windermereROYAL Wouldn`t have thought extra revenue from away fans is top of the owners priorities, if it was they would have dumped twenty`s plenty a long time ago.
The last thing we need is up to 4000 noisy away fans turning it into in effect a home game for them, no other clubs do it, why the hell should we?


How does persistent standing and singing tally with a child friendly family stand?

Because we can’t sell our own tickets so might as well offer them to away fans.

If you moved C1871 to ED stand, you’d more likely get 2 singing sections - C1871 are limited to 2000 fans where they are now but could increase in size if they moved to ED, hence increasing noise levels. Plus - spurs the players on in the 2nd half. Don’t think it’s a stupid suggestion/dead horse at all personally

What about the fans who come because of C1871?

What about the STHs who don't want to be displaced by C1871?

What do you think a max couple of hundred grand would do for a budget of ~£25m?

The vast majority of teams don't fill their away allocation with us. The downsides massively outweigh the minimal extra revenue.

Why do you think you get to tell other people where to sit?

They're frauds who shouldn't bother coming.

Are people still going on about away allocations?

Leeds didn't sell their full allocation.

Sheff Weds & Charlton sold out 2219 tickets but still didn't actually bring a full allocation of fans.

We are giving clubs enough.

Leeds are also whinging that they are only getting 2300 at Huddersfield even though Huddersfield get over 22k each game in a 24k stadium.

Leeds are the biggest club in the division by some distance, don't they deserve higher away allocations than most?

No, they don't.

Of course they do, they deserve special treatment.
