All Checkatrade Trophy Matches at Luton Town Football Club are priced £5 per adult, but great news is Kids go FREE - All areas of the ground same prices. It's a great way to get kids interested in local football, plus maybe see some of the premier league players of the future.

Including this in your blurb seems a bit silly to me: "plus maybe see some of the premier league players of the future".

People are boycotting because of the inclusion of PL teams, so trying to use that as a selling point seems daft.

Its a way to encourage children to get involved in football, its cost nothing for the kids, and you never know who you may see playing for Under 23 Premier League Team, that one day, COULD, be a Premier League Player.

Don't knock the competition, this used to be the Johnstone Paint Trophy which Luton won a few years ago, taking 40,000 fans to Wembley. It gives lower league teams the opportunity to test themselves, possibly against potential premier league players of the future.
£5 a pop for Adults , and Kids go free its great way for the sponsors to encourage you to see your local league team play too, unless your in Scotland, NI or Republic! Plus further you go in the competition, the attendances increase and opportunity to play at Wembley for the Finalists.

I'm an Oxford fan mate - I was there at Wembley earlier this year, so there's no need to preach to me about lower league football, or the JPT. This isn't the JPT, though.

The problem is with the revised format and how it could potentially damage lower league football. Read up about #BTeamBoycott or Against League 3 and see why so many fans feel passionately about it. Which is why I remarked about the Premier League comment. It seems silly to highlight the reason that a lot of people are boycotting games as a selling point. That's all I was saying.

I do agree that getting kids involved at a young age is important to the lifeblood of a club, especially lower league clubs. I think under 7's tickets are a fiver for us. Bargain!

hot price.

This competition needs boycotting

That's exactly why this is a great competition, it gives lower league teams a realistic chance of reaching a Wembley final, the introduction of Premier League U23 teams makes this less likely and devalues the competition.

Having said that it is a good deal but I can't bring myself to vote hot for something which I think is damaging to lower league football.

Boycotting because of PL teams ... if only - firstly it's their U21 teams and secondly all the top PL teams opted out so they had to add championship teams - we (Bristol Rovers) got Reading U21s. Result attendance was 1600 compared to over 3000 for 1st round vs Wycombe last year and 10,000 for both previous two league one games (and even 4500 for preseason friendly vs Aston Villa). Hopefully this is just a one year experiment which will be quietly abandoned.
