Have a feeling the delay might be linked to the New stand and ground improvements .
Possibly long-term season tickets to help finance the project .

Yes not sure when a planning decision will be made on the New Stand thought i heard it was April?

Wonder what the offer will be for a long term season ticket?

The stand, assuming it is permitted will take at least 2 years to build so really cannot see the club offering any sort of tickets for it now.

People might want to start thinking ahead if they are s/t holders in the front few rows of the Whitehorse Lane End though (if you believe the club will be going ahead and chopping the front rows off that end at some point)

How long before Wembley and the Emirates stadiums opened did the owners start to sell the seats ?

You'd surely at least wait until it gets permission! The families in the (to be) demolished houses also need to be totally sorted out and looked after before anything can commence.

Usually about 1 year before opening would be considered normal.

I agree Dorking, I anticipate seats not being sold until the season before the new one opens.

They’ll need an exact seating plan, with details of the corporate ones known before they discuss with us non-corps.

I’d then expect them to work their way through a priority list. For example, start with those already holding STs in the Main Stand to agree equivalent seats. Then maybe give any Whitehorse ST holder who loses their seat the opportunity for a new Main Stand one (if they want it). Then maybe any other ST holders who might want to change to the new stand. Then open sales.

Separate to this, they’ll be selling the new boxes and Corp seats, though keeping a percentage back for single match use and matchday packages.

SJ also mentioned about possibility of selling 10 year ones (at the December press launch). I would imagine that if that does go ahead, those purchasers would expect to be fairly high in the pecking order.

Whatever process and priority order they choose to implement, they will come under some criticism!

When West Ham moved from Upton Park to the London Stadium, they only allowed those who already held aisle seats (at the old ground) to be able to choose aisle seats at the new one for example!!!

It is all of course idle speculation, but you do wonder at the new pricing structure - for example, those in the 'next to centre' blocks in the current Main Stand (known as Stephenson blocks), may find that the centre 3 blocks in the new Main Stand are not 'General Admission' seats anymore, but Premium seats. And to get fairly central seats in the new Main Stand at the same price, they may have to move to the new top tier?

Regarding the Whitehorse Lane Stand, if I was a season ticket holder in the front 690 seats (front 6 rows?), then every renewal from now on I would be looking to move backwards to any 'unrenewed' - to at least row 7. It would help massively in this regard if the club did not allow any 'new' season tickets to be sold in the WHL, but only allow renewals from existing seat holders, so that with the natural drop off of renewals, (usually 10% of all season tickets are not renewed each season), then each year a couple of hundred seats would become vacant, meaning over the next 3 years the vast majority of "front 6 row" renewals could be relocated further back in vacant seats.

Of course relegation could massively free up some space!

As I understand it the Arthur is last on the list for redevelopment,so it'll be a good few years before I need to worry about being re-seated!

The whitehorse will look pretty tinpot (more so) with just 10/11 rows. I do wonder if they will bother doing that.

I don't know how closely you have been following the Selhurst Park redevelopment thread, but one of the drawings seems to have let the cat out of the bag in that it suggests an upper tier, with stairwells where the prefab Whitehorse end Exec boxes currently are.

The design and access statement submitted with the current planning application already states that the back row on each balcony (both levels) suffer from restricted views due to viewing angles of the near touchline (Whitehorse goal line), so moving the touchline a few metres nearer to the supermarket is going to make those boxes pretty much redundant IMO, and ripe for replacement with a modest (but steep) seating tier.

There is already the exit in place along Whitehorse Lane, behind the club shop, so the basics are already in place.

Interesting, that makes sense. I have been looking at some of the drawings but obviously not that closely!

Personally i will be looking to move by that time and get as close to halfway and as close to the back of the first tier of the main stand as possible. I have previously never considered the price or availability worth the hassle of a move up until now but the kids will be older and the hassle of getting our 6/7 season tickets together will presumably be easier with so many extra seats.

For me personally the new stand is really exciting and pretty well timed!
