5,000 tickets shifted with less than 2 weeks until the game is pretty shocking though, however you look at it. It’s £15 and £5. 

 

I’ve no issue with anyone choosing to watch this one on the telly, just not if they come begging for someone’s reference number the next time we go to Easter Road. 

Going for our 5 tickets on Thursday,  what's the rush? Anything over 10k is reasonable  a similar crowd to the well quarter final 14.5K would be great.

Disappointing maybe, but I wouldn’t say shocking. 

 

What would be shocking is if that was all we sold, but we’ll likely sell at least double that.

It is very low but plenty time to get numbers up. 

How many LPs are we getting for this ?

Not at all. Just thought it was a strange post given there is plenty of evidence for what the guy said, and you posted nothing else but an unnecessarily aggressive 2 word response to a well reasoned post. Think you are being a tad kind on yourself with ' i suggest otherwise'. 

Would be interested where i suggested I was upset too? But you bash on. Game of opinions after all my friend.

On my latest count just over 5000 now sold. Will obviously be higher than that when hospitality sales are added in. 

Around 5400 now sold plus hospitality.

How things have changed since the good (bad) old days in the 70's - 8,000 for league games but an attractive SC tie like this one would have drawn 15,000.

Probably not, but then we'll still have a whole week, plus all of next Saturday and a fair bit of the Sunday left to sell tickets!

This.  Don’t understand it tbh. We’re not the end only club but in the older days the cup was always the biggest draw outside the derby. Remember the 4-0 win v motherwellnin 89 for instance (the one with ‘that’ colquoun goal). It was hoying it doon and we had loads more than we did the following week in the league v them.

the cups always was the huge draw.

think tickets will start shifting next week. We are all getting ours on Monday , that’s 6

Bought 6 with cash at ticket office the day. Couple of days later than planned but managed up today. Plenty comments on here saying is only £15 per adult and £5 per child but there will be a few folk who don't have £20 to spare a few weeks after Christmas. Through in travel costs and likelihood off food/refreshments on the day and that £20 is easily doubled. Not saying that's the sole reason for slow sales but can see it being a factor, along with live on the BBC and possibly the thought of sitting in very likely cold weather! Still think we will hit 10 or 11k

Is was closed initially for the ICT League Cup game but after the Main and Gorgie filled up, they opened it section by section starting from A. Was only a few days before the game so depends on how quickly the two stands sell out.

I'd like to think so Clerry. Think being live on terrestrial tv might mean couple of thousand tickets less than usual sold. If we can get 14.5k for Motherwell in league cup hopefully we can get as close to that as possible for livvy (admittedly well match wasn't on tv)

Sometimes you think maybe the club have to consider  dangling the odd carrot to maybe convince folk to go along. I'm not saying we will, hope we do obviously, but if we were to get to the semi-final and the final people would want tickets. And if the club were to say they would give some sort of additional priority to those who had purchased tickets for and attended the games in the earlier rounds it just might encourage some people to consider going. I'm not even going to try and guess what the crowd will be, However, I'm guessing from what I've read on here we've sold maybe around 6,000 tickets so far. Can we sell say the same amount again in the 1.5 weeks remaining until the game is played, who knows.

Hearts v Aberdeen in the 2016 cup in January, on BBC1, had 13595 with a full Roseburn of Aberdeen fans. 

 

Throw own in the worse time slot, and the fact Livi are awful to watch this season- and would undoubtedly be happy with 0-0 in this game- and I can’t see this drawing ten thousand.

Makes more financial sense to use the Roseburn Stand for home fans before opening the Wheatfield.

In my opinion they need to get rid of the replays in the Scottish cup, think people are getting sick of buying tickets for a game that possibly won’t even be settled on the day, 15 quid seems reasonable but feel like they should have just made it a tenner and got the crowd in

Agreed something needs to be done to encourage people to attend early round cup games.

Those of us of a "certain age" remember when cup crowds could be almost double what we'd get for the same opposition in a league game.

I'm not sure why cup ties have now become less attractive as for most clubs it's the only real chance of a bit of success.

Might be something to do with the increase in season tickets. The vast majority now have one and maybe can’t be bothered paying again for cup ties.

The pricing should be enough to encourage people , 15 quid very reasonable ! A think more likely a Sunday game live in tv making some people's minds up to stay at home

If this was a league game at the same time the crowd would be in excess of 16k and I mean actual crowd, not just tickets sold.
