Due to our enforced exile from the dizzy heights of the Chapnioship, I've kinda lost track of what it costs to view at this level.

I know it's early yet, but Cov have just announced their ST 'Early Bird' for 2018/9, and I have to say I assumed it would be quite a bit higher.


In fact, even though you have to take into account that there will be fewer competitive matches (14 in all, apparently) it will cost me a tenner less to renew my seat reservation.

The major change, I suppose, is that they have decided to have a two-tier pricing structure (with an on-cost for a reserved seat as opposed to standing). I'll retain my seat though, but very rarely use it, as currently).

No idea as to what matchday tix will cost as yet.

How are things elsewhere around the league?

Ealing had a very reasonable early bird season ticket price of £135 this season, with no reserved seating required (a problem we'd rather like to have!). £15 advance match day tickets or £20 on the gate. I imagine next season won't be significantly different.

Kimbo, I was also going to ask this question, having seen the st prices released today.
I am not sure what to think about the prices... we don't have much to compare without knowing the walk up prices.

Bristols ticketing prices are extortionate and should have been looked at closer, tickets ranging from about 20 quid to 41 pounds, which is a stupendous amount for championship rugby and makes the 8000 average attendance even more remarkable

Profiteering I would call that. They know they have a loyal fanbase so can afford to bump up the price.

Which cup does the "3 Cup Games" refer to Kimbo?

It sounds as if the club is basing its prices around a potential Championship cup, with three tickets covering a four team group round-robin stage before a knock-out stage not included in the season ticket price. Of course, no such cup has been announced yet, but presumably discussions of details for some B&I competition are in progress.

Not sure profiteering is the right terminology given the costs of running a Championship club.  It is no doubt pricey compared to other clubs though.  I guess the simple question would be whether you would double the support with prices 50% lower?

Well, my season card cost £241 for a covered seat on the edge of the 22 (about £17 a match).  It comes with a a 15% discount on food, drink and merchandise.  I'd prefer to stand and the merchandise is rubbish but that doesn't strike me as too bad (they actually went down a little bit when in the Prem and stayed the same on relegation - I would hope to see little change this time around).  As an aside the Cov website says the ticket prices are 'bellow' so at least they have something to shout about.

Yes, I pay to sit (and will do next season, as usual), but stand anyway. First sign of madness?

Since Kimbo's original posting, Coventry have announced their Championship ticket prices for next season...

Online prior purchase £18
On the gate price £20

Both seated in the stand.

Reductions for atanding and for concessions.

Ours have now been released for next season
 
The £425 pounds to sit in the Lansdown Centre does seem steep but apart from that it's good value to me for Premiership rugby, especially when compared to the likes of Bath

Just been perusing a thread on Sarries' forum where they are bemoaning ST increases for next year.

Just one part of one thread:

"Not a word from ticket office, but already an allocation for 2 tickets at £1,030 each on my account. I've cancelled. I don't want to be in the most expensive temporary seats, open to the rain, in British sport. I don't want to pay way over the going price for tickets to LDH or, God help us, the London Stadium, and be told it's part of the package. I don't want to move to some part of AzP where they cannot sell the seats in any other way. "

Well, goodness gracious me!

Feeling blessed, as they say on Facebook Wink

A totally different sport, but it helps to put that price into perspective. That is more than the most expensive seasons tickets for Liverpool, Manchester UTD and Manchester City!!

I thought that rugby was trying to attract more fans of the game, not push them away.
