I tick both those boxes, but I'll be in Switzerland watching the Zurich derby, so that's one more available.

I did but won't be going to this one. Seemed a good way to stop any squabbling as most who went to those will be S.T. holders too.
It's what the big clubs do for in demand matches.

Why is there a limit when Blackpool fans who are protesting with good reason and boycotting games?. Most of the ground will be empty so why not get as much revenue as you can from away fans. I,ve not looked at what they have been averaging for home games but it is a good size stadium which should be more than adequate to supply demands for away allocations.

They don't want away fans outnumbering home fans.
They don't care about the money as they have asset stripped it anyway (Whelan haters take note of what it is really like to have someone who is pocketing the money)

I heard the owners don't want more Wigan there than the home fans, though I don't see what difference it would make.

Talking to Blackpool fans, the reckon the Oystons just want to be able to sell the stadium to a developer.

It's looking like there will be a demand so I should have just said it's what happens at clubs where there is a demand for tickets. They work out a way so that the fans who have been to most games get first dabs so the 600 or so who went in the Checkatrade should get first dabs.Most of those would be ST holders and would have gone to the league cup game too so next in line League cup attendees who didn't go to the Checkatrade game. Seems fair all round.

Or first dabs to the fans who go to most of the away games. These people would be on data bases so should even be offered first dabs at tickets.
Would be better if Blackpool just sent a reasonable amount of tickets in the first place.

It's simple Donny, first dabs go to the fans that show the most commitment to the club, and that is the season ticket holders.
They are the ones that fork out up front before they even know who will be playing for the club and that loyalty deserves preferential treatment when it comes to away tickets.
There should be somekind of perk for non season ticket holders who travel the length and breadth of the country to away matches but most are probably season ticket holders anyway.
Make the DW an egg free zone.

But surely fans who traveled to Charlton in midweek and the many others who travel to away games week in week out should have preference to anyone, season ticket holders or not.
I think the main motivation rather than commitment for purchasing a season ticket for most is the cost. Would we have sold 6500 or so this season if season tickets had been £500-00 plus?
Like I said though the vast majority of supporters who saw the two Blackpool games and league games away will be season ticket holders anyway so season ticket holders who have been to away games or cup games should take preference for tickets when there is a potential demand and that should be limited to one each.

What happens if you couldn't make the checkatrade game due to the early k.o but haven't missed another game? Could still miss out.

ST holders first is usually the easiest way

A lot of clubs have a loyalty points scheme were season ticket holders get a point for every away and cup game they attend and when popular matches go on sale, they get first dabs. However, unless demand regularly exceeds supply then it becomes a pointless exercise. If Blackpool away is going to be a potential flashpoint then sell to season ticket holders only - they are the ones with most to lose if they misbehave.

The main motivation for buying a season ticket for most people is commitment. When you buy a ticket you are guaranteed your usual seat and you're in it for the season - good or bad. The alternative is to buy tickets ad-hoc, but when it's not going too well, or if you can't make it, you don't buy a ticket - and the club doesn't benefit from this.

Likewise, people who travelled to Charlton bought tickets off Charlton - not Wigan.

Therefore, those who support Wigan Athletic financially should get priority - ie. like Horc says, the season ticket holders.

Then when they've had their window, it should go to those with a history of away game purchases.

All good points being made and under normal circumstances right but at the end of the day even with 2100 Wigan fans there the stadium will be nearly empty and many Latics fans who want to go will miss out needlessly. What allocation has all the clubs who have been to Cesspool had?.

So you don't think that season ticket holders who have an history of following Latics away should have first choice then?
If I had a season ticket and had been to all away games this season and missed out on a local away trip because someone had got in the queue before me I would be pissed off wouldn't you?

No, I do agree with that.

Why would the club put a complicated ticket priority system in place for something that is only an issue once or twice a season?

I don't buy into this "I go to most aways but I don't have a season ticket".
