Rovers reveal ticket offer

First published in Sport

BLACKBURN Rovers fans can pick up an early Christmas present – with 2012-13 Half Season Tickets now on sale.

The 11-game package starts with the Nottingham Forest fixture on New Year’s Day and also includes the high-profile visits of Burnley, Blackpool and Leeds United to Ewood Park.

Adult tickets start from £149 in the Riverside, Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End and Bryan Douglas Darwen End stands – the equivalent of less than £14 per game.

Prices for Juniors (£49) and Young Adults (£89) have been frozen from last season, in keeping with the owners’ commitment of making football as affordable as possible for the club’s young fans.

The second half of the season will hopefully see Rovers pushing for the automatic promotion places in the Championship.

The season tickets are on sale now from the Roverstore (Ewood Park), Oneroverstore (Blackburn town centre), via the www.onerovers.co.uk website or by ringing 0871 2221444.

Adults can also spread the cost over three months with a direct debit scheme.

....I'm keeping my options open and will still pay match by match. I'll buy a season ticket when Venkeys put their house in order and I can see the club is being run properly.
The January transfer window will give them ANOTHER chance (how many do they need ) to show they have the best interests of the club at heart.
Up to now they have failed miserably.

What a set of plonckers they are. If they really want the fans back then offer them at half the price not add on a premium. Half price and I'll buy otherwise forget it. Has anyone there got a commercial brain, they mess up the club then offer a half season ticket at more than half the cost?

£149 for the better half of the seasons games which includes Burnley, Blackpool? I think you will find the cost of attending 4 or 5 games would add up to that price. Get em bought people!

A good point well made...but it may still induce a few fans to buy and come back into the fold. Don't think we will ever get anything like last seasons 'early bird' offer, that was a one-off I think. But this half-season ticket deal should be a little cheaper if (maybe 12 quid a game?) if they really want to get more than a few fans back.

Roverholic is right... The actual game week prices are set due to the popularity of the fixture. People would want to watch lets say a Burnley home game as opposed to Bristol, so the prices would be set at maybe £25 average for Burnley and then £17 average for Bristol. The accumulative price over a season would be likely to be on average (including cheap games at about £10) to be around £18. When season tickets are priced, or half season tickets.. They have to look at the fixture list and the 'set prices', then make a decision at a fair reduced average price.

To say we have 3 games coming up that would probably be at least £65 to watch you should then look at the other 8 games being more of an average of 10.50 a game.

149 - 65 = 84
84 / 8 = £10.50

Does that sound a better deal people?? Get down and support your team!! Or don't.... But don't come on here moaning about prices and putting off other potential customers wanting to return, or even start coming down as a new hobby!!

The prices for three quarters of the ground are spot on - any cheaper and those already with season tickets would complain - but still an absolute bargain for the key last 11 games of the season with the games against dingles, seasiders and dirtyleeds included.

HOWEVER - the club have totally messed up with the pricing for JW centre - the price is nearly DOUBLE that of the cheaper stands BUT at the moment is is the JW stand that is nearly empty.

I am not going to renew my tickets in this area and will move to a different stand. I suspect many others will do the same.

Result - well occupied three quarters of the ground and JW with vast empty spaces.

One thought - is this a mistake by the club, or a clever ruse that will make Ewood look packed out to TV audiences?

yeah because why would you pay nearly £100 more a season to see the same game as someone in the riverside? doesn't make sense to me. it's been like that for years too.

Those paying match by match are probably paying more than ST holders when match tickets are twice those that ST holders have paid so I dont think thats a valid reason. There arent going to be big fast changes with Venkys so you either choose to support the manager and team or you acknowledge you just dont want to go to every game.

Tell him to read the article and then you would have no need to explain over and over again to the Dingles. But then he probably wouldn't understand it anyway.
I hate to agree with the Burnley fan but he has a point. If its not about the money and its about Venkys attitude why would cheaper tickets make any difference? There are too many fans on here making contradictory arguments and changing the goal posts each week. I like most wanted Kean out. He's out and Iv bought ST and fully backed Eric Black and now HB regardless of what else is going on in the background.By pricing the half season tickets as they have, they are rewarding those who renewed at the beginning of the season. Im not saying thats the right thing. You just have to decide. If you cant support the club at the moment, theres nothing wrong with that so admit it and dont blame the ticket prices.

Hi Merlin. If you're referring to me I'm sorry but I don't get your drift.
As a season ticket holder for many years, I didn't get one this time due to Venkys and the club being turned up onto it's head since they arrived.
I boycotted the home games (but went to some away ) until Kean had gone, but returned as I said I would.
I have decided to pay match by match, at greater cost than season ticket prices and have attended all home games since Kean left.
I prefer to keep my options open, and that is my right, until I see Venkys start doing the decent thing and doing their best for this club.
I'm not complaining about what I pay and I am "supporting the club at the moment."

The fact that the Jack Walker stand is nearly empty tells it's own story.
The fact that David Dunn has to lower himself to ringing people up to renew their season ticket tells another.....

its peoples choice and prerogative whether to attend matches or not. My view is that the club has turned corner, manyy were extremely sceptical on this forum when we entered to buy Rhodes and Etuhu, some laughed it off. They were proven wrong. Venkys have started putting house in order and the team are playing much better since Berg has been the manager.
Agreed, I'm 100% behind Berg and the team but still highly sceptical of Venkys.
These so called comments sections are just being used as a continuous PR exercise to back the unwanted Berg and sell tickets. The fact is....if the syndicate had not mismanaged the club in the first place, then they wouldn't need to be as desperate as they are on here...and could stick to working on fitness and tactics at Brockhall!!

yeah because why would you pay nearly £100 more a season to see the same game as someone in the riverside? doesn't make sense to me. it's been like that for years too.
Maths not your strong point.

Central JW is £130 more for HALF a season than the riverside - equivalent to £260 pounds a season NOT £100.
