Only on sale to season ticket holders, I am 1878 member so might not even be able to get a ticket!



If any season ticket holders who know they can not make it, if you could get a ticket anyway for me, that would be much appreciated! I will pay Obviously Don't mind paying over face value either and I will also owe you a pint!

Think their inept policing of the Wrexham game recently is to blame for this. Can't believe Halifax actually want to chuck so much money away?

This decision is probably gonna cost Halifax at least £20k in gate receipts, probably more. Hope they're as unhappy with West Yorkshire Police's total incompetence as we are.

Seriously, what’s the point of scheduling these ‘local’ festive double headers (which are presumably designed to maximise attendances) if you’re then going to prevent thousands who want to attend from doing so as a direct result? The kick-off has already been moved to 12:30 ffs.

It’s totally counter-intuitive and discriminative of regular, match going fans. If pockets of individuals intend to travel with the intent of causing disorder then deal with them and ban them accordingly - don’t assume I want to neck 16 pints and start windmilling anyone with a Yorkshire accent just because I support Grimsby Town.

One of the reasons I’ve always bought a season ticket, even when things have been really shít, is access to away tickets. 1,200 means that about 60% of season ticket holders will miss out on our closest away game of the season, and our only one within 90 miles. And that’s before we consider anyone else who might legitimately want to go.

This is a grossly unfair, highly prejudiced and ultimately nonsensical decision. Leeds and Manchester United have also have their fair share of banning orders and arrests under their belts. Will West Yorkshire police be restricting United to 1,200 tickets when they play there in February, I wonder? I’d like to see them try.

Honestly, I’ve had enough of this now. I don’t see this routinely happening to other clubs in other divisions, and whilst I obviously haven’t been privy to the conversation between the club and the police, I’d really like to see our representatives do more to challenge this and at the very least seek a detailed explanation and rationale (so we can all see for ourselves what a fair and reasonable decision it is after all).

Sick to the fùcking back teeth of shít like this. Absolute shysters.

Evening guys Halifax fan here. Just thought I'd come on and provide some context as to why this has happened. Which I can assure you has angered everyone at Halifax from the fans to the club who will now miss out on a fair amount of revenue.

Some of you may already be aware but after our Wrexham game last Tuesday night a group of Wrexham fans were set upon by a group of people who I prefer not to call fans which resulting in a 15 year old boy suffering a broken jaw. I'm not sure if he's out of hospital or not. 99% of our fans are disgusted that this happened and we have no issues at the majority of our home games.

I'm not sure these restrictions would have happened if that incident had not occurred. What's baffling to me is we can have as many as we want there but your restricted. I'm not sure who's supposed to be getting punished here us or you cause it feels like you.
