Next season cup games

This was posted on the Hebburn branch site by Cath Reid it explains the reason to withdraw the home cup scheme from direct debit.
Hi, Following a few messages yesterday regarding the cup payment scheme, i contacted the club on behalf of our branch members. I have been advised by the club due to early rounds of the Cup at home, where the attendance is rarely more than 18k, It is felt the atmosphere is poor and support for the team is difficult as fans are spread over the entire Stadium - this is certainly something that we as supporters have previously mentioned.

The club are proposing to try and help the atmosphere in the early rounds, by selling tickets in the main bowl and close tier 3 except for away fans. They hope concentrating fans in certain areas will encourage and increase support for the team.
As the cup scheme activates the season card holders card for your seat, it could be unlikely that your seat will be available in this scenario they would not activate your card and more likely offer a match ticket or print at home for an available seat of their choosing. This would mean you would have the correct seat details for the seat you have actually purchased. On this basis the reasons for the cup scheme become redundant.
Season card holders will still be guaranteed a seat – especially as we usually only get 14k – 18k in an area which holds 38k, they will still get Black Cat points and their usual seat would be guaranteed as previously (subject to away allocations) as we progress through the rounds.
I'm sure there will be more information coming out in the near future regarding proposals they are currently looking at,
Hope this helps a little,

Unless we have a vast improvement in results, we could be playing in the Shipowners Cup next season!!

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and beat you on experience.
