Villa tickets arrived within 2 days. This has how it has been for years
Indeed. The recent pile-on the Royal Mail just doesn't make sense. All of my regular mail now arrives on time (various subs etc.)

I reckon that the club has withdrawn into its shell, but it doesn't help supporters.

I'm told that there is a recruitment drive for at least another 3 to be drafted into the Ticket Office. Hopefully after that we will see a return to normality.

This is such a sh*tshow however. What's changed in selling away tickets compared with 2 seasons ago.....it's not as if there's been a massive increase in away tickets. It's 3,000 now and it was about the same the last time we were allowed outside our houses.

Yeah, cos there were certainly 3000+ clamouring for Wigan, Rotherham, Hull,...

Ordered a online ticket first day of availability 16th August.....still not arrived...
Just noticed this morning "Shipment status " says... "not sent" .... what a cockup system. I only live one mile from ground. Sort it Brentford.

Have the Villa away tickets sold out? There’s no option to buy when I log into that ******** website 😡
Did you wait until just after 3pm to buy your ticket, just so you could have another moan?

What happened to the GPGs ticket guy who went to work for Swansea was it? Then Wembley stadium? He was good, could we poach him back?

for the last time....ANYONE who wants a ticket for villa away WILL GET ONE......3k is plenty sufficient for this game ;) most who do the aways have been there at least twice and its not on the big list for this season.....save youre worrying for how many taps you got for west ham, spurs, chelsea, arsenal, man utd, liverpool, everton, leicester and watford......every other game you should be ok for ;)

yet another daft question (and very O/T) but you’ve not included Brighton on that list. Do Brentford fans usually go big for Boxing Day games? I’d written off the chance of going and was going to try and get in the home end cos my lass lives there, but maybe the away end will be a go’er for ST holders with minimal taps, like Villa has been?

Personally, I think you’ll be fine for a ticket for Brighton.

Called the club up yesterday for another reason and asked how many tickets left for Villa and was told a few hundred only. Can see this certainly being a sell out now or close to it. My last Bees away game was Brum away back in Feb 20 and back in the second city 18 months later.

I tried to buy a ticket on Fri, but the site did not seem to let me pay for it.
My account said it was processing it,then it disappeared and now I can't get in.
Would it be because I only have 1140 TAPS

They've gone to Ticket Office ONLY sales now, that is why you can't get in.

For future reference and from what I understand and I've seen others struggling with, when the payment doesn't process its an error which means you have to wait 20 minutes before paying for the ticket. Not sure what causes the bug, but it essentially locks your ticket out. Now they've taken them offline, I suspect that is why yours isn't still there to pay.

Mine were delivered promptly although seem to have uncovered the latest fiasco with tickets. Has anyone else received extra tickets?

No. Tickets are on sale at the box office for personal callers. Are you going on Tuesday night? As I believe the office will be open then (despite what the official website says).

Sorry to hear this and surprised by that as it was relatively straight forward for me on Friday morning booking it. I guess users have had different experiences. Ps I have less TAPs than you so that wouldn’t have been an issue.

Thanks, possibly because I am not very good with I.T.
I was trying to pay for my ticket after I had been accepted, but couldn't and ran out of time

There will always be people away and people who choose to do family stuff over football that is on the box anyway so you should be fine

Ticket booked on Friday morning, ticket arrived in the post Monday morning. Excellent service from the club (from my perspective).
I also ordered mine early on Friday, no ticket yet and on my account it says ............

Delivery method Standard Mail - Away Tickets Only
Shipment state Not sent


Has anyone any idea how reliable that "not sent" update actually is ?

I would have hoped that with all the "RM issues" ,the early cut off for online sales on Friday ("to enable all tickets to be sent out this week") and probably only a couple of hundred sold on the day in question, that all would have been posted by now as indicated.

Ignore that status. It’s never updated.

Got both tickets for myself and the missus, but nightmare - we bought at seperate times (have different TAPs) and have been put in different stands (upper and lower).

So, does anyone who has a single ticket want to move from the stand which doesn't serve alcohol (I think the upper?) to the one that does (lower)? Could exchange the tickets on the day.

If so, PM me!

I received my ticket yesterday, but I had emailed the club, before it arrived. I received this very helpful reply, just now:

Hi

Your ticket has been posted and you should have received it.

All the Best
