You'd have to pay me to watch Burnley every week.

Farcical
Those of us who kept our money in the Club should have been given Priority.I still have Vouchers that expire in September and have a 1/3 chance of being able to partially use them.

Had a read through the process and the procedures required if successful and it just seems so much hassle to watch a Meaningless Football match. It was less hassle booking and travelling on a flight last Summer to Finland.

£50 for zone 1 seating for those 'lucky' to be successful in the Ballot?

Don't give me this rubbish that they care about the fans , Purslow would have jumped at the chance to join the Super League if invited.



Mod hat off.

You are an utter idiot. Meaningless? No Villa fixture is meaningless. Purslow has integrity. What a clueless set of comments. How many more returns will there be after your usual flounces out?

Mod hat back on.

Do you have to give yourself a warning now? ☺

I've been duly reprimanded!

I was reading yesterday on the Birmingham Mail website that only 9,000 had applied for tickets, if it is true then anyone who has entered the ballot will get a ticket!

It took 3 hours for the ballot to become over subscribed.

No, 10,000 or whatever the allocation is applied within three hours. The ballot only closed on Sunday. That's what they meant.

What an incredible & wonderful gesture from Burnley. To thank their season ticket holders, they are allowing 3,500 of them to go to the match v Liverpool, for FREE, for those that are successful in their ballot. This is just the type of thing that I wish our club would have thought of doing. Instead, they have made our match v Chelsea a category A game so, some fans will have to pay £50. At last, at least Burnley are putting their fans best interest at heart instead of just paying lip service.

Our owners have invested £400m. Only Chelsea and Man City's owners have invested more of their own money.

Burnley's owners have bought the club via loans and loaded them onto the club, like the Glazers did.

I think its clear who has the best interests of the fans at heart.
Exactly.  I'd rather our owners save us from Administration and then invest hubdreds of millions making us a competitive team in the PL than give me a free ticket for a game I would have gladly been paying for anyway if it wasn't for the pandemic.

And although its cat A that doesn't mean all tickets will be £50.

Wouldnít be like them to post utter bollocks as click bait.

We didnít apply until Thursday because we were finalising our group. We were trying to invite the bloke who usually sits next to us on his own, via Facebook, but he doesnít use facebook very much so we gave it a few days.

We are meeting him for lunch though, whether we get tickets or not!

For us there was simply no rush, itís not like a cup final ticket where all the seats, or the best seats would have gone. As long as you were in the hat by Sunday you have the same chance as everyone else.

Yes. You need to upload one to their account. I had issues with my lads password for some reason, but Villa Support on Twitter were very helpful. Easy.
