Season tickets?
« on: May 28, 2023, 07:18:26 PM »
With many clubs making fairly good reductions for early bird tickets why have we not released any prices yet? will there be an early bird ticket,will the season tickets offer enough of a saving to promote themselves? Will Mr Cleeve go ahead and increase the entry prices? :dontknow: :bankrupt: :scarf: :scarf:

Stopped buying season tickets years ago. Not queuing to buy your ticket was one benefit that has gone with online purchasing. Also the financial benefits of committing early are not worth it anymore. Used to be much better value if you managed to make it to most of the games. Now if you miss a couple it's better value to pay as you go. Also the deals getting chucked in every so often when there is a run of home games devalues it even more.

I have been informed that there will be an Early Bird season ticket for the first time, but isn't it ironic that most other teams Early Bird offers are coming to an end having already been on the market for six weeks!

Still of the opinion that for clubs at our level there are better options to season tickets, as WRH notes the online option reduces the hassle factor that season tickets used to solve and whilst it is right for the club to try on reward regular supporters, the truth is the club has to be funded somehow and gates are not really high enough as it is without decreasing the £/game that many want to provide a value for money season ticket

There is a benefit to fans as we save money but the main benefit is to help the club fund pre-season and early season expenses. Including possibly buying players and paying signing on fees, before the money from attendances arrives. Even that is clearly spread throughout the season so season tickets are a major aid to cashflow.

I don't think we sell enough season tickets to make much difference to pre season dealings, I don't think we sold more than 100 last year, but I stand to be corrected? :dontknow:

I would have thought that £30,000 to £40,000 would have helped anyone's cashflow

I can see how season tickets can inject some early season cash, it's a good point.
If it's vital funding for the club they need to make them more appealing. Pay your lump sum early, both parties should benefit.
This could be better value per game as mentioned before. Maybe a free food or drink item every game. Is there a family ticket that works out cheaper than multiple individual tickets?  Also with the addition of online purchasing, is it possible to add an opinion to purchase 10 unspecified matches at the start of the season? Each time you scan in at the gate it deducts a ticket from your account. With a use it or lose it agreement. This may be of interest to regulars who know they can't make it to every game and don't see the point in a season ticket.
