SEASON TICKETS CLOSE TO SELLING OUT

16 November 2016

A limited number of Albion season tickets remain.


As the EFL announce record-breaking numbers of season-ticket sales for the current season across all three divisions, Brighton & Hove Albion could be set to sell out of season tickets during a limited half-season-ticket sales phase this winter.

A limited number of half-season tickets went on sale on Tuesday morning to Seagulls Priority and Young Seagulls Plus members, before tickets were released on general sale earlier today.

The club currently has in excess of 22,000 season-ticket holders and 1901 Club members, and fully expects there to be a waiting list for season tickets from the next renewal phase for the 2017/18 season.

Chief executive Paul Barber said, "The fan base is growing at all levels, from our 1901 Club membership, where we saw excellent renewal rates, and our season-ticket base.

"We are also attracting more matchday buyers, with the Norwich game selling out and only a very small number of seats left for Friday's game against Aston Villa.

"The message to fans wanting to come and see the club on a regular basis is to get a season ticket to guarantee a seat for what promises to be another exciting season run in."

Interested fans can take advantage of flexible payment options and will benefit from an option to renew their ticket as a season-ticket for the 2017/18 season.

Barber added, "It's vital we continue to attract new fans and it's also important we retain a section of matchday tickets for those of our fans who can't commit to a season ticket for work or geographical reasons, but this number of tickets is becoming smaller, with demand increasing.

"The support - home and away - in noise and numbers has been tremendous this season and as we see more sellouts we will also be able to activate the club's ticket exchange. Which is an added benefit for season-ticket holders, and more bums on seats supporting the team."

LATEST NEWS FROM SEAGULLS.CO.UK 

Yesterday the EFL confirmed that more and more people are attending fixtures in the EFL as clubs continue to attract growing numbers of season ticket holders.
 
The EFL now has more than 500,000 season ticket holders for the first time in living memory - and the numbers are increasing year-on-year as its 72 clubs think of innovative ways to attract fans through their turnstiles.
 
The landmark figure is representative of a growing appetite for live football. It is also illustrative of a greater focus being placed on concessionary and family ticket options.

EFL CEO, Shaun Harvey said, "It is testament to the dedication and innovative approach clubs are taking to recruit season ticket holders that we are able to celebrate this collective landmark for the EFL.
 
"It is clear to see that football has never been so popular, nor has it ever been so competitively priced with great value for money being provided across the three divisions.
 
"It’s particularly pleasing to see so many new ideas being implemented to encourage families to attend and ensure that kids are given a taste of live EFL football at an early age – an experience and a thrill that we hope will stay with them for a lifetime."
