Anyone know why they have been taken off sale and will nor be available on the day? Apparently Grimsby Safty Advisory Commitee have done it in conjunction with Police!
Surely this will just encourage them to buy tickets for home stands!

If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

I would imagine they have sold their 1900 allocation. They were well on the way to that yesterday.

Quoted Text
Tickets have this morning been taken off-sale for Coventry City’s away game at Grimsby Town.

The decision to take tickets off sale was taken by Grimsby’s Safety Advisory Group, following consultation from their local police force.

Following this decision, tickets will NOT be available to buy on the day of the game.

Coventry City are disappointed that more of the Sky Blue Army will not be able to attend, despite both Grimsby and Coventry City anticipating on the day sales, but unfortunately this is beyond our control.

Strange decision, reading that makes me think they hadn't sold their allocation but expected more to travel that we could accommodate? Or that the police hadn't prepared enough resources for the large away following.

To be fair to Humberside police they don't have the staff or resources to cope with big away followings as it has shown in the past.

Why do they need loads of police tomorrow? Have Coventry got a known force of hooligans? Plus ours only turn up for the big local derby's. Very strange decision. Also with games like this they should open up the main stand for families of away fans, Plymouth have a family stand where both home and away fans are welcome.

It's not even like the force is stretched tomorrow with Scunny away and Hull hosting Burton. Very strange decision unless there is specific intelligence.

If we are now happy to be back in the receiving of good numbers of away fans that had disappeared with most Conference followings, then whatever safety plans that were in place for that league have to be updated and re-appraised for the League followings.

They have to plan for our brilliant following going to their grounds, so why are we any different?

Away fans bring income - we should relish more income going into the coffers this year from bigger relegated teams arriving here !
