Board mathematicians, advanced GCSE question 10:26 - May 8 with 1221 viewsgordon

Should the 11,748 have clubbed together to buy the remaining 252 season tickets, thus triggering the 10% reduction across all season tickets, if those 252 remaining tickets were then loaned out at £10 per game to casual fans?

Financially, yeah. Forgetting buying kids tickets etc, it would've worked out < £10 a head to get the remaining tickets. The club is in the sweet spot here, 12,000 would've represented the same revenue as 10,800, so anything in that corridor is positive. Hitting 12,000 would've cost the club about £300,000 I reckon. As someone said recently, it was a good incentive but i'm personally not bothered about a refund, I hope it's put to good use on a pressure washer and bucket of Mr Muscle.

No one knew we were 252 short until after the deadline anyway so academic. It's all peanuts in the scheme of things so really not worth worrying about. As others have said the tickets are cheaper, the offer was know (as was the deadline) and that's that.
I was thinking maybe Marcus could literally just extend the deadline a little at the early bird price (ie. without the extra discounts) but even that would put some ST holders backs up (rightly really) in that people have had plenty of time already.

Essentially the club are in the best position, If you take average cost of 350 a season ticket across the board, last year they sold 10200 which is 3.57 million revenue.

This year take an average of 15% less which is 300 a ticket and already sold 11,800 is 3.54 million, so essentially the same income but more bums on seats and more revenue from programs catering etc etc.

To give the 10% discount actually puts them worse off and I am sure the club will see that the current sales is an excellent achievement.

Personally i feel the club have handled this very well and credit to them.

Roll on next season..

PS anyone know what the pricing is for ifollow for a league one club?

What it proves is that ME's accountant got his (or her) projections spot on: the price and deadline were set to entice people, but to avoid the possibility of actually having to grant the reduction.

Have any of the previous offers been triggered? No.

Suspect you find the average is a lower than 350 due to the high number of kids, U19 and U23 tickets.

On the question of spending more at the club (at the bars etc). Are the stadium bars simply punted out on a franchise type single priced fixed deal and the 'stall holder' keeps all the revenue, or does the club fully run them and keep the profits?

I'd guess it's half and half.

The club contract the catering out to an external stadium catering 'specialist', but I wouldn't be surprised if that's for a fixed fee and ITFC keeps the profits.

Also more fans = more police required which the club has to pay for, so it's not all incremental revenue.

Either way, a decent number all said and done and with day trippers and away fans it should ensure our attendances are around the 15,000 mark minimum, perhaps could challenge 20,000 if we're flying and have a ticket promotion or 2 throughout the season.

That's an incredibly cynical viewpoint unless you're conceding that ME is able to hire extremely talented people.

I am not sure the evidence is on your side for that one.
