Anyone tried to get tickets for the Bohs game yet? I'm trying to buy for me and my son but it'll only allow me buy one ticket.

Sorted now colly. I was the same. Ended up buying two adult instead. But contacted bohs and they refunded me and I was then able to buy a child's ticket on its own

It's a bit of a scam. Makes you buy them all separately and pay the processing fee each time. Also no concessions left and I hadn't even received the email from the club yet....

Similar carry on by Pats and Rovers this season. No issues with concessions and kids tickets for Drogheda. Does anyone know what % of concessions and kids tickets a club must provide or is it up to them?

Quite possibly the reason the concession and child tickets are all gone is because the usual suspects buying them all up . I went on when they went on sale and even though myself and my son have season tickets it would only allow me to purchase one adult ticket. So I bought one adult and checked out, then tried to buy the child one, wouldn't allow me on its own. So had to buy a second single adult ticket. Booking fee on each transaction. I sent bohs an email and they cancelled one of the tickets and refunded me. Then I was able to go and buy the child's ticket on its own. As you say this processing fee of €1 per ticket is a scam.

Be no harm for you to contact the club about your email. I wasn't receiving the emails for ticket sales last season, contacted the club and got it sorted. They had the correct email for me, but for some reason it wasn't sending.

64k is the population of Dundalk Municipal District.

Thanks, I got the mail alright but it seems like others had got it a few hours before me. Still would have thought some concessions would be available

Quite a few Rovers fans not best pleased either. (I'm not crying, just something in my eye). Their game with Cork City moved to Sunday as well. Community Shield on TV that day as well so a lot of part-time LOI fans will have to make difficult decisions.

It appears this will be the norm going forward for clubs involved in Europe.
