We have tonight been made aware of a social media post which states that Harrogate Town Supporters who have already purchased a ticket for the play off tie against AFC Fylde will need to purchase a fresh ticket at an increased price.We understand from that social media post that Fylde supporters will continue to enjoy reduced prices whilst Harrogate Town Supporters will be required to pay higher prices, this is contrary to National League rules.
National League rules are clear that clubs cannot reduce prices for play off matches and this was brought to AFC Fylde's attention as early as Sunday 28 April 2019.
Today we have been in constant dialogue with AFC Fylde and The National League to try and resolve matters.
We noted that away tickets were advertised as “Sold Out” this afternoon and we brought this to the attention of AFC Fylde and The National League.
AFC Fylde confirmed they would rectify their press release on their website and all social media platforms.
Please be absolutely assured that Harrogate Town AFC have complied with and abide by National League rules.
Tomorrow we want our travelling support to make BIG noise, BIG support and get behind Town all the way!
