Blackpool v Hartlepool United
Saturday 25th March 2017, 3pm
Pools have received over 2000 tickets for the game at Bloomfield Road in March.

And supporters planning on making the trip can take advantage of a real bargain as the Seasiders have reduced ticket prices for this fixture, with Adult tickets just £5 each.

Prices
Adults - £5
Seniors (60+) - £5
Juniors (U19) - £1
Juniors (U11) - Free
Disabled (relevant concession price applies) - £5
Carers - Free (medium, high or advanced rate only)

Tickets are on sale now from the Pools Ticket Office and the Online Ticketing Website (click here).

They will remain on sale until 4pm on Thursday 23rd March, with any remaining tickets then available for sale from the kiosk next to the away entrance at Bloomfield Road.

Any ticket sales on the day of the game will be cash only.


Quoted Text
TICKETS for our fixture away at Blackpool on April 8th will go on sale on Monday 20th March at 9am.

We have received an initial allocation of 1,000 tickets in the North Stand and are priced at the following:

Adults - £22
Seniors (60+) - £18
Junior Under 19 - £10
Junior Under 11 (accompanied with adult/senior) - FOC
Disabled - £22 (or relevant concession price)
Carer - FOC



That's a big difference !

If you are going as I am please do not buy anything in the ground (food + drink) in solidarity to Blackpool fans protests.

I feel guilty going, but I do want to see Town whenever I can.

I would guess they have an offer on for the home fans that day and have to offer the same deal to away supporters as is the done thing. Just unfortunate when its not your supporters that benefits.

Got mine today no problem, club has 1,700 available don't know how many they have shifted but there is still plenty left according to th ticket lass.

We have North stand that holds about 2500 I think. Plus there is another empty stand if we sell them. There will be a ticket for everyone who wants one.

Particularly as the season has gone flat, we're going to finish between 9th and 16th or something similar so our away followings won't be that brilliant for the rest of this season. Hopefully with a potential promotion push next season, the gates full stop might be a little bit better, but they've been fantastic all over for 3 or 4 years now.

Heard Oyston on talksport a few weeks back , what an absolute c.unt that bloke is .
This should be a game we boycott , whether or not it's a top away weekend.

Would imagine we'll take at least a thousand for this one. Perfectly set up for a weekend away to celebrate our return to the Football League.

Even if trains are running on the day, they'll only take you as far as Preston because they're doing line "improvements" so Northern will only be running a replacement bus service between there and Blackpool

Oh the joys of public transport eh? :-/

I might be wrong but I think the work should be finished by the time we play Blackpool and it should be normal service.
If you can call Northern normal.

The planned strike action could still affect services on the day.

The RMT Union have announced that they plan industrial action on Saturday 8 April.

If industrial action goes ahead, it is not yet known how Northern services will be affected. Information will be displayed here as soon as it is available.

Will there be a problem with paying on the day for this one? I'm flying over from the U.S. for a week and am thinking seriously about a day in Blackpool, but having to get tickets in advance might be a problem. I certainly don't want to risk showing up in Blackpool and not being able to get in!

Given their steadfast boycott and the large capacity you ain't going to have a problem getting in! Home crowd average 2600, average away following 750 capacity 17,500 = they will be begging you to come in!

If the tickets are available you'll be able to pay on the day from the away ticket office yes.

And if we sell this 1000 is this likely Kristine? Weve got a bus full booked in and no tickets. What are they gonna do when we, and probably others without tickets, turn up? Any ideas plz?

If you are in doubt why can't you go and buy them from GTFC?

I can Cloudy. Just feel less inclined to make the effort when we're going to a stadium that holds 17,000 which normally has 3,000 in attendance for home games.

Its Monday before this match now, and any Exiles which need tickets posting if you are unable to pay on the day need to know sharpish!

jarmo nas hit the nail on the head... I plus 3 in my car alone where going to Cheltenham. Now unsure due to the joke of which the ticket system is being done with it, added to that the feedback on here about how poor we are of late is putting me off... If they say you can pay on the gate no doubt I'll be there for sure though.

Just to confirm there will be no issues with paying on the day for Blackpool so I'll see you all there!

Cheltenham will not change but are on general sale from today.

How many is that we've sold now?

I know it's Blackpool and loads will be making a weekend of it, but for a team with nothing to play for, after Saturday's heavy defeat and with some of the awful performances we've had to put up with lately, our away following never ceases to amaze me.

Can't make Blackpool due to work commitments (sponsoring a footie match)
1200 tickets is amazing and it always seems to be about the day (weekend in black pools case)!
I always seem to miss the good ones and wish I could be there
Should be at Chelteham
Nothing can seem to knock the travelling army and I hope despite current issues the team put in a good performance and the fans get a result their continued fantastic support deserves
Come on Town!!

I don't know how many we've sold. Well over a thousand i think with plenty paying on the day. Looks like there will be in excess of 1500 at least.
