daveoftherovers Posted January 13, 2007 Share Posted January 13, 2007 I read the Bolton Evening News for my sins the other night, there was an article in there with statements from their club in Horwich, it was comparing their bad attendances to ours and making some observations about ticket prices, Bolton are seemingly not going to cut ticket prices even though we let them in at our place for 15 notes and despite the match being on Sky. TBH I'm getting sick of these greedy gets that just keep ripping us off, yes I'd like to support my team as I always do but £39 for the Breezeblock is just a huge urine take, had a chat with my mates who I goto away matches with and who sit in the BBE with me and they agree we should do something about it. I just ain't prepared to pay it this year, the grounds horrible with no atmosphere outside of our end and the facilities are rubbish with no service. Any thoughts & do you reckon the Bolton guys join in to make a statement to their greedy owners? It get's worse, was trying to find the original article and I found this: i.e. Intiatives for home fans only and NOT for our game as we'll bring a few !!!! BOLTON Wanderers have made fresh moves to boost crowds at the Reebok with a cut price ticket offer. Season ticket holders can take friends or family members to the upcoming Premiership games against Charlton Athletic and Fulham for £5 apiece. The "Bring a Mate" deal represents a saving of up to £24 per game and is aimed at stemming the tide of falling attendances, which have seen crowd figures at the Reebok fall dramatically this season.

The initiative for the two fixtures - the Charlton game has been re-scheduled for Wednesday, January 31 (kick off 8pm) and the Fulham game will be played on Sunday, February 11 (kick off 1.30pm) - follows the experiment in December when season ticket holders had the chance to buy additional tickets for the home game against West Ham at £15 each. "The initiative for the West Ham game was very successful, so we have decided to make a similar offer for the Charlton and Fulham games," a Wanderers' spokesman said. "We feel the reduced prices will be an attractive proposition for our loyal season ticket holders to bring along family and friends to savour the atmopshere of a Premiership game. We aren't expecting the biggest gates for these games because we don't expect Charlton and Fulham to bring massive support, so this is a great opportunity to give something back to our season ticket holders." The anctipated demand for the cut price tickets has prompted Wanderers to recommend season ticket holderes to use the online ticketing facility at www.bwfc.co.uk, entering their client reference number to purchase additional tickets.
