ALFRETON Town have announced season ticket prices for the 2011/12 season, their first ever Blue Square Bet Premier Division campaign.
Prices for individual home league games will now be £13 for adults, £7 concessions (senior citizens and children 15 and under who are non Junior Reds members) and £33 for a family ticket.
It is understood Alfreton’s individual and season ticket prices will be the cheapest in the entire division, and with 23 home league games next season compared to 20 in the title-winning campaign, the season ticket represents fantastic value.
As usual, supporters can make big savings by purchasing their tickets early and this year’s discount deadline is June 30, for example, a family season ticket would save a massive 37 per cent on individual admission prices per game over the season.
If purchased before the June 30 discount deadline, season ticket prices will be £229 for adults (aged 16 upwards), £123 for concessions (senior citizens and children 15 and under who are non Junior Reds members) and £584 for a family ticket which is two adults and two children aged 15 and under.
After the deadline, season ticket prices will rise to £243 for adults, £140 for concessions and £608 for a family ticket.
The club will again be issuing the popular ten-game tickets which are priced at £110 adults and £65 concessions before June 30 after which they rise to £120 for adults and £70 concessions. These enable fans to attend any ten home league games of their choosing throughout the season.
Regular season ticket holders will receive a renewal form from the club through the post over the next week or so but anyone wishing to pre-book or make new applications can pay by credit card by contacting Lisa Towerzey on 01159 392090 extension 107.
Young fans can also save on individual admission by joining the Junior Reds club. Membership for the season is just £5 which admits children 15 and under into each home game for just £2 per match so long as they are accompanied by a full paying adult.
Alfreton Town Football Club are holding an official end-of-season dinner/dance to celebrate the team winning the Blue Square Bet North title.
This will be held at the Boundary at South Normanton on Friday, May 27th with a three-course meal, DJ and comedy act included in the price of the tickets which are £20 each.
