Matchday prices announced


Recommended Posts

Doncaster have got sensible match ticket pricing.

 

£22 for seats near the halfway line, £21 everywhere else. No categories, the same for every match.

 

So our fans will pay £21when we go there.

 

They are also doing flexible 10 game and 5 game tickets which can be used at any match.

10 games for £160-£180. 5 games for £85-£95, depending on where you sit. And they don't have to be used at different games, 5 people could use them for one match.

We havent had a 14,000 crowd since we played Stevenage in a midweek game under Megson about ten years back.

Dunno why you think Ipswich Reading and Swansea are 'nothing clubs'.  What does that make us?


Was it a cup game??  26/01/2018

Perfect


I'd even scrap that extra quid for halfway line and make all tickets £22

I think our tickets are fine at the prices announced however, that multi-ticket option is a great idea.

Did it?? Did we average more than a cat A game that is like treble the price or more? Did we make more in revenue through increased gates (if there were increased gates).
 

Demand based pricing seems to work, expensive games have the highest crowds, cheaper games have reduced crowds. That only gets amplified I’d imagine with fixed pricing. 

 

 

The last time we tried it properly was the Charlton game in 2016. Looking at comparable matches that added about 9000 to the gate - c30k as opposed to 21k. 
 

 A one off gesture based on that precedent wouldn’t prove too costly.  Back of the envelope figures admittedly - assuming we had 15k season ticket holders 6 x £30 would have been £180k - less VAT = £150k. 15 x £10 would have been £150k. - less VAT = £125k.  Obviously concessions changes figures.
 

Add back extra stuff from selling programmes, food, merchandise plus the good PR. 
 

As a one off gesture to fans that’s affordable. A week of Barry Bannan.

Doncaster category A 😂


This will be one of our biggest games of the season - a local rival and a team likely to be up there next season.  Sadly, this is where we are.

Cheers. I hadn’t realised you were saying one off gestures. Makes sense.

Why tho?


Why have any categories at all?


We've all been brainwashed into thinking categories are something football should have but in reality what do we need them for?

 

Just average out the ticket prices over the season that you would have charged using a category system and just put all tickets on sale at that one price (any stand too)

 

Simplify it

No need for it to be complex in the slightest


It should be the same as buying a packet of crisps

Not like this:


"How much are the crisps mate?"

"well where will you be eating them?"

"Eh?"

"Where will you be eating them and how old are you, and have you got a crisps membership card?"

Is the membership card valid for Seabrooks Cream Cheese & Chive  crinkle cut🤔

The price difference between categories  A and C on the kop is less than a pint 

 

 

4 quid a pint ?

I’ll not be supping in your alehouse any time soon

 

> 18% increase C to A

 

 >33% increase D to A😳

You need to get out of weatherspoons and ask for a pint of morretti  or peroni and see how much change you get from a fiver

FA Cup 4th round on a Friday night.  Even I swerved it and I’ve missed less than a dozen homes since December ‘69.

Didn’t realise we were talking p!sswater 

Never been in a Wetherspoons in my life - Fascist b@stard😳

Do you a deal - every time you buy a pint drop your “change from a fiver’ in a jar ( + 4 quid per game ) & let me have it  @ start of next season - should come in handy towards a Season Ticket ( &/or a reight good sesh [on the Peroni])😉
