View Full Version : Why no price reduction on Palace tickets?

I thought every club had been given a sum of money in order to offset the cost of away tickets/travel?

And I thought they were to spend it how they see fit?

Some clubs reduce away ticket prices, some subsidise travel or others on tarting up their away end.

200k Isn't going to get you very far is it?

From what I understand, Swansea tickets came down from 35 to 25 through this fund. 1,000 tickets at 10 each, meaning we used 10,000 of the fund.

With a 2,500 allocation, if that is the case, if we were to subsidise each ticket by 7, we could bring the price down to 25 again, by using 17,500 of the fund.

We would still have only used 27,500 of the 200,000 we have been given. But maybe it is being used for bigger allocations like Man U or Newcastle.

The southern based Clarets will be out in force for that one and they can afford the ticket prices so it's best using the fund for other away games.

32 is pretty reasonable anyway, it cost that to watch Burnley at times last season. Probably fairer to save the reductions for more expensive ones.

I'd imagine they're saving some of the funding to subsidise the more expensive games even more...
Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, West Ham etc

32 isn't bad going considering I paid that to watch us get beat 4-0 by Cardiff a couple seasons back.

The price was reduced for Swansea because the two clubs have agreed a deal. There was never going to be a reduction at Palace.

Claret78's post re "southern Clarets" is one of the most classic pieces of stereotyping I have ever read XD

I thought that too St. Albans!

What a patronising attitude. Do some of these "Northern" fans not realise how much more money we have to spend on things like heating our swimming pools and gravelling our long drives.

As a southerner and a non season ticket holder I just hope I can get a ticket!

Stereotyping but true. I'd be interested to hear how many working Clarets based I and around London are on under 20k.

I'd go, but its not easy living in the grim north, being down the pit 24/7.

'I'd be interested to hear how many working Clarets based I and around London are on under 20k.'

I'd be interested to hear how many Clarets based in and around London have bought a 3 bed house for 70k.

Sorry let me rephrase. The average person in London and the south east has more disposable income. Apologies for any offence caused!!
