Away Fans

Post by dagger4eva » Fri Sep 27, 2019 2:59 pm

Just been on the Chorley website and read their small match preview. One thing that stood out was the part they have for Admission (as follows)

"Admission: Tickets are available on the gate & online: £21 adults, £15 over-65s/students, £12 10-16s & £2 under-10s. Away fans will be based in the West Stand via turnstiles 10 & 11."

Our website shows the following:

Away Fans Tickets

West Stand***
Adult £21
Concession £15
Juniors (10-16 year olds) £12
Under-10 £2

***Please note, Dagenham & Redbridge FC has the right allocate the West Stand to away fans if there is an away following of more than 600 or the safety officer deems it necessary to have segregation.

Am I mistaken or wasn't the rule changed so that we HAD to offer away teams the option of Terrace tickets? If so, perhaps a number of Chorley (and other away fans) are being put off of coming as a result of the prices listed on their website.

From what i have seen the option for away fans to stand in the sieve has not been place in any games this season.

I did think it had been quiet at the end of the Sieve. Im led to believe that actually the rule of having to offer away fans a terrace ticket was scrapped at the start of this season.

I don't care which club it is, but £21 for National League football is nothing short of scandalous!

Meanwhile in the Premier League ........

You’d think away fans would just come in the home turnstiles at those prices. If they kept quiet and mingled in I’m sure it’d be quite easy.
Be alert, the world needs more lerts!
