Second time writing this post as I submitted and got an error!!!

Seeing that our prices are relatively pricey in terms of what other clubs charge, it got me wondering if the Bradford city approach is something that other clubs should follow.

Would this work at blues?

Bradford do have a very large stadium, and probably have around 25,000 home seats to fill. Roots hall probably has around 9000 home seats at a push.

Lets just say that we can offer 8000 home season tickets which leaves 1000 home ticket day sales.

Lets take the example as follows.

Current season card sales 3500 (estimated)

Adult £380 60%
Concessions £250 20%
Kids £50 20%

We are currently grossing £1,008,000

Let us assume for a moment the we could sell 8000 season cards at an offer price and splits:

Adult £199 60%
Concessions £99 20%
Kids £49 20%

We would gross £1,192,000


Also we have to take into account that with a minimum home support of 8k and an away support average of say 500 would see sales of food programmes etc net the club some extra funds.

The big worry by doing this is that if we only had a take up of 5-6k in season card sales then the club could essentially be at a loss.

A good option would be to price the 1000 on the day home tickets to £26 per match. That would mean that by game 9 of 23 on an individual game basis you would be out of pocket. This would make getting a season card a no brainer.


I personally feel the club do not do anywhere near enough for the fans of the club in terms of offers pricing and facilities.

Roots hall is rocking when its full and to have that for most of the season would be great.

What are your thoughts?
