Are you the same Fev fan who has emailed Hunslet to say its RACIAL discrimination and he's going to a solicitor? :)


Just for the record no it wasn't me. I understand the idea what hunslet want to achieve from this but just think they should and would of come up with a fairer option that's all.

Away season ticket holders got in cheaper than those home fans that come every week and dont buy a season ticket... Hunslet have done sod all wrong, they've kept the teams with a high away following at the same price, but those that dont travel well have been reduced to encourage them to come in bigger numbers.

How is that wrong?


I don't mind that their coming up with ideas to get more fans into games I applaud them for that I just think that they could of come up with a fairer option that's all.I mean no disrespect to hunslet but its not exactly a big away fixture for us and they might of turned a few of us away from the fixture.They should of charged the teams around them in the league more IMO.Also the Cumbrian teams have better away support in our league than say the teams outside our top 5 last season excluding the eagles of course

Lifes not fair Gaz. Your team is by far the biggest and second best in the league. Thats the price you pay.

York fans don't have a problem with it, I certainly don't know why Fev fans should.

Yes last season away fans got a discount. Take it you didn't come to our place last season then? Don't know to what extent the discount was though.


Yes turned up as soon as i could in the year to get to featherstone,i think it was new years day. However you will state this offer was for all fans. However before 2012 has there ever been a discount for one match which has been different for another game?

I find it ridiculous that the club has kept the prices the same and discounting certain games to entice fans and are being lambasted for it. I wonder if hunslet discounted the featherstone game people would find that a disgrace, as then we could be saying it is not worth paying the full amount to watch the leagues best team.

It's not the money I disagree with it's the discrimination. I am being penalised because I follow a particular club yet my pension is the same as anyone elses. If I am charged more because I follow my chosen club I will seek to have the matter readdressed through legal channels. Positive discrimination is not acceptable.

You wouldn't get far Vic , it's simply charging a different price for a different product ,not discrimination. We've done the same ourselves over recent seasons, only announced it as a one off offer prior to the game, rather than part of a pre season pricing structure.

Your not been penalised and your not been charged any more, ur paying excatly the same as you did last season.

If Hunslet want to reduce prices for any games next season from the standard £16 admission then it's the clubs prerogative to do so, it's no different from Fev dropping prices for a one off match next year is it? If you play Halifax one week and charge them £17 then the week after its Hunslet at home and you decide to drop prices by £5 to £12 to try and attract more floating fans who don't see it as a big attraction, that's not discrimination is it? Would the 400 Halifax fans who came to your place the week before call it discrimination? Very much doubt it, special match day offers take place week in week out at all clubs at all levels.

Don't be suprised if other clubs follow our lead on this, football have been doing it for over 10 years, and attendances have never been higher, so is this discrimination? No and does it work in football Yes? Maybe it's time we moved with the times.

No because we made it fair and charged every team the same price. No team was discriminated because they had good or bad away following.


So what can we deduce from this.

Fev will rip anybody off. They don't care who you are. :lol:

It's simple BH. You're club has moved in one direction that charges fans of diiferent visitors to Hunslet different prices. Some fans of rovers are offended by and and will choose not to visit Hunslet. Your club will then evaluate if that policy has been a good one and either continue with that policy or drop it. It bears no relevance what Fev charge as all teams will be tcharged the same. You will choose if you want to visit Rovers at that price.

It is about personal choices. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about.

I have a mate who is featherstone supporter who does not always go to the away games,i would of considered using one of the bring a mate for a tenner offer to entice him to come. However considering the reactions of some of the fans I would fear for his safety. He would never be allowed to set foot in Featherstone again.

i do not want to get into the rights and wrongs of what they charge for admision to Hunslet. the club is now run by Hunslet Independent Supporters Assiciation. This is the first season in charge.Quite sure that they will learn a lot from the venture. What interesting is that it is the fans who are running the club when nobody else would keep the club going. Is is possible that Hunslet would have gone the same way as Blackpool and Huyton if thier own fans had not stepped in to save the club
