Charlton create stadium section just for 16-20 year olds as 2024/25 season tickets go on sale

Charlton Athletic have decided to create a stadium section just for 16-20 year olds as 2024/25 season tickets go on sale.

The club collaborated with Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust to establish a designated space for 16 to 20-year-olds in the Covered End West Quadrant.

This also comes with the goal of enhancing the involvement and enjoyment of younger fans during matchdays at The Valley.


The club have worked with Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust to create an area for 16 to 20-year-olds in the Covered End West Quadrant with an aim of increasing younger fans’ engagement in the club and enjoyment on matchdays.

Supporters, aged 16-20, will be able to purchase season tickets in the area for just £125 – £5.44 per game. Click here to purchase your 2024/25 season ticket.

A statement from Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust (CAST) read:

CAST is delighted to work with the club on this proposal; this is the first step to realising its full potential.

The idea came about when board member Sam White was away in Brussels for a Football Supporters Europe (FSE) youth working group, where the Swedish representatives introduced the ‘Apberget’ section specifically for young supporters at Djurgården IF.

Charlton Athletic stands as the first club in the UK, and first outside of Scandinavia, to set this type of area/stand up.

“It’s been something I immediately wanted to get at The Valley,” Sam White professed. “In terms of fan engagement, and particularly youth engagement, it’s a huge opportunity for us to get a little community built within the fanbase and stadium but also offer a great experience. It’s the perfect lifecycle for young fans – you may start in the family section, before wanting to have more independence and being able to sit on your own in the new section before graduating to the Covered End or other areas in the stadium.”

Initially aimed at the 16-20 age bracket, it’s hoped that this will be extended to younger fans over time.

White added: “It’s been fantastic to work with the club on this proposal. When I introduced it to the CAST Board, they liked it immediately, so it was always something I thought may take off. Big credit also must go to Nils at Djurgården IF for his expert knowledge on the idea. I know he’ll be desperate to see it in action too.”

Charlton Manager Nathan Jones said ahead of season tickets for the 2024/25 campaign going on sale, Jones said: “We have a plan here of where we want to be. The first phase is obviously to get out of this league and to become a Championship club, which then embarks on the next phase of getting the club back to where it has been and where it really wants to be.

“We have very ambitious owners and we’ve set a high bar in terms of what we expect from everyone on a daily basis, but let’s not get carried away. First and foremost, we have to make sure that we finish this season strongly so there is a foundation there to build for next year.”

“The supporters have seen a team that goes out there to try and win football matches, that works hard, that grafts, that’s energetic,” he continued. “We’re only in our infancy really in terms of our development but the fans have seen that, responded to that and been excellent.

“I think it has been a joint venture in terms of players, staff and the fans, but they’ve really, really bought into it. Then what they’ve done is, and you expect it from Charlton fans because they are magnificent, travelled in their numbers. Let’s be honest, it’s been a brutal schedule; coming up to the Exeter game will be my 10th game in charge and seven of those have been away. The demands on the fans have been phenomenal and unfair really, but they’ve responded, they’ve travelled, they’ve backed us and they’ve been superb.

“To be fair I always knew Charlton fans were excellent because of playing here and then being here and seeing when the team is a good team and I can see that developing now. The fans have been brilliant and they’ve got such a big part to play.”

Jones believes the club are at the start of an exciting journey. He added: “We’re trying to build something and without a full stadium, without fans coming through the door, that will be a slower process. I want them to buy into everything we’re doing here. If they get on board right at the start, imagine when we’re successful and we’re back where we want to be. They can say, ‘I’ve been there for years, I’ve been through the tough times and right at the start I backed this’ and then they’re part of the process. That’s what we want them to be – part of this process, to get on board right at the start and to see the journey right through.

“We want them to buy into something and show that they are right here with us and we’ll give them a team that they can be proud of.”

This is how fans reacted after Charlton create stadium section just for 16-20 year olds as 2024/25 season tickets go on sale…

@REDANDWHlTEARMY: Cracking idea to be fair. It’ll either be welcoming or incredibly full of wannabe hooligans in CP and Stone Island gear

@SteveWeatheral3: Free vape stick with every season ticket purchased 🙌🙌🙌

@AnthonyAshton1: This is a terrific idea

@AlstonCall56923: A lot of good in here. Miles front and center of the promotional material as well… one more year makes sense for the player and the club… Small’s deal has been extended otherwise it would be odd for him to be on the main photo. Key: Medium-term… ownership is all in… #cafc

@789cafc_poyrfjk: Mostly good stuff but £450 for not that great seats in the East Stand is steep. £20 a game for league one football. I’d expect that to be the price of buying one on the day each week, not for ST holders.

@MartCAFC45: Excellent initiatives tho like em well done all

@C4FCAddicks: This is top class. The owners have put money where their mouths are and actions have spoken higher than the words. Fair play, could’ve nose dived in January. Fair to say, the future under these owners looks brighter than any other owners ship for more than a decade #cafc 👏👏👏

@Weaverfooty14: Season tickets renewed, special season next year 🔴⚪️🔴⚪️ I know you won’t believe us the Reds are going up 🎵🎵🎵 #cafc

@Rob_Waghorn: The club has a vision now, its been tough. The fans are the club, the pulse, its life blood. We can help shape our future for the next genarations to follow our paths. Simple choice really, lets all help make it happen. Love OUR club. #cafc

@TattooedAndBald: Intrigued about this new fan zone though 🤔 #cafc

@cafc_luke_: petition to make the whole covered end safe standing 😮‍💨 #cafc

@LiamWhite75: I’m really not used to us behaving like a fully functioning football club. Is this what ambition and communication looks like? #cafc

@MarkCAFC1905: Our club is finally moving in the right direction COYR 🔴⚪️ #cafc

@ValleyFloydFred: Safe Standing! 😍

@cafcBrownsJFT97: Renewed the usual it’s-easier-to-get-my-ageing-bladder-to-the- loo aisle seat, but must confess the safe standing made me waver.

@Tha1ChrisReader: All positive news, just wish something had been mentioned ref Parking issues. Are people being fined for parking in the CPZ bays as a lot of people still seem to be using them on matchdays.

@cafctom_: Safe standing that’s bloody quality
