Does anyone know how ticket sales are going?
Would still take a spare if anyone had one as I am not sure whether it will get to my criteria

Rough figures from the site, but around 700 left. I would imagine theres around 2100 sold with around 400 held back so far as restricted views. Would expect the lower tier to be taken.

I'd take the lower tier first myself and sell the restricted views last, but we'll see.

Cateforay change to 3 away games tomorrow at 5pm.

Edit: 2072 sold as of 15:00, so I was about right really.

The Brown Bear in Norfolk Street is a great, cheap, traditional pub with very friendly locals. Don't tell too many though as it's only small! Pint of Sam Smiths was only £2.20 last season, up from £2.10 the previous season! Tram stop pretty much at the end of the road.

The bankers draft is ok, a Wetherspoon pub, quite a few villa in there last year and it has a tram stop straight outside

Last 400 have sold out following the criteria change.

No confirmation yet on when we will get the 1400 down stairs. I would be surprised if we did not.

Sold out.

Only a handful were left at 5pm when they went on sale to ST holders and they went in minutes. Luckily I got the extra ones I needed.

Ticket office confirmed today that we’re not getting the extra allocation (downstairs) this season. No idea why.

The ticket office hasn't said that, they've said there's no confirmation on the lower tier. As it's now sold out upstairs, presumably there's a question to ask.

I asked the question on the phone to the TO this afternoon.

They've put out on Twitter they'll update when they hear further. They put the Twitter account on to avoid the misinformation about the phone calls, with different people saying different things.

They've said there's no further allocation for Rotherham, but no news on downstairs at Hillsborough, but they'll update should this change.

Surely we'll get the lower tier, can't see any reason why not?

Sheffield United recently got the lower tier in the derby so can't see why we wouldn't, if I remember right it was a day or two last year after the upper tier had sold out that the lower was then allocated to us

Wednesday have given opponents the same allocation as they get when they play away. The only team that was different was Sheffield United.

I doubt we'll get any more.

Leeds got 4600, maximum allocation is 2800 at Elland Road.
