Don’t plan that trip to the local just yet. Sky news reporting that Rochdale is in the top 4 areas in England for coronavirus cases due to a spike in infections (numbers infected per 100000 people). Top 4- Leicester (already locked down), Bradford, Barnsley & us. Govt actively considering local lockdown measures unless there’s an improvement. Aaargh!!!
Moving in a bit from the Newcastle tickets thread, just a few thoughts on next season’s season ticket & pay on the day prices. My suggestions on S/T prices would be- Sandy £230 (£10 a game) kids £80. POTD £15 adults £8 kids. Pearl st £275 (around £12 a game) kids £100. POTD £18 adults £10 kids. Main stand £320 (around £14 a game) kids £120. POTD £22 adults £12 kids. Away fans £22 adults £12 kids. If the club can emphasise the savings rather than their current “take it or leave it” stance then I think they could sell this, ive always been a bit sceptical about early bird deals but that’s just my opinion. Needless to say I’m not in favour of categorising games. The reason I’ve made POTD prices cheaper than they are currently is that the season ticket uptake has been excellent the last 2-3 seasons but POTD seems to have been poor, obviously partly due to on field performance but also match day prices putting would be fans off.
Just a thought to try to drum up a bit of support after the Utd game. How about the club does a special offer for 1 home game for fans that went to OT? Non season ticket holders could get into a home game for say £10 adults & £5 kids/OAP’s, Pay on the gate if they show their tkt stub from the United game. We play Wycombe on sat 28 sept or could do it for the Accrington or MK Dons game in Oct, games that traditionally don’t have many away fans. It would be a thank you for supporters & could hopefully bring in a few fans who wouldn’t have gone to these fixtures. Any thoughts?
