Good move to extend the age on concessions, always thought it was ridiculous a 17 year old who's still at school could get hit for a full adult ticket.

 

£10 increase on all types of season ticket compared to last season. Early bird Adult works out at £14.44 per game, normal Adult works out at £15.55 per game. I assume as it's not mentioned there PATG will remain at £18?

Anyone else having issues getting into the online ticket site? It's asking me for log in details.

Would imagine the site will go live when ticket sales do.

Official Facebook page said website will go live at 10am tomorrow so can't access it just now.
I've got no image of it. I just saw a copy of what the club want it to look like and thought it looked smart. Should be similar to this if the photo/link works:

Was talking to a mate of mine who went to a few home games last season who was also interested in a half season book for this year. Bit disappointing if that's the case, I thought it was a good idea.

I had to phone the club as the website was attempting to charge £240 for a concession early bird instead of £205.  However I also found out that unlike last season, when a season ticket consisted of 18 individual match vouchers which could each be used for any match, so that for example 2 people could go to 9 games, or even 18 people could all go to the same game, the new system is a single card that only gives access to 1 person for each game.  That makes the system completely inflexible except for people who never miss a game.  The dropping of the half season ticket is also a retrograde step for those who can't make every game.  For me, it's probably not worth getting a season ticket next season.  The old season tickets way back in the 60s were numbered vouchers so it's just a modern version of that now, but last season was a great innovation in my opinion and I'm sorry to see it go.

I don't really see the issue here. The whole point in a season ticket is for a supporter to get guaranteed tickets at a cheaper rate for all home games. The new system will be modern and quicker to get through the turnstiles as well, giving supporters more convenience when entering the ground unlike the problems at the end of this season. The card is also easier to keep a hold of instead of having to keep a book of tickets in your pocket. 

I'm surprised they've binned the half season ticket though unless there wasn't much uptake of them last season.

Also the old seasons ticket way back in, eh, 2015/2016. I liked last season's system but if the club were losing money with people having the ability to dole tickets out to mates if they couldn't make games it's entirely understandable to revert to a more conventional method.

Due to work commitments the half season ticket was good for me also (and I intended to buy one) If They did 'half season cards' Alibi could buy two which would allow him to go to games with his boy (or whoever)  on dates that suited him. It would be good to have a bit of flexibility for the fans. Not sure why there isn't.

 

Edit to add... re Dunnings point about giving the card to mates (and the club losing revenue) If you only have 9 games on your card you are unlikely to be dishing it out to others. eg last season I used all my tickets and paid full price to go to additional ones. This season I won't be buying a full season ticket so the club will lose out on the money coming in early.

Surely if enough fans contacted the club to enquire about half season tickets well they do say they are listening to the fans after all.

I was meaning that specifically in relation to not having numbered vouchers last season for full season books rather than the lack of half-season tickets. You could have feasibly had the scenario last season where someone bought a season ticket knowing they would miss a couple of games, then doled out all the spare vouchers at once for a big game in the event they 'brought a friend'.

apologies - fair enough. I was mainly thinking about the half season option. I'm assuming that Alibi and his boy cant attend every game in  season so buying two tickets would give them the option of going to games together (or separately) as they wish.

I did like the fact they were just individual tickets. I thought the point WAS that you could give them out - or people could share a ticket? Seem to remember them promoting them that way, could be wrong.

I liked it, but with the new cards it makes it difficult for that system to work. Shame really.

Not sure why half season tickets can't be done though.

Spoke to Warren Hawke there he said that due to having electronic turnstiles they could not do half season tickets although they did ask whoever is doing the tickets if it was feasible. He said that with in the next week or two they will be rolling out a fans card where you register either at Cappielow or Smiths where you either go on line or go too Cappielow or Smiths for paying when ever you choose to go to a game.

Just registered and bought my season ticket with minimal grief there. I can see and sympathise with the grumbles about the half season ticket, but not being able to use the ticket for two folk to go to one game shouldn't really be an issue considering that it was only ever last season that the club allowed it. It's not as if it's something we're not used to.

 

This should suit me well at least. I like the idea of adding friends so you can easily buy tickets together. It works well for the Scotland Supporters' Club for away games and whilst it's unlikely to be needed too often, it should be pretty good for trips to the likes of Hampden, Ibrox or Celtic Park for cup ties, or perhaps Dumbarton.

 

I like the idea of being able to load home cup tie tickets onto the card in advance too. This hopefully will allow the club to make special offers as the season goes on- e.g four games for £50-60 or a group of four guys to one game for a similar price.

 

People are by nature resistant to change and there will be complaints along the way, but this is undoubtablly a forward step IMHO. Only two complaints from me. That message to club officials at the bottom of the page that won't go away. That's a pain in the tits. And having bought my Season Ticket, it's appeared on my Purchase History but I've not received an e-mail receipt for my purchase. Did nobody get one or am I just impatient in expecting it straight away?

I didn't get an email confirmation either, which is always slightly concerning at first .

However I can see my purchase history so all is good ( I hope) !!!

I just need to email them now to tell them which seat I want ( the one I've always had)

For season 2018/19 it looks like it'll just be renewing for the seat you have in your purchase history , so it looks easy enough thereafter

Check your junk mail, mines ended up there.
The website was a total chew, I somehow managed to buy one but I was just hitting buttons, or random bits of text where there wasn't a button, and hoping for the best.

Like the idea of loading other games or extra tickets on to your card.

It's not a huge problem reverting to the conventional system for admission, but last year's arrangement suited us as a result of which we bought a season ticket, knowing we would easily use the 18 vouchers. We ran out after the last skunks game and just paid in after that. This coming season we'll just get tickets on a per game basis. It's not a huge difference and the money is going to Morton. Only problem might be getting tickets for cup ties but even that is unlikely to be a problem.

Here's hoping they get this system up & running without too many hitches.

I'm looking forward to the first few games with a sort of morbid curiosity to see what can go wrong.

IT failure & prolonged reboot at ten to three on a Saturday a possibility?
