Be handy to know how many more need to be sold to get to the first cut off point - surely it can be a marketing ploy by the club - only xxx need to reach 5000 for e.g. lets do this town fans etc etc

Just got our peasants match day tickets and just thought that you may be interested in the fact I have gotten a £5 discount on the normal match day price if £27 for him being a Uni Student. They did ask for some verification so I pointed out his expired season ticket to justify his age and said heíd bring his student union card tomorrow if challenged. Which highlights a point if I wanted to buy tickets for him in advance and they insist on validation of his student stays and heís still at Uni the it will cause an issue. Not today thankfully but I might not get an understanding club shop assistant next time.

I might be wrong but if you purchase them online, it would ask for your SU number {or other relevant learning ID} but see the practical issue in person at la boutique du club

Aberdeen said a while back that the average 'through the gates' ticket price was well below £20 for presumably this exact reason.

The season before last the average match day price was something like £12 for that reason alone. They are really clamping down on it

Same as people at Nationwide sorting their mates out TBH. Can't complain that we have no money to sign players if you are chipping away at the club's revenue.

It didn't when I was at uni in 2019, nor did they check when I collected or when I entered the stadium.

Thatís an interesting comment and has some merit. However, when we have a stadium of letís say 14,500 (Iím sure itís not that but give or take a few seats close enough) which we average I dunno, say for arguments 10,000 on league home games. Having a sponsor who contribute £xxxx, which they donít have to do but also give their employees match day tickets for £10, it makes perfect sense. Under the current sponsorship deal with Nationwide we get a capital income and bums on seats admittedly for less than the average punter but there is also merchandise and concession spending along with capturing future supporters. Balance that against not having Nationwide as a sponsor would we be better off in terms of full paying Nationwide employees coming to make up that Ďlossí?

A full stadium every home game with a waiting list for season tickets and limited walk up ticket availability it wouldnít. But weíre not in that position.

The way I would do it is keep the prices for the side stands but charge a max of £18/£20 for the Town End. Get that stand full every game and get some proper atmosphere back on matchday. Nothing better than a sold out town end in full voice.

No issue with actual Nationwide employees taking part in this scheme. Itís them sorting their mates out that is wrong. You should have to show a staff ID in the same way as you should have to show a student ID on entry etc.

It isnít an employee only deal - pretty sure they can get up to two tickets per category for the benefit of friends and family etc

The thing is do they really need to do it? Let's looka t say a 10k attendance today for example, theres not actually that many more seats you can sell in the home ends
