According to the ticketing system, they've only been printing Spurs away tickets today to get out for next weekend – mine was ordered a fortnight ago. With the post as it is around our way, I wouldn't back all 3,000 tickets to make it through in time either. If they're gonna wait until it's a sell-out before printing every away game, those collection queues are only getting longer.

My daughter had to pick up a ticket at Stamford bridge because it was posted late, she was told she’d need ID but didn’t, the ticket she was given turned out to be a duplicate of one already held by another member of the party she was with, she didn’t know this until it wouldn’t work at the turnstile, luckily a lad standing near in the queue let her have a spare he was carrying. I guess he didn’t realise being kind carries such a risk.

Glad to hear that ST holders are still able to pass tickets to friends and family, but contacting the TO to inform them seems a bit OTT. Is there any reason for this such as Covid tracking and does the friend/family member get match history added to their ID? It doesn’t make much sense when there are no checks at the game and just causes more unnecessary admin work for the TO staff.

Not sure if it goes on their history, I’d presumed it would, will monitor.

“A season card holder advertising home tickets at the value of 1/19th” is not allowed so
Whereas in the past I might have said if there was a friend on here who was a parent with an under 14 happy to be in reserve for the family stand in case we can’t make should get in touch, I believe doing that now might contravene rules.

it sounds like advertising is the offence, not entirely clear if allowing someone to buy our pair of tickets for the princely cost price sum of £29.10 would be not allowed and we’re only allowed to give away for free - ie transfer to named folk with ID  🤷🏻‍♂️.

Have a couple of father & sons I know anyway so hopefully won’t ever waste the family zone tix I’m not allowed to sell back to the club.

I'm waiting for one of my tickets to arrive late before I have a proper go about this.  It's not resolving anything posting them out late, only pissing more people off than before.

Got to say though I was disgusted with one email I saw where a lions club ordered tickets only to sell them on, on the basis that they were worried they would lose out in future ballots if  they didn't apply.  On the other hand the Villa created the situation with that away scheme when we were in the Championship.    I am also unhappy about the way the club are dealing with resale tickets - if I had sold my Lower Holte End ticket for wolves I would get something like £12 - the club would then tout the ticket at £39 plus admin fee plus postage. 

Its not all black and white but the Villa have a lot to answer for themselves.
