Sales up on the same stage 12 months ago
ALBION are delighted to announce that season-ticket sales for 2012/13 have passed the 18,000-mark.
The club made significant reductions to prices for the forthcoming Barclays Premier League campaign and this has prompted an increase in the number of season tickets sold compared to the same stage 12 months ago.
The Baggies cut prices, and revamped their pricing structure, in a bid to make Hawthorns matches more accessible for the next generation of supporters and this has led to a boost in sales of Junior and Young Adult season tickets.
Season tickets remain on general sale and with the Premier League opener at home to Liverpool still three weeks away, chief executive Mark Jenkins is encouraged by the loyalty shown by fans during tough financial times.
“The response of the supporters has again been terrific,” he said.
“We had around 18,000 season ticket holders at the start of last season so to have reached that figure already is pleasing. With the economic climate becoming increasingly tough, we feel our decision to introduce big reductions has been vindicated by the loyalty our supporters have shown.”
Adult prices have been reduced across the board for 2012/13 by £50 and start at only £349.
The first of two 'age category' changes has seen the Junior bracket extended from under-16s up to under-17s, with prices reduced by up to £30 – starting at only £99.
The Young Adult age range has also been extended from under-18s up to under-21s, with prices reduced by up to £70 – starting at only £199. These prices are also available to all Students. Last season's prices for Seniors offered great value compared to adult prices and have been frozen for 2012/13, starting from £269.
All of the above prices are available if purchased online. They include a discount of up to £10 compared to applications made in person, by phone or post.
Once again, the club are not charging a booking fee for season ticket applications** and to help supporters spread their payment, a new direct debit option is available. Last season's adult prices have been frozen for supporters who choose to pay via this ten-month payment plan.
A nine-month interest free payment option is also available to anyone who purchases a season ticket with an Albion Mastercard.
