With many season ticket holders unhappy with current seats and relocations on the horizon, please share any information that you have or if you’ve been successful.

I know the club have now opened up applications to be sent through, maximum group size of 6 (I believe).

It would be really good if I could trace the group I used to sit with at the old ground. We were all split up with the 2 moves, to Wembley and back again.

Did you not keep in contact with any of them? Now might be your chance to sit together again.

I'm currently sat between an 80 year old woman (bless her soul, kindest woman I've ever met) and a middle aged man with anger issues, not to mention two of my students from work sit a row in front of me (I'm a teacher). Not what I imaged when moving back home! :sorry: I need this relocation to happen, south stand preferably.

The change to Wembley split us up a bit, but the change back to the new ground was very chaotic and it didn't work out.

I filled out the form but was expecting some kind of automated email response to acknowledge it - apparently some people received this while others haven't

That’s weird. I didn’t receive an email after filling out the application. Might phone up and double check it was actually received.

I wonder how easy it is to move in a group. I have 2 season tickets in mine and the wife’s name and then there’s two mates and the 4 of us sit in a row and want to move somewhere else in the south stand. Or if it’s only a case of being able to move season tickets you own personally so all 4 of us can’t move together.

That's about 70% of our fanbase, right there.

I've applied. In truth I'd just like to be nearer the pitch in the east upper, rather than up in the rafters. But I'm not going to be too fussed if I can't.

You can move up to 6 together, you just need the details of the other ticlets and then them on the form too

Is there some sort of coordinated effort around this to get noisier fans sitting together?

Am in the South Lower, near the corner with the West Stand (Block 258), and whilst we've got a good atmosphere here for most of the big games, atmosphere-wise things seemed to die down once the new season started. It may be the case around the entire ground but I can't help but feel it's a bit louder to my right hand side.

Is the 1882 movement still a thing? I know we're never going to get the entire ground rocking for an early kickoff at home to Norwich, but for me then the majority of the fun in going to games is the atmosphere and the crowd around me - I sometimes think that if nobody else is going to bother then I'd rather just watch on TV and just pick and choose the big games.

Maybe all fans who want to sing and stand every week should pick a couple of blocks and sit together?

I believe there was a club consultation with fans about repositioning people and moving large groups into the south stand, but I’m not sure how far that got. I think that would make such a massive impact.

As for the 1882 section right across the heart of the South Stand.....don’t get me started 😡 Hopefully the club will see sense and put it in premium sections of the stadium! If it wasn’t for that section I would have got my seat in the south stand.

Will there be safe standing in the North Stand also?

The problem is that you need to renew your current season ticket before the relocation process starts. I want to relocate to a block where the Senior Concession rate applies but I don't want to be right behind the goal. This means there are limited blocks available to me. I can't really justify spending the £1200+ I am currently paying but there is no guarantee, if I do renew, that a suitable seat will be available. Even if there is a suitable seat, will they refund the c£700 straight away or will it just be a credit.

They should have started the relocation process before ST renewals. As it is I probably won't renew my season ticket.

I prioritised that last time. We used to be in Block G, which was East Upper near the Park Lane, but when I tried to reproduce that in the new stadium, the only available seats were way up and my partner is too small to see properly from up there, even with the steep rake.

So we got seats in the corresponding position at the north end of the East upper, where we're in the fourth row, but it's too close to the visiting fans below and the sun shines straight in your eyes when there's a late kickoff. I'd love to move "back" to where I wanted to be in the first place, but I expect there won't be any suitable seats.

And this, too. When the stadium was being built, I wasn't old enough to qualify. Now I am, but I'm having to blow about a grand a year because I don't want to be buried in the middle of whatever we call the Paxton nowadays.

I assume they're using the same system for moves as they're using for refunds. I received this email when I applied for a refund which doesn't fill me with confidence as I would expect that top section to contain the actual details I entered, not a load of gibberish! I think this ended up in my spam folder, so it's worth checking there if you haven't already.

East upper is pretty much where I've always sat, since I first started going regular when I first moved to London, 11 years ago. It had a good atmosphere, and a good view... I'm one of the dwindling numbers who still partake in the Parkside/shelfside duet.

But as I'm one of the Wembley season ticket crowd, I was pretty low priority, and the best I could get to replicating my favoured area of being level with the centre line up there, was row 26 of 527. Which is fair enough... But if I can get further down I'd be pleased.

Similar. I’m in the North Upper / west corner. Not really anything wrong but would like to move down a dozen rows or so.
