Some months after other clubs get their pricing tied up, Forest announced their season ticket prices today. Modest rises all round seem to be the order of the day, which is most definitely tolerable. Unless you happen to be in the Under 21 age bracket then you’re looking at a heftier rise. That said, I always struggled to see why Under 18 and Under 21 were so close in price before the massive jump to adult prices.
So I’m quite content with that really. You have until June 26th to renew your seat after which they become available presumably for ‘transferring’ season ticket holders to move to. Forest are offering the usual short-term loan option to pay by instalments, and seem to have finally done away with the ludicrous % surcharge for using Visa-backed debit cards to pay up front for your ticket. All in all, a grumble free zone for this writer!
I will grumble a little bit about the away membership scheme – which is a complete and utter con, but one those of us who travel away a bit must be party to because it’s basically a glorified queue-jumping mechanism. A slight rise in this, £32 for those of us renewing, £37 to new entrants to the scheme. As Forest have already demonstrated their ability to prioritise tickets based on away attendance records, I don’t see why this system is in place other than as a cynical cash-raising exercise.
But still, that’s a relatively small gripe mostly in an announcement full of positivity – to get over the idea I tend to consider the away membership as part of my season ticket cost. It still doesn’t see me paying the most expensive regular season ticket cost, and gives me peace of mind that – combined with my ‘games attended’ list, I’m unlikely to not be able to attend a game I would like to go to. All the information you need should be at the end of this link.
