Maybe they are trying to force season ticket holders with kids to sit in the family area?

I have the same problem as you. My son is 4 though so I might just have to give up the season ticket I got him.
Problem is that we know and the club knows that if you do, he may well not get one for 20+ years. So people will mostly renew even if they're put in a seat they wouldn't choose at a price that isn't reasonable.

Is there going to be a family area? Where is it going to be? Is there one at Wembley? I’m desperate to take my daughters 9, 7 and 4 to a game but the bloke next to me keeps saying the c and f words. I think i’d have to end up having a word with him which could be a bad move because he’s a f****** massive c***

Serious question about the family area though.

There is - blocks 106 and 107. Which obviously sold out pretty quickly, especially as nothing was done to stop non-families buying season tickets there. We're required to have one by PL rules, but it might be similar again at the new ground.

So if there were 26000 season ticket holders already and I just got one for this season but was around 1000th on the list. I'm effectively 27,000th in the pecking order??

Where does the loyalty points come to play?

It sounds like whereas for this season new season ticket holders were split into priority groups based on loyalty points accumulated as members, for next season it'll just be a massive free for all for about 20,000 people which is a spectacularly dumb idea.

They mention something along the lines of it'll be based on your position on the waiting list at the end of the 2016/17 season.

Considering I only just scraped in, I'm assuming I'm going to be one of the last to be offered a ticket. It seems the fairest way though.

It looks like eight sales windows of 5000 season ticket holders in each window. . Each windows approx 2-3 days. That's how I read it.

Gutted that it looks like groups wont be able to book together. That would have been great for atmosphere and people getting used to the new gaff.

Also, very concerned about ticket prices, got a feeling that the club are going to screw us. Normal folk priced out of it

My guess on the 8 phases would be;

1 - 20yrs+ or 450+ LPs
2 - 15yrs+ or 350+ LPs
3 - 10yrs+ or 250+ LPs
4 - 5yrs+ or 150+ LPs
5 - More than 1 year
6 - Waiting List 0-5k
7 - Waiting list 5-20k
8 - Waiting list 20k+

Who knows though, all very interesting and exciting times.

Groups can book together, you just have to wait for the person's purchase stage with the lowest yrs/points on their ST to come up.

I think this will happen to a lot of people, so I wouldn't worry too much.

I think people should remember if we had not moved to Wembley but straight from old ground to new ground it would be the same. The existing ST holders would have first choice and then they would have worked through the waiting list.

Does anyone know if the club will be imposing limits on the numbers of season tickets available in each stand? For example, will the full 17.5k in the south stand will be available to be purchased as season tickets or will the club hold some seats back to ensure non-season ticket holders will have the chance to buy tickets in this area?

Thinking about it, Im sceptical the ticket office is going to have records of how long each season ticket holder is going to have had their season tickets. They aren't going to have records going back 20 years. Probably why they've put the bit in about loyalty points.

Almost certainly they'll hold some back - it's how it was always done at the Lane where there were people who couldn't re-locate to the Park Lane but you could buy individual matchday tickets in there. It's just a question of how many.

On a related point, what do you think are the chances of people staying seated in the upper parts of the new South Stand or do you think people will stand all the time? I'm getting to an age where standing for the whole game will start to get a bit much if it's the same the whole season!

I'm sure lower down it will be people standing most or all of the time.

Probably pretty high, especially for the bigger matches. There will be a lot lower down the priority who choose the south because they want to stand, but aren't able to get seats near the bottom. If you do risk it there's a good chance you could move - they won't want you complaining since they're technically meant to stop people standing, and demand shouldn't be as high in other parts of the ground, but obviously you probably wouldn't get somewhere as good as you'd have from just choosing elsewhere in the first place.

I’m happy that my 19 years as a season ticket holder is being recognised after the recent change to only allow 5 years of loyalty with the points. My 20th year could well be my last so I’m hoping for a good spot!

It my 32 year as a STH , I’ve got over 600 loyal points.I expect to have the choice of sitting next to Poch or Daniel.

I was more or less told months ago that this is how tickets would be allocated and as I was nearly 40,000 on the waiting list I suspect will be near the end of the queue. However I am happy with that as it seems fair to long time season ticket holders and probably anywhere in the ground will be good and better than not having a season ticket
