Wolves today moved quickly to diffuse a potential row over a discount for fans renewing season tickets under the Early Bird scheme if the club suffers the drop.
Chief executive Jez Moxey told the recent Fans’ Parliament meeting that fans renewing under the Early Bird would receive a further discount if the club is relegated to League One this season, although he didn’t say how much.
But there is already a two-tier pricing system in place for corporate supporters renewing under the scheme, with rates confirmed.
The Express & Star has obtained a copy of an email to a company offering a 30 per cent drop in prices if Wolves go down.
The club however say the average difference in corporate areas is 10 per cent.
Wolves’ head of commercial affairs Paul Lakin said: “At the recent Fans’ Parliament meeting, the club announced that in the event of relegation there would be an appropriate rebate on all Early Bird season ticket renewals in addition to price reductions for fans renewing in the first window.
“For corporate customers we simply repeated last season’s renewal offer by publishing two sets of prices for two eventualities and no one questioned it at that time.
“In the event of relegation, the average rebate offered to corporate customers would be around 10 per cent, despite some reports to the contrary. Corporate customers represent a relatively small group.”
