Owls Slash Student, Unemployed Tickets

Wednesday have slashed prices for students and the unemployed to watch matches at Hillsborough in the north-west corner stand to just 5.

Wednesday had opened up the stand, which has been used for large away followings in recent years, to those on Income Support or Job Seekers Allowance at the start of the campaign in a bid to make Wednesday matches more accessible in the current financial climate.

Ticket prices had been set at 10, but have now been slashed to just 5 with immediate effect, to enable students and the unemployed watch the Owls for next to nothing.

The deal will start for this weekend's home clash against Coventry City, and tickets are available at the Hillsborough ticket office, with supporters wishing to claim these tickets showing a form of ID.

Disgrace. I have to pay full price because I get off my arse and work for minimum wage, yet again the unemployed bums get everything for nothing, no wonder half of them dont want to go back to work...

Owlswfc I couldn't disagree with your reasoning more but completely agree with your conclusion. Competitive pricing for all (children and OAP's apart), that's how we bring the crowds back.
