So if for example for one off games i.e. boxing day, new years day or the more important games you want to bring a relative who's not a BWFC fan but who wants to watch the game - do they have to be a member or can a member / ST holder buy 2 or 3 tickets without the others being a member ?

They have to become a member to get a ticket. The membership expires at the end of this season so we all have to renew after this season to get tickets for next season.

Well IMO that's bollocks & will stop any floating fans from attending - so if a casual fan or a non supporting BWFC fan wanting to attend a game with an existing ST holder they have to register as a member of BWFC even if they are not necessarily a fan.

Big brother gone mad, just because a few idiots lobbed a couple of plastic bottles at Wigan players who incited said fans. The club must be relatively well off if they can do without well behaved casual fans wanting to attend 2 or 3 games a season. Surely if a ST holder buys a couple of extra tickets every now & then they can still trace this back to the ST holder if anyone causes any trouble in the seats that the ST has purchased.

Not impressed, I won't be registering as they already have my details as a ST holder, therefore if that means that I can't get a ST next season then the club will lose that cash - all for the sake of a couple of plastic bottles !

Its fucked. Not letting me buy a stockport ticket, despite being a member.

Unfortunately, you don't have the correct permissions on your account to purchase this event. Take a look at our Membership Options.

Worked fine for the 7 of us that I sorted out memberships yesterday but didn't work on the one I'd sorted today as a member. Might only activate overnight or summat like that. Was easily sorted in one email to ticket office though.

Only thing different for me was had to assign every seat to someone who had a ST (or membership I presume).

Which I do as a matter of course anyway ever since those Fleetwood and Burton games the other year when folk needed to prove how many away games they had attended (plus I tend to buy during STH priority anyway I suppose)

Think it’s a load of bollox this. Seems a bar to getting a ticket, strange decision by good business folk to actively discourage folk from attending. 

I think it’s to actively discourage certain folk from going.

Just a wild and crazy thought but, if I were planning on attending with my little buddies all clad in certain types of clobber (bought by mummy and daddy) and being a pain in the arse (chucking stuff, goading the away support then running off etc.) it's just conceivable I wouldn't be sat or stood in the seat allotted on my ticket.

Also, stuff like National I.D. - 'control of the masses' type stuff is more palatable during normal(ish) times, we relinquish at our peril as we don't know how they will be used/abused down the line.

That said folk freely give minute detail on everything willingly these days.

If Snapchat required a QR Code tattooed on one's cock or tits folk would demur to it.

The whole thing is very Des McBain, a massive step backwards, stick a spiked fence up next, Ken Bates style.

I don't like the whole narrative of all football fans being guilty when a few misbehave.
