Bradford City prices


Recommended Posts

Adults £150. consessions £75 that is fantastic value and I hope the club look at doing something like this.

 

I think even at £200 to £250 it would be good value. But would the club sell the extra 1000 tickets needed to make the same amount as they would have made selling 3000 at £330

 

The stoke city system isnt a bad idea either, where you make a deposit, and if the club gets x amount of pledges, season tickets are this price, if club gets y amount of pledges, tickets are this price

from what i understand the club made less than 1mill on the season tickets, and many fans as we all know still do cite cost as an exuse for not coming.

 

£300 * 3000 adult season ticket holders is £900k

 

£250 * 3750 adult season ticket holders is £937k

 

£250 * 4000 adult season ticket holders is over £1m

 

Plus with lower ticket prices the likelyhood is secondary sales such as shirts, pies. programmes etc would rise. Hence lowering prices may not necessarily reduce income.

 

However, if we lowered season ticket prices to £250, would we sell over 3750 adult tickets?

Considering we struggled to fill our capacity of approx 13000 in the Premier league and didn't fill it when we were in the Championship I think the days of anything other than a half full BP have gone. The fans didn't fill it in the games for £2 quid, nor did we fill it for the game against Blackpool in the play-offs.

 

The "non-converted" will not come back just because the price is £150, all this will achieve is that the hardcore that have bought STs over the last 10 years or so will pay less and the club will get less money.

I defo thing the stoke pledge system would work, as in something along the line sof you put a £150 deposit down, then the price is set depending on the number of deposits you have got so far.

 

3000 adult season tickets at £300 would make 900k

 

Hence after your cut off date.....

 

3000 deposits or less for adult season tickets means prices stay at 300

 

If the club hits 3500 deposits for adult season tickets, prices drop to 275 (which would make 962k)

 

If the club hits 4000 deposits for adult season tickets, price of a season ticket drops to 250 (which would again make roughly £1m)

 

Then zt least this way the club would not be losing anything.

didnt Bradford say if 10,000 people sign up, then tickets are £150. If not then they are normal price. As a result they got 12,000 i think.

 

Yep, they got 12302 in total, breaking down approx

 

9000 adults at £138 a ticket

 

1000 under 16's at £69 a ticket

 

2000 under 11's (free)

 

This year prices going up slightly to £150 an adult ticket, £75 for an under 16's ticket.

The Stoke system didn't actually work like that. All they did was get people to 'pledge' that they would buy a season ticket, set the prices accordingly, and then just kept their fingers crossed that they all actually went ahead and bought one....................which they didn't! Mainly because the discounts they were promised in return were nothing to write home about. They've since scapped the idea.

 

What you're talking aout is far more refined and nothing similar has been done at any other club.

until the product on the pitch is improved you wont get people back,thats just how it is. a very vicious circle.

 

be much better off doing a live game thing on latics world,home games a certain price and away games a certain price,that way people wouldnt mind watching mind numbing games from the comfort of there armchair,then play the games at bp behind closed doors,so nobody can abuse the players and shez cant flick the v's at anyone,everybodys a winner then.

Bradford find price of loyalty

 

If the accountants measure the dash for cash in the Barclays Premier League in astronomical amounts, fans at the bottom of football's pile know precisely the cost of their love of the game: £3.25, in some cases. That is the price for a match ticket being offered by Bradford City, who are proving that enterprise and a little thought for the people who pack the stands can go a long way to reviving a club.

 

Bradford have been in freefall since being relegated from the top flight seven years ago, enduring two spells in administration along the way. Another bout of relegation last season to Coca-Cola League Two should have meant tumbleweed blowing through empty stands.

 

But if Julian Rhodes, the chairman, has been unable to turn the tide on the field, he has been able to keep bums on seats. By offering season tickets at £6 a match, the average gate was more than 13,000 during Bradford's drop into the fourth tier. Now season tickets are on sale for next season at only £150 and the deal includes a buy one, get one free option: of 12,000 season-ticket holders, 9,000 are adults, and they are being offered one more ticket if they purchase by the middle of June. Each person's admission per match works out at an astonishing £3.25.

 

Last season's knock-down prices helped to turn losses of £500,000 a year into a small profit. Now Rhodes believes that he can aim for gates of 20,000 in a bit of business that is delighting supporters' groups and opening doors to more young fans
