    Since I have a PR5 postcode, I’ll tootle on up to their ground and purchase the odd ticket. Well it worked for me and HORc when we sent Rovers down ( chicken on the pitch game ) and we were int the home end tek’in piss ( and I found a tenner on’t way out !

    Ali, on one Fylde website there is the number to ring for tickets. Away fans can normally ring Fylde direct for tickets though for this game there is obviously no chance. I’m hoping to use my postcode as well. May have a better chance.[/quote]

    I bought a ticket for the home end when we played at Preston in our premiership promotion season. Sat on my hands when we scored then when they equalised only 3 people didn’t jump up, me my mate and a fella in a wheel chair. Not jumping up gave the game away and it felt a little uncomfortable for the rest of the match, not something I would do again.[/quote]

    Many years ago I was in the Derby end when we played at the Baseball Ground and it was certainly an uncomfortable afternoon.

    Mate from Preston has been on to me and will be sorting me out if I don’t get a ticket.

    Happy days.

    Latics arent at fault. Fylde are. They get 1600 on average, and have given us 1357. So thats 3000.

    I don’t recall us giving Newcastle 10,000 tickets for the fixture last season.[/quote]

    Irrelevant. Fool.

    In your eyes maybe. I happen to think that 1357 is very generous, and bearing in mind our average away following is less than 1,000, it still makes provision for over 400 tickets to be available to those who hardly ever travel.

    I suspect there may still be tickets available on Thursday morning.

    Not a chance. Not all the allocation will go to the ballot. Club officials, players comps, etc will take a chunk. I predict around 1100 to go to ballot, if not less.

    Considering we took 2500 to Blackpool, and plenty missed out, including myself. And add the extra interest in the game being an FA Cup tie on an unusual ground against new opposition, and non league at that, I’d say there is no chance of any tickets being left after the ballot.

    Ballotts are for when you have 4000-6000 people who religiously go to away games and the club only had 1,000. in the case of Wigan we have around 500 that go to 80% of our away games and they should be the ones that are ring fenced, regarldless off season tickets.
    In this case there could very well be 1,000 brand new fans going to Fylde like those that went to wembley for our semi and final, leaving those 500 who go to Gillinham and Charton a Tuesday night at home to watch it on TV. lets see what Thursday brings

    Can’t disagree

    The away teams are only allowed 15% of the capacity for FA cup games, so that’s 900 so Flyde have done us a favour we all know its crap this ballot but its not Flydes fault.

    I have heard that that the SGSA has limited this game to 4,200 therefore not allowing Fylde extra income and making it more impressive that Latics have got almost a third of the ground

    Just had a word with Paul Cook in The Johnny Todd ( pub in Kirkby ) and asked if he’s going to throw the game and settle for a draw so that all you unhappy fans can go to the replay :woohoo:

    Tell you what he says later; he’s at the bar getting me a pint !

    What/who are the SGSA?

    Going off how Fylde are distributing tickets, it seems to me they are aiming for 6000, as per the grounds capacity. They predict a sell out.

    Utter shite watching in home end. Would rather watch on TV. Club should have done it for those who’ve had season tickets longest like other clubs do then number of away games. Simple.

    I don’t think the demand will be as high as people are expecting, a lot of people like myself will only be finishing work late and will struggle to get there in time. An easy option to settle down in front of the TV with a nice glass of wine.

    I think the ballot idea was a good one. Gives the club a chance to look at fans away day purchases before allocating tickets. My lads been to every one this season so hoping he gets one.
    This ballot will see all tickets sold, for sure.

    Club wont be looking and allocating to people because of their history, a ballot is a random pure chance draw. A lucky dip, if you like. Its pot luck.

    As I haven’t won anything in a competition or a draw since 1998, I don’t fancy my chances when I log in and check on Thursday. But I wont begrudge the ones who do get picked out, its just a game of luck and ‘random chance’, as John Beck used to say.

    Does that ring fenced 500 include the MANY that do not go to home games any more choosing an away day out as the only games they attend, these contribute not one penny to WAFC.

    In an ideal world it would be:
    1. Season Ticket holders with X amount of away ticket purchases
    2. Season Ticket holders
    3. Those with away ticket purchase history
    4. Whatever is left to General Sale

    Doesn’t matter if you have a ticket allocation of 8,000 or 80, this is fairest way of doing it: ie, reward those have put money into the club first.

    Agree with you there Standish. Not much to argue with.
    Can you use your contacts to tell the so called top guys within the club that decided a ballot was a good idea. Or an even better idea to tell them to bring back the away season ticket, as that gets rid of any excuse.
