Overpriced
£57 or £37 for a fish supper out the brig

Usually do hospitality few times a year and sponsor matchball or captains airband

No doing it anymore overpriced for what you get back

You aren't paying for the food you are paying for the experience.
I love doing hospitality but cant afford it on a regular basis.
Does seem a bit expensive but enough of us are up for doing it occasionally to fill it up every week.

• Hot pie, tea and coffee at half-time

As the feathered one says it's the experience you are paying for not just the meal which isn't a fish supper btw.

I’m a season ticket holder & have to agree that £37 is a good price for a 1/2 days entertainment (I don’t include the fare on the pitch in that)

Reasonable 3 course meal, pleasant surroundings & a warm place to go at half time with a pie, suasage roll & cup of tea to keep you going.
The drink might not be free but there is plenty of it to ensure that whatever the score, your day will have a happy ending

Jim Leishman NEVER fails to keep the days guests well entertained

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but some folks are just plain wrong...... that’s just my opinion of course

The brig done s great “fish supper” 2 seasons ago....never since. 2 other courses plus entertainment too.

Great value at EEP compared to others in our league. £100 for Tannadice and Firhill for example.

What an embarrassing post 😂

I must admit that it is one of my ambitions to go to EEP hospitality one day. I have only heard good things about it. What's the deal with getting into those boxes below the main stand? Is that just for sponsors? Sounds like a rather fun way to watch a game, especially if it is a cold day.

Kids are most welcome in hospitality and there's a discounted price for them. Of the 7 pitchside boxes, 4 are booked out for the season by sponsors. The others are available to book on a game by game basis.

I’m sure Purvis, Kip McBay and William Braisby have boxes for the year that they use???

Sure if you phone Margaret you can book others. It’s normally a great day and big Leish is tremendous!!

Most fans comment how inclusive ours is as well

Credit to the club for that

Aye great day out. It was always under priced I thought previously.

If the club want to progress, they need to charge the going rate. Some folk seem to be stuck in 1995 when it comes to the pricing of things.

I see it was the OP's first post.
I hope the fact everyone so far has disagreed doesn't put him off posting again.
Its all about opinions. Maybe after reading the responses Gogs has reconsidered the value of the day out.

Welcome onboard Gogs.

Yes, BAWB, I can confirm that hospitality for the Pars v Blue Brazil was £90 per head, just before we went into administration. It was a category A game, apparently.

Not sure 100% but I think category B games were £65.



Not your average Sunday League player.

I can’t remember prices, but I’m remembering the hospitality costs being really cheap with a free bar attached to one of the packages. Been helped out many a time. Could be part of the reason we went into administration.....

Was there some 4 weeks ago, courtesy of my old workmate Chris, free drink and good food and company.
Didn't like the pitchside box, felt totally detached from the game, shouting at a perspex window not quite the same.
Nice to meet Colin O'Brien though and the great Roy Barry!

I thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality experience last weekend (except the game obviously)

Met some old friends, the food was decent, Big Leish was on form, John Holt was entertaining, the beer was reasonably priced and my old man had a great day out for his 60th.

It's hard not to love this wee club of ours when you see the huge amount of work that people put in behind the scenes to make it a huge success.

On the long flight home to the US the next day I consoled myself about the result by just being grateful we still have the famous old team to watch at East End and regardless of results sometimes we just need to remember that

I booked a table for 10 people last year, for my 60th, roast chicken plus the trimmings, food wasn't great, but it all depends on who is putting on the fayre for that particular match. (I guess I was just unlucky !) I would have preferred fish'n chips ! Pies at half-time were good though ! ( not to mention a 5-1 win! )

I have only been once with my brother and a few stalwart Pars fans, when I was back home a few years ago. It was a fantastic way to spend a few hours at a football match. Thoroughly recommend it.
