Do "Waiting List" punters have a chance of a ST?

I have renewed, however I have seen loads of people say they won't if fans aren't allowed in till January. One of the guys from H&H podcast said he won't be renewing last night.
Regardless of whether we get in or not, the club need the money. Surely that's apparent?
Chris likes to shout about a lot of stuff and when it comes down to it, I'm no so sure he'd given it up that easily. He seems very reactionary.

Slightly off topic, but how does friends and family work in terms of payment, if we are paying separately? If I set up online do I do his aswell with his payment details? Sorry if that’s a thick question

I think most will get an opportunity via their mygers memberships. It’s the main reason I think we’ll do 40k-45k season tickets this season regardless of matches BCD etc.

There’s still an appetite I believe from those that haven’t managed to get a ST previously to pick up the slack 2020/21. 21/22 might be harder to get those numbers as a recession is inevitable.
I agree regards ST uptake. I reckon it'll be on a par with last year despite no games until whenever.

Where the club will struggle though is on the remaining 5k tickets that usually go on public sale. Surely no one if picking them up on a bi weekly basis in the current circumstances...

...unless they're wanting to increase MyGers points

I want to get my boy one. But he has no MyGers points as the RTV etc is in my name. They really should look at some way for parent and child to link accounts initially imo.
My boy is 6. I can't increase his MyGers MyGers points total taking him to games as I can't get him a ticket beside my ST.

If the ticketing operation was run properly, it'd be far easier for the club to pair people together. There's loads of people who sit at the games on their own who could move a seat or to to put pairs together but it can't be done just now.

The gauling thing for me is I had two for decades and when my Dad stopped going a few years bac through I'll health, I kept it on for a while with mates using it. Come the boycott year though, I I them both up to help the club. When I went to renew after the regime change, I could only get a single seat kn the same area as folk had pounced to buy them during the boycott as they're the best seats in Ibrox.

It's not an easy thing to figure out but it's stopping new kids beginning to go to the games as the ST uptake is at capacity

I agree mate. We need to find a way to allow young kids that opportunity to go and sit next to guys who have been going for years. I'm 20 years a ST holder but can't get my boy to the games as he can't get near me.

I don't really understand that reaction to this situation tbh. The club depends on season ticket money, that's a fact. If we decide not to buy them because of something out of the clubs hands we might not have a team to watch the following season, and that's another fact.
Not ideal but it's a unique situation.

Good Luck mate. The Club Deck gets a bad 'rep' on here but, generally, has a great view, though not quite so good if you are deep in the corners. The only issue I ever found with it was the leg room is a bit shorter than elsewhere in the Stadium.

You'll get a far better view of the game from the Club Deck than in the Broomloan or Copland imo.

Your view is seriously restricted for one end of the ground if you're sitting behind a goal.

I secured my 1st ST a year ago for CD5 and really enjoy the view and spotting the like of aberdoom dropping into their 1-5-5 shape. :)
Before I got the ST I had tickets in various parts of the ground and would be reluctant to move now. Helps that the guys around me are decent.
I renewed on the day the email came through and if BCD for the rest of the year then so be it.

According to the Heart and Hand daily update the other day renewals are just over the half way point. I've just renewed this morning.
50% take up is pretty good I'd say given the circumstances (big list of circumstances) not least of which is the two month renewal window.

I think if after signing up for mygers and do what you can to “get up the list” then single season books should be fine to buy. I was under the impression I was on the last list and will wait and see how next season develops before deciding on whether to sign up the mygers as I’m not completely comfortable with it being in place
Wouldn’t hang about too long as mygers is here for the foreseeable future

Absolutely. Think this is fair. I'd consider linking the merchandise as well if that counts when released. It's a bit of an unnecessary hassle to buy my own merchandise on my own MyGers then buy his on his.
yeahnot sure whether they will count merch this year or not . It would make sense to but when they announced mygers they never said they would . Might wait till next season

Unfortunate timing that they had to launch MyGers before the Castore announcement.

Beahon has said in his interviews that they expect MyGers customers to receive benefits like early strip release purchase and exclusive strips options though.

If the ticket office don’t sort out us who are trying to renew and still waiting for refunds then there might me a chance!

I've just been looking back on my emails and those on the waiting list receive an email a day or two before they went on general sale. That was for the 18/19 season.

Personal visit to TO asking for one, have your cash ready with a packet of Orange Club and you’ll be sorted. ;)

First i have heard about my gers members getting first dibs on season tickets if they are on the waiting list.

Cuellar Jnr & I have been on the list for over a year and you are telling me that people that come in and pay a subscription can jump the queue. If that is true its an absolute disgrace and getting more like Liverpool by the day.
I think that's the wrong interpretation of what is proposed. Those who have earned the most points by going to games would get greater access to STs.

From a fan and club perspective, it makes sense to reward those looking to go to the most games

Questions for clarification:
1)
If you just renew your season ticket and don't join MyGers, you're not eligible to apply for semi/final tickets?

2)
Supporters clubs must join MyGers and pay a fee for each member, to be eligible for access to domestic away tickets?

3)
As per point 2, supporters clubs will only be able to access semi/final by registering all members with MyGers?

4)
You have to be a MyGers member to obtain a ticket for a European away match?

5) MyGers is now EVERYTHING when it comes to following Rangers?
1. Incorrect, CCCS is the prerequisite for semi/finals tickets same as this year. MyGers offers additional prioirity though.
2. Incorrect.
3. RSCs Semi/Finals process hasn't changed.
4. Yes, MyGers has replaced/enveloped the travel club.
5. MyGers is our club membership - from a club perspective we want all fans to sign up and get involved but its not "EVERYTHING"

Regarding points 2 and 3 presumably the new categories will be based on the number of members and tenner a head paid so it's not the same as last year?

The question was:

2)

- that is not correct. RSCs don’t have to have their members join MyGers to be eligible for access to tickets.
They do have to pay a registration fee of £10 per adult and £5 per concession/child to have them registered for categorisation points.

3 -the process of allocation for semis/finals will be based on categories the same as last year. The categories themselves may change but the allocation process is the same. Categories were always based on registration points. We’ve just tweaked them for this year and added a registration fee payable by each rsc member who wishes to register with their club.

That doesn't sound as good as your previous answer and I would hazard a guess that that was the question they were trying to ask not what you replied to. A good politician's answer :))

Does that mean someone can pay a tenner for their supporters club (and be in their ballots) and join the MyGers scheme themselves and have a double chance of tickets then?

I thought part of the idea behind MyGers was to avoid that.

Yeah, I agree that people who've been going to games should 100% be in line first for STs.

It is an issue for those of us (with existing STs with young kids looking to start going to the games though.

I can't take him to games just now as I can't get a 2nd seat near (let alone beside) me and he can't start accumulating MyGers points on that basis.

Dunno how that is resolved along forward...

the waiting list is still to be launched so let’s just see what the club come up with.

we haven’t eliminated RSC allocations. MyGers away reform is about sorting the individual ticket allocation.

Yeah, I'm keen to see what they do.

Don't think there's a solution to it all though unless the club start moving people from seats where they've sat individually for years to accomodate groups of two or more wanting to sit together.

Afterall, many people who "sit on their own" have now become pals with the people in their area.

Leaves many of the same issue as before then, no? Individual allocation (lack thereof) of tickets was partly a problem because people in RSCs had two chances at a ticket.

I do welcome MyGers and the points based scheme. It's going to take a good few alterations of the first draft before it works suitably I reckon.

MyGers should put tickets into the hands of those most who attend most games which takes pressure off the manipulation of the system with “additional” cccs sign ups. Fixing that aspect will have a big affect. Combining that with a truer figure on the RSC front will be a big help. we will monitor it’s success

Do you know if after June 30th when the list opens up, if they will be offered in order of gold/silver/bronze or will it be a free for all for anyone on MyGers? Cheers

i doubt it will be tiered as gold silver and blond will be set with away allocations in mind.
They will do it on points
