Burton Ticket prices.

Recommended Posts

Why oh why have we missed an opportunity to pack the gate on Friday? £10 a ticket for an unattractive fixture with 100 plus away fans would surely make a difference and help roar us to second spot.

Tickets are say, £20 on average, and we've sold 16,500, more than half the capacity. Why would we sell them half the price and make less money??

It's NOT unattractive FFS !:grr: 

Would people rather see a "huge" club with every chance we'd get dicked , or play a team like Burton with EVERY possibility of a good win (maybe even 4 or 5) ?

You tell me !

16,500 sold for a game that could see us go 12 games unbeaten and an automatic spot isn’t very good? Or is that just me..

Burton playing a 550 formation has more of a 0 - 0 frustrating draw feeling. Hope I'm wrong.

One can make excuses as long as your arm for City not to turn up and pack the Gate. SL has delivered everything any owner coul dhave delivered and Brisoltians will still find excuses not to watch. That's why we have had 4 seasons in top flight football and will always be seen as a 'non-footballing' major City.

unfortunately only success breeds a large loyal following, sure people will turn up for a wembley final however tin pot it might be considered, a few games near the top will not be enough to tempt the fair-weather fans I'm afraid, maybe if we are still there in 4 months time, people have been disappointed too many times in the past to get there hopes up.  and you cant blame them for not getting exited about watching burton Albion.

make too many games £10 a game and then a season ticket become valueless and not worth getting

Although I do know that high PoTD prices do put many off, or at least pick and choose which games to go to, your point is certainly valid. 

Besides the income from 5,000 non season ticket holders at full price, is greater than having 10,000 non season ticket holders paying £10 a ticket.

Seems people will only come and watch one of the top teams in the Championship as long as they can pay National League ticket prices. 

Really?   Could it just be that some people genuinely can't afford to fork out to pay full price to watch every game (or buy a season ticket) and so have to choose which ones to attend - and Leeds at home next is far more attractive game to go to than the Burton game.

How much did the cheapest adult season ticket cost this season?

Just wondering how many £41 games you would have to attend to make it better value.

£41is the most expensive ticket in the ground, for the most expensive games and is for non members. You can't compare that to the cheapest season ticket!

i believe that a season ticket works  out at roughly £15 per game South stand. 

£17 per game Dolman & £20 per game West stand. 

You know, the same as, or cheaper, than people run national campaigns to get ticket prices at..!

That’s fair enough but we only had a game 4 weeks ago where non season ticket holders could get in for £10. 

Do this for every few games and season tickets will lost their value..

potd is far too high, 20 quid is enough, season tickets would still be cheaper but there would also be value for money

That's exactly the point though.

If people were to buy the cheapest season ticket rather than the occasional 'most expensive seat' they would get great value for money.

Yes but season tickets need to still be cheaper if the holder misses 2 or 3 games.

I think £25 is fair enough.

You are committing to 23 games when buy a season ticket not 20 games or 19 games but 23,

Don't be silly, you're always guaranteed to miss 2 or 3 due to being ill, work, other commitments. No one can guarantee making every game possible.

Cos the fans want cheap tickets for every game and that isnt right for the club or the season ticket holders? 

My SC works out at £19 per game but I have no issue with the club offering a cheap deal fo what is not an attractive fixture. That said if if that deal was available more frequently then many SC holders would think hard about renewing.

As the club often point out - a SC is the cheapest way to watch City.

But they are also shelling out in advance. It's only fair that the saving means that it's still cheaper, should they end up being unable to make a couple of games. 

I do think that our top priced ticket should be £30. 

It's far too simplistic, I know, but that might be a good thing, if the prices were...

South stand ST per match £14. Members POTD £17. General POTD £22

Dolman ST £17, members £20 POTD £25

Lansdown lower ST £20, members £23, POTD £28

Upper Lansdown ST £23, Member £26, POTD £31

I would also charge a fixed £25 for all away fans. It's not supporters fault if their team is deemed "big" or not. 

Scrap the match category rubbish. 

Also offer 5/10 game ticket bundles for those who want to commit to those at ST prices plus £2 per game. 

Keep it simple, make it realistically affordable and fill the place up.

Slarti made a very good point and still people are ignoring it!

Why is a game against Burton unattractive and a game against Leeds not? They are both Championship fixtures with the same amount of points available and the history of the opposition makes not a jot of difference.

If anything, Burton will be the more enjoyable fixture as we have a better chance of winning (on paper, not that games are won on paper of course).

It's simple - Leeds are a well known club with an impressive history. Even a non football fan has heard of Leeds.....but few will have heard of Burton Albion.

And a chance to go second! Yet some people think a fair rate is a tenner.

I haven't been to many games this season but I will be tomorrow because a) I'm available and b) to me it's a very attractive fixture. £23, a Friday night out, higher chance of a win than average, possibility to go 2nd, lovely.

Two reasons why Leeds may be perceived by some to be a more attractive game:

1) Proximity in the table (4th v 5th - has more of a 'top of the table' feel to it, even if it's far too early in the season to consider it a six-pointer)

2) Atmosphere - Leeds will pack the away end, and Burton won't. The atmosphere will probably therefore be better v Leeds

I would have said that this is the one possibility, but to be honest if we're winning it will be good anyway, and nobody loses a game and says "at least the atmosphere was great"!

I have. Primary reason I go to football. Sadly I don't say it enough as we are a 'only sing when we're winning' club like most teams in England.

I'm not sure why people are getting so heated over discussing whether or not Leeds is a more attractive fixture than Burton. Point is that some PoTD fans will genuinely not be able to afford to attend both games in quick succession, so will have to pick one or other to attend. I've suggested that the apparent lower expected attendance for the Burton game, may be because some are opting to fork out for Leeds rather than Burton.

I think PoTD prices are high, cheapest adult (without membership) is £28 add in say £5 for typical transport costs and that, for some, is a lot to spend for 2 homes games in a row. Having said that, if PoTD is too attractively priced the club loses the appeal of Season Tickets. The balance needs to be right, my gut feel is PoTD should be a bit, but not a lot, cheaper than it is now.

I agree. We have to play every team home and away. Burton are in the Championship on merit, they are a Championship side. We prepare for them as a team with that in mind, so we should also as fans.

I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford a S/T. I've been there (done that) in the past, struggled to afford two games  a week, I would go to the first one and hopefully let the other take care of itself  (i usually found the wherewithal :cool:).

He's not talking about himself though. He is talking about paying for his friend who is either unable to get a ST due to cost or lack of availability, or is a occasional football fan. 

If you can't afford two games or are just a football fan, then you pick the more interesting fixture based on quality of opposition, atmosphere, history of opposition and league position of opposition. 

If you are not City through and through or have a tight pocket then Burton is clearly the more unattractive of the two.

I do find it odd how they chose the Derby game for £10 yet Burton has no discount. Obviously it isn't fair to do half the games at cheap prices etc, but surely this game should have been £10, and Derby game full price. The club would have made more money over the 2 games doing it that way in my opinion.

Maybe they thought it would be easier to attract newcomers (and that's what they want, new people to target marketing at) for a game against Derby than Burton?
