but it could take up 75% of the 10,000..?? my guess is that they would stay with the current proportion of sales-ST's. 55-60% At 60% there would be approx 36,000 ST's so it could actually clear all those currently on the waiting list.
coming in thick and fast already LMAO!! referee this linesman that referee's buttistant the other ball was round weather...
Now then isn't there some mad argument about the pros and cons of having increased capacity? thus-
"Needless to say, the facts are significantly different. Alarmingly so:-
Liverpool Football Club currently restricts its season ticket holders to around 29,000. The season ticket waiting list is claimed to be 10-14,000. It is suspected that the real waiting list figure is closer to half that due to multiple applications, "officially unsanctioned" ticket inheritance arrangements, long-term drop-outs etc. Indeed, Rick Parry himself has recently hinted at it being nearer half the originally perpetrated figure. Discounting away supporters the rest of the regular 44,000 attendance is composed of around 12,000 specific match day ticket applications.
Incidentally, it should be stated here that the reason for the club restricting the number of season ticket holders and maximising the match-day applications is to balance the make-up of the clientele attending Anfield thereby satisfying the lucrative day-tripper following which in turn helps to sustain club shop turnover.
Back to the argument, the crucial point as far as the optimum capacity issue is concerned, is that the 12,000 match day applications effectively account for the whole of the season ticket waiting list demand.
YES, you heard right.
In other words for a run-of-the-mill league fixture there is NO FURTHER DEMAND OF ANY REAL SIGNIFICANCE to be tapped into. Thus, the forty odd thousand that is currently Liverpool's average attendance happens also to be - moreorless - Liverpool's maximum regular attendance OTHER THAN FOR the most attractive fixtures. "
dunno if this is correct of course as there are always plenty of disappointed fans without a ticket.
