Haha, I'm not sure if this is a joke or not 🤔

The match day prices are a scandal. I get the 1875 membership and it can be argued it's a way of charging away fans more (Leeds and Sheff W £40) but in doing so we just become part of the problem. Just wait until the other teams in the Championship catch on....... £40 for away fans will be the norm.

Leeds and Sheff Wed have very well established membership schemes, so yes away fans are charged £40, but their fans, as ‘members’ pay nothing like it.

1875 is sill an unknown to many of our fans.

The club is obviously burnt by the twitter storm last night.

’Liking’ the Tweet from the leader of a group that used to be a thorn in the club's side and I thought existed to rail against this stuff. All very Animal Farm.

Just had a text from the club promoting the 1875 club.

Hope Rovers go up with them.

I'll get my cap...

The 1875 club thing costs £15. So if the Leeds/Sheff W ticket price is discounted to £35 (from £40) for 1875 members, you're still paying the same but just paying it up front!

Overall the ticket prices are barmy and will do noting to bring a good atmosphere back to Ewood. 

God help us if we ever got to the Premier League, it would be more expensive than Arsenal.

Well yeah, if you only go to one or two a season it probably isn't worth it,but if you went to 3 or 4 more games on top of those then you would end up saving,

Club needs to do all it can to get the people signed up who can only make 5/6 games a season.

Let’s be frank, we don’t need a membership scheme as for home games supply always far exceeds demand. We don’t need it for away games in this league either as the vast, vast majority of matches reach general sale (Luton might be an exception this season), every game did last season.

Surely it would be easier just having tickets at say £25. Instead of ‘£28... but £25 if you are a member. £28... unless you buy at one minute past 12.. then it’s £31.

Just a mess and all pointless with 20,000 empty seats.

I might sign up to be honest... maybe get to 3 or 4 home games next season.

Does anyone know if 1875 get one discounted ticket or discount on 2 or 3 when purchased together?

It is one discounted ticket per member. You are provided with a membership number which you use.

The only way it makes sense is if you can by a membership for £10 and then pay £20 for the big games while away fans pay £40.

Personally I still think it’s the wrong thing to do. We certainly wouldn’t (and don’t) like it if it happens to us.

It’s easier to get the season ticket for me even though I know that I will be missing a number of games due to work family commitments and holidays. Yes I am lucky to be able to afford it but if you work it out the ST is the much better option even on tick!

At the end of the day the club is sticking up for its own fans and kicking back at the clubs who rip us off. The club have openly stated they’d be happy to enter into reciprocal arrangements with other clubs and agree a set price of £20.

 

Bollocks. The club would love to charge extortionate matchday fees for all games but the backlash would be huge. They are using Sheff weds and Leeds  own pricing policy to help justify their own.

How can Rovers be sticking up for their own fans by ripping off their own fans who decide to go on the day?

How will fleecing Leeds and Sheff weds fans, who don't control their clubs pricing, help bring ticket pricing under control?

What is the justification for the £3 match day surcharge?

Rovers smell a way of getting more (money) for less (attendees) and have gone for it.

As ever under these owners and those they employ to hold the fort in Blackburn the approach is a short sighted and ultimately damaging one in the long term. When you're passing through on a 2-3 year contract judged on numbers on a balance sheet or completely deranged and based on the other side of the world the damage of these policies won't really concern them. 

It concerns me and I expect a large number of Rovers fans but we should be used to this sort of thing by now. We'll be the ones dealing with the ramifications down the line.

Does anyone know if the 1875 membership allows you to buy multiple tickets for a single game? TIA!

Yes they could've come up with something a bit more imaginative to get round that like charge the 40 quid but make it a 2 for one or something for a lesser midweek game.

Spaces will be embarrassing for these games in the supposed home 'end' and even worse if it's selected for tv. We know Cheston doesn't have a clue how to steer Rovers fan base so he just penny pinches now it seems Waggot is even worse.

It's just the one per membership.
