The club does not have to stop selling membership cards because it does not guarantee you a seat/ticket for the QLE. It is first come first served.

Don't the membership cards also give ticket priority for big games ?
If so, then there has to be a cut off point otherwise we could have local premiership fans buying one just to jump the queue for 3rd round FA cup tickets.

Added together that's pretty much the same as season ticket sales for last season (2,400). Taking into account that there was no Early Bird offer, I'd imagine there's been little in the way of lost revenue.

Got my QLE membership card on Monday.
Notice that there is no membership number and it is just a plain card with the clubs emblem on.
Does this mean that when ordering tickets on line before the match day, that there will be no facility to print your own tickets when the membership card is used. Unless there is name checking against the club database, at point of sale, surely the club has no way of checking whether the buyer, truly, is the owner of a membership card.
If it is just a tick box on the payment site then surely it will be open to abuse.
I may be looking at this all wrong, but i would just like somebody to explain how it will work?

It is in the Q&A every time there is a story on the official website about the QLE membership

I’d disagree, if those with membership cards had season tickets last year as the numbers suggest, the club has had £20 instead of a couple of hundred on average from each person. They might recoup the money throughout the season, but I’d imagine the club is around £100k worse off in terms of money brought in to the club through ticket sales than what it was at this time last season.

We need to have a strong season to make ensure those with memberships have an incentive to come each week as I doubt they’d be fussed about the £20 they paid months ago if we’re midtable at Christmas - hopeful that we will have a good year!

QLE members normally get priority after season ticket holders so provided there's any left after season ticket holders have theirs then QLE comes next. Youve then got 2 or three days before they go on normal sale. Last season there was always some available.

I don't think you have taken into account the additional revenue from the considerable increase in away admission.

I'll come what may for the big games this coming season and use my QL Membership card, I will also try and get a few other games in as well. We all try and support the Stags whichever way we can.

That's what I was saying. If we don't have a cut off point when we stop selling the membership cards and we reach the 3rd round and draw a premiership team, local fans of that club could buy a QLE membership and give themselves priority for getting a ticket in the home end. Then we could have regular fans who are not season ticket holders missing out on tickets.

I would argue that most regular fans have QLE card or a season ticket and I'm sure the club won't complain about people having to pay £32 for a home game.

I would think SSA Amber members would get priority over QLE members as they pay more
