 League cup prices

St Mirren look to be charging £12 for our game in Paisley, that seems like a good price.

Hopefully the home games will be similarly priced.

Hope so, but would be really odd to charge £15 for a friendly, then £12 for competitive games...

Why would it be odd.
Hibs will be due a fee to play that we need to cover.

Are Hibs due a fee did Forfarr pay us a fee . It should be like a cup game a percentage of the gate
15 is too much for a friendly it will put some people off whereas 10 would have seen a reasonable crowd

I doubt Hibs will be demanding a significant fee, for the opportunity to play a friendly without having to travel far. It will probably be a % of the gate, since we all know they tend to bring a good support through.

That said, regardless of any fee, it would definitely be odd to charge more for entry to a friendly against Hibs, than for 2 competitive games.

Really? You think folk would be happy to pay more for a game against the likes of Albion Rovers than a top 6 Premiership side, just because it's a competitive fixture? Bear in mind that any game allows you to watch the players of two teams in action.

With all due respect to Albion, Edinburgh City and East Kilbride, they're not among the most attractive of opponents, even in a small football pool like Scotland.

Where did I say we should charge more for the league cup games? If the Hibs game and the league cup games were all £12, that would be ok with me.

Personally, I don’t think friendlies are entertaining and should not be more expensive than competitive games, regardless of opponents. Teams changing their entire 11 and focusing on other aspects of the game, rather than fighting for a win/draw is less entertaining than a competitive game. The games lack intensity in friendlies and it’s obvious that the result means nothing, when you’re watching the game.

Absolutely agree - the League Cup games should be competitively priced to attract as many people along as possible right at the start of the season.

£15 for a Hibs friendly is scandalous - I am really looking forward to the start of the season but this is one game I won’t be at - Hibs should be looking at this as an opportunity to prepare for the season. If they’re looking for a fee we should tell them to shove it.

I'm sorry GG but friendlies are in no way a good way to see two teams, especially at that price. You're not really seeing the teams when when there are a dozen subs, when it's not the first XI etc. £15 would maybe be OK in the old days when we didn't have a group stage in the League Cup and if it was ours (and Hibs) last friendlies before the real action starts but I'd much prefer to watch a League Cup (or even a Challenge Cup) game with a competitive element and only 3 subs than a glorified training session.

I get what folk are saying but you have to take into account the quality of the opposition. Hibs are certainly a bigger draw than any club in League 2, imo.

Pars91's suggestion of having the same price for the Hibs game as the league cup section games has merit.

I’d be stunned. Crowd v Hibs was 2,125 two years ago, at £10. 2,016 was the attendance v Hearts on a Saturday in 2016. Think we’ll be lucky to see 1500 on Saturday, given the prices.

Even in those games, well over 50% of that attendance was away fans. Can’t see many over 1,000 making the trip this weekend.

If it was priced for £15 for both the Hibs and Albion game it would be a no brainer, Albion would be the preference. I'd rather not pay that amount for neither but £15 for basically a kick about with Hibs is a joke.

At least my dosh would be helping the Pars and also a smaller club in Albion.

No sure what the crowd on Saturday will be like but I’m no expecting a bumper crowd. The Dunfermline Fake Festival is on and the crowd for the Hibs v Arbroath game was 1036.

It’s say 2500 at most and that’s at a push

Would be interested to know why we seem to be the only team I can see (in any group) charging more than £12. To be charging 25% more than top flight teams doesn’t make sense to me.

You can watch Hearts v Dundee Utd, St Johnstone v Ross County (2 top flight teams!), Hibs v Alloa and many other ‘stronger’ teams for less money than we’re charging for the same stage of the same competition.

Given we’re one of the last clubs to announce prices, I can’t understand why we’re charging so much for games against Albion Rovers and East Kilbride. Should be trying to encourage fans to come along and support this young squad, not make it less likely that people come along.

Astonishing prices from DAFC and very counter productive.
What on earth are we thinking?
Everybody knows we have to cut our costs this season but shafting the fans isn't going to be the way to counteract that.
Surely an extra 1000 fans through the gates at £10 for Saturday and hundreds more for the cup games is more beneficial to the club with all the extra revenue nevermind the added support?
A decision the club will regret I fear.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

I think you’re right, last season was garbage you have to get the “floaters” back and charging £15 isn’t going to do it. You get them back in for the two home ties where we’re big favourites, entertain them, get them back for the league campaign.
And for the loyal fans who’ve bought season tickets regardless of the 5hit show of last season, thank for your continued support please come out during the week and pay £15 for the pleasure of watching Albion Rovers and again to watch East Kilbride the following weekend.
It seems very hardline this season, half expecting my Bridie to be a fiver.

So let me get this straight we are charging more for a Pars vs East Kilbride game than Hearts are charging Vs Dundee United. I know we lost money last season but we are shafting fans with those prices. I went to Everton Vs Valencia in a pre season friendly last season and paid less than what they are wanting for the Hibs game on Saturday.
The Board need to be careful with what they are doing here. Shafting the bread and butter isn't the answer.

I don't think you can class it as a f*ck up. They must have seriously thought £15 against Albion and East Kilbride was acceptable. They would have known what the prices were elsewhere.

The fans give enough dosh, they are beginning to take the p!sh and it could well come back to haunt them.

For a club that seems to have a clear long term vision in terms of the leadership and now the playing side this seems like a very poor short term strategy.

These games are an opportunity to attract new fans along and make some goodwill with existing supporters. £10, even £12 would have been fine, offer a good discount to families and offer a discount for the first league game as well.

Seriously, what happened to the importance of competitive pricing? Charging 25% more than top flight clubs is not competitive.

I was fine with the new league prices, as the board highlighted it was competitive pricing. The league cup pricing strategy seems to just be a case of trying to fleece the loyal fans. Should be encouraging people to come back, see the new team and Crawford’s idea of how we should play. This is the opposite.

all the clubs involved have to agree on the pricing and obviously only those directly involved will know how the decisions were reached, if we started off or only suggested the higher price then that is poor but maybe we wanted a lower price and the other 2 clubs didn't.

however it happened, £12 and £6 should have been the prices set.

the league site hasn't got this years rulebook on it just yet but last years has a section on it (rule 10)

looking back at last season, it was £15 and £10 at Dundee although their other home game was £12 and £6

Defo won't be going to Hibs game at that price, unlikely I will go to the cup games now unless I have nothing else to do. I didn't renew season ticket because I couldn't get along often enough last season to justify it and while I usually would just buy one anyway as my contribution what I did see last season was so turgid that I didn't have the will for it. That said approach to signing seems exciting and these matches would have been an opportunity to upsell me a season ticket which is an opportunity lost now.

League Cup games (and 1 SC tie) used to be included in the cost of a season ticket. Perhaps the club might wish to consider this next season, especially if this season's attendances at the League Cup games is less than expected.

Of course, the ST would cost slightly more to reflect the extra games involved.

Summer games are an opportunity to get Families to attend a Match, not to mention we always get some Tourists who are holidaying in the area.Some will be attracted by the World Cup coverage.

Prices of £15 Adult £10 Concession are,frankly,inexplicable.

Albion Rovers play to Gates around 300 and East Kilbride are non League.

As others are pointing out, box office games are priced at a more realistic £12 and £6.

We are spoiled by a Board whose strong point is their transparency but the lack of any explanation does not sit well with their silence.

I find the Supporters Liason Officers courteous and primpt to reply and I suggest fans contact them.

I also know 3 Dundee fans who have cancelled plans to attend the League match which the presence of TV cameras will ruin financially.At least that is not self inflicted.

I think the boards strategy is to try and squeeze as much money as possible from the fans. They are not considering the fans who have already paid out more for their season tickets and tops as well as trying to afford a holiday. A gaff by the board imo which may open some of the scars from last season. This is a fans run club but don't seem to know what its like to be a fan.

£15 for a friendly is ridiculous. I don’t go to friendly games anyway.

That’s a hard one to take for the early cup games after last season. I think I’ll give them a miss. I’d urge other fans to do the same if they aren’t happy with the prices. Vote with your feet. We must be in a bad way if we are shafting our bread and butter.

if you don’t go to friendlies why the need to comment on how much it is to get in?

I don’t go to the ballet and therefore don’t feel the urge to remark on the price structure for entry!

"Just vote with your feet folks."

Agreed, might just be the reality check the board need.

Giving this one a miss, if we don't let the board know now that the prices are unreasonable they will try and exploit the fans more. Unfortunately a lot of the fans can't afford to pay the increased prices no doubt our transparent and fan friendly board will explain the reason for the prices. Or is it the case that we are in more financial difficulties than the board are letting on.

Unlike the club charging overpriced admission to watch teams from lower leagues ?

That's a good idea ?

There’s a defensive mechanism among some supporters that doesn’t allow them to see the club criticised. Wake up,these prices are indefensible, I’m not buying the “maybe the other team wanted it at £15” in which case our answer should be No that’s taking the pi55 out of fans, at worst it’s a negotiation.

1970 per a ticket to watch the Russian national ballet perform The Nut cracker at The Alhambra is £21-£25.
I am pretty sure it wouldn't be the same price to watch them practice

We’ve doubled the cost of a ticket for anyone aged 13-18, based on last year’s prices and increased adults by 50%.

2 teenagers would have been £10 last year, this year it’s £20. Add in 2 parents and there would be an increase from £30 last year to £50 this year.

I don’t think it’s too much to ask that the board explain the reasoning behind this. It seems to go against their claims that they’re trying to encourage families along and trying to encourage people to come back. Particularly when no top flight club is charging more than £12 and £6.

We’re 25% more expensive for an adult and 67% more expensive for a concession, than any top flight club. Seems unjustifiable - not that the board appear to be making any attempt to justify it.

As far as I know the admission price for today’s game is £15, that’s a bit less than the normal league walk up price therefore it is a bit cheaper to watch them “practice”

Not really interested in how much it is to see the Russian Ballet practice but I’m sore if you can find the price there will be someone on here who wants to mount a campaign to boycott it.

It should never have taken this long but at least the club have finally seen sense.
As a fan owned club , they were dangerously close to making it an 'us vs them' situation with no actual explanation.

OK we still don't have an explanation but an admission in itself the club made a balls up of their pricing structure.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

Yeas, good thinking

Reduce the pricing and open the other stand that we dont need and therefore have to provide and pay for extra stewarding, makes perfect sense!

let’s see what other pearls of wisdom we can come up with

If 500 more fans turn up, we would need extra stewarding anyway.
In fact, the extra fans who turn up would pay their wages.
Imagine that?

To be frank the main stand is all we really need most weeks. If the enclosures in front of the main stands could be turned into a space for our disabled supporters, then they could probably get away with closing the other three stands and still have plenty room for all the fans in the main stand. Save a bit dosh in Stewarding and Policing costs. There is no need for the North West Stand to ever be open these days

Aside from the obvious fact it would make the atmosphere non existent, packing the main stand would still need extra stewards and turnstyles open plus extra catering stalls.
So how much money would the club actually save to sacrifice any diminishing atmosphere we already have with three stands open?
I can't think of anything worse than sitting in the main stand every home game anyway.
We really aren't that skint.
