Last week to get your Season Ticket at Early Bird prices
Shrewsbury Town fans have just one more week to buy season tickets at the ‘Early Bird’ prices.
The deadline for purchasing season tickets is Sunday 15th April and the ticket office will be open all this week for fans to come down and secure their spot for the 2017/18 season.
Ticket sales are currently 30% up on where they were this time last season and Town’s Chief Executive, Brian Caldwell, is particularly pleased with the sale of young people’s season tickets.
“With the season we’ve had I think people are realising that it is still good value for money”, Brian told ShrewsWeb.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in the Under-12 Season Ticket, which has gone down really well and I’m delighted about that. We are trying to publicize that as much as we can to make sure that everybody is aware of it and hopefully we can add quite a few more young supporters.
“The deadline is on Sunday and we will be open for a few hours on both the Saturday and the Sunday next weekend to try and get the final people so that hopefully most people will have renewed by next weekend.”
Last season was the first time in a number of years that they club didn’t extend the Early Bird deadline and Brian hopes to do the same again this time around.
“We spoke about whether we could extend it at the last Supporters’ Parliament meeting because of the Checkatrade Trophy Final and the number of games, but is there ever an ideal time to extend it?”, said Caldwell.
“We’ve tried to have clear deadlines both last year and this year because it becomes a bit farcical if you keep extending it, and even if you do extend it, with the potential of play-offs, you will have people asking to have it extended further.
“It’s a difficult one, but we’ve extended it from four weeks to six weeks over the last couple of years to get it to the middle of April and I think we need the clear deadlines.”
