I guess if you can afford to live in St Albans you can afford those ticket prices!

I'd like to know how step 2 ticket prices have compared with inflation down the years.

Its clearly a massive piss take by them and one that should be met by an equally massive boycott by away and home fans for that matter.

However there was similar outrage when they put it up to £ 15 several years ago especially on here and yet when we've played them at theirs I've seen Wealdstone fans drinking in their club house and eating their food so in fact people find it hard to break their habits no matter how outraged they are.

So their chairman got away with it before so no doubt he'll be thinking he can do so again.

However he won't be getting a penny off me.

I generally boycott Concord but would I boycott St Albans, probably not?

That said, there is no excuse for anyone to buy food and drink from their sale units. Last season they had craft beer from stalls and our fans were lapping it up.

Pre booked over the Internet is £16.50 I believe but £18 for a walk up ticket is ridiculous you can watch EFL for that

Yes, a real rip-off.

But what can Wealdstone fans do?

The choices seem to be..

1. Boycott the game entirely. (follow the game in the Wealdstone clubhouse/ St Albans ale houses / stay at home?)

2. Boycott the first half and walk in for free for the second half, buy nothing. (stuff yourself beforehand / take food & drink into the ground?)
(St Albans yoof seemed to do just that a couple of seasons ago when St Albans first raised their prices for entry)

3. Buy a ticket online, go to game but pay for nothing else.

4. Be a mug... pay full price on the gate, buy a programme, buy burgers & chips, go to their clubhouse and buy beers, buy more beers in the ground.


At the moment I am favouring the second option. but much will depend on when in the season the game is played and how important it is.

Perhaps for this one game, our award winning programme team could produce an unofficial away programme?
I would buy that for certain.

Any other suggestions?
