I used my new claret membership for the first time last night to get Everton tickets - I saw the email at 5:35 pm so logged in.  The Holte was showing availability in the upper, but the areas were "locked" and still are this morning, so I don't know what that means, maybe only until the phone opens up?  Ideally I'd have got two in the Holte for me and my son.  Anyway, I haven't been to the first home game for years, so was happy to buy anyway, but appear to have inadvertently bought two in the 1888 section at £68.50 (eek).  My son is outraged at the price, and being 23 wants to be in the Holte, it's a lot I know, but we are limited to how many games we can get up for so I didn't mind. 
Anyone know what the 1888 seats are?  I'm also curious/annoyed about the Holte being locked out - anyone got any experience of that on the first release to members?
Thanks

Been checking the site quite regularly over the last couple of weeks for info about the Everton tickets, but there hasn't been anything on there.  Just happened to be checking my emails by chance yesterday and saw one saying that tickets for the Everton game were now on sale to members. 

Might be normal practice, but think giving same day notice isn't great, especially given the current demand and the price increase (lower North Stand now £40) means that you probably have to plan ahead.

When the new prices were announced, on sale dates for every game were further down in the article. Too late for Everton, but might help you plan your next trip.

There was a prior notification on the AVFC site of when tickets for all games became available and could be purchased by different "member" categories. But I agree that previously this information came up on the ticketing page well in advance of each game.

Edit. See Danno's message above.

I think my bottle has gone to my previous address then. Now I need to decide if I do anything about it.
As a matter of interest, had you updated your address online? My account still shows my old address on the front page, but when you go into edit it, it's showing my new address. Think i'll need to get onto them to investigate.

Cheers.  Got one yesterday, but wouldn't have had I not checked my email by chance.  I bought a ticket for the Lazio friendly a while back and kept checking the ticket page on the site for the Everton game.

I was the same. I was pretty relaxed about it because I was sure there’d be a decent notification but I only saw it last night after I sat down after work.

Thanks for the link Danni - that is in now!

Yeah same here - I found the on sale thing while looking to see what 1888 seats were this morning.  Presumably the Holte will be released as normal going forward once the Terrace view debacle is either sold out or they realise it never will.

I would get on to them because that was happening with me but they confirmed my membership address was different when I called.

In the update you have all been waiting for, I have received my water bottle and badge. Water bottle debut in the office today.

No pictures of gasping crowds?

I've been far more impressed with it than anyone else.

I don't think they've given much notification the last couple of years. It's pretty much always the Monday after the Saturday four weeks before the match for members.

No this is the claret member thread. No riff-raff here.

As number 16000 and something on the waiting list my lad has just been invited to buy a Terrace View season ticket... sales can't be going too well!

It's an absolute shambles. 

It's a daft idea, but the implementation is making it worse.  Why are they asking for £300 more than the cost of an actual season ticket with the Terrace View bolt on?  Why are they stating people will lose their place on the waiting list if they take it up?  Who would want to be locked into a double priced season ticket in perpetuity or go to the bottom of a 35k waiting list?  This must be taking loads of potential takers out the market.

If I was on the waiting list I'd never take this up even if I could afford it, as you're killing your chance of getting a season ticket proper for the foreseeable future.

This prompted me to check, and so has my 9 year old nephew! Of course he would love a season ticket, on his own, with access to an exclusive bar! What a shambles!

Would your 9yo mind babysitting my 2yo who’s had the invite too? I’ll be in the family zone with the 4yo
