With season ticket prices announced for League One clubs in 2015-16, here’s how Fleetwood rates alongside our league opposition.

Finances obviously play a huge part in the modern game, and a season doesn’t pass now where their aren’t murmurings from the fans about prices, and Supporters’ groups talking about giving something back to the fans with the commercial opportunities and television money passed down through the levels – albeit the League One part of that pie is nothing compared to the riches available in the Premier League – and it is something that clubs often address now as they try and provide value for money whilst maintain the revenue fans do generate for them.

With incentives and ideas every year to help spread the cost of season tickets, make them more affordable or give them added value let’s see how we compare.

For the purposes of this, it’s a simple look at the cheapest available adult ticket for the coming campaign, not including the large use of early bird offers that reward fans with discounts for early committal to the season ticket package.

Fleetwood start as the second cheapest in League One owing to Bradford’s incredible £149 season ticket until prices rise in July, but we then become the cheapest when our own offer ends in the Memorial as it moves from £209.50 to only £229.50.

Fleetwood don’t really have to point to fans gaining purely on the basis of inflation as whilst some clubs have frozen prices, others have reduced them overall, and others equally have announced rises.

Of course that doesn’t paint the entire picture, with tickets split between so many age range categories these days, and of course again it doesn’t take into account the early bird offers with many ending in June and not running until July or for differing clubs the added extras a season ticket brings and of course season tickets do always offer some savings compared to match day tickets alone.

But fans might be interested in the prices charges by others in the league.

Some prices are renewals only, Family stands with fewer restraints or longer term deal offers.

Top to bottom, and high to low.

On the release of season tickets for 2015-16, Chairman Andy Pilley explained.

‘We enjoyed a very successful first season in League One. In my opinion, I believe our season tickets represent excellent value for money and are probably one of the very best in the Football League. We want our incredible supporters to continue to back the Club as we look forward to the 2015/16 season.’
