QF tickets

QF tickets are now on sale to the general public from Leinster, via Ticketmaster; but Leinster have apparently not yet given us our allocation, and our club have not given us any update since the initial announcement on 25th January. It's not that I don't think we will get an allocation, or that I think it might not be enough for everyone who wants to travel. It's just that having booked non refundable flights and hotels for 4 people I like to get everything tied up asap: including tickets for the actual game!
I think EPCR should have a simple rule requiring home clubs to sort out the away team allocations before tickets go on general sale.

if you are that concerned about the Saracens allocation and wanting to get your whole trip finalised why not order directly through leinster?

They have a good range of ticket prices available across the ground

I agree with you; bad form to put tickets in general sale before the away club have their allocation all sorted

Completely agree VAP, they did this to us (Leicester) years ago when we drew them in the Quarters, we took thousands but you wouldn't know it with the official allocation up in the Gods and everyone else spread round. Don't expect EPRC to give any kind of complaint the time of day though.

I too like to get it all tied up, so purchased through Ticketshyster. Good seats too.

Waiting to get shot at, but - Sarries on Tour have an allocation on sale.

I bought mine direct too, before I originally posted, so it sounds like I might be right next to you Rusty Sword. Pretty bad if Sarries on Tour have organised a block of seats before either the SSA or the club, for its season ticket holders!

The worst example I have seen of the home club lacking the right spirit is Thomond Park, where they try to sell them only in pairs to away supporters, so we can't make any collective noise, or complain when they pretend to ask for quiet before our kicks at goal, and then shout out anyway. Interesting to see if Sarries on Tour have any more luck next time we draw Munster. Contrast with Clermont where they give us a few blocks of seats together, and some in very good places indeed; and they wouldn't struggle to sell those to home fans. So maybe it's an Irish club thing. That is why I think it has to be the competition organisers that sort it out: If the home team doesn't want to act in the right way, then make them.

To clarify.

In an attempt to ensure all sarries fans sit as close as possible the SSA have decided to help the club with the allocation and sit together in our given blocks. We will take some of the 25% we as a club are entitled to and have circa 250 waiting to confirm details.
We are in the hands of the home side sadly..

SoT decided to go direct to Leinster which is their choice. As they have often stated they are unofficial and unaffiliated and happy to do their own thing.

The SSA as the official association decided to support the club. Quite frankly I'm more concerned about finding a pilot than a ticket.

I understand that the allocation from Leinster is a pile of cr@p and a bit of a stitch up as to seats... poor form if true...

So everyone has all the info, the SoT allocation is in block 314. 54 Euros. That is the middle tier at one end.

Not sure how many they have left as I think they only had a few hundred to start with.

what happened to the 25% of all tickets in all price brackets that's part of the Cup regulations for pool matches and 1/4 finals

What happened was partially Irish nouse they, for example priced all the side seats the same 60 lower and 70 middle this enabled them to gve Sarries so called premium seats in the ends of the stands.

The other part is whilst 25% is available the Club is encouraged to be realistic by EPRc and not allowed to ask for 10K easts if they think they'll only shift 2k. So say Sarries ask for 3K then these are split between the price bands

The Munster thing may be a response to the tannoy drowning out the fields of athenry at VR
