Pledge 5000? STs sold latest

Recommended Posts

I said right from the onset that I thought we’d sell 3500-3800 ST’s and still think that. People will turn up in greater numbers if the football is entertaining and/or the team is winning. Neither of these things have happened for three years. People should also consider our likely finishing position in the table - many suggest we’ll finish mid table at best.

Thank you so much for boiling down my post!

As English is not my native tongue and I have a kind of picturesque way of speaking, sometimes my point gets a bit lost in translation :wink:

 

Oh right. "Go and play on the motorway you ****" which you posted on here the other day when someone said something along the lines of stop moaning must have a very different meaning in the original Danish then.

I don’t count corporate boxes or VP’s. Not sure where you got 3000 from but the bloke in the ticket office on Friday told me we’d sold around 2300 when I was renewing. There does seem a positive vibe around the place so let’s hope the translates into ST sales.

I think 3500-3750 would be a decent amount.Was the instalments method of paying scrapped?I normally use that but waited until the takeover in May instead.Last week of the EB rates and reclaiming your seat should see a bit of a surge.UTV.

Anything north of 3500 will be decent. Let's face it, we're all delighted to have new owners but you can't erase the memory of the absolute dross we've been served up for 3 straight season overnight. Punters will, understandably, be looking to see some progress on the pitch before committing more financially. Obviously it;'s a chicken and egg situation and some fans will stump up to back the new project, but you can;t expect another 2000 to come forward out of blind faith.

I’d say 3500 ish is realistic. Sign a couple of decent players then that could rise. As mentioned above the previous dire football in past seasons will still have big baring in many.

500 in the last week is pretty decent going. We're into the last week of the month now and payday for a good number of people.

Good to see late opening Thursday and Friday.

Very surprised they're closed on Sunday 30th, the last day of the early bird discount.

I personally do not see what the big deal is about season tickets as a fan will pay more to pay on the day if what is on the pitch is worth watching so for example if we beat Burton then draw say Aston Villa in the league cup and manage beat them with a Everton type performance then folk will not want miss Pope Bennett and co taking to the field .

If however the lifeless lot who took to the field on many home occasions take to the field then they better sell as many season tickets as possible because no one will pay watch rubbish.

 

You are right Season tickets are money in the bank whatever the season then pans out like. However a good number sold may give the owners more confidence when spending money on new signings /playing budget before we kick off. Getting mine tomorrow.

Oops my mistake.

They are open Sunday 10-4.

Get yourselves down there😄

 

Great back from Croatia late Saturday night so will show my support for the Vale by getting the lad is season ticket on the Sunday.

Hope they sell 3000 as that be a really good amount considering what’s been served up over a number of very poor campaigns.

I think the figure at close of play on Friday was 3,075. Two days to go and as you say it doesn't include VPs or boxes that I think have all gone.

Last year we'd sold around 2800 by the end of June and 2900 the year before so with 48 hours to go and the "posh" seats selling out we should - hopefully - be pushing upwards from 3500 and maybe towards the magic 4000 but I don't want to run before I can walk. Suffice to say, after the three worst consecutive seasons we ever had in our history, this is splendid and very welcoming good news.

I'm as pleased for the new owners as I am for the fans as they've taken a huge gamble, put their faith in Burslem, and their money where their mouth is. Delighted for them.

Anyone wavering still - get up there and buy into the new era! Two days and counting...

Remember that you can also buy/renew season tickets over the phone. 01782 655821 I've just renewed 2 from the comfort of my back garden.
