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

Thing is there's plenty that have been since 2015

This is true
Matchday attendances have grown in recent years
Need to see how many renew season tickets now (I'd guess most of them unless the cost of living crisis has kicked in on them)

But pricing is good

Just need to get rid of the categories, tiers and phases

If they want 5 categories, why not just A to E instead of a stupid A and A*. Just too add more confusion to the system.

So they can claim prices haven’t changed from last season.

Still think with all these hard times with prices going up on food and bills ect football clubs could lower the prices ..

i'm sure everything is going up for the clubs as well why would you expect them to drop there prices ?........

This is the point


Everyone and everyting is being impacted by Brexit and the cost of living crisis

 

Clubs will have increased bills so shouldn't be expected to drop their prices

But it remains to be seen how it impacts football fans

My guess is if you've got a season ticket then you'll be ok as you'll have paid it off in advance etc

They get more than enough money they just over spend it

Roughly £25-30 to watch Sheffield Wednesday in a league game at Hillsborough is not expensive for 2022.

 

Seriously have a look at the match day pricing from 10, 15, 20 years ago and you’ll see that they have barely moved, coupled with kids getting in for almost nothing

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.

 

 

Even giving away 10-15,000 every game will still  generate income, as they will buy food, drink and merchandise at the ground.

 

and the atmosphere may well spur the team on. But we will adopt your policy and give it 5-10 years and 12-15,000 gates will be the norm.

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

Quite happy with ST prices. Do think kids should be cheap as will have to bring an adult.

No it won't
The hype of football grows the crowds year on year
The coverage, the media spotlight, the social media etc

Quite happy with that, even though ST holder that's my choice  yes sell tickets of cheap for games of kids free with adults...something better than nothing.

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 

We are competing again teams locally in higher leagues charging less.

 

Dont kid yourself this is value for money its only £25-30 if we get promoted the prices will be back up nearer £35.
