The cheap season ticket offers just devalue the game in the long run IMHO

once people are used to only paying £100 for a season ticket they will hardly be happy to go back to paying full price.

Look at Pizza Express for example (tenuous but bear with me), hardly anyone goes there without a voucher these days

Fair enough price for me to see an International in a top quality stadium. You pay more to stand without a roof in some places.

A buy one get one half price two game deal would have been a good idea.

Not convinced 1 or2 pounds difference is a motivator for going or staying at home.

If you don't think the product matches the price, don't pay it.

I'll be there.

Why is rugby league being compared to various takeaway pizza outlets all of a sudden? Are after some freebies or summat?

This is what happens when you sell cheap season tickets for SL matches. Johnny-come-lately fan can't get his head round paying £20 to watch a Rugby League match.

Bradford and Huddersfield have got a real problem in the sense that they can't ever go back without shedding those cheapo fans because they're never going to pay what a Rugby League game is actually worth. These clubs have cheapened the game.


Cheap tickets like that would only work in the long run if you increased the demand to larger than the capacity.
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good
-
sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league
-
Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate
-
the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever
-
Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go

Gotta feel sorry for the Giants fans tonight. £5.30 down the toilet. Coulda stayed at home and enjoyed a 12“ thin crust.

Ah well.
