    Anyone in club Coventry stand, I am taking the kids so sat over there for first time (apart from Richard shaw testimonial!!) my tickets are not together. Is this normal in the padded section?

    Minus the buffer zone in the South Stand, must be 1,500 in there.

    No not normally, it's probably because it's going to be busy, you could wait until kick off and SEE if there are any seats together !

    You would like to think people might be able to budge about to make sure a family could sit together if there's small kids!

    It just means 12,000 shouting SHOOOOT and 8,000 shining their phone light across the ground to each other.

    Yes there is, smart casual, so as long as your not looking like a tramp you'll be fine.

    As for no club tops, when I've seen people with City tops on, in Club Coventry, not seen anyone who has been asked to remove them .

    It's good to see a large crowd and I'm not knocking it, far from it, but there are some annoying little downsides.

    Entry will be slow because people don't know how to use the ticket scanners, especially print-at-home tickets.
    People will be sat in our seats
    After 10 minutes dad will be sent to bring back food and drinks
    10 minutes later dad will have to take someone to the toilet

    ... and worst of all, when a 75 year-old with a prostate has to go for a pee at half time there will be a queue of people leaving the toilet entrance and entering the toilet exits.

    At least we'll see some retro CCFC shirts

    It's pretty poor that, tickets only £5 but we've only sold a few thousand.

    It might be the optimist in me, but I would imagine as the time gets closer it will pick up. I know they're only a fiver but it's just been Christmas and January is a hard month for many, so some are more than likely waiting for late January payday to get it all sorted.

    I hope they don't print off those sheets again with song words etc. They made me do a bit of a cringe.

    Booked a couple of tickets in the Premier lounge up on the balcony. Is the entrance through the Atrium instead of turnstiles for all hospitality?

    Yes go in the Atrium and walk straight ahead . Two people will be checking tickets and they will show you the stairs to go up. Its nice up there but a bit far away from the pitch for me tho. Enjoy it with the money men lol. You will probably bump into Fisher up there as he is alway around.

    Birthday weekend so I’ve gone for it with the padded seats balcony car park.... hoping for a better experience than last birthday...still miffed about last year because for my 50th I paid for all the family to have a meal etc and then they made Accrington a community day so I paid shit loads more than everyone else.... then we lost. I’m not bitter at all though

    My match package has expired and I've had issues buying tickets. The guy at the ticket office said you can only buy tickets if block 16 if your taking a kid. Is this true?

    Are they trying to make this a family area now?
