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.

Well done Albion though on these prices.

And no more half and half scarves  :D

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
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! Especially after she said to me saturday grandad will you buy me a little Albion shirt and take me up the match!

Had my first season ticket in 1969. Halfords Lane stand £8. I also bought a ticket for a friend, with him saying "Don't tell Hazel how much it cost."

He didn’t by any chance love in Pound Close did he? Near the Blue Ball?

Anyone else having trouble buying?

I wasn't planning on sorting out my renewals for a couple of weeks but just went online to have a look and there's no renew option.

Just chatting to a couple of others about it on F/Book and they have the same problem (although it does seem a fair few have already renewed).

Presume it's just teething problems affecting some users? so will try again in a couple of days.

Same every year, just keep trying and eventually it works.

I don't think I've managed to ever buy tickets online. The system is terrible.

When I try to renew it just tells me there are no season tickets to renew. Maybe it's trying to tell me something  ;D

Official Twitter account says they're having technical difficulties with the online ticketing for fans trying to renew, they're working on it though.

I also spoke to the ticket office who confirmed that if anyone wants to pay by direct debit rather than outright then this has to be done online. Apparently the ticket office can't do direct debit payments..

FAO WBAinDevon.

If abroad then I hope you're enjoying some sun.

Just wondered whether you'll be purchasing a season ticket at these prices?

Has the upturn in results towards then end of this campaign wet your appetite for the next?

I haven't had a season ticket for years what with work commitments and one thing or another and it is still difficult enough for me but this morning I bit the bullet and bought myself a season ticket.

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  ;) )

They've changed it this year to fall in line with other clubs and raised it to 65 but they are going to honour all that have already been receiving  senior tickets

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.

Typical, they put the bus passes up when i reached 60 as well. I haven't had an ST for 4 seasons due to family reasons, but i might pick a few games next season.
Thanks for the responses.

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.
