Whatever the price, last season the administration of the issue of season tickets was appalling.

Do we know what action the club has taken this year to ensure that the issue of season tickets goes smoother this year?



The person responsible for the administration last year, no longer works for the club.

Whether or not that means an improvement, we will see.

It is a shame that the club have raised the price from £14 to £15, but hopefully it will help with the matchday management, ie not running out of change. However £190 for a season in the National League, be it 22 or 23 matches is superb value and I will be getting mine before the end of the month.

Re: 2017/18 Season Ticket Prices Announced


Have to agree about last year's administration being unacceptable. I was one of many that emailed the person charged with administering the system, on more than one occasion over a period of several weeks and received neither an acknowledgement nor an answer to enquiries. Indeed, even the given email address for applications was wrong and remained so weeks after I personally pointed out the mistake! May I humbly conclude that the season ticket administration ran as smooth as clockwork prior to last season's debacle and a return to the previous incumbent would be in the best interests of both the supporters and the club.

Ojiveojive, totally agree! There is no better person to issue the season tickets.

Re: 2017/18 Season Ticket Prices Announced


No one else think these season ticket prices are a bit steep?
 £105 for me to buy one next season, £75 more than I would have had to pay last season. Whilst I am an avid Moors fan, so I will still be buying a season ticket, I don't think it is going to be convincing people of a similar age to start supporting the Moors (instead of Villa or Blues) on a more regular basis if the season ticket prices are only £30 cheaper than at VP. Only teams charging higher season ticket prices than us are Torquay and Maidstone, but they don't have FL clubs as close by as we do. Look at Woking for example who are offering season tickets priced at £20 for 12-19 year olds. I think we are missing out on a lot of potential supporters in this age category.
Surely, the Moors aren't seeing season tickets as our main source of income as this is going to come from ticket sales on match days when sides with big away followings in this league come to our ground - they are going to see £15 as decent value.
Personally think that cheaper prices need to be offered in all categories in order for amount of home fans to increase.

Re: 2017/18 Season Ticket Prices Announced


I'm guessing that's part and parcel of jumping up an age bracket, though? It would still have been a 50 quid jump last season. Not insubstantial, I know, but I suppose the club's thinking is that a 16-year-old is more likely to be able to earn enough money to justify inclusion in the higher price bracket than someone still at school. That said, some form of education is compulsory until age 18 these days, and not that many 16-17s will be living away from home.

Personally, I'd have the £30 junior bracket covering anyone 13-17. I don't get why 12 is the chosen cut off point for free entry. 12-year-olds are generally no bigger or less annoying than they were a year previously, can't even (legally) get a paper round to earn their 30 quid until they're 13 (unless I'm much mistaken), and at any rate are still likely to be coming along with mom or dad. It does make you wonder about the level of thought that goes into creating these categories.

Likewise the 'NUS' part of the student concession. What difference does being a member of NUS make to whether or not someone is a poor student? I doubt that the NUS has been negotiating hard in the Moors boardroom to get a special concession for its members! Surely the business case for student concessions is because they're financially poor but time rich, so more likely to pitch in to the club community (and spend money in the bar) if given a more affordable entry? Plus the whole moral angle about wanting to encourage and empower people to pursue their talents regardless of their income... It shouldn't have anything to do with membership of a particular union. Anyhow, while many university students are automatically members of the NUS, a number of large universities aren't affiliated. I know for a fact that the club still gives out a student discount to anyone with a valid university card, so the whole 'NUS' part is redundant.

The prices themselves seem decent enough, presuming any increases in profit go largely into our playing budget. It's all pretty much in the expected ballpark.

Solihull Mooron, the real and penalty from paying out "only £30" more for a villa ticket would be that it entitles you to see villa. You would regret this option unless you like booing.

Re: 2017/18 Season Ticket Prices Announced


.... and firefighters, and nurses, and paramedics, and lollipop persons! Come on guys, get real, where do you draw the line? How about concessions for anyone earning less that the average wage, which the government puts at 26 or 27,000? I do think there could be a rethink on the age ranges, if everyone has to be in full time education until the age of eighteen, then in my opinion, that is where the adult price should kick in. After all, you're not legally an adult until you reach that age.

Re: 2017/18 Season Ticket Prices Announced


Age ranges definitely need to be changed if the club want people of my age to be buying season tickets and coming to games more regularly, it just depends on whether the club want more money now from a few people buying season tickets for £105 or if they want to get people in on the cheap and getting them to become full time Moors fans over time (pretty much what I have become). I can encourage people to buy season tickets if they are £30, but I've got no chance if they're £105. These people are also more likely to go to away matches if they are seeing more matches due to buying season tickets. Pretty much repeating points, but would really like to see club change age bracket.
Roj - Still bitter about Agbonlahor's goal?

I'm still bitter about Gabby Agbonlahor's entire career.
