Easter Monday may not be a 3 o’clock kick off ?

Usually only Good Friday games are moved from 3pm I think?

We are a small club measured by away support and punching above our weight on the pitch. Would really like to see 5000 at away games but we don't get many chances these days and 'fans' prefer the easy option of watching on screens which is now available for most games. Hillsborough could be a huge game for the club but I expect our support will not match that?

We had 4,600 up there in 2004 for a league game so it depends on the size of the game.

I actually disagree, I think if we’re either in the top 6 or a point or two outside we’ll take a good away following. The away attendance on Saturday wasn’t bad, considering the opposition and our form going into the match.

@BessexRED agree with your comments

If it was the Saturday I reckon we would take close to 3,000 considering where we are in the league, Hillsborough is a much friendlier experience than Bramall Lane

Exactly right

£36 is a ******* disgrace.  If we charge the same we should hang our heads in shame

Such a shame they wont do the £20 plenty for all away fans, across the divisions

£36 is scandalous for second tier football. There has to be cap on it in the future, as it simply cannot continue.

Thought I imagined Premier League clubs were going to put a £30 cap on all games? Not sure if I’ve made that up mind.

£36 is a disgrace but we shouldn’t throw stones on this....

Some tickets over the festive period for home fans for us this season have been the same price. My mate is a Brum fan and paid £34 for his away ticket this season (incl fees etc). 

somethjng needs to be done. Petrol and food included and you could get flights most places in Europe for the same price.

Not much consolation I know but Wednesday fans aren’t happy with the prices we charge either (and I’ve just paid £39 for a ticket for Leeds with the worst view in the league!)

Unfortunately our misguided Chairman thinks it would be a big advantage for us on the pitch if there were very few away fans at the game, hence his policy of wanting to price you out of it.

Personally I think not employing unheard of foreign managers without a clue about the game would be a better way of giving us an advantage on the pitch as he’s currently finding out the hard way 

Sorry

I'm doing Millwall and can only afford to do one more away game between now and the end of the season. Wednesday were going to be that game but i think Hull can have my money instead now. mind made up for me.

Fancied this trip but like I boycott Leeds for their prices I am not doing this one. Yes I know we charge similar and think this is disgraceful too. If nobody paid over £30 the club’s would soon back down.

I understand the sentiment of a cap for Championship games when the MPL (miss-match) Premier League caps fans prices at £25. 

Is a tenner extra worth paying for what 'could be' the most important league game of the season. 8000 found the cost of going to a carabo game in Manchester easy enough to afford

Thought they had gone ten quid better, £20’s Plenty? And some get free or subsidised travel. Stoke fans have continued to get free travel to away games after relegation. A Preston friend in the past has paid £8 difference to come to Bristol on her official coaches than we did to get to Preston too. These costs add up over the season. I think CATS to Boro was £42, not a cheap day out is it, but no doubt the win eases the pain, sometimes.

Weren’t the match tickets for that game quite reasonably priced, certainly not £36?

People will find the money to go to one off games, it's when every away day now costs well over 50 quid for one that things become more difficult

Agree about disgraceful prices but Leeds and Villa will both sell out their allocations.

It will cost a non ST holder or a non member £33 for Wigan at home on Saturday, so I don’t think we are in any position to moan at Wednesday. All ticket prices are too expensive, end of.

Exactly sign of the times it's all a buisness and unfortunately for the love of the game and our chosen teams we pay for it. You only have to look at the latest agent fees we paid over the last few years to see where it's all heading.

Premier league away prices are capped at £30, this has been extended to next season too. Arsenal (other clubs may also do this) further subsidise travelling fans by £4 so an away ticket is a maximum of £26. What's going on in the Championship is scandalous.

I was there, that winning run leading into the game and then the last minute conceded goal to lose 1 nil. Header from a corner I recall.

Long throw

 

As has been stated, stupid pricing by us, sadly we charge our own the same and even more on the sides.

Re price capping, it's great in theory but unlike the PL clubs we don't get the huge TV monies they do, at this level clubs rely on gate monies, I doubt it's even a drop in the ocean to most in the top flight. We then have to battle clubs with huge parachute payments so how do we get monies in to compete? we milk the fans.

Let's be honest though, if you're doing an away day then a few quid on the ticket, unless you're a principled bugger, matters little, you know you're stumping up north of a ton for this game if you use the train etc really without even setting off. How can we fly to Spain cheaper than it costs to get a Virgin train 180 miles, it's all bollocks.
