I just got mine from ticketmaster, bit on the steep side but great seats. For the occasion they could have charged me double and I'd have come away smiling. I'd rather have given my money straight to Tigers but no ST and no chance was I waiting till Thursday.

In regards to people asking why we are playing at the City Ground and not the King Power, I said we couldn't play in same city and the club can't pick. It looks like I was wrong. People on Tigers Facebook page have asked why it is at the City Ground and Tigers responded that it's because Leicester City are at home so their ground cannot be used and the City Ground was next on the list.

I stand corrected. If only Leicester City weren't at home.

for Ze Stade Fan where on ever did you get that figure of 32,000 from.
the city ground capacity is around 48,000 now that it is all seating and that would mean a ticket allocation of more than 70%. No given our season ticket base and our average home crowd attendance plus the fact that I know that some Nottingham rugby supporters will be following the Tigers as both Dom Barrow and Ed Slater once played for them. I would be delighted to see about 25,000 tiger fans in the crowd, any more than that would be unbelievable. So I expect the total attendance for the match to be around 36 or 37,000.

Are you sure of your figures Noddy, I'm sure it's quoted their capacity is 30,500, thus our 10,000 allocation is one third of the tickets

What are restricted seats?

Is there where they leave empty seats to section home and away football supporters?

If so, surely there's no need for that for a rugby match

its seats with restricted views of the pitch, mainly in lower bridgford near to lower clough,and lower bridgford near to main stand.

the official capacity that Forest give is the amount of seats that are accounted for, either by ticket sold,not available due to segregation or no view, hence the actual amount of tickets sold to fans is always lower than capacity. same as some football clubs do not sell front row seats for europe due to higher advertising boards.

that's actually a UEFA rule about a minimum gaps from the pitch to first row of spectators.

Hmmm that's interesting considering Tigers effectively have home advantage. Won't book my trip to Lyon just yet.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.
