Pompey settle for 3800 tickets

Pompey settle for 3800 tickets

I know I said only yesterday that the FA cup game with United needed to be put on the backburner for now and focus on the next two league games was most important at the moment - starting against Sunderland this weekend - but with the ticket allocation for that game confirmed it needed a mention...

6000 tickets were available to the club and we have decided to take up the option on a little over half the amount, with 3800 requested - and these are on sale to everyone now.

The game is being shown on the box and has the early kick off time of 12.45, so it could be too difficult for some to get to, so they might think it is just as well to watch it on the box. Is 3800 tickets too few, not enough or just right? My own thinking is this is a decent amount.

So far - up until this morning - just over 1000 have been sold, but whatever tickets remain unsold - if they are - the club have to pay for anyway so you can understand why the full allocation has not been taken up.

To be honest if we can sell the full allocation we have taken - and even with the factors mentioned there is every chance - then 3800 will be a very good turnout wouldn't it.

I thought that, for Cup ties, a minimum of 15% of the capacity had to be offered; that's more than 10,000 by my reckoning. Televised or not, I'd always prefer to see Pompey live so to learn that tickets are still available is disappointing. If only I could go myself; Gill would never forgive me though.

The ticket office seemed busy - I was quite hopeful that there would be enough demand for the whole 6,000. We MUST get behind the lads for this match - if we want them to win the club we must be there and cheer them on, especially for this really difficult tie.

Tony I agree with your maths at 10,000 and tracy yes we do need to get behind the lads. Strange six years ago we had no trouble selling 9,000 for a luncgtime kick off - how times have changed.

should of allocated the 6,000 by my knowledge because if people knew 6,000 were being allocated to pompey fans they would decide to go and not think oh its only 3,800 i wont get a ticket so i think there should of been more but im in australia so who am i 2 say

pompey didnt want to be stuck with the bill did they 'if' we didnt sell all 6000 - i know you have to take into acount traveling costs and time it takes not forgetting its a 12.45 kick off and on the box, but i reckon 38 quid a pop per adult for old trafford isnt bad is it really... i would be 'disappointed' if we didnt sell out the 3800 thb tho.

I must confess guys I am one of those who have decided not to go - as soon as I saw Sky would be showing it live on HD there was no contest... for those that haven't seen SKY HD: I have a 50" Samsung [1080p] with Dolby Digital surround [crowd all over the room] and the experience is pretty d*mn impressive.

ive never been to old trafford before thats why i am going - if i had, depending on if i 'really' could have afforded it - which i cant tbh - i 'might' have gave it a miss as i wouldve know i could have watched it on tv in anycase, not a 50" tv tho :-) i have a really good feeling about this game tho...
