Just rang to sort mine and tickets for next two home games.  Mentioned to woman in ticket office how good staff have been over last few months.  Her reply......’Well we all love the club.’ 

We likely wouldn’t have a club to watch on iFollow...

Surely, you can't moan if you didn't request a refund and we were told early in the pandemic that it was 10% off for next season. Some folks!

Were we allowed to / did anyone request a refund for this season ? 2020/2021 ? I haven’t seen anything about this anywhere ? 
 

Apart from smart people who signed up via DD and cancelled it; therefore they wouldn’t have paid for the ticket but then now can get a ticket for 2021/2022 for a discounted rate !

I'm not going unless Hawaiian hula girls exalt my presence, throwing petals in my path as I approach and serve me free Bovril at half-time for under a tenner.

Some of that will happen...

Folk about moaned about the club's perilous financial position for several of the past few years. They've complained about how badly managed the club was and now that the current owners are trying to run it as a business, they're getting moaned at too.

I think Ms Brittan et al have sat down and considered it for a long time to work out what's the most they can charge without pissing too many fans off, whilst also selling them as cheap as they can realistically afford to. That's why they're more successful in business than most of us. (Obviously we've some senior captains of industry on here, so that bit doesn't apply to you)

This year's ticket is cheaper than last years.
Last years ticket price could have got me a cheap week away all-inclusive somewhere warm
This year's price won't get you a weekend in a caravan.
It's all relative.

At the end of the day an adult and an under-18 can watch games for the combined pittance of £11.91.
Jesus Christ, they might as well open the doors for free and fuck off home until the money runs out.

Absolutely spot on sir.

I hope we can reward Sharon's faith by backing this very fair offer with similar numbers to last year, whatever division we're in.

Can't grumble at all.

Don't know what was expected. The club has had to carry on paying wages despite obvious income dips. Some cuts no doubt but wholesale furloughing was impossible as football has been allowed to continue, as I'm sure we're are thankful for.

One thing is for sure, we won't have made huge profits to fund large drops in season ticket prices, and our owners aren't billionaires. They are however appreciated by staff and liked and respected by fans. They certainly seem to "get it" and have brought fans, the club and the community together- did anyone see the feature on us, Everton and Leicester the other day?

We had the choice of refunds but chose to leave the money there: don't quite see the point of doing that, then expecting loads back. 

After where we've been I'd rather have these owners and another season in league two than some boom and bust merchants.

I think that you are right, Mr Petchy, the option of refunds was for 2019/20. The club were clear in their literature that there was no possiblity of a refund for 20/21, so caveat emptor.

Thing is, that notwithstanding, no one had to buy a season ticket. Folk did so safe in the knowledge we would miss games, but for greater good of our club.

Doesn't add up that they would do so, and then subsequently complain about the level of discount.

Last Saturday...

watching the game at mine with a beer or two ( I’m his carer, so it’s fine). 😇

End of the game I got him a taxi for Preston station. He fell asleep and the taxi took him back to his house near Hulton Park. 🤣

Anyone not happy with pricing can go and watch some cheap local non league football 2 leagues (maybe 3) below BWFC for 3 quid entry including a bag of chips and a reach around of the tea lady and a chance of a half time substitute appearance.... 

Oh hang on: New Season Ticket Holders 

Adults £270

Concession £215

18-21s £110

12-17s £65

Matchday prices.

  • Adults £15
  • Concession £12
  • 18-21s £7
  • 12-17s £5

So it’s cheaper if I buy a season ticket at Bolton rather than pay game by game at Victory park.
