View Full Version : Season Cards on their way

23-07-2014, 02:20 PM
The season cards are being posted out today and tomorrow - we should all be receiving them by the end of the week or early next week.

A trial run against Verona on the 9th might be a useful exercise. Can't afford any gremlins the following week or the kick-off might be 9p.m.

'...or the kick-off might be 9p.m...'

on which day royboy? :s

Despite having changed my address 14 months ago , correctly altered the details on the club website AND having had an e-mail from the Club confirming the change I will be stunned if the my card ends up in the correct letterbox.

Watch this space ...

I opted for club shop pickup when they were released before any mention of cards. Should I assume this is still the case or wait for the post?

23-07-2014, 07:21 PM
think they are all being posted now I read earlier in week on here.

23-07-2014, 07:26 PM
Ah, ok thanks for that Homer

23-07-2014, 08:38 PM
I opted to pick mine up when I paid for them early bird and went in on Monday and picked them up then...

The Card has arrived!

Actually two have arrived, including another one for a 12-year old fan in the upper Jimmy Mac!

I will return to the club later today.

24-07-2014, 12:06 PM
Got mine.

What's the betting I forget to take the sodding thing with me?! ;D

24-07-2014, 12:41 PM
Mine yet to arrive

24-07-2014, 12:42 PM
Mine dropped through the letterbox ten minutes ago

24-07-2014, 12:45 PM
I collected mine at lunchtime. I was a bit disappointed that they don't give you a little wallet to put it into.

24-07-2014, 02:06 PM
Bloody ell Burnley_Lad2006! What do you want for AŁ400+, jam on it?!

24-07-2014, 02:20 PM
I understand people like to do things their own way but why are people scared they'll lose these?
Put it in your f&*Ai"&@g wallet

* Not a dig at you by the way PNW :)

24-07-2014, 02:59 PM
I, for one, very rarely take my wallet to matches.

24-07-2014, 03:01 PM
so staple it to your forehead.

24-07-2014, 03:02 PM
Now't to do with being from/living in Yorkshire is it, LeedsDave?

24-07-2014, 03:12 PM
Yeah, probably Alp. My hands won't reach the bottom of my pockets either! Anyway, it's "living in" as you suggest. I'm originally from Littleborough & my wife's from Burnley.

24-07-2014, 03:17 PM
Just collected mine from the Turf :D

24-07-2014, 03:32 PM
I have not seen the card yet and assume its the usual size of most credit cards etc. Suggestion for those that are worried about losing them. By a card holder that comes with a cord that allows you to put them over your head and round your neck. Like a number of large business use (swipe card).Okay you will still have to remember it on match day but you had to that anyway previously with your season ticket book.

Cant wait to receive my "Ticket for Turf"

24-07-2014, 07:45 PM
Tried using it at Asda today to pay for the shopping,it didn't seem to work can't think why :? :-?

Lanyard is the word you're looking for Beddie.

24-07-2014, 08:50 PM
If I am reading the FAQ correctly I can no longer let my friends daughter use my wifes season ticket when she cannot attend (e.g. night matches).

So far I am not seeing any real benefits to fans of these cards.

24-07-2014, 08:55 PM
You've never really been allowed to do it before, it's just now they can supposedly police it.

24-07-2014, 09:09 PM
If I was using a child ticket for an adult then I get them to pay the upgrade price. If I was using an adult ticket for a child, then I would just use it.

The reason I get a season ticket is because I want to reserve MY seat. It should be my right to use that seat how I wish if I paid full price for it.

Now the clubs wants me to give it back to them when I don't use it so they can sell it above the face value for pay on the gate entry, then give me a small percentage.

Sounds like skimming to me.

In the past, you were allowed to transfer a ticket. They put "non-transferable" on the terms and conditions, but then made it quite clear by their actions (ie. allowing you to pay extra to upgrade from a pensioner to an adult) that the tickets were allowed to be transferred. If they'd tried sueing you on the non-transferable grounds, they would have been laughed out of court.

Now? Who knows. But as they are allowing a number of paid-for upgrades, I don't see how they could object to a similar number of like-for-like swaps. And no-one's counting.

24-07-2014, 10:13 PM
What about fans that may have shared a season ticket for years? 2 season tickets between 4 lads that can't always attend so share is still great business for the club. A real shocker if this was prevented.

How exactly can they police it anyway?

I got mine delivered early this afternoon. I had also said that I will pick my ticket up after paying early bird prices but the card was still posted. Which was good.

Just one thing that occured to me when reading the leaflet that came with the ticket. It says that the card will be scanned at the turnstile where all your data can be viewed. Now judging by the stern attitude coming across on who they may consider as 'entering fraudulenty' then this looks to me it is going to more than a quick look at each ST holder. You are not now lobbing a ST stub through a cage and then charging through anymore. So if people turn up as usual 10 minutes before kick off they may be lucky to get seated before half time.

You have been warned. >:(

So get on early!
