Barnsley FC Announce Ticket Price Reduction

Wednesday January 16 2013



BARNSLEY FC has slashed ticket prices for the rest of the season, afer admitting it needed to do more to gain the support of fans.

The club released a statement last week ahead of the appointment of new manager David Flitcroft, saying it plans to become more involved in the community - an area which it feels has been lacking in the last few years.

Prices will now be £20 a game for members of the Oakwell 1887 scheme (which has a one-off £3 joining fee) or £23 for non-members.

Kids between five and 11 will be charged £5 and OAPs, Under 18s and students will pay £15 if they are in the Oakwell scheme, £16 if not.

A spokesman said: "The club have decided to reduce ticket prices to encourage more fans to get down to Oakwell for their important end to the season."

Is £20 cheap? I don't know, i've never been to a match in my life, seems a lot to me. How much does it cost to see the big premiership teams?

20quid likely! £15 adults £7.50 kids then maybe id visit. That would till to £37.50 I think thats fair. I could take my child and teach him that u can be poor at something and still get on in life.

£16 for teenagers is hardly pocket money prices and still not going to encourage tomorrows fans to come to matches. BFC need to live in the real world!

Meant £20 for adults

You can never please people. The same people that want to get in for a tenner are generally the first to whinge when the club has no money to invest in the team !! Good players cost good money and need paying good wages.

wonder what the average salary for a barnsley fc player is... hmm

It is still too much for someone on a pension, and children also. To balance things out, the players wages should be paid as such. WIN Full wage, Draw half a wage. LOSE no wage. That will make them play to their full potential. Then gate money can be adjusted to suit.

Might seem like you cant please most people but just look at how hard the times are now. Drop the prices now there wont be any catagory A matches seems cheap to me. You want to fill seats get some realistic prices up. £15 adults, £7.50/£10 OAPs and students, £7.50 for kids. We have only just started to see some good results, keep it up and get the stadium filled and you will see a jump in profit. At least Flitcroft is bringing in some proven talent unlike Hill, I think we could stay up this season with more reults like we had against Millwall/Hull/Leeds and Burnley.
