Price plunge as Sheffield Wednesday announce season ticket prices for League One
Sheffield Wednesday have announced details for 2021/22 season tickets, with a substantial drop in prices at the club following relegation into League One.
Several fans have been anticipating news regarding the tickets ahead of the return of supporters next season, and The Star previously reported on Sunday that an announcement was imminent as plans for the new season continued for the club.
There have been some significant drops in prices compared to the early bird tickets that were available in January of last year, with an adult Kop ticket dropping to £365 from £455, and the most expensive ticket (South Stand) falling by £145 to £495 – meanwhile, once again, U11s can get a £75 season ticket on any stand except the grandstand, which will cost just £23.
A statement from the club on their official website today read, “The Owls are pleased to announce that 2021/22 Season Tickets are available now to all 2020/21 Season Ticket holders.
“Given the current uncertainty on capacities for the new campaign, sales are limited in the first instance to supporters who originally purchased a 2020/21 Season Ticket.
“The next phase of sale will be determined by ongoing Government guidelines. With potential restrictions in mind, Season Tickets are available until Monday 28 June when sales will be suspended and numbers reviewed.
“Prices have been set following a consultation process with our Supporters Engagement Panel, members of which gave unanimous support to the revised structure.
“Adult Kop Season Tickets are now priced at £365, the equivalent of just £15.86 per game, while supporters in the South Stand will see the biggest reductions to £495, or £21.52 per game.
“Junior Season Tickets in the Grandstand, which for many years have offered superb value, remain at only £1 per game for under 11s, while under 17s pay just £75 for a full season of football in the same family area. All other junior Season Tickets stay at £75 for under 11s and £150 for under 17s in all other areas of the stadium.
“Supporters who took advantage of the Club 1867 Membership will automatically receive discounts at the basket stage based on the length of time purchased, meaning anyone on the Kop who signed up for five years for example, can see all the S6 action for just £13.48 per game.
“All 2020/21 Season Tickets holders have now had the relevant ticket credit applied to your account, minus selected streamed games on iFollow. Those who also selected options 1, 5 or 7 from the 2019/20 rebates will also see additional ticket credits.
“Due to the significant price reductions, current Season Ticket holders will see ticket credit remain on your account after your Season Ticket purchase, which can be redeemed against home cup games, additional home tickets or future Season Tickets.
“Multi Year Season Ticket holders from 2021/22 onwards will have your ticket renewed by the Ticket Office and no further action is required. Again, any remaining credit will sit on your ticket account to use on future ticket purchases as above.”
