They don't consider anything but profit in my opinion. I really don't think the fans deserve to pay an increase. I will reluctantly pay to renew my ticket, but I'm ashamed of our owners to be honest.Season ticket prices by stand from 2018/19 (first season back) to 2022/23 (we did not sell tickets for 20/21 due to Covid).
BWU (centre) £549, £628, £733, £786 (cumulative rise of £237 or 43%)
SBU £474, £544, £648, £686 (cumulative rise of £212 or 45%)
JH/SC £449, £514, £549, £590 (cumulative rise of £141 or 31%)
It seems like there has been a fairly muted reaction this (some ok, some not) online - I wonder if they have 'leaked it out' in this way to soften the blow when it is 'officially' communicated.
I'm not sure how much more this nets for the club, but ticket money in the scheme of things is fairly small fry (I'm sure what we would get for finishing another place higher - disregarding Europe - would be more significant). Lets say it makes us an extra £1m - how much have we lost by allowing Adama to go and sit on the bench at Barca? That move could have reasonably cost us double, triple or more what we are 'making' by doing this 7% increase. I hope the "top table" leadership team are considering that!
You think the club are immune to the increase in costs???Good job we got a good comeback draw at Chelsea otherwise we still wouldn't have heard from the ****s.
Very poor to increase prices again in the current climate.
An average of £50 rise across 20,000 brings in an extra £1m for a club that makes so much from TV money and pays £12m to agents each year.
Yes, other clubs do it, but I don't support or care for other clubs. There's no excuse for us exploiting fans as well for something that makes no difference in the bigger picture just because they can. Pure greed once again, sad to see.
In 2013, the Bayern Munich President said this:What I don’t get is this.
If they raised 22500 season tickets by £100 that would generate an extra £2.2m.
According to 20/21 figures wolves got £116m prize money finishing 13th. The team finishing 8th got £130m, so £14m more.
Is the extra they’ll raise from increasing prices worth it in terms of income overall, it’s such a small % and from a business point of view instead of pure cash income I would have thought the goodwill and good feeling of supporters would be worth way more than that, but what do I know?
