It would be an absolute disgrace to charge anybody to watch us in a relegation play off. Make it free, encourage as many people to attend the home ties as they can

The club should be letting you in with your season ticket. It’s time for them to give us something back for having to endure that all season.

It should 100% be free entry for season ticket holders for the home playoff game(s). I wasn`t willing to get one this season after the shambles that has been going on at the club for several years, but the fans who have had to endure this team week after week in person should be compensated for their commitment.

I wonder if it`s one of those situations where everyone in the playoffs need to agree a pricing structure. I`m sure in some competitions that`s the case.

Does the SFA not get a big chunk out of the crowd money in these playoff games so I don`t think they would allow any discount to admission prices if that is the case, but I may be wrong.

Utterly despicable decision.

Full price for a relegation playoff for season ticket holders!? Cost of living crisis thru the country and we’ve suffered that nonsense last night, then you want another £20?! It’s so blind from them.

So Shove it up yer jacksie you contemptuous gits. The very least they could have done is go for £15 same as QP. But no, rip off merchants.

However, after the season we`ve had and how gutless & spineless that squad of players are, for the club to charge those prices, I won`t be there. They can ram it up their hoop.

Full price is poor. And just to confirm, there is no minimum price that must be set and no percentage of gate receipts are to be deducted and paid to the SPFL. That situation only aplies to the play-offs to get into the top division, and is used to fund the extra parachute payment. Rules C29 - C32 cover our games. Contrast this with rule C26 for the other play-off, and how there is no similar rule for our one.

https://spfl.co.uk/admin/filemanager/images/shares/pdfs/SPFL%20Rules%20and%20Regulations%2001-Apr-22%20(MASTER%20COPY)%20CLEAN.pdf

I don`t think it`s been full price for any of our recent play-off games. Even the Dundee Utd game was £15 for both games, and no, our normal gate price was not £15 that season. I find this one particularly poor after the horrible misjudgement around the games with restricted crowds in December and January, where we decided to exclude fans completely. That one hurt at the time, and still does. An extra game that nobody wanted surely would have been a good chance to give a little back to people, especially those who paid up front for games that they didn`t get to see in person.

Just woke up after being nightshift following last night`s shambles a saw email with "ticketing prices" for play offs, what an absolute kick in the goolies that is to loyal supporters, so angry
I`m a season ticket holder for me and my kids after the season just endured they want another £96 for the two play off home games (£48 maybe as it may only be 1 game).
It should defo be free entry for ST and reduced greatly for all other seats. I`ve followed the pars man and boy but this is too much, I hope they get a crowd of less than 500 to send a message.
This is nearly on par with Raith Rovers January own goal in signing Goodwillie, showing supporters such disdain is unforgivable.

Maybe we should have waited to see the outcome of the first leg before setting prices for the second leg but maybe that would be leaving things too late. I`m a bit annoyed that ST holders only have until midnight on Monday to reserve their normal seat.

I agree though that the club have shot themselves in the foot with the pricing for these games (hopefully plural). It is a bit of a stretch to praise fans for their tremendous backing,on the one hand, and to then charge them full whack for additional games. It’s a slap in the face and the board need to look again at the resentment this decision has occasioned !

The board really clearly do not care, apart from the dismal football there have been repeat breakdowns in the relationship with the fans which if it were any other industry would result in promises to do better, increased engagement and even (heaven forbid) a step added to every decision process to ask ‘is this the right thing to do’.

Instead they appear embattled and entrenched and seem to have lost sight of the fact that football is just another part of the entertainment industry and they have a responsibility to make the product attractive, priced suitably and an experience to be enjoyed.

It’s the classic blazers approach that has blighted Scottish football since it began.

Correct. Season ticket holders have been shafted for a few seasons now. The debacle at refusing Christmas/new year time with not bothering when other clubs did. When we were supposed to get the falkirk league cup tie included but couldn’t as it was on premier sport, they should have given the st johnstone game free instead in replace of it, but no. We get screwed, and after suffering watching this rubbish, everyone this time (not just season ticket holder) are getting screwed. Pars tv should be £20 too. If it’s cheaper I’ll probably just watch it on that and hope others do to so it’s a pathetic crowd. The board need to learn. Don’t screw the loyal fanbase!!!!!

Although there was a media backlash to the Goodwillie signing the vast majority of Raith Rovers fans didn`t actually care less whereas this ticketing pricing is a total slap in the face to ALL pars supporters leaving them disillusioned as to whether the board actually give a damn about them therefore it is most definitely on par.

Unfortunately, I can`t see it being reversed seeing as the tickets are already on sale, GG.

An absolutely shambolic decision but that`s been the trend of our season. Just another thing to add to the list of myself feeling so disconnected with the club like never before. I sit in the main stand. No way am I paying £22 to watch that lot, on top of what I`ve already given them this season for what I`ve had in return.

I`m not happy with myself that it`s come to this and I`ve decided not to attend a home match after years of never missing one. I`m so pissed off with the whole club at the moment it makes me want to spew up.

Not often you see a football topic with such universal agreement.

If this is a decision of the new man then he`s off to a bad start.

I`m not surprised at these games not being covered by season tickets but they are games not budgeted for so financially are a bonus. Pricing should reflect this.

I wouldn`t imagine they`re even into double figures at this stage, Kessel and it wouldn`t be too onerous a task to refund any discount. I`m sure nobody would have batted an eyelid had we been in the promotion play offs after a good season.

Think we might not even get anywhere near the crowd we had last night for next weeks game. Surely if we make the final they should reduce prices since they’ve get again made another **** up. Baffles me how much people give our BOD an easy ride, it’s literally one mistake to another

The fans are not an afterthought. We are the main source of the club`s revenue. Running the club and playing these games carry costs.
For this reason it`s unrealistic to give season ticket holders free entry to even the first home tie.
However, this is a decision that is nothing short of exploiting the fans for as much as possible because of the financial issues that this shambles of a season will have cost the club.
It`s not only short sighted with season ticket renewal time just around the corner. It`s just bad business because the total nett takings from the first home game will be lower than they would have been if they had set them at, say, £15 and a couple of quid cheaper for season ticket holders to recognise their ongoing support. Every business rewards customer loyalty these days. It`s just common sense. This is the complete opposite of that. Well done lads.
Contrary to what others have said I actually hope they set the ppv price at the usual £12. After all, if the rationale for setting the ticket price at £20 is that this is the usual walk up price, how could they justify more than £12 for ppv?
So we can wait on Wednesday`s result. If it or the performance are pants then stay in the house and pay £12 on Saturday rather than pay full price. And see how horrifically low the attendance is. Or just don`t bother at all.
Like I said, well done lads.

Eck, I`m one who normally gives my support because I can understand how difficult a job it must be.
In terms of the footballing decisions the board makes, they never get credit for things going well but get slaughtered by everyone who has the benefit of hindsight if they don`t go well.
But this is just a blatantly bad call and with his background, the new man should know better.

Unfortunately, I can`t see it being reversed seeing as the tickets are already on sale, GG.

An absolutely shambolic decision but that`s been the trend of our season. Just another thing to add to the list of myself feeling so disconnected with the club like never before. I sit in the main stand. No way am I paying £22 to watch that lot, on top of what I`ve already given them this season for what I`ve had in return.

I`m not happy with myself that it`s come to this and I`ve decided not to attend a home match after years of never missing one. I`m so pissed off with the whole club at the moment it makes me want to spew up.


I wouldn`t imagine they`re even into double figures at this stage, Kessel and it wouldn`t be too onerous a task to refund any discount. I`m sure nobody would have batted an eyelid had we been in the promotion play offs after a good season.


You`re probably right with the double figures comment and, therefore, refund situation.

Similar with the promotion/good season one too. Unfortunately we`re the complete opposite. I could handle it if we were just utterly honking but burst a gut whilst getting beat every week. With this lot though I see no character, spirit, guts or determination at all.

Would happily pay £20 if it was the promotion playoffs, as we`re going into that process due to success on the field and there`s a bigger prize up for grabs.

Not so keen to pay and addition £20 (potentially twice) due to the teams failure on the pitch.
Not sure what the forecast drop in revenue will be if we get relegated and spend at least one season in league 1, but if it`s a lot and there`s any belief that fans giving their support from the stands makes a difference, then they should make the game cost neutral as possible (ideally make seasons tickets valid and everyone else in for a nominal amount if not free)

I don`t know what all the facts are that have made the board make this decision as I`m not party to their discussions. Others on here must be though considering were talking about facts.

One fact is that the board took the decision to drop the ticket price to a fiver for our game against Morton because that was a `crunch game`. Going by that fact they obviously don`t see the game this Saturday as a big deal.

Even ignoring the ridiculous decision regarding prices (we charged less when we were in the promotion playoffs), I’m unsure about the decisions made for playoff tickets.

Queens Park have moved away fans (usually in the same stand as home fans) so that they are behind the goal and can probably have less influence. There are games this season we have opened the East Stand. Why haven’t we decided to put the away fans in a back corner there, rather than the NE stand where they can be closer to the action? Things like that are very common in football, to get every advantage you can. I remember Hibs doing it to Rangers in playoff games. There’s been a big deal about old firm games and the smaller away allocations, all designed to maximise home advantage.

We should have reduced prices and opened the whole north stand for home fans. The NW has been selling out recently and reducing prices, to open the whole stand for home fans could have been fantastic for the team.

Instead, the board decided to follow Joe Chalmers’ lead and score an own goal.

"The first responsibility of any board of directors is to protect the financial position of their company, something few on here seem to acknowledge. I don`t think any posts have considered the financial implications of lowering the prices. I`m pretty sure the board will have though."

Two points:

1. These are additional games that wouldn`t have been in their budgets as far as ticket sales would go. The fact that season tickets don`t count will mean that any price would be additional income. We`ve routinely charged £12, £15 etc for games not on the season ticket like cup games, and only charged £15 in the promotion play off tie v Dundee Utd. And

2. I`m sure the financial implications of relegation far outweigh any small financial hit charging £15 over £20 would be (if there even would be one).

Both these points ignore that fact that families also have financial responsibility too and with the current cost of living crisis and fuel bill increases this will be a step too far for many.

JTH123, apologies for overlooking your post last night. You are the exception that proves the rule! Kelty par makes some good points too. There are of course additional costs associated with staging extra games and I suspect the club was budgeting for more prize money than we`ll get for finishing 9th in the league.

Like everyone else I don`t know all the facts which were considered in making the decision but I don`t think it would be as straightforward as many are suggesting.

Midnight tomorrow to book your seat but the club shop not open until Tuesday. Other clubs have a far better ticketing system than ours and this is without even getting into the debate about the price!

According to a statement made at a fairly recent (last 3 years) supporters` meeting at East End, the cost of stewarding is about £1 per person, and at another the cost of opening the NW was stated to be `a good few hundred pounds`.

These two statements are consistent, so even for a bg crowd and adding some margin, it can reasonably be estimated as something like £5k. Maybe a bit more for electricity and there are probably some costs I haven`t considered, but in total it probably won`t exceed £10k. If you wish, double that to £20k to be sure of covering everything releated to staging the game its self. Other things like staff for bars / hospitality should not be included, because these costs should be covered by those paying for those specific services. I don`t think you need to have worked in accounting to reasonably conclude that it is not necessary to charge full price to cover the cost of this game or games.

As Socks says, there is no need to charge FULL price in order for the club to wash it`s face over the operational costs of one additional home match.

If it is the case - then the financial situation at EEP is even more fragile than we know.

Setting a more reasonable ticket price might actually encourage a better turn out and a bigger support at a critical time - the opposite of what the proposed costs will achieve.

We`re just a £ signs to the club. Nothing more. The sad thing is, if we`re still in with a chance come Saturday I think we`ll still get a good turn out due to the passion of many of our fans. Right now, I`ve got no intention of going as I feel that as a season ticket holder I am royally shafted each year but my love of the club always ends up dragging me to the games regardless!

The board are a disgrace. It`s their fault we are where we are this season and they should be looking to get the fans onside rather than alienating them further.

As wee eck correctly says, as fans we are not privy to all the financial facts involved in running a football club, and nor are we privy to the decision-making process that led to the admission prices being charged for next Saturday.

But in the absence of such information or explanation from the club, it seems to me an extraordinary decision to set the prices so high for a play-off game that results from a season`s failure on the park by the board, management and players of the club. Football fans are remarkably resilient in continuing to support a team that continually loses matches, but their goodwill cannot be taken for granted, and once lost it is almost impossible to regain.

I hope that over the weekend those responsible will reconsider the decision, and if that is not possible then they should put MUCH lower prices in place for the final if we get that far. The stakes are enormously high.

Personally I won`t be at EEP next Saturday as I`ll be watching Barrow v Northampton (£15 for a centre stand seat ...)

Ideally we could just go back to pay at the gate - so much simpler.

What I mean is the club know they`ll get numbers regardless of what they charge, hence why they won`t make the price more appealing - even to season ticket holders. That`s the sad thing - they don`t reward fans. Thought that was pretty obvious?

Modern-day football fans are a bunch of wimps. They complain if the team doesn`t come and applaud them after away games, now they expect to be rewarded for showing loyalty to the club. I don`t get it.


So we should all just zip it and not complain about being ripped off yet again by the club? it’s mibby escaped your notice but it’s got to the point where we are only important to the board when they want something


Can always rely on wee eck to defend the club at every opportunity and criticise the fans for any dissent. If it was £100 a ticket he`d still be saying it was a fair price and there are reasons for it that we`re not privy to.

Where have I said it`s a fair price? I`ve only said we don`t know the full facts but lots of folk on here aren`t interested in facts. The way folk go on you`d think the money was going straight to the directors rather than making sure the club remains financially viable. It`s the usual lynch mob mentality on here.

The prices are high but I fail to see how it`s a rip-off? No-one is forced to go.

My main issue is with the club choosing not to allow any fans into the game in January. I've got a season ticket and they chose not to allow any of us in. The game next Saturday would've been the ideal opportunity to re-pay me and others with at the very least reduced prices.

The football product currently on offer isn`t worth the price. So with regret will give the game v Queens Park a miss. If ( and it`s a big if ) the team get through to final play-off I`ll probably attend based only on over 60 years affinity.

I have tickets for the Wednesday night game however like most on here am not surprised at pricing for Saturdays game, which at the moment I am 50/50 on attending.
The attitude from the club seems to be we know loyal fans will turn up anyway! The lock out of season ticket holder’s in January because it was a bit of hassle still has we annoyed. Which seems to be a self destructive attitude, the midweek £5 game had the best atmosphere of the season!

Has anyone been able to buy an adult and concession season ticket seat for Saturday. Just goes round in circles and says chosen seats cannot be fully booked. Midnight tomorrow to book your seat but the club shop not open until Tuesday. Other clubs have a far better ticketing system than ours and this is without even getting into the debate about the price!


Yeah, you can only book one season ticket holder’s seat per transaction. You can’t buy for family/household members at the same time. Had to pay in 6 transactions for the 6 tickets I was in charge of buying! Terrible system.

In byegone days when a lower tier club drew a higher division side in the Scottish Cup the former could raise gate prices to that of the visitors.

The details don’t disclose whether or not this is a reduction compared to normal.

What would be a real contemptuous move, would be if the club are reducing hospitality pricing but not main ticket pricing.

Instead they offer the better heeled fans a discount on hospitality .

I think it would have been a better plan to reduce the prices and help fill EEP with this being an important game. Maybe it is hoped we put this return game out of site, which to me would be foolhardy the way we have been playing off late. Come on PARS have a wee rethink. The difference that a fiver could perhaps make to a younger married fan with a family and all fans is a lot of money if you are on a tight budget.

Airdrie usual PATG price is £18 for an adult so a fairly decent reduction in prices by them.

Montrose appears to be £15 and can`t find anything on Queens Park.

They`re all in promotion playoffs though, so if any of them are charging their normal price, they`re unlikely to get much resistance on the back of a good season for their respective clubs, whereas we`re being fleeced for full price after a shocker of a season with one disaster after the next.

Queens Park usually £18. Montrose look to usually charge £15. Regardless, I’m not sure “we usually charge £20” quite justifies charging 33% and 67% more than every other team in these playoffs.

Edit to add: we charged £15 for the Premiership playoffs 4 years ago, despite league matches being £20.

Total silence from the club and they won’t budge on the prices. Poor show from all involved and considering how dire a season it’s been, £10/15 for an adult would’ve been more than enough and especially since all the club like to bang on about is wanting the fans to turn out, then stop treating fans like fools and play their part to help folk get along

The League 1 teams are fighting for promotion after a good season so they can rightly charge full price, we`re trying to avoid relegation after being dismal all season, THAT`s the difference

But you can get it for £45 now without season ticket so it is a reduction.

All season ticket holder seats are blocked off, other than the one you enter the barcode for. It doesn’t mean they’ve been sold. The issue isn’t that they have been allocated to the wrong person. The issue is, you can only buy one ST seat per transaction. A parent that has a season ticket themselves and 2 children with season tickets would have to buy those 3 tickets in 3 separate transactions.

There are posts on here and on social media where this is indeed the case. When I bought my ticket I could indeed have taken another seat belonging to another season ticket holder. Just select the seat and in you go.

Thankfully this is a bit more sensible, though the comment about full price being consistent with previous play-off campaigns is simply incorrect. The main thing, however, is that they`ve reduced prices to something a bit more sensible, which I`m pleased to see. And it`s a good thinig that a decision which was obviously wrong has been changed fairly quickly.

It definitely is possible to select a seat different from your season ticket seat, and it would be easily done if you do it quickly. Hopefully something that can be updated in teh the ticketing system at some point.

Sensible decision in the end, but I have no idea why the club has lied to us with that reasoning. In our last playoff campaign, 4 years ago, they reduced pricing to £15. So the full price decision was not ‘consistent with previous play off campaigns’

There really was no need for the stuff about being in line with previous pricing. Just admit you got it wrong and move on. Including an excuse that doesn`t stand up does nothing to change anyone`s opinion that those making these decisions are completely out of touch.

I’m beginning to think that we use Rangers PR on a retainer basis. The only difference is whilst Rangers’ petty outpourings just attract ridicule from the rest of Scottish football, DAFC goes out of its way to attract ridicule from its own fan base.
No one was expecting them to admit that ticket sales were very poor, but just stop after saying that they were going to charge the same as QP.

They still owe ST holders one for the Arbroath game though and, from me at least, it`s going to cost them more than they`ll save by not honouring that agreement or doing anything to make it right.

I emailed the club to raise the point that there is still a difference in the concessions.
£5 for under 15`s at Firhill, it`s under 12`s at East end.
Funnily enough, I never got a reply 🤷‍♂️

The flame still burns

What original thinking charging what Queens Park are charging. How about giving season ticket holders the game back that they were locked out of and getting a great atmosphere in the ground. Small cost compared to relegation.

THANK YOU DAFC, this could also ensure we get a bit more away fans attending. Like ourselves, when we travel to away games, we have our bus/petrol to pay and perhaps a snack depending on how long we are away for.
Come on folks, let`s get EEP bouncing.

Nice to see QP looking after their fans and as a reward are making the supporters bus free. Good to see the clubs that look after and appreciate their own fans.

Doesn’t help with the pricing in place for pars tv for this match. Makes it easy for family/friends to save money. Someone just buys the stream and everyone heads round to their house to watch it. In my opinion, the price of the stream should have been equal to the price of an adult ticket to help encourage more fans along to eep for such an important game.

BTW, all my family are season ticket holders and we have bought tickets

Looks like we will be lucky to break 3k for this. The pricing fiasco certainly hasn’t helped as we should have been looking to match the 5,500 at the Queens game.

With what was served up on Wednesday and the whole season in general, it’s hardly a surprise that ticket sales are low. Many folk will buy on the day and maybe waiting to see how results of first leg went too

Very poor sales so far, even in the NW for a crucial game. If we can`t get 4000+ for this something is seriously wrong with our club.

They made a mistake with pricing and that`s fine, everyone gets things wrong.

It`s the fabricated excuse about why they were set the way they were that`s aggrieved me.

If we get through tomorrow, they`d do well to announce, straight after the full-time whistle, that it`s £12 a ticket for the final.

Try and get 7,000 fans through the door and take a big support to the away game.

Yes, but there`s a relationship between attendance and the price. I reckon they`d take in as much at £12 as they would at £15. No way of knowing though.

Looks like around 1000 or so sold so far. Not that I`m counting every dot but looks along the lines of 4 to 500 in NW and desperately poor sales in Norrie.

Hopefully lots and lots of walk ups and a big old wake up call to our owners and new CEO.

I had a look as my 10 year old has decided he wants to come. I reckon over 800 sold in the NW and not much more than 300 left.

As it is, our row is sold out plus the ones in front and behind and I can`t buy him a ticket anyway as he`s under 12. Does the "Under 12 tickets cannot be purchased without an adult or concession ticket" also apply during the ST only window when you`re unable to buy more than one ticket at a time?

They`re really pulling out all the stops to encourage the next generation.

Agreed and let ST holders in free as a goodwill gesture for being locked out in January. It might even encourage some wavered to buy a ST for next season.

Update on what I said last night.

That 800+ "sold" includes ones printed off for the portacabin, which includes my row and the ones either side.
