Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins is expecting bumper season ticket sales, as fans flock to secure their place for the clubs first season back in the second tier of British football in 24 years.
Price rises were expected as the club look to compete in the Championship but despite fears of massive increases the club have keep them at reasonable prices. Fans also will be relieved to learn that season ticket prices for the 2009/10 season will be frozen by the club.
Putting a target on sales Jenkins believes that the club will break a club record on season ticket sales,with 10,000 applicants and renewals expected to be made over the course of the next few months. This would far outmatch the 8000 or so current season ticket holders.
Reiterating the clubs main goal of securing Premier league football, the local businessman has warned that that will come at a cost.
Jenkins told the SWEP:
|'I would like to think we will get up to 10,000 next season. We`re looking for a steady increase as we look to take the club forward and we're hoping to get a number of sell-out crowds in the Championship.|
We have budgeted on the cautious side, but we're hoping to get over 15,000 for every home game next season. Our support is a massive factor and, whatever Roberto (Martinez) can do on the field, we want to be classed as a good Championship club off the field as well.'
It was inevitable that prices would go up.We didn't have an all-seater stadium three or four years ago, but we've come a long way since you could pay £11 to stand on the North Bank."
Everybody wants Championship football and over the next few years everyone will be wanting Premier League football. That comes at a cost. Saying that, we have done our best to keep prices as low as possible and, having checked on prices at all Championship clubs, we believe we have done that.'
