With this in mind, due to a low vote count (18% of overall voter pool), we’ve decided to present an alternative model for eligible supporters to vote on.
We think you will agree that, to consider a vote a ‘majority vote’, it needs to be more than a fifth of people voting overall.
Given that the 2015/16 pricing structure was the last concession model the Club had prior to Zonal pricing, we have decided to offer a structure based on that season’s ticketing model.
To combat ticket fraud, which has always been our primary concern and the reason why we proposed Zonal pricing in the first place, here’s how we propose we would re-implement this structure:
1. Every individual membership would require photo ID in order to receive the membership card (memberships are non-transferrable). You can only have one membership assigned to each supporter.
2. For match by match tickets, we are presenting two revised options for how you can purchase match by match tickets:
1: We will be introducing a ‘Pay As You Go’ style Membership card (PAYG) where you will need to collect your card with photo ID, as per the membership cards (one card assigned per supporter, non-transferrable). Also, a one-off £15 admin charge will be applied. You will then be able to load match tickets onto this card.
2: Alternatively, for those who would prefer not to register for a Pay as You Go style membership card, you will only be able to buy fixed price match by match tickets and these will be at an elevated price (with no concession option). See pricing structure.
With the above proposed model:
Please note: We will eventually be introducing photo cards which will replace the existing membership cards, these will be implemented once we are able to get the new technology up and running. Announcements will follow in due course.
We really do want to hear from you on this one, so to encourage you to vote and have your say, we have decided to create a prize draw for those who register their vote. A whole host of prizes, including some unique experiences, will be revealed when the vote goes live.
The vote will be open for a further 2 weeks and will go live from:
Thursday 5th April at 10am and will close on Thursday 19th April at 10am.
If you are eligible to vote, you will be able to vote:
Communication of the vote will be via Club website, email and SMS (text message).
