I got the impression that people just want a fair opportunity to be able to get a ticket for a match.
There are supporters who travel to matches that make their own travel and ticket arrangements. I can understand the frustration these supporters feel if they are told that they MUST be in Stormforce and MUST travel by coach if they wish to see a game.
As pointed out elsewhere on the forum getting tickets for most away games is not a problem (I counted 23 Storm supporters at Bracknell in the Express Cup) so this controversy rarely arises.
However, since success? and popularity brings a greater demand for tickets maybe Ogdens and/or Stormforce should look at this issue so that in can be addressed for next season.
The supporter who makes their own arrangements is no less, or for that matter, more a supporter than one who travels with Stormforce on the coach and therefore
should all supporters should have a fair opportunity of purchasing a ticket.
If ticket distribution is handled by one outlet then it is possible to record and monitor sales and thereby prioritise applicatioins for over subscribed events. However we are not, yet!, the size of football clubs like MUFC and I suppose that the adnmistration costs would be hard to justify.
