Fulham ticket details?

The ticket office contacted me today about this season - so am expecting with tomorrow's announcement for Fulham we will hear the Riverside announcements too.
Am sure the council and local safety group SAG will be involved in discussions about Riverside ticketing, concourses, face masks, lateral flow tests etc.
Are you inferring that you think the grounds capacity is going to be restricted?

No I don't know. The SAG insisted on no selling of food/drink outside the pilot game v Bournemouth last season. Concourses were already closed. They also insisted on lateral flow tests for the England games at Riverside. I don't know exactly what jurisdiction they still have without government measures does anyone else? But those are the kinds of influences they have had in the recent past.
 
Still nothing on Fulham not even a pre-announcement, very strange.
I think this is universal across the league. Lots of other comments on championship team's boards. There is higher being at work here. If it is the EFL I have no idea how a League Cup fixture is ok but a EFL game would not be ok for traveling fans. I don't think it would be Fulham slowing this process down if the same issue is being reported across the Championship. Certainly very strange.

My girlfriend is already making plans for that weekend... I need saving...

But surely a statement from the club just to state that fact would appease.

Tip - stay online tomorrow - it could be a very hectic/speedy ticket sale.
From what we know of limited capacity then it may well be high priority points people.

No guarantee you get a shot at buying tickets if you're a season ticket holder then...

What ever they announce (unless no fans allowed) its going to subject to what the wider authorities decide right up to the day of the match.

I can't understand how they don't just sell say 1600 tickets and inform people they will be seated next to the strangers who maybe unvaccinated and untested and not wearing a face covering. You do buy a ticket at your own risk. No refunds.

I bet most fans that want to go would still buy a ticket.

We know that the away end is only 1500-1600 absolute maximum - therefore how can that be enough for the demand from 15 000 season ticket holders.

I would hope they are going to give some notice, rather than just land the message cold, like ‘tickets on sale now’ that would be ridiculous, if that was to be the case, the announcement should have happened today.

Am just warning people it is likely to be a ticket sale tomorrow.
I mentioned yesterday that when I contacted Boro they still did not have the full information from Fulham. They were still waiting on numbers and details.
Mark and myself are giving people a forewarning to be on your toes.

It’s not but a season ticket used to at least give you a chance at buying in demand tickets…doesn’t even guarantee you the chance anymore.

Thanks for the heads up though, I’m in London all day tomorrow, so will keep an eye on my phone.
