Can we draw a line under this subject now?
No, we can’t
DogsBollox is assuming that all of last season’s ST holders would buy one this year if the QL membership offer wasn’t available. I don’t believe this. Our core ST numbers have been around 1800 and the extras came last season from the Scottish ones effect and some good backing from JR making us favourites to get promoted. Even though JR has backed Flitcroft this season I don’t think it has the same “wow” factor, especially with lack of early signings, and we would have had reduced numbers of ST holders anyway.
I understand his point about the pre season cash flow, so making an adjustment for Stagsnet number of ST sold at 2409 pre-22/8/17 the cash generated would have been approx £725k compared with the estimated this season of £700k based on sales of 2000.
25k would only get you a decent youth team/ young professional player.
Please note that I have made the same assumptions as before about adult prices because I don’t have the breakdown of age group sales. If Martin , or anyone else, does have them I will re-calculate( and re-estimate this season)
My use of the early bird price is not 15% out- it is the ACTUAL price of the adult ticket sold. Similarly my use of £340 is not 3% out- it is the actual price of the adult ticket sold.
You really don't get what im trying to say at all. My point has absolutely nothing whatsoever with last years ST prices in any way shape or form or if the manager is a turd or useless.
The adult ST price for this season is £350.
Lets assume the attendance for home fans is a total of 2300 made up of 1800 core ST holders and 500 QLE members all being adult payers. If there was no QLE offer or at offer of any sort and they all attend the first game then income from 2300 adults would be 2300 x £350 = £805000.
But there is a QLE offer so the income is only (1800 x £350) + ( 500 x £20 ) = £631000
The difference on cash flow is £805000 - £631000 = £174000 before a ball is kicked.
Those 500 still have to pay for each game and also the club will increase its revenue from away support by being able to charge them full price. Assuming the 2300 from last season and 1800 plus 500 QLE this season, I suspect overall the financial difference won't be too great - yes the initial income isn't as high, but the club will get more in terms of regular income throughout the season as more fans pay per game and of course should we have a decent season more pay on the day fans will start to filter through.
