Ticket ballot odds

Let us assume the following : -

1) Membership of G.R. is c. 7,000.
2) 2/3rds of members asked the club to retain their season ticket money towards the new training ground.
3) 2/3rds of eligible members applied to go into the ballot.
4) The 1,000 capacity is reduced by the players, coaching staff and staffing required by, say, 200.

I calculate, based on the above, that those of us who have applied to go into the ballot have, approximately, a 1 in 4 chance of being successful.

Ive read it as fans capped at 1,000 over and above players, staff etc Ken but your point is well made. Small chance but we live in hope.

Its not quite as simple as the original post puts it.

Some members have a better chance than others of being picked.

Hospitality tickets/boxes will need to be refunded to the purchaser if they don't get the chance of going to a game.

The average seat price in hospitality is say 3 times that of a Gold ticket in the main stand.

So it's in the clubs interest to offer them the ticket first , that is no additional income just less money being refunded at the end of the season.

And I know this is true, as I'm fortunate enough to have a box

Kingsway, does that mean you've already been offered a ticket or have you been informed that you have some priority in the ballot?

I doubt this, as this would mean that only box holders and 1873 members would get a ticket.

Sorry, but this simply does not stack up, since the people going into the ballot have already donated the remainder of their ST to the training facility anyway. So no financial benefit to the club for offer one over the other.

Secondly, risk wise, you want people in the open air, not cooped up in boxes.
