Re: V Barnet Guess The Gate

That is poor for a home game when we are battling at the top. I don't know what to suggest to entice more people to the club. When you consider Hyndburn has approximately 80,000+ residents we should be able to attract at least 2000 as a basic home crowd. We can guess at some of the reasons but it is a long standing problem. Personally I do think 20 for a walk on ticket is a little too much, 15 is enough. the cost of catering in the fanzone is a little ott. I am sure people will say it compares with other clubs but the real answer is people are not coming in sufficient numbers to keep the gates open at this rate. Pricing needs to be looked at. Rovers in league one are cheaper than us most times. I do question why the cost of catering at all football grounds is so expensive.

The queues are very for food and drink so people are paying the expensive prices.

As for tickets, it is all about cashing in on away fans. Dropping prices loses money in the short-medium term, but may be better in the long term if the fan base can be grown. After ST sales which are cheap at 219, there are not many walks-ons.

Couldn't agree more Chrisr, but we all know we're banging our heads against a Nori brick wall on this one.
The bottom line is that those interested enough to attend games are already coming.
I doubt whether the price of the in-house catering has any bearing on the mind-set of the uncommitted.
In fact, I'd bet if you offered them free admission, they'd still find an excuse to spend their time watching the telly, or taking the wife to Asda.
Of course, if we draw Man City or United in the FA cup, they'll be the first in the queue for tickets, claiming to be lifelong fans.
Accrington - thy name be APATHY!

I think that things will change if the lads keep playing as they are. Various things have been tried to get more bodies through the turnstiles & the efforts have been met with minimal upturn, but a decent run, good footy & most importantly winning games will have a bearing on attracting the casual observer to actually step through the door.

I reckon that if Stanley keep the pressure on & become masters of their own destiny (go up into Div 1), & Andy Holt keeps making his steady improvements to the facilities which improve the experience for the fans & that means the away fans too, numbers will start to creep up resulting in overall bigger gates. Success brings its own rewards & as such will benefit all involved.

This incidentally is just my personal view & has no actual scientific or fact based proof to back it up! KTF

Re: V Barnet Guess The Gate

Totally agree Dave but also agree with Chris, the people who are not coming are looking at the price and don't have 20 quid to spare or use the excuse it's too expensive, dropping it to 15 would probably be easier to swallow and when they've been a few times they are hooked. Or maybe I,m just dreaming. The price of the "meat pies" has no bearing at all on whether they come or not. Going up in to div 1 would certainly increase the away support.
