    Lets hope those Ricoh events include Cov City matches then. It would be in the interests of everyone for that to happen !

    Hopefully next year we are back on the card system and using the Ricoh ticketing system.

    Logo on the signage has Wasps featured prominently.

    Hopefully we do whatever is the cheapest way we don't need to be wasting money on cards etc we need to be spending it on players. I don't find it any quicker with the card.

    If the cost was right it would be ok, thats the major factor. Then there is the cost of linking the CCFC system into it.

    Got closed as it wasn't financially viable didn't it?

    Would be good to get back on the card system. Hopefully ACL have learned from this year and won't try to charge us a ridiculously high fee for access.

    Wether the person in front of me at the turnstile has a book, ticket or card they still don't seem to have the ability to get it of their pocket while in the queue and always wait until they get there, I always rip my out and just hand it in for smooth entry:whistle:

    Yep I always have tickets ripped out ready.

    It would be easier if every CCFC fan who goes to games gets a card, they can just pay online, it auto adds it to their card. No need for paper tickets or collecting. Same over the phone.

    It is just the costs, if it they are going to be massive or not!

    That's the problem. People say we should use the same system as Wasps. That would mean either putting ticket prices up to cover the cost or the club making less per ticket sold. Is that the best idea when the budget is tight?

    We used to have that. Still got mine somewhere.

    The problem with it was you had to remember what seat you'd booked. Of course no-one did so you had loads of people turning up with no clue where they were supposed to be sitting! You could get round that these days by having an app with a QR code to scan, the app could store the details of what seats you'd booked.

    That's the thing, it would probably cost about the same for a card than it would a season ticket. The implementation of the systems would need to be paid for , so would be passed on over all tickets I guess :(

    Shop. If you picture Cathedral Lanes, it's the first shop on the left, immediately inside the mall. The side is therefore facing out into Broadgate.

    Very small, but very prominent. Opposite Wagamama and next to Black's, the outdoor wear place.

    Can't see why they have done this surely with all their fantastic ticketing systems they don't need open a shop.

    It's not the use at the turnstile that is the gain.
    Once you have the card you just phone up for tickets and the central database is updated to enable the turnstile to accept your card.
    The book is a pain to remember as I can't just leave it in my wallet.
    No more paper tickets for ST holders.
    CD could probably advise why other fans can't have a loyalty card that tickets could be placed onto it. I guess there is no seat identification like season tickets seats.

    Could do with a common card for Wasps and CCFC :whistle:

    You could have a card, we did when we first moved to the Ricoh. The problem, as you say, is that unless its a season ticket with details printed on it, there's no seat identification.

    Also whenever they used to fail the stewards would just let you through, can be certain there would be people abusing the system if that wasn't clamped down on.

    Their aim is to push the football club into the shadows and be the biggest sports club the city. It was always going to happen

    Sorry for wanting my football club to achieve its potential. We've already established that you are a vile, greedy and arrogant man who boasts about his wealth and cars.

    If you seriously want CCFC to reach it's potential I would be asking questions of CCFC's owners if I was you. This may come as a shock to you but SISU are the ones responsible for making sure the club reaches its potential not anyone else.

    Stop diverting attention away from their multiple failures that have done more to damage the chances of the club reaching it's potential than anyone else.

    You continually play the victim why failing to acknowledge the perpetrator. It's becoming more than a little tedious.

    We ?
    Surely you mean you ?
    Wealth and cars ? Haha
    You need to take Sisu to task if anyone. Not look enviously at everybody else and blame them.

    The majority on this forum think that you are a hypocritical old goat.

    Hypocritical because I refused to go to Northampton but I go to Wasps ?
    It doesn't matter. Stop following the few and get a life.
    I'm my own person, enjoying life and not afraid to put my case to this board without having to result to personal insults.

    It's not me moaning about Wasps. I'm just telling him where to channel his efforts if he wants to make a difference. Personally I couldn't give a shit with Sisu in charge as it would make no difference. Just need to wait until they go and try and keep wasting my money on supporting CCFC.

    Never slagged anyone off for going to Sixfields. But keep using this sorry comment to justify your position on it .

    The few being you and Tony? ;)

    I often find people who tell others to get a life because they have a differing opinion, are actually the ones who need to get a life themselves and respect that people see things in adifferent way.

    You and Tony continually trawl the line out about SISU. Yes we know SISU are to blame, its without doubt. The fact is some people also think Wasps arent a great deal of help to the situation either.

    Personally I would happilly wave them goodbye, but then I feel quite strongly about the franchise situation and what they have done. I have never wavered from that opinion. It appears you dont, but I dont think you should get a life.
