A local derby! And surely a chance to put our FA hoodoo to bed???

Ticket allocation is tricky isn't it?  Of the 70 or so regular away fans about half travel using the heavily subsidised coach so it could be argued that priority goes to those who paid their own way.

Personally I think priorities should be:

Priority 1: Platinum Package and Premium Package owners.

Priority 2: Gold Card Season ticket holders

Priority 3: Season ticket holders

Don’t feel that would be fair personally. I’ve not missed a game yet this season been to mousehole up to Hartlepool and everywhere else in between. If we were to miss out on tickets because somebody can afford to invest more than we did I’d feel a bit gutted tbh. 

No idea how the club can do it but I sincerely hope the usual away fans are looked after first. It’s the fairest way imo. At a guess there would still be in excess of 200 tickets left once that 70/80 usual lot have their share.

In other related FA Cup news, I see Aldershot have just announced ticket prices for their 4th Q tie with Lewes - a very competitive £12 for adults and £2 under 17s.

I think it is safe to say this will be the page address for the Horsham home end tickets

So, what we know:

Dorking are selling our own allocation themselves;

6pm tonight for Season ticket holders, Gold card holders and club investors via emailed link

1 ticket per purchase

and from the Horsham website:

- Separate turnstiles for Dorking fans

- Unsegregated once within the ground

- the limited number of seats in the ground are first come first served (arrive very early for those)

- Horsham end ticket purchases will be checked for postcodes (so think carefully about that...)

@dorking-eagle Sounds to me like they are being flexible and there is no specific 'allocation'.

Bit of a strange hybrid plan - especially the bit about no segregation. Changing ends in a capacity crowd will be interesting. As would any last minute goals/controversy etc. Not the best idea imo.

My understanding is that the total 'allocation' that Dorking have to sell via our own website is 300. Hence the fairly strict qualification criteria and 1 per transaction.  Which could be a pain for anyone with multiple season tickets linked to one ticketing account as mine is (I asked Ollie to look into mine to see if he can tweak it to allow for multiple purchase). 

If I get in the ground early enough I will probably just choose a bit of perimeter rail that is not particularly at either end, but not in front of a stepped terrace, and then just stay put in that one spot for the whole game to be honest.

I suspect the no segregation inside the ground is mainly because they don't want to have to provide another set of toilets and separate catering.

So as a non DW Season Ticket holder, club investor etc, basicly I've got no chance of getting my hands on one of the 300 tickets allocated to us...

@bigfatbeanz

It's unlikely - but...you could try buying from the Horsham website - depends if your postcode is obviously a Dorking one?

Or, and I'm not encouraging this of course (!) - do you have any friends who live nearer Horsham than Dorking who have a more likely postcode?

If you go down that route you'll need to wait for the Horsham general sale timeslot but you'll have a good chance I'm sure - and as it's unsegregated in the ground - what does it matter!

Set up [                edited             ] . Ultimately the tickets are sent to you via email.

Log in at 6pm Saturday (bit of a pain halfway through the Barnet game I know). Job done. Make sure [  edited  ]   once inside it is unsegregated so really don't know why it matters to Horsham FC or anyone else what your real address is.

Good news is the ticket sale for Horsham FA Cup tickets went well, 190 sold. 

So tickets remain for the general sale later

I hope that everyone who wanted tickets got them. Those that were left in the Dorking allocation 'general sale' sold very quickly despite the daft on sale time halfway through the Barnet game.

If I'm being honest I think the 'allocation' was rather mean considering it is totally unsegregated within the stadium. At least that is something DW do well - fair and generous away allocations

@dorking-eagle I agree - 500 would have been much more reasonable. Also still don't get why the separate turnstiles for home and away - then totally unsegregated?
