windermereROYAL Small ground. very possible everyone that wants tickets will not get them.


Everyone that wants a ticket will be fine

You still standing by that?! RFC's twitter is in MELTDOWN I tell you!!! :wink:


The only away league match we've sold out this season from memory is Brighton and that went straight on general sale. Arsenal went after a few days but even as a member card holder I managed to get one under my own card. Ticket prices were cheap and it also coincided with half term. Man Utd didn't sell out despite tickets being subsidized. Evidence suggests it won't sell out but happy to be proved wrong.

I think you're right. We'll probably sell around 60% of tickets in the first few days. Then gradually over the following week we'll sell out.

It may have been different had we been third with a win needed for automatic promotion. However, it's a game which doesn't mean anything really other than securing our final playoff position (hopefully) and finding out who we will be up against.

Reading have taken the full available allocation of 1,680 (340 seated and 1,340 standing)

Given that it's the last day of the season, that Reading will have qualification for the play offs to celebrate, that it's a new ground for us all, it's inflatables day and that we might actually not get stuffed too badly, I would expect this to sell out a lot more rapidly than any previous game.

Think those that can buy before the end of next week should be OK but it may not last for very long after that.

Already got one ticket guaranteed but I have 2495 points at the moment on my other card. WIll have to get a forest ticket to get over the 2500 threshold. Not sure if that will be enough so if anyone has a spare with more points I'll take it. :lol:

Nice. I've missed Leeds, Blackburn, Rotherham, Preston and Fulham and the Brighton league game.

Was out of the country for Fulham but the rest can be filed under "cba".

#shitfan :(

Was one of the 69 at the Bristol Rovers EFL trophy though so also file under "total idiot". :lol:

Away games are so much better than home ones. Was up for Burton but won't be able to get a ticket most likely.

Picked up my one in the ticket office this morning. Was a couple of people in there but didn't seem that there was a massive rush going on. I think the 12pm KO may mean that these will take slightly longer to sell. It will be a pretty early start from Reading. It also looks like by the time of that game, we will be confirmed in the play offs and not able to overtake Newcastle so there may not be the rush for tickets as their might have been.

That's the reality - we need the stars to align to achieve automatic promotion and as soon as Newcastle win a game we're out of it. If we haven't confirmed playoffs by then I'm sure we'll sell out, but as things stand its looking likely that the Wigan game will be the one that gets us over the line, if we don't do it against Forest next week.

So based on that, about 1000 sold already then. Doesn't look like sales will get much further than Friday at best.

I'd imagine most buy online these days - much easier and quicker than having to trek down to the Madejski to get a ticket.
