 How many stands?

The question often comes up when Diddy teams play the Old Firm ,how many stands do you give them? Do you move season ticket holders to accommodate Old Firm fans and maximize revenue or stick to honouring your own fans and have empty seats.
St Mirren gave Cellic one less stand today therefore Cellic got 1600 less tickets ,yet we`re only 200 of a crowd down on last seasons game, so had 1300 extra home fans .
Did this help St Mirren get a result yesterday? ,as they hadn`t effectively given away home advantage.
I think Alan Burrows Motherwell GM had said around 20% of home season ticket holders don`t come to Old Firm games .

Do you believe 1300 more home fans or Celtic fans bought tickets in the home end? Interesting to see with 3 minutes to go how many home fans were heading out early.

Key thing with the St mirren policy was - it was a fans decision.

Good on them. I think it massively helped the get a result, and more clubs should be brave enough to do the same. Why give them every advantage.

On the other hand, I mind when we beat Rangers 3 - 2 in the Scottish Cup under Kenny when they had the entire North West, East and probably most of the Main Stand.

Episode 2 of East End Tales is out with Jim Leishman!

Ah but EET, that was because the manager at the time was a wizard…
