Put the line in the sand right here and now. If we accept these prices then we will have to take this kind of crap forever. Don’t attend.
Will have to get this in many groups and just not here for it to really happen and club to take notice

We put up with crap food and drink at premium prices and that is unlikely to change, what makes you think this has legs. I hope you are right. I can see lots of Chelsea in home areas at this game.

So do we buy today and hope we pay a lower amount, or is it being sorted before tickets go on sale this arvo?

Feels like we’re trying to come up with a new shambles every match!

Trying to charge 70 year olds £50 for a ticket in some areas. Absolutely disgusting.
This is the same as every category A league game though? Ie the same as Chelsea in the league, Man U and Liverpool too etc.
Are you outraged because season ticket holders aren't being protected from the expensive match ticket prices that members have to keep paying this season?
Or because it's Christmas?

edit - apparently the boycott was a success already. well done everyone.

I'm still not paying 30 quid! Will stream this one.
fair enough. However its the quarter final of one of the 3 premier competitions against the European Champions. I for one do not want to miss it. I have waited decades for the kind of games we are now experiencing and I will never get used to it nor do I want to.

We play in the same league as them now.

On that basis any cup game against PL opposition is a nuisance and a duplication. Like others I am more than happy to pay £15 on top of my travel and hotel. Personal choice but I will not have a special season soured for me by all the bitching and moaning going on.

That’s fine but the bitching and moaning as you so put by some has saved some fans a lot of money in the long run.

Not many people can afford to spend on a hotel for the game either.

£40 would be a p*ss take but personally think £30 seems about right.

What would you consider a reasonable price?

Personally, I think £30 is at the high end of what's acceptable.
If away fans don’t have to pay £30 for tickets I don’t think we should have to either, but we all blindly let it happen.

Chelsea charge 25 quid adults 12 quid children for league cup games


pretty reasonable and set prices for all of the cup games so the fans know what they will have to pay instead of us who send out a price list and then change it because imo they were dipping their toe in the water to see what the reaction would be on this occasion the water was too hot and their toe got burnt

the person in charge of the ticket office should be removed from his post pronto it has been a fiasco all season

Fully transparent. This is what we need to see.

Ok but people would have complained if we had charged £25 for Forest Green and for Oldham…

Good, well done.
Each make their own decisions on where they spend their money.

I’m intrigued to know how whoever is in charge of ticketing has kept their job after the repeated fiascos all season so far. And it’s only November.

Incredible. Just incredible.

I think a fair few may be in this category, but as a member can't say I would've paid the same as I did to watch the league game as I'd be very surprised if either sided fielded full teams, regardless of it being a cup QF

This could be a comms error, not the ticketing guys.

The person in charge of the ticket office would not have set the prices. The issue is this:

Were they dipping their toes in the water with the earlier announced prices or was this a genuine cock-up.

For a game that will likely go on sale to all members, only charging £10 would make this game heaven for all the ticket touts.

Don't see the problem with £30. It's fair. We charged less for the earlier rounds. This is a QF of a national cup. I think more than enough people will be okay with that.
The issue was it wasn’t £30 when first released it was between £40-£50 and only now have they dropped the prices.

Given that @hobbsy posted last week he expected prices to be in line with Cat A games I suspect the former

Is this boycott still on, and does it include Sloane Square? Thanks.

Doesnt matter who the oppo is, its th round your in.
And as much as it may be a QF, those prices arent justified.
What were they planning to charge if we progressed further

Wouldn’t Chelsea need to agree the prices so we can’t quickly change them w*lly nilly?
