2,200 tickets for Town's final Sky Bet League One trip
Town’s last away Sky Bet League One game of the seasons sees us travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool.
Supporters have been asking about when the tickets will go on for the sale and we can confirm this information.
Town have been allocated 2,200 tickets at Bloomfield Road.
The tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 28th March with priority going to season ticket holders first, then those with loyalty points and finally on general sale.
The club has been in discussion with the Supporters Parliament, the Away Travel Club and OSC Travel to try and make sure those fans who have attended the majority of away games over the season get priority as well.
Town CEO Brian Caldwell has been discussing the Blackpool ticket situation for a while to find out a fair way to allocate the tickets.
“We’ve been speaking to Blackpool over the last couple of weeks and it’s been flagged up that the maximum allocation they can give us is 2,200”, said Brian.
“We are looking at this and thinking that potentially this could be a huge game for the football club based on our current form and where we are in the league. It’s also the last away league game of the season, so I’m sure, no matter what, a lot of people will want to travel to Blackpool.
“My concern is that those 2,200 tickets aren’t going to satisfy demand for those who potentially might want to buy tickets, so we’ve consulted with the Supporters’ Parliament and with the travel clubs, and we have had to have a long conversation about whether there’s a best way to do this.
“To be honest there’s no simple solution, so what we’ve decided to do is to allocate the tickets on a one by one basis to season ticket holders, but we’ve also identified those on our system that have been away to 10 or more away games this season.
“There are actually only 26 people on that list that aren’t season ticket holders and have been to 10 or more away games, and we will include those 26 people in the interest of fairness because a lot of them might not come from this area so they can’t justify a season ticket, but they have been to every away game.
“There’s no easy way of doing this, which is why we have consulted with the Supporters’ Parliament and the travel clubs to see what the fairest way of doing it is and I think we all agree that perhaps this is the fairest way by opening it up to season ticket holders and the 26 people who are non-season ticket holders who have been to 10 or more away games.”
