Looking at our FORUM, once again it appears that tickets for the Europa League are in abundance on the black market.
If you haven`t got a ticket I besiege you to be careful if you enter into negotiations with anyone you select from the pages of this site as we are not liable for anything that may go wrong.
But, it still wrangles with some that Fulham Football Club appears to have handled the sale of the tickets for the final in a rash manner.
Allowing season ticket holders to purchase four tickets at a time soon meant that the limited stock of 12,500 was sold out.
A rough mental calculation shows that even though Craven Cottage holds circa 25,000, those 12,500 tickets could see as little as 4,100 regulars and circa 9,000 of their friends enjoying themselves in Hamburg.
It`s no wonder some supporters are up in arms about the situation.
Surprisingly, the club feel that they did nothing wrong and some quotes form Sarah Brookes, the Director of Communications, offer an insight into there way of thinking,
“We had a limited window to sell off our tickets and if we didn`t manage to sell them all then the club would have taken a million pound financial hit.”
“We apologise, of course we apologise if anyone has missed out, but this really is an unprecedented level of demand – we have never sold out an away ticket allocation so quickly.”
“We are looking at ways to help genuine supporters and season ticket holders who may have missed out and we will do all we can to help sort out any anomalies.”
“But I am confident that the vast majority of fans who have followed us through thick and thin over the years will be with us in Hamburg.”
Word, just words, we doubt that last statement will ever hold water Sarah!
On election day; it sounds like typical election speak!
