It's still the same principle, and paper tickets are available for people without the ticket account. They have been on sale at Somerset since last week and will continue to be. As it happens I was able to buy a ticket for the December game at Palmerston at our club shop.

The biggest difference is that your turnstile operators don't scan the tickets, but they are still cashless. 

Yes, I cannot understand why people are looking for problems with this new system when in fact it is moving us ahead of other clubs. The club should be applauded for investing in it.

Surely it is football that has been an anachronism, with fans directly handing over cash to turnstile operators? When you go the cinema you don't hand over your cash to someone standing outside Screen 4 - you buy the ticket in advance (which can be online, or at a kiosk in the building). Same with music concerts. You can pay with cash in all these cases if you want, but you can also offer other payment methods very easily. The country has seen "peak cash" as described in this article and it is great that our club is supporting greater choice in how we purchase our tickets.

The system has other advantages for all fans - giving special offers such as price reductions to mid-week fixtures for those attending on a Saturday become far easier to do administratively, as does handling rare scenarios such as games postponed after kick-off due to bad weather and so on. I don't know how well the system the club has purchased supports these scenarios of course, but the technology certainly enables it in principle.

The technology is only one part of it however, and I do hope that the club has thought through the logistics carefully so that it doesn't get a bad reputation on day 1.

Just tried to buy a ticket online. The link in the match preview just directs you to Stranraer tickets, so currently unable to buy tickets for tomorrow.

Yeah SRE currently having a meltdown over tickets for tomorrow, kinda glad i'm missing this one as it's likely to descend into a farce with hardly anyone in before the game. especially with a big away support also probably going to the shop before the game to get a ticket.

Was that ecome [email protected] not there? Well I was, those that were will have heard some very good answers to questions I asked the gaffer. Not only that but put my cash where my mouth is although I stopped from bidding anymore than £1k for a bottle of whiskey. I can see Ayr United being owned by the majority of people there last night with someone like Mark Pettigrew controlling the day to day business accumin. Be funny to see the questions on Au media but that chicken pakora was immense.

Just tried the ticket link there - it looks like you are clicking to buy for the Stranraer game but when you select the ticket and go to basket it's Falkirk right enough

Going to my first game of the season today and looking forward to seeing the new look team . Any ideas on the formation ? Will Muirhead and Geggan start in the defence ? Id think with Connor Sammon showing up big Muirhead would be a must . Midfield ? McCowan ,Murdock ,Kelly  and one of about five  possibilities (Doc ,Aldo ,Frank the Tank , Kerr) ! Anyway can't wait to get into the old place and see another Ayr side  entertain on a summer's afternoon .

  Got a paper ticket as my online link seems goosed ! Not going to be a huge amount of cup games so no real hardship to go into the shop and by a ticket for my usual seat .

Hurstys right. Just click the match preview link and scroll past the Stranraer bit and instead add a ticket to the basket. It should say vs Falkirk.

That’s a bit harsh 😉

Unfortunately I couldn’t make it

Just bought my ticket but there’s no attachment. Logged into total tickets and there’s no QR code anywhere that I can see?

[mention=65463]Robbo63[/mention]

I had the same problem, but I have the QR Code on total tickets so might just use that.

 

When you're logged into total tickets, go to my packages, tick the box on the falkirk one and then click the little eye icon. Should work.

Aye.  It just the webpage layout that isnt the best - it looks like the Stranraer bit is the heading for the page you are on, but its actually a link to take you to that game.

I bought a ticket and there was no attachment, tried to log in to total tickets and it said my password was wrong, its the one I have saved in my browser, never changed it. tried the password reset link and its not sending me a link to a password re-set.

Only a phone number to contact total tickets.

I accept there will be teething problems but I hope the club haven't chosen some fly-by-night amateurs as partners on this.

McCall didn’t say a huge amount we don’t know already.

Did say he’s targeting a right back and striker, although a lot is dependant on today’s result.

Looking for a more physical striker in the loan market, he’ll most likely come from down south.

Admits the loan market isn’t ideal but it’s very much dependant on the attitude of the individual.

The total ticket link on the email takes you to the main site and my login details didn't work, I had to go through the Ayr United ticket specific link and my login worked.

The total ticket email sends you a temporary password to login the first time, then you can change it once you’re in. Unless you’ve used total ticket before you mean?

I bought 5 for the Stranraer game only the one ticket shoes in the total ticket thing but the rest were all emailed to me with the QR codes no doubt it's going to be a learning process for the fans and the club
