Season tickets - Price increases

23 posts in this topic

I don't know how many clubs have announced season ticket prices for next year, they have up at headingley and i'd better start getting some extra jobs in. Considering inflation is at an all time low and banks are only paying less than 1% on savings i find it hard to swallow that my season ticket is going up by around 10% for next season. Yes it's the most exciting sport to follow, and yes the players earn every penny, but 10% extra is a lot to cough up in the current economic climate. How much do others pay on here for a comparable seat ? Mine is down the side of the pitch (north stand) in the upper tier and it's costing me

No it isn't. Inflation (RPI) is currently around 5%, which is higher than its been for some considerable time.

I stand corrected, but it's not 10% that's for sure. Many people have lost their jobs or are managing on reduced earnings so it's still taking the pi** as far as i'm concerned.

I heard a rumour that clubs are charging for season tickets based on the amount of tries scored in the previous season.

I can understand why Leeds' have gone up.

You can get a season ticket at Odsal next year for

Wires have gone up but they put some kind of spin on it like you are saving two extra games!

But I guess thats the price to pay for glamour and success. :rolleyes:

the problem is your looking at it the wrong way.. their prices will be run by their costs not by what people can afford.. if their costs have gone up then their prices have to go up.. that is what drives inflation, the costs to produce the product. for them the product is Rugby. So if energy prices are going up (they will have contracts for 1-2 years prices) plus all other costs then they have to up the price to be able to keep the same margin.

They also have to look at a "best guess" for the numbers they will sell and plan accordingly.. so they may be planning for less people being able to afford it so again it goes up a little more to compensate for this..

prices going up cause inflation as well as inflation causing prices to rise becuase of the above.

Thats not RL clubs fault though. That fault lies with the Tories for putting them on the dole.

RL is still a great value for money sport and compared to roundball we are cheap as chips.

There is also the forthcoming 2.5% VAT rise to take into account which will have been factored in to the prices for 2011.

The inflation figures came out today and have just been reduced from 3.2% to 3.1%.It also comes down to value for money and Clubs in old,run down grounds,with very basic facilities need to be careful what they charge for standing up,old toilets,poor food etc e.g. Wakefield,Cas and Bradford. Shows the obsolute importance of modern facilities.

Prices will reflect energy price rises too. Those who play on Friday evenings will have to pay more for the floodlights usage rather than is they played on Sunday afternoons.

It would certainly make better sense in the current climate for clubs to keep prices down so not to deter fans from turning up. Anything more than
