    I think it's because those points were awarded before it was known we would be playing some cup games at Wembley. If you joined the scheme it's kind of on suspension as of now, as you still have to buy your ticket for cup games, so you get the buying-a-ticket points instead. I think.

    I have 322 and this is the first I managed to get off 4/5 applications.

    Seen it mentioned in a few places that corporate ticket holders get access to away tickets and with the new stadium that amount has increased considerably. Hence renaming Loyalty points to Ticketing points... could be gonads though.

    I get invited to apply for all away fixtures, although I didn't expect it.

    Looking to bring the little lad over to the Wolves game on 29th December for his first Spurs game. I was trying to pick a game we'd probably win and Burnley and Southampton just didn't suit.

    Will I have any problems getting a couple of tickets?

    Always used too but in a ballot system for big games and loyalty points for others the same as season ticket holders

    No idea if that’s the same now though

    Depends what membership you have and what capacity is allowed.

    As things stand Wembley's capacity will be capped at 51k for the rest of the season but Spurs have applied for it to be raised to 62k for (I'm guessing) most PL games and to 90k for Cat A matches. If your membership is One Hotspur or better, and assuming we're allowed 62k, I doubt you'd have a problem, but if it's only 51k that might be more difficult.

    Saying that more and more fans seem to be totally tinkled off with Wembley these days so who knows?

    Ridiculous that we got over 5000 tickets and the cut off was still so high considering WHU was 99 points. I realise it’s a big game and scum away will always be a big draw but I would have thought at least some people would swerve it as we’re playing them in just a few weeks time and it’s not like we haven’t played them in years.

    Maybe they should open 10-20% of tickets to a ballot with the other 80-90% going to ST holders with the highest number of points.

    As it stands it would appear that the same people get the away tickets time and again. Thus constantly increasing the gap between those that can and those that can't (loyalty points wise). Those that use their tickets and travel to support the team every other week (and I'm sure they're the vast majority) hats off but those that sell them on should be getting some sort of sanction imho.

    Without wanting to labour the point, for me every home game is an "away" game (400+ mile round trip - Wembley or WHL) so I get a bit p!ssed off when I can't see us when we're playing up here, like at the 30 minute drive that's Huddersfield. I know it ain't gonna happen but I'd love it if my season could go back to all the away games north of Watford and half a dozen or so trips to The Lane.

    Away tickets are so cheap and popular, they should maybe stop awarding loyalty points, to stop people buying and selling them for that reason.
    As much as it was a pain in eindhoven, collecting tickets at the game with a passport would also sort that out, they need to put on more than two bloody booths though.

    Yeah! It's called the "350+ Ticketing Points Ticket":D

    And assuming oversubscription you get access to the "Ticket Exchange by Twitter.Com"

    This new bag policy at Wembley is ridiculous. I mainly only go to midweek games after work which means I normally have a bag with me. Wasn’t one to stay away from Wembley as we weren’t back in Tottenham but this unfriendly approach by Wembley will stop me going there again during the week.

    It is going to be a pain for midweek games where I plan to work from home the following day.
    I've just read that Wembley have now agreed the Spurs transparent 'bag for life' is acceptable - but that doesn't help if you have a laptop.
    However, it seems that there are bad drop facilities. Great, I thought. Then I read on - £10 to store a bag for a couple of hours!
    I understand the need for security (and most of the bag checks I've been through at Wembley have been pretty cursory) so I suppose it's just another thing we will have to get used to or find a workaround for.
    From recent THST/THFC Board meeting notes, it sounds as if the club are contemplating something similar for NWHL.

    £10 a bag? May as well leave it in your boot and park locally in someone's drive for that.

    At least they are allowing us to take the Bag for Life in now. Now where did I put it!
