No idea, wouldn't make a difference to me anyway as taking my daughter. They weren't available immediately but the seats were coming and going as I was logged on.


I got 2 tickets Block 105 row 37 yesterday morning about 9:30 as I selected family tickets it automatically allocated 105


Quite possibly because I put both membership numbers in (daughter is 11) it allowed me to order in those blocks.


I have just put my membership number in to see what seats were being sold and I could only choose blocks 517 and 519. I will be really surprised if we had sold all other blocks already ..

Nope, you can only use each number once.


Ah its just when it said "Member Card Holders with 750+ royalty points will be able to purchase an additional 3 tickets (4 in total)" - i thought that meant in addition to the 1 i bought in phase 1?!!


surely it does, as it says you can buy an additional 3 tickets on the second day


I tried this morning, and it said i'd already used the member number.. apparently has worked fine for others though. Mine was a ST number i bought 2 with yesterday so should have been able to get another 2..

Just tried again and it is letting me get through to the purchase page..

leicsRoyal Whilst online at 9.08 nothing was available in bottom tiers and then seats in 105 and 106 became available.


Weren't 105/106 being sold as the family blocks ?

Probably the process involves seats getting held while transactions complete, then people decide they don't like the seats and try again etc etc. So those seats would disappear for a while, then come back.

Doesn't the additional thing only count if you've not already purchased?

So if you're a 750 pt member and wanted 4 tickets you'd have to wait until today

Have just bought 3 in 519 as it gave me no other option and said everything else is sold out.

Would have preferred better seats but it is a gamble to wait to see if more are released and so hey ho.

That was my understanding and and so despite having 1500 plus points I waited til today. A tad frustrating as it means I have missed the better seats.

I waited until today to get 3 seats together. I assumed that there would still be Cat1 £98 seats but when I bought at 9am it showed no Cat 1availability. Had to go for Cat 2 in block112

If you wanted 4 together you needed to wait.
Otherwise if you were happy to get 1 ticket you could do,it on a Thursday. You could then get 3 more today, but they would not be next to your Thursday ticket.

Sometimes we over think things, it works as described, no need to make it more complicated than the instructions say !

But that doesn't specify in addition to a previous purchase. It might be poorly phrased and they mean "additional" as increasing the allowance.

It wouldn't have thought there would be too many takers if it does mean an additional two to the previous, as you wouldn't be sat together

Less of your clever dick remarks son. If you've got your tickets then leave the thread and go back to AE until it's lunchtime.

This is surely the issue because if I had bought one for myself yesterday for me I would end up in an entirely different place to the kids. There did not seem much point in that.

There will be loads of people using it. I used my points yesterday to buy tickets for family sat together, they are then being used today to buy tickets for friends who don't care where they sit.
It seems a pretty fair and flexible way of doing it

So you buy today and sit together....

They can't make it perfect for everyone but it seems everyone is getting tickets, everyone can get tickets together if they want to. You may not get the exact tickets you hoped for but that can't happen anyway.
