BURTON Albion have frozen season ticket prices for the third season running, despite the club enjoying its most successful season since coming into the Football League.
The Brewers have held the cost of season tickets at the same level for fans renewing – or buying for the first time – until 5.30pm on Saturday, April 27, the final day of the season.
Chairman Ben Robinson wants to reward the Albion’s loyal fans with the club hopeful of earning promotion to League One.
“The main reason behind this is to say a big thank you to the loyal supporters we’ve got,” he told Mailsport last night.
“We’re hopeful that current season ticket holders will renew and any fans who’ve been down and want a season ticket will have an incentive to buy one.
“From day one we’ve been run as a community-focused club.”
The frozen price applies to all season tickets, whether for seated or standing areas, but once the deadline is passed, prices could rise.
The cheapest adult season ticket will remain at £255 for a standing ticket, while the cheapest for seniors will be £216.
“We’ve taken into consideration the current financial climate when making the decision to freeze our prices until the end of this season as we look to reward our fans for their loyal support,” said Robinson.
“This is also reflected with the introduction of the great value young persons category and the 12s and under which links in with the work we do with the Community Trust.”
The young persons season ticket starts at £165 until April 28 and is availabe for anyone aged 17 to 22. It means a price of roughly £8 a game to watch the Brewers.
The rate, though, will only apply to season tickets, with anyone in the age group having to pay full concession price to get in to the Pirelli Stadium if they pay on the day.
A new season ticket has also been launched for supporters aged 12 and under which starts at £40.
It is available to anyone in the Junior Brewers club, membership of which costs £15.
