Arsenal ticketing - well done Orient!
LOFT has, in the past, had to criticise the club for its handling of ticketing arrangements for games with greater interest than usual (and FA Cup games in particular).
It is therefore only fair that we commend the club for its handling of the ticketing arrangements in the aftermath of the 5th Round draw that handed Leyton Orient a plum home tie against Arsenal.
Whilst no system is ever perfect, the club has clearly done its best to both maximise the number of seats for home supporters, while also enabling a priority scheme that gives both season ticket holders and regular attendees who for whatever reason are unable to buy a season ticket a fair priority opportunity.
The club's communications via its website have also been timely and informative, and we all hope that the administration of the match before and during the game itself continues to be a credit to the club.
