I live on the other side of the city and any commute doesn't involve going past the stadium.
Could anybody who does pass regularly or even anyone who has recently walked nearby confirm the state of the proposed ticket office?

Currently still in build. Looks good, but it's well hidden away behind the steps/wall from Home - Away end.

It's round be the train station, so not sure where you'll park when you want to nip into the shop.

What i dont understand is that CBS have embarled upon a multi million pound 10 year sponsorship deal, yet over 2 weeks into this deal, the whole place is plastered still in Ricoh signage.


Thats going to look a bit pikey if we get to opening weekend and its still looking like that

Sure the club said it’s doesn’t become *officially* the CBSA until a certain date (may have already passed)

Assumed the delay between the announcement and the official changeover date was so they could get the signage ready. CBS seem pretty relaxed about it, makes you wonder how much they've actually paid. If I'd forked out millions I wouldn't be too happy.

I would suggest that Wasps and CBS seem to moving at a pace that suits them and in reality the first deadline is the start of the football season then the rugby season. It's Wasps house and their issue and it shouldn't affect anybody on here.

You'd think they'd try and be in and set up ready for the Forest game surely?
The shop might be up and running but ticket office a little later, unless they get their finger out and finnish it sooner.

In the club shop isn’t it? That’s supposed to be opening on 30th July with the general release of the kits

The question was about the ticket office, more computers ect to set up. The shop, merchandise etc, so could be open sooner.

Is it really such a massive deal?
No they havent been in the same area for years the ticket office has had 3 locations 4 if you count the City Centre.
The shop has generally been pretty poor over the last few seasons.
never held them back too much.

Remember the Cathedral Lanes one? That's old school.

Where in Cathedral Lanes was it? Only things I remember in there was the massive book shop and the little record shop (Way Ahead?) at the back.

And a shop called 'Games Workshop' where goths painted little figurines and growled at you if you looked at them.
