Membership Pricing 2018/19

Recommended Posts

Soon to be announced, like a host of clubs have recently. 

 

Some notable prices are; 

 

Chelsea £26.

Man Utd £35.

Man City £35. 

Liverpool £35.

Arsenal £39.

Tottenham £48.

Leicester City £60. 

 

Ours was £50 last season, which is not really acceptable but those without season tickets will probably cough up anyways.

 

Especially on the back of new signings?!?!

Better to compare to Championship clubs really (and what benefits you actually get for the upfront cost). Premiership finances are on a whole different scale you’d basically be complaining about the entire structure of the English game rather than our membership prices. 

 

Not saying ours will compare any more favourably but it will be a fairer fight.

Those prices show just how expensive ours are , if they have the same benefits . Leicester can charge that because demand is so high and they sell out every game .

Comparisons aren't really relevant. Chelsea etc are big clubs with internationalised support and essentially you are signing up for a package of benefits which includes access to tickets for second tier games. 

 

For smaller clubs like us the point should be to offer something for those who want to attend quite regularly but not so often they want an ST and enticing/enabling them to do say 12 home games not 8. To me the sticker price for membership seems too high if that's the intention.

Agree pal, I'm thinking it's a key moment for the club to get fans onboard and if we have lost afew season tickets holders, lets welcome them back in, instead of frightening them off.

Bang On. You can't even buy tickets for most of those clubs without being a member because only early rounds of the league cup ever make general sale. 

 

We are Arsenal members and didn't go to a single games last season so that's pretty poor value!

It does seem a lot compared to those prices above but if you plan to go to at least ten or so matches, then you get it back. That's how I look at it

The most comparable with Wednesday, price wise are Spurs and Leicester.

What do you get for your membership money at these two clubs?

Nothing really. Like Arsenal, Spurs don't give a ticket discount to members. It's actually like a season ticket waiting list. If you pay to be a member every year, you eventually get to the top of the list and can buy a season ticket.

So, assuming all the memberships listed in the op offer the same or similar benefits, Wednesday's £50 (assuming it still is) represents excellent value by comparison.

 

btw, I think the price/match discount combination should be set to give a break even at 5-6 matches.

If every club everywhere scrapped their membership schemes what would actually happen?

Personally, I think it was priced right at £30, £50 is too much. At those Prem clubs, you have to accept it as part of the supply and demand ticket system but at SWFC, it's a rare day that tickets are in short supply.

Another emotive subject and if the club get it right it can have a really positive outcome.

Maybe the club need to test the water by offering £30 memberships with the proviso it will stay at this pricing level if there’s a significant upturn in membership?

No upturn would indicate the club have got it about right?

Think  someone needs to compare it to championship I'm sure we are the dearest as well as the dearest potd tickets , probably why we only get 2k tickets sold for match days as having 21k season tickets and an away following .only the big games see us selling a few more . Next season someone could be paying £49 to watch a team half made up of u23s on less than 1k a week if our fire sale don't stop and injury situation  isn't similar to last season.

The survey don't worry selling star players ,And playing young players would result in reduced ticket prices .
