What does a full price season ticket work out at per game at Tannadice?

£15.50 for full priced bought at optimum point, £9.20 senior citizen, under 18 and student, £7.90, under 16s £3.70.

These prices would vary depending on fans taking discounts due to no access in 20-21 season, and time of purchase.

Feel free to correct this.

I was aiming at the full price, no early bird concession numbers.  That might put the £30 into perspective. 

A quick look at a new season ticket at £489 for lower ET.  19 games or do you get any cups too?  If not, that's £25.74 a game, £30 looks about right going on that.

That said, no way would I pay that to see any football team.

 

ETA, no cup games, so £25,74 a game (providing you get a favourable draw after the split).  As above, £30 looks about right for non season ticket holders.  Glad I support a diddy team tbqh.

To be fair theres a big backlash to this from United fans on social media. That said, i doubt it will make a blind bit of difference

Yeah there’s no doubting the pricing is ridiculous but I’ll be honest I think my club will probably price it the same. 
 

I’m as much pissed off with the Sunday lunchtime kick off tbh as the pricing. I really can’t be arsed with football at that time on a Sunday, derby or not.

£30 quid is pretty fucking steep tbf, although perhaps it is a slightly misguided attempt to try to help the club’s finances recover from the impact of Covid from last year, whilst completely ignoring the impact that it might have had on the finances of much of the fan base.

I reckon that the club are just assuming that this will be a sellout thus just trying to maximise revenue,  whilst in reality, I agree that we are unlikely to fill Tannadice with prices like that, Derby or no, with it being on the telly, and certainly an element of protest from supporters of both sides.

12000 x £30 = £360000

14,000 x £26 = £36400O

Obviously neither calculation takes concessions into account, but I reckon nobody would bat an eyelid At £26 and we would sell out the place which is what we all want.

The extra £4 is being pocketed by Tony clearly.

Skimming the tills again.

Your figures don’t take account of season ticket holders and even at £26 I don’t think we would get 14,000 total fans.  Plus not all PATG fans will be adults.

That said your point still stands that we might get more revenue from lower prices.

Outrageous prices for the Dundee game. It’s an absolute scandal, and as pointed out on Twitter last night it even goes against United’s own Supporters Charter which talks about fair pricing and a section which mentions affordable tickets at a range of between £10 and £25.

As much as I don't like the prices, this notion which is continually trotted out is somewhat disproved by football prices rocketing year after year and the fans remaining to stump up the money.

Football fans are suckers and while United might take a slight hit from getting some fans choosing not to go this time, they've set the precedent now and that price isn't coming down in the future and fans soon get over their hump.

It's too much - especially considering the standard on show.

I don’t buy the “football fans are suckers” line, and I think things are far more complicated than most of us will admit.

Clubs in our league have taken a bath over Covid, and even before Covid the majority were in a very precarious financial situation.  Clubs like United will never be profitable in the medium to long term, the best we can hope for is to break even and/or have the support of a rich person who is dedicated (daft) enough to sink their money into the club,

I really do not see that situation changing in the foreseeable future.

Going back to the fans, people will decide on attending games or buying a ST based on their resources and commitment.  On a one off game I really doubt that £6 will be the determining factor, particularly for a derby.  I agree with you that once we have crossed the pricing Rubicon there’s little likelihood of going back.

I sympathise with folk who cannot afford to go to games, for the first 20 or so years of my married life that was a reality for me as I was in poorly paid jobs bringing up a family and taking my kids to a football match was a ‘luxury’.  But people who choose to follow their team for whatever reason are not “suckers” rather they are folk who accept the reality and chose to spend or not spend their cash dependent upon other demands or requirements.

As written yesterday, there are several reasons for £30 being a thoughtless price for the Tannadice derby.

But for balance, 6 years ago the price charged by both clubs in these matches was £25: inflation would make that £28.43 today. 

Looking back at old tickets from that ill fated season, Aberdeen away was £25, Motherwell £23, for comparison. That said, football was too dear then as well, prices seemed to take off in the mid-'eighties, as I recall away prices of £1.50 for adults in 1982-83 season, which would be around £5.20 today, which would be very, very cheap.

A couple of posters were hinting about us signing an experienced striker towards the end of last week there, any idea if we're any further forward with that?

Yon Argentinian dude is apparently going to a team in Chile.

I recently had Mark Wilson on my podcast if anyone fancies giving it a listen it’d be much appreciated, spoke brilliantly about his time at the club. Unfortunately had some technical issues this week so it’s audio only and it’s picked up a slight echo on Marks audio so apologies for that. However, hope everyone enjoys 👍🏻
