Cut-price half season tickets

Cut-price half season tickets

From tomorrow onwards Pompey half price season tickets will be available.

These will be available at a 'cut price' cost from just £175 per ticket, which equates to a little over £14.50 per game...

This, added to the other initiatives that CSI have brought in since their arrival, will 'hopefully' see the dwindling crowds rise more?

As it stands Pompey are currently a few thousand below the nopower average attendance of 17,000-odd, so clearly we need to raise the attendances.

That said, despite it physically being less, 12,000 (or so) per home game at around £25-£30 per ticket will not, all in all, be too much difference to last seasons £14,000 (or so) at around £20 per ticket, so in-terms of 'breaking even' not much difference...

Although I know I would like to see higher crowds and see Fratton rocking again!

Quite clearly though PFC do need, and want, more fans through the turnstiles so with all the offers that have been served up and this latest reduced cost they cannot do much more really.

Of course winning games will help fans return but the style of play - therefore value for money factor - plays a part as well so if Appy can get us playing the 'attractive football' that he says he wants to it will help, although the costs will always be a big factor so making it more affordable to the football fan will mean more turn up more regularly I am sure, especially if we are winning!

As far as season ticket holders, and I am one of them, go I have little doubt that a number will feel a little 'hard done by' by this latest reduction given that we had to shell out some £450 (was it) way back?

I am not exactly 'one of them' that does feel that hard done by though, a little 'put out' at times perhaps mind...

But when all is said and done at the end of the day this was an amount that I (we) were willing to pay so I (we) cannot complain too much as no one 'forced' me (us) - apart from pulling on those heartstrings that often control our purse strings too! - to get one at such a price did they?

However I would be stunned that based on the CSI initiatives since they came in if we did not see a decent reduction is season ticket prices next season.

And indeed the club have already announced that a deal for next season will be in place, with one also kicking in now: 'we haven't forgotten about our most faithful supporters.

'When the 2012/13 season tickets go on sale in the new year, there will be an exclusive period for full season ticket holders who will be able to renew at a discounted rate compared to half season ticket holders. More details will be announced nearer the time.

'In addition, there is a new exclusive offer to all full season ticket holders who can now bring under-17s along to four selected Championship games for just £2 each!

'The £2 matches are against Hull (Saturday, February 4, kick-off 3pm), Middlesbrough (Saturday, March 3, 3pm), Burnley (Saturday, March 31, 3pm) and Crystal Palace (Tuesday, April 17, kick-off 7.45pm).

'There are no restrictions on the number of £2 child tickets you can buy. If there are not enough spaces near the full season or half season ticket holder, fans will be relocated as a group to the Milton End.
'

And it is not just on season tickets that I would envisage a reduction, a lower level of match day ticket prices next season is something that we will also see, surely?

This is likely to be the case as this will, no questions asked, be their decision to make - previous owners dictated this seasons costs - so I suspect that CSI will make it wisely as so far I think that credit needs to be given to the work that they have done...

Hopefully we will see a good intake of fans taking up this half season ticket offer, which is a very good offer.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

tbf to CSI Super Bock it was not they that set our season ticket fee - in many ways they are damned if they do and damned if they dont this season as far as tickets go...
we need to see more people through the gates, not just for them to get money but for PFC to start to grow again - these offers seem the only way.
like i said above i feel a little put out but can see the bigger picture here and would expect a pretty good deal for us next season when we renew.
also as said tho, at the end of the day we opted to pay the price we did, no one forced us to do this did we, we could have walked away and said thanks but no thanks, we didnt tho...
