Portsmouth have frozen their season ticket prices so the majority of fans will stump up £300 for 23 games of League Two football at Fratton Park next season.
That is if you pay by cash or cheque during the early bird scheme. Those adults who pay by credit/debit card or direct debit during this time will be forced to pay an extra £20 on top. Renewals for adults after the early bird period will cost an extra £50.
The addition to the season ticket offer this year is that children under the age of 10 can attend Pompey games in the South Stand Lower for free if accompanied by a full paying adult.
The full price list as well as details or the early bird period and method of payment can be found on the official website here and they really come as no surprise. Whilst they are "competitive" they will only be good value for money if Pompey perform well at home next season as it's doubtful that too many fans would have paid £300 to watch a lot of the tripe seen at Fratton Park this season.
Personally, I think the prices are still slightly on the expensive side and won't attract many new fans to come and watch every home game this season. The matchday prices are likely to stay the same too whch at £20 an adult is still too expensive for a League Two match and it's a price that the more casual fans won't pay, especially those who can stay at home and watch Sky Sports.
The young fans have got it good, though, and the club should be commended on doing all it can to keep young fans coming to watch Pompey rather than doing the "fashionable" thing and supporting the likes of Man United and Chelsea.
Hopefully Andy Awford and his team can make the price to pay worthwhile next season with some good football and not too many bad results!
