I've got a membership anyway but £17 seems very dear for Championship Rugby. Discuss.

I don't care to be honest I would pay 30 quid to watch us. At least we know the gate money goes back into the club.

Its not going to help the people we are after to come back and people will start to pick the games they watch £17.00 to watch the poorer sides will be to much for some people.

Time to return to charging a lower fee to get in, then an additional fee to sit perhaps?

At least we all were well informed of the price going up and given the choice of getting a cheap membership but as already stated the quality players come at a price .

The main problem is how we attract supporters with the increased price ? Well I am sure they will be many offers like there has been the last few seasons for the games against poorer opposition

Yeah I did and still will until every team pays the same at hunslet. Like I said I won't be attending that game just because of the principle of it.

The Hunslet issue is a different kettle of fish. At least, we are not being discriminatory.

Exactly. I hope therefore that we don't run any offers such as the "Ladies Day" offer of free entry for all females, or any other discriminatory offers ourselves this season. ;)

Yeah true bob and I would rather buy something from the Fev club shop and give them the 16 quid than attend a game i dont agree with. So that's what I will do when the away gear comes in.Also I'm sure their partnered club Leeds will give them the gate money they lose😉

I was meaning in terms of attracting new fans and adding to our support base ahead of the push for SL. The die hards will always go.

I just find it a strange move to put it up £2 especially when we might rely on the casuals abit more this year, as i assume memberships havent gone too well with the club not mentioning the numbers sold in the slightest for the last couple of months. They were wanting 2000 werent they? I would be surprised if we match last years 1000 which is very disappointing.

That seems a novel idea. Charge more for some teams and less for others. Would it work ? I bet no club would every be brave enough to try such a startling innovation. Wouldn't the bigger clubs fans be annoyed. It's deja vu n'est ce pas ? :D.

Rovers fans would never complain if say another club charged them more than fans of other clubs would they ? :D

As I see it if we want to be the best sign quality players we must contribute towards that our rival clubs at the top charged more than us last year that's the way things are Regarding whether it will bring fans back or not we will have to see but on the flip side if we charged £14 bought average players and didn't get to finals would that bring the fans back if we are lucky enough to get in the price will jump its a fact. It's one good reason to buy a season ticket (if you have the money available to do it ) and I didn't see anyone say anything over the last few seasons when it didn't go up We are getting better the club is now run professional the stadium is been upgraded it costs
