I should have added, season ticket holders will get another email to enter another ballot. I'm not sure what the deal is with away supporters and that at the moment. 

If I was the club, I wouldn't sell any away tickets unless every 'Well that wants to attend gets one.

Hibs tickets applied for. Annoying as there's 5 of us sit together but can only add 3 to my application. Looks like me or the Mrs might be sitting on our jack Jones if we are not in the same stand.

"I'm really sorry, dear - I'd  have loved it if you were sitting beside me, but the ticketing system MADE me put you up in the back row of the South Stand. Give us a wee wave to let us know you arrived safely."

I'd be stuck with two teenagers and a 5 y/o. I might "take one for the team" and sit alone

Thought the stewards in the John Hunter did a marvelous job today NOT. Apparently 2 rows between supporters, everything seemed Ok. Then a group of about 8 arrive start fist pumping others and congregate in a group. Stewards are about 15 feet away and ignore situation, even when the bottles come out the bags and they start drinking. Don't know why wasn't found on entry as plenty of families were getting bags searched on entry. Obviously only there for a wage.

I see Hibs have announced that they have been given 2000 seats for the game this weekend.

2 thousand? I think we should have been prioritising a general sale for the home support first. There are plenty regulars who don't buy a season ticket.

Yeah I agree, strange that we all need to apply and hope for the best. What is our season ticket number roughly? Just over 5000 or so? It was Hibs that officially announced this an hour or so ago.  It'll be frustrating if some season ticket holders miss out while away fans get in. I'm also assuming the 2000 fan's is now on top of the 4500 well fans.

First game of the season usually has a good thousand or so on top of the ST holders attendance. So there are going to be a good few Well fans missing out here.

I'm also assuming the 2000 Dan's is now on top of the 4500 well fans. 

I read it is now only one seat distance so our 4500 ST fans will be accommodated relatively easily between the 3 home stands. I also saw Flow say there will be a number of general sale tickets over and above the normal walk up crowd for a home game. Granted this is a different game and like many I did not make League Cup home games. 

That plus free season tickets are just that. Free. 2000 Hibs fans would equate to £40k plus in much needed revenue. Edit to add - would there have been an extra 2000 Well fans that would have attended ? Then there might be a gripe…chances are Hibs will sell out that allocation where we might not have sold extra 2000 tickets on top of 4500 season ticket holders….

So in summary I doubt any ST fans will miss out. Yes there may be some Well fans that would have liked to have gone. They will just have to be quick when the General sales comes about.

Perhaps the increased numbers and  seating plan approved by the Local Authority means we can accommodate all our ST fans in the usual home seating areas, with seats still available for non ST holders?  In which case MFC will already know that the South Stand will be empty if Hibs fans are not allowed to attend the match. Economically it makes sense to allow away fans to purchase tickets as soon as possible. About £40,000 worth of sense.

I very much doubt that any Motherwell fan wanting to attend the match will be refused a ticket.

Yeah it's on TV. In fairness the last two games at Fir Park against Hibs that fans could attend brought a crowd of just under 6000. I wonder how it will work for our tickets, I assume just a random seat in our normal stand.

Sounds like it. The announcement on the official site says that they expect season ticket holders to be in their usual stand, but not their usual seat.

Will it be freely available to anyone with a TV?

Are the club continuing their live streaming for stay at home season ticket holders? It is not really suitable for me to travel through to a 4.30 ko on a Sunday evening.
