2000 empty seats at a united HOME game today

Why should he. Do you think that each and every season ticket holder can attend every game? The answer is a resounding NO. United do not know who will / won’t attend so consequently there are empty seats. This happens at every ground every week. It makes sense that the more season tickets you sell then the more there will be empty based on %age absentees.

broady i'm not having a dig at fans not going far from it, but chatty mentions it every time city have empty seats i'm just pointing out his hypocrisy..

It's the same at City Broady and every other ground in the country, I agree with you.

The difference is that yoonited bought the league for so many years that they have a plethora of tourists to take up the slack of "not turn ups on the day"..........for now.

City have a generation to catch up on so it will take time. That doesn't stop Chatty and his ilk attempting to beat us with the only pathetic stick they have left!

Nobody cares however....apart from them of course.

P.S. in reply to to your statement that the more season tickets there are the more there will be empty seats, I believe that City have a higher % of season tickets to capacity than any other Premier League club, as a result your theory is accentuated at The Etihad.

But the fact is you cannot sell those empty seats because how would you know which of the season ticket holders would turn up late on the day. I think it is against FA rules to sell them anyway.

City have a ticket exchange scheme and I can sell the ticket on the website if I need to at a lower price, the club then sell it on at a higher price and make a profit.

The problem is that unless the seat is sold before the day of the game it can't be sold. As a result I don't have time to even give away the seat if I wanted to on the day of the game.

Result.....empty seat.


In fairness to yoonited, I assume they have a similar scheme but with more tourists in the queue to buy it, so fewer empty seats.

if there was 20,000 spare seats available then old trafford must now hold 93,000+ because there was 73,000 + at the match tonight ? .

There wasn't. The crowd includes season ticket holders whether they attend or not.

whups stay of the ale IDIOT it says 2000 not 20,000 you'll never be a teacher will you?

Posted by: laughing gravy (5070) Report abuse
broady if the figure is 73,000 if they are there or not,theres still 2000 empty seats even by your reckoning

Posted by: broady (15087)   Report abuse
There are quite a number at every game. Check GNP site. They used to give exact attendances.

Posted by: whups (4107)   Report abuse
still more than city then.

Quite correct, I only mention half empty stadiums on Champions League nights and 30,000 for domestic semi finals!


City have a generation to catch up on so it will take
time.

Do you honestly think?
Chelsea was buying trophies well before you(big European one's as well) and nobody gives a toss about them outside of West London.
