Sorry if this has been posted already. Just seen on official Rotherham twitter feed that they are offering free match tickets to Saturday's game for those getting first or second covid vaccination on the day.

Just 500 tickets sold so far, very disappointing. With the low crowds for the pre-season home games especially the first game against Swansea it seems the appetite for the Big Return isn't there.
it will be when they go on general sale and it just show's how many season ticket holders go to away games and yes i know it is Rotherham south yorkshire, this is why i think the club should do some sort of away membership so if we do get a BIG away game in the cup the regular away supporter's have a chance of a ticket.

As they do not go on general sale until tomorrow I consider that 500 tickets isn't that bad.

Have got my tickets for Rotherham- it is going to be an extremely long couple of days

Just a heads up- i rang the ticket office as i dont live in Plymouth & the postal service where i live is not reliable & i was told you can collect your tickets from the Box Office at Rotherham- so that is what i will be doing

When you get to checkout & paying you will just need to state collection method as collect from box office- the ticket office did mention when i get to the Box Office at Rotherham i will just need to show the confirmation email confirming purchase of tickets

Tried to use the online system which crashed so rang Argyle to buy which was a lot easier. I'm relying on mine arriving in the post by Saturday. I'll be travelling down from Knaresborough and meeting a friend coming over from Manchester. Very much looking forward to it as it's my first Argyle match since we played at Bradford in February 2020.

There is the flexi membership away fans can buy, gives you 6 home games (which you can use in 1 or 2 games if you want to go with friends/family) and priority in the cup. Perfect for Argyle fans who live around the country.

Is it just me who thinks even 800-900 tickets sold is disappointing? I can only assume we have a large proportion of older fans who attend away games who are perhaps reluctant in the current climate. I will be going myself.

You do know where Rotherham is? Several hundred miles away and not a particularly glamorous place to go to.

Yeah I agree, I'm making the effort because the gaffer and the club are forever telling new players about the massive support.......plus no away game for best part of 2 years I'm not missing this, I wont be going many but deffo this one. I really thought this would sell out.

We havn’t seen a competitive game of football away from home for nigh on 18 months.

Regardless of distance of this poxy virus I for one cannot wait for Saturday

You've made it clear that your not going several posts ago......the excuses your giving are you literally trying to make yourself feel justified for not going....stop putting a downer on the fixture and either go or support those going.....like me 😁
I don't need to justify anything mate. Probably supporting the team through thick and thin a lot longer than you. My point very simply was why we may not sell as many tickets as some suggested. A Summer day out in Rotherham may not be top of the agenda for many. I don't support those going. I support the team when I can.

Since when does glamour play a part in deciding what Argyle games to go to? The fans travelling up from Plymouth on the coaches usually get there a couple of hours before kick off, most dive into the nearest pub and that's it. Others from around the UK rarely get a chance to walk around and take a look at the sights. Or do you mean touristy towns/cities? Well I don't ever remember Argyle taking more than say 700 to York and that's a beautiful place.
Whenever we play at crap places like Portsmouth or Luton we always seem to take a great following.

Penn, near High Wycombe
Looks like we’ll have (at least) double the number we had for the last match (456 on 16/12/17) at the NY stadium, when the Bridge Inn near the station could barely cope, with just 1 or 2 “overwhelmed” bar staff.
Let’s hope they’re “wised up” this time to put on more staff if they’re still serving away fans ; otherwise, with good beer , it was a convenient & pleasant spot for a drink before the short walk to the ground.

I for one couldnt care less that i am travelling to Rotherham- i am not going for a sight seeing tour i am going to watch my team
The away day experience leaving the house, getting on the train & seeing other members of the green army dotted about the train carriage- going to a new stadium, sampling their food & drink before you get to your seat hoping you have got a good view & then kick off- the 90 mins go in a blink of an eye & then you leave to go back to where you came from

Thats why i go & i would not miss it for the world- the emotions of the last 18 months will come out on Saturday at 3pm
