2,093.

Must have cost their club around £25k for the 1,000 tickets they couldn’t sell too.

We’ve sold our 2,010 allocation for Monday night. Shocking allocation really considering what they normally allocate down there. Esp Since it looks like they are nowhere near selling out their own areas.
I expect quite few Rams will have got tickets in the home bit of the Putney Stand somehow.
Can't have sale no return in the play offs and all revenue is split 50% clubs 50% league

Not that it is an away attendance but does anyone have how many QPR fans we’re at Wembley? I know it was the biggest attendance but I cannot see a split anywhere other than 40k.

No excuse for any Championship play off final club not selling out Wembley.
Hull the other year :ffs:
Will never understand our fans giving it billy big bollocks about other clubs not selling out at Wembley. We do purely on the basis that Bristol and the surrounding area has a population of 1m, which is more than enough to attract a shit load of plastics to a one off game.

Going to be a lot of travelling next year, QPR will be travelling 3388 miles this year according to our offy. Who will be travelling furthest? Annoying Fulham went up, that was our big following game. I expect us to be bottom 3 in the table this year, if we are mid table again.

You can't get into any of the stadiums without a fan id or into russia for that matter without one either unless you have a visa which won't process in time. I'm absolutely devastated I ain't there.

I've had a look into that and apparently if you can manage to buy a ticket for any game, they give you a temporary one that you can print off so you can get into Russia. Once you're in Russia you exchange it for a fan ID card.

3 of my mates are out there, they're doing the full tournament and said it's fucking brilliant. I'm hoping of getting out there but not looking likely at the min.

Yes that's right, the website is diabolical to buy them off, always get to a certain stage then get timed out. my dad and a few mates are out there and the usual Preston lads we always meet.

Trying to find cheap options but it’s a needle in a haystack at the moment. Sport Options are belting and I like using them but I can’t justify spending £1,500 for a day trip. Couple of Bolton fans arranged a charter flight in 2012 for the potential tie against Germany should we have seen off Italy. Can’t see it being done this time around looking at the costs being thrown about. Few mates are out there at the moment and they look like they’re having a belting time. Jealous is an understatement.

Our new look away scheme is causing a bit of a stir. The away scheme normally worked like this. You'd pay £25 on top of your season ticket, and away tickets would automatically get sent to you with the money automatically going out of your bank. You had to attend 18/23 away games or you would be removed from the scheme. They have altered it this season. Same price for previous away scheme members to renew, but £40 for new members. This time though they have lifted the restrictions on how many games you have to attend. So if you only want to do Blues and Albion away that's ok, and you get priority over someone who is not in the away scheme, but has done most aways. To be honest after reading how it all works they have made it a lot better, but the biggest flaw, and it's a huge flaw is a supporter can just pick the big away games, and has priority over someone who has done a lot more aways. The club have said they are going to monitor the system and anyone who is only buying tickets for the Blues and Albion will be removed from the scheme. A £1.50 booking fee also applies with each away ticket bought. We had 600-700 away scheme members last season, but this season it's reached its capacity of 1200, and sold out within a week of going on sale. Personally, I think the Blues and Albion game should be scrapped from the away scheme, and just go on how many aways you have been to.

Forest topped 19k season ticket sales, we've topped 15k for the second season running.
Not bad from Forest considering how poor they were last season, I'm surprised we've matched last season's 21,000 as well, was expecting a dip of over 1,000.

I had to smile at this tweet from our first pre-season friendly over in Austria..

44. A flare-up sees the Akhmat coach and backroom staff on the pitch after a late tackle on Gardner. Players from both teams shove and jostle. Akhmat support staff and officials then begin to row with Blues fan in the stands. The players are taken off the pitch 0-1

:lol::lol::lol: Start as you mean to go on!!!
