Was thinking that. Why have the club reduced all the tiers? Not to sound bitter but I've worked hard to amass my 4100 points and now it feels like I'm not being rewarded for it. Eddie- do you have any ideas?

The phases are exactly the same as for Boro, Southampton, Sunderland and Everton. For those games, it was completely unnecessary to have any phasing at all, whereas for this one they should perhaps have been a bit more careful. Difficult to predict exactly how it'll work out but a lot of people have probably been waiting for this one following two games in the north east and one in the north west on a Friday night. If, for example, this sells out in phase 2 on Wednesday, then clearly there should have been more phases. Equally, if it doesn't, then you'd have to say that the box office got it right and didn't over-complicate it. Time will tell I guess.

Indeed - we will see how it goes.

I have spent time (and money) getting my points total to its rather modest level, but it appears, if the club follows the current pattern for all games, buying a gold membership doesn't have the perk of the points, as the 200 or however many we got don't really matter in the scheme of things, as it's 2k or nothing (or rather, behind s/t holders who may have far less points).

As it happens, I can't attend this match anyway, but thought it was enough games in to see a pattern emerging. Just hoping Burnley is okay!

I could be completely wrong but the fact we're in the corner may mean that numbers are skipped out on the rows lower down?

Although it is our online system so it's probably messed up.

Got a first class deal for Sunderland and Everton as well... Everton on the Friday will be worth it as well get proper service etc...

And was again approx 10 quid more for pair of us

Agreed. We normally book as soon as fixtures are free of TV interference. Late call on this one.

BUT......I just went through the East Midlands site directly and managed to get 3x adult returns for 73!! Bit late out, at 1215, but 1932 back so at least we can get to a few of the famous Leicester pubs afterwards.

No idea why this groupsave deal came up as it wasn't advertised anywhere, but I'll take it! :lux:

2 of us are always phase 1 , my daughter usually 2, my mates son is a newish season ticket holder so is usually last phase .we could use other friends references to get all of them in phase 1 or 2 but we want my mates boy to use his ref, so as to get his points total up!
We now always wait till we are all eligible , there really is no need to sit separately. Exceptions , probably Bournemouth and maybe Chelsea as its 30 this year and a lot were put off by the 55 price last few years,think it sold out 2 days before the game .....

Has nothing to do with the points system. If all the individuals are linked you can buy tickets together. If they are not then buy them through the box office rather than on line.
This points system may need the odd bit of tinkering but its nothing that cant be sorted by either linking your customer references or making a phone call.

Mr Bo Jangles

I think the point Radders was making is that providing you link your online account to other fans (who aren't going) you can buy earlier using their references. The only problem with that is the people you are buying for won't get the points. Not sure in this case it should be a problem for anyone as the purchasing tier we are now in allows for extra tickets to be purchased by ST holders and members.hopefully sell out next week.

cant agree with this. for the key games a points system is fair, although points should be for actually attending games rather than buying pies, ale, and club shop merchandise. 3000 parish points for boro, sunderland, everton on a fri night, burnley, soton in the cup and this game is stupid and prevents groups and families from buying together. people also like to book their travel and accommodation in advance before it gets too pricey. also the BO wont hand over your match tickets but insist on posting them.

That's correct. If you want to buy tickets for people in different categories, you have to wait for the last of the categories if you want to buy them all together.

I refuse to believe that ticketing technology does not exist whereby tickets can be reserved for those in higher points brackets who would like to sit with those in lower brackets, under which it will default to those that have reserved in the event that all tickets are sold out.

West Ham run a scheme (or at least used to), where everybody applied simultaneously. Those with highest points would be guaranteed a ticket. If they wanted to sit with mates on lower thresholds, the system would work it's way through and sift out to the lowest possible denominator.

Sorted.

Not sure what your point is here mate to be honest?

2k points first phase for this so that should make it easier not harder for people with average points tallies to book together. If you have less points than that and have to wait until the next phase I'm not sure thats too unfair.
As far as I know the games you mention were not 3000 'parish points' first phase they were 2000. And season ticke holders second phase. This to me is a lot less exclusive if you like than last season and opens it up a lot more for people to go. This should almost help you book your rail ticket in advance knowing there is a better chance of securing a ticket. Unless of course you dont have any loyalty points or season ticket in which case its probably fair to allow those that do in front of you.

As for your other points, I dont think how the points are awarded has anything to do with it selling (though I agree as most do on how they should be earned) and I am not aware that the box office wont let you collect them. though I have never had a problem personally with recieving themthrough the post.

EddieEdwards
03-10-2016, 10:36 AM
I am not aware that the box office wont let you collect them.The box office will no longer sell away match tickets over the counter. You can go in there and pay for them but they will then send them by post. As I understand it, this is because the box office now has open counters and so they have decided that they need to store the away tickets in another part of the stadium for security reasons. There are various reasons why fans might prefer to buy tickets over the counter rather than have them sent by post and to take away that option, which has always been available, is very poor whatever their reasoning behind it is.

Why bother using the points system for games that take a while to sell out? Just have them on general sale to season ticket holders and members from the off (equally i wouldn't have thought there is much of a problem waiting to a later phase to sit together, I did for this game).

EddieEdwards
03-10-2016, 01:00 PM
I don't blame the club for using loyalty points and phases for this game as demand was likely to be significantly higher than for Boro, Southampton, Sunderland or Everton. However, now that it's been on sale at 2 per member for over a week and still hasn't sold out, there seems no reason not to allow general sale or at least additional guest tickets.

Really....that's just nuts!

Talk about not looking at your customer service from the point of view of the customer.

On many occasions over the years, especially when timing was tight, one of our group has popped over to Selhurst, bought for us and then distributed the tickets. I've often sent a cheery text from the car park to my mates, who then press on with their travel plans etc, knowing I have the tickets and all is well.

We're still waiting to receive some Palace cup tickets from about 10 years ago that never arrived in the post. And I know people who haven't received season tickets and had to organise more....these things happen, and not necessarily the club's fault.

I bet I'm not the only fan who would double up a visit to the Box Office with a stroll round the shop, thus adding to the sales in there.

Just picking up this portion of your reply (and ignoring the middle sentence).

Season ticket holders being phase 2, irrelevant of points, seems a slightly odd way of structuring the sales - as it means that a member with a (potentially) far higher number of points (just under the 2k threshold) would be behind a first-time season ticket holder in the booking priority list.

IMO, either you implement points, and use them as your deciding factor (i.e. 2k first phase, 1k second, then no restrictions), , or open it up to all season ticket holders first, members second. The halfway house that is in place now makes it harder for all concerned.

When l asked why l coudnt have the tickets, he stated that it was "in case the premier league/sky changed the kick off.

I smelt BS but let it slide. The tickets turned up in the post the next day?!? If this is the new policy, why not state it on the website? (or l have missed it?)

That is BS; they wouldn't be on sale if there was a chance to date/time would change.

Seriously I do wonder about the box office and its staff; in the past, Mandy would sort out things. Now, some staff seem to make it up as they go along. :grrr:

Haven't been away yet this season. Don't want tickets posted to me. Trust Palace (really), don't trust the Royal Mail...

So you genuinely haven't been to an away game this season because the club only post tickets?

The box office will no longer sell away match tickets over the counter. You can go in there and pay for them but they will then send them by post. As I understand it, this is because the box office now has open counters and so they have decided that they need to store the away tickets in another part of the stadium for security reasons. There are various reasons why fans might prefer to buy tickets over the counter rather than have them sent by post and to take away that option, which has always been available, is very poor whatever their reasoning behind it is.

This security excuse doesn't make sense does it.

If the open counters are such a risk, then they shouldn't have done them.

Alternatively, mitigate the perceived risk by keeping the tickets secure overnight and bring them through to the box office in small batches during opening hours, so you serve the customer who is standing in front of you.

If you arrive to buy tickets for our home matches, do they post those instead as well?

The security aspect is funny. I am pretty sure the staff would have handed over the tickets to anyone stupid enough to try and hold up the box office regardless of a lame piece of glass. As if the tickets are worth anything in this day and age once they have all been cancelled anyway. Surely a locked draw would be enough to put off the opportunist south london oik.

FWIW i think the box office are generally ok. They are helpful and offer some decent customer service. Of course sometimes things go wrong but they are generally pretty decent. I do think they would be better off telling you they don't know something rather than making something up though.

Not sure what your point is here mate to be honest?

2k points first phase for this so that should make it easier not harder for people with average points tallies to book together. If you have less points than that and have to wait until the next phase I'm not sure thats too unfair.
As far as I know the games you mention were not 3000 'parish points' first phase they were 2000. And season ticke holders second phase. This to me is a lot less exclusive if you like than last season and opens it up a lot more for people to go. This should almost help you book your rail ticket in advance knowing there is a better chance of securing a ticket. Unless of course you dont have any loyalty points or season ticket in which case its probably fair to allow those that do in front of you.

As for your other points, I dont think how the points are awarded has anything to do with it selling (though I agree as most do on how they should be earned) and I am not aware that the box office wont let you collect them. though I have never had a problem personally with recieving themthrough the post.


All these points are fair and perfectly valid apart from when it comes to games with zero chance of selling out. It just makes no sense.

A group of us were potentially going to Everton. Was going to be a mix of season ticket holders and mostly non members. 11 days later it went on to sale non members (all had booking histories - myself over 3000 points.) by which point the train prices nearly doubled and people made other plans etc. We ended up not going. Yet we had over 1000 empty seats.

Just allow anyone to buy for those types of games (same restrictions were on for boro and sunderland would you believe!). And keep the points system for London and other in demand games.

No, it's not comical, it's just plain incorrect.

Two days before the game, tickets will be taken off sale and will disappear from the tickets website without putting any information on the main website saying if any remaining tickets will be available at the ground.

Any remaining tickets will then arrive with whichever is the last coach to arrive, so requiring a large queue and one/two hapless people selling tickets and trying to find the required spaces, regardless of the fact that it wont sell out and it will be (largely) sit/stand where you like.

... and breath out. :confused:

I think we should pause before taking it from a box office staff member that security is the reason it has been introduced, unless anyone has this confirmed (Eddie?), given the random stuff some box office staff seem to come out with (and evidenced on this thread).

Whatever the given reason, the club has increased its costs for over the counter purchases (double handling of staff taking the booking, staff putting the tickets in envelopes, envelope cost, cost of stamp), plus increased the complexity of the process, by adding in additional stages and increasing the possibility that errors could occur (wrong tickets sent, letter and tickets not arriving in time), let alone the fact that people may want to distribute tickets before the day.

04-10-2016, 11:58 AM
Just picking up this portion of your reply (and ignoring the middle sentence).

Season ticket holders being phase 2, irrelevant of points, seems a slightly odd way of structuring the sales - as it means that a member with a (potentially) far higher number of points (just under the 2k threshold) would be behind a first-time season ticket holder in the booking priority list.

IMO, either you implement points, and use them as your deciding factor (i.e. 2k first phase, 1k second, then no restrictions), , or open it up to all season ticket holders first, members second. The halfway house that is in place now makes it harder for all concerned.

Whilst I accept and dont disagree, I suspect that someone being just under 2k who is not a season ticket holder therefore being trumped by a first time holder would be pretty rare (if you are talking about the latter purchasing so the former cant!) But you could fairly argue just one instance is enough I guess.

It seems others have been given different reasons so I suppose it could be argued that we don't really know what to believe, but "we can't give the tickets to you now in case the kick off is changed" makes no sense at all and is clearly just a BS excuse that they've been told to give. If this was a genuine reason for not issuing tickets, then they wouldn't be able to send them out in the post either.

Good trolling, however you know as well as I that it is games like the first league match at Bournemouth for a generation (last season), getting one of the 200 seats at Dover, or to able to get a Cat 1 seat for the FA Cup Final, where is makes a difference to those who care the most.

80% of Palace fans probably don't care about loyalty points, as was evidenced by some people having to ask where to find their client ref and how to check their points when Watford Semi-Final tickets went on sale, doesn't mean discussing a fair system isn't relevant.

A small number of people bought a needless gold membership on top of their season ticket to get the extra 500 points that then qualified them for a Bournemouth away ticket last season, effectively paying Parish to jump the queue. Points should only be earned from tickets, end of.

Well there have been games in the past 18 months that people have effectively "bought" points to jump the queue.

That's a totally different argument to relaxing the points system for games like this so to allow people in different brackets to get seats together and encourage more to buy.

A couple of people from memory said they did for Bournemouth but there was no proof in that or do I recall any other games being mentioned. However, I'm not saying its an impossibility.

What I am saying to Mr 6000 and hes missing is simply that when the points system was put into place, people who were regular travellers said they would miss out by people bulk buying gnomes. Yet now, a popular away fixture which in the last few years sells early is now going to general sale.
For me, it has nothing to do with the points system (as in my response to laggin) but simply that its been done by most for the last few years and some will give it a miss this year and do somewhere else instead. We dont always have to find a point of blame for us not selling out a game like this.

And just to re-iterate, I dont think 'loyalty' points should be awarded for anything apart from attending games.

Perhaps, perhaps not. If I am I will say I'm wrong.

But realistically, when a game like this which, has been one of the fastest selling aways in the last few years goes to general sale, it may just be a sign that things have peaked. The regulars life yourself and Dorking will still go and keep your points total going upwards. The semi regular away travellers like myself will still have a season ticket, go a fair amount of aways and keep the points total going upwards. So for some JCL to come in for a game that might be tight and want to bulk buy to overtake, thats a lot of f**king gnomes!

Or you could create an account in the name of the child (assuming he doesn't already have one) and then either buy directly from that account or add it to the family and friends section of your own account and buy from there. The system will then know that the ticket is for a child and should allow you to buy at the correct price.

It's slight hassle because i have often in the past bought my son an adult ticket for games when I am not sure of his football fixtures (just in case he has a game and i want to take someone else). You used to be able to change the drop down but i don't think you can anymore.

Sales have stopped but that doesn't mean we sold the whole allocation.

Sales haven't stopped - there are a limited number still available. They seem to be adding them to the website a few at a time. Possibly it's just the unused player comps etc. that are still remaining.

I wonder if it might be a bit flat by comparison.. Both clubs are less exciting by just being in the prem. The game last year we were both flying. I can see it being the least noisy trip we have had since leicester came up. Saying that i can see it being the best game we have had up there. Both sides can afford to play with a bit more freedom than usual and try and win the game.

It said sold out this morning on the site.

I guess if people have left it this late then it's best to call the box office.

Hearing of at least 5/6 fans who never received their tickets from the box office for today's game. It's happening game after game

I was one, went to the Leicester box office and the ticket I got from them didn't even bloody work!!!! Thankfully the Leicester steward let me in anyway, palace would have probably just sent me back to the ticket office!

This was also after having my train ticket fail at every barrier from Thornton Heath to Leicester :grrr: then we had the audacity to lose!

Thinking of writing to the Croydon Advertiser about it, might make the front page.

Did a quick search, and I didn't see one ticket related complaint from the Mark Goldberg era.

I think we all know what needs to, no SHOULD, happen here. Do the right thing Steve and Co.

My ticket came by post but it didn't work either. The Leicester stewards acted as if this was a reasonably common occurrence. Not sure this is the fault of the Palace box office.

Yeah, I highly doubt it was the fault of the Palace box office, the same thing happened to me last year at Spurs away in the FA cup last season and for the semi final, both times I had to go to the ticket office for a replacement ticket that worked. (Missed Bolasie's goal though :wallbash:)

I did think the atmosphere from the Leicester fans was nothing like as good as previous visits. We were decent up until the first goal and that just sucked the life out of our support.

As you walk past the rugby ground you realise that there are two grounds close together and only one has any character. I have now been to Leicester 4 times and Southampton at least 6-8 times. Both turn me off to such an extent i pity the locals whose season tickets are at these dull stadiums. There is literally nothing about them that i feel envious of. Neither of them are particularly conveniently located. Both are soulless and in the case of Leicester most of the seats are too far from the action. What exactly are you getting that is so fantastic? A bit more room to drink your pint of Singha in? The concourses are still cold, damp feeling dark miserable affairs.. so in summary. I am glad we didn't get the move to Crystal Palace park. I am sure we weren't about to reinvent the wheel had we done so.
