Admission prices 2019/2020 season
Joint statement from Stand By Your Saints and The Saints City Trust regarding the 2019/2020 price increases at St Albans City Football Club.
Stand By Your Saints and the Saints City Trust wish to make it clear that we strongly oppose the new ticket pricing structure, believing that it will have a detrimental effect on both fans and match day revenue.
Members of both organizations met with Lawrence Levy and Leigh Page to discuss the proposed pricing structure for the coming season. In addition to expressing significant concerns regarding the proposals, we put suggestions to the club whereby revenue could be increased and savings on outlay made without increasing match day prices.
We are all grateful to the owners for the commitment they show by underpinning the running costs of the club. But we fear that the huge contribution a family club can make to the community, making match days accessible to all fans, will be undermined by the price increases.
We acknowledge that discounts are available for those who are able to buy in advance on line but this will still exclude groups of people, often the very people we would like to welcome to Clarence Park. The revenue raised on match days via the club shop, ground raffle and bar takings will, we believe, will be impacted on by the admission price increase.
In summary neither organization supports the new pricing structure and we urge the football club to reconsider this matter.
