  • I heard some intersting news yesterday.

    I went down to Kings park to see if i could move my season tickets.

    The guy behind the counter informed me that i could but then would not qualify to buy my Lions tickets for next years test. :sad:

    Apparantly they have “locked” sales on 1 may of this year and all existing season ticket holders will be entitled to buy there tickets for the Lions test but anyone who buys tickets now or new ones next season will not be entitled to their tickets becasue they will all be sold through computicket.

    The “available” seat numbers have already been “issued” to computicket for them to prepare the sales packages.
