The games themselves tend to be less hostile with neither clubs having any derogatory chants for one another really, but after the game is a different story. You really needed your wits about you after the cup game a couple of years ago - there was a huge turnout from both club's firms and Digbeth High Street was like a bandit country after the game.

Never seen anything too serious myself,
Many years ago, I went to Blues / Villa once with the steamers from the hole in the wall (yes that long ago). That was interesting.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Been to blues last 5 or 6 times we’ve played them, always walk from around Bennett’s Hill through Digbeth and not seen anything at all really. FA Cup game a load of Albion got train to New Street but we’re just escorted all the way.

Not all of us were in that escort. Loads of splinter groups that day.

I hope you didn't misunderstand my post, I meant that I was glad we have 2800 as we need a decent turnout and there should be less complaints from our fans about getting tickets, I wasn't having a dig about rumours. Obviously I may have misunderstood your post!

ALBION can today confirm ticket details for our first West Midlands derby of the season when we face Birmingham City on Friday, September 14.

The Club has taken the maximum allocation of 2,800 for the clash at St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium (ko 7.45pm).

Prices are £20 Adults, £15 for seniors (65 and over) and the 19-24 age category, £10 for 13-18 age group and £5 for under-13s.

Because of an expected high demand, the loyalty points system will apply and sales dates, with the first batch available to our away season ticket holders from tomorrow.

Sales dates:

Thursday, August 23: Away Season Ticket Holders (online, in person & phone from 9am)

Tuesday, August 28: Home Season Ticket Holders with 1575 points or more (online, in person & phone from 9am)

Wednesday, August 29: Home Season Ticket Holders with 1550 points or more (online from 9am, in person from 9am & phone from 10am)

Thursday, August 30: Home Season Ticket Holders with 1540 points or more (online, in person & phone from 9am) subject to availability

Friday, August 31: Home Season Ticket Holders with 1535 points or more (online, in person & phone from 9am) subject to availability

Saturday, September 1: Season Ticket Holders with 1500 points or more (online, in person & phone from 9am) subject to availability

Monday, September 3: All Season Ticket Holders regardless of points (online, in person & phone from 9am) subject to availability

Tuesday, September 4: Members: (online, in person & phone from 9am) subject to availability

Wednesday, September 5: General sale (online from 9am, in person from 9am & phone from 10am) subject to availability

Points Allocation:

Season Ticket purchase - 1000 points
Season renewal - 500 points
League match purchase - 5 points
Cup match purchase - 10 points

Points totals are based on purchases made in both the current season 2018/19 and in the previous season 2017/18.

Here's an example for a supporter with 1540 points:

1000 points from their 2018/19 season ticket purchase

500 points from their 2017/18 renewal

25 points from five league games in the 2017/18 season

10 points from their Luton Town ticket

5 points from their Nottingham Forest ticket

Please note points are based at Tuesday, August 21 and points for Mansfield will not be included.

It needs to be those tickets will go in no time. I already know of Albion fans going in the Blues sections regardless.

 :'(I’ve got 1610 so I’m all good but people with lower points I wouldn’t worry too much. I always think with Albion if you want a ticket so bad you will get one from somewhere, I even managed to get a Exeter one last year in the end.

Get yourself up Birmingham match day if they do sell out before you can get one officially, there are always plenty knocking about and pretty much always face value

The initial allocation is for those who've renewed their season tickets (1500 points) and attended a minimum of fifteen away League games over the last two seasons (75 points at five per game taking the total to 1575). That or a few less if augmented by Cup attendances at 10 points per game over the same period.

Prediction:

The ticket site will become bogged down with everyone in the initial allocation category trying to buy at the same time and so on as we move through the eligibility criteria. The phones will also go down or callers will be backed up in a queue. Frustrated abuse will then be directed at the ticket office and club in general via social media and there'll be calls for an increased allocation.

Sales will slow before picking up again. All regular away travellers in need of a ticket should get one. On the other hand some who travel less frequently will convince themselves they won't get a ticket, so don't even try for them and miss out. The blame for this will then be laid at the feet of Blues, Mark Jenkins or WMP - delete as appropriate. This will allow a fair old chunk of even less frequent away attendees to attend the game.

2,800 tickets for a Friday night game which is on the box isn't a bad amount. It's certainly better than the 300 we got for Exeter away and the 1,800 which were requested by the club for Liverpool in the Cup last season. And let's be honest, there were more than a few none regulars in attendance at both of those fixtures. Message to all who wish to attend. Do not be deterred by phone queues or a slow working ticket site.

All of the very best to all and COYB  8) .

I know, a faux par on my part but it's pretty obvious that I was referring to the loyalty points section.

Cheers all the same  ;D .

I’m eligible Wednesday so I’m confident. My brother who goes 2 less away games a season has 15 more points then me. I do all the assigning etc but makes no sense but anyway we’re both going to wait until Wednesday as I’ll think they’ll last until 9.30am Saturday (just a guess)..

One thing that I don't agree with on the loyalty points is that you get 5 points for buying a home ticket for someone else.

So for instance you could buy 23 home tickets for mates in a season and attend 0 away games and have 40 more loyalty points than someone who has attended 15 away matches but brought no home tickets for anyone else.

I have benefitted this season as I have brought tickets for other people for both home games but I still don't agree with it.

I buy away tickets on my son's behalf and Cup tickets for all of us (3) when required. When purchasing for my wife and son I always allocate the loyalty points to their season tickets in case they ever need them for a priority game. Just as well really as my lad's wanting to join me for the Blues game  ;D .

Anyone know how these tickets are going and if there are many left?  I can get mine on Friday, ideally wanted to wait for a friend who can get them on Saturday but wondered if either of us stood a chance really..
