MOBILE TICKETING:
The Club will be introducing mobile ticketing for all matches at the Etihad Stadium for the 2021/22 season. This follows its successful trial at the Etihad Stadium at the Club’s final match of the 2020/21 season.
Successful trial my arse.

No consultation whatsoever either, but they consult on Pie in the Sky projects and ask if we are "excited" about them like we are 8 years old.

It’s a ticket to get into the ground, why should anyone be consulted? Did airlines consult their passengers before introducing it? Pretty sure the same people were moaning when we moved away from the paper books, move with the times ffs.

Most people fly once a year bit different to potentially 25 plus visits, to the Etihad so printing something off once if you don't have a, printer isn't too much of a hassle, doing it weekly is.
Also with most airlines you can still get someone to check you in online or do it yourself at the airport which you can't do with city. Therefore you do not need a nfc enabled smartphone to fly they are other options. It seems with City although not confirmed the only other option is weekly trips to use the library printer. That is till the councils shut them all anyway due to budget cuts!

Or just collect from the ticket office on the day?

do you presume everyone has a smart phone?

no but 95% of adults will have. Whether it’s this season, next or the one after, it’s definitely going to happen so may as well get it over and done with now.

I actually think it will make things much easier with Covid passports when the time comes for that.

They have no idea how many fans have the correct technology, that is what they should have consulted on, the unintended or even quite foreseeable consequences of introducing such a policy. The club needs to provide the ticket not assume everyone has a nonce phone.

I never heard one person complain about the move away from paper books, this is a step backwards and makes things more difficult.

We didn't need a third party payment system to go to Porto on any of the airlines.
