Ahead of this weekend’s final game of the SkyBet League Two campaign, there have been a number of calls made to the ticket office at Sincil Bank in relation to further tickets being released to home supporters ahead of the fixture.
Throughout this record breaking season, we have worked hard to ensure we maximise match by match availability in all parts of Sincil Bank. There are of course a number of factors which dictate the timing of this process.
LCFC have contacted Colchester United to get an early understanding of how many supporters they would expect attend this weekend’s fixture at Sincil Bank in an attempt to reach agreement as to the number of forecasted sales; therefore suppling the agreed ticket stock for advance sales only. Based on the allocation agreed this may also enable an initial stock of home Stacey West tickets to be put on sale,
In lieu of the above please note EFL rule 34.2.1 which LCFC are mandated to operate within at all times.
Each Club must make provision for at least 2,000 visiting supporters at every home match or such number as represents 10% of the Club’s certified capacity, if less than 2,000…..
Where the opposition club agree to act as vendor for Lincoln City home fixtures, tickets for away supporters will remain on sale at their respective ticket offices until 12pm (noon) on Friday for Saturday. The away club would then supply LCFC with actual sales numbers. Based on this information LCFC officials will then consult with external colleagues (if required) to consider moving the segregation line to allow more Imps’ supporters into the Stacey West Stand and/or if we can allow Pay On The Day for home and away supporters. This decision will be made and announced as early as possible.
If there are any extra tickets for home supporters they will be made available for supporters to purchase online via Eventbrite at 7pm on Friday evening ahead of Saturday’s game. If this is the case this will be communicated here on Redimps.co.uk as early as possible.
Please be aware that due to variable timescales in communicating with the away club, LCFC may not always be able to provide extensive notice period for additional sales, however this will be no earlier than 7PM the day before a game and where possible 7PM will be adopted the regular timeslot. To be explicit, it is expected that advanced notification times may be variable, however where possible 7PM will become a permanent fixture across the season.
The above process has been in place throughout the current SkyBet League Two season and full details can be found HERE.
