MILAN Mandaric, the Sheffield Wednesday chairman, has launched an impassioned plea to supporters to snap up discount season tickets and roar them on in the Championship next season.
Season tickets went back on sale yesterday and The Star understands the club sold a further 400, to go with the 10,000 shifted between January and March at “early bird” prices.
An adult ticket for a seat on the Kop is £365 or an equivalent average price per game of £15.87. This deal will be valid until June 16, making the Owls one of the least expensive clubs to watch in the division.
Admission will be free for under-eights who accompany adult season-ticket-holders. Discounted prices this time are around are 10 per cent below those quoted by the club two years ago for football in the second tier of English football.
Mandaric said: “I am so proud of our supporters, who gave us such incredible backing over the course of our promotion season. Of course, we are now a Championship club and we already have nearly 10,000 season-ticket-holders joining us on our next journey.
“But we would like many, many more and we have tried to make our football for next season as affordable as possible.”
The Owls will confirm their retained list today. Stephen Bywater, Mark Beevers and Jermaine Johnson are among the players out of contract.
