I think from a quick read that I’m one of the few who might lose out by these changes.I’m not 60 until September 2020,so I don’t think I’ll be eligible until 2021/22,by which time it goes up to 61,which I won’t be until September 21.
I think I might catch up by 2034 though.
I blame my bloody parents leaving it too late to conceive me.What were they thinking of?No consideration at all.

After a life time of forking out with little return, I was looking forward to the costs reducing a bit from 2024. Now have to wait until 2028 to catch up with the new schedule, just at the time when my little boy will be wanting a season ticket anyway!

Terrible decision by the club. I remember in league 1 we played Cambridge United. They were doing children, students and over 60s for £1. I took my sister who was a student and my step dad to the game for a massive price of £2. Ground was virtually full.

i dunno - most people over 60 seem to have more money than people under 40 these days.

Bare bones.

Everyone's living longer. I will be affected by these changes but I find it hard to argue with the rational. At least it is being phased.

As an OAP this doesn't affect me, so perhaps it is wrong of me to comment, but I would like to thank the club for leaving the age at sixty for as long as they have.

I would also commmend them for phasing the age increase as opposed to how it was implemented at Ipswich (and I think other clubs). They had a single increase that meant current ST holders with concessions aged between 60 & 63 would be charged the full rate for the following season. Unsurprisingly, ST's sold for that age range declined!

What a change from when I started work. The expectation was that retirement age would decrease (perhaps to fifty) rather than increase!

thought this might happen.... I'll miss out on 6 years of cheaper tics but in all honesty less than £30 for a seat in the R Block is not bad value (IMHO).
