FA Cup

Have to feel for the club - best cup draw we could have had at this stage (Notts County at home) and no fans allowed

Hopefully TV money will be forthcoming for this fixture

Yes hopefully, and if not one would expect a large take up on the stream.

Streaming is £12 for next Saturday according to the club's website https://www.kltown.co.uk/2020/10/16/cup-tie-to-be-screened-in-corn-exchange/ and season ticket holders will have to pay as they would for entrance to cup games in 'normal' times.  Slight difference on the programmes with a combined programme for the next 3 games priced at £7 but with £2 p&p

That's a shame. It's not "normal" times for anyone and the season ticket holders have been generous and supportive enough to buy their tickets knowing what the situation was likely to be with regards to being able to attend games.

I know the Club needs money to survive, but apparently they now know that the grant money is being made available next week, so imo a gesture to season ticket holders would have been well accepted.

Seems crazy that the people who have supported the Club financially, probably more than most, are having to pay for this one off game when apparently there has been some "non essential" people allowed into ground to watch league games.

I feel a different kind of small gesture would have been welcome, and of course some of the season ticket holders may well have decided they would pay for the stream anyway.  :dontknow:

£12 for streaming, £7 for a programme ( reduced from £15).  What on Earth makes you think the Club gives a flying flock ( of birds) for its supporters, B&G? 

Take, Take Take.   Is it any wonder that fans will be in the Nap, Live & Let Live watching for free and supping cheap beer.   Sometimes you reap what you sow.

What licences are required to show streaming to the general public. Doesn't stop at PRS.

Accepted Jesus, but as B&G mentioned this is not normal times. Kind gesture if S.T.H. were given this game "Free".

IF we were to progress past Notts C, (note the big IF) I would be more than happy to pay to view the next FA Cup Round.

Just read KLTFC website ref FA Cup rules prevent Season Ticket holders are not allowed "Free" access.

Quote: "Please note that season ticket holders must purchase a stream for this fixture and will not be provided with a free pass due to rules of the competition."

Couldn't agree more.
I know times are difficult, but for individuals, not just football clubs.
Many people are struggling financially.
And the stream price is about the highest in the league, some actually offer free streams.
Would have been nice to offer free stream for the friendlies, while they got to grips with the technology.
But alas, nothing is free at King's Lynn football club.

WLM. There are always ways around these things, if you try hard enough.  If you watched the opening day game on BT Sport ( plenty of camera angles), you may have noticed several people were watching the game.  One young man was sat smack bang next to SC.   Now I’m sure he and many others were classed as ‘essential’ staff on the day.  So if the Club can get away with this then I’m sure they can find away of rewarding loyal fans who have paid around £20 a game for live streaming of a League game.

Lols very much like the Club adhere’s to the FA rules when it suits them.
