For someone who was at Bedfont/Ware away, I hope the same. Surely previous cup ticket holders will get priority?

Worst comes to Phil, buy tickets for Gloucester and don't go? Suspect that's what I'll end up having to do. (Mulling over York at the moment)

Club should now roll out a loyalty points system for next season onwards, very simply to do given that’s its now all online.

For those of you who were at the earlier rounds, or the less glamorous midweek games etc, you would never have a problem getting tickets for future cup runs.

For example, next season give HST holders 100 loyalty points, then say 10 points for every game away etc.

That way it would stop the “glory hunters” getting tickets before others.

Need extra security for game as its on tv and people being searched before gaining entry to ground to stop any flares being thrown or any pitch invasions

We did ask for the FA to consider switching the game then. A little disappointing.

Has it now been reported/confirmed officially?

No. But I believe we did.

The longer it takes for ticket information to emerge from Hoo Road the more I suspect discussions going on to change the venue to London Stadium, but I hope this is not the case.

Once it’s been chosen as a live televised game I don’t think there’s any prospect of a switch in venue.

I hope not too.

I would imagine there is a lot of considerations regarding capacity/covid/allocation/stewarding etc etc

We aught to be aiming for 6,250 attendance.

Both clubs need to agree on pricing,we’re probably saying £40/45 a ticket & West Ham aren’t agreeing I’d say.

The longer it goes on, the less likely they will offer a half-season ticket or say a pack of 6 match vouchers for £xx.

Just got an email promoting tickets for York.

If details aren't out today or tomorrow, the whole thing will start stinking to high heaven.

Club's missed the boat on getting a bumper gate for York/Gloucester. Really poor and ineffective commercially.

The venue cannot be changed unless there are security concerns about the ground, this was brought in circa 2003. Our ground is fine so can’t imagine this is the cause of the delay

Probably to do with agreement on policing / stewarding/ pricing. Really hope they don’t go ridiculous on it!

West Ham have denied any ground swap discussions.
