Ouch! What do you get for that?

Haven't seen these advertised anywhere?

I know you get lunch that's about it, I guess there must be more to it.

I will find out and post, I am intrigued now.

Best seats in the house, probably worth £40 so lunch will set you back £40. If you are well of £80x23 (around 1750) is a lot but some posh golf clubs are close to that these days.

I don't think any ticket for Championship football should ever be valued at £40, regardless of the view! I take your point about golf clubs though. I'd just want more than lunch and a ticket for £79.

You buy them for 'Entertainment' purposes for when buttering up clients...then get your Accountant to take it off your tax bill.

Only if you have a dodgy accountant - client entertaining isn't tax deductible.

Of course, you could get a tax deduction for taking a client to see the gas, as even the miserable taxman couldn't class that shite as entertainment.

Shouldn't the Club be out high profile promoting these seats rather than people having to 'research'.

I think the club have their target purchasers and are confident of selling all of the tickets, very few of the ST holders previously in the Williams will get a seat anywhere near where they sat before.

What ever anyone thinks of the Corporate end of the available tickets, if what I've heard is right and that all boxes etc are sold, then match day revenue will rise massively. The concourse is busy early on match days and all the bars etc look very busy. The difference in income from a few years ago to what it will be next year will be amazing. Add conference and special occasions and the rest of the of field activities things look to be going well on that side. Now if we could somehow sell enough tickets to open the top tier ........

Quickly noticing the divide being made between the high society and the average supporter since the building of the new stadium. Never really been too noticeable before.

wont be long before the prawn sandwiches are out unless that's already begun.

Corporate entertainment and the revenue it brings was always one of the key drivers behind the stadium development, and will enable the club to compete on and off the pitch with those who already have such facilities.

There is still plenty of room for our hardcore fanbase so I don't see the issue.

I think we need to get another phrase to replace "prawn sandwich" to refer to the corporate group. Tesco sell prawn sandwiches for £1.80 but bacon and egg sandwiches for £2.20. I like the bacon and egg sandwiches but I'm not rolling in money and I'm not buying a VIP seat. "Suits" is another phrase often used, which is strange,  as casual clothes can be more expensive than a suit.  Perhaps we can call those with money the "Enfields" after Harry Enfield's loadsamoney sketch

Let's not start beating SL with that stick - he is trying to catch up with the rest of football, because we have been left behind with all this stuff and we have nil, zero, chance of competing at this level without it.

SL/City didn't start the "prawn sandwich" football that we see today. It's not their doing. They have to operate in the football world as it is, not how we might wish it still was or remember from our youth.

If there are some people prepared to pay 3 or 4 times, and more, to watch the same game as you and me, and that helps us avoid the humiliation of last summer's transfer fiasco, and helps us compete in this league, then so be it.

There is nothing to stop the rest of us singing and creating an atmosphere, if we want to. Regardless of what people are eating at half time.

Basicly every club in the world has a corporate section. Even the mighty Borussia Dortmund. How do you think they can charge 120 pounds for a Season Ticket? Making football cheaper for all would be nice, but the more realistic aim is to make football accessible to all. If that means a few fat cats pay top dollar to enable someone on minimum wage to also go then that is a good thing.

 

The socialist model of charge the richer more to allow the poorer among us to go is better than the communist model of lowering the prices for all.

I could be wrong and you may of well Sat in the premier seating previously but maybe these seats are being offered to those who used to be in the premier seating ?

No I didn't sit in the premier seating, but alongside the directors box, which was above the premier seating.

I don't think there were 800 Premier seats anyway, so that has been increased in the new Williams.

It looks like the ordinary punters will be in the Williams wings, especially if the upper tier is closed except for 'big' games, which, if true, is a mistake in my view.

It does seem harsh if you can't get a similar seat to what you had in the previous Williams.

 Maybe they could open a block in the upper just above the boxes  purely for Williams previous ST . But this is most likely wishful thinking and city wouldn't find this money well spent on extra stewards. 

The whole rebuild process is difficult to get perfect . I was in the ateyo but moved to SS this season(due to Moving away fans ).  I have a similar view if not a little better . I was Sat dead on mid way through the ateyo so has acres of legroom and next to the vorm so could exit quick or nip to the toliet without causing restricting anyone view or people having to move.
