Thread: Can anybody explain...

  1. #1

    Can anybody explain...

    why there is a friendly this evening at CCS with a maximum capacity of 8,000 and a cricket match happening in the same city with a cap of 2,000 in capacity? Have I missed something.

    Is Drakeford and his cronies actually talking to anybody? Is the guidance clear enough?

    Is our club or Glamorgan CCC talking to the WAG?

    Missed something in what sense?

    I don't know, but would imagine it's a % of the capacity combined with the ability to maintain social distancing with the seat layout?

    Well one being a cricket ground with a larger pitch and less roofing having to restrict their crowd to a quarter of a tighter stadium with more indoor/covered areas?

    Where are the Welsh sporting teams taking guidance from because they all seem to be interpreting it differently?

    I could see that line of thinking if the Jacks didn't manage to set a capacity of 8,200 with a ground with a third less capacity than ours.

    Throw the WRU into the whole sorry mess with 8,000 or so in a 72,500 capacity stadium also.

    Also depends on what parts of the stadium each club has decided to open. I dont think tickets were on sale for the Grandstand, upper Ninian or the away end.
    I wouldn't lose too much sleep over the numbers.

    Would the cricket get 2k anyway?

    Would we even get 8k for a friendly?

    They've made it so awkward to buy tickets, they'll be lucky to get 3000 down there

    The cricket have sold out. I believe the crowd for the Hundred would have been well above that and possibly above what City would get in against Southampton.

    Does anyone know how many times we've got over 8,000 for pre-season friendly?

    On the subject of tickets - the tickets for Welsh Fire are only available via their app and include a Covid self-certification form. I'm not sure CCFC has ever used an app? It would be a great thing if they did and I'd be happy to ditch the season ticket for an e-ticket too. It would be a lot easier for the club to manage and they can update it on the fly.

    The website design for ticket purchase is awful and the app is flakey too.

    I've got to say, fab work with helping people sort their season ticket problems I've been reading about - It's a really kind thing to do and very public-spirited. All adds to a sense of community. Massive

    Yes, they sold out within a day. There were Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Gold went in hours and Silver not long after that (I think the Bronze tickets were right at the top of the Foster's Stand where you need oxygen). I think you're right about the crowd for The Hundred likely to have been bigger but the tickets were sold last year when things were much tighter.

    Surely they would have released more had they been able to?

    Every other team has managed it.

    Every other team though is in another country that has it's own rules.

    You'd think, but I can't second guess any of this stuff anymore. I've lost complete track of time and I'd have to check the purchase dates but I may have even bought them before restrictions. I just can't remember - I'm still living in early 2019!

    Ours being what exactly?

    That is where the problem lies.

    I remember getting the pre sale e-mail and I'm sure that was some time ago so you're probably right.

    Not pre-season, but 40,000 for Moscow Dynamo - a good article here:
