Torquay Ticket Sales
« 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.

Thatís was my big worry but regards ticket pricing itís fairly obvious the club needs money and this is the way to put some money in the coffers I donít think anyone wants to see the club to go belly up I for one certainly dont

Thatís around 20k per month short of the break even figure.

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.

Mallard, of course the fans need to support, but when did the business model that managed to get us to this level change?

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.
