Im not sure the age discrimination stands in this instance. You could by the family package as it states nothing about age, and the club is not duty bound to give discounts to OAPs, you are buying an entertainment product and it is goodwill thing on behalf of sports clubs to give concessions same with some other things like cinema etc, but not sure currys would give you a tv cheap because your are older? Having said that Steve, Im sure the club can help you, it must be a nightmare covering all the permutations that could arise. Not sure why you would not just check with the club first though, before playing the discrimination card! Just my point of view like.

I have e-mailed Craig Poskitt and await his reply, but it's not just about my membership requirements, it's about attracting new members, and I would have thought that grandparents bringing their grandkids needs to be encouraged more and more. Currys don't need to sell 2,500 TV's by 2014, and they don't have their competitors 8 miles along the A645 selling them 20% cheaper!

Lets remember that as a club we are moving forward and with a bit of luck this membership is another step in the right direction Unfortunately it will not cover every situation and it look likes Steves is one of them I do think there could be different family tickets and yes I never thought about it at the membership launch as didn't anyone else that was there because Craig did ask if people had any comments on on the membership and everyone seemed positive about it

I would go with

Family pass 1 2 adults. 2 children

Family pass 2. 1 adult. 2 children

Family pass. 3. 2 adults 1 child

Family pass. 4. 1 adult. 1 child

Any additional child family pass price + £ 30

Just a thought this may attract more members and this is what we need

I wasn't at the membership launch JT due to family illness, but I suspect the only people there were fully committed supporters who would would automatically renew whatever the prices, but we have to think about the uncommitted supporters and the former fans we are trying to attract back. This year's deals don't seem as good as last year's and I fear it will be difficult to attract new members, especially after they have seen Wakefield's prices! Maybe some will be hoping for the mini-season ticket offer from last year where you could pay for just a few games, I think it was 6?

This years deals are a lot better than last and there is options for each individual I don't know how they compare to others but if we want to push to be the best we need to keep in line with the other top clubs in the league

I think they have confused the issue a bit with the Gold Silver Bronze thing all we need is a full or half season ticket end of. I can see what the club is trying to do but all its done for me is to put me off, so I will pass this year and pay as I go.

I'd applaud the innovation. B)

It's all about selling what the customer wants to buy. If any of the products prove unpopular, presumably they won't be offered next year.

I wish I could answer that one jt its just left me a bit cold, I hope the club sell loads. I will buy my grandsons like I always do. I don't get to all the games so its better if I pay for each match I think.

I am buying one this year and don't normally bother because like most people I usually miss 2 games for holidays but the price of £159 before Oct 31st means I can miss 4 games and it's still worth unlike previous seasons when missing just 2games meant you lost out.

Just waiting for pay day tomorrow then I can order a "brick" whilst I am in the club shop .
