You need to look at the F S A ( Football supporters Association ) website about E-Ticketing the supporters at Liverpool West ham Southampton and Palace missing kick off due to the system not working and they are all premier league stadiums so what chance have we got with borough park And these clubs won't be giving cheaper programmes also it will be more than 50p 0r a £1 transaction all so you have got to think off our older supporters who have been going longer than most off you will they no what a E ticket is and no offence to our older supporters the club will get it right
I dont think anyone is arguing for the tickets to be 100% online, just for that option to be available Considering i paid cash in a turnstile today (well done for opening one) im still not clear why tickets bought in advance are still enforced anyway
poprobson22, you are quite right about helping fans who do not have a mobile phone, email or even a debit card. I have a plan for handling them through the adjustment. If anyone wants to hear the ideas, you can catch me in the Tony Hopper Bar after tomorrow's game (Most people know who I am). I'll be pleased to go through any concerns or issues and show how the Club can implement the scheme while allowing for the vulnerable. I'll also go through the business case, if required. I have been working on it with the e-ticketing company and the case now comes out even stronger than I had previously shown. I have revised the figures based on starting in November.
We have had 14 replies to the Fans' Survey form asking how much they were prepared to pay as a booking fee. My thanks to all those who took part. While 14 is not a representative sample, the findings are indicative. The results are:
50p - but the Club loses money: 1 (7%)
£1 - the Club loses no money: 8 (57%)
£1 - the Club loses no money and the fan gets a free match e-programme: 5 (36%)
I voted for the last one. Please draw your own conclusions.

A doddle, cheers all for setting it up. 40p booking fee compared to trekking through from St Bees with the kids just to collect a physical ticket? A no brainer!
Quick edit - the online experience was great, the match day experience not so great....
Tried the 'tickets only' turnstile, got turned away and told that there's another turnstile for tickets and e-tickets. Tried that, got turned away the first time because apparently I should have known that the one person from the club with the QR scanner would be knocking about somewhere outside. Eventually got in at the third time of asking. I wasn't the only one that this happened to.
Maybe give the scanner to the person working the turnstile and have something on the booking site saying e-tickets only accepted at x turnstile?
