    Without being sarcastic, teams like Grimsby will rely heavily on big away support boosting the coffers.

    POTG was 20 quid, if 400 travelled without tickets that's 8 grand, may not seem much but in league 2 I'd imagine it equates to about 8 players weekly wage.

    Yes, they said there was until they were told otherwise.

    Not too sure why you take it out on the person running the CCFC social media though as if they can fix it.

    What i can not understand, is the gave us 1800. Let us sell the 1800 all in one end no issue! I can see if they need to know numbers travelling. But to stop all together is bonkers!

    from the offal:

    "
    Tickets have this morning been taken off-sale for Coventry City’s away game at Grimsby Town.

    The decision to take tickets off sale was taken by Grimsby’s Safety Advisory Group, following consultation from their local police force.

    Following this decision, tickets will NOT be available to buy on the day of the game.

    Coventry City are disappointed that more of the Sky Blue Army will not be able to attend, despite both Grimsby and Coventry City anticipating on the day sales, but unfortunately this is beyond our control."

    Sorry???? Taking it out on you????

    You have me mistaken for someone who gives a fuck.

    I've not taken it out on you one bit. I just politely pointed out why I didn't purchase a ticket when all avenues said you could pay at the turnstiles.

    I think you were the one who suggested I should have bought when they went on sale.... clearly stating the obvious nick and it's not something I appreciate xx

    I didn't say anybody was taking it out on me. I said taking it out on the person running the social media accounts.

    Yep, I suggested why not buy a ticket if you knew you were going the day the fixtures came out and it matched up with plans. Not much wrong with that, it's still not your fault though the safety people have put a stop to it, the same as it isn't CCFC's.

    Fuck it and just turn up anyway, i imagine a lot will as will not have read this new information before travelling. I've got in a couple of games before when there was no pay on the day, think Millwall last season was one of them.

    I'm hoping it's pay on the day in the home stand as my grandad always pays cash on the day and goes in the main stand, I live away from Grimsby now but there is nothing backing up why tickets to you guys have stopped or whether you can still potd in home stands :/
    I don't want to say just turn up and hope they let you in but it wouldn't surprise me if they just let you potd if you just turn up, someone did it to Grimsby last season. They said no potd then 10mins before kick off announced we could??

    I've POTG twice for the away end at Millwall in the last few years, and that supposedly
    Is very strictly all ticket.

    We are in Cleethorps, met a few here without tickets. The locals have told us they will be pay on he gate regardless they always do. No one will be allowed to hang around outside a ground they want the money.

    Surely this is not anything to do with a supposed hooligan element from Cov.
    Thought those days were well behind us. Why spoil a fantastic day out for the other 98% of proper fans who enjoy mingling with the opposition locals, it's all part of the day.

    Can pay on the gate now (apparently!). Sure I just overheard a steward say so!
