The tickets are on sale very early, I don't think they will come close to selling out until the Welsh Open when after the first couple of rounds it will become more clear who will be playing in which sessions.
I agree with Witz as regards to the tickets, £3 a sessions doesn't sound much but over the course it soon adds up. Maybe a multi session booking discountt or something?
Spoke to my mate with the season ticket and put in my request for Mon - Weds first week. He may have more for me or it may be other days, not sure yet. The hike in price has not gone down well with season ticket holders and coupled with the non-attendance for qualifiers................there is some unhappy fans of the game out there.
What you have to remember is not everyone lives local to Sheffield. So in effect it is like a proper holiday for those travelling. Real costs involved, petrol, hotel, food, beer, gambling, hookers (for witz
So @ £50 a day on tickets................I think it is somewhat expensive and not really considerate, but what can you do.
