Are Watford giving us the usual allocation or are away fans restricted because of Covid?

i would like to see a ballot for each away game so that season ticket holders can apply - it would then give other fans the chance to go to away matches

Most fans can never see their team play an away game unless it is a final at Wembley

No.

Sure as a season ticket holder you'll be able to get a ticket to Norwich away, mid-week in December. That way you get to build your history and go to an away that isn't Wembley. They'll be other fixtures like that too that reach general sale.

Mixture of regulars/ballots is the way to go. Now Bournemouth aren't in the league you can easily give the 2,000 or so fans who want to go to every game their away membership, while still leaving at least 1,000 free every game for those who aren't lucky enough to have the time/money to do that.

Is it bad to say that Iíve booked hospitality at Watford on the assumption that as a STH with a modest away record I couldnít see myself getting near a ticket - assuming this will be a) very popular and b) one of the smaller allocations.

I canít afford to go to 15 away games every season and with work I cannot take complete days off to attend away games

But I am a season ticket holder and it would be nice to be given the chance to get a ticket occasionally

Just a question if you have not renewed your season ticket but have the away history of attending 15 games 2 seasons ago will you still be able to buy away tickets? If the answer is yes I may be able to buy away tickets from a guy I used to work with

So you want the system changing to suit your convenience for the 4 games you might attend? Sounds reasonable.

Attending away games is a bit of a closed shop. One of the big problems is that regular attendees who qualify for a ticket still get tickets for games they can't attend.
They pass these tickets on (or let somebody use their reference). This is great for the buyer as he/she gets to attend a game but they have no chance of building up a history.
It does however maintain the booking history of the person who isn't going. Not saying I haven't used someone else's reference myself but its not really right.
You shouldn't really be allowed to buy a ticket if you are not going. More games would then reach the lower tiers of booking history.

Every club in the league should be required to give 20,000 away tickets to the team that invented the Football League.

Spot on. Iíve also taken advantage of tickets being sold to get to away games but obviously not to the credit of my own booking history.

And more if you play with three centre halves, think of it as an entertainment tax.
