The 1400 Leeds fans at Salford last night which consisted of 800 away-season-tickets holders & 600 fans who had attended the most away games recorded on the LUFC tracker system.
3,000 tickets sold in a couple of minutes this morning
I missed out last season when we played Stoke, somehow our Supporters Club managed to obtain some tickets. I don't think I'll get lucky this time.
If Leeds United continue with this system they could kill off the supporters clubs that have been taking fans to away games for over fifty years
God help us if we are promoted to the premiership
That's ok mate yes there were 60 available but they were snapped up in minutes. The requirement to acquire a AST was 25 games, because I missed the QPR cup game & what with the fiasco with Stoke last season where I was lucky to obtain a ticket on someone's s/t number as he couldn't make it I officially had only attended 23 aways.
Anyway although I've done 23 plus Bristol, Salford & Wigan (Saturday) this season, fans who have attended a couple of aways & no doubt there'll be more when the 10% go on sale to membership card holders have nipped in ahead of 100's like myself. Consequently I've got feelers out with friends hoping I can grab a ticket, shouldn't be the case though if LUFC deployed a more sensible approach on ticket sales.
The perils of success from a loyal fans point of view, there would be no problem if we were shite !
