Just under 1000. Much less popular than Newcastle - which is a shame because it's a more crucial game in my humble opinion.

This post needs repeating , huge huge game. Steve can you not ask TP to appeal to the fans to go to this one ? Sad thing is people are choosing Newcastle more for the weekend imo yet Sunderland a more crucial game is still very accessible to Newcastle for night out afterwards or be based there for weekend.

You can have a great night out in Newcastle after watching football at Sunderland, they are not far apart.

Agree, this was the priority of the 2 games for me, partially because I went to SJP in 2010, but also because this is an absolutely crucial game that needs the boys support. Gonna commute from newcastle too, its only a few miles away.

30 match ticket I can live with 120 train ticket I cannot. Only option left is overnight coach into and out of Newcastle at 30 but that's more than a chore. I'd jump on the palace coach no probs but it's full I'm guessing as not on website.

Palace coaches still have seats available but are not bookable on the web site. You have to contact the box office.

Getting ours today if Keltic Eagle can get past the moths in his wallet ;)

Still a few cheap East coast trains left. Managed to get bubbs an 11.50 each way from edinburgh. This game is massive, and 29 quid, whilst not in the same league as 20 quid for newcastle, is still quite reasonable if you find a cheap train. Hope we get a good turnout and another double.

Yes - smallest away followings have probably been Hull, Villa and Swansea - the only away games where we've picked up points. Everton and Sunderland should be good days out on that basis.

I cannot believe there would not be subsidised coach travel for both the Sunderland & Newcastle game given the two trips to the NE in seven days.

If Newcastle were bottom and sunderland 8th the ticket sales would be identical. Missed a trick in my opinion.

Tomo
10-03-2014, 10:12 PM
Why have they missed a trick? The club make no money from away sales and would cost the club a fair bit of money.

Tomo,

SB said it was a shame we haven't sold as many for Newcastle as Sunderland (a) was more crucial.

This month the club are forcing people to renew their season tickets, with a threat of releasing your seats if you don't. Yet expressing disappointment that for two visits in seven days to the NE, that we aren't taking more.

Not sure whether there is a more polite way of highlighting how it is in the real world - by asking if the club could have done more?

I still stand by my comment that I'm surprised that twice as many people are choosing to go to the Newcastle game than the Sunderland game. The Sunderland game is, in my humble opinion, more important as a point or three for us deprives one of our main rivals of points too. I have never said that I'm disappointed that we aren't taking more supporters on these two trips. In fact the numbers are impressive, it's simply a surprise to me that Newcastle is so much more popular.

Maybe Newcastle offers a more interesting destination, but it's only 10 miles from Newcastle to Sunderland and The Stadium of Light is a 30 minute metro journey from the centre of Newcastle.

Anyway, I'm not telling anyone what to do or which game to see, but from CPFC's point of view I do think that Sunderland is the bigger game.



We did lay on free coaches to Everton as the return journey was impossible by train. But, with return trains to the North East being frequent and fast (from 2 hours 50 mins) and many people making a weekend of it, I'm not sure how popular the incredibly long booze-free coach journey would be. Less than 5% of all fans who are going to the Newcastle game are using the coach. if we subsidised that should we then also subsidise the 95% who are travelling by train, car or plane?


On the subject of season tickets, we have the situation currently that there are many fans who'd like to buy a season ticket for 14/15 now but can't because the most popular areas are sold out. Consequently we are asking (not forcing) people to renew this month rather than wait for the summer - when we may have less interest from new buyers.

We are not asking people to actually pay for their 2014/5 season tickets now because they can use the instalment plan which means that they have 12 equal monthly payments through to 28th February 2015.

What like an affordable monthly payment scheme perhaps?

Thanks.

The interest free monthly payment scheme that we have introduced is something that I'm very proud of as it makes watching Palace possible and more affordable for many of our supporters.

Likewise the free season tickets for under 10's, our increasing juniors to under 18 and the young adults discount, all brought in by CPFC2010. I hope that Eagle Mart appreciates what we have done on these - a lot more than other clubs.

Subsidising those who travel on the coaches is an admirable gesture but it helps a relatively small number of people. In the case of Newcastle away, 100 out of the 2100 who have bought tickets so far.

It is surprising, I can only think its because the ticket for newcastle is 20 quid, whilst sunderland is 29. Certainly think the possibility of getting a point or better at sunderland is greater than getting something from newcastle the following week.

Fair comments on the long booze free journey - I don't like travelling by coach myself. It was bad enough to Villa in the cup a few years back!

I'd rather PM you about the Season Tickets. As too many sycophants pipe up! All constructive - of course.

Oh, and we will sell out Newcastle.... You will owe Jason a pint.

Newcastle tickets are 27 so it can't be just because it's 2 cheaper.

I think it must be because people think Newcastle is a better day/weekend out and perhaps don't realise that Sunderland is so close.

There may be other reasons as well Steve. This season I have seen more away games than I ever have as a Palace supporter but still have to select some to miss.
I managed to get a Newcastle return train ticket for 20 back in January but was reluctant to do the same with Sunderland when the offer was made by East Coast trains as I thought there was a strong possibility that the game would be switched. By the time Sky sorted out their TV schedule the train fares were prohibitively expensive and I don't fancy driving to Sunderland and back in a day. So although I agree with you that this game is more important, reluctantly it will be the one of the few that I will miss.

I was willing to go to one of these but alas can't afford both. My decision was based purely because I've been to Sunderland before but not Newcastle, so new ground for me. (Whilst I have been following Palace home and away for about 40 years I still have plenty to strike off my list! About another 40+ to go)

As we have played Sunderland much more in recent years I expect Newcastle is a new ground for many.

I know I'm a light weight supporter. ;)

Christ know where I got 20 quid from. I would have thought we have a real chance of getting something from sunderland, but much less confident of beating the geordies in their back yard, even minus cabaye.

Anyway, sales are creeping up, should still be enough to be very loud if we try.

I chose Sunderland over Newcastle.

Partly because I don't like the stairs or the view from Newcastle's ground (and I've been there before) and partly because I can't make it on that day :D

Splitting the journey up with 3 of us driving makes it easier than doing the whole journey on my own in one day :)
