Owls Set To Announce New Ticket Prices

Owls Set To Announce New Ticket Prices

Wednesdayites are set for more good news this week with the club all set to announce new, cheaper, tickets for the remaining home matches at Hillsborough this season.

Owls fans were able to watch Wednesday destroy Charlton Athletic 4-1 with reduced prices of £10 for adults and £5 concessions at the weekend.

And new chairman Lee Strafford revealed that the club would be reducing the matchday prices to watch the Owls following Saturday's encounter with the Addicks, with the new prices set to be announced early this week, and as early as today (Monday).

Strafford is looking to bring the fans back to S6 after crowds dropped worrying low - their lowest for years - before Christmas with a number of incentives and reduced ticket prices.

And season ticket holders are also set to be benefit, with the club also confirming that they'd be subject to offers in light of the ticket price decrease.

The changes are set to be announced in time for the home clash with Birmingham City, televised live on Sky, on Saturday, January 31m kick-off 5.20pm.

Keep your eyes on the official Wednesday website at www.swfc.co.uk or on Vital Sheffield Wednesday for the latest news on ticket prices.

Makes great business sense. £18 to sit in the kop - cheap at half the price. Consider Hillsborough packed to the rafters from now on. Up the Owls!

Great...things are at last looking up!! I am a season ticket holder, and not looking to complain but 2 free tickets to a game i already have tickets for is a bit rubbish, i would rather see some extra money knocked off next years season ticket for those who hold one this year!

Agreed, thru&thru, that would be a better option - sounds like they're listening to fans though so suggest it and see what happens.

Happy as i have recently been priced out of going to matches. Two of my close friends are even starting to go because of the price drop and we are all considering season tickets next season. Hopefully this will spur others like myself to go to more matches. Also, I went to charlton match with free tickets with my 2 daughters and wife they all enjoyed it and have expressed an interest in going more often!!! Happy days!!!

Guys, they cant please everyone. The club are working under the restrictions of the previous regime this season. And we have not seen next years season ticket prices yet, which I'm sure will be refreshing. To offer cash back or the like would have crippled the cash flow of the club, and cash off upfront for next year would no doubt hit the summers transfer activity if we do not see the investment that they have been signalling. As a season ticket holder I'm not best pleased, but lets give benefit of doubt as it should be for long term benefit of the club

come on mick its all good, fully expect him to announce cut price season tickets for current season ticket holders when next years season ticket prices are announced, think as aston said they've done what they can this season. We've got our Wednesday back

Mick, fully expect something to happen for existing holders next season, but they would be be daft to announce something they may have to back track on in current economic climate. Think good things are happening at last
