Following this week’s announcement regarding ticket distribution for our Danske Bank Premiership fixture with Crusaders on Friday, October 5, Cliftonville Football Club received several enquiries as to the reasoning behind the decision.
The Club can assure all our supporters that, as always, our priority is to ensure the safety, comfort and enjoyment of our fans both at home and at away games and we remain hugely appreciative of the support you provide on a weekly basis.
While additional ticketing measures have been put in place for the North Belfast Derby, we believe that all Reds fans who wish to attend this game will be able to do so.
Subsequent to an incident after our recent match in Warrenpoint, it became apparent that steps were necessary to minimise any impact that this may have on our Club and supporters.
The Seaview ticket distribution method is a means of assisting in this regard. It will help control who has access to tickets, by distribution through our Members and Season Ticket holders to all our regular supporters, whom we are naturally assured will help in diminishing the chance of tickets ending up in the hands of people who have little regard for Cliftonville FC.
While we understand the inconvenience and are sympathetic of the concerns expressed, we are confident that all supporters who wish to attend this game will be able to access a ticket. However, should there be any supporters unable to obtain a ticket via a Member or Season Ticket holder, we ask that you email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Club will seek to reserve a ticket on your behalf.
The Club further wish to assure our supporters that we will not tolerate any behaviour that would tarnish the name of Cliftonville FC or endanger our supporters by such actions. Other steps may be employed in the future to eradicate those who think they can attach themselves to our Club for their own motives
We appreciate your understanding and support.
