Just been released as a category A game with minimum adult ticket prices of 35! How on Earth is this justifiable? I'm a season ticket holder myself but if I wasn't I certainly wouldn't be happy paying this sort of money. Surely Parish needs to give fans a break and charge category B pricing when the team are playing so badly?

One last hurrah from the club to milk the touts and tourist market. The board should realise that if they want to charge a premium price then they need to provide premium facilities off pitch and a better product on the pitch.

Watford have pony support & won't sell their allocation, so I'm trying to get a ticket in their end at the moment for the bargain price of 30.

Not justifying the Category/price, but I guess the club pricing/stance is fixed very early on, because ST holders have already been charged at the applicable tariff (minus ST discount) from as early as Feb 2016.

Even knocking it back to Category B and offering ST holders the choice of bar/food/ST credit is probably a mare to administer.

Just one of those things, probably would have stomached it coming after a two win bounce... ::delusional little yellow gif thing::

Behave, it's a crunch London derby where the hordes from Surrey clash with their hated rivals from Hertfordshire.

They should call it something catchy like 'the M25 Junction 7 to Junction 20 derby'.

Of course, this also affects our real fans who don't have season tickets, like my dad.

You lot dont know your born, look what you get for just 40:
Really uncomfortable seats that a 5 year child would complain leg room about.
urine soaked shoes if you venture into the plush bathroom facilities.
You can marvel at the feat of engineering, that is the Gantry(already sold to Ninja warrior UK for the next series)
The vast and seasonably price food and drink available.
The ease with which you can enter the state of the art viewing facility.
Free designer wear which will delivered to your seat via a new delivery system trailed at NASA by the non sexually exploited personnel.
A team full of heart , desire, creativity and passion. Lead by a manager at the forefront of new and exciting playing ideals and always happy to let the players express themselves.
All this and more for 40. Bargain.

Can I sell my season ticket seat back to the club and get the full 40 (Upper Holmesdale)?

I have a wedding that I have to attend that day and might as well put that kind of money towards next years ticket.

Maybe wrong but I do not think they operated the buy back scheme this year. In previous years they refunded the season ticket price not full price, which is surely fair.

You'd think. Surely if they're charging fans 10 to get on a ST waiting list then the demand is there for the match v Watford. Or maybe not... :rolleyes:

We were due to be able to do so via Twickets.co.UK - the landing page is set up but it seems nobody has given it the go ahead yet. Oh well should be up and running next season when thousands will have midweek Championship games up for resale!

I'm NOT taking my two kids (aged 7 & 10) to Palace v Watford in March as their 2 tickets would cost a total of 40.

Considering this is one of the most important games since we have been in premier league, there are still a substantial amount of tickets available online. Think the club have found the ceiling as to what people are willing to pay and 40 is above that ceiling.

40 to sit in the AW.

Pure greed from the club.

As a season ticket holder, I'm not always aware of the price for individual matches.

I agree, 40 for Arthur Wait is too much. I'd have said something like 30 at most, and 10 for kids....bearing in mind this is a Prem match.

Mr Bo Jangles
15-03-2017, 10:06 AM
Agree, it is not just the price it is the appalling quality of the facilities which make 40 unacceptable. Think the 27 per match for ST holders and max of 32 + membership costs are about right for non ST holders. Be very sad if we don't sell this out but not looking hopeful ATM.

I have the email receipt printed out and my client ref number / member id card. Guessing I should go to box office before kick off? Bit worried, is this normally ok in people's experience? Can they print out new tickets? Any advice would be good, cheers

Dorking .Eagle
17-03-2017, 07:26 PM
You won't like the answer but some players arrive as early as 1045am

About a quarter of them get dropped off by the tunnel area and dash in there so they don't have to sign autographs

And don't get your hopes up too much for a Benteke autograph, they're as rare as rocking horse poo - I've only seen him stop and sign once all season

For balance all the others that do park in the players parking area do sign unless they arrive 'late' (after 1pm). And Speroni and Zaha are lovely.

I know Jules is lovely but I must admit it surprises me a little with Wilf. Good to know though.

From a personal point of view, I'm hoping to get Joel Ward to sign my newborn's Palace shirt as we named him Joel after looking for inspiration from the Palace squad. :supergrin: You don't happen to know what's like for signing autographs do you?

Well that was disappointing. Got there for 12 and was told the players had gone to the training ground and that it would be better to wait after the game. I hung around until 1:15 hoping to catch the players when they got off the coach but no sign. Had to admit defeat and go get breakfast / lunch then.

TBF, I don't see him post a lot (or like) but worth a go in case he has notifications on. Alternatively, I'm sure a nice email to the club would sort it. Heck, you've named you son after him so would be pretty damn cruel to not do such a simple thing like sign a piece of baby clothing.
