This made me smile.

Birmingham City - I want a refund on my season ticket for sacking Gary Monk.

West Olbiyun - We canít pay our debts, we are in the shit.

Aston Villa - Weíve had to stop people buying season tickets, sorry everyone.

Karma.

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

Yes you can- I have done this several times in the last couple of seasons whilst my son has been at Uni. Only downside is that you cannot do it online but a telephone call to the ticket office will get it sorted with a e-ticket for an adult being sent to your email address. For me the uplift is normally around the £20-£25 mark.

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....


Get to the ticket office early. The earlier the better, because unless you're prepared to camp from Friday night, there will be a queue in front of you. It's not chaotic, but being 50 yards back means you won't stop panicking that every one in front of you is after your ideal seats. And if the people you want to move aren't present with you, make sure they've either sent an email to the club or given you something in writing that grants you permission to relocate their seat on their behalf.

that's great thanks for that

i thought i'd read you could but didn't know the procedure

only problem being that my calls get cut off after anything up to 10-15 minutes so i cant actually talk to anyone there

Does anyone have a seating plan (with rows/seats obvs) that I can look at?  I'm looking for Upper Trinity, so gives me an idea of how the plan looks before I attempt the madness that is relocation day.  Of course I know that STs are yet to confirm/renew, but I could do with an idea.

We're applying to the BCC to knock down the ticket office. Intention is for new offices/hotel/museum, subject to a further application, to replace existing structures.

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 ?

They were on General Sale on Monday then capped last night. I got in about half an hour after they went sale and there were obviously going like hot cakes.

Doesnít capping sales at 30k also virtually guarantee every ST holder a ticket for Wembley should we reach a cup final.

You only get 25k tickets in the FA Cup Final.

Why the waiting list then ? Is it to still give priority to last years ST holders until 29th without breaking 30k ?

I'd guess so. If all the outstanding ST holders renew in time, there'll be 30,000 by saturday week. For any that don't, it'll be one out, one in from the waiting list.
