Hopefully there will be a reasonable take up of the offer, it’ll be interesting to hear the results of whether those who attended the Fylde game buy any.

But we don't have enough regular fans either. Better to get people in the habit now - they may even buy a full season ticket for next year if they like it

Shame we don't have a midweek home game during half-term week. These games were always good for promoting family tickets

In terms of promoting anything, we desperately need to start playing more attractive football. We're nine points clear of the drop zone, so with players returning from injury and additions to the squad there's no excuse for boring the arse off everyone, including probably the players themselves. Just give the lads a bit more headway to take a gamble and make a mistake - in the opposition half of the field. Perhaps Hayes will show the way again

Yeah, really hope Hayes can make the difference like last time he was here. It’s incredibly frustrating when our wide players turn back because that’s when the ball all too often ends up back with the defence. We know what works and has worked, it’s down to the manager to ensure it happens. That’s the frustration.

Though we are at home during half term - Boreham Wood on the 20th Half term is different in some places admittedly.

Ah, that's a late half-term (didn't check the dates)

A promotion for the match is possible then, no doubt based around "Bring the kids, it's Boreham time"

I know this has been shared by myself in the past but is something like this worth looking into especially if season ticket prices increase.

I 100% agree James. This is the way forward. Most people pay for utility bills, phone bills, insurance etc this way.

It would bring a regular known fixed income into the club every month even in the summer period when there is little other income as well as helping fans to budget.

However, like insurance for example, it may have to include a small extra monthly charge, for example if next season the price of an adult season card in the main stand increased to £350.

This could be paid for by a one off payment of £350 or alternatively 12 equal monthly payment of £30, paying a total of £360.

It is important to the club to encourage some of the fans to pay for the season card up front in one payment as this provides needed cash between the seasons when other sources of income are low.

I'm pretty sure the pricing was added after piece was first published. Comments on here might have prompted the edit - but the club don't read the forum! Anyway a good initiative and I hope it brings in a few more pounds and people.

Might it affect the price charged for visiting fans if mainmstand prices were reduced for particular games even if it is by a special offer of some sort.

Was this discussed at the fan meetings earlier in the year and was it a suggestion proposed to the board? Could have different levels of package for each stand. Top tier could include voucher for a programme and food and drink at each game plus a voucher for the club shop 2/3/4 times a year.

I emailed the club to ask about this and have received a reply, paraphrased below.

They have looked at it. Fleetwood, who also have a small number of fans, do it on the same ticketing platform as RAFC use, it hasn’t helped them increase attendances or revenue.

There are problems with supporters opting in and out for different months and the monitoring of what they are entitled to.

There is a significant cost that needs to be passed onto fans.

From the club’s position, the subscription model removes the cash flow boost needed during the summer months where the club has costs but no revenues.

We have to respect too that we are a non-league club with a non-league infrastructure.

The management of monthly direct debits, who pays, who cancels and all changes is a full time job. Organisations with this model such as electricity providers, gyms have dedicated customer services operatives handle the call.

The theory is a good but it would change the clubs whole operating model to monthly payment rather than the traditional season card model employed at 91 other league clubs.

There used to be a system that had something called cash, it was like sheets of paper and round things called coins that you could use to buy anything if you had enough of them....I well remember just turning up to watch a game and paying with this cash stuff, all very easy and as a kid, my dad used to pay and extra amount for us to stand in the Paddock he paid something called a sixpence and I paid with something called a threepenny bit.... no codes to remember, no problems with your card not being recognised, no difficulty at all really .... why do we always try to make simple stuff complicated?

I don’t disagree with that at all.

But we embraced in 2020 “the best practice in sport to Rochdale fans” to go cashless and in the middle of a global pandemic where no one entered the ground!

https://www.rochdaleafc.co.uk/news/2020/april/futureticketingrelease/

Most grounds I’ve been to this season have let me in on presentation of cash.

So why in the three years since crowds returned to grounds haven’t we introduced cash turnstiles?

The tickets can be given to a turnstile operator to issue/scan allowing fans to go straight into the ground without queuing at the ticket office or the Trust desk to hand over cash.

It’s either still the “best practice”, or we’ve simply not reacted well enough and blame the past. Just for a change.

It would be interesting to know much this scanning system cost courtesy of Bottomley.
Halifax away was an example of how cash turnstiles can work in this day and age.

As per a previous post, it's such a shame no-one realised this at the club since the current board took over
