'10 years? I'm watching Wednesday not Man City!' - Sheffield Wednesday fans' verdict on new 10-year season ticket launch

Sheffield Wednesday fans have taken to social media to have their say on the club’s new 10-year season ticket package.

The Owls have launched an ‘innovative’ ticketing scheme alongside their traditional ‘early bird’ sales for the 2020/21 season, offering a ‘ten-year’ package that kicks in on promotion to the Premier League.

However, it’s fair to say the new package has left some Wednesday supporters asking how it all works.

They have taken to Twitter to have their say on the season ticket announcement.

@vinnyowl99 Ten year season tickets! How about giving me a free 20-year ticket for wasting my Saturday afternoons over the last two decades?

@andymcelwaine Prices may still be higher than fans like but credit to the club for thinking out of the box for the ten-year option. Hope it catches on.

@aceswild1978 I won't be purchasing one but the 10-year one sounds decent to me. I don't get to many games and I can't afford that kind of money. The price per game will relatively low if you say you get 15 years out of it.

@superowls11 Can I transfer it if anything happens to me in next 10 years? You know, killed by wife for buying a 10 year season ticket etc?

@1867Lee 10 years? I'm watching Wednesday not Man City! 10 years to watch average players chuck games away, where Nuhiu is now 40 and coming on for the last 10 mins of games. I'll stick to my one-year renewal. Cheers

@Christurton7 Some fans must have a high pain tolerance to get a ten-year season ticket. I've been watching Wednesday 60 years now and I’m still getting tortured, but we all know the saying WAWAW.

@OR19922 Once again, it’s a short-term plan to get money in. Plus if Chansiri knew the fans of the club, he would know most don’t have that money. I guarantee sales of that won’t be anywhere near 1000.

@wannao7 Why can't these owners grasp that if they lower prices e.g, make ST prices £300 on Kop, they'll sell several thousand more. And with it extra counter sales and building the fan base of the future. Short term thinking once again from our club isn't the way forward.
