Appreciate that a lot of this has been covered in the Leicester ticketing thread (perhaps those posts should be moved here?) but the biggest frustrations I currently have with the ticketing system (apart from Away fans being able to get their hands on tickets in the home areas by continuing to purchase memberships which makes the below even worse.............) are a s follows:
  • Being told a ticket is 'no longer available' when you have selected it and gone straight to your basket to pay. Surely once selected, no-one else should also be able to select it, and you should have x minutes to complete the purchase, before it is re-released for selection?
  • The ground overview map showing blocks that apparently have availability, but when you go to the 'select seat' option no available seats are displayed.
  • Inability to purchase a single seat if it's next to another due to 'orphan seat' rule. Surely once there are limited numbers available this rule should be disabled?

I know I should know this, but I can't find any info on the BFC website.
Be kind.

The tickets that are put up for sale on Ticket Exchange, do they get listed on the BFC ticketing website and you just keep logging on as a member on the BFC ticketing website and buy from there if available? You don't actually buy from the Ticket Exchange site.

Trying to call the ticket phoneline.
In the queue, nice psychedelic music, 'thank you for your patience', round and round and round, getting close to the front (4th is best so far) ..... then nothing.
Silence.
Time and time again.
Anyone else have the same issues?
Anyone know a solution please?

Yes, someone has reported this to me via WhatsApp. They only got to 5th though.

In my account it's still giving me the option to put it on the exchange.
Have sent an email, if I don't get a reply I think a trip to the box office may be the best option.

Received an email today, to say my ticket had been sold on the exchange.
Only problem is I haven't put one up for sale.

You haven't listed your ticket for any matches?

All sorted now.

Turns out it was one of my F & F members who put his Norwich ticket on there.

Thanks for the info, the club are working on improving the emails so we will check if this one is on the list.

Including the name of the ticket holder shouldn't be too difficult.

Did you all buy your Season Tickets together? And if so were you the purchaser?

Sure this one has reared head before. Went to purchase tickets on membership but put security code of card in wrong and then rather than let you try and enter again it says order not fulfilled and in progress.

Get an email 15 minutes saying tickets cancelled and now sold out

Tried to rectify quickly by calling box office but no answer

Finally got through at my fourth attempt today :)
First three calls were with my 'smart' phone but each time the call was 'dropped'.
Went 'old school' with my land-line for the 4th go and worked a treat.
Suggest others go that route and advise if I was just lucky or not.

Felt sorry for the poor bloke on the end, he must meet a lot of frustrated fans.

The service on the phone has been really good, patient and helpful each time I’ve used it. The website has been good enough and improving that I’ve bought Villa, Wolves, Burnley, Stoke and Everton tickets online

I feel sorry for the fans the club should have had this sorted a long time ago

Hi there has anyone managed to get their tickets for a match with the QR code on the fanscore Bees App?

No, that isn't in use yet.

Many thanks for reply, my friend uses it for the rugby so assumed we could as well.

I've tried it and it really isn't ready for wider use, would be interesting to know if it's our implementation or FanScore itself but it was an appallingly bad user experience.
