STFC Answer Allocation Question

Swindon Town F.C have released a statement explaining why Walsall fans were given the Stratton Bank stand for our match this weekend.

Allocation Answers

Swindon Town Football Club would like to clarify the reasons behind the away allocation taken by Walsall this weekend.

Under Football League rules the club are obliged to offer at least 10% of the ground capacity to visiting supporters as registered with the Football League.

Tickets went on sale for this game 11 weeks ago when the decision was made to open the Stratton Bank as well as the usual away section of the Arkells Stand which only has a capacity of 1,325 . This falls below the minimum requirement and it was therefore mandatory for us to make additional space available for Walsall supporters.

With the experience of the Mansfield game and the benefit of hindsight we may have taken the view that only the Stratton Bank would be made available to away fans to meet our obligations under the Football League regulations. However, at the time the tickets went on sale we could not have reasonably envisaged a sell out for the game.

We share the disappointment of any regular fans that have been caught unawares by the extra demand for tickets and will be unable to see the game.
