They've now confirmed the prices are the same for their fans but still nothing from our end. I'm planning on going to this one.

Never been to Bescott for a game so might make the short journey for this one.

Can we go to the ticket office to get tickets for this or is it all over the phone? I'm not going through the farce that is the Albion tickets land-line on this one.

And I never want to go through the farce of the Albion ticketing account app.

Absolute rubbish

I order all mine online and never had a problem, but I do it through my laptop not a phone app. Looking forward to this one, particularly if we sell out.

Is the Fullbrook still open? I drove past it the weekend and it had a load of Circus posters up the windows so presume it has shut?

Tickets for this supposedly on sale today, just had a mooch round the tickets page and haven't found anything so far any one else had any luck?
Edited to add found a link on the 'news' page so now sitting in a 10 minute long queue to get in
And the payment page has a broken link!!!!  >:(
Usual ******* shambles second on line failure so going to have to head down to the ticket office next!

Again, just got mine no problem at all, I just chose the 'pick me the best seats' option and assigned owners to both tickets, paid and done, took about ten mins in the queue beforehand, decent seats in block H10 behind the goal too but im sure Walsall (pre covid) was just sit anywhere policy anyway.

You're not alone Frank ..... all the fun in the world according to the Twitter responses on the club's timeline. I'm not sure whether to bother with away tickets for the season ahead while the club appears happy selling them via a platform which seems unfit for purpose.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Just been through the same and I am not sure if I have got tickets or not.... got to payment page, paid, acknowledged by my bank but then got an error message on the site.

What a rubbish system.

I finally managed to get my tickets sorted in the end.

I had the option of collecting my tickets from either the Albion or Walsall for £1.75 - absolutely disgraceful.

Having to pay to collect the tickets. Daylight robbery.

My mates have had the option for posting but I never had that option.

That option was the first one where you had to confirm an address, that was £1.75 too!

Yes mate, thats the one. Will probably go there then beforehand as I reckon thats the nearest in walking distance, actually we might just go Spoons Wednesbury and get a taxi up, decisions decisions

I never had anything about confirming an address.

I just selected my tickets, assigned them, chose my collection point and paid.

My account has my address details as its on my account page and on the receipt they provided.

I wouldn't mind paying the £1.75 if they were being posted to me  :D

Same for me Liam, eventually got mine sorted after help from Liz at the ticket office. I too am paying myself £1.75 for the honour of collecting my tickets from the office....

Yep ended up going down the ground to purchase me ticket and got charged an extra £1.75 for the privilege. Perhaps I should invoice 'em for me milage and petrol?

Correction. Still the odd seats in the away end and a few in the other stand, they’ll be gone by this time tomorrow.

With the cost of public transport on top of the 'doing the job people are sat there and paid to do fee' I'd have been looking at anywhere between £5 and £8.65 for the pleasure of picking up a ticket for a pre season friendly before the price of the pre season friendly ticket was accounted for.

Add afternoon and evening refreshments and I'm very much out. Never mind, the weather forecast isn't great anyway. All of the very best and COYB.
