I ATTEMPTED to buy tickets for the Western Force game online. I went to Google and to "Southern Kings tickets Super Rugby".
Alas you get "There are no planned matches for the Southern Kings at this point".
So off I went to get my 10 tickets at Computicket, Checkers, Sixth Avenue Walmer. Sadly you are unable to see what seats are available – all you get is "best available row 25 seats 1-10".
"Could we please have five seats in row 25 and five in either row 24 or row 26?" – sorry you have no option other than "best available". So if I wanted 20 tickets what I could get were 20 in a row like birds on a telephone wire.
In February 2013 you would imagine the Southern Kings website would be updated and that we could choose seats that were available as we do when we buy tickets for movies via Computicket. It certainly doesn't encourage fans to go as a group.
Come on Kings, get with it!
