The discussion was around trying to get young people into the games.

The Theatres do kids week, we discount cat B & C games.

Prime time theatre seat prices are similar if not more than our Cat A games because demand for both is higher. It is about putting cost into perspective.

Perhaps to you and the dildo brothers it's about cost.

To me it should be about putting our fans first.

I can't comprehend why that doesn't matter to you.

Kids can see 2/3 of our games for £12.50 or £15, that's about encouraging young fans in.

I don't understand why you consider this unreasonable?

It's not.

Charging their parents £50 and up to see the other games is.

Quite simply because adjusted for inflation those are similar to the prices adults used to pay in 1985/86 .

And now that's what a "discounted" child's ticket costs , and you think it's reasonable ?

As an aside from all of this, here's an interesting little tidbit for those who like to compare us to Tottenham at every turn.

A little while back our friends in North London made the exciting announcement that they had sold out all season tickets at Wembley for next season.

A wonderful achievement I'm sure we can all agree.

In the last couple of days they've announced a new "season pass" giving members the chance to secure the same seat for every game at Wembley next season. That...sounds a lot like a season ticket to me.

I'm comparing similar experiences and yes I think £12.50 is reasonable

The theatre and football matches aren't similar experiences

How many people go to the theatre every 2 weeks for 9 months
I pay a high ticket price for a theatre ticket and I fully expect to be entertained

Going to the theatre you can make a judgement on purchasing tickets based on reviews in the media. With football you don't know what the f--k is going to happen once the whistle blows, all you have is faith, hope and expectation........

Phil, we're not talking about regulars the discussion was about getting kids to go to games as the future fans hence why I compared.

Going to a game you can have an idea as the form of both teams gives some indication.

Ultimately it's a personal opinion as to whether £12.50 for a kids ticket is reasonable, I think it is

You haven't though addressed the issue of why for certain matches they quadruple the price of a childs ticket , yet don't ramp up the adults ticket by anything like the amount .

Yeah I saw that as well..I think they had to keep the 40k sold separate ,as in they have guaranteed seat at new stadium.Where as this pass is just a one off for Wembley.Will be full of tourists there next season.Still must admit looking forward to our visit there .Will defo feel like a cup final,sure to feel a bit odd.

That's a different question, but supply and demand comes into it of course. We probably need to ask adult members how they would feel if they couldn't get tickets for the big games as the club are selling kids tickets at a fraction of the price?

True, but no-one is agreeing it with either. Yours and others focus is on the £50 ticket for a limited number of games, not the £12.50 or £15 tickets for the majority.

This was how it all started

mushy wrote:£50 for the kids per game?
If true, this is shocking, we should be ashamed, truly ashamed.
And please dont come back with the £99 season tickets, its passing trade and future generations that this club needs to attract.
No interest in the future at all, just the present.


I think the club has an interest in the future by charging the discounted rates for 2/3 of the games.

Why would they have any less of a chance of getting a ticket ? I thought members jumped the queue ahead of general sale ?
