Mansfield Town season ticket holders must collect matchday ticket ahead of Stags season opener against Newport

PROBLEMS with Mansfield Town’s new ticketing system means that season ticket holders must collect a matchday ticket ahead of Saturday’s new season curtain-raiser against Newport.

Tickets must be collected from Thursday upto 2pm on Saturday, the opening day of the BSBP season. The club’s office will be open from 9am-8pm on Thursday and Friday.

A statement on the club’s official website said: “Due to unforeseen technical issues, we are unable to process our new season ticket cards at this time.”

New joint operations director Paul Broughton added: “We apologise for any inconvenience and are working hard to ensure season ticket cards are available to collect as soon as possible.

“A brand new ticketing system is being installed which will enable our ticketing operation to be much more effective, heading forward.”
