Spot on. It will be a doddle, but if by some miracle we sell out before I get one I'll just buy from Huddersfield instead.

Widnes holds around 12,000, and everyone was able to get a ticket from what I remember. Huddersfield aren't going to bring as many as Wigan did.


We took 12,000 to widnes in the semi when we played catalan not wigan,cats fans only sold 200 for that game.

Hudds will sell about 3,000 ish so wire should get the rest hopefully we should have 8-9,000 but buy quick :D

Burgess, Ellis and Thaiday for strenth and being a nother prop.

If you want the whole package then Lockers is the best right now.

Depends on how you define ‘want’ there will be many that would like to go but will not get a ticket. There will be loads reasons for this. Some will be working, some will be on a tight budget, and miss the semi-final in the hope we reach the final, and their hard earned cash could be better spent, but I digress.

If there were more than 5,500 tickets available would we be able to sell them? Yes we would, therefore, everyone that ‘wants’ a ticket will not get one. Those really really want(zig a zig ah) a ticket will probably get one, but there will be plenty of people would like to go but are not prepared, or are unable to queue for a couple of hours to get one.

The fact that we could, and would, IMO sell 10,000 tickets for this game is proof that not everyone that wants a ticket will get one.

Me? I’m hardcore, I’ll be camping out on the Sunday night

10% discount ends on Sunday though, so be quick. :wink:

You won't need to queue at all. I'll be purchasing one online when it goes to general sale.

I don't even expect the match to completely sell out and strongly suspect any ticketless Wires on the day who want to go will be able to walk up and pay into the Huddersfield end.

We have 8000 season ticket holders, but not all of them are going to go, there will be quite a few who don't go to away games. Say Hudds send back 3000 then that is 8,600 for us which will be plenty I reckon. Another reason that they won't sell out is that the tickets for the seated stand in the centre are £26 for adults which is a rip off as well. I know that tickets for our North Stand are expensive but not a lot went to the Bradford game in the North Stand when it was that expensive.

We have this debate every time we have a big game. Tickets are always easy to come by unless you leave it until the very last minute and even then there's always someone with spares.

The crowds for semi finals can be artificially reduced though by being in these small grounds.

By limiting the initial allocation to season ticket holders getting 1 each it does lower the crowd. I understand why they do it, and agree with benefits to ST holders, but it does artificially limit the crowd.

In our group who went to Magic on Saturday, only half of them were season ticket holders. This now means that our group of 10/11 won't be able to go and get seats together for the semi final. My mum for example wouldn't go and not sit with my dad who is a season ticket holder.

By playing the semi finals in small grounds with low allocations it does limit the number of people who will attend.

Semi finals should be a party atmosphere where you can attend with your friends and family, and maybe seen as an attempt to convert a few lapsed or new fans, but I don't think it achieves this at the moment.

Sure we'll sell 6k or so and everybody will make out that the number is those who were interested, but the reality is that in different circumstances the potential Wire crowd is 10-12k, and that is proven.

Got to agree Dave. If we can take 5000+ to Manchester for a league game that we were very strong favourites for then surely we ought to have ambitions of being able to at least double that for an exciting semi final that could easily go either way and brings the reward of a place at Wembley rather than just 2 points. Your argument about the casual fans being put off is spot on.

One query on seated tickets - does anyone know if they are Reserved or Unreserved?
