed out in each area, because otherwise there doesn't look like any obvious blocks where extras can be on our side maintaining segregation

Because the CW seats at the Villa end have all been sold, that's why, one assumes to Villa fans.

For Club Wembley tickets you could register your interest as a fan of one of the clubs in the play-offs before the finalists were known - although not strictly part of our allocation, Wembley themselves managed the sales to fans who had registered their interest as a Villa or Derby (or indeed Leeds or WBA) fan and so presumably can maintain segregation.

I'm guessing that we had thousands of fans who were willing to take the risk before knowing we were in the final (and who have got the money to spare) for Wembley to allocate all of these seats at the full Club Wembley price to Villa fans who pre-registered.  Derby probably didn't have the same, and these tickets are now going to the club to be sold at CAT A prices to prevent there being 2000 empty seats when demand clearly outstrips supply.

The thing I would be annoyed about is being a Villa fan who paid the full Club Wembley price knowing there are Derby fans in equivalent seats who have probably paid a lot less for them.  It's a supply and demand thing I guess, but I don't want to start getting into the rights and wrongs of that particular argument!

Yes and who is sitting in the completely sold out West side Club Wembley? It will be Villa and as East side Club Wembley were cheaper, there will be loads of Villa in there too.

(Itís segregated at this game, so colours are allowed). I was told ours sold out in a little over a day, but I could buy in the Derby section, as long as I was a Derby fan. I declined at £389 each, but would have bought at £98 each, which wasnít on offer yesterday. The £98 tickets donít count the unlimited food and drink, obviously.

Pair of tickets together Block 139 Club Wembley in the Villa end £570 each + Service fee & tax of £210 + postage grand total £1570.

Utterly ridiculous.

https://www.1st4footballtickets.com/events/championship-play-off-final-tickets-football-league-championship-play-off.html

Sickening.

They're not even in Club Wembley - they are just lower tier tickets!!

You're right, so these are possibly being sold by a Villa fan or ST holder.

Guy on Twitter asking me for 330. Hospitality tickets are only 50 quid more than that with free booze and 3 course meal.

The reason both clubs got 2,000 fewer tickets this year is because the tickets in the Club Wembley middle tier (which each clubs fans have equal access to, at their own end via the Club Wembley site) were snapped up so quickly last year, particularly at the Villa end.

The EFL (and Wembley) have therefore tried to profit by saving another 4,000 this year to sell as hospitality with meal and drinks for £389. They were oversubscribed at the Villa end again, but had 2,000 left within the Derby end. So these went on sale (seat only, no meal) to Derby fans today at the price of Cat 1 & Cat 2 tickets depending on whether they were on the side or behind the goal (same as other middle tier tickets both clubs sold).
So next time (!) the plan should be to boycott buying Club Wembley tickets until theyíre passed onto the club to sell without the meal!

A friend managed to get two for (Villa fans) in middle tier behind goal for £78 each, via a client ID number a Burton fan got for buying tickets at Pride Park two years ago. It was two per ID number.

What really illustrates the obscene profiteering by the league is the fact that it was £120 dearer for a Club Wembley ticket (hospitality) for Mondayís play-off than it is for Sundayís, whereas the difference in price of Cat 1 tickets for each game is only £15. That is just not right.

The price of normal admission tickets to the final is a kick in the teeth to fans anyway, after a 46 game campaign. At the very least season ticket holders of the two clubs should get a reduction. The fans who spend their season paying for the privilege of being extras in what is now just a TV show should be rewarded, not ripped off.

If anyone with a 3+ game booking history is looking for a ticket, you might want to keep an eye on the website this afternoon. Over the last half an hour or so, about 5 single tickets have appeared very briefly. I assume they are returns. The downside is you have to be very, very quick as there are clearly a few people watching & waiting in hope of a ticket.

Iíve actually had this a few times over the past couple of days, but you seem to have about 5-10 seconds from it appearing to someone adding it to their basket, so often itís gone before you can even get in there. You also have to keep refreshing the site until it shows ĎBUYí instead of ĎSOLD OUTí on the ticket page then go as fast as you can.

Not sure itís any good for the nerves in advance of Monday, but thought it might be of interest for anyone with a bit of time, patience & luck!

When I couldn't buy the one I had it took me back to the ticket info screen which does now say anymore made available will go back on sale to supporters with a 3+ history and the 'sold out' button at the bottom had changed to 'coming soon' which I guessed means I could have bought it had I had the 3+ history.

Judging by what Iíve seen elsewhere PT there are a lot of people aware of it now and saving tickets in their basket for the 20-mins or so they get in the hope of getting a reference. Personally not sure if it works unless the Ďfriendí ID is already linked before you add the ticket to the basket, but I would assume any late spares are even harder to get for that reason

Mine arrived this morning - Club Wembley Villa. Bought as back up a couple of weeks ago when prices were not too bad in case I missed out on the 3+ criteria. Missed out on Monday so glad I bagged this one early! See you at Wembley guys!!  :)

The tickets would be cheaper if they weren't the size of a bed sheet.

They're too big to fit in your wallet.

Hi guys,

I could do with a bit of help/advice. Iíve only just realised that I stupidly bought a concession ticket during the mad rush of getting a ticket.
Does anyone know how strict they are at Wembley regarding this? Iíve read that they cannot be upgraded or downgraded under any circumstance.
What would you guys do? Risk it?

Thereís usually some stewards waiting the other side of the turnstiles who check bags, do body searches etc. Whether they take any notice of what colour light flashes when you pop your ticket in the reader, Iím not sure but would think itís worth risking it.

I know when we played Liverpool in the Semi final their lot were bunking in through the turnstiles two at a time so I doubt youíll have any issue.

I really hope we don't get into a situation where familiarity with London slang terms becomes a requirement to get in.

What if the steward asks for a gorilla and I offer him a pygmy marmoset by mistake? I could end up getting my Super (Super Ted = Head) ice creamed (ice cream licked = kicked) in. It's a potential Henri Lansbury's hair (nightmare).

I went to watch Orient play last weekend and the turnstiles are fully automated with the stewards on the other side focused on directing people and doing pat downs.

Just read this on Popbitch weekly email. Any truth it it?

The Championship play-off final is often touted as the richest game in football, worth an estimated £170m to the winning team.

Ahead of their victory this year, Aston Villa offered one of their best loved legends, European Cup winner Gordon Cowans, a ticket to Wembley to watch the match - as a thank you for all his efforts for the club back in the day.

And all they asked for in return...? £70.

Cowans ended up watching it in the Horse & Jockey in Lichfield instead.

I'm sure there were loads of tickets from Villa's allocation that were sold outside of the 'paying fanbase' (ex players, players families, employees families, etc). it;s the only feasible explanation for how so many people who qualified for a ticket for the semi-final home-leg, couldn't then get one for the final.

I think the shocking part is that Sid was asked to pay for his ticket.
Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: chrisw1 on June 20, 2019, 04:16:43 PM
Of course a legend like Sid who has given so much to the club shouldn't have to pay.  But should the club draw a line somewhere or should all ex-players get a free ticket to every game?
Title: Re: Wembley Tickets
Post by: maidstonevillain on June 20, 2019, 04:24:27 PM
Probably nearer to the truth is that he was on a mailing list of all ex-players and was simply sent a letter/email giving him first refusal to purchase a ticket.

A horrible reality was a row of about a dozen unused highest band seats right in front of us, not sure if they were club ones that werenít taken up, an AV steward was touring round at one point and pointed them out to a bigwig.

Thats a good point. Even so if i had seen a ticketless Sid before the game i'd have been honoured to give him mine.

Iíve mentioned this before but I was sat/stood next to Sid in the Semi Final against Bolton at the Old Wembley in the cheapest seats behind the goal

I thought then if he had asked the club they would probably have sorted him out but I could be wrong as I donít know how these things work

I have some photos of the day my own lad was only 12 at the time Sids lad in the photo is presumably the one playing football now
