Dan Ballard reveals his former Blackpool team-mate helped persuade him to join Sunder…
The Seasiders announced tonight that the club have surpassed 8,000 season ticket sales.
It is understood the club sold a similar number of season tickets last season for their return to the Championship.
“The club would like to thank everyone who bought a season ticket for their outstanding support, having already exceeded last season’s total,” the club said in a statement.
The nomination wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms, with some supporters even going so far as to say they wouldn’t buy a subscription to the new campaign.
Since then, Pool supporters have purchased their subscriptions in impressive numbers – much to the delight of CEO Mansford.
“Having already sold over 8,000 season tickets at this stage is a fantastic show of support and is hugely appreciated by everyone at the football club,” he said.
“There has been a huge feel-good factor around Bloomfield Road over the past two years and under the leadership of Michael Appleton as the new head coach, we look forward to continuing that journey as the season progresses. come.”
A standard adult early bird season ticket was priced at £369, an increase of £10 on last season. That now drops to £409.
The club says adult season tickets in standard areas are available for just £10 more than the 2011/12 price, when the Seasiders returned to the Championship after their only season in the Premier League.
In other ticket news, the club have decided to scrap the daily increase for a matchday ticket following feedback from supporters.
Prior to the policy’s withdrawal, fans faced the prospect of paying £32 for some home games at Bloomfield Road if they purchased a ticket on the day.
“The decision to remove the extra cost, which has resulted in a £2 price increase on matchdays, means that all fans can now purchase tickets at the previously announced advance rate,” the club said.
