Season tickets - new applicants

by DavidM62 » 13 Jul 2006 22:10

Has anyone any ideas how the sale of these is going. I know there is less than a 1,000 going. I've not heard anything, so I fear the worst ...

Its being done on a points based system, so the more 'Royalty' points you have, the better chance of getting a ticket.

Not quite the made rush the football club were expecting. When you look at our season ticket prices compared to Watford and Sheffield United, it may be a slight indication as to why.

Might be to do with a lot of people realising there is virtually no chance of getting one so not bothering to apply. Thats my approach.

Would you compare house prices the same ?

Oooooh it is very cheap in Sheffield !

You charge the price that people can afford whilst not jeopordising filling the ground.

Demand in Reading is higher than Watford (I would have thought ?)

Desposible income is higher in Reading than Sheffield (I would have thought ?)

Watford is comparing apples with apples. Smaller capacity ground, less wealthy backer, still spending a reasonable amount of money. Considerably cheaper season tickets and maintaining very cheap child prices because they genuinely believe in encouraging young supporters, the lifeblood of tomorrow.

Oh, and rest assured, house prices considerably higher than Reading- I should know, I live within a few miles of Watford! You might also be incorrect in your assessment of relative demand too.

And I meant demand for tickets too! :roll: :roll:

So just to be clear: More expensive houses, equal or smaller capacity ground, equal demand for tickets, spending good money on signings and considerably cheaper season ticket and kids prices.

Check you bank account / credit card statements. I do belive the lucky ones will find themselves short of a few bob after the weekend but happy for it all the same!

Plus people living in Reading are not going to get a cheaper deal by buying a ST in Sheffield as travel costs will be a factor.

Got one as well - 152 points - well chuffed.

Check you 'loyalty' points via the online ticketing website - if you've got one you will see the entry for the Season ticket there. Should also see the dent in your bank account or credit card soon as well.
