Stoke have proven once again that they are leading the way in keeping football affordable in the top flight by announcing they are keeping the price of their season tickets frozen for the TENTH successive year which when you factor in inflation is effectively a price drop.

Also, eight to 11-year-olds from the City 7s scheme can get in the family area free with an accompanying adult.

"The idea of increasing Season Card prices for the 2017/18 season never once came into our thinking. We have a loyal fan base and keeping Season Card prices at the same level they were when we entered the Premier League is our way of thanking our supporters for their backing, as well as encouraging the next generation of football fans to make Stoke City their club."

Bargain.

Price drop? It can also be interpreted as unnecessary high charges for the the last 10 years.

They are getting a lot more income from TV revenue so that doesn't equate.

Not my team either but fair play to them for keeping premiership football affordable to those who want to go along.

A shrewd move I think, like a lot of clubs outside the big six, nobody is ever going to support them who doesn't have a connection to the area they are based in. So they need to look after and nurture these fans.

Ah, so the revenue has moved from physical attendance to penalising those that are armchair bound. Sounds reasonable.
Rhetoric aside, the concept is respected.

Do you also get free medical treatment for the stiff neck you'll get from watching Stoke's notorious long ball game?

So they're keeping the price of season tickets frozen....... presumably they're also going to try and freeze their position in the league table, their haul of silverware etc ?
Rather like my comments on the Bradford ticket prices recently, this is great for those who live in the area, but is highly unlikely to appeal to anyone living in Thailand or Hungary, as well as Edinburgh Plymouth and so on.
Poorly supported if at all outside their catchment area so please have your limited dreams and enjoy.

They have got the good sense to realise that gate receipts are (and should be) a minor income stream, with far more revenue coming from TV, sponsorship, and merchandising.

Football has already been changed beyond recognition to the detriment of fans (basically subscription TV (which rapes the common supporter) and billionaire investors looking to monetise everything and flooding the game with money (pushing up player wages etc).

It's good to see a club recognising that they can still coin it in from the TV money and develop the club, but not stitch up their loyal fans by chucking season ticket prices into the seemingly endless pot of ways to drag every last penny out of the common fan. This has got nothing to do with recruiting Thai supporters, it has to do with recognising the place the club has in the local community and repaying the debt to those people who enabled the club to become what it was before the days of TV and sponsorship billions - had the community not supported the club with their gate receipts then, the club would not exist now.

Football would be a better game, more honest and giving better recognition to why the game exists in the first place, if more clubs did this sort of thing.

Of course, whether you think £300 to watch Stoke play is a bargain or not, is another question entirely!

Wigan's pricing used to be class.

I thought they'd be higher... I think they'd be higher if the table showed 2006-2011 though, in fairness.

Oh dear!

Have to say Stoke have led the way in recent years in looking after their fans. Freezing ticket prices, away travel and the City 7s scheme is excellent.

Frozen...yes you will be...

Clearly you have no idea on the HUKD concept

Low price for prem football, heat added. Although no offence to the Staffordshire demographic but majority of the area would never be able to afford London season ticket prices. I can also cite from personal experience that the Britannia can be flippin freezing as it sits on a hill........

Hah...yes, fair point. I was just thinking of Stoke generally, not specifically in the prem :)
