How can you have a * in league 1  😆.

Mighty Dingles or Rams.

Incase we get to the play offs again they can charge more. Very short sighted by the ones setting the ticket prices.

It's more the kids prices that frustrate me. Under 5s are £5 then it doubles in price. Not many kids under 5 are going enjoy it that much anyway. I'd make it a fiver right up to 16 year old.

Less than 4 pound a game for u11s with a season ticket

We also had 15,000 empty seats because £25-30 is too much for walk up fans to attend watching watch division 3 football.

 

£20 is plenty for division 3 football.

Tire of these threads a bit.

 

Essentially we have 15,000 empty seats because our capacity is too big for our regularly attending fanbase.

 

We could give them away for nowt and within three or games it would be the same fans turning up that are purchasing season tickets every season.

 

The penny should have dropped by now whilst we are out of top flight and for a few games when we're in it, 25k home seats is plenty.

Which is great value if you can go to every game. I work a lot of Saturdays so wouldn't be worthwhile getting a season ticket. Like I said before the adult matchday prices are just about acceptable for league one football but kids 5 and over is too much IMO

Perhaps. I dunno. If that's so then tier five and six clubs are massively overcharging and perhaps you'd think they are. I didn't have a sense paying £20 at York last season was particularly surprising or out of order.

 

My vote would definitely be to do more to bring kids and young people in. There has been a weird price spike at age 17 which makes no sense in terms of income available to that age group. I'd also go quite hard on student discounts.

Play off games have been priced cheaper though then normal matchday tickets?

Yeah they should be. Portsmouth is Category A* and Charlton is Category A. I don't think they are too bad for adults to be honest but I'm gonna start taking my son who's just turned 5 and £10 seems a bit steep for that age.

Have they already said Portsmouth is A* ?

How are category prices determined? Based on final positions last season Portsmouth were basically mid-table (10th) so should be CATEGORY B on this criteria.

Maybe they are based on the position of the opposing club when they play us. As above,  based on all teams level at start of season.

Low and behold they are CATEGORY A* which means at least another half dozen will be classed as similar.

If geography is a factor then this match should be CATEGORY D.

 

IMO a poor system of pricing.

How do the club decide which opponent is which category? 
 

In this dogshite division pretty much every team should be category C or D. Only the local derby with Barnsley should be any higher.

I think that people who expect £20 a game in 2022 for the fourth division let alone our level in todays football climate are living in cloud cuckoo land.

 

There are many things we haven’t got right as a club but pricing is in my view absolutely bang on when considering the market (rough average £50 premier league, £30 championship, £25 league one)
 

By my reckoning I think the average match day price at Hillsborough  has gone up roughly £5 in 10 odd years (had a season ticket for over 15 years but remember buying tickets for uni mates in 2007 for £26 on the North) which is madness when considering inflation

The flip side to that argument is that we'd have a higher regularly attending fanbase with cheaper pricing

 

(That's not MY view necessarily but the flip side to what you're saying)

it’s based on level of interest I imagine, so first home game of the season = high category. 
 

I expect the final game will be too, plus New Year’s Day, maybe the Barnsley match and any top of the table clashes

I got hammered on here for saying the ticket prices would strangle the club and put the fan base off 

 

haven’t been since 2015

Should be free for the young man imho
