Hasn't this idea been done previously by other clubs? I'm sure Oxford United did this a few years ago.

I could understand a club being scared to try this if finances are tight and crucial. But if the Swans have invested 250k into the club in a year, then surely any potential loss from one game is negligible and worth a risk?

I definitely think it’s worth a go. Offering free admission (or a voluntary admission) for a game is the best chance to show the club what our potential fan base is / could be.

For such a game, the club could have a ‘budget airline pricing policy‘ i.e. the admission fee might be voluntary / negligible, but increase the price for a match day programme, food & drink, beers etc. It works for airlines; it gets bums on seats and they make their money from the extras.

I’ve always wondered if budget airline style pricing could work at football (at least lower league) for every game? E.g. the first 50 to pay at the turnstiles get in for half price, in the hope that their wait for kick off could encourage them to spend money at the bar, club shop etc. to pass the time.

Back to the main point, such a game could also be linked up with a charity with a percentage of income going to a good cause.
