Buying tickets online - Increasingly difficult?!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found that MFC have made it increasingly difficult to buy tickets online?  You used to just click the seats you wanted, pop in your email address, pay your money and print off the ticets.  Then they decided that you had to have an MFC Digital account, which needed to be sync'ed with a previous ticket purchase, so after several attempts I managed to do that and all was well again.

Now they've decided that you can only buy multiple tickets if you've got the other people in your online account, as My Friends & Family?!  So I have to setup an online account for every person I'm buying a ticket for, including their date of birth, address and email address (surely a breach of GDPR?!) and then assign each ticket to that person when I'm in the Basket?

To top it all off, after I've gone through all that nonsense, created 5 new accounts for the 5 people coming to the game, it now won't let me complete the purchase as those 5 people don't have a previous ticket purchase in their account history?! 

This is ridiculous, are we deliberately trying to stop people from attending games?  A bunch of us usually go to the cup games when we can, as we work a variety of weekend/evening shifts between us, so regular weekend games aren't possible.  Last season we sat through the excitement of Newport and Burton, so we were looking forward to seeing a Premier League side for a change. 

(Just a note, I'm local so I can drive to the ticket office, but I've been ill for a couple of weeks and was hoping to get the tickets sorted out without needing to leave the house.  This is a complaint about the online procedure and whether other people have found the same issues?)

    • Boro flashback - This day the 29th January 1977 Boro 4 Hereford United 0 Since the 18th January 1972, when the mighty Boro beat Man City in the 3rd round of the FAC, the visit of Hereford United to Ayresome Park was to be my 11th home & away Boro FAC match Hereford were welcomed to Ayresome Park, without the famous Ricky George & George Radford, both who will forever go down in FAC history for their 2 goals which brought hundreds of onrushing parkers on to the pitch when, as a non league team, knocking 1st division Newcastle out of the FAC  Now Hereford, who in 5 seasons since  joining the football league are in the 2nd division, came to the Boro hoping for the fairytale to continue But...............                                              It was never going to be the case, I can still remember from my position dead centre of the holgate as Graeme Souness measured up to smash a thirty yarder in to the east end goal, I started to shout, don't shoot from there, gooooooaaaaaaalllllll And from then it was Davey Armstrong with a couple, including a penalty & Alan Willey with his1st FAC goal, the Boro cruised to the 5th round  Hereford finished bottom of the 2nd division that season  Big Jacks inaugural FAC Boro home match  Pat Cuff John Craggs  Terry Cooper  Graeme Souness  Stuey Boam  Willie Maddren  Tony McAndrew  David Mills  Peter Brine  Alf Wood  Davey Armstrong  Sub - Alan Willey replacing Alf Wood 
    • Well done for minding your p's and q's there. Something that was called while the lady of the public house walked through. Meant mind your pints and quarts. 
    • the origins of phrases sometimes have very strange explanations.......I always assumed that "taking the mick" was something to do with Ireland, but apparently Cockney rhyming slang...the one that always makes me smile is "he couldn't hit a cow's **** with a banjo"... why would anyone want to?   
    • 3 days until deadline day and this is what is being posted 😂
    • Yep. Our cushion was 10pts after the last game week. We are now a point worse as far as that is concerned after this game week. Luton winning not a huge issue but Wigan winning was a blow. Had they not scored 93rd min winner our cushion would have been 11pts
