So I log in to have a look and there is no availability anywhere in the stadium other than K2. Is this some sort of elaborate fucking wind up. FFS.

Maybe waiting for those who want to relocate - may be more options after 29th June?
Seems to be okay now - google chrome made the difference

Yep logged out and logged back in but availability outside of the Upper Trinity will probably remain limited until after relocation day. For instance I canít believe L3 is sold out as there were usually acres of seats available all last season for non season ticket holders. Looks like theyíre holding back blocks until after relocation day when youíll have the full choice of whatís left.

I paid £500 for L3, which is now £575; also works about £4 a game more.
Following pro rate as above thats now £8.52 a game more

Its £4 as we've been promoted.

Prices are disgraceful ....there was no reduction when we were relegated
Season ticket holders now have less than two weeks to purchase
Sometimes the club really is poor

£32 for top flight football isnt disgraceful. I paid £30 to take my boy to the Lego Movie II, £57 to go to a gig at the Echo the other week.

We're cheaper than loads. If you missed out on the Early Bird, then you're paying £4 more per game. For that you get officials who know when the ball is out of play and Jack not to get lumped every 5 minutes.

I assume he means £500 for 23 games v £575 for 19.

In that case there was always a de facto price increase.

First of all my position - I renewed early bird so should really have stayed out of this debate.

it's no surprise that the Club have landed this increase.  A story of supply and demand with a lot of people wanting to return back regularly.  Believe me the Championship was good, better than the premiership but only it wasn't the premiership.

I think the club could have done more to help appease the current season ticket holders who for one reason or another didn't early bird.  Not everyone has ready case and the finance package was only installed late on in the early bird window (although to be fair was there early on as well).

As for the new season ticket holders one word tough.  I'm not crying  over you like the fans  who struggled to get play off final  tickets.  I do understand however that not everyone would follow the Villa down a  coal mine, across a field of burning grass or through dogs muck. 

As for the need to increase dramatically the prices probably no need given the TV revenue and other outside sponsorship. 

One thing is for sure the away scheme is not going to be a freebe.

Thereís no even vague comparison with a match by match price. Maybe this is deliberate because various offers during the season often lead to season ticket holders complaining that they havenít saved what they expected to.

Nonetheless - Now Iíve moved up north am looking at getting to probably 11 or 12 home games which works out at about £40 a game. This feels too much as I canít imagine the game by game price being that much where I sit - but I donít have anything to go on to help me know whether a season ticket could be anything near decent value for me. If it was within a few ££s - e.g. over £35/game - I might go for it for the convenience of having a season ticket (& keeping my seat which I love) & someone nearer home could always go to the games I canít make which would balance the cost out even more.

Did anyone on here renew a Zone 1 on early bird? If you did, how much was it, if you don't mind me asking? I can't seem to find a price list from then.

Couple of questions if anyone has any answers please.
Am I correct in thinking that as a ssn tkt holder, if I can't attend a game I can sell the ticket for that game back to the club, which they can sell on, at match day ticket prices?
Does anyone know when memberships eg cub/claret etc become available to purchase?
Thanks in anticipation of any replies

I think you can buy Claret Membership now, and still could, even in the run up to the Play off Final.  They just stopped giving preferential ticket sales to members who joined after a certain cut off date.
