After 29 years in the army i have finally got a posting that is close enough (Aldershot) for me to get a season ticket.
I am looking to apply for two seats in the Bobby Moore Lower but the difficulty is knowing roughly where to apply for so that my wife who is 'vertically challenged' will be able to see. I appreciate that there is a large area where everyone stands for the whole match but any advice on the best row/seat area where most of the time people remain sat down would be appreciated.
If your wife can't see if people stand I wouldn't advise BML unless you can get from row. Standing varies but for some games the whole end stands and others everyone stands if game gets exciting - which are the bits she wouldn't want to miss.
The back has few rows tends to stand so I would avoid anything from rows W - DD. I would also avoid A - F unless you like looking up at the pitch.
I'd say go for the Upper tier better view and no problems for your missus as the rake of the seats is higher, although dearer or as already suggested
I'm in the BML and I can't remember the last time we sat down at a game other than before kick off or at half time.
I'm in row AA, which is about three quarters of the way back.
One option would be though is if you could get a seat in the first row above the exit gaps. Depending on where this is she might be able to see most of the pitch, but might lose some of it such as the corner areas. The club used to arrange days where you could go and see the view, so you could maybe stand in places where the view might be blocked to see what it is like.
As others have said, you're probably safer picking elsewhere such as BMU.
Welcome Squaddie or should I say hero.
What prices/band are you looking for?
What experience? Noisy, Family orientated, Old Skool, Mental?
You may have already found these links:
If you follow the ordering process online (second link) but do not actuallly make a purchase/checkout, the stadium plan seating actually gives you an image of the typical view on the seat you have selected.
I haven't tried this recently but would be surprised if this function was not still available.
Let us know how you get on.
Hope you and the missus get a good seat and enjoy the new season. More importantly, hope you get neighbours that enjoy a good banter and help to make it a good day out.
Careful....she shot her hubby in the head with a nail gun the other week..
She denies it, but we KNOW!
Best advice is
Don't take your wife!!! leave her at home to get the curry ordered and wash your pants ready for your Sunday afternoon beer up with your mates....
Seriously though i have the same issue with my old man, and although its a hike for him we have ended up in the East Upper not bad (relatively) atmosphere but most stay seated for most of the game.
