Test Game - Swindon

Seems a few on Avftt have had an email about being able to go to the Swindon game?

Anyone on here had it and can elaborate?

Yes, I have had an email for Callum and me. It mentions seat allocations for the Pool v Swindon test game. We have been moved from block k to block f (confirming the seats I saw when the system was briefly up a week or so ago). I assume that this is for the limit of 1000 for the test and if they increase it for future matches that other ST holders will be selected instead.
We are obviously Band A* ST holders :sneaky:

Someone mentioned on AVFTT yesterday that the Club was due to send out voucher codes on Wednesday for other ST holders so they can watch on ifollow

Club Statement
Just now

The Club is aware that some supporters may have received an email this afternoon due to a technical error from Ticketmaster.
Supporters who have received these emails today should disregard them.
As has been speculated in the news, the EFL and Government are in discussions regarding test events taking place in the near future, however, no definitive information has been received to date.

Any further announcements regarding any test events and the return of supporters in the longer term will be announced once the Club has received further clarity from the EFL.

We should be requesting to be a test site to practice the club arrangements. I had previously read that you can't have more fans back until you had run at least one test with fewer fans

I was shocked that I hadn't received an email, then remembered that ticket master managed the cheap seats and that the club would have hand delivered our M Block invites wrapped in a tangerine silk ribbon....

Well the 25% seat price increase in the last year must be worth something surely:innocent::wack:

New statement now on the club website.

The club are allocating the 1000 pilot tickets on the basis of the order people purchased their STs. They will be notified, with a printable ticket by 5pm tomorrow, together with social distancing code. Others will be emailed a code for ifollow.

Seeing Callum and I purchased at 10am on the first morning of sale I am hoping we are selected.
