National League South club get fans talking after unveiling 10-YEAR season tickets

National League South club Worthing get fans talking after unveiling a limited amount of 10-YEAR season tickets ahead of 2023/24.

They have issued a statement explaining all the details including the cost – set at £2,000 and are now available for purchase.

Worthing are currently 5th in the table, with 75 points after 45 games and are looking forward to the playoffs.

Their future is very exciting, especially when judging from their performance over the past few years.

After finishing the 2015-16 Southern Division season in third place, they were promoted in 2016 to the Isthmian League Premier Division through the playoffs.

Adam Hinshelwood, the first-team manager of the club, returned in late 2017 and the 2019-20 season saw Worthing leading the Premier Division. They were also favourites to be promoted when the season ended early because of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The club was more successful in the 2021-22 campaign and promoted to the National League South after a 2-0 win over Bowers & Pitsea.

The team also reached the Sussex Senior Cup Final but was defeated by Brighton 4-2 at Falmer Stadium.

In the same competition for 2022/23, they reached the final again, beating Hastings United in the semi final and will face Bognor Regis Town who beat Brighton’s youngsters.

Now they’re hoping to win promotion to the top tier of non league.

CLUB STATEMENT:

The club are delighted to announce that it is making available a limited number of special 10 year season tickets.

At a cost of £2,000 each (inclusive of VAT) they will be valid from the start of the 2023/24 season for 10 seasons.

There will be no changes to this price should the club compete in a different league to National League South during the ten year period.

All other terms and conditions for standard season tickets will apply, including admission at no additional charge to women’s and youth team home league matches.

The cost of a standard adult season ticket for the 2022/23 season is £249, so this offer will save supporters an immediate £500 as well as protecting holders from any future price increases during the period they are valid. Allowing for even modest levels of inflation, this should produce a benefit that will be worth upwards of £1,000.

The 10 year season tickets will only be available during the two week period between today and Wednesday 10th May.

However, those interested in this offer are advised to act fast as the allocation is limited to ten.

The funds raised by this initiative will all contribute towards recent and ongoing upgrade works at The Crucial Environmental Stadium.

Finance Director Chris Salt commented: “We see this initiative as a true win win – providing some of our loyal supporters with excellent value, whilst helping the club with necessary investment in the stadium as we continue our transition”

As mentioned, the National League South club get fans talking after unveiling 10-YEAR season tickets…

@danw_1986: That is a hell of a commitment…

@DanLove866: Jesus Christ

@DJ_Be_An: 5 years I could just about afford, sadly not 10

@tomhwilliams23:
Really interesting idea this from Worthing
The cost of £2000 initially seems steep, considering it amounts to a saving of just £49 this year
But with inflation it could be worth a risk
10 available – could raise £20k for the club, a huge injection

@SpireiteC: 10 year season tickets 🤯

@beespod: Interesting but terrible idea. 99% of people who purchase this would already buy a season ticket for each of the next 10 years. Better to sell off intangibles (eg 4 x stand names for 5k each) to raise similar cash without losing a future cash flow.

@dpearsoncfc: Seems like they are in need of a quick cash boost but down the line when they have to let people in without receiving any money for 9 years it will catch up with them. Bradford had loads of issues with the 25 year season tickets.

@ctfcwes: I’m sorry you what 😂😂 10 year season tickets

@jacobh_270: It’s smart by the club, secures them fast and a decent amount of money to complete works on the ground. Whilst paying off for the fans by being £500 cheaper in the long run, disregarding changes to the price.

@EddieRu24186859: A short-term fix to a cash flow problem which will only lead to greater financial shortages in the following years. A very naive approach which doesn’t bode well for the longer-term future of the club.

@GTFC_Exiles: Interesting idea. Maybe the Town could offer something similar (payable in 120 monthly instalments). #gtfc

@JakeMurphyMedia: Good idea especially if they allow a finance option for supporters

@liamdrury4: That’s a very different idea, wow…

@cal_cpfc: Parish points on these be crazy #cpfc

Colin P. King: Is it transferable? I don’t think I’m Gonna live another 10 years 😂

Anthony Carter: Don’t think i will be around in 10 years time

Mark Langridge: Surly this has a payment plan as not many fans will be able to afford this without paying on a credit card or somthing similar in this current climate?

Rob Finney: Mark Langridge, what would be the point of a payment plan for it? The club want cash up front in order to fund (I assume) ground and squad improvements, no point giving a discount and then delaying the payments

Mark Langridge: Rob Finney, 2k is way to much to pay out in 1 payment. 1k for 5years whould be better and double the amount of tickets. How many people do you go with or see there that look like they have that kind of spare cash that won’t be borrowed. The club has a responsibility to the fans I I don’t agree with this as a way to get money into the club when the fans don’t have a say on how it is spent

Rob Finney: Mark Langridge, the fans don’t have a say on how any of their money is spent – it’s not like I paid £200 for this years ticket, and the club said “we’re going to put x here and y there” – why would it be any different regardless of the value of the ticket? As for how many people – Worthing average around 1200 fans per home game, statistically, there’ll be around 30-50 people earning over £100k in that attendance. If even 5 of those people purchase a ticket, that’s £10k injected into the club.
