Title: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: LUFC1992KLFC on December 07, 2020, 10:35:44 AM
Be interesting to see if the Chairmans gamble of pushing prices up pays off for him.
Whilst we all get why - the pricing out of kids, families and pensioners seems a tad overboard.
If he sells out then crowds return when prices revert to normal, then well done. If they dont.........................

If he canít sell out on a limited capacity with the top of the League as visitors with people having been starved of live Football, then he and MH should hang their heads in shame.

nothing to do with the fact that there is a deadly virus out there. Having seen how crowds were jammed together at Norwich didn't see much social distancing.

Given that theyíre still trying to drum up sales today, one might presume theyíre not flying off the shelves as hoped for by the chairman.

Was never going to sell out on first day - no matter what the price!

Saw the chairman tweet yesterday and over 400 sold by 11am yesterday (presume that didn't include members & season tickets holders).

Looking at some of the attendances for clubs at our level who've had fans back, doesn't look like any have sold out yet?

If the 84k Gov gift is being kicked into the long grass then the fans need to step up to the plate and fill that void.   Canít be  expecting Stephen Cleeve to bankroll the club to that extent.   

This season is going to prove difficult enough to compete with a lot of full time clubs and would hate to see a budget cut come into play on top of that.  This is our first time at this level so need to make every effort to try and keep us there.   Gates of 600-700 wonít do that.

Hereís hoping a lot of fans will make late purchases to boast the numbers.   Wish I could be there.

Do you not remember SC saying he wasnít prepared to continue to fund the club out of his own pocket ?   I guess this was why a full time commercial Manager was appointed to make good that shortfall.  However it still needs 2,000 people paying their £20 at the Walks

Yes, quite a while ago now, but presumably he did!  :dontknow:

You have to cut your cloth accordingly. If that's what it takes to survive then so be it (as disappointing as that may be).

No Club can continue to have more going out than it has coming in indefinitely.

Of course it has. We all know why is been done but that don't make it right. Dispels the myth of us being a community club as far as I am concerned.

If its a sell out I don't think it should be automatically accepted that it was the right decision to make. However if its not a sell out (of 1400), then imo it will show it wasn't.

Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: Mallard on December 09, 2020, 07:02:42 PM
1400 ?   I donít think that was the figure for the test game.  I seem to recall that had a ceiling of 800.  If they canít sell 800 at the top dollar being asked then Messrs Hearle and Cleeve have got it wrong.

It seems the prices have caused a certain amount of bad feeling from some supporters, but the club needs to survive and the clubs customers need to play their part.
Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: TonyM on December 09, 2020, 07:07:01 PM
The original pricing was a difficult decision and I think many clubs, not just Lynn, have been caught out by the lower than expected take up of tickets.  There are still plenty of fans who when weighing up the pros and cons will settle for the stream in the short term, personally as much as I miss standing on the terraces I can't justify going (at any price)

If we don't hit capacity (has it been officially confirmed @ 800?) for Torquay then maybe SC will have a rethink for kids / concessions for Notts County which would presumably be 1400 capacity barring any conduct this weekend that would stop any increase.
Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: Blue_and_Gold on December 09, 2020, 07:13:07 PM

 (has it been officially confirmed @ 800?)

That was going to be one of my two next questions.

Has it been confirmed that its a maximum 800 (to include season ticket holders and the freebies)?

Does it have to be all ticket or is it permitted to pay at the gate on the night?

He might have found the tipping point when it comes to pricing. Up until know demand has remained high whatever the price. Now, due to Covid, demands fallen, prices might need to fall too. Or at least offer a accompanied kids price. Clearly theyíre not taking up a full paying adults space as they thought they might, and you might even get a few more adults in if they can have an outing at a reasonable price.

A similar approach to seated season tickets at the start of the year wouldíve netted them a few more quid as well.
Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: Paul47 on December 09, 2020, 07:34:44 PM
Canít see this 800 figure anywhere official? Only think Iíve read and heard from the chairmanís podcast is 1,400 capacity? Can someone put the link up of whereís itís officially been said?

With regards selling out - Iíve seen clubs who havenít increased pricing not selling out, thereíll be 2 obvious reasons if we donít.

Did read it was online tickets only with none available from the ticket office on the day
Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: Blue_and_Gold on December 09, 2020, 08:45:14 PM
Paul. I don't think anything official has been said about the permitted gate for Torquay only being 800.

Cleeves 1400 statement on his podcast was before the cancellation of the Ladies game (which has been said was going to be the "test" game).

Prior to the cancellation of the game he had appealed to as many supporters to attend as it could  have a bearing on the permitted gate for Torquay (or words to that effect).

Since the cancellation of the game it has been said that ticket numbers could be restricted.

My understanding is that a condition of supporters bring allowed back into watch the games is that a "test" game has to be held first. As the Ladies game was cancelled, we haven't had the chance to hold a test game, hence people mentioning the 800.

I stand to be corrected on this but I don't think the figure of 1400 has been mentioned since the Ladies game was cancelled, and although the figure of 800 has been mentioned I don't believe that number has been mentioned by the Club either.

With regards to other Clubs not selling out, maybe they had not been able to have a test game either, so the numbers were restricted. I noticed one Club (could have been Weymouth) had a declared gate of exactly 800.

Hopefully the above is all correct but be good if others could either confirm or correct me.

I believe it was under estimated the number of concessions, particularly teens, that make up the normal attendance.
Kids donít have disposable income to throw around. Itís ok saying they should of got a season ticket, however I would of guessed they like many would of worked out what they and parents could afford and value for money they thought they would get from a season ticket.
Be such an embarrassment if not a sell out and concessions who felt priced out are sitting at home.
This one game was never going to be the clubís saviour. Long term engagement with potential supporters is !

Only know what's been said.

That the permitted gate  for Torquay game could depend on the attendance of Ladies game,  which was cancelled.

After it was cancelled it was said that tickets for Torquay game could be restricted.

The 800 figure mentioned is not unique to KL and neither is the subject of a test game.

Mallard are you a comedian in your spare time. THE CLUBS CUSTOMERS NEED TO PLAY THEIR PART.
So might you suggest that Marks and Spencers put up their prices for a £5 childs t-shirt to £20 and the customers will flock to support it.
Absolute BULL!
The club needs to be doing their part NOT alienating their loyal fans who turn out year in and year out ! Expecting a family of 4 to pay
£100 to sit and watch the game is going to do far more harm than good. Even at that you were not guaranteed a ticket, but shelling out another £140 for membership would.
One of my very first words to SC on the way to visit the Joma tradeshow at Harlow at the start of his reign was that " You think you have bought Chelsea but we are not even the non league version of Chelsea".
At this rate it will be cheaper to go to Chelsea!
Title: Re: Torquay Ticket Sales
Post by: Mallard on December 10, 2020, 08:29:17 PM
Well SC and MH are of the opinion the clubs paying customers will be prepared to pay a premium price to be one of the  people who can be there to watch top class non League football.

Itís their club, their decision.   They will either have got it right or you will be proven right and the prices will come down.

Letís see who is right.   Donít forget any income shortfall has to be made right out of SCís pocket.   At in excess of 100k per month itís not a decision to be taken lightly.

I'm not so sure on that one. It will be an interesting one to see.

Somebody has said on another thread about 1,000 to 1,100.

Personally I would think anywhere near a thousand would be a good result and although would obviously not be what Cleeve would want, from zero to a 1000 is not to be sniffed at and should be regarded as a sucess.

Lots of things coming into play at moment. Obviously a very serious Pandemic, big price hike, dislike of social distancing rules, concern that people will not observe such rules, lack of seating due to restrictions, Christmas shopping and the expense involvec, reduced income for many due to Covid, current form of the team etc etc.

On the positive side, the game is against the league leaders.

Crowd behaves and then build from there again, especially if we get the better of Torquay today.

First thing is what a fantastic performance and result.  Take your pick for MOM.  Anyone from Mair to Gash, and many ports in between.

Hopefully this will install some inner believe into the squad and dare I say it ( dare dare) fans as well.  IC got his tactics spot on. 

As for the gate, Jesus.  Oh dear.   Just goes to show how wary people are of attending public events.  Is that really such a bad thing, with the vaccine programme ready to kick in wholesale in the new year.
Think  it is something the club ( and many others) will have to contend with in the short term.

There are a great number of not so young supporters who follow Lynn.  Can anyone really blame them for staying away and keeping safe ?

Same here. I didn't expect it to be anywhere near capacity but I didn't expect it to be at the levels we had when in UCL.

It's anyone's guess why people didn't attend. I would guess peoples reasons will be varied, but personally I would assume its the fear of the virus (sensible) and the hike in ticket prices (especially at this time of year) that played the major roles.

Great result and performance though................I really didn't expect that either.

In reply to your comment Jesus, I think it was a big mistake charging children the full whack. As family
are classed in the same bubble I feel SC made a big error of judgement. Surely as the club and therefore SC needs as much revenue as possible charging kids their normal price would have brought in more more supporters and more money. Very disappointing gate for the first game in front of supporters especially as Torquay are top of the league
Brilliant point gained by the Linnets so well done to all concerned.  :scarf:

First and foremost fantastic performance.

Potential reasons for lowish crowd:
Fear of virus.....rates increasing again...many fans of a certain age
Cost..not only price high (the kids issue was probably an error) but more importantly many have been hit very hard over last 9 months.....and it's an expensive time- Christmas coming up
Cold, wet day
Possible assumption that it might be another heavy defeat to a top side
Match viewable on stream...a much cheaper warmer, safer option

...and looking at the rest of the league, the vast majority had crowds in the 700's, so more the mood of the nation rather than a local phenomenon
