My ticket didn’t sell on the ticket exchange either. Feel bad that it’s gonna be empty now, but it’s my daughter’s birthday party and the mates who would have had it all away this weekend.

My kids one hasn’t sold either (you can transfer them to adults). Where are all these fans that were moaning about not being able to get tickets for the Palace game gone?!?!

Yeah, I didn’t really try hard to reach out to other people I know who might have wanted it as I just assumed it would go as everyone was complaining that tickets were impossible to get for the first few matches. Strange.

People can’t blame Wembley now, I wonder what it will be.

12.30 KO Vs Huddersfield is pretty much hardest sell of the season new stadium or not and after most gone midweek. Added to fact nearly all exchange seats are single. People have also seen now, that’s its quite likely you will be able to get a ticket for the lower level PL games. So maybe they don’t feel the need to rush and rather wait for better game at better time.

We snapped a couple up for 46 each! After panicking about not getting a ticket when it went on sale for members!

Doesn’t add up though

All these super loyal members were telling us a couple of weeks ago the games should be done on loyalty points, the stadium wasn’t big enough. Now clearly they’re not interested. Singles weren’t an issue for Palace or City as they sold out in minutes after going on sale.

People just don’t fancy Huddersfield at 12.30. The first season at Wembley is the best indicator for demand. I think our lowest was about 53k and highest 83k. Basically shows 30k will pick and choose their games.

Good news if people can’t be bothered to come and support the team today if it means the food and drink queues are shorter.

I suspect it will be pretty full though. 90% at least.

Got in as well!

Had to settle for row 21 so a bit lower in the south, but is that the safe standing area?

Bit harsh mate, I tried for 4 hours on 2 days to get tickets for Huddersfield through the donut if death with no luck. I then made plans for the weekend, not knowing that there would be that many tickets available via ticket exchange at the last minute.
I'm sure once everyone knows the system, things will even out, I certainly would have gone Saturday had I realised that many would be available on the Friday.
Lets be honest, we would have struggled for 30k at Wembley for that game, and if we used the same system as Woolwich, then Saturday was a sell out as all the tickets had been technically sold at least once.
Things will settle down, I certainly wouldn't expect any games to go to general sale in the foreseeable future.

Very easy to get Brighton tickets on the ticket exchange ATM, only problem is they are scattered throughout , highly unlikely to get a pair together but prices are ranging from £40 odd up to £95 from what I've seen.

More than "you can" transfer them to adults - on ticket exchange they are sold as adult tickets. So I think the main barrier to sales on ticket exchange are that it is hard to get pairs together, which I guess a lot of people would like anyway, but it completely rules out taking kids (even if you are prepared to pay adult prices).

Not a grumble, just an observation (I've been able to get great tickets for me and my son for Man City and Hudds through regular sales, although have paid adult prices).

Am guessing the club isn't too bothered - it has the ticket sale proceeds anyway, and it would be a disproportionate admin headache to try to manage sales of pairs / kids tickets on exchange.

It does make a season ticket more of a commitment though - I naively thought that, if I could get one, it would be a no brainer because I'd certainly sell the tickets to the matches I couldn't go to. It may be that there will be a fair few who may not renew f this turns out not to be the case, particularly in the more expensive areas.

Yea it’s annoying you can’t get kids prices on ticket exchange.

Don’t really want to pay adult price twice for me and my boy
I don't mind paying the adult price for a junior the first time if it means getting to see the stadium but I get what your saying going forward the ticket exchange should have junior options. Another gripe is there is only certain areas in the stadium that are available to juniors ,it would be good if like Wembley all areas were available.

Let’s be honest though, whatever the limitations, the ticket Exchange already seems better and fairer than the Stubhub nonsense. I’m sure next season things will settle sown as people work the system out.
