At the start of the 2014 season I was asked to volunteer on match nights. I haven't missed a friendly or competitive home game (including Tallaght & Aviva) from then to the lockout in March 2020. I was told I would never need a season ticket. You'll forgive me if I'm not really engaged by the whole match ticket saga.

That is the kind of thing that should no longer be happening and I’m sorry it has happened to you. Hopefully the next owners are able to bring in a range of ticketing options that look after regular match goers and people who help the club as well as season ticket holders. Can’t be that hard if resourced adequately. Like you could have a fancard just like a ST holder that records when you pay at the gate, attend away games, or volunteer on a night so that those people get some sort of priority access too.

Tomorrow will be the 1st home European I’ve missed(pandemic lockout apart) since 1980s. I chose to take refund for my allocated stand ticket. Can’t really have any complaints as it was my choice to do this. Doesn’t make it any less sickening however. Would love to be going. I was hoping there would be some in general sale

Haven't seen any official announcement but the game is being streamed as expected on LOITV. While you are paying your €10, you might as well get the Cup match on Sunday, I see it's also being streamed.

Any spare tickets should be split between volunteers and 2020 season ticket holders in my opinion. It would be a shame for not all 1000 tickets to be sold.

I would be in the same situation as yourself with tickets as I didn't renew but signed up for the Patreon instead lucky enough as the content produced would be something that I would have interest in.

If there are 700 ish ST holders which was said during the draws and 200 ish Patreon members, and some of those will be the same people, and not every single one will be able to make it, then how will they sell the full 1,000?

Looks like there is a few hundred left on general sale. I couldn't get anywhere near the half way line yesterday when booking & now there is plenty.

Hope it sells out now and we’re not embarrassed. Organising 2 or 3 hour round trips to the other side of Dublin to get home at midnight shouldn’t have been left for punters until the day of the game.

We the club. It’s 1000 tickets it would have sold out no bother but it might not now cos of how late everything is. Not many can organise these things at a few hours notice.

I think the spanner in the works was the time frame and online portal issues. If this had been set up and organised to go live say at weekend or even Monday then there would have been no issues. The ground work could have been started after the first leg as realistically Newtown were not going through after the first leg result. Also a lot of older fans may not have access to the internet for the online portal, which wasnt working for a lot of fans. If we get through this round the club should be looking to get the next round as a test event to allow more fans in.
