4 mates of mine have had season tickets in A2 for years have just been told theyíre being kicked out of their seats.
That's a surprise.  Isn't that the area where they allocate seats for Lower Grounds?

A thread with a couple of bits of info on H&V Facebook https://www.facebook.com/share/p/QaVNxWiCyBwMn35X/?mibextid=K35XfP

Sounded like lower parts of upper North blocks, and having to wait until renewals are done to see where you can be relocated in the same stand.

From what I could quickly scan affected:
North Upper T5 Row  F
Doug Lower (block unnamed) Row M

I thought I saw something somewhere about an £80 club shop voucher compensation but canít remember where that wasÖ

I feel massively for anyone losing their seat and I hope you all get sorted with something you are ok with.

I've seen a lot of criticism with how the club has handled it.  Other than being a bit quicker off the mark after Heck mentioned it, I'm not sure there's any process they could have done that would have pleased everyone impacted by this?

I know it's the "price of progress", but it seems very harsh. Having what are presumably the best season ticket seats at the moment (otherwise why would the club be taking them?) the affected people are now going to be left with what's remaining, which will surely be the worst available tickets, assuming that 99% of current season ticket holders who are unaffected will renew. And £80 compensation to spend in the club shop? I'd be amazed if that's even enough to buy a new replica home kit when they're announced.

Yeah, a discount on their new seat would have made more sense.

Yep, massive own goal, best to worst seats in the same stand, breaking up old friendship groups, seen reference to 50yrs in the same location across stands. Would be gutted.

A proper wedge off the renewal not an (unsigned) shirt-ish value.

Makes Heck's words about improvements seem a bit hollow. "It is not going to be for one group of fans, it is going to be for all of our fans."

Tell to that the 900 people affected by this.

I still donít know if my seat in the upper DE Is safe yet or not but to think of all the season-ticket holders who have loyally renewed through years of shit football, under the likes of Lambert, McLeish and Garde, who are now considered as surplus to requirements, it makes me really angry.

That's the key point. As soon as it was announced, the affected people should have been notified the same day by email, with a follow up letter
