    Is that 20K sold or does it include the 12K free school tickets and ST Holders?

    Gillingham must think the Ricoh is sold out every week.

    Somebody is already whinging it is misleading that they have said the crowd tops 20,000 because some are free. It says this in the article:

    Pretty shit attempt at trying to mislead that they have all been sold.

    its no different to what our landlords do, I would welcome it for more home games but i dont think we are allowed.

    Get the kids going regularly and brain wash them into supporting us,

    its what happened to me....

    I had a season ticket as I’ve bored everyone fookless on here until my old dad died.
    Couldn’t face going on my own but this season my daughter who is 14 wanted to go so have been given a fair few freebies. These are tickets that if they are not used the club will stop issuing them to the person kind enough to give them to us.
    For this my daughter now wants one for next season and instead of relying on freebies I will buy two season tickets gladly to carry on the tradition that my old dad would love to of seen.
    So it’s a good thing and hope many do the same!

    absolutely.

    My lad was given 3 free tickets for our local ice hockey team. He now has an annual pass...

    I've spent way way more money than i want to think about supporting CCFC over the years, purely because my primary school was given free tickets and i was taken for several games when i was 10

    I think she could be a JSB until she is 16 anyway so a season ticket is probably free (might need to check if its free between 14-16) ;)

    Sweet will order my ticket Tommorow. Luv to see Ricoh full. Hopefully we can hit 25k plus

    We should set aside 5k free for schools every week. Not sure it would cost us if we were never gonna sell them anyway?

    It’s more than free but very competitive. Like £40 or something

    Don't see how anyone can moan about this. Not like they're making out its a sell out, being totally up front about how many freebies there are.

    Annoyed Gillinghsm get benefit of £5 and a roof after I paid £22 to get pissed wet through yet again at their hell hole this season. Treating away fans like they do is a joke.

    Don’t know what you’re complaining about - they gave us free ponchos after we’d had a free cold shower - bargain!!

    Not at all but it’s pretty crap that if we’ve got 12K free, 5K STs then we’ve only managed to sell 3K tickets when they are £5 each.

    Good idea to get the young ones involved but a bit of a con last year to “create” a new L2 record of 28000 when only about 18000 actually took their seats.

    this is a fantastic opportunity to take your kids to their first game without the pressure of the day, if they don't enjoy it you can leave when ever and what have you lost, a fiver parking.
    i'm taking my nephew and brother in law ( nephew "supports" Leicester but he's only 6) trying to convert them both to sky blue

    Put it on the table and get a straw long enough to reach.
