Walsall aim for 5,000 season ticket holders as Early Bird campaign is launched
Walsall are aiming for 5,000 season ticket holders for next season as they launch their Early Bird campaign.
The club have introduced a tiered system of refunds for the 2020/21 season, where all Early Bird buyers will receive more money in return for increased ticket sales – while tickets prices are frozen from this season.
Refunds start when 3,000 season tickets are purchased and gradually increase with every 500 more bought, with the ambition of hitting 5,000.
This means that if 5,000 season tickets are bought, fans in the Homeserve stand lower tier will pay £150 rather than £250, while main stand fans will pay £200 rather than £350.
The club currently has around 2,000 paid for season tickets and the refund offer only applies if the club hits the targets for fully paid for season tickets.
The campaign, titled #StrengthInNumbers, runs from February 22 to March 31
Continuing from last year's campaign, the under-21 season ticket starts at £125, while the under-18 season ticket is £69 for anywhere in the ground but £3 can be recouped for every game they attend, making the ticket free if they make it to every match.
'Swifty's Squad Family' season ticket – for one parent/guardian and a child under-12 – cost £250, while the 'Saddlers Crew Family' ticket – for one parent/guardian and a junior aged 12-17 – costs £319, with the junior element fully refundable.
