Won't be any issue getting tickets. Actually I think I will go for the cheapest as you seemed to get the best view from the upper tiers.

Yes that's spot on. For Swansea it was 2 tickets per ST initially then 1 per member but as has been said it went to general sale.

Prices don't look too dissimilar from 2011 from what I remember.

Soz bru, no candoosville. I will buy you a beer to pass over the fence in the torch, though.

I was completely over the moon with the Arsenal semi-final seats when I booked them, then someone posted up where the drummer was sitting and it was right next to me :| Can we have some sort of warning this time please.

If true then this will go to general sale. Thats more than we had for the Arsenal semi final and we didn't sell out for that

Was only 1 per season ticket for the Arsenal game though. Think if its 2 per season ticket it will make a difference.

Even if it is 2 per STH then we still won't sell out before general sale i don't reckon

It was something like 3 tickets per member towards the end?

I managed to buy 9 tickets I think.

I honestly can't see us selling 38,000 tickets, regardless of how the sales process works. Going to Wembley is less of a novelty than what is was the last couple of times.

They should defo make it 2 per ticket.. It will put people off going that they won't be able to sit together.. So many empty seats at the arsenal game

Based on what, eventually, happened for the Arsenal game I think they should seriously consider 3 per ST and 2 per Member card (with some points to ensure that those of us who are regulars get in first). That way we can sit in groups of friends and there is an increased likelihood of selling a lot of tickets.

Exactly, i've already had about 5 p/t Reading fans ask if i can sort tickets, if i were able to sort 2/3 on season tickets and member cards i'd be buying 10/15 tickets at once.. as it is, i'm gonna sort mine, and my m8s will have to sort their own as and when they become available..

If it is 1 per STH, that makes no sense to me whatsoever. Surely they know friends and family would like to sit together?

I want to go with about 4 mates and 2 of them are STH's and the other two have around the same points as me. Would be shit if we were split up and sat with strangers

Not doing multiple per STH doesn't stop you sitting together though. You just buy a bit later in the process. There will be tickets enough for everyone, stop getting worried about nothing !

But personally it would make my life easier if they allowed about a dozen per STH !

Who remembers the many page long argument we had about this for the Arsenal game? :D

Back then I was on the side of only 1 ticket per STH as I assumed we would sell out and it's simply not fair that someone with no points gets a seat over a member - even if it that means you can't sit with family/friends who don't care about RFC for the rest of the year.

But as we blatantly won't sell out with 38,000 then we might as well let STH's buy as many as they want.

If it's Reading vs Huddersfield, Wembley will be half-empty.
