Our first season as a full-time club is drawing to a close, and what an eventful season it has been!
We still have four games to go in the National League and the Cheshire Senior Cup Final to look forward to this month, but thoughts are already turning to what 2023/24 will bring, and with that we are pleased to announce details of our Season Ticket options for next season.
Early Bird Window
Season Tickets are now on sale, with an Early Bird discount through to the end of May. This is for existing season ticket holders renewing and also for those fans taking the step to acquiring a Season Ticket for the first time.
Season Ticket Benefits
Being a Season Ticket holder brings a wide range of benefits.
As well as guaranteed entry to all 23 of our National League home fixtures for next season, your ticket will also include entry to two planned pre-season friendlies at a significant discount to paying on the day.
In addition, other benefits include advance priority purchase of tickets for away fixtures, FA Cup and FA Trophy ties, a dedicated turnstile at the Golf Road end of the ground, 10% off all retail purchases and unique special offers for ticket holders throughout the forthcoming season.
Season Ticket Costs
We recognise the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on you all, and we have sought to minimise the impact on our fans despite the significant extra costs the club has and will incur over 2023 and 2024.
In particular, you will be pleased to hear that Early Bird pricing for Adult and Concession Season Tickets has been held at the 22/23 pricing, with the Adult tickets costing £299 and the Concession £245 if purchased before the end of May.
Juniors (ages 12-18) will be £100 and Children (ages 5-11) will be £50 if purchased before the end of next month. Season Tickets will no longer be available for our young fans under the age of 5.
From June 1st 2023, Season Tickets will go on General Sale and pricing will be as follows:
Adult | £320
Concession | £265
Junior | £120
Child | £60
Individual matchday pricing for next season will be as follows:
Adult | £20
Concession | £15
Junior | £9
Child | £4
Infant | £1
Note: This new category of Infant is for all those supporters who are under 5 years of age.
Season Ticket Savings
An adult season ticket therefore offers you a 30% discount over paying for individual league games, and an early bird purchase increases this saving to 35%. In other words, you recoup your outlay by the 16th game of the season, or 15th with the early bird. And this does not include the additional benefits from the two preseason friendlies.
For Concession season ticket holders, the figures are a 23% saving, or 29% with the Early Bird discount. We have also held individual match day admission prices at 2022/23 levels for Concessions. The Child and Junior Season Tickets are approaching half price compared to paying on the day and therefore represent excellent value.
One minor change we are making is to the issuing of a Season Ticket card – this will not be standard for the forthcoming season as digital Season Tickets will become the default. The majority of you have already made the decision to dispense with a physical card, and therefore it makes sense to take this step.
However, for those supporters who do want a physical Season Ticket card, you will be able to specify this when you order your ticket for an additional £5. This fee covers production of the plastic card, postage and packaging.
We have had magnificent support again this season, and we will once more average over 2000 for League fixtures, even with the increase in midweek fixtures.
We have seen The J. Davidson Stadium sold out on two occasions this season, as well as an additional four matches with crowds over 3,000. Next season you will have the opportunity to see this exciting young team take the next step in its development – there will be thrills and spills; there will be excitement and moments of joy. Make sure you are there to see next season in all its glory. We can’t wait to see you back!
