Season ticket letters

Recommended Posts

Your posts are a bit strange and don't add up?? You obviously paid the fiver to remain on the list recently because you wanted a season ticket and you must have been one of the first to get on the waiting list in 1996. I was number 1149 and I joined in Sept 1997... but you only checked the season ticket list "out of curiosity..." Most people we champing at the bit to see where they were on the list when it was announced that 2000 new ST's were being released, but didn't bother checking even though you'd been on the list for nearly 15 years??

 

"Out of curiosity" what did you do? Did you buy the season ticket that was offered to you over the phone? I was under the impression that the first 2000 only had until 19th July to decide, so why would they then ring up one of the first people on the list 2 days after the list is closed for the first 2000??

 

As Brownie said, I hope you are going to complain.

 

I'd obviously missed the memo about the extra 2000 tickets!!!

 

I've been away travelling a lot in the last 2 months with not regular internet access. I can only think they tried to contact me last week when I was still away, they possibly coul'unt get through. Maybe instead of leaving it they decided to try and contact people they could'unt get through too. I only had 2 seating options Paddock or Lower Cent Kop end. 4 seat choices. I've checked my emails and I did not receive any other notification. I also forgot to add before - GET IN!!!!!!!!

Thinking about it it sounds like this happened - Once all the people in the '2000' had been approached those who did not pay up by the 19th tickets would have become available to the next people down the list after ' the original extra 2000'. Instead of contacting these people via email they just decided to start cold calling people next on the list. It was so out of the blue for me it was do you want it yes or no - have to pay now job.

I was on it before then, they offered me a centenary season ticket when it first opened but I turned it down as I wanted to be in the kop and it was easy to get tickets then anyway.

 

Hey, Stump or someone, excuse my ignorance on this... can I ask why season tickets are so hard to get thesedays?

 

In 1989, I stepped off a ferry at Dover, rang the club from a phone box, a woman at the ground answered the phone immediately, I sent her a money order for 60-odd quid and had a Kop Season Ticket within the week.

 

They cost thousands of pounds now and yet the waiting list from what I can ascertain is about 15 years.

 

The ground capacity is about the same. What's changed? Surely we were just as, if not more popular twenty years ago?

 

And if these waiting lists are anything to go by, there would be enough demand to fill a 60/70k stadium every game, wouldn't there?

We understand that supporters are keen to know what is happening and when we will be issuing further Season Tickets from the new allocation.

 

The club is currently working through the initial applications received to ensure that every transaction is processed correctly.

 

However, we have become aware that a number of supporters have not received their initial offer communication. As a result, we are in the process of writing to supporters again and ask that anyone currently in the top 700 on the waiting list who has not already received their offer contact the club as a matter of urgency on 0843 170 5000 on Monday between 8.15am and 5.30pm.

 

Please be advised that supporters can check their position on the waiting list here.

 

Further announcements will be made in due course.

 

We appreciate the patience of supporters during this process and will make further announcements in due course.

I'll have a crack at this. I used to be able to line up outside the kop at 11.30am/12pm and pay on the gate, there were often lock outs but if I got there by then I'd nearly always get in.

 

When you got your season ticket it was end of season 1988/89, ignoring the obvious event of that year people didn't have the disposable income they do now, especially in Liverpool, football was at a low point as far as general popularity goes, the treatment of fans, the actions of fans etc so the whole thing wasn't conducive to 'family entertainment' like it is now.

 

So in my opinion it's harder now because you can't pay on the gate day of game, larger disposable incomes, it's a safer environment and you can pay for future game tickets without having to run down to the ticket office. This brings in people from much further areas who can have guaranteed tickets months in advance and plan accordingly.

 

Does this mean we can fill 70k every game? I don't think so and I think I've covered that in the stadium thread.

Hardly surprising though is it

 

I am surprised if I'm honest. It was hardly a "major" project, that was done with sorting out the ST waiting list.

 

They have a list of people in order of joining the waiting list, they have 2000 season tickets... How hard could that have been.. Looks like all their time and effort went into making sure that the "half season tickets" till December went without any hitches...

 

So it's as you were, the Ticket Office in a mess once again... (and this comes from someone who got a ST). It really is a joke.

I only applied for my ST a few years ago by sending a letter into the club. I didnt get any letter in return but when i check tickets i have bought through my Members card online it has me down as being added to the ST waiting list.

I have since took screen shots just incase that disapers. anyway this year i am not going to renew my Members Card so will i stay on the list or be removed or am i even on the list.

 

Any advice guys Cheers

Sounds to me as though you're on the list but are not in the first 25,000 which is being cleaned up as we speak. Once the club have got through this stage, they said they will contact the rest of the list to see if they want to stay on it so i'd expect a letter in a few months time.

 

Have a look on the website, it explains everything on there.

I dont see how they've fucked it up.

 

Its well better than how it used to be, fuck me they've sorted it this far havent they!

 

So if you were one of the first 2000 and they didn't contact you and then gave you 1 day to stump up 800 notes when everyone else got 2 weeks to sort it out, you wouldn't be pissed off?

Where does it tell you that you've been added to the Waiting List mate? I'm in a similar situation, joined the list (although I got a letter of confirmation) after 2004 but haven't seen anything online when I've bought my tickets with my membership.

Its on my Purchase History mate. it was only 2009 so must be a recent thing. I have no hope of getting one anytime soon but I though in many years to come then maybe.

Just been reading a thread over on the official site's forum and this whole thing is an absolute disgrace on behalf of the club.

 

They had a great chance to do things correctly but have totally fucked it up, surprise, surprise.

    • I want the prospective titles. One's in the bag. Another one took a hit in Madrid a few hours back, and is in the balance. These things - and even the FA Cup - are in our hands, not a tribunal's.
    • They didn't retrospectively award the win to the second place finisher in the Tour de France after stripping Armstrong.  So in that case you do want us to claim the trophies?   Melbourne Storm were stripped of two Rugby League titles down here for breaching the salary cap and dodgily paying players through third parties.  Pretty similar to City, although much lower figures.  I don't think the runners up were then awarded the trophy. 
    • Andy Robertson has lit the fuse for what should be an explosive second leg of the Champions League last 16 clash with Atletico Madrid in three weeks time.

      A scrappy goal to Saul Niguez in the fourth minute was symbolic of the contest and that suited Atletico to a tee as they were able to slow the pace considerably which naturally frustrated the visitors who failed to register a shot on target throughout the ninety minutes.

      There is little doubt Jürgen Klopp would have told his players beforehand not to fall for their playacting and dubious antics, but it is easier said than done in the heat of the battle.

      Sadio Mane was taken off at half time for risk of getting a second yellow card while Klopp himself got booked on the touchline.

      The straight talking left-back left nobody in any illusions of what he thought of the,home teams’ antics after the game in which Liverpool fell to just their third defeat of the season.

      The Mirror reported Robertson as saying:

      “The corner just ricocheted, it was tight but onside.   "We gave them the best possible start and that get the fans behind them and then they start falling over and getting under the skin a bit.

      “We put in a decent performance and we know we can be better. We've got a second leg to put it right."  

      Robertson also picked up on the reactions of the Atletico players after the game and gave them a little word of warning.

      “They celebrated as if they won the tie after the game. 

      “They are coming to Anfield and we know our fans will be there."

      Klopp was absolutely furious with the lack of protection that the Senegal star got on the evening.

      “He [Sadio Mane] was targeted. It was clear. They wanted to make sure he got a yellow card.

      “It is only half time but you need to be really strong as a referee in this atmosphere. 

      “We speak about Anfield and the power a stadium can have, and tonight we saw it. 

      “They got a result, the stadium wasn't here to see sensational football, they got the result and so they are happy.

      “Already in the first 30 minutes three of their players went to the ground I don't know what for. Nobody to blame.

      “I am fine, 1-0 down at half time we have the longest half time break and we will use that. 

      “Welcome to Anfield. It is not over yet."

    • Oblak gifted us a goal - Mo's touch let him down.   He will be disappointed when he looks back on that.
    • Also, sides with quality in Europe have been able to nullify us pretty easily by playing a flat 4-4-2. Becoming a bit of a trend. 2 goals in 5 matches against Napoli and Atletico, and especially tonight we couldn't make a dent.    Something needs to be done about that but I have no doubt the home game will be different.
