Season Ticket Price Increase!!!.

QPR have just sent me a letter today informing of their seson ticket prices for 2008/09.

Where i sit this season was about £400.Next season will be £599.

Even a season's car park pass is £300 per car!!.

How they can justify a 50% increase is beyond me.If we had been promoted into the Premiership i could have understood it with increased spending on players.But this is a complete rip off.

No wonder Briatore,Ecclestone and Mittal are Billionaires.

    aye i wont disagree it is hard to fill up when the town only has a population of about 10 but we still manage to beat any team in the premiership on our day.

    if newcastle could stick with a manager for more than 5 minutes they could go far

    the toon are one of the most underachieving clubs in the leagues with a fan base like theirs

    too many "big" names; players who overrate themselves

    alan amith is one of the worst newcastle players i have seen and that is saying something!

    They can justify it by the fact that you are going to pay it. Only one way to stop it, stay home on Saturdays, and make it known that you won't be messed about with in this way.

    But I bet you don't. In which case expect more of the same every year

    Not sure i wil pay it actually.Because of the hours i work mid-week games are a bit of a pain for me really.Have to book a days holiday or plead with the boss to work day shift.Sometimes says no.May just go to Saturday games.Played 7 or 8 mid-week last season.

    Where i sit was £23 last season.This season will be £30.So,15 Saturday games at £30 a go is still £150 saved.

    its the same with Nottingham Forest, complete rip off. Less & less ppl are going now a days, and ppl i know with season tickets in the past just cant afford to carry on paying for them. The clubs are shotting themselfs in the foot tbf. Believe it or not you i went to watch Man U vs Arsenal last year and the ticket was cheaper than a standard forest match, and Forest are/were in Division 3!

    You could get a season ticket at Wigan (2007/08) for £250.Even Blackburn and Aston Villa were under £400.How lower league teams can charge what they do is crazy.But so are the fans for paying it.

    We are meant to be removing 300 fans seats so they can extend the Director's Box.

    They have to get that money back somehow,as all those seats are taken up by season ticket holders.

    My brother and Dad had season tickets for Saints as long as I can remember and when they changed stadiums, they made a big song and dance about prices staying the same, then the next year there was a massive hike. I know of a dozen who all sat together for twenty odd years who instantly stopped - they all meet up and go occasionally but have all decided it was a waste of money in the end, especially when there was no discount on away matches tickets.

    Plus with how crap saints have been doing none of them seem to bother anymore at all? Have they gone down again?

    nobody is forcing a gun to your head, its a choice you can make.

    the club obviously wants to raise the kitty to improve the clubs crap position and playing staff alike

    They won 3-2 on the last day to stay up,and Leicester went down instead.

    Leicester are managed by our ex-manager.

    I've never been a footie fan and could never really understand the ritual, although I did understand their passion for it as I have passion for other sports - I just got fed up with 95% of conversation in my household surrounding football.

    Oh well, I'm home in a couple of weeks, at least the conversation wont be about how saints were robbed lol.
