Programme discount for new campaign

Recommended Posts

Not a bad idea to be fair. If you can't make it to games and you like programmes, why not?

 

£100 isn't small change but it's hardly Club 1867.

Some clubs are using apps for programmes now. Obviously not one for the collectors, but could be worth considering as an option in the long term.

How much do you think AN online program would sell for?

Genuine question.

Going to football is expensive enough, without forking out £100 for programmes.

I'm guessing this will only apply to fans who can't get to matches.

 

23 games X £3 = £69 (£31 for postage)

 

In the cup we may get drawn away / get knocked out early.

 

Am I missing something.....unless programmes are shooting up in price.

i thought at first .. WOAH! this is not such a great deal

 

but after @alanharper posted the breakdown of costs, and knowing other clubs do it ... its not actually that bad a deal - especially for the Early Bird offer

 

If you are a collector of programmes, it makes sense to get this, whether you go to games or not - you'll get a pristine copy wrapped up through the door box.

 

Sorted

who the **** comes up with this lot?

whoever is in the think tank, needs to start thinking. WTF: WAWAW blows down the street like tumbleweed, but makes way for £100's worth of programmes sent to your door. 

last week my bank statement went missing, what chance with 20 odd match programmes?

 

Who gets a bank statement through their door in 2019?

Surprised match day programmes still do a turn. Used to the staple of a football game visit - match, pie, programme. 

 

Last time I got one, it was full of advertisements, player profiles, centre page poster, opposition review, and the squad with their season stats.

 

All of which is available online for free.

I always used to buy a programme on match days but then the stewards stopped me from taking my colouring pens and scissors into the match...

When would they arrive? My post like most folks these days comes about 1pm, Ive left for the match on a saturday way before that. Seems a decent idea to me if they are guaranteed the day previous

Not sure. I suppose the attraction is no waste and very limited variable costs.

Clubs have to produce a programme but I know some clubs asked for the rule to changed as they were making a loss . Due to as you say the internet.  Don't know the outcome of the decision tho.

We should be proud of our programme as a football club

It's consistently great - especially when compared to other clubs attempts

I suppose it would become viable if and when print programmes become lose making. You’d do it free and rely on advertising revenue. The EFL voted to remove the requirement on clubs to produce one not long ago. A few non league clubs have experimented with it.

Wow, I didn't realise it was a requirement to produce one! It does all seem a bit dated, that said a lot of football tradition has gone out of the window with all the money flying around, so seeing the programme go would be a sad day.
