The Season Ticket Waiting List

Recommended Posts

What I don''t understand is why people who have very genuine reasons for not being a ST holder, and put Banana to shame, didn''t do similar to ''itstheruddyfuture'' and buy them in January/February/March when there was STs available if they knew they would be in Norwich for next season?

Does it really matter, though? As some posters have rightly pointed out, all the new fans will be bringing in money for the club, helping to fund the purchase of new players and strengthen our team.

The Season Ticket Waiting List is basicly for everyone who didn''t want one when we we''re only in League 1, and are now jumping on the bandwagon.

I know at least 4 people who are on the list so they can see ''their team and some other big teams''.

--------

That was my original post.

Surely the original idea of even having a waiting list came about from people who didn''t previously want one?

Yeah, there are some circumstances that I''ve read in this thread which I accept entirely and can understand, but surely the bulk of the waiting list is made up of fans who only just thought of the idea of getting one because we''ve been promoted?

If you could buy one in march then surely it stands to reason that fans who only want to see big teams are now wanting to go, thus making it more likely that those who want tickets who actually support the club (eg uni boys in this thread) miss out?

The biggest shame about all of this is that we don''t have a big enough stadium to fit everybody in! If we could accommodate everybody that wants a season ticket + casuals on the day what do people reckon our attendance could reach? 30,000? Perhaps with the neutral ''plastic'' fans who would come we could get 35,000 for the likes of Man Utd, Liverpool & Arsenal?We should be thankful we are not Wigan average attendance of 16,522 which is 65% of their capacity.In fact Everton, West Ham, West Brom, Villa, Birmingham, Sunderland, Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan all fill less than 90% of their grounds. It may be a problem, but its a nice problem to have!

I have supported Norwich as a ''casual'' supporter since 1965 but only bought my first season ticket at the start of our league1 campaign. I renewed this season but have not renewed for next year. Reason? I know that I will miss some games ( I missed 6 home games this year). I could have kept the ticket and lent it to someone if I couldn''t go,just to guarantee a seat but decided to give it up and take out super membership instead. So when you see me arrive with my ''casual ticket'' just remember that we are not all ''jumping on the bandwagon''.

Because of our location there will always be ''foreign supporters'' wanting to watch us in the Prem. I sat next to 2 Arsenal fans and season ticket holders last time we were in the Prem, never seen them since!!!

Its a no brainer because London or Birmingham or Manchester is so far away its easier for them to come and watch us! Sadly their money is worth the same as ours!

What''s wrong with support from outside the City?

I''m London-based and have been a loyal supporter since the 80''s. I get to as many home games as I can (11 this season) and all of the London games we play. I even try and sit in the same section in the Jarrold each time I go (hoping I can get my season ticket for the same area if/when one is available!)

To say travelling fans are ''foreign'' is a bit harsh, I was at Charlton the day we went down and had no intention of jumping ship to one of the so-called ''Big London Clubs''. In fact my local team is Millwall and the only time i''ve EVER been to the ground was in the visiting stand watch Norwich play.

Either you or I have lost the plot here, Cluck....

Is a '' quality '' supporter one who is quite happy to turn up and pay his/her 40-odd quid when the '' big '' teams roll into Carrow Rd next term, but, should we be relegated soon make his/her excuses and disappear over the horizon in 2012/13?

"It is inevitable that more city fans will try and get season tickets when we are in the Premier League".It is inevitable, but they will have to pay more for their tickets than existing Season ticket holders who renewed prior to last Monday, the day we got promoted.The club put prices up last Friday so the price structure originally issued at the end of last year now appears obsolete. I had a quick look at my area in the Jarrold stand & the cost has gone up by around 11/12%. The club don''t seem to have made this very public yet unless i''ve been looking in the wrong place.

From my experience you can''t help when you get hooked to Carrow Road. I started coming to the odd game when funds and time would allow, then my sons joined me and they too got the City bug and wanted to go more regulary. The cheapest and most convienient way was to buy season tickets for us, but there was a waiting list, we joined it, got our tickets and through good times and bad have stayed every since, And as we were singing Saturday " We were here when we were SH*T!"

The main reason is that casual tickets will be in short supply. There will be glory hunters for the big games and the away allocation will be larger. It''ll be even harder to pick up tickets on an ad hoc basis. I gave up my season ticket when I got a job involving working on a Saturday a few years back and as its in London it is very hard for me to get to Carrow Road now. Would I consider a ST? Probably yes if it guaranteed me a seat on the few occasions I can make it, and then I''d share it with friends and family for other matches. Its a real conundrum for someone like me, I have had to rely on casually buying which has still been tricky at times but now I fear I won''t get much chance to go at all. Theres always Sky I suppose but it doesn''t replicate actually being there. I''ve been at pretty much all the big games since my first visit in 1974 but away matches on a wet Tuesday have been my recent diet.

I''m sure all season ticket holders like myself will shortly be very popular with so called MAN U fans etc who think we may be able to help with a ticket!

I don''t think there will be any casual tickets at all for many of next season''s games. It''s been hard enough towards the end of this season for anyone without a membership to get anything. Stadium capacity increase will of course help.

Get ''em hooked early and they''ll be your '' prisoner '' for life and they''ll be much more likely to return '' ad hoc '' later on should they not be able to renew their season ticket in later years.You mention how NCFC were a '' community club '' at their peak in the early ''90''s. I can''t dispute that we played superb football in the late ''80''s/early ''90''s, a standard of football possibly never to be repeated. I also can''t dispute that this wonderful playing period was overseen by your hero, that great dictator, Bob Chase. For whatever reason - and, to be fair, this was something outside Big Bob''s control - attendances at Carrow Rd averaged around only 14,000. Far, far, easier to offer thousands of '' ad hoc'' match tickets when there''s thousands of unfilled seats, isn''t it ? I''ll bet my bottom dollar that had Mr Chase had the delightful attendance '' problem '' you say we have today he too would have targeted season ticket sales as the priority and said, "Sorry but hard cheese ", to anyone with nothing better to do but hoping to just wander in off the street at 3 o''clock on a Saturday afternoon.......

There will always be NEW supporters,either by being impressed by a game,or just reaching the age that they can now afford a season ticket...

So even though im in my 6th year as a ST holder,i would welcome new fans and ones who now can afford to be regulars!

Oh and a post i made last year concerning a few work mates who were thinking of getting ST`s sitting together pref the barclay,couldnt find seats in same row,so a couple bought new ones and the rest carried on just attending odd games...

My views as a STH ,

 

I have held one since 2000, my love for this club started in the late 1970’s when I was lucky enough to have been taken to my 1st game by my father. In those days and through the 80’s and even early 90’s  it was not necessary to buy one as you could pretty much guarantee that you could pay and watch on any match day, with the only stipulation being that big name games or derby’s would require a very early arrival and queuing to ensure that you got in.

 

Times changed and as my family grew older and were less of a financial drain I was fortunate to be able to afford one.

 

Although I have sympathy for those casual fans that cannot make the commitment due to finances, geography or even ill heath I do not understand why I should be deemed anything other than a fanatical supporter of this club. Next season I will  have the deepest sympathy for those that will find it difficult to attend due to limited availably of casual tickets, but I feel no guilt in knowing that my seat is guaranteed not only for premiership games having been  through some of the clubs deepest darkest times.

 

I was offered £100 and then £200 for my ticket at Riverside on Saturday,  £200 !!!!! half of this year season ticket cost, now I am sure that that individual had probably attended a number of games this season , and with that in mind would he had not have been better of buying one at the start of the season ?. That is why I have little or no sympathy unless they fall into the categories listed above !

"Not everybody has the time or ability to make more than the ''odd visit'' to CR" - well, if someone can''t make the "time" for a commitment to support Norwich, my heart isn''t going to bleed for them if they can''t get a ticket when the fancy takes them.

I know not everyone can afford a season ticket, but those of us who have put their money up front through the lean times deserve to reap the reward now we''re back with the "big boys".
