https://www.theticketingbusiness.com/2020/05/07/debate-booking-fees-refunded/

It seems to me that everyone other than the Companies selling tickets believe that a full refund is the way to go.   :dontknow:

I suppose the Clubs employing the services of such Companies could make it part of their terms and condition between them that their supporters MUST obtain a full refund. If the Companies don't want to play ball, then find one that will.

Why do people involved in football appear to think that Supporters have bottomless pockets?   :dontknow:

I was under the impressions that the FA have to decide.

If there is an isolation period, I would guess that decision is more or less made for them.

Surely Setch would be prepared to concede the game, allowing us to play Alfreton on Saturday.

If people refuse to obey Stewards requests concerning safety, Virus or anything else, why were they not removed from the ground?

It's not just putting themselves in danger, its exposing others to risk as well, even those not attending the game.

Do you know if the H & S guy has been informed of it and who the people involved were?

Apparently  the Council were sending a Covid Marshall to the game yesterday, so time will tell if the Club is punished for it.

As far as teething problems go, I guess that was the idea of Clubs having a "test" game.

With the stand seating 350. Surely the other 225 could be social distances around the other 3 sides of the ground without people bunching up ?  Sometimes people just need to use their own common sense.  Then again to me, common sense means not attending.

Gate figure of 625 given, but I know of two regulars who think there was about 800-850.

If that's the case, could it be it was 625 via on line booking with the balance being season ticket holders, staff, sponsors etc?

850 would require more effort when it involves social distancing, than 625.   :dontknow:

Torquay not being very complimentary on their forum regarding the pitch at the Walks.

"Mudheap" and "worst in the National Leage" are just two comments.

Thankfully Torquay Manager viewed matters differently and is more realistic about the reason behind the points being shared.

...and looking at the rest of the league, the vast majority had crowds in the 700's, so more the mood of the nation rather than a local phenomenon

The new normal until the start of next season?   :dontknow:

Excellent result and performance today it seems, so well done to the team. Not surprised at the low crowd attendance at all although it was even worse than I forecast.

Same here. I didn't expect it to be anywhere near capacity but I didn't expect it to be at the levels we had when in UCL.

It's anyone's guess why people didn't attend. I would guess peoples reasons will be varied, but personally I would assume its the fear of the virus (sensible) and the hike in ticket prices (especially at this time of year) that played the major roles.

Great result and performance though................I really didn't expect that either.

Mr Cleeve surprised at 500-600 and blames the Government for putting the fear of God into people I think 60,000 deaths may be more the reason Mr Cleeve. Get real. People will not risk dying before the vaccine by watching a football match

If the Government have put the fear of God into people then well done them!

I guess there can’t be many left now and just hoovering up the last few tickets this morning.

I'm not so sure on that one. It will be an interesting one to see.

Somebody has said on another thread about 1,000 to 1,100.

Personally I would think anywhere near a thousand would be a good result and although would obviously not be what Cleeve would want, from zero to a 1000 is not to be sniffed at and should be regarded as a sucess.

Lots of things coming into play at moment. Obviously a very serious Pandemic, big price hike, dislike of social distancing rules, concern that people will not observe such rules, lack of seating due to restrictions, Christmas shopping and the expense involvec, reduced income for many due to Covid, current form of the team etc etc.

On the positive side, the game is against the league leaders.

Crowd behaves and then build from there again, especially if we get the better of Torquay today.

I don't know quite how this would work as no tickets are being sold at box office, but Cleeve has tweeted along the lines of if you have already purchase a ticket (presumably on line),  you can buy more, so bring a friend.
