People have still got until the end of next week to renew. The first people on the waiting list will qualify for any spares as soon as that deadline passes.

It will be interesting to see how much demand there is next season once the reality of PL football has kicked back in.  Anything lower than a top half finish and I suspect it will fall back a little and those on the waiting list will get a ticket if they still want one.

OR we could be absolutely flying next season playing free flowing attacking football and they'll have to announce plans to extend the stadium.

I wasnít going to renew, but now it seems to be the worst possible moment to give up a season ticket, so I might.

My thoughts having moved away were that Iíd see how many games I went to from up here and whether it became a chore. If I ended up happily going to enough games to justify a season ticket I would  get one again next season.

The other factor was that during all of our Wembley trips of recent years you havenít needed a season ticket to get there.

Everything has changed!

I now think that Iím more likely to keep the ST for now & see how support from up here works, & only give my ST up if I feel like itís not working out.

The good thing is that these sales have created enough demand for me to shift my season ticket seat on the games I canít/ donít want to go.

Yes that hopefully will happen or once we get used to mid table mediocrity  normal conditioning  means a fall back.

I was going to leave it for a few more days but tried again earlier and decided to go Upper Trinity. Thank god for that.

30,000 though, unprecedented. It’s funny to think back when I  first started going down in 90/91 we averaged just over 20k. 🤷🏼‍♂️
We only averaged 33k in 80/81 when we were League Champions

That 33k was the 4th highest. Liverpool averaged 32k when winning the league a couple of years later. The drop in attendances that lead to the nadir of 1986 had already started by 80/81.

80-81 was right in the middle of Thatchers mass unemployment experiment. Crowds were low everywhere

I've just received an email regarding registering interest and putting yourself on a waiting list. Got a feeling they've probably sold 26k - 27k and the waiting list is the guaranteed way of making sure they sell 30k. They certainly say nowhere they've sold 30k or they're sold out.

Certainly I hope that's the case!

I received that mail too. It says there are 3894 seats available, whatever that means

Does anyone know if you have a under age season ticket if you can upgrade it to an adult one for one off games ?

Anyone know what tends to happen on relocation day?

My sons a ST holder in the Lower North, in R1, with a friend who hardly went in the end last season due to some issues he's got.His other friend (M),  is in the Holte.

M and my son are both off to Notts Uni and they want to renew to sit together in Lower North as money's tight.Obviously, we realize that M is going to have to renew his Holte ticket firstly, but to compound it, his friend I suspect will now renew knowing that he'd struggle to get another ST at a later point...but my son doesn't want to sit together without M as these issues could arise next year, and he found it hard to sit on his own every game.

My son would love them all 3 of them to have a ST together in the Lower North, do we think it's feasible or likely, come relocation day?If so, any ideas as to the best way to achieve it on relocation day....

Managed to get mine yesterday as a first time season ticket holder.

Already feeling the pressure to keep it for years to come knowing now thereís going to be a big waiting list!
I thought it was only last years ST holders that could purchase at the moment until relocation day ?
