Next Season's Ticket Prices
I thought some of you might be interested in a discussion I've just had about the price of season tickets.
This morning I had a call from someone at the club, who noticed that I have just renewed my boys' season tickets (2004/5) in Block J of the Main Stand at the special February rate of £100 for two. Originally, he tried to flog me an adult ticket, too, although being an employee of the club myself and being able to get free, I told him that I don't actually need one. Anyway, he then said that I could purchase my boys' 2005/6 tickets at the special rate of £85, although I've had to shell out left, right and centre lately and can't actually run to that at the present time. He then told me, however, that by this time next year the individual ticket price for the following season will probably go up from £50 to £75. If we get to the Premiership, he said, they would probably be set at £100. I can understand a significant ticket increase of some kind for the Premiership, but surely a rise of 50% is asking a bit much if we remain in the First Division?
