Cup games

Cup games this week and a question. Does anyone know for the season ticket holders what is the entrance fees? Is it free with a ST? Does everyone pay or us there a discount for ST holders?
Aled

Entry to the Foster's Challenge Cup will be set at the existing entry prices and therefore will be all pay.

The club set the season ticket prices low to cover the league games only before the full fixture list was available in order to sell the early bird tickets that is of obvious benefit our supporters.

Entry is £10 adults, £8 concessions and FREE for Under 16's.

Surely the club should give season ticket holders half price or a tidy discount for the cup games Aberavon usually do this. Come on
Guys we need to think logically and try and improve the crowds and we need to get around the local schools with the cup and give all the school kids freebies try and get a player in there too

We set our season tickets at £75 (or £70 for early bird) before this cup was even mentioned, which is why it only includes League games.

As for Aberavon, you can't really compare it, as they charge £110 for their season tickets, we only charge £75.

The Swalec Cup, and some players,  went to quite a few schools at the end of last season, but it would be a good idea to visit some more before the Swalec Cup begins again, to raise some interest, but this is a different cup competition.

All the schoolkids already get free entry, entry is always free to all children under 16.

hi jarred . you were saying we should give the children freebees. well where have you been Ronnie ensures all the mascots get given two photos one before being mascot and the second after they run out with team. Ronnie has also given every child that comes to the game a small packet of sweets. I think the regular visitors under 16 like this little gesture but you will have to ask the children concerned. sorry if it sounds like I am blowing my own trumpet but what else would you like Ronnie to do for the children. signed Ronnie Raven

I think the question as to whether season ticket holders should get a discount for these cup games rather depends how the club is going to approach the games.  Are we going to field a weakened side to give squad players a run out?  In which case it will be hard to justify the full price entry....or are we going to give the competition a proper go?

Maw- firstly not mentioned ronnie once this was mainly to due with prices like fletcher said

Mike Hook has put together some words for the website on our approach to the tournament - http://bit.ly/1LbybbR

The maths is quite simple

Take the Aberavon example brought up above and lets assume they let season ticket holders in free for their Fosters cup games (Which may or may not be the case)

Bridgend Season ticket £75
3 home Fosters games £10 each - £30
Total cost £105

Aberavon season tick £110
3 home Fosters games £0???
Total Cost £110

So without offering any discounts etc Bridgend are £5 cheaper. Savings are even better if Aberavon are charging season ticket holders a discounted price for the Cup games.
fletcher

Im surprised at the Aberavon numbers as for a long time they were the only club in our division who kept the field admission price at £8 long after every other club had put it up to £10.  Not sure but could it be that the £110 season ticket price is for their grandstand? Ive read Mike Hooks comments on the competition and I wish the youngsters all the best for the next few weeks.....who knows, perhaps our opponents will also field weakened teams?..... but I will not be paying a tenner to watch.
johnsy

Just seen the team announcement.  Full price admission ? Mmmmmm ...
jarrad

In aberavon rfc now and season tickets were £80 for field and free to all cup games including swalec cup. Surely the club should be giving discounted tickets for this cup as we are fielding a weak team.
fletcher

thats exactly my point jarrad....I have no problems with the coach giving squad players a run out in this cup whilst at the same giving some first team players a rest.  Nor am I particularly bothered about what Aberavon may or may not be charging for admission to these cup games.  I just think that this would have been a good opportunity for our club to say thanks to those season ticket holders who paid out money at a time when we had lost half a team and did not appear to show any interest in replacing them.  Im not talking about free entry here....a fiver discount would have been nice.  Its not the money....its the thought that counts!  I am disappointed and as I have said, will not be going.

Hmmmm, let's talk absolutes rather than assumption, shall we - wouldn't want to be accused of lying now??

And also let's confirm whether we are actually picking our own side or are we playing O's castoffs -if O's castoffs, all Bridgend fans should view for free!!

'Nuff said - end of!!
jarrad

Would be nice fletcher il be there regardless of prices just think the club could/should have given season ticket holders £5 entry or something

Comparing like for like my post stands you can't compare a field only ticket with an all areas ticket. No assumptions no lying.

I was there yesterday and paid the £10 to watch the game but left bewildered. It wasnt quite a squad players team but the majority and felt i had been robbed.
Now im all for bringing in the crowds but they are not going to turn up watching games like this. The board need to think of or do something to entice people in and i am afriad that there seems to be a lack of ideas.
Was it a case of they couldnt, or wouldnt do something for the cup games especially for season ticket holders?
Is this the same for league games.

On the subject of this, why cant they offer something like this:
Season ticket holder has the chance to bring a friend. The club say, if you, as a season ticket holder purchase a friend ticket by the wednesday before the home league game, you get this for £7. The friend turns up and watches the game, enjoys it and comes back to the next home game paying full price.
Firstly, thats an extra £7 club wouldnt have, and then the chance that we have an extra body at the next home game.
Dont say that this cant be done as nothing CANT be done but everything can be if ideas are put in place.
We are Bridgend and this place should be able to pull in the crowds if there are things in place to enable it.
Ps, i have patented this idea but i am open to bribes.
