In Topic: Sfa Own Goal?

17 July 2014 - 09:52 PM

I would say that this whole season ticket idea is an experiment by the SFA. They know the SSC is popular and the way the loyal fans like to assure themselves of tickets but some money-grabbing prat amongst them has pointed out they are only get £50 to start with. This season ticket scheme strikes me as a pre-cursor to the way they want to peddle their tickets ie assure that those SSC members are hounded/frightened into getting season tickets meaning the SFA then get possibly far more money from one member than they get just now as some pick and choose the games they attend. It is wrong, it is badly planned, badly released and a terrible way to repay long standing loyal fans for supporting Scotland through the very many bad times in recent years.

As I understand it SSC members (with or without season tickets) are guaranteed their home tickets as tickets will go on sale to SSC members prior to going on public sale in any case. It is just a woefully released details about season tickets from the SFA that has caused panic.

Well if you think about it logically you'd work out they'd have to still keep that sales window open a few weeks prior to each match for SSC members to get their tickets. Certainly not all of the SSC members will buy season tickets (perhaps only a small percentage) so they'd run the risk of losing lots of SSC members sales guaranteed by the current system for what? The SFA have very poorly released details on season tickets without explaining it properly ....bad job by them. In any case I am well nigh certain the basic provisio of being an SSC member was that you were guaranteed home tickets so there is no way they could take that away from you as it is a sort of breach of terms and conditions if you see what I mean when we paid our £50. I may buy the season ticket though as I intend on being at all of the games if possible.

In Topic: End Of The Road For Hampden?

Just reading up on Hampden's history. Around the 1980's I find it odd that Murrayfield and Hampden were looking to extensively redevelop their stadiums. Murrayfield managed this with private funding but not Hampden and a lot of Hampden's renovations over ran the budget. Pity private funding couldn't have been obtained for Hampden.

I am sitting here thinking that surely there must be some modicum of money in the pot to revamp Hampden (even cosmetically to bump capacity up to 60,000). I mean as Hampden is a key venue for the Commonwealth games then surely revenue of some sort will come the stadium's way? So what is happening to that money?
