I saw this Tony.   Sudbury was a sure thing but for the rest ?  I think the Club can count themselves unlucky.  Only £5k now for highlights instead of 10 x that amount for a live game. 

Luck of the draw.   

Still think if he can get on a little run we could see a decent gate.  Think SC was hoping for 3,000 for the big games and 1500 for the other games.   So should be a 3,000 plus Tony.  Maybe not a sell out but decent numbers all the same

I think we would need more than 'a little run' to average those figures over the season.  Might hit 3000 for a couple of the big games (Notts County & Grimsby) but not others that SC will class as Cat A (Wrexham? Stockport?) and unlikely to average anywhere near 1500 for the rest, so if we average 1500 across the season I think that would be more realistic - we are currently on 1375 and that includes the visits of Southend and Chesterfield who I would imagine are likely to be in our top 6 league attendances come the end of the season.  I think the only way we will get near 3000 for Walsall is if SC can agree a price reduction, at least to our 'standard' £3 discount on the Cat A pricing.

Why are Salford always on TV just because they have millionaire Manchester United owners

Maybe they have a Marketing dept that does a good job there.   I think biggest shareholder is Peter Lim, not sure heís anything to do with Man Utd.

Thanks Admin, not sure where the members 24 hour window went but thankfully not looking at a sell out so tickets should still be available today.

Mall, think we need to win at least two of the three fixtures between now and Walsall to really attract the floaters in at the rate set (£20 adult standing) and whilst that isn't impossible looking at the opposition, unfortunately the one home game looks the hardest on paper but lets hope a good crowd (lured by the ticket offer) and the Walks under floodlights might be enough to push the team on.

New box office manager.
Unable to buy tickets online for FA Cup game although a season ticket holder.
Why is the phone never answered? Strange way to run a football club

Peter, is there a new box office manager in post?  From what has been said previously and at the recent fans forum, I didn't think there was a member of staff on-site at the club currently although SC did say that he is looking to appoint a local replacement to Mark Hearle who I guess would be another body in the office.  I initially had problems with my membership (I am not a season ticket holder) and had to ask the club to activate it manually before I could buy tickets so I guess the same maybe true for you as I bought my Walsall ticket earlier.

I will be surprised  if Walsall bring  more than 250 to the Walks.    Shame about  Kettering  getting  knocked  out last night.  I called that result  correctly,makes a change..

Hello from a Walsall fan.
Really looking forward  to coming down on the 6th November, new ground for most of our supporters.
This tie is proving to be very popular with our fans and i can see there being quite an impressive away support for us.
How many tickets are being allocated to us ? Does anyone know ?
In my opinion we will sell a lot more than the 250 quoted above !
See you all soon, UTS.

I wouldn't worry too much.

If you have the money to pay for a ticket, I'm sure that one way or another, you will all get one..

How many do you think will make the trip?
There wouldn't be a sky full of stars if we were all meant to wish on the same one.

Apparently you have allocated us 1089 tickets, i can see us selling 700 / 800 no problem !
2 good league performances from us before then and who knows !
