I don't think that one has been answered or have I missed it?

Bearing in mind the fact that our ticketing software isn't capable of allowing season ticket holders to buy cup tickets online, I assume the answer will be no.

But I've just read that you MUST purchase your tickets BEFORE the day of the game in order to take advantage of the half price tickets. Is this correct?

Makes it completely pointless for fans who don't live in realistic midweek driving distance of Field Mill, and there are plenty of us. If that's the case, it's utterly ludicrous.

Time to pick and choose games then.


Just buy the ticket at the previous home game, no need to make a mid week visit to the Mill.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

Without the early bird offer my ST rises from £295 to £350 which is over a 15% rise in admission to the IGU. Its only a £10 hike on last seasons non early bird prices for the IGU but for me its an unacceptable increase no matter how you dress it up. Please reinstate the early bird offers for adult ST holders or I fear the sales will drop somewhat if not.

Closer to 20% than 15%. They made the mistake of no early bird a couple of years ago, and then reinstated it last year so why drop it again ?
Also, as I have already said, why are season tickets the same price throughout the ground when matchday tickets aren't ? It means that people in IGU are saving £46 more than those in IGL. Those of us who sit downstairs have to get to 2 more matches before we break even.

My rota varies and quite often I won't know if I can make a Saturday game until midweek.

Yet another barrier put in place by the club.

Buy your ticket over the phone and then pick it up on match day. Or the office will post it out for a small fee £1 I believe. You would still be saving.

Me and my brother will hopefully be doing the Quarry Lane membership thing, makes total sense to me after paying £300 last year for a season ticket, I'd have happily paid that again, but for this offer and price hike on season tickets. I cant make every game, 10 at most in a season.

Looking forward to purchasing my QLM as a season ticket holder for last 4 years best way forward for me with work and personal matters. I spent £460 last year on season tickets plus merchandise, programmes, food etc which the club will now lose. Looking forward to visiting a few new grounds instead with a few stags games in between. It's a shame..

Seems a lot of folk opting for the QLE membership! Hopefully it’ll be full and we can provide a good atmosphere in there.

I’d like to see the guys in Q Block move over to QLE, make it our “kop” and get a good atmosphere going. I usually sit IGL block C and I have to be honest, I can hardly ever hear Q block!

Just took 45 minutes to get through on the phone to apply for me and my lads Quarry Lane membership. Paid over the phone and they should be ready to collect in a couple of weeks the nice lady in the office said. She also said that when the fixtures come out next month you can start to buy tickets on line. Can see this becoming popular, we was season ticket holders in the west stand but there’s no way I can afford £440 to renew me and my lads season ticket this time. Also if there’s mid -week home games , I can’t make it due to shift work, so this scheme is ideal for us.

I'm just going to renew my IGU season ticket I think. To be fair I would say it is one of the best views of the pitch in the league. Not happy about the price increase but nothing I can do about it as I don't fancy sitting behind the goal again.

Steve Hymas, can you explain why there was no consultation with fans groups on the pricing of season tickets or deals please?

Perhaps some of the 'moaning' could have been avoided and better understanding of the reasoning behind the deals could have been achieved. Communication is the key.

Whereas it’s great the club are advertising it to us existing fans on platforms we already subscribe to, what are the club doing to get this out to the wider public who’ll need to know of this in advance?

Chad? Billboards? Somewhere in town? Leaflets?

Kinda makes it a tad pointless if it’s not advertised. Not having a go, just seems we lack common sense on these things at times.

You are correct IGU provides the best view.

However, after using my financial head, have renewed my QL membership.

Sounds as if the atmosphere will be good in there next season. Fingers crossed we will have a lot to be happy about.

You can but you’d need to do it through Zebra Finance and end up paying a load of interest. Better off banging it on a low interest credit card and pay it off that way.

Always said this, get a load of leaflets printed. There’s local companies who will leaflet drop wherever you like for £30 per 1,000 leaflets

No rush to commit either way as yet. 8th June deadline day. No incentive to buy an ST other than the view and priority tickets for big away games like Chesterfie... oh hang on a mo :hysteria:

Just been on an automated price check for one company. To deliver to every letterbox in postcodes NG17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22, a total of 115,641 letterboxes was quoted as £5,782:05. For me surprisingly cheap.

An average of just over 2 people per letterbox means reaching over 250,000 people, 2.3 pence each.

Of course the price of printing has to be added.
