Update: Bromley vs Wrexham

Following dialogue with the Supporters’ Board and to provide a further update to supporters in general please find the below;

Firstly, thank you to the Supporters’ Board for pulling together a summary of the various questions and issues raised by supporters.

In responding, we’re keen to share some context around decisions made. Given the generous pricing of season tickets, we attracted a record number of supporters hitting almost 3,000. To date, the average number of those who attend a fixture is 1,099. This number has only surpassed 1,250 on four occasions this season, with the largest number for a single fixture being 1,587 which was against Oldham back in September. Therefore, as mentioned, we needed to put a control measure in place for this fixture in order for us to factor in season ticket holders’ attendance more accurately and therefore make as many tickets as possible available for general spectators. In total, including season ticket holders and general admission tickets, the club averages 2,093 home fans per game, so depending on additional season ticket take up, and despite the increased away allocation, there would still potentially be close to 1,750 tickets available for further home supporters beyond our regular average.

The Club would like to thank those supporters who have ‘claimed’ their tickets with circa 80% of those who have attended more than five fixtures this season having already claimed their tickets.

In relation to the specific points received from the board;

Was the north stand the only possible option? Could Wrexham not have been given the whole of the East terrace? Will Wrexham still get the usual part of the East terrace that away fans have along with the north stand?

Given the need to use electronic turnstiles for this fixture, to enable safe and controlled entry for both home and away spectators, the only option is to provide access to the North Terrace. The alternative electronic turnstiles are of course located next to Broomfields which would not be appropriate. Our usual away end does not have electronic turnstiles. Could we have extended the away terracing area across the East Stand? Yes, but that would not solve the issue of visiting supporters having to enter via the electronic turnstiles located in the North West corner of the stadium. Visiting supporters will be spread across the North Terrace and the usual away terracing section in the North East corner.

Will plans change if as it is likely that Wrexham don’t sell as many as first thought due to the planned train strikes due to happen that Friday/Saturday

We will of course keep on top of ticket sales daily and where possible alter plans, should this be required.

Are Wrexham fans being given access to the Ravens lounge? If so will they be charged the standard £5 entrance that Bromley fans have to pay

No. We have now managed arrangements in order for Ravens Lounge not to be relocated and therefore continue to be accessible and available to Bromley supporters on the usual terms, i.e booked online in advance for £5 via our ticketing website here >

In addition, we are also conscious there is a group of vocal supporters who wish to stand / be located next to each other as usual to create a vibrant atmosphere to back the boys on the pitch. Should you wish to reach out to the Club we would be happy to work together and look at organising a dedicated area for this fixture.

As always, we strive to do our best and do not claim to get everything right first time. We are set for three fantastic crowds and games over the coming two weeks, as ever thank you for your continued support.
