How Many Tickets

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how many tickets have gone so far for Saturdays game.

Assuming they are numbered from 0..

 

My own are

 

Adult 1183

Child 467

 

That should give us a crowd of 1650

 

can anybody add to that

I see from the Records on the Fleet Website that our highest attendance was 12032 12 Feb 1963 v Sunderland in the FA Cup 4th round.

 

Aside from that what other large attendances have there been.

 

Was the Canvey game in the Ryman 4000?

Not sure the ticket numbers have any bearing on the numbers sold cos the two I got a couple of weeks ago were numbered 1016 and 1017.

I disagree - I bought mine on the day that they first went on sale and mine were numbered 00310 & 00127 - that was approximately 2 hours after they first went on sale.

 

Baring in mind that 1400 were sold by the end of that day.....

So the highest at the moment is

 

Adult 1308

Child 550

 

On going total 1858 plus any that Notts County have sold

 

 

 

On the Canvey question when I went in monies were being thrown into buckets. The largest I saw was the 6000 for the Notts Forest game. There seemed to be more in the ground when Canvey came.

My contacts who I will not reveal tell me that if County sell their 600 we could get between 2700 and 3000. Anything less would be very dissapointing. The Canvey attendance will never be officially known but it was huge. When we played Forest in a friendly to unveil our new floodlights we had about 6500.

For the pedants amongst us, our biggest home attendence was the 26,000 odd that attended our home match with Aston Villa

If you are going by the numbers on the tickets, don't forget that 4 types are being sold, not 2, to Fleet supporters: being a crusty old git, I've bought seat tickets (8 in total) & I'm pretty sure these are numbered separately to the terrace ones. Think the last ones I bought at the Dagenham game were in the 80s.

 

Even though I am a centre stand season ticket holder, there are no centre stand tickets on sale, so presumably this area will be full of freeloaders/guests (delete according to degree of cynicism.)

Probably will Lenny, FA regulations require us to give Notts 50 Complimentary tickets, now although these don't have to be stand tickets, I'm sure that some of them will be.

 

There are also going to be a lot more press than usual, so it's getting a touch cramped in the centre stand.

I bought my ticket after the match on Saturday - the number is 1353 which takes us up to 1903 plus seat tickets plus those sold to Notts County!

Incidentally (showing how old I am) I was one of the 12,032 at the match against Sunderland in 1963!

fficial attendance v Forest was 6032.

 

What a night that was as well - Phil Stonebridge putting us ahead after 5 minutes was a real highlight - Forest then ran rings round us thereafter, but not surprising as they were Euro Champs and League Champs at the time - Should think it will be the one and only time we ever have both the League Trphy and the European Cup at Stonebridge Road.

 

What a squad they had as well Montgomery, Anderson, Gray, McGovern, Needham, Burns, O'Neill, Bowles, Birtles, Francis, Robertson started the game and subs included Mills, O'Hare and Gunn.

 

Cloughy senior had many people out to knock him, but I always had a soft spot for him and his sides thereafter.

 

Of our side that night, I think only 2 went on to higher level football - Lee Smelt, our goalkeeper, who signed for Forest, but never quite made the breakthrough, and Peter Osborne, who actually played in the Cup Winners Cup in a subsequent season, after he signed for Bergen in the Norwegian league.

 

Happy days !!

Obviously this match is not going to sell out.

 

Maybe we need to reconsider the all-ticket policy for this game?

 

Let's face it - would we get 1000 turn up on the day, on the off-chance that there was room to admit them into the ground?

Agreed. If the crowd is 3000 there will be loads of space. Stonebridge Rd is a large venue for non-league standards. The all ticket policy is safety minded. Cant knock that. However the club is throwing money away. Still this time the people viewing the game should amount to around 2 million. 60000 at Old Trafford in the next round will seem insignificant to Saturday.

In the last few days I have spoken to quite a few people who after reading these forums and speaking to other fleet fans are aware that the game will not be a sell out and have not bothered to buy tickets, and are willing to try their chances at the ground on the day of the match - be it by paying on the gate or trying to hunt down any spares off other fleet fans.

I havn't put one in yet as I thought it might be possible to find out in advance what the attendance would be. You may have to re-think the rules for this game!

As you are the only member of the prediction league who can edit a posting after 24 hours I suspect that this should be considered a sharp practice.

However, all is not lost because if anyone else wants to "adjust" their answer, they can PM me and no-one will be any the wiser.

More than 2/3rds gone - so on the basis that we had 3400 tickets - it means c2300 sold. With 300 or so County fans and others, it doesnt look like the gate will be much in excess of 3000 - slightly disappointing really, but I guess the TV coverage has something to do with that.

I can't understand how, unless you're really lazy, the TV coverage would make you want to stay at home. To me, it doubles the excitement and is even more reason for attending in the first place.

 

But that's Gravesend for you... the natives don't deserve a football club, they should all bugger off down the bowling alley... <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

The Club could have taken out a "full colour page sized advert" in the Reporter (weekly print run of 10,000) for a couple of consecutive weeks advertising the game, the fact Sky TV camera's would be present and any extra entertainment being provided. This would have helped raise the profile of the Notts County match!

 

As it is, this hasn't happened so its no use bemoaning the fact that the local population arn't exactly snapping up the tickets. P*ss Poor advertising equals little interest!

 

The 8 page special in this weeks Reporter maybe a week to late but you might get a last minute rush for tickets.
