Season Tickets back on sale


Recommended Posts

2nd Comparison at the other end of the scale

 

West Stand Upper - Category A - Adult £39 (8 Games)

West Stand Upper - Category A - Adult £34 (11 Games)

 

That comes out at £686 for the season for all games. That is compared to £646 for the season ticket.. Again the same £40 difference.. or 1 and missed and you lose the incentive

Well, I would still buy a season ticket if they were the same price as a walk up.

 

Guaranteed seat, no queuing for tickets. Priority tickets for away games / cup games etc

 

I'm not in it for the money really as long as it isn't more expensive ;)

I sadly can't afford the one off cost of a season ticket - or justify it as I know I will miss 1 or 2 games at least a season from this coming season being a student as of September. I wish I could. Shame the club don't do a student ticket -

 

But it means I am not being punished massively for not doing so - which pleases me.

 

It used to be though that there was a decent incentive for buying a season ticket with regards to saving compared to cost of walk up.

Many of us have to be much more cost-conscious.

Wonder how much of an influence the backlash over season card prices made to the club's thinking on match day prices. I was expecting a bigger differential tbh.

Yeah and it makes me wonder where next season's prices are heading, too. If the plan is to restore the differential between ST and walk-up costs it could go one of two ways, one of which is going to be very unpopular.

These prices aren't the problem, they're pretty competitive. It was the season ticket prices where they messed up this year.

 

Edit: That said, I hate the idea of categorised games. We're already in the richest league in the world, why try to squeeze an extra fiver out of people because they're seeing Wayne Rooney or Diego Costa?

I'm not well off by any stretch of the imagination. 

 

We are talking about season card vs walk up prices. I don't mind paying the same as I sign up for my piece of mind and to get priority access. I don't begrudge people who need to walk up paying the same price I did in the slightest. Obviously the cost saving is a bonus, but hey - its not the only reason you get a season card surely?

 

Maybe I wasn't quite so clear when I said "I'm not in it for the money really as long as it isn't more expensive ;)" - What I was saying is that as long as i'm not paying more than a walk up ticket i'm not bothered. 

 

Tickets are deffo too expensive and I get the whole being priced out thing for sure

As a long term season ticket holder in west upper, the discount I got on my st actually means I've saved almost £300! However I agree that although the walk up prices seem on the acceptable side of the going rate, the season ticket prices next will be where we fall down

Yes, the benefits that come with holding a season ticket are nice but the cost benefit of holding a season ticket used to be better. For some, it was better than the other benefits and for everyone it was better than it is now. ;)

 

I do understand what you're saying, though.

There's nothing acceptable about home fans having to pay more than away fans. The club are happy

to pay over the top prices and wages for journey men, but are unwilling to look after their own fans.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
