This price (if true) will put us back to the usual 3500 season ticket holders.

Effectively we could end up with lower gates than this season even if we are in League 1, unless they're considering dropping the pay on the gate price?

On what do you base that then ?

On the fact that's what we used to get when the prices were high, plus there's a recession on! How many new season ticket holders will pay 400+ next season?

Wow, that is a big increase, if we are still trying to build our ST base then this is the wrong way to go about it, putting 100 on top will discourage people from getting a ST and stop some renewals.

I can understand an increase in prices as they need to get more income for L1 with wage caps etc in place

I really hope this is a top price though for after renewal as I would fear instead of growing the ST database in may decrease with people not being able to stretch that far in the current climate.

On the flip side some people who have paid week by week may see the benefits of buying a season ticket next year

1)  We're starting with a base of (approx) 5500 season ticket holders - that's an awful lot who would decide not to renew on the back of a fantastic season.
2)   350 is about what we were paying before the change of ownership (I think) - 15 per game is still a pretty good price.
3)  We're likely to be in a higher division, watching what everyone seems to think is a much better brand of football than in recent years.
4) It's likely that many of the 'pay on the day' fans from this season will consider a season ticket to be good value, especially if there is a payment plan available.

350 sounds like a lot, but when you think about it that's 15 per game, so 15 every other week. It's not a lot when you think of it like that.

early bird renewals last season were definitely 259 just checked.

if 350 is confirmed as early renewal this season that is quite some hike.

My youngest will stop qualifying for the free under 10's deal next season - an extra 90 quid on mine, maybe 15 or 20 quid on older son's and 100 quid or so for youngest would suddenly see me having to find 550 or so, when it was 330 for this season.

If the prices were kept the same I could probably scrabble up 410, but 500 plus will see me revert to coming to watch games on the odd occassion after 5 seasons with a ST coming to most games.

That is a big increase. It very unlikely, but i'm hoping the concession price doesn't go up as much.

Wait until you find out there is a 15 per ticket booing fee on top Wink

Sorry no laughing matter, it is a shame if true. I can see a reasonable amount of renewals but we were just starting to build a bigger base.

As I said, I hope to god the early bird doesn't do the normal of only lasting 30 days.

As I didnt renew this season I was going to get a season ticket - so mine would be a new season ticket.

If 350 is the early bird renewal price - how much would I be looking to pay 400?

Thats awfully steep compared to this season. I'd have expected an increase in tickets in general - and I know that as a 'new' fan i'd have to pay more but an extra 100 on early bird renewal prices!!!

Anyone that doesn't buy a season ticket because of the "price" isn't a real fan.  Roll Eyes
