A complete no brainer IMHO - a saving of £190 and raises a further £12,500 (approx.) for the club, based on 500 STs up from £99.

Season tickets are great value compared to the walk up charges, which are ridiculous for this level of football.

I get we need to increase revenue but the club are taking a big gamble here; unless we have a winning team or create huge momentum behind the season ticket promotion, gates are going to go down, this change is a false economy. So we will lose money ultimately - less over the bar, less programmes, less merchandise, less food etc. Lower gates means we will be less attractive to sponsors as well.

Personally I think £15 is ridiculous. Sends out all the wrong messages and let's be frank here, it's hardly as if the football we've seen justifies this. Admittedly of course our home form has improved from dreadful to not bad at all. I dread to think how many paying spectators there were for our game against Bath. This rise is hardly going to improve things.

Baffled to be honest. The season ticket is if course very good value but those walk ups....as bad as this country's walk on rail fares.

Here's how our new prices compare with the top 5 divisions in England. You can now get a cheaper ticket to watch Wycombe in League 2 than watching the Stones in National League South.

Now let me guess which member of the board came up with this price hike ?

Didn’t the same happen at St.Albans

I’ll be getting a season ticket so won’t affect me but it’s the people who come to games occasionally that it’ll put off I believe

We need money, obviously, but £15 for game at this level is plainly madness. We are going to have to sell a hell of a lot of season tickets otherwise gates will crash next season, decent start withstanding.

Can only presume the hike in day tickets is to push as many regular supporters down the season ticket route.

The ST deal is in my view a steal and should see a healthy take-up in numbers

A reminder - to make sure the club get the maximum revenue - Cash/Cheque/Electronic Bank Transfer payments attract NO handling fees :D - Debit/Credit card payments do :shock:

Re the Match Day prices, not sure making comparisons with other club's some 15+ miles away from The Vale adds anything ..... if the team hit the ground running and win games home and away, people will come to The Vale to see what is going on............

If we're looking at making adjustments, more financial prudence when handing out players contracts would be the best place to start. I've no problem with the club (mainly PM) splashing (his) the cash in an attempt to gain promotion. However at least buy BMW's with BMW money.

Raising the cost to £15 is just punishing the little guy. Not sure if that's a great start by the new EXB. It also limits the clubs ability to grow somewhat.
