Title: Season Tickets 18/19
Post by: ashdoy on April 06, 2018, 08:46:36 PM
On another note, does anyone “in the know” have any idea when ours will be announced?

Have noted this week a number of clubs announcing their early bird deals so was curious as to when ours would be done.

 I work shifts and the prospect of arranging shift swaps means its a NO from me.

Also it sticks in my craw the thought of contributing wages ( however little that may be ) to the overpaid , underperforming , mercenaries in todays game.

The game is lost to me now , I stopped subscribing to sky a while back purely because I'm sick of ex players milking a living , over hyping games and waffling on ,and on , and on , just talking crap.

plus watching the antics of some of these snowflake players , goin down "squailling like babbies " trying to con referees just angers me beyond belief..

I shall probably still go and have a pre match beer with the lads but then go off and do something else.

Yep,I'll be getting mine, even though our owners have no real affinity with the fans and sometimes I feel like that they are just abusing the fact that we were here before they got here and will be here long after they've gone.

Price wise I think they'll leave the cost of the tickets as they are, there will be more games so in real terms match day tickets will be reduced inprice

I have felt similar to this for a while now. I was a season ticket holder and traveled to watch them for years. I go occasional now but always look for results first and still get nervous for them on match days. I watch Stourbridge far more often these days. I'm on holiday in Devon this week and going to watch Barnstaple play Didcot today but I'll be hoping to watch MOTD tonight and see Big Dave with a smile on his face before and after the game. I will go to matches next season but there'll be no season ticket for the foreseeable for me.

Thought I had heard that the club were "looking at ticket prices" which I had taken as a reduction coming our way.  Certainly cannot see them rising given we will be in the championship next season.

I think they will freeze the cost and say it’s effectively (which it is) a cut given the amount of home games in the Championship.

I did think though given the "we need the disillusioned fans back on side" kind of quotes that we've heard that they'd reduce them.

I think they'd run the risk of losing 1000's of season ticket holders even if they froze the prices.

May be hoping for too much but i can see £50 coming off the prices

Id say im about 70% likely to renew, but im going to be issuing a 'Release Clause' for if we hire a run of the mill, has been manager. If the players earning 60k a week can have one, I think we can too ;)
Title: Re: Season Tickets 18/19
Post by: BigFrank20 on April 13, 2018, 01:30:23 PM
I assume nothing will be decided or announced until our eventual fate is sealed but as I have been 'off the grid' for a few weeks I wondered if there have been any hints or indicators yet?

More games per season would probably cover keeping prices the same or a slight reduction but as I have said elsewhere I really intend to hang on as long as possible to see who we appoint as next manager.

But then in the next breath I have to admit there is a 99.9% probability I will sign up for my well priced concession ST in my lovely seat in the Smethwick no matter who it is as its the club I support not the manager  :D (though the club have tried my patience severely recently)

Not for me, but, will be doing a few more games this season as we have Norwich / Ipswich / London / east mids / Hull in range now plus a few home games of course.  Shame I'll miss out on Burton, never been there.

These boards are occasionally perused by members of staff from the club. With that in mind, they can mind their own business. And while they're minding their own business they can check the ticket office for my ticket to Newcastle away. Which I ordered and paid for on March 29th! Strangely enough, my tickets for Palace away arrived yesterday.

So for any ticket office staff reading this post, back to work and get your fingers out  >:( .

ALBION fans can take advantage of major price reductions for 2018/19 season tickets - the cheapest for 10 years.

Adult season-ticket holders will benefit from a saving of £70 compared to last summer’s prices - and between £46-£51 for Earlybird purchasers - in all areas of the stadium. 

With adult tickets now starting from just £329 in the Birmingham Road and Smethwick Ends, supporters can watch the Baggies launch their bid for a Premier League return for the equivalent of £14.31 per match.

That’s just one of the attractive features of the Club’s season ticket price guide for a campaign which will see Albion celebrate our 140th anniversary.

And there’s a great offer for younger Baggies.

We’ve extended the under-11 price category from the West Stand to all areas of the stadium with season tickets priced at just £49. That’s the equivalent of £2.13 per fixture.

It means an adult and an under-11 junior could commit to all 23 home league games for £378 for the season – that’s just £16.44 per game.

We’ve also targeted support for families with teenagers in full-time education and have responded to feedback from fans by extending the under-17 category, including the £99 season ticket, to under-18.

Seniors also receive a saving and can grab a season ticket for as little as £269.

AdultU11U18U23/StudentSeniorDisabled
Birmingham Road£329£49£99£199£269£150
Smethwick End£329£49£99£199£269£150
East Stand Lower£379£49£109£259£299£170
East Stand Upper£429£49£129£299£339-
West Stand£429£49£129£299£339£170

There is important advance notice for our senior fans.

For the 2019/20 campaign, the season after next, we will be falling in line with the vast majority of clubs across the country and adjusting the concessions criteria for the Senior category to 65 and over.

However, we will honour our existing concessions for next season and beyond for supporters aged 60-64 who purchase a season ticket this summer and continue to renew going forward.

For clarity, if a seniors concessionary rate is available to you now, it always will be.

Existing season ticket holders have until 5pm on Friday, June 8 to renew their existing seat. After this time it will be released for general sale.

Any supporter looking to become a season ticket holder for 2018/19 can buy a season ticket now and will then have the opportunity to move their seat to any that are un-renewed after the June 8 deadline. Further details on this will be announced in due course.

Season tickets can be purchased online at wbatickets.co.uk or by visiting or calling the Ticket Office on 0121 227 2227.

Fans wishing to spread the cost can do so over 10 months with a direct debit scheme or interest free when paying with an Albion MasterCard. To pay by direct debit visit wbatickets.co.uk and select ‘Direct Debit’ as payment option.

To find out more about the benefit of paying with an Albion MasterCard or to find out how to apply for a new one, click here.

We’ll be writing to season ticket holders in the next week or so with their personal renewal details but any supporter can purchase a season ticket now from any of the methods above.

And please remember - if you are planning to renew your season ticket keep hold of your Stilecard as they will not be replaced for the 2018/19 season.

Blimey, you're after plenty of worms with that early bird offer! Not tried as yet, will wait until pay day but, save for them appointing Allardyce or Pulis between now and then, this will be my 28th successive season ticket.

Post by: kris_boing on May 10, 2018, 12:45:08 PM
Very tempted by this offer.  Much more affordable now.  Haven't had a ST for about 4 years now (I think) and have been picking the odd game so I'm out of the habit.

I'm going to wait and see how things pan out though first in terms of who we get in as manager and what happens with the players.  Might leave it until the last minute but those kind of things could sway my decision.

However, some Albion fans have also confirmed that they won't be taking in the football on offer, with 32% claiming that football in the second tier would not interest them enough to part with their cash. 16% said they'd wait and see who's in permanent charge of the club before spending their money.

I hope that 32% never return if I'm honest, don't need fans like that . Suppose every club has them though

FairPlay to the Albion. Actually looking forward to next season, something I haven't done for a long while

Along the lines I have banged on about all season.

I go to watch Albion, nobody else.

I am looking forward to next season more than I have any season since the Clarke year.

No more tourist fans, waving Korean/Chinese/Brazilian/Egyptian flags (depending on who we were playing) being played off the park by a team that cost £600m, with boxing announcers reading out the team sheet at stadiums being built for NFL and MBL rather than football.

Bored of the Prem, wish we could finish 1st but stay down.

Just can’t seem to shake the bug off. With no Pulis around and my feelings for the club revived by DM’s wonderful leadership I’ve just bought two season tickets for next year after only attending one home game this season and two last season.

Call me fickle but really over the last few weeks it has really felt like DM has given the club new life and reconnected it to the supporters.

I hope they never return aswell, get the proper supporters up there who support the Albion and not the greed league. I will always go no matter who is in charge or what league we are in, and at those prices for the kids i might get my 4 year old granddaughter one aswell!

Looking at the seating plan in the Halfords, it looks as though lots have already been sold. Are the previous season's ticket holders seats held until a certain date? because I don't wanna buy a seat further down the end of the pitch and then discover I could have bought one nearer the half way.

EDITED:

Just found the FAQs and have found the answer. It helps if you look doesn't it lol.

I'm getting one, nowt to do with the cost, everything to do with a new dawn..

I'm a few years off OAP status, but think they should get a much better deal...I really would applaud any club that does their tickets for £5 a game.

Anyway, actually looking forward to next year....so I await the mclaren appointment to ruin it all 😄

Ordered my OAP ticket last night. Just worked out it’ll be costing me a bit over £14 a match so if you want to sub me the rest to bring it down to a fiver then that’s very generous of you.  :) Cheers!

I've not had a season ticket for about 4 years and just picked and chosen games as and when, but just bought for next season, mine, my mate's and an U18 ticket for my step daughter who came to her first game with us last week and caught the Albion bug  ;D (In fairness, I did pick a good game for the emotional level to get her hooked  ;) )

Not sure that’s quite right. The concession age is being raised to 65, however if you are presently between 60 & 64 then you qualify.

That’s how I read it at least.

Not quite. As I read it, regardless of whether or not you already had a season ticket, if you are between 60 & 64 you qualify for the concession.

Slightly different to your interpretation, unless I misunderstand your post in which case I apologise.

I would like to apologise if I have placed this in the incorrect thread.

I renewed my ticket on Friday morning. Also, I have bought a season ticket for my 5-year-old daughter - as she enjoyed going to home matches this season (got another one hooked for life).

When I purchased her ticket, the club told me that I needed to attach a photo to her account online. When I try to attach the file (jpeg file), the website is saying that the file is not recognised (which is under 200kb).

Has anyone else had the same issue? If so, how did you manage to upload your image?

I had a similar issue after getting my 5 year old one. . I emailed the ticket office with the photo as an attachment and included their membership no & D.O.B etc. &  had a fairly prompt response saying they've updated it for me.  I hope that helps.

Went to watch Kidderminster Harriers every home game this season and some away matches as they were playing better football than my beloved Albion but now Pulls has gone I'll be getting myself a season ticket next year.

Anyone know if the Halfords is open for STs? I remember an announcement a while back I think which was that no more ST will be sold to new ST holders in that stand. I fancy trying it out due to the closer proximity to the train station and I've been in every other stand at some point.

I was always going to renew but probably not renew my wife's (who's had one for 18 years) as she really was losing interest and cannot make midweek games.

However, the new pride of the last half dozen games allied with the price drop means that we will now renew BOTH and the wife's actually looking forward to going again with Big Dave in charge.

A couple of lads in front of me in row MM have said they probably wont renew due to night shift work commitments and too many midweek matches so it might be worth hanging on and getting in there as soon as they are released
I'm pretty sure ST holdrs can opt to move seats as soon as the renewal deadline has passed and the now seats available are published
If in doubt give the ticket office a call

Heard the lad in front ask “sales been good” and the bloke behind the counter replied “superb, been really busy. Possibly more than last few years”

Think there’s a bit of a buzz about not being in the Prem strangely (although I’m massively looking forward to this season, more than in any season since Clarke).

Also think the prices have really helped.

We don't make 23/24k tickets available to season ticket holders. Large away cup allocations would see folk with nowhere to sit. I believe we cap it somewhere between 19500/21000.

The NUS Extra Card is the ID required and that's pretty much that. They're not being unreasonable, it's just the way it is. It costs £12 for one year, £22 for two and £32 for three.

Due to his age my son has changed from a junior concession to full time student. He purchased his NUS Extra Card online today and it'll be here within seven working days. It's then a simple process to scan and email it to the club along with a small photo of yourself. Failing that just take them to the ticket office and let them sort it for you.

I had an NUS card (as a mature student) and saved shed loads of money on a variety of items ranging from clothing, trainers and restaurants etc; not just my season ticket. Up to you of course but it may be in your best interests to think again. I sent them a scan of my card each year when renewing. It was absolutely no hassle at all and I wish I was still eligible for one now.

Yep, had problems verifying my student status too. Told them that i don't have an NUS card over the phone, they told me to send some online screenshots of my Uni portal/emails and my students card, preceeded to do that, and then they told me it's all sorted and thank you.

Fast forward to yesterday, i get an email saying it's not actually all sorted, and they need an NUS card or acceptance letter. Anyway, i've just given up now and bought an NUS card as i can't be bothered with the hassle.

I don't need to search for UNiDAYS and see as I already know what it is thanks.

I also know club policy states you need a valid NUS card to purchase a season ticket at student rates (aged 18/18+ at the start of the season). So, and I don't mean this to be as rude as it may come across, it looks as though you're going to have to purchase an NUS card, scan it and send it to the club to receive your student discount. Alternatives. Ask to be changed to a young adult (U23) which is currently the same price, but whose rates may or may not change the following season; or ask for a refund.

I pointed out the discounts which are available in NUS format as an advantage of purchase, as a UNiDAYS ID will not guarantee you a student season ticket at this current time. Expanding the point, if you wanted to go abroad you'd need a valid passport. If you want to drive a car you need a valid driving license. These cost money. Likewise if you want a student season ticket down the Albion they currently request that you provide them with a valid NUS card, which also costs money. £12 to qualify for 26 Leagues games at a discounted rate, and just under if you take out the three year option.

The club are not playing hardball and they are not messing you about, it's a requirement of discounted student purchase (aged 18) and has been for a number of years. I'm taking  it you've just turned 18? Well my son turns 18 in July and I'm miffed to miss out on the Junior rate for his ticket, but that's life. If you're over 18 and you've slipped through the net previously then well done you, just not this season apparently........

Side note:
If you're a student under 18 you've opted for the wrong season ticket category, as you should have gone for a junior ticket (U18).

Does anybody know how long it takes to send you the season ticket?

I ordered mine on the 19th June and it's not arrived yet.

I was wondering if I needed to chase them up about it.

I ordered mine the first day they went on sale just after the prices were announced and mine hasn't arrived either. Not worried though I'll give it another couple of weeks before I start chasing them up.

If you’ve renewed you aren’t sent another one, they just enable this season on your current card. If it’s a new season ticket they’ll send it to you. Try giving them a call or an email and they’ll let you know

We were told our cards would come out in July, so don't worry.  Perhaps you won't get one at all, at the moment that would be  good news.

This is the pricing policy that should have been used in the premier league. Full house every week instead of ripping people off for £39

Some clubs will be ripping off away fans. No cap for away fans in championship.

Too true, Sheff Wed charged up to £42 but the average price was just a little more expensive than the prem. I found this from November last year on the subject.

Sorry to ask people, but if you were a season ticket holder last year and have renewed for this season, are we using the same stile card to get in with? I am sure when I renewed that the ticket office said it was.

Thanks

Yes that’s my understanding. I think they said it in a news article somewhere. We’ll all find out when we get there later today!

Did you change anything like the type of tickets they were? Says above in the article that they will not be replaced. Also just found an email from the ticket office answering the same question from me saying: ‘You will just need to use the card from last season”

Just wondering if there is the option to transfer my season ticket to another seat in the same stand?

I assume there is and I will be ringing the ticket office up later today but just wanted to know beforehand if it was possible.

There is an option to do so, but it may incur a small (and in my opinion) completely unjust admin' fee.

All of the very best and keep us posted please.

I will keep you posted but the seat I wanted to switch to has been taken up overnight, so just playing a waiting game at the moment.

Has it been taken up by someone purchasing a season ticket or just a single ticket for the next game?

May be worth asking the ticket office and they could change yours now for it to come into effect the game after next.

I changed mine about 2 seasons ago, same stand so no extra charges etc and they just printed me a new card off with the new row and seat number.

Thanks for that info Adam, might give the ticket office a call in a minute to find out.

Cheers for that.

Just to confirm, my style card from last season did indeed work for this season. Probably would have been better is it denied me entry altogether!

All sorted chaps, thanks for the help.

Moved my seat higher up the Smethwick, but for the Stoke game I will have to sit in a different seat has somebody has already taken it for that game.

Sending a new card out in the post along with a paper ticket for the Stoke game, no charge at all.

Very happy with that customer service.
