    Vitesse have confimed that the St Marys leg is 20.05 kick off. So guessing it's on TV then

    educated guess is that anything 8 and above is a definite, 7 is a should, above 6 more than likely, 5/4 touch and go, anything less is a definite no.

    Everyone 6 and above will get one for sure. Below that and it will be a lottery.

    Going to be critical for me whether cup games count.

    can't see why they wouldn't be, cup aways have always counted for normal away tickets. I assume the only ones that won't will be the Newcastle away game as the date hasn't passed yet (which was their criteria last season)

    There can't be 1200 Saints fans with more than 7 aways last season I shouldn't think...

    I think people with 4 or 5 might possibly have a chance even if they phase it, not everyone is going to be able to go, and some will be put off by prices if they haven't already booked.

    If it's only 1200 it won't get past ST holders unless they specifically hold some back.
    If it's nearer 2000 I think any ST holders with more than 4 will be ok and it might go to a wider group.

    My main concern is not actually knowing how many I'm going to have that count, because the club changes the criteria all the time and also has and hasn't counted the first game of last season due to it coming before the cut-off calculation... and many many more. I have at least 7 and possibly 10, I think. Plus thanks to their policy on carers and my disabled mate being crap at allocating the numbers when we go with him, there are numerous other random factors affecting whether or not me and the missus might be able to get tickets in the same window, etc.

    They should really have a quick lookup so there are no surprises.

    They haven't, they often didn't count cup aways previously. I've had to wait for later windows due to it a few times.

    Why would they not? Vitesse are probably quite pleased with all the extra sales, don't think they sell out all that many games.

    Yes but I bought using a Dubai Credit Card & address with a stadium pick up. (We can wave local ID and do the whole Tourists Routine). If need be I have some Dutch FB friends who have said they would order for me and get delivered to them in Holland before meeting up Wednesday, couple are even considering coming to the game with us.

    They reckoned that the worst they would do is cancel any UK based transactions but everyone thinks it is highly unlikely.

    #GlobalSFC are all interlinked now and in a plan B situation, we have a big Dutch following and I am sure they will tweet/FB nearer the time. The various groups with fans travelling to the game (inc the crazy Auddies) are already communicating

    Just looking at my two card accounts (can't remember which I used) and I can't see it listed on there. so guessing they didn't take it.

    I "bought" mine early on aswell. (Friday afternoon)

    I've got a friend living in Holland whose going to the game so might need to give him a shout.

    Will do well to sellout I think because should be a decent crowd.

    We should have a near sell out I'd imagine. After all it's the first game of the season and is dirt cheap.

    OK ... bit my tongue long enough ...... and this isn't aimed specifically at you Mouldy, Blocks 120 - 122 are on the side, not at the end of the ground

    Every where I look, not just on here, but The Echo, The UI and Twitter people keep banging on about Saints Fans buying tickets in the Home End .... aaaaarrrrrggggghhhh.

    Has this been added to the Vitesse website recently or has it been there the whole time:

    Fans of Southampton FC can only buy tickets for the away-stand section. Please check the official website of Southampton or details about the tickets. Dutch supporters of Southampton FC need to buy their tickets at the official club channels of the English Premier League club.

    They're all "ends", you just need to consider the "end" behind the touchline not the goal-line.

    I'm not so sure. They could insist on those tickets being collection at ticket office only, with some proof required of being a Vitesse fan. Depends on what the dibble tell them to do, I guess.

    Anyway we only have to wait till tomorrow. Personally I think we'll get more than 1200 as I am sure the area behind the goal alone holds that. Let's see what Saints are saying, selfishly I'm sorted either way so not too bothered.

    I'm sure a half and half scarf will be sufficient.

    I wonder how Vitesse ticket sales are going for their trip here, they'll be getting ready to set off this time next week.

    I've got a feeling that we might get a few more tickets, if it was just the usual 1200 away end that would have been easy for them to agree on and announce rather than waiting 6 days faffing.

    Seriously, it's infinitely more hassle for them to kick up a fuss at the turnstile than it is to let people in and then control the crowd inside the ground.
