May be in the minority but I think rugby tickets are brilliant value.

Is there a guarantee that all the (remaining) home games will be played at the DW or whatever it will be named.

Insofar as with the rugby, you are watching the top tier of the sport, whereas with the Latics, you are watching the third tier, yes.

But the cost saving, as pointed out, is marginal in the Warriors' case, so that buying a ST is less about saving money than 'supporting the club'.

I love the convenience of the season ticket but how many of us depend on the weekly ritual of 'can you do Friday and Saturday evenings this week'? Personally I cannot guess how many games I can go to. It was so simple in the days of 9 to 5 Monday to Friday.

It's also about guaranteeing your seat (in the East & West stands) with the family & friends around you that you enjoy watching the rugby with. Plus, in the case of some of our friends, the comfort of knowing that a decent seat is guaranteed if and when the appalling traffic jam that is the M6 means you make it with two minutes to spare to kick-off again.

I don't know about the people you're surrounded by being 'family and friends', :D , but I take your point. I had a nice seat last season and will be happy to keep it. I'd like to know about the guy who sits on my left, who seemed to disappear at half-time every game, though. :)

The reason we buy season tickets is to retain the same seats every year . It makes no economic sense to do so as more than likely a Thursday home game will pop up that we can't get to.

We first got those seats in 1999 and got lucky with the people around us, I suppose. We've become friends, we've seen the kids grow up, get married & have kids themselves, we've lost a couple of friends who've died, and laughed and damn near cried together. The community/friendship side of it is something that's worth celebrating even when the rugby isn't. :D
