I found this last night on the jag website.  Tells about the event and off to the side has a pre-sale registration for tickets.  I have not register as of yet as I am trying to figure out if any of the family is going to come with me.

Personally, I feel the whole event has been diluted by the joining of the match to the Underwood concert and the unveiling.

When I go to a footie match, I should expect to sit next to football fans, though I can accept sitting by sports fans might be an acceptable second, but to face the possibility of sitting next to people who are just there to see the concert, have no interest in football, and unlikely have even heard of Fulham, smacks of pure commercialism on the part of Khan, and provides ammunition that Fulham football club and its fans, is less of a concern to him than just making a quick buck.

The simple facts (as I see them) are these:
All current (and any future up to May 30) Jag ST holders get free entry. I have little doubt if they don't want to go there will be subs for them. This automatically reduces the available ticket allocations to Fulham and United fans. The addition of Underwood simply undermines the true football fans' ticket availability.

Sorry, for me, Khan has made a dreadful mistake, especially as I have seen very little if anything on the Fulham site itself concerning this event, and THAT is the place Fulham fans all over the world would first look for such information.

We have signed up for the early tickets, solely because I want to see my life-long club play, but the anticipation and excitement has been dulled by this spectacle, and my view of Khan, which has been quite neutral up til now, has diminished a little, I'm sorry to say.

Is it possible for the event to have a FOF block so we can all sit together?

Thats the issue I guess, as all ST holders will have their own seats reserved, and the rest of the ticket sales could well be first-come-first-served basis, so you could be sitting next to a bunch of girlies all waiting for Carrie to appear and wondering what this bunch of 22 guys are doing chasing a pigs bladder around the pitch for.

I agree with you Logicalman, however most wont be interested in attending the match so i would imagine they would arrive later.

Fulham in Florida has a contact inside and said he would talk to the powers that be about a Fulham block

Ok bad news so I hope Fulham of Florida has a really good contact. 
Just got off the phone with JAG’s ticket office.  The event is currently only be offered to season ticket holders.  They are not sure yet if they are going to open it up to the public for general admission.  I think two things need to be done. 

1.    Call Jags’s ticket office 904.633.4673 and ask for Milena.  She has a lovely voice and is the one who gave me the low down. 
2.   We should all probably email the club and ask what gives? 

Milena said that the jags would probably make an announcement in the next week or two about public tickets. 

What a bunch of rubbish!

Perhaps that's why they haven't mentioned it on the Fulham site, but did on the Jags site 2 weeks ago?

Below is the official reply from the club about tickets for the “Event”.  Sadly it sounds like CU’s stage could be taking up an unknown amount of seats.  Her stage will determine if any or how many seats might be available to the public. 
Email for FFC:
Thanks for your email.

We are yet to receive ticket information for this game as the seating plan/stage set up is yet to be confirmed. As soon as I have more information, I'll drop you an email.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kindest regards,
Nicola

Has anyone heard anything about tickets yet?  I just emailed the Jags again to see if there is an update.

I also emailed the club a couple of weeks back, and the reply I received was not encouraging, as we are not considered as primary or even secondary persons attending and simply referred to as guests at the event.

The club initially put this out as a football game on the Fulham site, but since then it has gone eerily quiet, and any information is being dissipated via other channels (predominantly Jags 365 site) is referring to this event as an unveiling of the new Jumbotron and a concert by one C. Underwood. Never thought we would ever play third fiddle to a blood pop star!

Ok I just got a call from the jag’s ticket office.  They don’t really seem to have their S*** together.  The guy who called was wanting to know if I would be interested in a small suite for $3500 that holds 16 people.  Told him I was more interested in general tickets for a small group.  He thinks (“thinks” is the key word here) that additional tickets will be offered first to season ticket holders starting on Wednesday.  He believes that tickets will be available to general public starting next week and told me to call back on Friday. 

Q – If we were able to get a set of group tickets how many here would be interested?  If you are interested how many tickets would you want?

I would like two as it is myself and my wife. however, the longer they drag their feet on this reduces my ability to go, as i have to run it up my chain of command for approval, weeks in advance.

Hotel & Tickets now sorted, and emails sent.

Anyone got any ideas about this block of FFC tickets that's been mentioned and whether we can find out who might be taking them up, just sos we can meet and coordinate a drinking/eating session on Match day in jax?

Anyone on FoF attending, and not already on our email list, drop me your email address and I'll add you to it.

We have booked hotels just a mile from the ground, prices are between 85 and 140 bucks a night (+ tax)
