If we go up it will be interesting to see how many we sell,I know of at least 6 people who are going to get one just to guarantee to see the likes of Man U,Arsenal,Liverpool etc.

Anyone remember how many we sold the last time we graced the prem?

Depending on the price, I'm looking to get one next year. I've been to quite a few games this season, sitting next to my brother and Grandad as they are ST holders. We will sell more than this year obviously.

Last time we were in the prem we had about 21,000 STH which would be an increase of about 5k from what we have now. I expect us to sell more than that though.

I thought it was nearer 25000 last time?

It was ridiculously high what ever it was though!

Hope they are cheaper this season, and should be with the revenue from promotion.

I very much doubt they would be cheaper then this years prices.

I can imagine them being at least £100+ more then this years prices.

4 less home games must mean they're going to be either cheaper or at least the same price.

But you have to factor in there will be more 'popular' games, therefore increasing demand and interest.

4 less games means if they stay the same price it will be a price increase, and at 25 quid a ticket means about £100.

POPULAR

Wonder if all of those people who "won't go again whilst Pearson is in charge" have quietly crept back in whilst we weren't looking.

 

Nice to know their season tickets will be much more expensive next year than those who stuck with it and enjoyed this season.

I'm sort of dreading the prices as well as wanting to know them.

 

I can understand them going up, I hate to say it but they'd be idiots not to - but I'll be livid if it's a silly rise. The TV revenue is going up yet again, matchday ticket revenue becomes a smaller percentage of our turnover.

 

I wish we'd take a leaf out of Derby's book. Prices frozen for next season if they don't go up, and HALVED if they do. They've sold 16k already.

I couldn't get a season ticket if I wanted one, as I work Saturdays. I hope I can get down for the odd game though.

Yes it is, a friend at work who's a derby fan renewed his season ticket he could potentially be watching premiership football for £220.

Increased demand means prices should go up. However, it will be a much much smaller proportion of revenue next season. Hope they reward those who currently have STs.

but in reality he's paid £440 (i assume?) for a championship season ticket and thinks he's got a cracking deal. clever derby!

How much would a season ticket cost in J3 at our ground, as that's similar to where he sits at Derby.

i would guess a bit more than that but couldn't be sure, but whatever it is i'm sure everyone will claim it is a rip off (and rightly so). unless we go up in which case they can probably justify a price rise. 

 

i won't be able to afford one or practically justify one anyway, work and the fact i couldn't do a midweek means i'd probably miss over half the games anyway. just gonna have to pick and choose, liverpool and everton mainly.

Not really, no. The proposed price structure had already been submitted to the Board for approval before we had our meeting. The question was asked but all Susan said was that the prices 'wouldn't be anybody's worst nightmare' which didn't really give a lot away.

 

My instinct is a small increase for existing STH but think they'll ramp up the price for new applicants.

Don't worry..it doesn't matter about how many games you've been to.
If you're getting 1 in a specific block/seat..get it early as there will be quite a few more STH next season.

..IF we go up.

So why did you seem to turn your nose up at him paying £440 possibly for a season ticket in the championship when some of our fans may have had to pay me. (Though we do watch better football)

It's a cracking bit of marketing by Derby. Go up and you get a season ticket for half price in the premiership, it's obviously worked aswell as they've sold 16,000 season tickets and we're only in the middle of March.

i merely made a little jab at the fact derby might not go up. 

 

you and another poster both said it was incredible that they might pay £220 for a season ticket in the prem and i offered the other side of the coin (probably the more realistic side, too) that in fact he'd pay twice that much to watch another season of championship football. still not a bad price all in all but they will suck people in thinking it is an "incredible" deal and they'd end up getting what is in fact a pretty average price to watch second tier football. 

 

incidentally, for new buyers, derby st prices range from £362 to £610 depending on which "category" you buy (assume that's the same as area in a ground but not sure). ours for this season ranged from £385 to £660 unless you go in the posh bit. very small differences really and one you get to see us play great football and get promoted and the other, well, you have to watch derby :D

Is it possible to sell out the season tickets? I assume that there's a limit on the amount they can shift as they'll want to sell a lot on general sale purely because they'll make more per head. Obviously I'm not expecting us to sell 29,000 season tickets but they'll want a fair few paying for the one match every week.

would take a 10% rise to be honest. But would love it if the clubs 'gift to the fans' was a price freeze. I know they dont really owe the fans anything but would be nice to get something for being a season ticket holder.

I'm not a season ticket holder as I have to work about 2/3 of home games but I think STH thoroughly deserve a price freeze for their loyal support

As others have said be amazed at a price freeze but not too disappointed wiv a 10%only increase for existing ST holders.
New ST ers can kop for a 50%increase to compensate!!!!!!

Is there a limit on max season tickets that can be sold? I don't plan on getting one, but if 25k season tickets are sold, am I gonna get a chance to buy any tickets to any of the big teams??

Don't get me wrong when it comes to watching Leicester I'm equally happy to watch us play Plymouth argyle or man utd, and the fact every game next year will be able to be streamed somewhere on the internet if I don't get tickets, will be nice.

Just wondered if there was a limit?
