Nobody commenting? Seems like a bit of a bargain that to me. Hopefully it gets plenty of people buying.

Do we know how many games it covers? how much gate price is? fixture list?

Had a quick look on the site the other day and couldn't see anything.

Halifax site seems to suggest 13 games, if £15 again thats £195 value with 10 game attendance break even.

I am almost certain to miss 2 games due to holidays, possibly more so doubt I will buy (3 years since I bought season ticket) not enough incentive anymore. 

As I said last year, added benefits would sell more season tickets, add free parking and/or 10% off merchandise and/or 10% off food & drinks.

For me it just needs something more to tempt me over the basic break even at 10 games.

I sort of accept what you say, but the club cannot give away the product if we expect to maintain and increase the levels of success we have already achieved. I suspect that our match day experience is cheaper than most. For a club who ended up as runners up last year, our parking is cheaper than most, our programmes are cheaper than any other I have seen on sale, and the prices we offer for products are reasonable to say the least.

 

I guess you have made the right decision for yourself in the past by not buying, which is fair enough, but I genuinely believe that we have to maintain income in order to maintain achievement.

Totally agree. Compared to other clubs, our matchday prices are low. That includes food and drink right up to parking and programmes. All extremely good value.

I can only comment on my own expenditure.
Maybe I am not typical but here is how it goes.

Parking, I park away from the ground unless I am late, pay maybe 3 times a season.

Merchandise, not bought anything for 3+ seasons.

Don't buy drinks.

Buy food maybe once in 3 games.

Stopped buying season ticket 3 years ago, stopped breaking my neck trying to get to every home game.

 

My opinion, the club has more to gain by giving some or all of the benefits I listed.

Parking they might loose £6-8/year but add £10 onto the season ticket, yes I am worse off but willing to pay more as I would prefer to park inground every game.

Merch, 10% might tempt me to buy, losing 10% has to be better than not making a sale at all.

Drinks doubt it would make any difference but if going with a friend/relative might take advantage of 10% off.

Same with food, might just buy a little more knowing I got a discount.

 

Benefit for club, £160 upfront instead of £150 spread out 10 games over the season + £6-8 parking.

Possible increased sales.

 

I know I am basing on my own spend and others will be different but its something I would try for 1 season.
