You pay a fixed sum of money to reserve your seat.

 

I think the Wembley ones were about £10,000 for 5 years, gives you first priority of buying your seat for any event at Wembley. ( You pay on top for each event )

Thanks, I had no idea what it meant. A mate in dartford managed to get them. I'm going, but they were sixty notes each. Oof...

You had your pants pulled down by your mate, I tapped up my mate for them and paid £58 plus a single delivery charge of £4.25. I have been told that despite not being able to wear my shirt I will enjoy the experience of the posh seats and the concourse.

Dont understand why so many are going on about it causing trouble with the Carlise fans or getting a broken nose. Nothing like that will happen unless you look for trouble, however if you wear saints colours in the Southampton end you will be kicked out the ground!

I meant Southampton colours in Carlise end... you will be escorted out by Stewards/Police.

Thanks - thought i'd test the water on this one. Years ago i was at the Dell when we played Wigan in the Wigan end ( with a mate who was a Wigan fan) Wigan scored first and I was the only one in there end not celebrating like a loon, then came the half time and the news that I was a saints fan was put about, I had some ribbing but no hassle. Second half Matty pop's an equaliser and I went mad in a sea of calmness - no hassle and a good day out. As i have my Mum I guess I'll play safe.

 

Thanks for all the advice.

I can't remember having ever played Wigan in Matt Le Tiss' time?

 

Anyways, don't underestimate 'little' Carlisle, they've always had a 'nawty' mob follow them around (and England - known as 'BCF' a few years back) so they'll always be some who'll take umbrage to a few oppos in with 'em - as there would with us.

 

So act sensible and if someone taps you on the shoulder and introduces himself as 'Mr Dodds'.........

Wear a faded P----y shirt. That should do it.

Even the yobs will take pity on the afflicted.

14 of us have Club Wembley tickets - the guy on the phone said it would be fine to wear colours but on the tickets it says 'no club colours allowed' not sure what to think now :confused:

 

I think most of the folks in Club Wembley will be Saints or neutral (I'm also in Club Wembley) - so theoretically wearing colours should be OK. But don't want to be chucked out so may wear a T-shirt underneath in case I have to take them off

Seems like its a case of go prepared for those of us in the Club Wembley seats and see how the mood of those around us and the Stadium Stasi is. Bottom line is I have tickets to see Saints at Wembley Stadium, there are many who do not, if I am not allowed to wear my colours I will not be crying into my beer.

I went to the Leeds V Donny play off final there were thousands of Leeds fans in the Donny end most wearing colours loads of flags and banners they all ended up in 1 area with stewards between them and the Donny fans.

 

I think you will be ok wearing colours you will not be on your own and if there is a lot of Saints in the Carisle end they wont eject you
