I fully appreciate it is much easier for many to get tickets in advance for a variety of reasons, but it's also easier for some to just POTG, again for a variety of reasons. In my view they should make it clear that both routes are available from Day 1 so people can choose. Anyways, wish I was going, but will have to settle with the commentary UTC
    It's about event and venue management. The 'limited number' of tickets available on the day will be those remaining in blocks that have already been opened up. If they made it more generally pay on the gate they'd have to charge more as they'd be paying stewards and catering staff they may not need (and that's before you consider the ballache involved with selling tens of thousands of tickets on the day of an event).

    Fair Do's Chimes, I do have a habit of looking at things a bit simplistically and no doubt there are valid reasons these days, didn't seem to matter in the old days !!
