Fancying this one. Didn't expect £25 though.

Thought allocation was only 1000 too so 1500 is decent.

The Championship and League 1 grounds where it was a free for a all despite allocated seating were the days. People way too bothered now.

That feels quite expensive for a cup game. 

£25 for an adult when it was around £10 for Newcastle the round before?

Justified because they will sell the place out, this is a money game for Luton. That's their normal price for matches too.

Do we think these will be the brackets going forward or just a one off on this due to low allocation? 

One off. I think there are probably about 3,000 people on 360+ points which means for all normal allocations, people are guaranteed a ticket in that bracket. Whereas for this one they don't want people to miss out because they didn't log in at 9AM on the Monday.

 

I would expect to only see this again for Bournemouth and small allocations. Unless we are top of the league with a few games to go...

This is where i disagree.

Yes this is undoubtedly a money game for Luton and a chance to sell out the ground. 
But it's also what's wrong with football; a club using any chance to get as much money as possible from fans.


Cup games should be £20 max, twenty is plenty.

Football is business unfortunately. As much as we all want to disagree with where it is going. Smaller clubs regularly charge over £20 for cup games (e.g. Newport).

 

I imagine we would have charged £10-15 (ST/GS) if we were at home but for Luton this is a money spinner and will do the club well. Let's not forget that the money is not as good outside of the PL. Especially for a team like Luton who are only just promoted to the Championship and are in the process of funding a new ground.

 

We can all dream of cheap match ticket prices but I cannot see it happening, so in the grand scheme of things, this is acceptable from Luton.

Terrible idea for this fixture. I can understand when it's a large away end when you're not expecting many to turn up but this will just cause problems.

 

It baffles me how this is deemed safe, as it encourages people to stand in an area that isn't designated for them - yet safe standing is still to be approved.

 

doesn't make sense to me.

It is common in Europe, it's a bit of a problem here because people don't know how to deal with it. What normally happens is that small areas will be overpopulated with people standing, and the rest of the sections will see spare seats.

 

Fully agree that this is probably less safe than old style terraced standing let alone safe standing.

 

As long as people are sensible about it it will be fine. And if somewhere is extremely populated, just go elsewhere and find some space, there will still be one seat per person in theory. It just makes it a little chaotic and might take a couple of minutes longer to find "your seat".

Can see us selling this out quite easily. And unless the stewards corral people into areas as they arrive like cars parking it will be interesting for the last few hundred searching for where the hell they're gonna sit?

Would think due to low allocation. But would like to see how many have sold after 395. Would give an indication as to how many are north of that

It would be interesting to know how many are in each bracket, although it obviously changes after each game a little.

A few hundred on the scheme is it? Then home box holders with a few tickets each, player’s friends/family, plus hangers on. Then the ordinary 395+.

What’s a guess for priority level of selling out here?

£25 away midweek for an early round League Cup on the one hand, but somewhere we’ve not been to recently and fairly local on the other.

Well the club have only gone as low as 315+ and from 320+ they break into 5 points difference. They must expect this to not make it that far. I would think maybe 320+ if not 340+. Certainly will not survive the weekend (14th/15th).

Luton are a small club, unlike PL clubs they rely on match day income, more than happy to help smaller clubs prosper. When we played them in a friendly a few years ago it was £15 a ticket, 

 

I agree for the PL, twenty is more than plenty

When we were drawn Wolves last year it seemed like a nice local game but it still took me 2 hours to get there. I think going to Luton will actually be quicker than Wolves. It's about as local a game as we are used to recently, I mean I have been treating Watford as a local game the last couple of years!
