It would be great if the club has learned the lessons of the previous TM disasters where blocks in the corners were released at first to the early buyers. Maybe if the club took blocks of tickets for sale to fans the usual ticket trauma could be reduced?
I think the FAI dictate policy here. Visually they won't want pockets of Dundalk fans with gaps. In addition, each block opened up means hiring more stewards. I'm also assuming that - irrespective of whether it's Cork or Bohs - we will the same end as usual.
Of course it's an FAI gig and they make policy decisions. That does not mean that the club have no influence in any aspect of ticket distribution.
You only have to look back over each of the previous cup final ticket threads to see how much of a fiasco the Ticketmaster distribution (overseen by the FAI) can be, and how it impacts on fans.
The club can and should be proactive in trying to ensure that buying a ticket for a match that will not sell out will not turn into the now normal ordeal for supporters.
