Edited On: 23/04/2018 23:07Ticket embargo for Boro fans v Millwall
 
 
From mfc.co.uk "Due to the high volume of bookings anticipated - and to prevent Millwall supporters gaining entry into the Middlesbrough sections of the ground - there is a booking embargo on any newly-registered clients without a prior purchasing history."

OTT, so probably put a few off bothering and keep crowd down to 25k

Iím happy with the club taking measures to prevent any violence and trouble in and around the stadium.

Iíve nothing against Millwall but they have a poor record on behaviour so itís fair enough in my opinion.

Iíd rather have a crowd of say100 less if it meant we can all enjoy it in peace.

Fair enough if they'd sold all their allocation but they haven'y yet - their remaining ~600 don't go on general sale til tuesday 0930

It looks around 26k Boro tickets have been sold assuming family and corporate tickets are now sold out - ground looks 85% sold out at present.

The embargo will reduce sales, I would guess by less than 500 though

....why? Millwall haven't sold their allocation!?

Bit weird. That said, I think you probably have an account if you were ever going to come to this game.

Not sure about that, still a lot of technophobes and digitally wary ppl about. Be interesting to know how many have signed up for the digital account, it was only a few weeks back ppl were giving up trying to get it working

I think millwall have some type of away ticket scheme which is strict so would be easier to purchase a ticket in the Boro end than directly from millwall if you have been naughty in the past.

Not sure the digital account is relevant. Don't they take name and postcode even if you buy in cash from the ticket office?

I think Millwall have advised the Club that non registered fans of theirs may attempt to buy tickets that way. As said above they have a strict club policy given their history and penchant for attracting thuggery.

Or someone from the club reads this board and liddle saying that his millwall supporting son has a ticket in the home end. Just a thought.

they announced this at least a week ago, also it doesn't mention a digital account, it just says purchasing history, so if you bought tickets in the last couple of seasons or so, you shoud be fine......

We have 40k+ fans with a purchasing history
No reason this should limit the crowd.

It wonít affect the crowd at all - if you have a purchase history you can still register to buy one you nit wits [8)]

They'd be easy to spot anyway; after seeing them at Sheff Utd away they all dress like Peaky Blinders.

You mean the Peaky Blinders started dressing like the East End dockers.

Flap caps were brought over to England by Italian sailors back in the 19th century. The dockers working in London's docklands (ie where Millwall FC were founded) liked the style and took it up too. This fashion spread over the country. Therefore, flap caps are not a northern thing (as many think), but are originally a London docks fashion. Del Boy is more authentic wearing his flap cap than Andy Capp is.

As for the ticket thing - Millwall have operated a members only, all-ticket rule for all away games since the Birmingham City play-off riot in 2002. You have to give in your details and photo ID, which is passed onto the police - so, as you can imagine not many hooligans sign up to it!! Plus, for this game the points bar has been set very high - to allow only well travelled STHs to attend. Meaning there is a big demand for tickets for non-members and even members with low loyalty points.

Brentford had an embargo for the Boro match and loads of empty seats. Lots of clubs do this.

This explains the confusion. I too was thinking why would we have an embargo when they have 600 tickets remaining. Obviously the well-travelled contingent didn't fancy it. Suppose it's a case of watch this space.

Didn't we do it for some Premiership games last season after the Liverpool home game when it was obvious lots of Liverpool fans in South Stand

The Villa home game just after xmas was the same. Ive never registered to buy tickets because my mates always get me them. I had to get my own for the Villa game and was told i needed to have purchasing history. Luckily, my brother had history so i used his account.
