£24? WTF. How much were the tickets for the league game earlier this season? At least the home game is reasonable at £19

Anyone know the allocation and how sales are going, I have seen a picture of the queue today, but I can't get there.

Are they answering the phones! Don't want to miss out.

Think they are charging slightly above their usual match day ticket price. Seems excessive for League 2 but they are one of the most expensive clubs.

Think most people have suggested it'll be around 1,400.

Club have said there will only be one person on the phones (being a bank holiday), so might not be worth the time, money and hassle!

Massive queue at the ticket office. They should have made this priority just one per season ticket holder.

Are we being charged differently to the home fans then ?
Just had a quick look on their website, they are charged the same for seating, but they also have two stands that are standing so obviously cheaper

Greedy b***ard Stevenage owners. £13 at ours for OAP ticket in main stand. £21 for a ticket behind the goal at Stevenage. Feel I've bought the seat so I may be taking it home with me. Hope we stuff em good and proper.

Ticket Update: We have so far sold 300 tickets for the play-off away game at Stevenage

So no panic yet..although the picture of queues on faceache look quite long.

I am telling you John, we have sold more than 300. I was there at 8.40 this morning (am not able to get down any other time) and did not get served till around 11ish. In fairness the guys in the office are doing their best but there was a hold up when they opened up as the system was showing a price of £19 for the tickets and not £24 and they were having to wait for confirmation from Stevenage.
Whilst I was there people were getting both home and away and most people were buying several tickets. I saw two people buy 20+

As if the club would tell any fibs....wash your mouth out Jacks..reminds me of the 10700 official crowd announcement we had a few weeks ago when PB then opened his mouth on the radio and said great 11,400 crowd we had.

I've just got back from the ticket office, but we have 100% sold more than 300 and yeah some people have bought 15+ for home and away legs! But I could only get 2 sets of home and away with my season card. Must be who you know in there.

Can only say what I saw -unless they has someone else's ST but remember like me I was able to get 4( as a shareholder I was entitled to another 2) my husband was able to get 4 and then I had two other ST which is another 4. It doesn't take much adding up
