Notts County have done a "two for Crewe" offer tomorrow, £2 a ticket for everyone. They've sold out 17,500. That's impressive even though they will make far less money than their usual attendance at the usual prices. Maybe they can afford to lose the money.
Encouraging new supporters to become regulars should  never be looked upon as losing money.
We obviously cant go down that route to encourage new fans as we have no where to put them so we stick with our loyal regular 7000 and hope 6000 of them turn up, no more no less as to cater for all.
'Its enough for Northampton town' according KT and others at our club, but after 24 years we're getting well used to it. 😂😂

The tiny ground despite being an embarrassment to our club, averages 80% full over the season so until it has some expansion and other redevelopment, it doesn't make sense to try and attract new supporters.... they wont come back to what we have to offer.

What gives you the right to speak for those "new supporters"? How do you know that they won't come back?

I guess it would dilute the value of a season ticket, which may put them off for next season. Iím playing devils advocate here. I think it should be kids for a quid (if accompanied by a paying adult) as itís half term.

He said #grabagrannybythe......


I think we should move away from the whole area of grabbing to be honest. Wink It clearly discriminates against anyone without any hands.

Most would have an idea of what they expect from a visit to a professional stadium, so paying £24 to sit in the front row of a tiny stand away from friends and getting wet, isnt a good return sales pitch.
The result of a match doesn't need not to be critical for new supporters to return multiple times if the big match day experience is right.
Sadly Sixfields lacks this.

Would they? How do you know this?  Maybe some don't want what you think is ideal.

And that's the thing isn't it?? They will lose money.

So when someone above says "whats our comical department doing".....I assume they mean commercial department.....then a good commercial department would never advocate the club losing money.
We've done kid-a-quid and discounted prices before, it seems the difference it gate figures is negligible. We haven't got the ground to do what Nott's County are doing, what Coventry did last weekend, what MK do regularly, what Bradford do with their season tickets, so we can only accommodate a limited number of new supporters anyway. Maybe when we have the long awaited expansion we'll have the scope to do something.

Taking tomorrows game in isolation.....say we made it a tenner for everyone. We would have to offer that price to the away fans too (same prices in comparable areas of the ground and all that).......so we have circa 1000 home fans paying walk-up or buy in advance prices and 500 away fans too. So thats 1500 @£22-24 a ticket...total matchday ticket revenue is 33-36k,
Obviously that means we'd need an extra 1800 to 2100 fans on top of those who were already willing to pay the full price just to break even. Increased footfall benefits from programmes and food for example would be negated by increased stewarding/Police requirements.

So do you think that we'd get an extra 2100 fans for a Tuesday night game in February?? I don't! That's probably why they don't bother!!

As has also been said, it dilutes the price of a season ticket.....they are not that discounted as they are (if you take June price for the West Stand as £430 and matchday ticket price of £22, you only save £76 if you were going to attend every game) meaning that if you miss 3 games of the season you'd have been just as well to pay when you could make it and not been any worse off financially. It doesn't take much discounting of games to eat into that £76 saving to make people think "why bother buying a season ticket?"

so people now don't give a toss if we win or lose as long as they can eat pies at half time? You're such an idiot, it's no wonder you're viewed as a joke

Why do you always (without fail) have a pop at Beds? Is he not allowed an opinion? Or is there something personal going on here?

Are you new to the board? He has a succession of half thought through ideas such as rip down the away end to build a terrace and then rebuild the seated stand in a couple of years. His ideas are costed seemingly using whatever numbers he can see written down around where he is sitting. He has a great many questions and demands of KT yet absolutely refuses to put any of them to him either face to face, in writing or by proxy and then continues to demand answers, he seems to think the ground is too small to sell out (whatever that means), he continues to say that KT belittled the club by saying that currently a larger ground isn't necessarily a priority despite the evidence (current average about 5500).
There's load of other reasons, you like to try and portray yourself as being clever, you don't need me to list anymore.

My question was about you, not him.

You seem to know all of his flaws (youíve even listed them) either leave him to his own thoughts, which he is entitled to have, or make your own point coherently. The insults make you look petty, something Iíve been dragged into when fighting fire with fire on other threads.

Like I said, is it something personal? It certainly seems that way.
