Advance tickets just came on sale.

Cheapest combination from London:
09:48 London King's Cross - Hull 12:18
or
11:48 London King's Cross - Hull 14:18

18:36 Hull - London King's Cross 21:10

Standard class: 25
First class: 75

Operated by Hull Trains - www.hulltrains.co.uk

Railcard discounts possible.

It is possible to pay on the day to upgrade to First, 20 each way. In my opinion, Hull are the best train operators in the country despite being owned by FirstGroup.

The fixture is NOT confirmed yet, however I reckon Man City v Leicester, Liverpool v West Ham will both be moved for tele considering that two games (Man Utd v Spurs and Southampton v Boro) have already been moved for Europa League reasons. At these prices, it may be worth the risk.

That day's fixtures:

Swansea City vs Sunderland
Burnley FC vs Bournemouth
Liverpool vs West Ham
Chelsea vs West Brom
Leicester City vs Man. City
Arsenal vs Stoke City
Watford vs Everton
Hull City vs Crystal Palace

Sunday, 11 December
Southampton vs Middlesbrough
Man United vs Tottenham

Majority of those are more appealing than Hull vs Palace for TV. 16.50 to get there and back with a railcard with standard class, seems like worth taking the hit if it does get changed.

Hull looks a complete eye sore at the moment (cue comments). The whole city centre has been dug up for new paving !

However, there has been an influx of new real ale pubs in the old town (as well as tried and tested favourites) which makes for a great couple of hours beforehand / after.

At least they are being consistent with the way in which they are putting the priority on tickets, even if it is a bit of a joke.

2,000 points first phase, then season ticket holders with no minimum points (so 500 really) and then all members. And again, one ticket per reference.

a) Do the club really expect this to sell out?
b) Should members / season ticket holders with high points (but yet to reach 2k) really get as much priority as someone on their first season?

And yes, I realise that (a) sort of negates (b), but there will be games where we do sell out in the first two phases!

That's a rip off.

The real scandal about Hull ticket prices is that the away price cap was supposed to be the MOST that an away fan would pay.

At Hull they seem to think that 30 is the price that ALL (adult) away fans will pay, every game, regardless of what home fans in the same part of the ground pay.

Hull v Palace is a Category B fixture.

The (adult) ticket prices for Hull fans are:-

Zone 1 - 18
Zone 2 - 21
Zone 3 - 27
Zone 4 - 30

So, you'd think that the away seats being 30 must mean they are on a par with the best Hull seats in the ground - halfway line upper tier?

No, away fans are by the corner flag, for which the equivalent home fans would be paying 'Zone 1' price - 18 for an adult.

I said all along that clubs would abuse this and it is no surprise that some are. Premier League should be asking Hull how they justify this price for Palace fans. Is it because we come from London and "they all earn more money down there" because that's what it looks like

Hull have an upcoming home game against WBA. Their home ticket prices are really to be commended. It is classed as a Category C game, meaning Hull adult fans can pay as little as 9 for a seat.

The price categories for Hull v WBA are:

Zone 1 - 9
Zone 2 - 15
Zone 3 - 21
Zone 4 - 27

WBA fans are in the corner blocks, equivalent to where Hull adult fans would pay 9

Their prices? You guessed it (from the WBA website):
The Baggies have been handed an allocation of 2,500 for the clash at the KCOM Stadium where seats are priced at 30 adults and 24 seniors (over-65s) & juniors (under-18s).

They are completely and utterly taking the piss out of away fans, the very opposite of what the new rule was aiming to achieve

24 for a kid s equivalent to what Man City and Chelsea have been charging for kids for the last couple of seasons. But come on, this isn't Man City or Chelsea, it is Hull, and their equivalent seat is less for an adult.

Across a season if you go every away game, then yes you will save, some big savings at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford for adults, however what Hull have done is bonkers. It's what some foreign FA's do to England fans at games - Belarus fans pay a quid, and England fans in the away section pay 40 sort of thing.

I guess that rule went out of the window when the 30 cap came in, on the basis that away fans benefitting from a 30 cap would usually be paying less than the equivalent home fans in the same stand.

I don't suppose they could have forseen a situation where an away fan paying 30 would be paying more than home fans in the same stand - it is pretty unusual.

I don't charge them anything.. Don't confuse disagreeing with their ticket pricing as agreeing with Palace's. Equally they aren't charging us the same. The kids tickets are more expensive than the price they will pay at selhurst.

To start charging some people more than you used to because you had to reduce some isn't in keeping with the spirit of the thing. Especially when you consider how small a part of a premier league teams income this revenue is.

One thing I would say, not defending Hull or other clubs though...

When a club sells a ticket, they are effectively selling entry to their grounds and a seat space so you can watch the game. It doesn't actually make any difference to them whether the person who has the ticket is 10, 50 or 100 really. Yet they most clubs offer discounts to children and OAPs.

A club could come along one day and argue that they don't need/want to offer discounts to kids or old folks at all, and charge a single blanket price to everyone. How would people feel about that?

I think this has been tried before. Can you get kids prices in all areas of say the emirates (not just the family section)? I know the ground guide says Tottenham don't have discounts in all areas.

I agree with you it could easily happen following that logic. I think it would be very poor form, especially for clubs that rely on parents taking kids to keep the tradition and support of the club going. My son has had some tickets for great value. However without me taking him at an affordable price now. There is no way he would be a palace fan. Just because you can charge a certain price for a seat doesn't mean you always should for the good of the game.

Also how many parents would not realistically be able to go so regularly if they couldn't afford to take the kids. I know my mrs would have a sense of humour failure if i didn't take the boys to footy with me and just upped and left most saturdays and left her with the kids. There are clubs that can probably afford not to care about this kind of thing but the likes of palace don't fit into that category.

If Palace didn't do the cheaper kids st's then I'd give up. On top of travel down and food I would be priced out.

I think this has been tried before. Can you get kids prices in all areas of say the emirates (not just the family section)? I know the ground guide says Tottenham don't have discounts in all areas.

I agree with you it could easily happen following that logic. I think it would be very poor form, especially for clubs that rely on parents taking kids to keep the tradition and support of the club going. My son has had some tickets for great value. However without me taking him at an affordable price now. There is no way he would be a palace fan.

Scro is right here. Have a look at The neutals guide to CPFC written recently
https://sports.vice.com/en_uk/article/the-neutrals-guide-to-falling-in-love-with-crystal-palace

Out of 7 Palace fans randomly stopped outside the ground, 5 had been introduced by their Dads. Maybe clubs like Liverpool will always have a queue of foreign tourists but at Palace it feels like you don't choose, you are chosen.

Agree. I still find it annoying that we don't give something like 200 tickets to local schools for each game. Let's say that the club take an average of 25 a ticket, that's 5k lost income per game but you would only need a few of those 200 kids to turn into 'hardcore' supporters and you would easily make your money back (and more) in time.

Plus there's the good PR and stuff.

It's a long-term investment and you can never be sure of the exact returns but I don't see why we don't try it.

The alternative my son had was to buy the two required at full price and then email the box office for a refund for the difference between full price and student price.

No I know it shouldn't be necessary, but the ticketing system seems to be old, clunky and not a priority for upgrade.

Don't park in the car park next to the ground (Walton Street) takes ages to get out of and then another half hour to get out onto the A63 from experience we now park in City centre and walk.

ebyeeckeagle

Also just used the car park in the centre, wasn't convinced about street parking by the Infirmary! This is from a football ground guide......

Car park: Council ones on Freetown Way or NCP on Pryme Street.

On street: The housing estate directly opposite the Hull Royal Infirmary offers free on street parking spaces. This estate has no parking regulations. Leave the A63 at the Humber Bridge Roundabout and take the first exit into Boothferry Road. Pass Boothferry Park and forward onto Anlaby Road towards the Hull Royal Infirmary, You will pass the KC stadium on your left. Go over the flyover, and turn right at "The Eagle" pub into Coltman St then take the 2nd right into Cholmley St then 4th right into the Boulevard. There are many side streets without parking restrictions. To get to the ground simply walk to the top of the Boulevard and go up the pedestrian walkway to the stadium. To Get home simply go the other way down the Boulevard, then left into Hessle Rd, after 1/4 mile you'll come to a roundabout which takes you onto the A63 (Clive Sullivan Way) and M62.

All I can say is that you will have plenty of room to find a better seat if you don't like your view. I doubt we'll have 1,000 in an away end of 3k.

We seem to be copying Hull's previous run of games. They went DLLLLLLW followed by a Loss then a Draw. We have copied this so it looks as though we will lose to Hull and then draw with Man U.

Similar to Swansea in a way mate. The crowd were well on their backs until we gifted them that daft free kick. My tickets came today, just waiting on coach tickets. Woman at box office said the allocation was selling really well.

06-12-2016, 07:37 PM
Yep use club car park, not Sainsburys which has a 3 hour time limit when Palace haven't got a home game. Stewards will direct you which spaces to park in so you don't block the coaches in

EddieEdwards
06-12-2016, 09:30 PM
Also note that the club car park has limited space and they can't use all of it because they have to allow space for the coaches themselves to park for boarding. With the free coach travel offer there could be quite a lot of fans using the coaches so it's best to arrive a bit early just to make sure you get a space in the car park.
