Got a Tweet saying Dundee are extending the deal with ProVenue that promises (among other things)

'ProVenue® offers intuitive ticketing and marketing processes that will not only support improved ease of use for fans, but also provide extensive data capture to help the club analyse trends to enhance fan engagement.'

Enhance fan engagement? When has FPS ever been interested in fan engagement?

“At Dundee, we are dedicated to enhancing the experience for our fans and ticketing is central to this,” says Neil.

Pi55 take surely?

It's an odd article, seems to imply we'll all be able to use smartphones etc to buy match tickets & 'interact' with stadium access systems, eg with a scanner reading the ticket on our phones & letting us through the gate.

This is what I'm anticipating would be installed in the Noo Campy, but I can't see the Club spending money on modern upgrades to the old turnstiles at Dens.

....but will it end the need to 'queue twice'? ;)  

[for the record, in case someone takes this literally.... :stop:...I'm joking]

Reading the article "Neil" is Neil Cosgrove. Can't say I've had any problems when dealing with the ticket office, sometimes a pain ringing in but that's hardly their fault.

Perhaps they are planning to bring back PATG in all the Stands with robots to take in the money in exchange for a ticket.

Neil's fine. It's the whole irony of a club that simply doesn't engage with fans coming out with nonsense like that. Shoulda taken Neil's name off it

We aren’t extending a contract with ProVenue  but rather tickets.com. ProVenue® Seems to be a new system/application that the club will incorporate and start to use as of next season. 

Have to say this is a big step forward for the club, and hopefully will help make ticket purchase much easier and far more up to date. I would imagine, (if it happens) that electronic ticket entry would be part of the new stadium plans

How I saw it too, I'm guessing we're on the gashest arrangement/system and we're upgrading to a better one with the same company. Like you I'm hoping for a swipe system at the Campy Nou although like nearly every new infrastructure in the UK it might take longer than we'd hoped.

Read the article and came across to me as quite a lot of waffle. Not really saying much other than hinting that it is better.

Anyone know what this will actually mean practically for fans buying tickets? The big thing the club has to do to modernise is introduce e-tickets where you can buy them on your phone and scan at the turnstile.

As far as I am aware there are not normally PATG for Away supporters in the Bob Shankly Stand which in my opinion is crazy. 

You would think that FPS would want as many people as possible attend home games at Dens not try to drive them away by only having PATG in the Main Stand. 

The only times this season that that sections A, B and C of the Main Stand are required for Away supporters is when Rangers and Celtic are playing at Dens and these games are ‘all ticket’

In my opinion there is no point in John Nelms ‘bleating’ at the end of last season wanting 1,000 extra season ticket holders for the 2018 -19 season when the directors are putting obstacles in the way by refusing to have PATG turnstiles at all four stands including the South Enclosure.

Will someone in authority at Dundee Football Club please explain either through the press or on this forum why the club will not have PATG in all four stands at Dens Park including the South Enclosure. What is the problem.
