SEASON TICKET UPDATE

3 June 2014

The football club can now give supporters an update as to the number of Season Tickets sold so far ahead of the 2014/2015 campaign.

Last Saturday (31 May 2014) saw the end of the club's 'Early Bird' period of Season Ticket sales where tickets were available to supporters at their cheapest possible price.

After the close of business on Saturday, the club had sold exactly 12,039 tickets for next season. This figure breaks down into 9,464 Season Tickets bought by fans and 2,575 FlexiCards purchased.

The total for last season's Season Ticket sales came to just over 13,000 (approximately 10,000 Season Tickets and 3,000 FlexiCards).

Following the conclusion of the club's 'Early Bird' scheme, City's Director of Operations David Baldwin said: "Looking at the figures from this year and last year, we've seen roughly a 10% reduction on sales. This was something we had budgeted for though.

"The club was delighted with sales figures of 13,000 last season but we know that those numbers were achieved partly because of the euphoria around the club at the time after promotion and two Wembley trips.

"Because of this, we did anticipate some drop off this season. Last season was a solid and progressive campaign for the club but it obviously couldn't quite compare to the amazing campaign of the year before.

"To still have Season Ticket figures not too far off from last season's total, however, is a mighty achievement for the club.

"I think it goes to show that the vast majority of supporters can see that the club is making progress and they want to help us continue that.

"We must say a massive thank you to the fans for listening to the rallying call from us to become the club's 'twelfth man' next season.

"It is great that we can continue our summer planning now based on the Season Ticket and FlexiCard figures being around the number that we had anticipated.

"In terms of Season Tickets, FlexiCards and suite memberships, all three of those have hit the proposed budgets we looked to achieve.

"The Season Ticket figures we currently have now ahead of the season should also ensure we maintain the superb atmosphere we usually have around the Coral Windows Stadium.

"With a number of derbies ahead of us in League 1 next season and the expected level in match-day ticket sales, we feel the attendance figures will be roughly the same as they were on average last season." 


Although City's 'Early Bird' plan has now ended, supporters can still purchase their Season Ticket(s) for next season at only £299 for adults, £249.00 for concessions and £199.00 for juniors.

FlexiCards, however, are no longer for sale for the 2014/2015 campaign.

Baldwin continued: "The reason for FlexiCards coming off sale now is simply because of the increase in price for an adult Season Ticket up to £299.00.

"If you bought a FlexiCard now at £50.00 and then purchased a home match ticket for every one of our 23 home league games next season at the discounted rate of £10.00, that would mean a supporter could get in for a season at £280.00 compared to £299.00 for a Season Ticket.

"This unfortunately cannot be the case because it is important that we always keep Season Tickets as the most cost-effective way for a supporter to come and watch our home league games.

"Season Tickets still remain very much on sale to supporters though. They are simply now £100.00 dearer than they were during the 'Early Bird' sales period."
