Season Tickets, Ten Match Ticket Books and Memberships for the 2019/20 season are now on sale.
At the FC United Annual General Meeting in November 2018, FC United members voted in favour of continuing with our pioneering “pay what you can afford” Season Ticket scheme for the 2019/20 season; and voted in favour of increasing the minimum price to £150 for Adults and £100 for Concessions. Under 18s Season Tickets will remain at £21.
For those supporters who may not be able to attend every game, but still wish to make a financial contribution in advance, we are introducing a new ‘Ten Match Ticket Book’
priced at £100 for Adults and £60 for Concessions.
The cost of Membership
for the 2019/20 season will be the same as 2018/19 season at £15 for Adults Members and £3 for Junior Members (under 16s).
Income from Season Ticket sales allow the club to financially plan for the new season and it will help influence the playing budget. For the 2019/20 season, the club has set a target to raise at least £170,000 from Season Ticket sales and associated donations. Prior to the 2016/17 season, revenue generated from STs + Donations had always exceeded player/management/coaching costs. Since the 2016/17 season these costs have exceeded Season Ticket and donation income.
FC United had one of the lowest playing budgets in the National League North. The average playing budget set by National League North clubs was over three times more than FC United’s current playing budget.
Looking ahead to next season in the Northern Premier League, we need to set the appropriate playing budget that would allow us to push for promotion for a quick return to the National League North.
Our “pay what you can afford” season ticket scheme was introduced for the 2009/10 season, with the hope that those who can afford to, will choose to pay more than the recommended amount, to help subsidise those who pay less. As in previous seasons we would greatly appreciate it if supporters, who can afford to, add a donation to the minimum season ticket price to reflect the pay on the gate admission prices of £12 Adults, £7 Concession and £3 u/18s.
we recommend a donation of £55 in addition to the Adult Season ticket price of £150. This total amount of £205 is equivalent of getting four matches free if paid on the gate.
we recommend a donation of £25 in addition to the Concession Season ticket price of £100. This total amount of £125 is equivalent of getting three matches free if paid on the gate.
Season Tickets will remain at £21 with the option to donate more. £21 is equivalent to getting 14 matches free if paid on the gate.
We understand that some supporters who purchase Season Tickets do so without intending to, or able to attend every match, so for those supporters we have introduced a ‘Ten Match Ticket Book’ which can be used how you wish. You can use a ticket for a single match of your choice, or alternatively you can use more than one ticket per match, if you are attending with friends or family. The Ten Match Ticket Book is priced at £100 for Adults and £60 for Concessions, which provides a discount of £2 and £1 respectively compared to the pay on the gate admission prices.

You can also purchase your ticket book and Membership from the Membership Stall at our home matches. The Membership Stall is situated inside the ground adjacent to the SMRE turnstiles. Card and cash payments are accepted.
For those supporters who may struggle to pay for their season ticket in one go, the club offers the option to pay in monthly payments. The last payment must be made in August 2019. Please contact the office on 0161 769 2005 to discuss and agree your payment plan.
We are still providing supporters with the option to donate a Junior Season Ticket and Ten Match Tickets Books to one of the eight chosen local causes; Whitemoss Community Centre, Manchester Youth Zone, Nephra Mens Group, Broadhurst Community Centre,
North City Nomads, Broadway Baths, North Manchester Sport Activity Forum, Moston and Collyhurst Boxing Club.
The newly introduced Ten Match Ticket Book, could be a preferable option in this case, due to the ability to use multiple tickets for a single match, therefore allowing a group of people to attend a match together. For those supporters who are considering donating a ticket, we advise that you discuss the options with the office staff.
Season Ticket and Ten Match Ticket Books will be posted out prior to the start of the new season in August. Membership cards will be available for collection at home matches and from the office in August and posted out for those who are unable to collect them person.
