Ticket Promotion at Rotherham Game
Tuesday, 18th Dec 2018 09:11

Town have launched a ticket promotion for the Rotherham match on Saturday 12th January with adult seats £12 (KO 3pm).

Tickets for senior citizens aged 65-plus and under-23s will be £8 with under-19s and under-12s charged £3. Anyone who has already bought seats will be refunded the difference.

The game could be a key fixture in the Blues’ ongoing battle against the drop with manager Paul Lambert believing the fans have a big role to play.

“The supporters have been incredible,” he told the club site.“I have not known support like we’ve had at a club when you are at the bottom of the table. It’s not normal.

“The noise from the North Stand on Saturday against Wigan was relentless and we need that. We need that every game over the rest of the season. We have to get supporters coming in here. The fans have got a massive part to play.”

Town have also announced a Kids For a Quid offer at Saturday’s home game against fifth-placed Sheffield United.

Great idea, build the crowd, this is a massive game.
Hopefully we will be really on the up by then.

This is the first time (in a couple of decades) I've been a season ticket holder and it seems there's more Special Offers this season than ever before?

Kind of feel like I ordered by Xmas Turkey way in advance and they're cheaper the closer to the big day....

TractorCam added 09:50 - Dec 18
ruds - There are definitely more promotions this year, because Evans is clearly realising we need the fans more than ever.

Surely you don't have an issue with this? If you do then cancel your season ticket and get each game individually and see if it works out cheaper for you!

ruds I'm sure it still works out cheaper for you in the long-run. We need to fill the stadium.

More fans and a better atmosphere (alike the Norwich game) is DEFFO what we want (and need), I was just curious that was all.

I would pay another £200 for a season for a better grade of player/ success and a happier Saturday night!

Ruds of course you are correct. I am all for selling cheap tickets and filling the stadium but season ticket holders must be given a refund per promotional game. The occasional fan paying £12 doesn't keep the club running, season ticket holders do, without them the club closes tomorrow.

You can’t have your cake and eat it
This will pull in people who want to go and maybe can afford this
New and come back fans we need right now !!

Great idea for such a massive game! I am a season ticket holder and couldn’t care less if I lose out to be honest. If filling the ground and getting behind the team keeps us in the league then who cares what I lose. COYB!

Hopefully Evans will see that if he lowers the stupidly high matchday prices we might get bigger gates. The support is there we just need to give people an incentive to go at the moment, why would families pay £50+ to watch the football we are serving up this season so close to Christmas when money is tight.

Don’t like ME but well done for getting something right for a change.

Allowed four promo games a season.

Rotherham / WBA / QPR ( from memory ) and Sheff Utd ( if kids for £1 counts ) would be our lot.....?

Not sure quite the issue here!

Ruds, I've given you an explanation and you click an arrow.

Stop being a wet melt, really not difficult.

£10 a game and Championship football next season and we get 25,000 a home game.
£15 a game and Championship football next season and we get 20,000 a home game.
£20 a game and Championship football next season and we get 15,000 a home game.

I don't want to think about number and Division One football next season but with the right formula we can fill the season - that's what we all want right?

I don't think the Corporates realise that what most "average" fans want is not a matchday "experience" other than what actually happens with team on the pitch. I can't imagine anything worse (well, ok the dentist) than sitting in some "executive box" eating my prawn sandwiches, away from the noise and action; and I certainly wouldn't want to pay extra for it. Or am I just old-fashioned?

Swn98 added 20:01 - Dec 18
You either pledge your support for the whole season or buy tickets on a match by match basis i've had a season ticket for 45 years and i know what my decision is whatever the outcome of this season.

Taricco_Fan added 21:08 - Dec 18
We need to fill the stadium, end of. This is the most pivotal season in club's history. We need more fans through the door, particularly kids and those who cannot afford to go very often. It's a cliche but a good PR atmosphere could be our 12th man as every home game has now become a must-win affair.

I understand the complaints of some season ticket holders but if you genuinely think being a matchday fan with the odd promotion thrown in is cheaper than a ST then be my guest to try it.

@TWTD PHIL. You, Gav or Anybody seen this yet? well worth a watch.. lets hope its not us. There are similarities. Although, the atmosphere was really toxic at a club with 8 managers in 5 years and the problems a lot more deep rooted than our own..

Seeing the atmosphere after the Wigan game we dont appear like a club who is bottom of the league..

Can't get the ticket site to work

Westy added 11:58 - Dec 19
Like most Season Ticket holders I budget to miss two or three matches in the Season, but have already missed more than that this season for various reasons. With these offers the Club keep making I am now losing out. It would have been more viable for me not to have bothered. I'm all for getting in a large crowd and nurturing another generation of supporters, but if the Club are going to do this can they not at least reward Season Ticket holders with a few points on the card that can be redeemed in the Club shop ?

timspencero added 13:13 - Dec 19
Currie10 is that true? Only allowed 4 promotional games per season? That’s v useful insight I hadn’t realised. TWTD - if true you could certainly help by adding that to the articles concerning promotions.

What a massive shame only 4? I hoped that they could run many more of these this season, but if it’s only four then it is what it is - and season ticket holders - you just have to consider that. I imagine it still works out better.

Season ticket holders are such an important lifeblood and must be respected. This all comes down to communication, and the club sometimes struggles with it or at least, has in the past.

If it were the case that there were more than 4 promo games allowed in a season, and the club decided to run more, season ticket holders will almost universally understand why and I’d expect the club to offer an incentive - discounted renewal, or priority discounted Prem tickets, player events - something to compensate and respect them. It just needs to be communicated up front and effectively, and I’m sure barely any season ticket holder would mind. Because: big picture, we all want a full stadium week in week out and a thriving football club.

Like it or not, Norwich achieve this as Lambert knows. Lambert wants us to improve and he’s doing so many small but important things to bring back the magic!
