9,200 sold as of just now. My figure was about 30 below The Curragh's figure last night, so about 40 sold overnight. Many blocks are now sold out and many have only a handful of single tickets remaining.
The new Block 26 in the North Stand is now half sold, selling quickly, and will probably sell out, which only leaves the end block with any number of seats left. Jim Smith Stand has single seats only in most blocks, with only Block 21, nearest the North Stand, with any number of seats. I think this stand might look pretty impressive today, if the surfer flag is out again? South Lower is mostly sold out, with the usual exception of the two blocks closest to the fence. South Upper has only 70 seats left and they're nearly all in the fence end block, and will almost certainly sell out.
I'm going to stick to my forecast of 9,400 Oxford fans and 800 Lincoln, giving a total of 10,200, but I'm hoping that might be exceeded. It's certain that the 10,000 target will be met though.
I'd love you to be right, but the maximum home capacity today is 10,305 with half of Block 26 open. To get 11,000, with Lincoln expected to bring 800, we'd have to sell out all of our allocation, and there is currently little evidence that that will happen, sorry. Everything is factored in for all areas and this is not just random guesswork, but based on actual sales and buying patterns.I’d go higher, I reckon we’ll get just over 11000. If we have 500 unsold, they have 500 empty seats and a few hundred for segregation.
do the dot counters include boxes and disabled area which combined makes about 350 more?
Anyway, I need to get ready to leave, so no more posts from me today. COYY.
