EMBRA - Purchasing on the day

Postby CRAZYDAVE » October 23rd, 2006, 12:17 pm

Attached response received from Gunners

Subject: RE: Ticketing Arrangements for Edinburgh V Leinster


Tickets will be available on the day - Priced £20 Adults and £5 concessions. Reserved seating will be in operation, therefore you will need to sit in the seats you are sold.

Kind regards

Edinburgh Rugby

So much for the info that we thought we had from multiple sources :roll: :roll:

Mass organised walk-up :?: :?:

I bought mine from the branch after Grumpy posting it up here. If I haven't received my ticket by Thursday, I shall be asking for a refund, and buying one on the door. And no, I can't collect it, if they ask me to.

Same, I didn't get the email either, even though it was "sent" to me!

Thats not good news. I bought tickets from the branch presuming it would be unreserved seating. Where did this false info come from?
Looks like there'll be pockets of blue now around the stadium instead of the one big mass.

Why pay extra to the Gunners coffers????? 20 pounds sterling is 30 euro. The branch are selling them for 26 euro, and you're guaranteed to be seated with other Leinster fans. It's a no-brainer if you ask me :roll: :roll:

If you order online and if the tickets, given four days for delivery, arrive on time.

I'll just have to go & sit on my hands in the middle of Gunners supporters.

And during office hours.

The other thing is that the LB will have to send back any unsold tickets so that Embra can sell them, so there will be a deadline as to when you can purchase them.

Yeah, exactly, Aine told me this last week saying that they have to come from the UK. Too late to order now & guarantee arrival before we set off.
