Owls Season Ticket Changes

Owls Season Ticket Changes

The club have today announced that ALL Owls fans will be required to have photo ID on their season tickets from next season on health and safety grounds.

The news has angered many Wednesday fans who 'loan' their season tickets to friends and family when they can't attend a match - labelling the club along the same lines as 'big brother'.

An article on the official SWFC site read: 'The main reason for introducing photographic identification is a result of health and safety issues. Specifically, during the 2006/07 certain supporters, particularly in the North Stand, have been borrowing season tickets to gain access to an area other than that for which their match tickets are allocated.

'As a consequence this has caused the possibility of overcrowding and the local authorities are extremely concerned about this, requesting the Club to formulate contingency plans to prevent it happening in future.'

But the club have announced that should fans not be able to attend for one reason or another, season tickets can still be exchanged at the ticket office for corresponding match tickets - although the routine may seem too much for some Wednesdayites.

The club have already taken stick from hardcore fans after introducing the now defunct Owls Away Card (OAC) which was used a few seasons ago for Wednesday fans to attend away matches.

But the scheme took a hammering from fans and some away grounds allowed non-OAC fans to get in their respective grounds to earn more money from ticket sales.

It's expected the club will receive a number of complaints from fans, with some Owls fans already venting their frustrations on the official Vital Sheffield Wednesday message board.
