Next there will be league bans for ST holders who don't go to Cup games. Like Utd do (or used to , not sure if they finally realised that was not a good approach)

Whilst not wishing to give the club ideas, the way to police it is to have all ST holders upload a photo of themselves and for that to flash up on screen for the turnstile operator to check when a card is used

Haven't they already done something similar?  I'm sure I had to upload a photo not long ago....
Nah, they're not going to pay for that.  And the operators aren't going to scrutinise it like a passport either. 

The staff struggle to open a bottle of pop or pour a beer from a can - checking photos vs what they have on record will be way beyond them.

The investment to have digital imaging at the turnstiles is a way off I would have thought.

& don’t forget the ‘Pat downs’ outside the turnstile, the single most pointless thing ever…would never locate a weapon/missile/flare in a million years

imagine the delays / queue lengths if they had to start checking / reading documentation etc

Holte Suite not available again tomorrow. Now, I don't want to be cunty about it but I will. Would it be correct that ST were sold on the understanding that access would be available, but not guaranteed due to capacity, for this area? I can't be arsed to see if it is mentioned on the website but could there be a case of miss-selling here in that there is less available for a higher cost. Would they have to have pointed it out at the time of purchase?

This may sound rather nit picky and maybe even unnecessary but let's face facts, the Club are being like that so why the fuck shouldn't we?

There was a mention of this for the Hibs home and away tickets, it says something like if you fail to attend this fixture it may impact on your ability to get tickets for later rounds.

Sure with Manchester United you got to join the cup scheme where you automatically get tickets,if you don't and reach the final, you are omitted, happened to a friend although they did email him very late on if he wanted a ticket for the final at £250 a ticket I think it was

I think you may have a good point here . Whether the club will listen i doubt it. You'd probably need to go to Small Claims Court , Villa would lose and refund you and then probably give you a life ban.

Brentford do this too.

Brentford's ground has a capacity of 17,000, a vast and wealthy population on their doorstep and the novelty of doing better than they've ever done before. They can racketeer away with the blessing of a big chunk of their crowds.

So, given the various discussions about tickets etc, I thought I'd check where I might be on the season ticket waiting list.

Last season in September I was emailed with my place on the waiting list but haven't had it yet for this. I was told by someone in the ticket office that they were going to do the same again this season, taking into consideration those who didn't want to renew/didn't take up the offer of a new season ticket and then update everyone. For whatever reason they've not done it yet for htis season so there's no update. All they could tell me was the date I was added to the list and when the list was started.

Villa are rolling out digital season tickets.

Has anyone already had there's activated for a game or will tomorrow be the first one ?

I've already used a digital ticket for the Euro games, so I'm hopeful that it'll work ok (as long as people just tap the top of the ticket reader and don't try to put their phones into the slot)
