If I'm reading it correctly and it's £90 for standard adult membership, then unfortunately this is the first year I'm priced out.

Beat me to it. £90 is ridiculous. I would normally have defended the club even remaining at £50 but for me living in MK and not going to midweek games anymore I gave up my s/t from last year and was going to get membership just can't justify £90 I will probably only get to 6 or 7 games this season and I wouldn't have minded being down £20 but no way am I going to get to earn the potential savings they are offering.

Surely the time has come to say enough is enough.

 

£90 is absolutely fu*king mental.

£90??? Who the hell can afford that? The only addition they've made is a set of vouchers for the megastore that you can't even use on the kit. 

 

This is embarrassing for the club.

If it's £90 

 

Then I will take my chances for any play off final ticket with my meagre points total

 

Or some cockeny ticket tout

 

Thank you

When you look into the vouchers for the megastore for example you're going to have to spend an awful lot more to achieve the savings they are offering, and you can't even use them on kits which is what most people will spend their hard earned on!

Megastore voucher details
All Members will receive 12 gift vouchers:
4 vouchers offering £20 off against purchases of £70 or more
4 vouchers offering £15 off against purchases of £60 or more
4 vouchers offering £10 off against purchases of £50 or more
Only one voucher per transaction
Vouchers cannot be used on 2018/19 replica kit or any sale items. Membership card must be present at time of purchase.

 

So if my calculations are correct you have to spend a minimum of £720 in the shop on anything but the kit to use all the vouchers. Hope there are a lot of gnome collectors!

A missed opportunity to get fans back on board after a poor season, well done Chansiri

 

The most expensive membership package known to football

Same with me. I don't go to home games because I can't afford the travel so I tend to go to games in the south that I can get to. The membership has always been handy to give me a chance of getting a ticket, plus it gives me a chance to support the club a bit better considering I can't usually get up to Sheffield. I felt £50 last year was expensive but I still felt the benefits meant it was something I could still stretch to. £90 is too much and there's no way I can justify spending that.

Shame, not a package for me. 

 

The club didn't price me out of a season ticket, but considering I live 3 hours away would only attend 12-15 games at best, although I would have taken a season ticket have been waiting for the club to show some ambition for the forthcoming season with a signing or two to raise my optimism levels and justify the investment. 

 

I was rather hoping for a membership along the lines of last year, maybe with a little more value, but see no value in this whatsoever. I am not going to break even based on number of games attended and do not spend that much in the shop.

 

Everything about the club's pricing strategy remains Premier League, except the facilities, team on the pitch are nowhere near. Becoming increasingly difficult to justify the prices and near £200 investment per game including tickets travel etc to watch mid table Championship football so unfortunately will do as last year and pick the cheaper games and watch televised matches at home.

 

Another disappointment of mine, is that the club offer concession season tickets for disabled supporters, but no concession for POTD tickets, why?

I can't justify spending that. Work and family means I got nowhere near attending enough games last season to make a saving on overall spend; I'd be quite happy to waive 50 notes, but 90 quid just feels like a p*sstake.

No chance will i be buying one. £90 is crazy money! I'm not sure how you can justify that sort of pricing at any level of the game let alone division 2 football. 

 

Makes me laugh the total saving if you go to every game surely the point of a membership is for those who can not go to every game.

 

Make it £30 max even if you only get a discount for lower category games you would still get plenty of takers.

 

I will wait for the gate prices to come out but I do feel like im being pushed out of supporting my team. Will have to be very selective this season.

Trying to decide which is worst 1867 Scheme or these Membership prices. Either way it appears to be very little consultation with fans, nor consideration of them. Do we actually pay people to come up with these ideas, if so more evidence of cash being squandered. DC in this instance should stand for Deserving of Criticism.

Bit pricey that membership, makes my season ticket look cheap.

A non member would have to pay £39 to watch the first home game of the season.

 

And that's the cheapest price.

 

This club absolutely kills me some times.

Absolute joke. Vouchers a waste of time for most people as the club shop is pathetic. I wasn’t even sure about renewing £50 membership - was going to wait to see if they sold best players or not but no way am I renewing at £90. This will end badly for the club. I can’t see many people paying £90

Bought a membership last few years as we don't live in Sheffield. Never got any value for money but a way to support the club.

 

No chance I am buying one at £90. Club is pricing out fans from further away.

 

 

Use the vouchers in the club shop....as long as it's not on the one thing you'd want to buy from the club shop  -

 

Megastore voucher details
All Members will receive 12 gift vouchers:
4 vouchers offering £20 off against purchases of £70 or more
4 vouchers offering £15 off against purchases of £60 or more
4 vouchers offering £10 off against purchases of £50 or more

Vouchers cannot be used on 2018/19 replica kit or any sale items. Membership card must be present at time of purchase.

The club shop voucher thing is another con.

 

What if you don't want to buy anything?

 

Believe it or not Chansiri, there's still people in this world who just want to attend a football match.

 

I don't want a new mug, car mats or an overpriced t-shirt with a badge of an Owl that looks like it's had a weekend bender in Vegas.
