Its really poorly thought-out.

So a ST has gone up from £280 2 seasons ago to £350 early bird - a 20% increase in 2 years in a time of austerity while in the same division :shock:

For all the amazing things they've done for the club the prices for under 18's is shockingly short-sighted.

Pretty much renders the under 18's deals pointless - the item is to get them interested and involved - not at those prices unfortunately


It doesnt help that people abuse it..... One paying adult takes his 3 under 18 adults to the game, who are all over 18..... No way of policing it on the turnstiles.

I've no gripe with the season ticket price. 4th division football is generally over priced. Is what it is.

However the u17 & young adult matchday ticket prices are an absolute outrage (for the umpteenth year running). Keep the prices low that extra 1,000 you got on freebies might come regularly. Charge those prices and you won't see any of them until the next freebie offer.

Agree with both, we’ve got to find a way to make it easier for the youth to come. Get them in and part of the community and they’ll pay a premium as an adult. Those systems will always be abused by some but hopefully they’ll either get found out or we get enough through to subsidise.

QLE membership for me again, I’ll miss 4/5 home games throughout the season so is not beneficial to get a season ticket.

It is actually a 25% increase which makes it even worse. Season ticket price is still competitive but match day tickets are too expensive, certainly for the u18's.

If the QLE membership isn't a similar deal to this season when they announce them, sadly for the first season in 20 years I possibly won't be bothering at all.

I refuse to pay £24.50 on the day for Division Four football, it's hideous when compared to other local offers (in higher divisions). My work means I sometimes don't know until a couple of days before a game if I can attend... so a season ticket is no good for me. Not asking for any sympathy here, just reality for me nowadays I'm afraid.

Also, as previously mentioned (though doesn't affect me personally, but is hugely important for the future of our club)... U18 tickets are scandalously priced. So much for encouraging the next generation.

Floating fans are now also completely priced out. Sad times indeed.

£24.50 is horrendous. Barely anybody is going to pay that, I wouldn't.

I'll be getting the QLE membership again. I hope it's the same price as last season.

With all the hard work the supporters groups put in to raise money for the club.... Don't they get asked what their thoughts are on pricing especially for the next generation of fans.

So looking at the prices briefly to me it looks like there are no increases to pre purchased matchday prices and the Family ticket. The Adult Season ticket if bought at the Early Bird prices have not increased and there will be the Quarry Lane Membership again next Season. I totally understand that Money is tight but were some fans hoping for Lower prices?

How are the floating fans priced out ??? I don’t think there going to see it’s gone up 50p and think naaahhh that’s too much now.

If they came last year like they did I reckon they will do again this year as long as the footys half decent.

I'm thinking of getting an adult and child ticket for next year. I know the ground but have only been to a few games a season due to location. Where is the best place for mixture of atmosphere and view do people think?

We all said the prices were too high last year and it didn't stop people going.

Pleased to get my ST at same rate via the early bird.

The family ticket and kids ST prices are still pretty good so the only complaint is that were missing a trick with the older m teenagers perhaps.

The one the day prices are very high but we need the money and if people pay it then it's a good move. If we have a bad season then it will backfire a little.

I don't think its fair to compare us to forest or other clubs. Every situation is different. Forest get millions in TV money and tens of thousands through the gate. They can afford to be more competitive.

Being honest it depends what you're exactly after and how much of an atmosphere you want.

I'm sure whoever you speak to have the best seats in the house, so can only share why I sit where I do in P block. Had a season ticket up there last two years and will be renewing again.

Go as a family, started to get back into attending regularly (with family in tow) so logical place to start was A block (old family block before it moved to quarry lane, we took advantage of the bogof offers that season) however its mainly uncovered when raining and windy (right decision to move it into QL) and felt like a morgue in terms of atmosphere - don't get me wrong it's great for families who want to just watch the game. I prefer getting involved with the atmosphere where possible.

Singing block is block Q so didn't want to go into that block with the family so went next door in P block. Upper tier gives a great view and is close enough to the away fans in terms of atmosphere. I'm sure everyone will have their own views why they sit where they do.

Thank you for taking the time to post. That's perfect and sounds exactly right for me too.
The last season tickets I bought was in 84! 23 quid or thereabouts (junior).

As i said earlier the pre match day prices have not risen. Yes the matchday prices paid on the day have and I get £24.50 & £25.50 is not affordable for many but it has only gone up 50p. In my opinion the big hike in prices were last year other than the fantastic Quarry Lane Membership offer which hopefully will be roughly the same this year. There were never going to be a reduction in prices. I do like the 18-21 age group Season ticket offer but this is the one I would have considered dropping slightly.

All you can do is choose what you can afford.
