technical glitch

Eason apologises after tickets mix-up for Alex Ferguson event

The former Manchester United manager will be in Dublin to promote his autobiography in November.


EASON HAS BEEN forced to apologise after its website left Manchester United fans frustrated this morning.

To promote his upcoming autobiography, legendary former manager Alex Ferguson will attend an event at Dublin’s Covention Centre on 8 November.

Tickets for the evening, which will be hosted by Eamonn Holmes, went on sale on Eason’s website for €40 each at 10am this morning. However, many expressed their disappointment after having difficulties getting onto the site while others rued the fact that it was only allowing them to buy one ticket.

Here is a sample of the tweets:


The tickets sold out after just 17 minutes and this afternoon, Eason apologised for the technical issue.

“We sincerely apologise to our customers for the technical glitch that occurred on our website this morning with regard to tickets for the Alex Ferguson event on 8th November in the Convention Centre, Dublin.

We fully realise that some of our customers who wanted to purchase two tickets for the event were unable to do so and could only purchase one ticket. Demand for the tickets was extremely high and the event is sold out.

“We will be contacting all those who purchased a ticket to the event in due course.”

Eason were unavailable for comment this evening.
