Yep. If I canít go, which is usually quite a lot early season , friends have mine for free.

They canít police it.
They could technically if they are going down that route .

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....

They cant even employ enough staff who have the mental capacity and load to pour a pint at HT, so random spot checks on ST and seats are a pipe dream

Club off the pitch at the minute are so bloody detached from reality

Maybe just maybe, have a better functioning website to allow for fan id changes etc rather than phone lines that dont work!!

Absolutely right. Thatís the obvious approach. Allow people to add friends and family online, and then season ticket holders can just reassign as and when.

This is one of my great bugbears of modern life. Companies that make it possible to do online, usually instantly, things that make them money but then force you to make a phone call for the bits that donít, when there is absolutely no technical reason to do so.

For example, i had a newspaper subscription which I initially took out online in about thirty seconds.

Last week I wanted to cancel it and had to phone them to do so (sat in a queue for thirty minutes).

Genuinely, I think companies should be forced by law to not be able to have a deliberately frictional slow process to cancel or change a service that can be bought online entirely without friction.

Villa and their fucking resorting to phone lines are, Iím afraid, another cynical example of this.

I think that was for the first few games back during the pandemic, when there was an application/ballot system for the few thousand let in.
Understandable at that time that the club needed to know who was in the ground

Am I right in thinking that if I can't go and hand it to a mate, I have to notify the club as to who is using my ticket?
Theoretically yes.  In reality no.

Nah, they're not going to pay for that.  And the operators aren't going to scrutinise it like a passport either.

I really struggle getting up to midweek games so always ask my mates in Brum if they would like the use of my season ticket....I never ask for any money for it either.

I would imagine from next season we will be gaining access to the ground via an app on our phone (maybe a problem for me as I do not have a mobile phone!)
