Winfall win or lose

Postby Wil0211 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 10:16 pm

Drawing Man City in the 4th round has already seen the club benefit significantly whether we beat Cardiff or not. Tuesday is looking like a bumper crowd close to sell out and many have already purchased tickets for the Cheltenham game as well to guarantee priority tickets for the Man City tie if we progress.
Just wondering how many tickets we would have sold for next Tuesday's replay if we had drawn Newport or Yeovil in the 4th round, I would estimate 4000 at the very most.
Really pleased for the Radford's as this game will bring in unexpected/unbudgeted revenue, even if we sell 7,500 tickets for Tuesday and an extra 500 for the Cheltenham game = £100k extra just from ticket sales, plus revenue from programmes, food, drink etc. Take away match days fees and % to Cardiff should still clear a tidy sum.

I think It shows again how JR puts the success and support of the club first before his own financial gain

Under the circumstances I think a lot of chairman would have looked to charge a lot more than what we have set the prices at for the Cardiff game,

Season ticket holders at £3 for under 16 and £10 for adults has to be the cheapest 3rd round FA cup tickets anywhere..

Do not think he had any say in the pricing of the tickets, we have to charge same as the game at Cardiff.

Yep I think you're right.
JR would've been daft to set the price any lower than £20 if he had the choice.

Think the cup run up to now including tv revenue, prize money and gate receipts is between £200k-£250k (inc cardiff replay).

Is this fact Waddostag? One of my mates is a Wednesday fan and they paid £19 up at Carlisle whilst the replay at Hillsborough is £10. I do think that £12 is too cheap and if we are comparing games featuring above average league 2 sides at home (Carlisle £19 / Mansfield £12) against Championship sides of similar stature then i think we are extremely fortunate to be paying just £12 whoever made the decision.

The price of tickets had to be agreed before the first match for the replay. They can be different, but they must be agreed before first match.
We might win against Accrington next time, if we ever play them again.

FA Cup Rules say:

"Immediately after the draw is known, the Club playing at home shall decide on the prices of admission, subject to a minimum price of £10.00 for all spectators other than concessions. The away Club’s spectators can only be charged more than the home Club’s spectators if mutually agreed by both Clubs."

I can't see anything about replays but it makes sense to agree the prices before the first game to avoid later arguments.

The officials don't come cheap. You have to sell around 150 tickets just to pay for them. Referee, £375.00; Assistant Referees, £375.00 each; Fourth Official, £320.00.

I hope the police don't go mad and classify it as a high risk game. That could add another £10 -15k to the bill.

It is because the one call ground has not got VAR technology.

I think so. the other game is Chelsea v Norwich on BBC. Both grounds have VAR and it's the tellies latest toy. We are the most attractive replay for places difference between home & away teams which seemed to be the criteria over the weekend.

VAR won't be problem when it's Yeovil v Manure for one of the games. Don't think there's VAR at Huish Park ;)
