An update from the Chairman & CEO
“Despite sharing the disappointment and frustration at how the previous season went, we must now turn our attentions to our SPFL League 1 campaign under the new leadership of James McPake. ”
The rebuild of the squad has begun and we are committed to trying to build a team that is a young, hungry, and determined to improve our fortunes. We want to give you a team that entertain and one that you are proud of.
As we unveil our season card pricing for the forthcoming season, I want to reiterate the importance of season ticket holders to the Club. As well as this being the largest revenue stream for the club, your strong vocal backing ensures we are one of the biggest clubs outside the Scottish Premiership. This support does not go unnoticed and is never taken for granted.
This season, we are all facing challenging circumstances with rising costs across many areas of life. As a Club we also face these problems. Rising energy costs and stadium upkeep at East End Park; wage inflation’ plus increasing supplier costs, make it a real challenge for us short-term. In addition, we are trying to plan for the long-term with investment into our own Academy and facilities at Rosyth.
Our aim is to try to balance the short-term issues with the need to protect the long-term health of the club.
Therefore, as we enter the forthcoming season, there is modest price decreases in the adult and senior categories, despite relegation to League 1. An adult seasoncard is priced from £299 with senior categories from £149.
However, in some categories we have been able to be more creative on pricing. These are areas which we need to invest in to help the medium to long term outlook for the club.
We have taken the decision to dramatically reduce the price of u18, 18-21 and student ticket areas to encourage more younger fans to attend matches on a more frequent basis.
A U18 season ticket will now cost only £50 – working out at less than £2.80 per game. U12 tickets remain incredibly well priced at only £18.
With the big reductions in u18 prices, we have decided not to offer the family ticket category. In nearly all cases, the new prices will ensure it is cheaper for families to attend than in previous seasons.
For young adults and students, we have introduced a £99 season ticket.
To aide season ticket holders during these challenging economic times, the Club has integrated a finance solution into our ticketing system which will allow fans to spread the cost over several payments.
Our intention is to price freeze match by match ticket pricing, therefore, there is further value in purchasing seasonally than in the previous season.
Although there have been limited reductions in prices for Adult and Seniors, the Clubs aim is to add further value and benefit to season ticket holders – respecting and rewarding their loyalty.
James McPake and the first team squad are highly motivated and focused on trying to improve our fortunes in 2022-23. The club hopes you can join us for an exciting campaign that lies ahead
