Season ticket price comparison

40 posts in this topic

So buy a junior season ticket funkmaster flex? only 25 pound plus he can take his kids to away games free then??

I do agree though, 9 quid for kids to sit is abit over the top and they isnt enough kids coming to rams games which they should be, as we dont want to lose dewsbury kids to SL clubs which may happen if they go watch another club and become hooked.. Once you know your team ,theys no changing!

Any body who takes there kids to the matches must be mad not to get a childs season ticket even if they are not going to go to away matches. As for the away team bringing the kids if they do they will probably be season ticket holders aswell. As you say the price is a bit steep for children but options are there to pay a lot less

I aqree, but £9 quid to sit down is hardly going to persuade the causual fan to come along and bring the kids. If its £2 for the kids in the south stand why not £4/ £5 to sit down?

As others have said we should be doing absolutely everyhting we can to get the young uns in. Afterall how many times a year are either stand likely to be full........?

Your season tickets are very cheap, Im suprised you can stay in business with those prices to be honest. As for Kids prices to sit down, In my experience kids never sit still anyway and prefer to stand, and if they get tired sit down on the terracing. So do not see an issue with the kids price for sitting down.

About time we considered the old 'uns more I reckon - flaming kids! Can't park at the supermarket because there are so many mother & baby, mother & toddler, mother & fat little idle sod spaces. Can't attract 'em to matches unless they have a free drum to bang. Need their own dedicated stand to sit down in.

Why, in my day you stood on the Long Stand throughout winter wi' no coat on watching 'me wrestle in't mud and you were grateful!

Long stand ? you were lucky. We had to sit on a telegraph pole outside t'ground etc etc. Careful about having a go at the mother and rug rat spaces in carparks BSJ, you'll have one or two having a blast at disabled parking spaces - usually occupied by overweight but otherwise healthy individuals affecting a dodgy limp - not that I would like. :lol:

15 quid in at Batley on Boxing Day. Still I suppose you have to pay for luxury.

It's a shared gate so presumably Mark Sawyer agreed to it.

Maybe but my comments refer to those complaining about the cost of entry to Rams Stadium. I anticipate that £15 will be the regular price at the mount this next season.

Our nearest club Batley - £3 for children to sit

Our nearest Superleague club (Giants) Free for kids to sit.

Dewsbury Rams - £9 for a child to sit

Go to Batley on matchday and there are plenty of kids about, go to Huddersfield and you can barely move for them - Come to Dewsbury and they are largely absent apart from those with the dieharders.

Personally, If it was a Sunday morning and I was looking for something to do with my three kids that afternoon, and rugby sprang to mind - Tell me exactly why I should pay £27 for them at Dewsbury when Batley is less than a tenner and Huddersfield is free.

Imagine if you was a travelling fan and skint, and had to weigh up Dewsbury away or Batley for instance or just a casual fan looking for some sport. The fact is you don't have to be a genius to realise Dewsbury would probably not be your top choice. Like I said, we have this every year and there is no need for it again. The kids season ticket is an excellent move by the club, but charging a child £9 to sit down, and increasing their standing gate by £7 when an adult is increased by just £2 - is, in my opinion a bad move by the club and really, considering the local competition, a bit daft.

To be a touch nit picking if they stood at Huddersfield they would be ejected.

Just to remind people that the less we charge for season tickets / admission, the less money Glen Morrison has for players.

And Huddersfield have a very wealthy benefactor and a lot more income.
