Ticket Promotion at Sheffield Wednesday Match
Tuesday, 7th Nov 2017 12:22

Town are holding a ticket promotion at the Sheffield Wednesday match at Portman Road on Wednesday 22nd November (KO 7.45pm).

Adult, senior citizens and under-23s prices for the game against the Owls, which is being shown live on Sky, are £15 in all areas with under-19s tickets £8 and under-12s £3.

Tickets are available from Planet Blue or online from ITFC Direct. Sheffield Wednesday are currently 11th in the Championship, a point and three places behind the Blues.

Meanwhile, around 1,000 staff from West Suffolk Hospital, Colchester Hospital, St Nicholas Hospice, St Elizabeth Hospice and EACH (Treehouse) will be the club's guests at the game.

In December he Blues' first-team players will be making their annual Christmas visits to those hospices and hospitals, as well as Ipswich Hospital with a similar number of their staff having been guests at the opening day match against Birmingham.

Frontline prison officers from HMP Highpoint, HMP Warren Hill and HMP Hollesley Bay have also been given tickets for the Wednesday game, the club previously having staged 999 Day at the Fulham match when staff from the fire brigade, police and ambulance services were guests.

Buy tickets, tell people about it, forward it, tweet it...let's get the attendance up, make some noise and support our goalscoring team.

Don't pay Sky money to pass onto Rupert Murdoch and the Premier League teams (including Norwich's parachute money).

These were initially offered to the prison service as per the first game of the season with the NHS, however the prison service are not permitted to accept hospitality. Seems they are desperate to get a crowd for the TV.

First win on tv for about 50 years.

I understand why they'd want to get attendance up for Sky game but not sure many parents would let their kids out so late in the week. Much better if there was an offer for a Saturday game of say kids for a quid to fill up Cobbold Stand.

Excellent. I'll be there.

Good to try and get at least a half full ground but once again this type of adhoc incentive begs the question of why pay for a season ticket?
Loyalty should work both ways!

the answer for me would be give everyone that bought a season ticket for this season, a free one each for next season, if they wished one. Then stick to this ticket promotion for rest of this dull season. Attendances might improve

Surprised the prisoners have not been invited as well lol !!!

Great comment Osborne. Lenny might go but Fletch wouldn’t as I recall he was a Spurs fan!

Great idea, but a Wednesday night in late November when game is on SKY. I’m a ST holder and unlikely to make it due to the change of date because of work commitments. Hope this boosts the gate significantly but I’m not overly convinced.

A win at Hull would probably do more for the attendance than any ticket promotion.

Want to increase the gate ?

Still undecided about MM but I like these efforts by the club to encourage people in. We are so used to doom and gloom and mediocrity that it takes more and more effort to be optomistic..BUT we are in touch of a play off place and we have a decent maybe..just maybe this could be our year ?!?!....COYB

' Please note this match has been chosen as our first Season Ticket
holder promotion match of the season. ' -on our offiicial website in relation to the Forest game.

Phil, I thought the club could only have 4 promo games per year?

Also, if you're going to the Wendy game take advantage of the 3 posh areas. Think in one a poster has put in the past you get a free programme, pie and drink.... Y X D :)

In particular, block D of the Cobbold is usually 52 quid. Seems people are opting for here first, and rightly so!

Appears the free ticket 1000 will be in blocks A + B Cobbold.

with it being live on sky & by sport showing champions league, town are desperate to avoid lowest league gate for 25 years !!!
I will be there as usual by the way with my season ticket in sir alf upper.

I travel over from Ireland to attend games. Let’s all support players and management and I look forward to travelling to Wembley!!!!!

Rather than ar*sing around with promotions, it would be nice if the club charged a reasonable price for ALL games. Still p*ssed off I had to pay £9 more for the Preston game than I would have for the same game a year or so ago. But we did win, which helped a bit.
