Usually comes up in January. However given the fabulous performances and real threat of relegation will he hold off until we hopefully start playing. If things don't change I can see us struggling to get anywhere near the sales of this year. Last night heard a few ST holders saying they can't take much more of the match experience turmoil that we are currently in.

They should definitely have a relegation price and a premier league price, but there is no chance of that happening

From parish point of veiw he will prob want for you to sighn up as early as poss he ain't silly he knows thousands will walk if we go down usuall stuff your seat will be sold if you don't committ bla bla bla spose ticket agency's can hedge there bets do monthly then if we go down in April of may say they don't want it now.

from what ive heard in the last week or so I think most will renew if we go down not stay up, due to bandwagon, tourists, poor atmosphere, divided ground, toxic environment and awful matchday experience

I have questioned whether I'll renew (s/t holder for over 20 years and regular fan for 40) which is probably still on the back of 2016 and Pardew's gradual erosion of all we stood for.

It's almost a 'be careful what you wish for scenario'. We all wanted promotion and now don't like it because the soul has been removed and replaced by light shows, 'street' match day announcers and tourists who watch the game through their phone in their half and half scarves.

Pardew's reign and the appointment of Sam have caused a civil war within the fan base and now the HF are on a sponsored silence.

Ultimately of course I'll renew, but one thing that does stick in the craw is the fact we need to renew now to get the best prices when our league status is far from certain. If we go down what do we get back for showing loyalty now ? Oh yeah, 4 more home games for our money.

Great, I'll cherish the thought of those 4 being Rotherham, Burton etc.

I don't get the angst against light shows. I certainly don't see that as any worse than introducing american style cheerleaders for example. As for tourists.. I assume this is only a problem for certain parts of the stadium. Where i sit there is certainly not an abundance of tourists. We aren't the loudest in the whitehorse being a combination of kids and oaps generally but the people i see tend to be the same faces and clearly loyal palace fans.

Can you moan about tourists then berate the likes of rotherham for not being worth as much as a premier league game? Seems a little inconsistent. FWIW i agree but i don't deny.. i bloody love the premier league and want to stay there.

The only positive of relegation would be the chance to get my youngest sons season ticket with us before he is too old to sit on my lap and for it not to matter.

With the club awash with money from the new TV deal I would very much hope there will be a freeze on prices once more.

One can argue that if we go down then there will be an extra 4 games included in the price so per game the cost per game will have been reduced anyway.

No doubt there will be a 28/02 deadline again for the best deals and for those who want to sit on the fence as to whether to renew depending on championship or Premier League tough shit! They can just wait and then pay accordingly when they know for use which division we will be in.

Given the home performance record for the past year, I'm not sure attending 4 extra home matches in the Championship is that attractive....it might be more like a punishment!

They will need to reduce the prices for individual matches in the Championship, or the attendances will plummet further. So the price of season tickets has to remain attractive enough to buy them, otherwise fans will simply buy for their favourite selection of home matches on a per match basis.

Performances and which division we're playing in have never been a factor though and I will be renewing when they go on sale.

You would almost think they have tried to move all the loyal fans out of the Directors Box area as even the £1,600 a season, twice the cost 2 seasons ago (£85 a game) is nothing compared to the £240 they charge for the seat when marketed as "Corporate Hospitality". Just add a meal and a programme. turning a normal seat into Corporate Hospitality is akin to Jesus turning water into wine.

When the going gets tough the tough get going and that sums up those so-called Palace fans that have to resort to abuse because they hate my positivity as all they want to do is throw in the towel,they are nothing more than deserters quitting in the heat of battle.

Renew their season tickets they probably never had one in the first place and prefer to mock those that will stay loyal to the club win,lose or draw through good and bad times.

This is the first time that I have ever seen such a split in the fanbase and it is nothing to be proud of as everybody needs to pull in the same direction like when there was almost no Palace to support and the fans rallied to show how much the club meant to the fans.

Some fans have very short memories and they may need jogging.

If you do not want to support Palace then do not mock those of us that do.

I get that youíre a fan, but you donít help yourself in the way you express your opinions. Just because somebody isnít able to attend every game, doesnít make you a better fan and your cheap throwaway comments donít help and that's why others have dished it out to you. Anybody who dares attempt to look at things constructively, is automatically deemed a negative fan by yourself. This approach to other fans has alienated yourself on here. You invariably come back to this post, and say Iím a negative poster and that I have a mild obsession with you;) and I have an alternate agenda. If you go through my posts, I donít think youíll find me slagging off the board, the players etc. We as fans have been incredibly patient over the last 15 months, and have seen nothing by way of results in the league.

Just a few of your examples
I have been to 78 away grounds watching Palace so stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

The Watford management have said something similar.

I'd like to think we're all 100% in support of making grounds wheelchair friendly, and I've been critical of our provision in the past.

But this seems an extraordinary equation...30 seats per wheelchair?!

Can anyone shed light on how they've come to this conclusion? Does it maybe include space for amenities such as toilets, lifts etc?

If it is like the wheelchair area at Bayern Munich then each wheelchair place will come with a designated helpers space just behind.
And what is good at Bayern is that the area is about a third of way back along side of pitch rather than stuck right at the front or back. So really are a part of the main crowd.

hdeagle

There have been problems for disabled Palace fans at some away games because the disabled area has been located near the home fans and not near the rest of the Palace fans.

Very poor planning.

I was thinking the same thing but then thought that on the basis there will be a grace period of when to get the best price until (say 28/02) a lot of people will leave it to the last minute for cash flow purposes/waiting for payday, so really it doesn't matter much when they are announced...

I paid £660 last year because I didn't elect to have the money added to spend in the bar. I can't see that option this time, so are we all having money added or is nobody being given that option?

It does seem as though they have been desperately waiting for a bit of good news, such as a win and some new signings after all the shite we have been subjected for too long. I wonder if we will get any wins for our money this time

If I knew the price would be the same for season two I would sign up tomorrow. But it's like me signing up to a new mortgage deal which is labelled as "fixed rate" yet not knowing I'm gonna pay in the final year.

Does the fixed rate say at the bottom of the page "the auto renewal can be cancelled at any point in the season with no further obligation"?

Sign up, get more loyalty points and then if you don't like the price next year cancel by emailing the box office. Don't see the issue myself

I paid £660 last year because I didn't elect to have the money added to spend in the bar. I can't see that option this time, so are we all having money added or is nobody being given that option?

It's a bit confusing.

there wasn't an option 2016/17 to buy with bar spend, was there?

Had a quick read through.

Positives

- can renew my sons monthly instalments online for the first time (from early march), better than filling in pages and pages of forms. Also the price for him hasn't changed

Being a collector saddo it is a little bit of a shame we don't get a new season ticket card, as I've got quite a collection of season tickets.

Cannot see anything about the programme voucher booklet, but I think it is usual that they don't say anything about this for a while yet.

Thought the terms and conditions of the main stand bars was a bit funny. Bit weird to set out t&c's that people can pay for drinks at the time of ordering! Couldn't see the same for the red and blue bar!

Oh and a bit weird about the extra 200 pts for auto renewal. Not available to those paying in instalments!

Is the condition about not sharing season tickets new? No idea how they could possibly enforce it particularly now you just scan your ticket in the turnstile.

At least putting the ticket on our existing cards means we won't have the usual problem of tickets being sent out at the last minute or not turning up.

I would recommend getting in touch early tomorrow (if necessary get there first thing in the morning) and see what other seats are currently available (in most stands other than the Arthur Wait, almost nothing)

If nothing you prefer is currently available, renew what you already have during February to get the best price, then go back on 3rd or 4th April, and you may then be able to move from your current location to a non-renewed seat which you prefer.

There are likely to be less season tickets available due to the removal of seats to allow Palace to comply with the new disability rules applying to football grounds.

The authorities are pressing for points deductions for clubs that do not meet these requirements.

Starting a season on -8 points will be a huge setback for any club and this is the penalty being bandied about for non-compliance with the new disability requirements.

As every year, you get the frozen price as an early bird. Cost goes up the later you renew - pretty standard really.

Nobody is forcing anybody to renew. If people don't want to pay £500+ to watch Palace, then they don't have to. Plus, we're not relegated yet and may not be.

I was comparing costs overall for the season. Palace season ticket make's it what? an average of £26 or thereabouts in The Holmesdale. An Exeter fan who doesn't go to all the games, say 16 out of the 23, and sits in their Newest Stand at £24 a pop is paying around just £100 less and for three games less.

Exeter's crowd is only around 40% season ticket holder when 4,000 home fans in attendance unlike Palace's is 75% when 22,500 are there so plenty of the former do pay on the day and don't get the discount like myself.

Right now the football is just not enjoyable. I'm also a little bit humpy about the feeling we're being treated as profit centres rather than fans.

Back on to our season ticket prices:

Why do the club think it's necessary to charge us full whack for something that won't even start for at least 5 months?

When Jordan started doing this, it was because he and the club had serious issues with cash flow. Do any other Premier League clubs ask for cash up front by the end of February for next year's season ticket? It's another way to piss off loyal fans.

Also, surely no one still believes the marketing spin that buying early is at a 'reduced rate'? The season ticket is not like a product sold in a supermarket that has an RRP. It's like those fools that buy TVs they don't need because Currys tell them it's 50% off - despite the fact that it's never been sold at the full price advertised.

If you buy early, you are buying at Price A. If you buy later, you're buying at Price A + interest.

Back on to our season ticket prices:

Why do the club think it's necessary to charge us full whack for something that won't even start for at least 5 months?

Eh? They get round the rules by having the TV at 'full price' for about a day or two, then suddenly it's 50% off or whatever. It's a well known practice, but people just love those big red signs that say 50% next to a new TV.

Out of interest which block(s) and row(s) are people in that are affected by the disabled increase?

I'm guessing Arthur Wait rows 36/37/38?

I'm trying to picture it but can't quite work it out. Are they the front rows of the 'back section' or the back rows of the 'front section' in the Arthur? I currently stand in row 47 of W and wondering what effect the disabled section will have up there (if any).

Yep.

The club aren't even seeming to hide their complete apathy towards us any more. It's a simple case that anyone who doesn't renew can just be replaced by a tourist buying tickets at £40 a pop.

If the Premier League was a closed shop and relegation didn't exist, it would make some business sense. But the threat of relegation should at least make them think that this strategy is terrible in the long-term. Whether it's this season, next or in 10 years time, we will eventually get relegated.

Once that happens, the club can say goodbye to the tourists. All of those local long-term Palace fans they've pissed off though, won't come back so quickly.

Not being funny, our ST prices haven't moved for 4 years in the Prem. They're very competitive when you look at the rest of the league. What exactly are people moaning about? I know when fans' teams lose a few games they think the world is going to end, but seriously the board aren't going to cut prices because of it. Especially with the threat of relegation, because in the league below we need the money to be a success. The board can never win.

Stop moaning and get it, I'm getting mine this month to get the full discount. After all if we go down (and that's looking more likely now) you get 4 more games and we might a have a chance of winning a few.

Football stats books show that after relegation from the Prem average gates tend to fall by:

Year 1 = 5k (some of the reduction is due to smaller away followings)
Years 2 & 3 = 3.5k over the 2 years (all home fans)
Year 4 = 1.5k (all home fans)
Then crowds remain at broadly same level (as I guess you are down to core support).

I checked and Palace average gates did drop by almost exactly the amounts quoted above when we were last relegated. So a 10k reduction can be expected over 4 years with crowds stabilizing eventually at 14 to 15k in Championship.

I expect that is to stop people just going on the waiting list just in case they decide they want one. £10 shows a bit of commitment that you actually want to be on there for definite.

I suspect most people likely to join waiting list are probably already attending a few games, so are likely in turn to be members given the purchasing policy these days, so perhaps a nice compromise would be to make it free for paid up members to go on waiting list.

Last year in Championship I recall our three STs totalled about £1,100, and now they're about £1,600.

I don't expect a price freeze, especially on promotion, but that's quite a rise in 4 years. Others talk about their price freezes as if this is universal across the stadium, but it hasn't been.

If we go down, I will more than likely enjoy my day out more. I'll be gutted to see Brighton pass us though - they are going to go up :(

As for the 14/15k crowd numbers quoted - that would have been my guess at our average gates in the Championship after a year or two. BUT... If the seeming lack of appreciation towards long term fans continues with Premier League football, I'd wager that 10k could well end up being a more stable figure.

It's always been this way, though. I've always renewed in the Spring to keep my seat for the following season. Doesn't matter if we're skint or not, they need to sort ST sales early so they can actually get them out in time. In your world you'd pay on 1st August, keep your seat (at risk of lost revenue to the club) and then moan when your ST isn't administered and with you for the first game of the season.

Bit in bold is daft, we're in our fourth season in the Premier League and your season ticket has never increased in price and you're still moaning? Just admit it's because the home form is shit. If we were on a winning run, you'd pay. Get over yourself.

cpfc4evandeva
09-02-2017, 11:24 AM
You're completely incorrect on both counts, so bravo on that.

1) Jordan introduced the paying early thing, and imposing financial penalties if you had the audacity to not want to pay for something so ludicrously early. 5 months in advance for the best price is mental.

2) The same cards are being used next year - no scrabbling around and hoping that the post arrives on time which is great. It also throws your bizarre theory of 'We must pay by early March, because less than 5 months lead time isn't adequate to send out up to 20,000 season tickets' out the window though.

The club's home form is a disgrace but I'm more concerned by how unenjoyable other aspects of the 'experience' is. Light shows, tourists that don't care about the club, mercenaries on the pitch who care even less than the tourists do.

Prince Phillip
09-02-2017, 12:07 PM
"Same cards next year?" What a dull, charmless penny-pinch by the Club that sounds like.

Despite the traditional postal-timescale hysteria each August it is actually quite nice to receive a letter from the club with your fresh ST card and various bits of Red & Blue bumf. Albeit a mass-mail, it's still a vital and much-anticipated line of communication between the Club and ST holder.

It just smacks of being taken completely for granted. You really do get a more personalised experience as an Away fan at Selhurst Park.

Depends how many have renewed , I should think numbers are down on previous years .
I can see the deadline passing with many forgetting to renew and then not bothering at the higher prices . It's arguable if you are getting a discount on the price of your season ticket or paying a higher Tariff on season tickets if you cannot afford to pay early . The full prices will look high for the championship if we are relegated .
