Title: Admission prices 2019-20
Post by: admin on May 18, 2019, 04:55:04 PM
The club can today confirm general admission prices and season ticket prices for the 2019/20 campaign as members of the National League.

 General admission for 2019/20

Adults: £15 (terrace), £17 (seat).
Concessions 65+ £13 (terrace) £15 (seat).
Students and 16 and 17-year-olds: £9 terrace, £11 seat.
Under-16s: £2 (terrace or seat).

Season tickets (to cover either terrace or seating)

Adults: £290.
Concession 65+: £250.
Students and 16, 17-year-olds: £165.
Under-16s: £20 (to include birthday card signed by favourite player).   

 

Executive VIP season ticket: £775 (includes pre-match buffet, programme, directors seating, parking, programme, complimentary tea and coffee pre-match and half-time). Prices are frozen from previous season.
Season ticket holders will also receive 10 per cent off club shop products, free seating and the ability to reserve seats.

 Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said: "We have attempted to keep increases to a minimum and have done our best to balance this across our pricing structure whilst budgeting for a higher level of football, which will bring increased operating costs to the club next season.
"After much thought, we have introduced, a small charge to under-16s for the new season. I would encourage youngsters to purchase a £20 season ticket, which represents great value, as half of the games will be free to what our are future generation of supporters.
"Also a purchase of an adult season ticket produces a great saving spread over the season.
"We have what looks a very exciting season of football ahead of us and I look forward to your continued valuable support."

Lynn News article:

King's Lynn Town have announced their season ticket prices for the 2019/20 season for their return to the National League.

Depending on age and season ticket category, season ticket prices range from £20 (under-16s) to £290 (adults).

Following their promotion to Step 2 football, the charges represent a slight increase on last season's prices.

Manager Ian Culverhouse saw his side clinch their place in the National League with a 3-2 extra-time victory in the Super Play-Off final at Warrington Last Saturday.


Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said: "We have attempted to keep increases to a minimum and have done our best to balance this across our pricing structure whilst budgeting for a higher level of football, which will bring increased operating costs to the club next season.

In fairness you have to read a post to know what is says.

I just find your constant digs at volunteers of the club (many miss a lot of the game) boring and personally donít think there is any need for it. No club can run without volunteers.

Oh well, hereís to the new season. Looking forward to player announcements soon.

Paul, personally I donít really give  a flying fig what you think to me or my posts.  I will continue to support the club by admission, programme 50/50 and any other monetary way that is on offer.
 
 And just to clarify how are people volunteers when they receive a renumatuon for the job they do ?  Canít have it both ways.

Several of the volunteers I know and talk to receive no pay from the club. Volunteer for free as they want to help the club. Good on them.

Very fair pricing structure.  Thought it might have been higher so good on Cleeve.  Maybe heís relying on Gris pulling his finger out and getting some of his fund raising schemes up and running.  Iím really looking forward to the tin can collection, that should be a real winner.  Itíll be interesting to see what Cleeve does with all the money Gris has said it will bring.  Supposedly ďa nice little earnerĒ, little being the operative word.

Paul itís excellant that the people you talk about take nothing for their time and pay the admission charge the same as the rest of us.   Now if only everyone could be persuaded to do the same.

I know certain people who have helped run the Reserves and not only have they paid to watch but also donated monies to keep the thing running.

All credit to them.

In Trust run Clubs, everyone pays including the Chairperson. All for the common good. In it together and all that.

You make out all volunteers should pay. I certainly donít think they should.

Personally see no relevance in how trust run clubs operate as we arenít one.

What is it with you and the volunteers. I donít see you down the club in your spare time helping out. So what if they get in free - most are volunteering whilst the game is on. Are you telling me you expect people like Zoe who sells the tickets, cooks and other various jobs at the club that she should also pay an entrance fee? Get real and if you have such a problem perhaps approach these so called Ďbackroom staffí  and tell them to their face how you feel about them getting in free.

Seems like you have a problem with me? Maybe because you live in North Wootton and place yourself above oiks like me? As  regards to the beer cans raising money, Of course I know it would not raise much,but it would raise much more than any other suggestions so far! So once again we move up a league and instantly become the most expensive club to attend!! :glum: :glum:

Why on earth would I have a problem with you Gris.  I couldnít care less who you are or what you do and I only comment on what you post on here.  Where I live is irrelevant. Youíre always moaning about costs and itís about time you gave it a rest.  If you donít like it then no one is compelling you to spend on something you think overpriced.  Some people like you might well cease their support, thatís to be expected, but if the club does well, then in my view the gate will increase.  Success costs money and unless supporters pay for it then we are going nowhere. Relying solely on sponsors and hair-brained ill thought-out fund raising schemes is for fantasists.

Please enlighten as to which fund raising schemes you find hare brained and ill thought out?As has been pointed out solar power could be a way forward,and the beer cans maybe could have been a little tongue in cheek,but even that would raise more than any other suggestion we have seen? See the if you don't like it don't go mentality still exists,it has already killed off the bar and increased sales at the Napier,and I notice you said if the club goes well? :dontknow:

Gris, just because yours are the only suggestions it doesnít make them viable or acceptable.  Anyone can come up with glib suggestions which in my view is exactly what you appear to have done. I might be wrong, you might well have detailed plans, costings, viability and feasibility studies all prepared together with projected revenue returns so you can present this to Cleeve for him to consider. I wonder how you classify the ďmentalityĒ reference in your post.  It is not a state of mentality it is a matter of fact. No one is insisting or forcing you spend your money in any particular way, the choice is yours. Moaning about admission charges or the cost of drinks and food within the ground is not getting you anywhere and whatever you say or do is not going to change it.  Just give it a rest.

Prices seem fair enough to me. The seats always used to be £2 more than the terraces so that's reasonable, although obviously quite a jump. A season ticket looks a good deal and as I rarely miss a home game will probably invest in one.

Is this all a little  hasty? Carried away by the promotion success etc , why is the club making these announcements so soon? Surely they would have needed more time to review the likely squad structure, and what that will cost prior to this. It is almost certain they have only just got back to the ground after the wonderful occasion in Warrington and much number crunching remains incomplete. Positive , it may be, but the message is wrong, and a concern.

For Clarity. The season ticket covers 21 first team  league games and ALL home  league fixtures for the clubs other sides.

Cup fixtures will be ALL PAY as usual ( Inc Norfolk Senior Cup).

I understand there is no League Cup competition.

A well used bar on a match day would actually bring in quite a healthy sum of money,been to some away games and there have been up to 5 staff behind the bar. At the Stourbridge game the bar was full troughout the game,and they were serving from a shed as well. :cheers:

Taking money at a bar is completely different to making money at a bar, just ask the ex landlords of the 18 pubs that are closing each week in the uk. I totally agree that a good bar adds to match day atmosphere but selling a hundred or so pints of beer on a Saturday afternoon will generate very little if any profit by time staff costs etc are taken into consideration. I just don't understand the infatuation by some people on here about beer. There's more PROFIT to be made in tea,coffee and food.  :cheers:

Costings for refreshments are what they are. The issue is with getting them at half time. The cafe could really use a third til, and if you were hankering for a pie or a sausage roll much after 2:30, youíre normally out of luck.

Thereís certainly potential to better maximise sales (and therefore profits). Wonít address all the issues. But an extra £500 a match is £10,500 by the end of the season. Would help fill some (small) holes in the budget.

I think it's good that the club have announced the prices so soon after the end of the season as it stops speculation and gives people ample time to buy a S/T or set their budgets accordingly.

I also don't think announcing them is "hasty" as I guess that over the last few weeks, when the prospect of promotion became a realistic achievement, that discussions/decisions were being had/made and the decision of £15 is quite reasonable.........and certainly A LOT more reasonable than the £18 price which was being mentioned by a few

Admission prices spot on, should bring in extra supporters.
Refreshments basically are non existant compared to other clubs.
As I have mentioned before, the bar needs a complete make over to attract supporters in there, turn the TVs on.

Taking money at a bar is completely different to making money at a bar, just ask the ex landlords of the 18 pubs that are closing each week in the uk. I totally agree that a good bar adds to match day atmosphere but selling a hundred or so pints of beer on a Saturday afternoon will generate very little if any profit by time staff costs etc are taken into consideration. I just don't understand the infatuation by some people on here about beer. There's more PROFIT to be made in tea,coffee and food.  :cheers:

If you have a successful bar on a match day it can be busy from start to finish, all of the away grounds I visited last season all he busy bars, all with bar staff run off their feet? I think you will find that even with the very limited choice at our bar and the dragon surroundings and atmosphere more than 100 pints are sold? Why do you think the Lord Napier bends over backwards for Lynn fans on a Saturday afternoon? Do you think they make no profit, how much better would it be if that profit went to the club instead of the Napier?  :dontknow:

Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said: "Firstly, it goes without saying that I am truly delighted for Frazer on securing this move into league football with a great club like Peterborough United.





"I must also thank Peterborough United for their handling of the situation and I am pleased to confirm that King's Lynn Town have been looked upon very favourably financially in the deal that has been agreed.

I would much rather see the money from this sale spent on the team than reducing admission costs.

I've been to a few away games and I haven't seen that many bars that are run of their feet. Rushden seemed busy but it was a pokey little bar. A busy bar with atmosphere is nice and might pull a bit of money in but not critical to a club's finances. The best way for a club to make money is to charge a fair price for tickets and get decent attendances. The new ticket prices are clearly seen as fair by about 99% of the fans who use this forum. It remains to be seen what the attendances will be next season but ticket price increases haven't had a negative impact on attendances thus far so no reason to think there will be any drop off next season.

Agree with this in terms of Lynn fans, however a lot of teams will bring decent sized travelling contingents.

Team should do well and so crowds will be there...the likes of York City, Chester, Darlington, Hereford should provide enough interest for crowds to be well up on last year.

There is an additional cost to the bar that hasn't been mentioned and that's the policing and stewarding of potential unruly behaviour. Instead of 50 or so away fans , on regular occasions there could be 100-250. Lynn fans don't have an unblemished record themselves .
Think I would be looking to improve the food, hot drinks, soups and  and light drinks and yes improve the atmosphere, maybe have soccer on the Tv...my stance would be, that if people want to drink alcohol they can go to the pub after the match and talk over the game. For the vast majority of the season I am wanting something warm to eat and drink to be honest.

The money goes into the pockets of the players not the chairman and I don't begrudge them a penny of it. The club isn't a cash cow that Cleeve will milk dry! He's already put in shed loads of his own money. Yes, I am sure that in the long term he will hope for some sort of return but I am convinced that his main motive for taking on project KLTFC is the buzz of making great things happen.

I bought my Concession Season Ticket for 2019/20 before end of Season for £220.

I take it that it is still valid?

Mr Cleeve posted on Twitter that if you brought a Season Ticket before the Super Play-Off Final price would be the same as last year and would be valid for the coming Season..Hope that helps.

Thanks but does it include entrance to the stand?

I didn't actually mean straight into his pocket so he could have a couple of weeks all paid in the Maldives or something, it will all be thrown intothe pot so to speak!! We don't know what we got but even if we got 30 or so grand just how far would that stretch if no tangible income was there to back it up?

Good reality check...some similar sums being raised for other clubs in conf north......this is the level now....it's not about the odd hundred here and there its about significantly bigger sums. This is a league Lynn deserve to be in and it does require a change in mentality.
