Hello fellow Mariners, first post here, so here goes.

As my username hints at I am not really in a position to purchase a season ticket anymore (a blessing from what I have seen on ifollow this season/last season), but I was wondering if anyone knew if buying a season ticket brought other benefits (not just escaping the wife for a couple of hours   )? Such as discounts with local business etc.

If not are the club missing a trick here (not a rhetorical question I promise)?

I doubt at the moment the football being served up is going to shift anywhere near the amount of seasons tickets that we have done in the past few seasons so would you buy one if you knew that you would benefit from discounts etc. with local businesses and the like?

putting them on sale is the only initiative the board have regards ST's.

Unfortunately due to an unforseen end of football season coming up we have missed the early slots at the printers who are now busy printing 91 other teams orders...expect them on sale in July with delivery of the physical tickets early August.

We should've had them on sale months ago when we were on good form. I'm sure Fenty said they were going to be on sale before the end of the season (for once) but that hasn't happened, it never does.

Fact is there are only 5 EFL clubs that rely on income from fans to survive more than we do (yes really! https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s.....mportant-1899781.amp )You'd think the club would do everything possible to attract and keep fans, sell season tickets and build something but beyond the usual 'please renew' tweets in July, there is nothing. The club haven't been proactive at all in building a fan base and attracting those fans back that chose to stay away. We need to completely change the pricing structure of season tickets and match day tickets and offer more incentive to buy a ST, really publicised and market them to sell them, given free replica a shirts to students at every local primary school etc and that's just a start. There's absolutely no reason why we can't attract more fans no matter what is happening on the pitch. When we were fighting to stay up in the 09/10 season, we were getting 7000 because the club really marketed themselves, pushed for ticket sales and the local media got behind the club. We also had initiatives like the battle bus etc. We need to see more of that kind of thing again.

Fenty said the club should do its talking on the pitch
and yes, what's happening on the pitch will always be a good marketing tool if it's going well but it needs to go beyond that. Given how much were dependent on fan income you'd think the club would do everything possible to increase gate numbers and therefore improve the playing budget which would enable us to buy better players, which would in turn would increase gate numbers further. Instead were in the opposite cycle.

As I said, regardless of what's happening on the pitch our attendances could easily be much higher with a bit of forward thinking and clever marketing.

Maybe we should crowd fund to pay for some advertising if the club won't do a good enough job themselves.

Which makes it even more remarkable, if not completely baffling that there has been no serious long term effort at all by the club to increase revenues from the only real revenue stream we have (ignoring the TV money at our level).
