I was up in Edinburgh today with my son for an open day at the Uni. Left there at 2:30 and made it to the East Stand turnstiles just after the first half ended.
No turnstiles were open so I asked the steward at the gates how I could get in, only to be told, “the last turnstile shut a wee while ago, so as there’s no-one to scan your season ticket you canny get in.”
Despite my protestations, he wasn’t for changing his mind so I ended up going to the front of the Frank Beattie and managing to blag my way in by speaking to a club official.
Anyone else had the same issue? Is this the fault of the stewards/KFC or both?
I bust a guy to get back for the second half (call me mad) and was point blank refused entry. Some may not have gone and tried other avenues, meaning a decent supporter making an effort to support the team (having paid for an ST) would’ve just headed for the hills!!
I remember the days when you could go in for free after halftime. Now it seems you can’t get in at all - even with a season ticket!
