wwwpic5678 Liverpool are working on plans to fill the 2,000 seats that are sold but typically left empty at Anfield on matchdays while also considering a season ticket amnesty. The club held the first meeting of the local supporters’ forum in January. A wide variety of topics were discussed but stand out lines included the possible schemes to ensure Anfield is full plus the possibility of an amnesty on season tickets given that significant numbers who attend matches are not the named holder.

Phil Dutton, Liverpool’s head of ticketing and hospitality, revealed the club is determined to reduce the number of unused tickets. He said: “Our fill rate (the number of seats that are used on a matchday) is around 94% but our sales rate (the number of seats sold) is around 99.6% with the 0.4 per cent being unsold visitor tickets or changes to segregation etc. Every available home seat is sold.

“This is an obvious problem and, like everyone else, I get incredibly frustrated when I see seats left empty at Anfield because I know there are so many people who would readily fill them. “We need to improve the platform for supporters to use in relation to this matter but we also need people to talk to us. “If someone knows in advance of a game that they aren’t going to make it then if they let us know we can do something about it.

“If they don’t tell us then the problem doesn’t go away because we can’t give a supporter’s seat to someone else if they’re not in it by 10 past three because there’s a risk that the original ticket holder could turn up at quarter past three.” Given that there are around 2,000 empty seats for some home games it was suggested that local schoolchildren could turn up at Anfield to fill them but although Mr Dutton admitted that the idea was well meaning, he believes it is impractical. wwwpic5678

In terms of children, he said it would be neither pragmatic nor safe to have hundreds of children waiting outside a stadium in the hope that they might get a ticket at an unspecified time. He also said that because the problem involves individual seats being left empty, it would not be suitable for schools who require tickets in groups to allow teachers and pupils to attend together.

Ian Byrne, the Spirit Of Shankly (SOS) delegate, suggested that the club should become more flexible in its approach to ticketing and should be willing to offer fan groups such as SOS and Spion Kop 1906 the opportunity to identify supporters who could take advantage of short notice.

Mr Dutton felt that while that is an option the club would be willing to look at, he would be concerned that the risks associated with ticketing would be passed on to those groups and he was not convinced that would be fair on them or the club. He said: “We need to work with supporters but the ultimate responsibility for the use of any spare tickets needs to sit with the club.

“Next season we want the fill rate to be 99.9%. But for that to happen we need supporters to talk to us and then we need to find a way to use any tickets that are going spare. This place (Anfield) should be full for every single game.” Among the ideas that Mr Dutton stated are currently being considered in order to make ticketing more effective, is a season ticket amnesty. On the possibility of an amnesty, Ste Martin said his concern with that approach would be that it could lead to supporters losing season tickets that have been passed on to them by a family member. wwwpic5678

Coventry 1-1 Notts County: Controversial Marc McNulty penalty gives Sky Blues draw in play-off first leg


 
sbobet24 Marc McNulty's disputed late penalty earned Coventry a 1-1 first-leg draw in their League Two play-off semi-final with Notts County. County had been heading for victory thanks to Jonathan Forte's exquisitely taken backheel from Dan Jones's cross four minutes after the break. But they were pegged back when referee Gavin Ward wrongly penalised Matt Tootle's tackle on Tom Bayliss four minutes from time, allowing Coventry top-scorer McNulty to net his 27th goal of the season. A draw was a fair reflection on the balance of play at the Ricoh Arena, where both sides played their part in an entertaining encounter amid treacherous wet conditions.

But County will be hoping Ward's error does not prove fatal when the two sides meet at Meadow Lane for Friday night's second leg. A sodden pitch looked in danger of not lasting the game early on, but both sides were not deterred from contesting a game played on the deck in large parts. Coventry were not afraid to mix it up, though, and found McNulty in behind early on, only for the home forward to strike the far post from 20 yards. Notts County responded when Forte's flick from a corner was kicked away by Lee Burge in the Coventry goal soon after, before Coventry again came close as Shaun Brisley turned Tom Bayliss' cross towards his own goal - but goal-line technology ruled Adam Collin had kept it out at his near post. sbobet24

The visitors found themselves ahead within minutes of the restart when Jones beat Matt Grimmer to the ball, and Forte executed a superb backheel from his cross to leave Burge scrambling and Kevin Nolan's men in front. That looked like being as dramatic as it would get with neither goalkeeper tested until the final four minutes, when Tootle was wrongly adjudged to have fouled Bayliss, despite winning the ball cleanly from the Coventry man inside his own box. McNulty showed no sympathy to step up and fire into the bottom corner to earn Coventry a share of the spoils, leaving enough time for them to claim another spot-kick when John Stead handled in the area moments later - a decision Ward decided against giving this time. sbobet24
