It was released this morning officially from the club, the information for next season’s season ticket pricing.
There have been rumours coming from patron meetings that Huddersfield Town would be looking to send shockwaves through the Football League by a drastic season ticket pricing for next season, which would be closer to the affordable German ticket pricing rather than the English ticketing pricing.
Dean Hoyle explained recently that he would be subsidising the cost of the significantly lower season ticket prices, by using half of the money that the club would receive from TV royalties.
With there being a lot of attention across English football with the Twenty’s Plenty campaign and the issue of ticket pricing even being discussed in the Houses of Parliament, Huddersfield has shown that it is possible to offer affordable football at a high level.
Huddersfield has offered these prices for the first 10,000 season tickets purchased:
This comes out at £7.70 per game for an Adult season ticket holder and £3 per game for 8-17 year-olds and £1 for Under-8s. This is well under the proposed £20 per ticket that Twenty Plenty advocates.
There have been many instances where clubs have received negative attention and publicity for extortionate pricing.
In this instance, Huddersfield should receive positive publicity and fellow Football League fans should be hoping that Huddersfield has success as they could act as a catalyst, and a successful example for fellow clubs to follow suit and make supporters feel appreciated rather than regarded as mere customers.
Huddersfield fans… How do you feel about the pricing structure? Will you be looking to pick up a season ticket at this pricing? Do you think that other teams should follow a similar suit? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
