SEASON TICKETS BUY NOW - Affordable football at FC

FC United season tickets for the 2013/14 season are now on sale and supporters can order them on line, by phone or through the post.

Once again this year, our members have voted for a ‘pay what you can afford’ season ticket scheme, under which supporters get to place their own value on the price of a season ticket. The response to this scheme over the past four seasons has been excellent and the campaign has been an undoubted success, empowering supporters to take collective responsibilities for the finances of the club, recognising that some supporters were feeling the financial pinch, whilst others may be able to pay a little more.

Season ticket sales are crucial to the club as they enable us to budget more prudently and with more confidence and the income generated allows FC United to continue its policy of affordable football for all by maintaining the same gate price of £8 Adults, £5 concessions and £2 under 18s which we have done since 2009. This is something of which we are justifiably proud and something which we believe is unique at any level of the game.

Supporters will understand that we cannot afford to give season tickets away and like all clubs we need a degree of security so a minimum price for adults and concessions of £90 is requested. Next season the Northern Premier League is being expanded to 24 teams, which means an additional two home matches so we are therefore asking supporters to take this into account when deciding what to pay and to make a donation on top of the minimum price (see guide prices below). A small increase from each season ticket holder on what they paid last season will have a huge impact on the club’s finances and enable us to maintain and improve our club structure as we go into our new ground.

Also, as an added bonus, we pledge that season ticket holders for the 2012/13 and/or 2013/14 season will be guaranteed a season ticket when we get to our new ground. Whilst the number of season tickets put on sale for the new ground has yet to be determined, the number will be limited by the need to retain a number of pay-on-the-gate admissions and away fans.

Details and guide prices for 2013/14 season tickets

- Season Tickets cover 23 home league games but do not include cup or play-off games.
So, 23 matches at £8 (adult gate price) equates to £184.00.

- Concession for the over 60s/unwaged will be the same as the £90 minimum for all adults, which is equivalent to £3.92 per match. Those supporters in this category are invited to make a further donation, if affordable.
So, 23 matches at £5 (concession gate price) equates to £115.00.

- The minimum price for Under 18s season tickets will remain at £21, equivalent to only £0.92 per match.
So, 23 matches at £2 (under 18s gate price) equates to £46.00.

In order to help us plan and budget effectively for the new season, we also would ask supporters to consider purchasing their season ticket as soon as possible.
