A suggestion....reduce admission fee for the Weymouth game

Post  del boy on Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:19 am

We’ve discussed this kind of idea on here before, but I think the game against Weymouth is the perfect time to give it a go.

Depending on how results go this weekend, the final match of the season could be a must win game to avoid the drop. A large crowd supporting and cheering on the lads could just make the vital difference between relegation and survival.

This idea has been a success before. In our 2nd season in the CN, the last home game was against Barrow in a must win game to avoid the drop. The club reduced the admission charge and the crowd was 751. The usual crowds that season were 250-350 ish.

I really think that half price admission for this game could attract a crowd of 500+.

There would still be 267. Just like crowds shot up when they reduced the admission price to £9 ??

I would predict a crowd of nearer 212 at £10 a throw unless as usual the kids are in with parents for a presentation.

Why not a "pay what you like" day? That way us dedicated fans could pay our usual (to support the club!) bur the casual visitors could pay whatever. Any increased revenue is welcome!

Or, even, a "pay at the end" day where people pay for what they've seen!!
