With tickets now on general sale, I've just done a quick tally of current available seats

Pontoon = 44

Lower = 16

Upper = 36

Main = 335

I'm not sure if Northampton are getting the full allocation, or just the 1,200 which had been mentioned recently

1,200 is the new maximum allocation.

So what impact does that have on availability of seats for home fans, either in the cage or the Osmond?

Bought 2 in Upper within mins of being available, other than 1 pair on front row, and restricted views they were the only two together available in there. All singles otherwise. Not looking good for us exiles in the future.

I booked 3 seats in the upper that only had one between them, might have to ask the person in the other seat if they wouldn't mind swapping. Going to be a difficult season if you're coming with a friend or two!


Looking forward to a brighter future now Fenty has gone.

Just looked, about 120 left in the main majority back few rows at each end, 3 singles lower findus,  Upper and Pontoon sold out on line, will be a big crowd.

Feels a bit like that GTFC ticket office is struggling a little; people can't get through on phones, Orient ticket sales process not great. I don't think we've sent the away allocation to Northampton yet and I thought part of the Osmond would be opened to home fans for Northampton straight away. We shouldn't get to a point where there are only restricted views available before opening it and also instigating ST buy-back.

I think there is good reason for this though; the close season has been very short for us and coupled with the massive demand increase it would have been very difficult to increase and train staff resources that quickly, and everyone needs and deserves a holiday...

Hopefully this will improve quickly.

I wish they’d just crack on & open the Osmond up from the start. Seems really out of order to me to essentially force people to pay full whack for restricted view seats when there are premium view seats in the Osmond that won’t be available until the last minute. It’s also no good if you want to go in a group of more than 2, given that your basically down to singles everywhere else.

The decision must’ve been made by now to have town fans in there, so let’s just get on with it.

Luckily I’ve got 2 tickets for the Main. But this is immediately showing up the point I was trying to make last week about Debbie/Jason seeming to be in the comfort zone on this issue by saying we have a 9000 capacity.

They should be speaking with each away club weeks in advance and asking do you need 600 or 1200 tickets and then dependent on the answer, making the 600 or 1200 tickets available to Town fans to buy.
