They get more than enough money they just over spend it 

well i dont know how much they bring in but seen we lose north of a million quid a month and still have team in the 3rd tier so i dont see how how cutting income is going to help .

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

 

 

Our fan base is getting older, we do nothing to attract new fans, we do nothing to get students into Hillsborough.

 

Our plan is if your a fan you buy a season ticket, everyone else can lump it.

 

From 2016/17 our average attendance has been dropping year on year in just 6 seasons its  gone from 27,000 to 22,400. I suspect this trend will continue as finance get tighter for many people.

One of my sons is going to be a Sheff Uni student this season and I had a look to see what is on offer for them. Under 21s are classed as a Concession (same as a pensioner). It’s no too bad but most Uni students don’t finish their course until quite a bit after they are 21. While I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to give people a discount just because they have chosen to study you’d think tapping into the tens of thousands of Uni students in a more focused way might be a good long term bet for the club. Loads of people who study in Sheffield stay in the area long term so it isn’t just about getting them interested for the 3 or 4 years they are at Uni.

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.

 

 

 

 

if there giving away for free  all the seats that arnt sold why would anyone buy a season ticket if they can get in for free ......... doesnt sound like a money maker to me

Good prices but just have 3 tiers if you insist on having them. 
 

Glad to see membership deal continue too 




Nobody can ever (ever) convince me of the need for any tiers, phases or categories at all

It is a pretty outdated approach, be a great selling tool to say every match at Hillsborough is x amount, fans would get on board immediately.

i don’t think our fanbase will ever die out to a dramatic scale wednesday’s not just a club its a heritage always has been always will be same with the piggy’s theres no choice in which team you support unless your either a judas or someone who’s an outsider to sheffield 

 

the last few years have been rocky but you should already know its a bumpy ride its same for the pigs they were trapped in league 1 for 6yrs yet they still manage to keep decent numbers don’t get how mind you because all i’ve ever seen em do is long ball and fall over

end of day i couldn’t care where we are as a club we play good football (when we’re not ****housing about) and its the team i love and its the team many others love think a lot thats said is overdramatised heavily compared to the high’s and low’s we’ve had we’re all passionate about the club and i understand fans get upset but you just need to think how many other clubs than use are actually seeing proper success outside the top flight other than the main 6 we still rack amazing numbers for the league we’re in and i know a few that have renewed their season tickets for this season because of how its looking alone would love to see more fans at hillsborough but thats going to come with success and it seems like we’re going in the right direction footballs not always glory the only thing we can do is sit back and watch 

 

in regards to the ticket prices its inflation if you have faith in wednesday you’ll buy it simple as but for the less fortunate i wish them the best they need to value money over everything else so it is what it is

In the last 30 years our overall average attendance is 23,795. That’s from 9 seasons of PL football, 16 of Championship and 5 in Lg1.

 

Our average last season for LG1 football was 22,470. So our attendances aren’t dropping at all, they are round about what they’ve always been as an average.

 

We have a core 21k home fans but that realistically can drop by 4k if things are bad, regardless of ticket prices. Then it can also increase by 4k if we are challenging for promotion again regardless of ticket prices.

It's a real shame we can't have a stadium that's instantly expandable
Like something out of the future or summat

For most games it'd be a 25,000 seater but then when a big game comes up additional stands can be locked onto it to take it up to 50,000 (or however many we could sell)
That's the dream

We’ve stagnated while football has flourished though…..due to 20 years of abject failure no doubt.

 

Averages were at 21,125 in the first season of the Premier League, 30,000 by 1999, 35,000 by 2003 and circa 40k last season.

 

Crowds in the second tier averaged 7,688 in 1986 and it’s well over 20,000 now and League One averaged 8,724 in 2019; they were 5,000 25 years ago.

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.


I don’t get your point, if we go up then absolutely so should the ticket price to roughly £30 average.

 

Like it or not football is not the same as it was in the 80’s, and it’s still completely affordable imo to the average working person
