Stoke Fans Get Reward On Season Ticket Prices

Football News 24/7
Stoke City are freezing season ticket prices for the fifth successive year.The club are holding prices at their current levels across the board as a 'thank you' to fans for their support ... and in recognition that many of them may have been hit by the country's worsening economic problems.

The decision to freeze prices again means supporters will be paying exactly the same to watch the Potters next term as they did in 2008/09, the club's debut season in the Premier League.

The tickets go on sale on March 6 and the cheapest deals are available until the "Early-Bird" deadline on March 30.

Chief executive Tony Scholes said the club wanted football at Stoke to be affordable for as many supporters as possible.

He added: "You could make a case for a price rise because of the quality that people are watching and the fact our wage bill has gone up exponentially to bring in international calibre players.

"We are also playing against some of the best teams in the world.

"Our season tickets are already among the cheapest in the Premier League, cheaper than West Brom and Wolves for example.

"However, like everyone else, we are aware of the economic plight and the fact people have to make sacrifices.

"We are determined to keep top level football as affordable as possible."

Stoke sold a club record 22,000 season tickets for the current campaign, including half-season tickets.

Scholes said prices had also been frozen to help ensure Tony Pulis's side get as much support as possible at the Britannia Stadium again.

He explained: "You succeed primarily because of your home results across a season and so sell-outs are very important to us.

"But we are aware of what people have had to spend to follow us in the cups.

"This is the third year in a row we have been in the FA Cup quarter-finals and we have also had a European adventure.

"That has been magnificent, but it has cost money.

"Our support once again has been superb, and this decision is a 'thank-you' for that and also a recognition of the difficult economic conditions."
