Well ..i think i ve finally found out ONE of the reasons why we ve possibly only sold 3500 ST!
My son has been trying to buy a ST online today ..now that the date had passed for those to save their seat ..but he gave up and finally rang and actually got through to the Ticket Office.
Explaining to them he wanted to try and buy a seat that he had two seasons ago he was told that the last day for ST renewals (28th July) had been SCRAPPED and extended to Monday 2nd August . The reason given was that many people had tried to renew and save their seats but couldnt either by the Online system (for some reason) or by phone (which im sure anyone who has tried to ring Rovers will know why)!
When asked could he therefore buy one on Tuesday 3rd of August ..he was told no ..they d go on General Sale on Weds 4th August. My son also asked would he have to pick up the ticket by hand at the club because of the short notice and Rovers at home on the Saturday he was told that a paper ticket would be issued because at the moment the club had no plastic ST Cards ??
Soooo a heads up anyone hoping to aquire a ST now after the so called deadline has passed for renewals ..it hasnt and you wont be able to buy until Weds 4th August. Sorry for the long winded post !
