Always a good one this, we've never had the money to risk it until now.
Absolutely agree. If it's all about growing the club then doing everything we can to extend the fanbase is vital.
Won’t happen because an offer is already in place for people that bought season tickets in the early bird period this season . Think you got the season ticket at the same price next season . I’m sure people wouldn’t mind paying £150 instead but don’t see this happening
I think that our season tickets compared to the rest of the league are cheap , therefore instead of discounting season tickets , use the surplus money on the team, however , I would like to see the matchday prices reduced to a max of £20 to try & encourage the casual fan to come through the gate
I don't know if it's comparable, but if you have a look at the ticket prices on the OGC Nice website, there are tickets that are a lot more affordable.
There are also far more price choices, because each stand is broken down into smaller price brackets.
I've never thought it fair that someone sat in the bottom corner of the ESL should pay the same as someone sat to the rear of the ESL on the half way line. The same applies to other areas of the ground that are equally crap, but pay the same price as better areas of the same stand.
What will get more through the gates £150 ST or £20 matchday. The £15 forest game last year only attracted 12,015 home fans and the £10 Brentford game 13,271.
£150 season tickets would but the forest game was a 5.30 ko and on sky. I wouldn't mind 150 quid season tickets but like already said ours are some of the cheapest in the league. Wednesday fans are paying double to what we charge.
I don't think the issue is if it's the cheapest they are every season in this league and have been since the year dot. They are wanting to increase the attendances substantially and probably will want to know the quickest way of doing it.
We need to have EVERY seat available in the ground again first before we can look at things like this. This must be a priority!! This 4500 lark in the north stand is stupid. The west just isn't appealing to a lot of people, family's etc. We could do with a new west stand, whilst trying to keep it looking like the old one, the Patrick Cryne West stand!!
On one of the cheap deals last season the West Stand Upper had several young families attending and they were loving it !
I'd buy one for 150 quid, and I live 1400 miles away. That's only five games at pay on the gate prices. Last season I went to four. And it would be worth it to guarantee getting tickets for potential big matches.
Don't remember that..... it was in place for those who bought a s/t two years ago so they could renew at the same price this season, but don't recall the same applying for next.
Could be wrong though. Please confirm.
I thought that was year before for this season. Not seen anything that made a promise on prices for next season?
Looks terrible why would we copy it. Needs an identical one to the East Stand.
£150.00 adult season tickets would be a fantastic start but unfortunately this would still price out many potebtial fans unless the club also introduced or extended affordable payment options as I fear that a family of four may still find it rather difficulty to find the cash for two adult and two child season tickets, even at such an incredibly reduced rate.
My thoughts would be to look at safe standing in the west stand. Could then offer tickets that were afordable to people on low incomes.
£150 is about £6.50 a match. Not sure how much cheaper the Club could make it, without losing money
I haven’t suggested making it cheaper. I’ve suggested introducing or extending affordable payment options so that a family don’t have to shell of what is still a significant amount in one go.
