I’ve just been successful in the members ballot and it’s the first time I’ve used the ballot. Does this mean I’m likely to get a ticket? 

Guaranteed a ticket if you have been successful. You will get access to buy a ticket in a certain window of dates.

The below should help.

Oh superb - thanks both.

 

Wasn’t sure of it was a case of x amount of tickets for members in the ballot which we’d be scrapping over or bundled in with STH 360+ and should be a relatively stress free experience.

Nah you are guaranteed a ticket. My neighbour has been successful as well. He thought he had to buy on monday. He didn't realise he had a few days grace.

 

For your future ref the way the ballot works is as a normal ballot, 100s or 1000s may enter but theres only about 50 or 60 actually successful all those drawn get a ticket. End of.

And if memory serves I think you have to buy within the stated window or you lose the right - and have to wait until they go on sale to members. They do give you two or three days though.

We've officially been allocated 4226 tickets, but there's a good chance we'll actually get more.

 

We have initially been allocated the whole North stand behind the goal.  

On the AVFC site, they are only advertising their fans to have access to the Holte End, Trinity Road and Doug Ellis stands.

 

Unless they sell out all their home tickets really quickly, and want to "claim back" the North Stand lower tier ... I think we'll probably end up getting that too.

 

Also, our web site notes the selling order as the middle Upper blocks (T2,T3,T4), then outer upper blocks (T1,T5), then lower blocks (R2,R3,R4), then lower blocks (R5,R6).   Lower blocks R1 and R7 are in the corner, and would be left empty.

 

There are 4000 seats in the upper tier and 2900 in the lower tier.  The corner blocks R1 and R7 probably use up 900 or so.

So I think there's a good chance we'll get about 6000 for this in total.

I'm never successful in these ballots lol

 

Usually manage to get my ticket eventually down the line but would be nice to actually get ONE at the first time of asking :rolleyes:

Where on the website does it say in which order the blocks will be released to away fans? I couldn’t find this information on the ticket site.

99%. Was easy enough for the league game plus we have an extra 1000 tickets. Trains back to Leicester are a no go, you’ll be fine. 

22:22 is the last train to Leicester from New Street, miss that and it's an expensive trip home. Any extra time and penalties would cause a lotta issues

No extra time until the final.

Looks like we have the whole of the North Stand however the first few rows of the lower tier and the block closest to the normal away section will probably be covered in netting.

It's not yet "officially" on the LCFC web site, but the relevant information is as attached.   And this tallies with the information on the Villa web site.

If we all ask EMR to put on a football special, as they did for Derby a few years ago, they might run one.   The more people get in touch, the more chance it could happen.

I'll drop them an Email this weekend.

I think Cross Country do the trains from Birmingham to Leicester. Not sure if they’re owned by EMR.

We've had quotes for taxis. 45 quid for car. 70 for 8 seater. So less than a tenner. 

 

If you bite the bullet and only buy a single there on the train you save 6 quid so theres half the taxi fare saved if you can fill a car or 8 seater.
