    with the capacity likely to be a third of the grounds capacity... approximately 8000 fans and no away fans can fit in our stadium

    How the hell is it to be decided who can go... lucky dip

    Or do we play at a bigger stadium for a while like bellend Rd and we all get to watch

    Just sell match day tickets only. First come first served. Not got one quick enough? Tough try next home game

    They should have implemented a points based system years ago, usually used for away games and cup games but it’d have been very handy for these unusual times. Such an easy system to maintain and update too. This sort of stuff, or lack of, is Bradford City summed up.

    I should imagine all those that have already purchased season tickets.
    Then either open back up season ticket sales or match by match for the remaining availability.

    Just refund them people who have brought already.

    Increase the prices

    Make it season ticket sales only and start again.

    No...But I don't think it's fair that those who haven't paid already get 1st picks. Why?

    @Bronco for example just has his pension coming on. Does have to worry about about bills so when Rhodes says feed me then he can fee him. A family of 4 with bills to pay were going to pay but we leaving it late then couldn't due to Covid.

    The club need to refund those that had paid and start again. INCREASE THE PRICES! SEASON TICKET ONLY!!

    Do you really think the club are going to start refunding a full season ticket when you have already seen what happened with 5 games? It will be the same as Cup games if you miss out you don't watch unless iFollow do a deal

    Yeah I do because noboday knows what's going to happen in terms of local local downs. The season tickets are too cheap and it it won't serve what it intends to do now by selling them so cheap.

    Sell them for £200.. You will get natural drop outs anyway. No flexi ticktets.

    I would say our hardcore fan base is around 8k fans anyway.

    Highlights the problem of one price STs, easier to prioritise when there are different ticket bands

    I would think flexi's will be knocked on the head,at least for next season.With the uncertainty of being guaranteed admission,I don't think season ticket sales will be anything like some people are expecting,and a capacity of 8000 might be enough.

    Without being able to attend footy for nearly 7 months when they can return, I think there will be a bit of a rush for tickets. As bad as we are. It’s much better in person

    Not sure..

    No away fans seems boring to me.

    Then it can't be buy on the day because fans will need to be tracked. It has to season ticket sales only.

    Also, no loud music and not sure songs will be allowed to chatted.

    Fan masks will have to be worn.

    It won't be just come in act normal.

    Not sure much of that will matter come October. Still another 3 months away. A bit like going to the pub I think a lot will be desperate to get back. More normality. We will wait and see but can see us selling 8000 each game comfortably however that may work
