Brighton and Hove Albion have announced an increase in cost of a season ticket at The Amex for the 2017/18 season regardless of what division the club are playing in.
The “slight” increase will be of around 2-5% on this years prices depending on where you sit in the stadium. That is of course based on there being 23 home games. Which means that, should we finally achieve the dream of Premier League football and there are only 19 games, it is in reality an increase of around 18-20% – or one fifth more – for top flight football.
The rest of the details are pretty much the same as every year. The brilliant interest free direct debit scheme remains in place and if you are signed up for that your season ticket will renew automatically. It will also effectively work out at just a couple of quid more per payment. Basically, have one less £1.99 Magners in Wetherspoons per month and you’ve covered it.
Subsidised travel continues to be included within the relevant travel zone which admitedley can be seen as being as worthwhile as buying a pair of trainers for a bloke with one leg given Southern Rail and the unions incompetence. And for those who pay the price in one lump sum, you have until March 5th to renew.
Anybody wishing to become a new season ticket holder for 2017-18 is being advised by the club to join the membership scheme which opens on February 21st and offers you place on the waiting list, no doubt for a “small” fee.
Full details are of course available on the clubs official website, where they are very keen to hammer home the generosity of next seasons pricing as opposed to the potential of paying 20% more for a season ticket in the Premier League. Yeah, that one with a £100m+ television deal in place.
