NIGEL Clough has hailed the season ticket price-freeze for the cub’s most loyal fans as a “brilliant gesture”.Club chairman Ben Robinson has announced that there will no increase in prices for existing season ticket holders who renew by April 18.
Now the Brewers manager has said: “It’s a brilliant gesture, especially as we don’t know what league we will be in next season. To make the offer when we have the chance to be in the Championship and you could pay the same as League Two, well I’m not sure there are many clubs in the country that would offer that gesture.
“I hope it makes some headlines in the national newspapers as well as we have had some negative stories about clubs charging probably too much - certainly at the highest level - for supporters to watch football.
“There is so much money coming in from television and other income streams but we have to remember that without the supporters there is nothing. You can stream matches across the world wherever you want but if the stadiums are half full it won’t be the same product.
“There is an argument that we should be charging much less now for supporters to watch the game live in view of everything else that’s coming in, for the teams at the highest level certainly.
“Players are earning enough money to take a little cut and pass that back to supporters.
“At Burton Albion I think our supporters recognise what a great deal this is. We will try as hard as we can to get in the Championship but I hope whatever league we are in they will come and support us.”
For the second year in a row, Albion fans who take advantage of this earlybird offer will see no increase in the price they pay to follow the Brewers - regardless of what division the club is in next season.
That means that those who renew before the deadline of April 18 could be enjoying Championship football for the same price they paid to watch the Brewers in League Two.
Fans can renew at the same price as last season in all categories. That means that if they took advantage of the 2015/2016 earlybird price they can benefit again from the same great value.
Fans who bought season tickets after the earlybird cut off for 2015/16 will have their renewal frozen at that price.
Both renewal deals will offer considerable savings on full season ticket prices for new buyers - with prices to be announced at a later date.
The same fixed price offer applies to Vice Presidents and car park passes have also been frozen at last year’s prices for all those renewing.
Fans can renew their season tickets on line starting from 9am on Monday, March 21. The deadline for renewals is Monday, April 18 at 5pm.
Any fans with questions regarding the renewal offer can call in at the club shop at the Pirelli Stadium or can ring 01283 565938.
