Maybe Chelsea have decided to take fewer tickets. We may have offered them 1600 on Sale or Return or 3000 on Guaranteed Sales. So perhaps being a small club they are concerned at not selling-out :cool:

Apparently one of their better known fans - Whisper From The Shed told them that's all they needed :fishing: ;)

Mathew can take his boat. Wonder if he could put a few up 👍

Not sure a river Thames house boat is equipped for the journey and if he loses his Bankside location on return big risk

So? The plan was always for more Brentford fans, but if they stop coming they can up the away capacity which couldn’t be done at GP.

The original design of the staduim allowed upto a maximum of 7,000 away fans (depending who we playing) but our plans later changed and we ended up with a smaller staduim but with more "premium seats".

Why do we want more away fans?

I read that we only have (only) sold 1300 premium season tickets. We have nearly 3000 premium seats. I let you decide, yellow wise one.

*if the numbers above are incorrect, I'm sure you will correct me*
Where did you read this?

I read that it was 12.

In other words, you don't know how many we did sell to genuine bees. But complain about the number of away supporters in the South Stand (Brighton/Arsenal) causing tensions/frustrations.

Am I correct?

Hold on. You are claiming we sold (only) 1300 Premium Seats. You first claimed that you read it, then you claimed that you "understood" it?

Where did you get the figure of 1,300 from?

Tell us where you got 1,300 from please.

That’s the tickets available to fans. The other 80 or so might have been taken by players/staff/sponsors.
And then end up on ticket sites for more than ten times the price.

I'd love to know which lounges we'd put 1700 more people in.

I think they are pretty full already!

Well, given all this, shouldn't Loftus Dumps capacity be about 8k ?

From my observations just as a fan, not an architect. There does seem to be a lot of wasted space on various areas of the stadium where potentially another few hundred could be seated without too much of a problem. I’m sure there are a few on here who are qualified and could offer an opinion if this could be done.

The two lounge areas at each end with the huge dwell areas by the exit to pitchside it seems have been specifically designed for rugby.

We need one of those fan sofas like at Charlton would add a couple to the capacity.

Isn't it unlikely the that we will ever actually get a 17800 capacity because of the segregation area? Would be good to know what the actual 'usable' capacity is.

And seats for the Press another couple of rows behind away team dug out . Season Ticket holder having to move to accommodate. It maybe only a couple of dozen but there is an effect
