Play-off ticketing
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:44:34 AM »
Something to debate, was this pushed by the club or council?  Although this looks like a done deal, thankfully as things stand I don't think that even if we get that far in the play-offs we will necessarily be at the Walks as would be a massive PR disaster for the club.

What determines which team will be at home for the Super Play-Off final ? For example is it based on the number of points gained during the regular season ?

Linnets reveal ticketing arrangements for play-off matches
April 15, 2019

Following confirmation that the Linnets will be involved in the Southern Premier Central Division play-offs, the club wishes to inform supporters of initial admittance/match tickets arrangements regarding any subsequent home play-off fixtures.
After meetings involving club officials and representatives from the local authorities, the decision has been taken to make both the Southern Premier Central Division play-off final on Monday, May 6, and the ‘Super play-off' final on Saturday, May 11, ALL TICKET fixtures.
This is of course dependent on the club's progression through the play-offs and other teams' final standings in their respective tables.
Further details of online ticket sales and sales of tickets at the Walks Stadium will be made once the fixtures are known and have been confirmed.
As it stands, any Southern Premier Central Division play-off home semi final, due to be played on Wednesday, May 1, will see the usual policy of cash on admission on the day of the game and online ticket sales in place, along with extra hours of opening for the club’s box office ahead of the Wednesday evening.
Club media officer Mark Hearle added: After last season’s play-off fixture with Slough Town it became clear that our current method of admission, whilst working well for the vast majority of our fixtures, struggles when placed under extra and sustained pressure.
"Scenes of supporters queuing and waiting for admittance to the ground is something that we will be working very hard to avoid if we are hosting either of the finals.
"The local authorities also raised concerns about the issues on the day and by putting these measures in place we hope to achieve a more relaxed entry into the stadium on the match days.
"Our plan is to also have the box office open on both mornings of the games and extra hours in the lead up to the matches for people who do not have internet access.
"I must also stress that anyone arriving on the afternoon without a ticket will not gain entry to the ground."

Can think of a few who will turn up on the day without a ticket who will gain admission.

Average Points per game

Which with the NPL finishing as a 21 team league due to the dissolution of North Ferriby, means it isn't quite as simple as comparing points totals.

As is, with 3 games to go in each league:

NPL

South Shields 80/37=2.16ppg
Warrington     79/37=2.14ppg
Nantwich        66/37=1.78ppg
Gainsborough 61/37=1.65ppg

SPDC

Stourbridge     76/39=1.95ppg
Lynn               73/39=1.87ppg
Alvechurch      71/39=1.82ppg
Stratford         69/39=1.77ppg

So it's likely that whoever wins the play-off final from our league, will be going north for the Super-Play-Off.

SLPS and Isthmian play-off winners will be playing each other in the other super play off.

Is it just me that thinks this is ridiculous that they can't get 3,000 people into the ground on time without being ticket only!? Guess it would have to be like that for every game if Mr Cleeves ambitions of getting into the Football league are ever reached then!
I can imagine there being a lot of the older generation who would potentially go to this who might get left out, or the fairweather fan who decides last minute to pop along to the football but can't get in!?

Might buy a load & become a ticket tout if they're going to turn away potentially paying customers on the gate Stand there selling them myself to people, but yes very unlikely for it to be a home game anyway so shouldn't come to this anyway.

Of course there should be ticket sales on the day,if most people buy online or in advance then what difference would it make,one person in the box office to account for stragglers? :dontknow:

I agree with the clubs stance last year was unsafe, but also agree with Griss the club will probably lose a fair amount of money this way. Why not say there will be 1500 tickets for sale on the day once they’ve gone they’ve gone on top of online and ticket sales it will streamline the process whilst not losing any money.
