Plymouth (H)


Recommended Posts

I would like the pricing to go the other way and pack the place out for a game which COULD have a massive influence on the rest of the season.

However, we go the other way, and because there’d be expected interest in the game; that surge pricing is used. Like booking holidays when the kids are off. 
Which is bollocks but…

Plymouth will sell their allocation and I’m sure our fans will turn out for this. It would be nice to make sure and make it a little easier on the pocket but I still expect 27.5k for this game.

I can't see them selling 3k

Disappointing yes ,but as a fan who picks and chooses games as it gets pricey with the grand kids , can I really expect them to drop prices and roll out the red carpet when I decide to go ? Probably not 

Welcome to the site DronOwl. 

A fair point, but not all are as understanding as you!

This... Should be encouraging a sell out rather than riding off the billing of it being a six pointer.

i think they will come close to selling out the away end, they will be well up for this

Late KO fucking pissing it down on TV expected our arse handing to us probably contributed to it.

I pay on the gate now on the north kop end it’s pricey with 2 bin lids in tow.

Speak to Andyben, or Reesh, I’m sure they’ll find a way of you being able to claim for it as ‘entertaining clients’ 🤣🤣

That's what their lass is doing whilst he's out.

Unfortunately lower ticket prices in general doesn’t lead to bigger crowds.

It’s not the only characteristic, as the Newcastle game showed, TV coverage, form of the team, weather etc, as has been said.

To make the most of the situation someone has put all these things together and then think about whether we want to encourage a bigger crowd but knowing there no guarantee. This potentially feels like one of those situations.

Would a bigger crowd help us, probably, would we stand a chance of a bigger crowd on the back of a run of decent results inc beating the Geordies, possibly because there is an increasing belief. There’s a degree here of both options were right but not everyone will agree.

As has been said, there will be those that will say I’m not paying that for a 3rd tier game.

Genuine question Reesh, do you think it’s because it was FA Cup and there’s a general malaise around it?

Low ticket prices have basically never worked in the last 10 years. Far too many Wednesday fans simply want to pick and choose their games then expect a discount when they can be arsed.

The whole point of variable pricing is you charge top whack for the want to see games. Our fan base are a bit dumb really when it comes to business matters, sadly living in a left wing area that is not surprising

100% sense talking. If fans can not motivate themselves for a top of table clash in league 1 unless it’s dirt cheap then we’ve got no chance against lesser opposition in this league or the one above if we get there next season.

£56 for two of us on the kop doesn't motivate me, no. It's a lot for third tier football, just my opinion. That's before I add travel, food and ale. It's a general moan at pricing in general really, not just Wednesday

I get it - I really do mate. Just curious looking at prices its only £8 less for Fleetwood in league on Saturday. 

If they had made Plymouth £20 so £16 less in total would you have felt it worth it then?

I'd be more inclined to go at £21-22 a ticket, leaves money for extra couple of pints etc, makes a difference.

So really it's the pints to ticket ratio that's an issue?

Two/four  fewer pints means it's not worth watching us play our championship rival at home.

To be fair it’s always been more enjoyable watching Wednesday half cut than sober!

Course it's an issue at four quid a pint and high ticket prices. Adds up. If you think it's good pricing for third tier football then fine, think your off your head though

But you don’t think twice at paying a rip off £4 a pint? 

Who said I pay £4 a pint, I'll drink at cheaper pubs on match day but many will pay more. Don't know why your arguing unless you think the ticket pricing even generally are right, because they're not.

Right and wrong are subjective. For what it's worth I agree it's a lot, but as I think I demonstrated, it isn't out of line with other L1 clubs, nor with other sporting events. A ticket to watch the Sheffield Steelers is £21.50 and who the fuck wants to watch ice hockey?

Me too. Detest it.  

We tried the ice hockey once, decades back, straight after a home Wednesday match. None of us ever wanted to watch it again. Plenty do: good luck to them.
