Uh-oh, looks like there could be trouble brewing.

As I’m sure every Forest fan is aware, although for those of you living under a rock, or perhaps didn’t have internet access over the past couple of days I’ll remind you, the Reds have drawn Derby County in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

As you may expect when a game against your biggest rival pops up, tickets are going to be like hotcakes, and the club knows that.

They’ve come up with a bit of a unique way of ensuring what they think is a fair way of divvying up tickets for the cup game, and that’s

On the club website, they have said that:

“Supporters who buy tickets for Saturday’s game against Birmingham City will be given priority to purchase tickets for the Carabao Cup clash with Derby County after season card holders but before general sale.”

Whilst the club sees this as an incentive to get people through the gates for more games, some fans don’t think that this is the right way to go about it. They think that fans who went to the first-round game against Fleetwood Town should get priority instead.

  • The loyal 7k who went to see Fleetwood should definitely be first choice, just as pensioners and older supporters should have cheaper season tickets for being life long supporters – it’s a pretty poor discount at the moment and no I’m not a pensioner or even close, it’s just the right thing to do

  • I am sure forest will correct this anomaly before tickets go on sale, to ensure the people who attended the Fleetwood game have priority after season card holders!

  • And £20?
    Was it not £10, last season for season card holders?
    Excuse my ignorance if information had already been updated.
