At this rate, most away ends will be full on the 7th Aug.

Great to see.
Hartlepool's away stand hold about 25 does it?

I'll be honest and say I'm hoping we can crack the 100 away fans per game (on average) this season...but I'm not betting on it.

Think hartlepool away end holds around 900 only a few clubs will fill that. Doubt we will taken anymore than 250.

I think that’s the single saddest sentence I’ve read on here since I turned Devon Lad’s drivel off.

I just have a feeling that Crawley's attendances are going to drop this season.

Lots of posts about watching iFollow, worries about covid infection and also the decimation of our local economy by covid (ie my company has gone from 160 to 30 people after redundancies). These could be major impacts on an already small fan base.

I think we are still going to have the 3rd farthest distance to travel this season as well.

700 sold for Exeter - about 400 remaining. Just gone in general sale!

Imagine we’ll fetch around 1,000 for the 600 mile-round journey.

All 648 away tickets Harrogate finally put on sale today at 16:00 were sold by 16:45, so that’s our first away attendance in advance :2thumb:.

Allocation of 600 for Sutton at FGR

The FGR site says *initial* allocation of 600 (of which 400 are the open terrace), Even though it seems improbable that the full 1,200+ capacity there to sell out (we've sold it out for the Bristol City cup game, but previously I think only Swindon and possibly Argyle have filled it out) , it seems a bit weird that we'd not be prepared for more away fans if they came - I don't think I've ever seen part of that stand closed off during an EFL game, and it's not as if it'd require substantially more stewards.

I'm intruiged to see how busy the trains are Saturday and going forward, as the prices are taking the piss right now.

£60 return to Manchester on Saturday for Salford - Thats with a two together railcard with my mate.

Next away game is Carlisle and my mate can't go (Only game he plans on missing) and its around £100 on the train on the day. Having said that, back in 2011 we played Carlisle away on Easter Monday and I had to pay around that back then. Usually got it recently for around £50.

I’m curious as to how many Bradford will let us have come next weekend. First away game in fucking donkeys that we can actually attend in person, and the fact there’s a movement amongst our fanbase this season to sack off BP and just go to away games tells me it will sell out quickly. Just hope it’s not a farty amount.

Suspect Bradford will top the away numbers by the end of the season with us or Bristol Rovers battling for 2nd. Vale may be up there depending on how they fare on the pitch.

I can’t see any reason why you wouldn’t be allocated the the maximum capacity, which is usually 2,800ish. If demand is there, we can always move a block of home fans in the Midland Road end, which would take the allocation up to 3,100. We haven’t had to do that since Sunderland - 3 years ago.

Always difficult to predict how well you’ll travel, especially after what’s been happening relative to COVID. Everyone over this side of the Pennines’ is expecting a decent season. I imagine we’ll average somewhere between 1,300-1,600 - possibly more, depending on performance.

I think our numbers will be light for our first away league game. Been to Colchester before and it’s a miserable experience so definitely not going again. I’m waiting for Crawley on August 28th.

Usually take 4/500 to col u so be interesting to see how they hold up

Just looked, 428 and 480 last two times, also both played in August which allows a good comparison as to whether we’ll flock to costa del Colchester

Forest have given us an initial allocation of 998. Our lot reckon we’ll fetch 2,000, but I can’t see it.

Tickets are priced at £5-£10!

We've pre sold around 450 tickets for our game at Stevenage tomorrow, with them available to buy on the turnstile tomorrow, which I imagine there will be a few that do. That's pretty decent for us.

Over 700 sold for Forest next Wednesday. Second allocation ordered. Looks like we might fetch 2,000 after all.

pretty embarrassing that we've not sold out tbh. Can't go cos of a wedding, not sure what the rest of our fans who could easily make this game's excuses are.
