Oh, and if the schedule means that another rotation gives an "unattractive" fixture to the same cohort. Then swap the cohorts.I would humbly suggest that you are making it rather complicated and a venturing into a NP problem
IMHO best to
1. Find out who won't attend. In fact, (email permitting) verify who will attend
2. Rotate those around games 1...n
3. Sit families/bubbles together
4. Fit in as many as possible using the max utilisation as permitted by the Govt.
5. Achieve 4) above on the basis of i) lounges and ii) General Admission
Don’t disagree with your sentiment but I think you maybe a tad optimistic in terms of the capability of our ticketing system.It would be good if after the fixtures are released tomorrow we can all enter preferences for games we’d like to attend but also put down those that we may want to be excluded from. Would be complicated to execute but may help avoid people being given fixtures that they potentially can’t get to. Maybe split the games in to Categories and we get to put a preference in for each to avoid the risk of some people getting all the juicy fixtures and others getting Barnsley, Luton, Rovrum etc.
It will be 30% of capacity, therefore 5,200 seats.11000 occupied seats? Im merely talking about determining which groups go to which games as I assume they will be spread over the entirety of the stadium? Or are you thinking a set capacity per stand based on takeup rate?

Not saying it's simple. BUT IT IS NOT HARD.
Sorry 11k occupied as in paid for not physically occupied. I think we are coming at it from the same angle despite my lack of clarity lolIt will be 30% of capacity, therefore 5,200 seats.
As for the rest, see my response above.
GA needs to be treated as one group (i.e. West, North, East, and all GA in the South Stand)
Yep beggers cant be choosers - be thankful of having the opportunity to go to games rather than worrying about which seat it is. There will be specific seats chosen up to available capacity and those will be allocated to people as seen fit - simples.I suspect you'll be given a seat, including in the away end.
Bit confused as to how you managed to book your seats last October!Life used to be fairly simple once upon a time!
Now there’s so many variations on a theme.
It’s nearly a year in October since I reserved my seats in LR. However, have by now got completely confused as to how I agreed to pay, and what I did pay in reserving them.
I sent an email to the reservations centre a while back about this, but no reply so will have to chase them up. Presumably no season tickets have been sent out yet?
There are so many things you have to get a handle on now. Last January I booked a holiday for about 4 months time. Paid a deposit, and now they are asking for a considerable balance to be paid.
However, the company cannot guarantee the holiday will happen, and the countries involved are in the government’s "do not travel" list.
So getting my head around when, how, and if I can go to the new stadium is just another thing added to the "totally confusing" list!
Anyone else feel the same?
If there is the slightest chance of watching any Brentford game I will. Even if I have to watch it through the bottom of a glass and it was freezing every few seconds I would still watch it.Nightmare for the ticket office to sort out.
Our 5 STs are from 5 different households, majority exiles.
Personally have no interest in watching games on a laptop, we got lucky recently when nearly all our games were televised but my idea of fun on a Sat afternoon is not getting the laptop out, I'd rather follow it with Jeff & co.
Don't want any refunds so will just pass on ifollow pass to nephew who is a member.
Roll on the season after this.
Consolation is that we're now seen as a player at this level so will likely get plenty of live sky games again
He doesn’t mention how many games he does go to though. If he hasn’t been for years then not going for the next 5-10 games isn’t going to be an issue for him.'Cos how can he possibly be a 'real' supporter unless he can afford a season ticket, right !!!
Back to the endless discussion on 'loyalty'. The club has to draw a line somewhere and it's not going to please everyone.on points ? or had a ST for last 5 years?
Agree. With 11,000 ST holders how many 'die hards' are now likely not to have an ST? I know loads of 'die hards' and they are all ST holders.Back to the endless discussion on 'loyalty'. The club has to draw a line somewhere and it's not going to please everyone.
There's always a few who say that they turn up and pay cash and, therefore, there is no record of them ever attending but they went to every game, home and away, since Barrow in the Cup. Quite frankly, that's been impossible in the last couple of seasons and the writing's been on the wall for that time, at least. A few will miss out but life is going to be tough until we get to universal vaccine and, even then, if we're on the trajectory we all hope for, getting a ticket is still going to be a real challenge unless you're already in the mix.
