Does this mean no guarantee for an away ticket to Bournemouth?

Ads and everyone, from experience apart from a local derby if you want a ticket for a game you will always by hook or crook obtain one.  But do take the point about not connecting to your purchase history which is annoying.

I think that for the away games season ticket holders who attended 18+ away games should get priority (and I mean attended) not passed on their reference number to all and sundry because they could not attend, they could check this by bank details etc... to see who paid for the tickets?

Then it should go to season ticket holders, otherwise all you are having is the same fans at every away game, and not giving other supporters the opportunity to attend.

With the new scheme the chances of a season ticket holder who attended a few away games last season getting an away ticket is highly unlikely (i have been a season ticket holder for 30 years, so why should my loyalty not be rewarded???, should I always get first chance at any remaining tickets ?), but I am off to Leipzeig.

Sorry but to have bought into a jump a queue scheme gives  no justification as  to why the majority on the scheme should have priority over me or many others who attended  almost all aways last season.

Looks like my away days are over too! I think I have 7 or 8 aways last season. I have had my season ticket for over 30 years and I have no more chance than someone who has just had their first season ticket.
I realise that it is impossible to please everyone but I have to say that I am a bit annoyed by it!
When the club says 18+ away games last season that doesn't mean they actually attended all the games or does it? Does that include people who passed the reference on to someone else in order to maintain thier booking history?
I guess most people, myself included, have begged a reference in the past but the trouble is that makes it impossible for anyone else to build up a booking history for themselves.

Anybody know for sure if the West Brom away playoff counts in booking history?
I've got  14 without that and 15 with , it says league games so not optimistic but seem to remember that the playoff games counted as booking history for Wembley tickets, could be wrong though

I'm pretty certain that I have seen that play off semis and final don't count but I can't find the reference.
