    I withdrew my original application. As it allows you to do. It states that option. ( it wouldn't allow me to edit the original) And applied again. Not an issue.

    I think it's my fault. I mentioned non ST holders.

    says it’s about 4 times on the Q&A thing. But should it need to, it’s a bit obvious really you can’t be part of more than 1 network so have more chances. How would that be fair on folk who just want to sit with their kid of summat and enter once.

    You’ve got a chance, these 24 hours. If you don’t get it sorted before then then why should the club hold off selling to others if needed when they can’t magically know you’re struggling if you don’t tell them?

    So bear in mind we've had 48 hrs, not the clubs fault, but we've more than 2 groups of 6 and all on each others networks over time, if your on someones network that has submitted an application then it stops you submitting one yourself. Fair enough to those groups over 15 who have managed to organise this on WhatsApp, admit probably stressing over nothing but we've all had tickets for a while so just asking for a fair crack.

    It’s straightforward
    Your name is in the ballot. The only way I’m getting a chance of a ticket (non ST holder) and you’re not, is if the mate who’s put your name in decides he doesn’t want tickets when offered.

    I don’t know how anyone could imagine how a non ST holder can get a chance before all ST holders have had the option. The ballot is clearly, and rightly in your favour.

    It only stops you submitting an application if they've included you in their own submission. Which means you're in the ballot anyway?

    I'm also sorry that the comms couldn't have been any clearer and you're struggling to understand the situation. The ballot isn't closed yet so plenty of time to get your head round it. I organised two 'bubbles' that successfully applied today, across WhatsApp and e-mail, from all over the UK.

    It sounds like you're getting networks confused with applications. They're two different things.

    But it's not been clear, that's the point. We've had hardly any time to organise if they'd said all individually apply fair enough buy groups of 6 when you've a big group not all lined up is not easy, if the next stage is season ticket holders that missed out get another chance then I accept but if its queue up sorry but **** off, where where you last season.

    This was a question I was going to ask. I missed someone off my application originally and now want to add. Thanks for this.

    By allowing each ST holder to be allowed in only one bubble. Not multiple. Gives everyone a fair crack. Also prevents touting. Having proof if Id also helps.

    It's an electronic update to a season ticket, not sure touting comes into it.

    So the club are trying to organise 8,000 in to 4,500 and everything that comes with that, with little government warning, and waking up this morning not even knowing if the Welsh Assembly were going to let the game go ahead.

    You've got to organise splitting your big group in to groups of six and get one person from each six to be the 'lead booker', and the comms haven't been clear and you've hardly had any time to organise it.

    I'm with you now ........

    What happened with me mate. I'd entered our six but when I completed the transaction. It only had me on the list. The only way I could add the other 5 was to take the Withdraw application route and re-apply. Took less than 5 minutes. Even with the ccok up.
