Season tickets are priced the same as last season and with an opportunity to spread the cost over several months; We would encourage supporters to renew/buy their season tickets as soon as possible as the club will be reliant on this income over the next few months.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, and depending on its length, we anticipate being close to £100,000 behind the targets we had set unless we get significant government or football help.
If supporters buy season tickets in the numbers we had been anticipating, and with similar donations we will ride out this period. If more of you are able to buy or increase your donations we will start building for next season.
Season Ticket / TMTB Background
At the 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; and voted in favour of increasing the minimum price to £150 for Adults and £100 for Concessions. Under 18s Season Tickets would remain at £21.
A Ten Match Ticket Book’ priced at £100 for Adults and £60 for Concessions was also introduced for the 2019/20 season aimed at supporters who may not be able to attend every game, but still wish to make a financial contribution in advance.
Income from Season Ticket sales allow the club to financially plan for the new season and it will help influence the playing budget.
2020/21 Season Tickets and TMTBs
At the 3rd March 2020 Board Meeting, the Board approved the Club’s proposal for the continuation of the prices set out in 2018.
For the 2020/21 season, the club has set a target to raise at least £150,000 from Season Ticket sales and associated donations.
We are aiming to have 1,100 Season Ticket Holders
made up of 462 Adults, 297 Concessions, and 166 U/18s Season Ticket Holders, plus 123 Adult and 52 Concession Ten Match Ticket Book Holders.
Note: 3 Year Season Tickets (priced at £1,000) which were introduced for the 2017/18 to raise much needed funds, will not be offered for 2020/21 season.
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, £3 u/18s, Free for u/5s
, 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.*
(* These savings are based on playing 21 home league matches in the season)
The Ten Match Ticket Book
, which allows the holder to attend ten matches of their choice or multiple tickets can be used for the same match if bringing friends or family. TMTBs are priced at £100 for Adults and £60 for Concessions, providing a per match discount of £2 and £1 respectively compared to the pay-on-the-gate admission prices.
Season Tickets/TMTBs are now on sale
Due the coronavirus restrictions office staff are currently furloughed and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets online. There is currently no ability to take payments in person at the ground or by phone and supporters not able to purchase on line are asked to email their name, type of season ticket (adult, concession, junior) + the same details for anyone else they are purchasing for, to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will be in touch when it is safe for staff and volunteers to attend the office again.

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. At present, the last payment must be made in August.
Due to office staff being furloughed during the coronavirus shutdown, we can not at this stage set up direct debit payments but supporters will be able to pay in installments by bank transfer. Please email the following details to email@example.com
- Full Name,
- Type of Season Ticket,
- Amount you will be paying each month,
- Postcode (as there might be more than one person with the same name on our system).
If paying for multiple season tickets, we will need these details for all you are buying for. On receipt of this information we will email you back the club’s bank details and reference number to make the payment to each month until the installments are all paid up.
Memberships for 2020/21 season are also available to buy online priced at £15 Adults and £3 for Juniors (u/16s)
