Blaze finance director Andy Buxton said:
you want to book tickets for Sunday's game v Peterborough, please
call the Skydome on 024 7663 0693 rather than any other number you
are reserving tickets for collection and payment on the night of
the game so it may be worth a quick call even if you don't pay
you use this method, you'll have to queue on the night to pay for
your ticket but you will know you have the seat you want.
you ring up and pay over the phone, you won't have to queue at the
box office and can collect from the Skydome collection people on
the night of the game.
phone lines are quite busy so please be patient if you don't get
through straight away.
already had more tickets sold or reserved than for any other game
this season and they've only been on sale for about 48 hours so
demand is high.
can say that we HAVE NOT reserved any blocks for schools for this
game so there are plenty of seats available.
own view is that I think we'll get everyone in, but not
necessarily everyone in a seat so if you want to be sure of
sitting down, I would suggest you phone and reserve."
