The Season Tickets Renewal Thread

Recommended Posts

Thats if u move from the luxery of the grandstand 2 the kop

I know what you mean, I sit on the kop and if I had to move to another stand I wouldn't go to the match.

I've always sat on the kop, well stood and then sat, since I was a kid, I used to stand at the front clinging onto the fence watching Curran (my hero). If someone said to me next season you need to move to the South/North I just wouldn't bother.

I don't get the attraction with the North/South, it's like watching tennis. I'm sure you feel the same about moving from somewhere you've sat for years to the kop just for different reasons.

Im coming back (So I guess anyone reading this is about to re-think their decision to re-new) and I will be sitting on the Kop or North. I don't mind moving as long as facilities in the North and Kop are modernized this pre-season.

The plans for a creche are on hold.

Havent had time to look myself , but have the matchday prices for next season been announced yet. I would like to know these before deciding my options on this.

I reckon they will be reduced by no more than £1 from the current prices

eg- North Stand to be £22

There are major f**k ups but there are also very good moves.

Oh, and I agree, the reward for season ticket holders from 3 years is a brilliant move.

Very dissapointed TBH expected better .We need to sign some quality players and have a serious promotion push to justify this

We are in the middle of a credit crunch FFS.

£468 for me if I'm going to renew on the South again this season - saving £50 on last season's ticket which was far far too high anyway. Was expecting it to be better to be honest.

Can't fault the Club for the free tickets for under 8's - and just because it may not apply to you it doesn't mean it can't be praised.

But to see so many fans getting free tickets for quite a few games this season has got increasingly more annoying but I always had the hope that the season ticket prices for renewals would reflect our loyalty, but they're a long way off.

The Grandstand being closed is going to make Hillsborough look fuller with those being relocated to the North and Kop - but sales won't be great.

Let's hope they keep to their word and we see some decent signings in the summer.

Hang on!! is the grandstand being closed or is just there no family enclosure, I pay top prices with my dad to sit with the extra leg room on the grandstand. Pay a premium get a premium

no where have I read there closing the grandstand to top whack paying customers. if they do i wont be renewing for the first time in 16 years. Its not worth the 300miles+ round trip to sit crammed up in the seats anywhere else in the stadium and watch the crap we provide.

My situation too, been in family stand for a number of years and actually paid extra on renewal day for us to move all 5 seats to right behind the directors box, (padded seats & better view). Was looking forward to a reduction which aint going to happen now.

Have never enjoyed going on North or Kop due to lack of leg room.

Oh and i've already bought both pigs dvds.

So what you're really saying is that the "previously well run club" seriously undersold some of the best seats in the ground, and you wanted to retain them for future years at even less cost!

Think it will come down to new siginings for a lot of people, Adebola type signing's won't be enough.

if this is true then good news

Maybe good news if you're considering buying a shirt which personally I'm not.

I wonder what RS have to say on the matter because I think the ST crisis is going to be a big issue on today's phone-in. They'll probably say it's a good deal or something to try and keep the club relationship sweet.

I think people are taking too much notice of the pigs:

The Pigs clearly have much much much more money than we do and so can still afford to offer what are most likely the lowest prices in this league (and most certainly the premier if they go up). They can do this and still pay big wages etc.

If we do this we will have alot less income and this will reflect on the wage budget.

What do we want stupidly low prices with a poor product or a happy medium? Because unfortunately we're not in a position to have both at the minute.

What good is 25,000 season ticket holders watching the team get hammered every week? People would stop turning up anyway.

I think these prices are ok considering everything. Although I doubt they are going to boost attendances as much as they thought.

Anyone on here got 2 Under 8's?

Im sure your only allowed one free, so if any adult not getting a u8's ticket can help others who need it then it could help people struggling to pay.

I'm very happy with the new prices. Making the south a bit more of a premium experience is a good idea. Kop is excellent value for the normal fan.

Has anyone read the interactive booklet with his comments in, the family stand has moved to the north stand. So thats now 3,000 seats with excellent views and good facilities shut off?

Is the Grandstand actually closing or is it a case of pay south stand prices to sit up there?

Grandstand has some of the best views and definitely the best legroom.

I think there are decent deals there.

if people dont like the prices in certain areas then just move, its not the end of the world in most cases.

Its good for young families and it rewards the elderly. People are always going to moan but I think the club does need to make more of the south stand.

The proof will be in the pudding though, if it gets decent football on the pitch then it may all be worth it.

O it`s that simple is it well 1st thing I was very happy sitting in the family enclosure 2nd thing now that I have been forced out it`s going to cost me 571 in the sth 495 in nth or 400 in the kop . I`m so happy that good deals or to be found it just seems like us with kids 8 and over are paying for them . WELL PISSED OFF it`s looking like I will not be renewing THANKS LEE

I don't see the problem generally

All these people saying "I only save £X.XX" need to take a good long look at themselves.

All these people who have grown a year older and as such fall into a different bracket where it costs more need to do likewise.

It'd be great if it cost £50 throughout the ground but thats not viable.

A deal cannot be done for every single personal circumstance possible, perhaps the club could have 'guaranteed' nobody paid more than this season... offering a price match for the few who are genuinely disadvantaged by the changes due to having 17 kids or something like that.

I was hoping to get a season ticket on the South, not sure whether I will now as I'd struggle to justify the expense considering I'm not likely to take advantage of the premium facilities.

I have no God given right to watch the match from a throne-like seat whilst being sexually gratified by my own personal servant. I either cough up and go to watch or I don't, if I can't afford the South Stand I'll maybe downgrade. Simple as.

As far as I know, its going to be shut down.

If so its got pro's and cons;

Pros-

Less cost to operate

People more compact in other areas of the ground

better atmosphere elsewhere.

Cons-

Good seats and views gone.

I shall be in my usuall seat on the north.

£405 isn't bad and a reduction.

And a shirt for £25.

P.S Was in the puma shop in meadowhall yesterday evening, if the SWFC training gear is even remotely as good as the Ferrari stuff they have in their were onto a winner.

Plus SWFC have a ready made retail outlet i meadowhall as well.......

Hell my car tax is £210 alone this year and i pay about £80 a month council tax anyway.

To put things inperspective a season ticket is the same cost as five months council tax.

For which you get your bins emptied.

quick question. Does anyone know if the £10, £5 and £2.50 student prices will still be available next season if so it cheaper to buy game by game than too buy a student season ticket, which works out at £8 a game before the 30th of May cut off date.
