IMO Match day prices up slightly but season tickets reduced - try and get people signed on early and through the door every week.

Bradford are doing their early bird season tickets at 149 and have already sold over 3k in less than 2 weeks.

Rather have 3k season tickets sold at 150 than 800 at 350 and then relying on results to boost the crowd. But needs a good incentive for people to get on board and buy early.

Season ticket reduction sounds good idea

I still have my Palace stub.

When are we going to get the benefit for that promotion...?

We already have. You must have been away if you missed out.

Barnet home seating tickets were 19 away fans we paid 23

So i think we need to charge the away fans more certainly not home fans

as i have said before categorize games

the like of Pompey cat A so up the price the away fans pay by 3 or similar
Cat B games up the price by 1-2
Cat C games leave the price the same

if we had upped the price by 3 for away fans (and thats still cheap compared to some) when Pompey came down that's a cool 6900 in added revenue and they could have brought down many many more

I hate categorisation in football. Certain premier league fan groups have worked really hard to get rid of this, at their clubs.

I realise your point, isn't aimed at us, as home fans paying more, but 'bigger' clubs shouldn't be punished because they are simply 'bigger'.

We're all playing in the same league, home and away. Therefore we are all as big as one another, hence why prices, whatever they are should be consistent throughout the season.

they weren't at Barnet as the latest example of this being used, however i know not all clubs use this idea Carlisle certainly don't

its all a supply and demand issue where Demand out ways supply the price goes up, it may not sit comfortably with some but why should the club make some extra cash from team bringing over 2000 fans down

afterall if we want quality players the money has to come from somewhere

It does indeed, that I agree with. It doesn't sit right with me that other fans, because of who they support have to pay more. That isn't their fault, and they shouldn't be 'punished' for it.

I won't ever agree with it.

Money and attendances are always going to be an issue it seems, which is why it's vital, in my opinion that we have continuity and stabilisation within this division for the foreseeable future. Better marketing, although started this season will always take time to have an impact and I sense it's a conversation for another day.

In terms of prices for next season, I'm happy to pay 20. I sit in the east stand and currently pay 18 a game, plus a pound for my son. If they increased this to 21 next season, it wouldn't put me off.

If someone brings their son/daughter to a match and pays a quid for them to get in they don't mind paying 16 or 20 for themselves because its really like paying 8.50 or 10 each.

I'd like to see a system where fans can buy a season ticket that entitles you to discounted match day prices.

For example you'd pay 75 for a season ticket and this would enable you to enter the stadium for say 5 , 6 or 7.per match.

So it was 19 to sit along the touch line and it was 23 to sit behind the goal??
That is a *beep* take.
Had I gone, I would have paid the 19 then got myself moved behind the goal.

I don't see why not.

Who pays for the extra costs involved in hosting a game of 2300 away fans, compared to a game with 200 away fans?

Should the club factor in the increased away support of some teams and thus charge more for all away fans to compensate for those with less support?

I'm currently paying 17 to sit in the east stand with my son!!!

Ask for one adult one child family ticket and it's cheaper than an adult ticket on its own!!!
It's a fantastic deal but you have to state the family offer!!!!

Charging away fans more is fine, I've got no issue with that. I just don't think different sets of fans should pay a different price, for what is essentially the same experience, watching their team in the same area of an away ground?

What are they getting that is different? How is their experience improved, to justify a price increase?

Clubs should set their whole pricing structure accordingly so hosting any game is affordable and doesn't create a problem. Does the increased income of hosting these big games, through attendances, food, and anything else not compensate for the extra outgoings in hosting?
