Huddersfield Send Back Two Blocks Of Tickets
Wednesday, 1st May 2019 10:06

The Huddersfield game was heading for a sell out in the euphoria of Saints confirming Premier League safety but now there are more tickets available for Saints fans wanting to go to the final game of the season.

After the entertaining draw against Bournemouth at the weekend and the realisation dawning on some that with a couple of quality signings in key areas Ralph Hasenhuttl might just do something next season, tickets had been going fast over the last few days for the visit of Huddersfield on the final day.

Indeed in the normal home areas there were probably less than 600 tickets available which given the game is still 11 days away is virtually unprecedented in the last couple of seasons with even games like Spurs only selling out on the day before the game and several other's that usually would like Man Utd and Arsenal failing to do so such was the disillusionment in the Saints fan base up until recently.

But something changed as February turned into March and suddenly those who were at the games noticed it, there was a change in mindset both on and off the field, for the first time in a couple of years there was a feeling of hope and after the win over Spurs of pure happiness and most of which has happened since has not dispelled that feeling.

The last game of the season is always popular a combination of good weather and perhaps the fact that there won't be another game for the best part of three months sees to bring out a sell out crowd.

Sales have been so good it seems that Saints have been speaking to Huddersfield and it seems that even through this could be their last Premier League game for the foreseeable future that they are not going to sell anywhere near the full allocation and therefore have returned two blocks of tickets meaning that around 1,500 extra seats are now on sale to Saints supporters.

A couple of hundred of these have already been sold so the demand is clearly there, so if you are planning to go act quickly.

Can't really blame the Huddersfield fans. Probably their furthest trip of the season, for a nothing game. Already down for a month.
Hopefully we can sell what they return and have a nice carnival atmosphere to see off the season.

It would take a really-dedicated Hud'field fan to travel South and (potentially) see his side beaten again (having already lost 1-3 at Home to Saints) and knowing they are already relegated.

The gate for that earlier game was a bit over 22,000 and so one wonders how many of them would want to watch what is certainly their last Prem. game - for a while, at least.

Maybe we can expect a lot of empty seats in that corner of the Northam - the real question is: How many Saints' fans will turn up to see a game against such dour opposition?
"No guarantees without a washing machine" (said Ralph when he arrived) - so for the last game of the season let's hope it isn't Saints who get " taken to the cleaners ".
