My son’s up 50%, mine up 10% new band 1 u16 have to pay u21 prices so treble?

Two tier pricing. They must be very confident of their waiting list.

Post by Overchuffed » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:34 am

Club have just announced prices for next season.

Takes a bit of digging through the website as the article (typical of GSB) doesn't show the price increases (of which there are some!)

Adult O'65/U21 U16 Acc Adult Acc Conc Acc Junior
1966 £1,200 £1,200 £1,200 £1,200 £1,200 £1,200

It's a little off to offer a price for founders but for anyone that's held a ticket in the 2 years since gets hit with the increase.

And what's the reward for high ticket prices? An ambitious (alleged) £25m transfer budget for Mr. Pellegrini to spend!

I am still yet to be convinced me ditching my season ticket for this season was a bad idea. And looks like I won't again next season.

After freezing Season Ticket renewal prices in Bands 1-4 and 1966 Seats since moving to London Stadium in 2016, prices for both Founders and non-Founders in all Bands are subject to price increases.

However, a Season Ticket remains by far the cheapest way to enjoy watching West Ham United in action, with Adults saving over £400 per season compared to purchasing match-by-match, while Under-16s can save more than £500 over the course of the campaign.

I’ve heard the Club are looking at reformatting the seats behind the goals. Will my Season Ticket seat move?

Following overwhelmingly positive feedback from the Official Supporters Board we have been working with our Stadium landlords on a plan to move the lower tiers in the Bobby Moore and Sir Trevor Brooking stands closer to the pitch.

This proposal is early in the planning stage and we are not yet able to provide a firm date as to when these changes might happen, if the proposals are taken forward. The proposals will change the shape of the stand, so not every seating position will remain entirely like-for-like, even though the vast majority of seats will move closer to the action.

For Season Ticket Holders in these stands, we will keep them fully informed about the consultation process on the changes, before we agree to any alterations to the current format of the stands. These supporters will be proactively contacted by the Club with further details once they are known and we will ensure that they have priority on both the new and existing seats.

A band 3 kids ticket is £200. £150 if they were a 'founder'.

Is that not "affordable"?

It depends how much money you have.

I don't expect that someone from Mozambique can afford it.

Or, by contrast, the tickets are affordable, and it's a nice touch to reward those that have been loyal with a little discount.

So basically the only discount for Loyal "Founders" supporters compared to a Non-Founder is if you are an Under 16 sitting in Bands 1, 2 or 3.

And those Loyal Founders who are entitled to a discount from their non-Founder counterparts in Band 1, 2 or 3 , still have a 90%, 76% and 51% increase on last years price anyway.

Presumably those who have lower tier seats in the STB and BM stands near the corner flags and will actually see them move further away from goal line will see a price reduction then?!?

Perhaps they forgot to mention it.

This is classic Brady divide and conquer tactics. "You should be grateful for the 50% increase, look what we are doing to non founders! We're really rinsing them!"

We have long thought we stumbled on a policy to price the u16's out of the premium bands (which the club have defined as bands 1-3) over the next few years.

The club outright denied this to us about 18 months ago but now they have increased the prices for 1-3 by between 50% & 100% for their treasured "founders" and even more for new applicants.

By not issuing u16 ticket prices for new u16 band one, I think we can see the way this is going.

Still, at least we've got beer shelves*

**we don't actually have beer shelves in our bit

Helping to pay off some of last summers transfer budget?

I think this means we won't be spending much next season.
