    how ever it's decided, I hope all that want a ticket get one. Personally I have had a season card for 14 years, away loyally points and paid for last season. However, if I miss out then I miss out as it may not go on the above criteria. I Personally think the club will start emailing fans on a pre approved basis. With a simple "do you want a ticket, yes or no" option. Alas, we shall see. Good luck everyone.

    I think overnight queue around the block is the only true way to sort out who REALLY wants tickets.

    Yep....my thinking, exactly.

    Not to purposely spite the current card holders.

    Long before our destiny of the playoffs was decided, I'd already accepted that it would be a case of watching on the box. Dunno if it's increased grumpiness, nonchalance or whatever, but I have absolutely no desire to join the circus act of acquiring a ticket. Would rather just wait for normality to come back into play.

    To be honest, with a club like Sunderland there are always going to be more loyal supporters than tickets available for big games.

    On the one level that is great because it almost guarantees a magnificent following. On the other hand though, whichever way you look at how loyalty is measured you are always going to have a number of loyal fans that end up feeling pissed off.

    Fans have to accept that the club is in a no-win situation through a situation entirely out of its own hands.

    Surely it will be as simple as anyone who had a current season card goes into a draw for a ticket if they want one.

    If any happen to be leftover then it will go to previous season card holders or on points.

    I can’t see how this is complicated? Anyone who has kept a season card throughout lockdown despite not being able to attend should get preference.

    I thought it was going to be 25% of capacity. Wouldn’t that be 12,000 anyway?

    If rules stay the same it is 25% of capacity or 10,000 whichever is the lower

    Whoever goes please sing your hearts out for the lads. For all the players have their deficiencies I haven't seen lack of effort.

    Under 18s were not allowed into Wembley for the Carabo Cul Final if that's of any relevance.
