The reason all the tickets go to Stormforce is because say Cardiff have a 200 allocation for Storm supporters, what should they do? Put them on telephone sale, if so what would be the difference between them and the rest of the tickets? Cardiff supporters could come along and buy them all. So they give them to Storm, and as Ogdens do not deal with away travel they go to the Official supporters club, Stormforce.
(Who get more tickets for many away game than other teams, because the man who organises it all gets on well with the people at the rinks.)
How would you sell them, if you were Cardiff? At least this way they guarantee that 200 go to Storm supporters, if they went on telephone sale they may all end up in Cardiff supporters hands.
