I've only just seen the pay on the day prices. Gutted at that, I'm starting a new job in November which means I won't make all the home games anymore but £24 is ridiculous.

Was going off prices on this thread mate, double checked and it's an over exaggeration, my bad!

I might treat myself to a season ticket anyway and just hope I can make 15+ home games and don't lose out too much.

I know that I benefit from the Over 60's discount, but my IGU season ticket worked out at less than £12 a match last season.

Both Notts County and Chesterfield have cheaper match day prices for their younger supporters, their future adult fan base. There will be more younger away stags fans than at home matchs.

SFU have repeatedly made the point about looking after the kids and families by having cheap junior and family tickets, including as recently as 25th April.

If you're 'wised up' you won't bud. On the days you can't make it give ticket to a mate and say 'if you give me X amount of £s then you can borrow my ST for that game'.

So, we just start building the fan base up again, and the these match day prices come along and the rug is pulled from under the supporters again.
Last time I looked, we were in the same division as last year. Everything is just promises at the moment, but we are expected to pay as if we have already made the jump of two divisions. These rises will set the club back months, attractive football or not, this is a POOR area of the country, and families around here cannot, and will not keep absorbing increases on this scale.
If this has not been apparent to the club, especially when the two for one offers have been on, then it never will be.
I am in full time employment, in a reasonably paid job, but even for me, I will not be attending all games next season. £24 for this league is obscene, and after 45 years of attending every match, I will pick and choose my games.
Will anybody at the club take notice. Will they care? I suspect that as long as the hospitality suites are full, everything will be rosy.
Good luck Steve, with your exciting new team and a three quarters empty ground!

A few people are stating that £24 is "too much" or "obscene" for the pay as you go fan.

In the interest of balance you can "pay as you go" for £20 a game.

I don't think any increases on prices is acceptable.

I wish the EFL took action and made £20 the limit for a ticket.

I said when JR 'backed Evo 100%' that it'd be interesting to see whether the fan base'd do the same, to give a tiny bit extra to help. Seems as though the fans want a better class of footy for 2/6d but are quite ok to let someone else foot the bill.

They want to see better quality on the field, but begrudge paying a bit extra for it. I think this idea that JR should foot the entire promotion project is wrong. I echo what already has been said, there are ways to attend cheaper but some just look at the dearest price and moan.

So are we also saying we want better, more successful football and it's acceptable that the bill for that will be picked up, in a large part, by price rises for the youth? Except it won't because they just won't come and then it'll be grumbles about the town not backing the club and JR.

I despair and I'm now completely convinced that there is no plan or desire to attract the next generation.

Good season ticket prices though.

Absolutely rediculous price.

How many games should you attend before its worthwhile buying a ST? I don't want to pay that. 24 for L2 is disgusting.

QUESTION: Has anyone got a list of pay on the gate prices at other lge2 clubs for the next season sitting in the best seats. i.e equivalent to the IGU?

I agree it seems steep at £24 but what is the going rate in this division?

Where else is the money going to come from to fund this promotion push? If we're gonna have a top 6 budget then gate prices are gonna have to be a couple quid extra. I guess Zander Diamond and our incoming 20 goal a season striker's wages won't be cheap!

But you can get it cheaper. Why pay on the day? If someone intends to go to the majority of games then surely purchasing a season ticket is the answer at less than £13 per game. If someone is only going to a handful of games you can get a cheaper ticket by purchasing in advance. The club cannot charge the away fans more on the day than the home fans. Given that there will be some games next season with a large away following I can understand why the club are charging £24.

The other thing to consider is the "special offers " that the club are allowed to do usually around Christmas when money is a little tighter. I know it upset some of those who purchase a season ticket year on year. Personally I think it is a good thing, but can only be done on a limited basis. The idea is of course is to try and attract more permanent fans. I'm not convinced it did. But I'm sure JR will do something similar this season.

I accept we all have a budget. I can only spend so much of my budget on football. I chose not to go to away games because I can't afford it. I also can't afford to go for a couple of pints before the game. You cut your cloth accordingly. But I accept if I am going to watch a team with better than average league 2 players rather than the average league 2 players it is going to cost me a little bit more

But surely the point that is being made is if the prices are attractive together with better performances on the pitch, then the numbers will INCREASE - thus contributing to "the 100% Backing of SE" pledged by the Radfords.

Did people honestly think that the Evans war chest was going to come solely out of JRs pocket. And people grumbling about paying £24. Sit in the IGL or QL for £22. Better still decide the day before and pay £20. Even better get a membership card for QL and pay £17. After 8 games the card fee of £35 has been paid. Simples

I think there are two separate issues here. Not many regulars would be surprised or even begrudge a price increase on ST or adult premium tickets by way of our contribution to Evo's warchest. I fully expected my ST to go up and wasn't bothered in the least by the prospect, so getting the early bird was a very pleasant and unnecessary surprise (but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth).

BUT the walk up price for U18 is stupidly expensive, it will deter U18s from coming, and has been said over & over this is the demographic that will secure the long term future of the club. The aspect I find really puzzling about the clubs attitude, is that unaccompanied U18s paying on the gate must make up a tiny part of the clubs fan base at the moment (simply because the club actively discourages them from coming), so the club really would have had nothing to lose & everything to gain by making U18 walk up prices as cheap as possible.

The £7 with a QLE membership is a great price, but it's requiring a teenager (remember how your brain worked as a teenager) to cough up money up front for a membership & commit to going to all the games to recoup their upfront costs. The teenage brain just doesn't work like that.

The membership card cost for U18 is £15 so they only need to go to 4 games to make it pay. The downside is expecting them to remember to get their tickets in advance. They also have until the start of the season to save the £15. However I agree with those who think we are charging the kids too much. Why not make it cheaper for the u11s when accompanied by an adult so those parents with more than one child can take them into the family section at an affordable price.

If I purchase my IGU senior ST by the end of May, I will pay the same as last year (£270)

I consider that to be excellent value.

Excellent post Bros, people on here moan for the sake of moaning. They always state the worst case scenario regarding pay on the day. I travel up from the south, print my tickets online and never pay on the day. Very few people make a spontaneous decision on a Saturday to attend a match in the busy lives we all lead.

I do, of course, agree with you and Doomy over junior pricing, however, I do think as a parent of a 15 year old, if I wanted them to get into the ground cheaper I think I would buy them the QLE membership and would remind them to get their ticket before the game. £7 then represents outstanding value. I do think it should be £7 anyway, but if it was the club would lose income from away support as they would have to charge the same. The membership scheme is a way around this. It is impossible for the club to please everyone, but in the QLE scheme they have given the opportunity for cheap admission without affecting income gained from, say, 300 U18 Notts Co supporters etc, etc.
