Season Tickets include Anglo-Welch Cup Games

Post by Simmo » Wed Aug 30, 2006 2:37 pm

I see from the fixture list our £25 hike in Season Ticket prices (Crumbie Standing) has yielded ONE home game in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

The club have done us such a favour by including this meaningless competition that never previously sold out in our season ticket price.

Such value for money!

They're obviously out to make more profit this season than last (especially with the hike in Beer Prices too)

Most were complaining that it should be included in the season ticket. Now it is and we have complaints the other way!
Unfortunately season ticket prices have to go up, our economy has this pesky thing called inflation. Factor in inflation and the extra game and there is pretty much no difference in real terms.

At least the game should have a bigger attendance with the match included in the season ticket. There didn't seem to be a very good crowd in the Powergen home matches last season.

It maybe a rouse to get people to actually go to the mickey mouse cup games to try to prove to the sponsers that it actually is worth it. Because it is included in the price, more people will go rather than prefering to do some gardening.

My point exactly.....take a game that never sells out, force it on us on the premise that we might get 2 home games (thereby representing good value) and surprise surprise.....we only get one.

you were only ever to get one home game this season as you had 2 last year. it alternates, so it levels out.

Being played on a Saturday.......such boyish optimism misted up the old monocle.....wait till the BBC schedule planners start to think about it.....hold on a minute! We're not on the BBC schedule for live matches!! What an insult!!!

This one kicks off at 5.30. Does that sound like a good time for a match? Comments welcomed.
