This year, the Chairman and board have agreed to introduce a ‘pay what you can afford’ #inittogether season ticket scheme, under which supporters get to place their own value on the price of a season ticket. We are hoping that the scheme will empower supporters to take collective help with responsibilities for the finances of the club, recognising that some supporters are feeling the financial pinch, whilst others may be able to pay a little more.
Season ticket sales are crucial to the club as they enable us to budget more prudently and with more confidence; the income generated allows Gainsborough Trinity FC to continue its policy of affordable football for all by maintaining the same gate price of £12 for adults, £8 concessions and £4 for under 18s.
Last year, our season ticket prices were £195 for adults, £135 for concessions and £60 for children under 16.
Supporters will understand that we cannot afford to give season tickets away, and like all clubs we need a degree of security, so a minimum price for adults of £120 is requested. A small increase from each season ticket holder on what they paid last season will have a huge impact on the club’s finances and enable us to maintain and improve our club structure as we look to move the club forward with our #inittogether Strategic Plan.
