    Any ideas when the tickets for this game go on sale?

    Only 19 days, got the weekend off and wanna go.

    Just doing a Google check and away fans can be permitted 1933 tickets in a 6335 capacity. Some percentage for away fans there.

    Thanks

    They might give us more, they barely ever breach the 2,000 mark.

    Always enjoyed Macc away.

    It is a bit of a trek from the town centre, but a couple of decent craft ale houses have opened up since we last played at Moss Rose.

    Beware the open terrace, been a couple of times, once it was freeeeezing! Snow round the pitch and Little David brown scoring the winner from a goalkeeper howler. Also remember a peter thorne brace getting us a win there too early on one season.

    Only time I’ve been was when we beat them after ET in the cup, Stu scored. It would definitely be one I’m want to go to if I still lived down there, hopefully we’ll get a win there, we certainly won’t lack for away support anyway.

    They haven't paid their players and the EFL have been contacted to step in. They were also taken to court by their own players last season.

    It is my understanding they actually have a winding up petition against to be heard prior to our game (If that game should go ahead).

    Oh dear. Wasn't aware their plight was so bad. Thanks for the heads up.

    A possibility on why tickets have yet to go on sale?

    From the BBC

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49926802

    Macclesfield Town players and staff have asked the English Football League for help after they went unpaid again.

    The EFL have since contacted the League Two club to request their observations, before deciding the next steps to take.

    The Silkmen, who were previously taken to court by players over unpaid wages, are back in court on 23 October after a winding-up petition was adjourned.

    Later on Thursday, an EFL spokesman said: "Following the statement issued earlier today by players and other staff at Macclesfield Town, the EFL can confirm that it has today received complaints of non-payment of wages to players and staff.

    They have actually reduced the allocation this season. It’s now just over 1,600.

    Glad I purchased a priority card, for situations like Macclesfield it was well worth the money.

    I don’t think it’s the first time they’ve been in court for that. Keeps getting adjourned

    No you can't.
    Click an away block it doesn't do anything.
    Pick a home block and it allows you to buy a ticket.

    It seems that an extra 320 tickets may be made available, if we sell out the 1,600 or so tickets quickly; of course, that could be difficult if Macclesfield don't send us the initial allocation of tickets anytime soon.

    Yeah, I think we could sell close to the initial allocation suggested by @Bradford End, if not all. I would imagine the extra 320 may well come in handy!!

    I'm wondering on the delay on macclesfield releasing tickets. This game is due to be played in just 17 days ( and that's including today!!)
    Could this be to do with the impending court case as mentioned by @Edin Nowhere above?

    Anyhow, got in touch with the club and they appear to be in the dark as much as you and I.

    The additional tickets seem to be granted on police advise.

    There is a lot of interest in this game, but Macclesfield need to pull their fingers out.

    Noticed away tickets on sale for priority away travel membership at Macclesfield. How long so until they go on general sale for season ticket holders?

    The ground guide says 403 seats and approximately 1,500 on the open terrace.
    Expect them to be snapped up pretty quickly.
    Bought 3 seats 400 left.
