Looks like there could be a potential outrage at featherstone again. Saw this on the Barrow Forum

Hi All,

We have a Groupon offer for our games against yourselves (Dewsbury, Barrow and Whitehaven) this season, One ticket for £5, two for £8 or a family of 4 (2 adults 2 under 16s) for £10.

Obviously the offer is to try and get new people down to the game and not our own fans taking up the offer but I thought I’d make you all aware so you can to let you fans know as well.

Offer runs out at Midnight tonight and the link is:

Any other questions just ask,

Thanks,

Liam

I wonder whether they will now be boycotting Sheffield away, after they decided to promote a few games to get fans in, but did not include featherstone.

Great initiative, well done to Sheffield for trying something out of the box! Seems Hunslet again are leading the way :)

As a Fev fan, I'd have been more upset if you'd have put us in the lower categories.... Not all Fev fans disagree with how you've priced games... I was hoping Fev would adopt something similar.

Thanks Matt, Understand there is a lot of Featherstone supporters who back our price structure, just seems there is a majority who seem to object to whatever Hunslet do with their prices each season & bad mouth the club.

All hunslet are trying to do is get more fans in & pick up floating supporters, by reducing the prices for certain games. No different to when other clubs put offers for games, only difference is, Hunslet announce theirs in advance so everyone knows.

Barrow brought a lot of fans yesterday , which will have been good for the bar takings , but if the price had been £16 in would we have had the same amount traveling down , the thing with this is , you can't please every one.......the way forward for me with the Cat A,B,C games.......

When you go to the theatre you pay more for the better seats. You need binoculars at the SLS because you are so far away from the pitch, so I would expect to pay less! Most Rugby League fans prefer to stand behind the sticks, which you can't do at Hunslet. Sadly you can't stand behind the goals at the Railway End at Fev anymore, but you can still sit for free at the top end of the family stand near the try line. But wherever you go, you can always get close to the action. Now that you can't change ends at Fev, Batley is the best match-day experience, especially for those who like to stand and change ends at half-time, and I would be happy to pay extra for that!

You will only know if the idea works when you compare it to a game last season. As a Fev fan I say it's your club you do what you like I thinks it's a brave move and I hope it works for you and doesn't cost you at the end of the season time will tell .

It's a brave move reducing price? Yes it is.

Hunslet has lost over a 1000 supporters in the last 13 years. We need to be building the fan base back up. Everyone is getting older & if nothing is done about getting more hunslet supporters the club will eventually fold. If it gets a few extra people to come along to the reduced admission price who might not normally pay the full price, then they might get to come to some more games, and who knows they may then in a season or 2 become a season tickets holder.

Hunslet reducing the prices is not about picking on away supporters, we haven't targeted clubs and upped the price for them, we have reduced the price for certain games to entice people to come & support hunslet.

For hunslet to survive in the long term we need to improve on our own fan base, and it appears, we as a club are trying to do something about it.

So it's a brave move to REDUCE prices for 9 games this season yet Fev INCREASING there STANDING Admission by £1 to £17 isn't?

Sheffield are reducing prices for 5 games this season, Fev arnt one of them, so I take it no Fev fans will be visiting the Champions this season?

And to be clear and we've all said numerous times we have decreased prices for certain games to attract more floating support in South Leeds nothing more nothing less.

BH fev have increased there admission by £2 not £1 and I don't see how that's a brave move we haven't increased prices for a few years You can say seating price as well as that's free and by increasing it it will generate more money as long as we maintain our crowds. Last week was an excellent turn out and long may it continue so in week one the move hasn't cost us.

Just for the record I am not knocking Hunslets pricing policy I'm saying its your clubs decision i just hope it doesn't cost you financially by reducing it and more people not turning up to make up the reduction that's why I think it's a brave move

I personally hope it does work and good luck to you all and your club for the rest of the season

It's a bit early to tell. But given the 2832 folk that went through the turnstyles on Sunday, I would suggest the initiative is correct, wouldn't you?

At Fev, it's only £3 or so to watch the reserves.

Now that you've openly shown your true nature i.e. Rhinos Reserves, will you be lowering your prices accordingly?

Erm, think you need to expand your horizons a bit and take in some opinion from the wider world, even the York supporting LRL bloke who was mega enthusiastic about DR thinks this is stretching it a bit
