I see the season ticket prices for next year have snuck onto the main club website.  The prices are a joke.  The club has gone part time and been relegated, but I will only save £20 (based on early bird price) from last seasons prices.  Bit of a joke that.

I hope that those prices are still to be finalised.  £16 to sit and watch Conference North football is outrageous.  Fairly sure Hednesford is £12, Solihull Moors even less than that.

I'd also love to know why it's £2 to 'upgrade' to a seat unless you're under 4 - in which case it's £4.

The prices for the Lamb last season were the joint lowest in the Conference Premier and were average for the Conference North. Look at the big picture and you will find prices in the Conference North range from £15 at Stockport County (who have already sold !000 season tickets) to £9 at Solihull Moors.

The majority of clubs will be charging £12 for games as will Tamworth FC for the majority of the games. There are now no Lutons, Wrexham's so the 'A' games will be few and will be dictated by match day extra costs (ie Police, stewarding). The season ticket is a considerable saving on match day prices so for a supporter who attend all games it does save money when purchasing one especially on the early bird offer.

The anomaly of the mini in the seats will be looked at but if not just use a terrace entrance and pay for an upgrade to save the £2,

Thanks for responding Rod.  I appreciate that it's football in general that needs to look at some of these prices, but I think I'm right in saying that the Hednesford and Solihull prices include seats if desired, which is where the differences then arise.  I only picked those 2 clubs as they are fairly local to us.

Looking at the mini seats would be good - I didn't realise there was an option to pay for an upgrade...seems a bit strange.  Surely easier to just be £2 entry.

Anyway, the real point here I think is people's perception of the prices.  Those who are not regulars will look at charges of up to £16 and think that's extreme (I consider myself a regular and even I think it is!).  You can't please everyone - I appreciate that - but I think Solihull dropped their prices by 25% last season and their attendances went up by something like 3 times that.

  Don't forget T F C will be playing less home league games. £12 to £14 depending on what game you watch. Fans will begin to realise what a big drop to the North is, value for money is not what you get. The Moors have to give season ticket holders of other clubs half price admission, £15 at the moment to watch Burton, Nuneaton will keep there prices more or less the same as last season. You have to watch your pennies, value for money is what everyone wants, this is not ticking any of them boxes. NO GROUND IMPROVEMENTS NO FUTURE Mr Andrews please do what is best for the club, GO NOW.

It's all about money, not increasing attendances. If it was about attendances we'd have sacked belford several months ago

I get that but by following Solihull's logic and reducing ticket prices by 25% and increasing your gate by, say, 75% that would increase the money into the club.  Not only that but get more of the people who come every now and then through more regularly.  I can see attendances being closer to 600 this year.

They could lower the admission costs to £5 and people sadly still wouldn't turn up with the club in its current state...

The club could make it free admission and I would still not go. I was a regular for twenty years until member of staff ( who has now left ) decided to verbally abuse me because I dared criticise him!! The club refused to do anything even after I made a complaint and had many witnesses to back me up. The club could fold and disappear and it wouldn't bother me.

Think they're taking the proverbial! Go part time to save costs and obviously lower standard of football and possibly player on show but charge the same amount of money for the privilage! Prices should have been cut to try and entice the supporters back in!

They know how their internet page works when it comes to advertising match prices and season tickets. Shane it's not updated through out the season.

By comparison a terrace season ticket to Leicester tigers rugby, guarantee's premiership rugby and a certain amount of European rugby for a great price of just over £15 a game to see some of the best players in world rugby. Absolutely brilliant value for money.

Personally I have had a gut full of over paid prima donna footballers at all levels.

I will not renew my season ticket, TFC is dead on its arse.

TFC rest in peace.

Assuming what you say is accurate, that is a bad. I may not agree with most of what you say, but I would defend your right to say it

My thoughts on Get real 2

Far too much policing going on here. However the lack of posters old and new, should be telling everybody the state of the club. The jokey banter, the request for information, historical and financial details have disappeared. Hopefully, when the new season approaches, these missing posters will return.

It looks as if the club have thought long and hard about increasing the income flow at the club pay the same admission for watching part time players and so a cut in the playing budget. ClapClap

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

Another quote which the club should take on board. For example. New ground at Bonehill Road. Turning the ground at right angles to utilise the space. Buying a second hand stand
End result every time? Nowt.
Then, the club wonders why it gets the vituperative abuse. A lot of it personal. Admittedly. But if you dish it.......then expect it back tenfold.

looking again at the prices for the season tickets I think the club need to re-do their maths or be more honest. Last year for 1 adult 2 kids season ticket £250 this year £230. So £20 less for 2 fewer matches. Can't remember it being £10 a match last season if the price has been reduced accordingly for the fewer games! Never mind the fact there should be a lot less category A games.

.

Bonehill Road was scuppered by one of the firms already there who objected to it.

Turning the ground round would achieve next to bugger all for a lot of money, no extra space created, The Lamb is pretty enclosed on all four sides, the best use of any space we have would be to build a new clubhouse at the back of the Meadow Street end that can be used by home and away fans. (Even this is less urgent now as we shouldn't be segregated too often in Conf North).

You may have a point about the second stand, although with our current crowds is it really needed?

I would like to see some flexibility in terms of season tickets. I can't go to every game but if I could by a voucher for say 12 games I would be inclined to go for that, wonder if the club has ever considered that rather than just pushing season tickets?

To think we are playing 2 home games less this season, we are paying the same as last season for the season tickets. if you average the tickets at £10 per game the early bird last season was £160.00 this season is £140.00 so how is it cheaper taking in consideration 2 home games less and lower league and part time players also 9 games are being played Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Sunday.         

Its a bit disrespecting towards the supporters to think they cannot work out what's happening.

Guess it depends on your perception of value.  I bought a family season ticket on the early bird.  £300, for an adult and 2 children.  Works out to £14.28 per home match for all 3 of us (and that doesn't include the 2 free home friendlies included).   So personally, I think that good value.

£14 and few pence is not bad, does that include your partner, or is that for single parents.

Don't know why we don't do what other clubs do and have a pay monthly option via Direct debit. Make it affordable to everyone

I paid £220 on the early bird offer for a 1 adult 1 child terrace ticket working out at £10 per game for me AND my son - not including the 2 friendlies.  How is that not value for money or a saving?!
Must admit I was in 2 minds whether to have one this year, but do the maths and its a no brainer.

This has been done before and no doubt if some one spoke to the club they would try and help for sure.
