I never said they didn't go, would just like more to go and this could be a good way to encourage a few more to attend.

 

 

Why if we give them a free ticket they’ll suddenly start paying 40 quid to go?

How about this solution: 

a paying male (or non-binary or whatever) may bring a girl/women for free (as a valentine offer)?

 

Surely gay men will then take hissy fits?!

 

These days, even when you make well-meaning gestures there will be some group taking offence!

I can see their heart is in the right place but seems odd to me.  Why let women get in for free and men have to pay?  In my office there's more women than men working and earning money.  So they get to watch football for free and i have to pay. 

 

I could understand if women on maternity leave get in free.   And i applaud any club allowing children under 16 to get in free.  But allowing over 18's of any sex to get in free when they have jobs, seems weird to me.  There's lots of men put off by going to football too, maybe free tickets would entice them to watch football

How do we know till we try?

I don’t want people to get free tickets for something I have to pay for, furthermore other clubs have had free ticket schemes and they don’t benefit the club. Extra costs incurred for the club such as policing but no financial gain.

i can picture it now, in a bar after the game talking to a woman.  "What did you do today then?"  "i went to the football, for free!, how about you?" "i went to the same game but had to pay £25".  "Unlucky, now get the drinks in that's a good boy".

If they’re going to start giving women free tickets to stereotypically male activities, I hope it also works the other way round, like a free treatment at a spa or something like that. I could do with a good massage and pedicure.

Well stop taking rubbish women who want to go pay for their tickets just like men do. 
Sick of this virtue signalling white knighting rubbish.

 

You are correct, but more probably needs to be done to widen the support base and make it more accessible for women/families/kids or people from non traditional backgrounds to go.

 

I don’t like the idea though of giving one group something for free when another is paying through the nose for it. That doesn’t seem fair at all.

Nah I’d ban kids, they do my head in.

Would hopefully attract a few more fans and demonstrate that women can be fans just much as males.

 

WAWAW


stupid idea. What they should be doing is making football more affordable for all, not just trying to score the moral high ground
