It’s all nonsense, but what I don’t agree with is 2 tickets per ST holder. That means people who don’t usually go etc can possibly get one, plus ST holders who can’t get into later may have missed out.

Agree, but sympathize with the club on how to administer this. If it was 1 per ST, and ST holders could enter a ballot for any leftover tickets (also 1 per ST) folk who got the extra ticket wouldn’t end up with their friends/family.
Ultimately the situation is due to rangers not budging on the away allocation.

There are more season ticket holders than tickets available, so it just seems unfair that folk are able to purchase a ticket for other folk. Get your point about wanting seated with someone, however when you look at clubs like Man Utd, who have up to 20,000 fans at once entering into a ballot for 3,000 away tickets, if they want to go to the game enough they’ll sit next to any Ayr fan. Just my thoughts.

And no, I’m not jealous as I’ve not got a ticket before anyone asks :lol: been offered 2 though! Had no interest in the game in Feb and not interested in this one.

See most of the Rangers tickets if not all will have sold out by the end of today, i'm one of many who'll miss out due to not having a season ticket, game isn't even on BT so will either have to resort to home end or Rangers TV.
Still irritates me that SPFL do f**k all to intervene or have a rule in place regarding ticket allocation, will be more annoyed if it gets to the night of the game and ibrox is only half full.
There will be live stream, don't worry about that 2nd option.

Lets hope the Gerrard effect doesn't run out before we play them and there is a full house, take a tanking and the money

I'm a season ticket holder and I have no interest in going, the folk I regularly go with are the same, I'm sure some will have made it to general sale.

Noticed rangers ticket website doesn't even have any mention of the game yet, just plastered everywhere about their Europa games.

The idea that hundreds of season ticket holders aren't proper fans just because they don't go to all the away games is banterific.

The season ticket rule was the fairest way of minimising the amount of part-timers who only go to the big games getting their hands on the limited number of tickets. It's not ideal but if it was a complete free-for-all then there'd be far more "gloryhunters" getting tickets.

No it isn't, this is my 1st season ticket but I've always had a problem with how non ST holders who attend on a regular basis have the same standing as Rangers fans or fans of any other club ie no standing, how hard can it be to keep a database of those professing to be Ayr fans or handing out vouchers.

If I hadn't bought a season ticket my 50 years would have less standing than someone who's just decided they're an Ayr fan due to last seasons goals.

I've got a spare for anyone who's interested in PMing me, it will only be going to a name I or mine recognise.

The Bellrock is really starting to get on my tits.

No wonder, have they been running a bus for 30 years or just a few games.

The "Gerrard effect" is a media fantasy. Fortunately their idiot fans lap it all up and will turn out in droves for the game.

True...I'm sure i read somewhere that with the exception of scraping into the Europa groups, Gerrards record is the same as Caixinia's (sp?) so far?

Did we actually sell out yesterday or are there still tickets available today? Can't see any updates.
I think there may be some left. Pretty sure there was around a 100 or so remaining at close to closing yesterday.

How on earth do you expect the club to keep a database of every fan’s personal info? And how on earth do you expect fans to be okay with being on such a database?

This method is always used. Season ticket holders always have priority for tickets even if people disagree. It's the same at most clubs.
The only reason this scenario is different is due to the small allocation given by rangers. The argument is solely with that circus and shouldn't be with our club. I don't remember there being much complaint about season ticket holders having first dibs at any previous sale that went onto a general sale afterwards.
I'm not a season ticket holder myself and was accepting that I'd likely miss out. Luckily a friend had a spare

I don’t believe the issue is ST holders getting first dibs, it’s them getting 2 tickets. That means they can buy a ticket for a non ST holder. Even if ST holders only got one ticket, there was still a slim chance of a general sale. With 2 there was never a chance and 400/500 ST holders would also miss out on a ticket to non ST holders.

I agree the 2 tickets thing isn't very fair, despite the fact that I am one of the lucky non ST holders that is recieving a ticket from a ST holder friend.
However the tickets were distributed there would have been complaints and some would have felt it unfair.
I guess maybe the club thought that ST holders could get 2 tickets and give one to a fellow fan who isn't a ST holder. Seems daft to give away 2 but I suppose that's the way it's always been done.

88 tickets left.
Maybe for the 88 they should have just made it a general sale. Absolute chaos

So how would this database work? Mainly how would it differentiate between who goes regularly or not.

How would vouchers be handed out? At a one off away game - you then have the same issue as people could just have attended a singular away game and got a voucher whereas those who might have had a season ticket for decades miss out. It’s a lose lose for the club really.

I have a season this year, didn’t last year but still attended most weeks - would it have been annoying if there was a similar situation last year? Probably, but I don’t think there is a better way of doing it. I do agree that one let season ticket holder would probably have been better however.


I very much doubt there is anyone who has decided to become an Ayr fan after last seasons goals.

Also, the boy from the Bellrock is an absolute weapon - it’s just not physically possible for most people above the age of 25 with responsibilities to attend away games regularly.

This was always going to become an 'I'm a better fan than you' debate, no matter what the club did.

I'm a ST Holder, I have a ticket for Ibrox, and I freely admit that this will be the first away game I've attended this season. Some folk may have a problem with that, but having seen us get pumped home and away by village diddies multiple times throughout my 20 years of supporting Ayr, I don't think I need to justify myself to anyone.
