34.2 Facilities for visiting supporters
34.2.1 Each Club must make provision for at least 2,000 visiting supporters at every home match or such number as represents 10% of the Club's certified capacity, if less than 2,000. The Executive may, on the prior written application of a Club, suspend this Regulation or reduce the figure either for a particular League Match or for a period of time. Each Club shall, subject to any dispensations granted by the Board, make provision for at least 200 of the visiting supporters to be accommodated under cover. Any Club which fails to meet the requirement of 200 visiting supporters being accommodated under cover and which does not have a dispensation granted by the Board shall have such amounts as the Board shall determine (in its absolute discretion) withheld from that Club's central distributions from the Pool Account until such time as the Club can meet the requirement.
Fo*est capacity is 30,602 so their 10% allocation would be 3,060 under normal circumstances but the rules do make provision for their nonsensical allocation of 2,002. At a quick calculation at £30.00 per ticket they are losing income from Derby a total of £31,740 and for other teams that would buy up the full allocation in this division, say 5, that's a grand total of £158,700 this season alone. Reddog ticket prices to soar next season then?
