Sandy Clark   Sammy Conn.     Owen  Coyle, Peter Davenport, Johnny Martin,  loads more I could have included  that I liked to watch, 

Can’t believe I missed out Super Sammy Conn. A legend if ever there was one.

Prices bumped by £20, goal posts moved for older fans with concessions going from +65 to +75 (which isn't necessarily dreadful but is snuck in there without further mention) and online purchase only - that'll get folk back! 

By all means give the option for purchasing online, but surely the priority should be making it as easy as possible for as many people as possible to make the games in the coming months. Zero communication from the board into the bargain. Poor stuff.

What's the justification for bumping the concession age to over 75s? Bit shite expecting retired folk to fork out full price. 

Doesn’t affect me personally but I’m hoping it’s a typing error and it’s meant to be 65 rather than 75.

Ridiculous that age raised from 65 to 75

Just did it online. I am a 1924 Club member so they already know my DOB ( over 65) and they applied a 10% deduction , and I could not even cheat and add on a few years to get to 75. It does seem a stark increase for anyone who was not a previous ST purchaser. I know life expectancy might be increasing and it's the BBC cut off for a free licence, but it may well have an impact on marginal 66 + fans/customers (!)  . It is a poor bit of communication from the Board in not setting out what could be a reasonable case over lost revenue etc in the last year.  Given that previous ST holders in some senses paid out good money but got a poorer return in the lost season it has come across as a  poor decision.  In the end I suppose I did not have to pay upfront again so I will end there.

I understand they’ve took a hit over the last 18 months but this is a bit much I think. Especially with the lack of communication. I think they’ll lose more than they gain. I’ll be getting my ST - glutton for punishment.

I will still buy my season ticke even though i should be getting an OAP concession  i'll get a discount on the ticket from being a member of club 24 for the last couple of seasons i've sponsored a player and took a turn in the lottery i wont be doing either now so i wont be putting almost £350 into the club not a great bit of buisness in my opinion.

Retired and would have purchased a season ticket, but I will just pick and chose my games.  

Absolutely disgusted with the increase for concessions from 65 to 75.....tells you everything you need to know about the people at the top. The supporters  who are being hammered here are the ones who have supported the club for around 55+ years and because of this they have calculated that they will continue to do so regardless of any price increase. Its an embarrassment....embarrassing that Airdrie supporters 65+ could go to just about any other ground in the country and receive a concession....now there's an idea.

I think I'll leave it there.

I have renewed an Adu!t Ticket with Club 1924 membership at a cost of 243 quid which includes DTV+ .   

 

Good to see the under 16s going free,  who subsidises this,The Trust used to donate 10k a season for it, 

 

Walk up prices i don't think have been announced yet, I have a funny feeling it will be 17 quid for Adults up to 75 also...

I don't think the club want any fans, if the season tickets are any indication!

Hardly the way to reward many loyal older fans poor decision from the club. Imo other than the trust enabling free tickets for under 16s the promotional side to encourage fans back is poor at least need to build the fan base not discourage fans through over pricing ♦️

They've moved it back down to 65 after taking feedback on board apparently.

Translation: A number of folk over 65 told us to ram our season ticket up our arse, so we've walked this back.
