Championship Away Pricing

Post by Liviforever on Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:42 pm

Falkirk £18
Hibs £22
Hearts £23
Raith £17
Dumbarton £18
QOS £16
Sevco £21
Cowdenbeath £16
Alloa £16
Livingston £16


Some teams are doing Cat A & B pricing for Hearts, Hibs and The Rangers.

Ridiculous prices from Hibs, Hearts and The Rangers. Dumbarton and Falkirk are disappointing too, should be £16 across the board. Hope that the clubs ripping off the big 3 teams fans get what they deserve, low away crowds.

Dumbarton should be fucking ashamed of themselves. Won't be going unless it's a big game. The other diddy teams are ridiculously priced as well.

Ourselves, QOTS and Falkirk are best value for for what you're paying for. Rangers not bad relatively at £21.

Are we definitely confirmed at £16? Hadn't seen it yet. Was hoping we might go down to £15.

Was our gate price £16 last season aye? Pretty sure the receptionist told me that gate prices where going to be increased as season ticket prices came down, so wouldn't be surprised to see us charging 17/18 quid.

Supply and demand though and there has to be an equilibrium. We should charge Rangers and the Edinburgh clubs what they're charging us, if not a little bit more. You'll still get a big away support and lots of £. Would be just quite nice to see us pricing some of the bastards out, so a few less of their mutant fans show up at our place.

Disagree, we should keep the same price for all teams. Flynn bumped up the price against Hearts after 6,000 of them came the game before and it backfired on him, they were a few thousand less with the 20 odd quid charge.

I think we'd be rewarded with getting a full house if we don't get greedy, esp when the Edin clubs are just up the road.

Have all the clubs other than ourselves, Hibs, Hearts and Rangers seen an increase in ST sales?

I know Raith did, and Dumbarton ended up selling out and had to sell more. I'd imagine the other clubs would have sold more too.

You would think with those three teams being in the league and the likelihood of appearing on Sky Sports/BT Sports, there would be an increase in sponsorship interest and commercial interest for all the other clubs. And with the extra income, ticket prices would remain the same.

However, I can only see prices being increased due to extra policing, stewarding, catering demands and facilitating the fans and teams. But for six visits out of eighteen, it is still a rip-off as it is a rip-off for Hearts and Hibs to price adult tickets at an extortionate rate.

It would be interesting to hear from Charles Burnett if the club has seen an increase in sponsorship and commercial interest.

An earlier post on here says that we're charging £16 for adults, but I've just noticed on the OS that it's actually £18.

Has it always been 18,and I've never noticed?

Think it was £17 and may even have been reduced to £16 last season as it went down a pound, the PaTG was reduced and the ST price went up didn't it? That's what caused a hooha last season.

Well worth buying a ST then, save £8 a game if you got the early bird price.

I knew it was 16 last season LF, I just wasn't sure what the script was for the coming season. I remember reading that it was going to be 16 this season, and was surprised to see it was 18 - has that changed over the course of the summer?

I don't think it was ever confirmed it was going to be £16. Is £18 ncluding the games against the shitey part-time teams? Hardly any incentive for adults to PATG otherwise.
