With demand for season-tickets still high, the value for money Early Bird deal has been extended once again with the low-cost prices now available right up until kick-off against Gloucester on Saturday.
The original extension expired on Saturday afternoon, but with sales still buoyant and a year-on-year increase of 10 per cent, Ospreys bosses have taken the unprecedented step of agreeing to extend the deadline for a second time to encourage even more supporters to sign up.
Managing Director Roger Blyth said:
“It really is a case of ‘if it’s not broke don’t fix it’! We’ve seen how fans have responded to the fantastic Early Bird prices, with the Ticket Office continuing to do brisk business, and we’ve made the decision to keep the prices going for as long as possible, which will take us right up to Saturday’s game against Gloucester, the first at the Liberty Stadium this season.
“There is usually a late rush for season-tickets as the first game approaches, and we hope that with these deals still in place it will encourage even more fans to sign up for the season. I think we’ve been bold with our pricing structure this year, which has been rewarded by the increased uptake as people realise what fantastic value the season-tickets offer, allowing fans to watch 17 games this season for as little as £9.70 a match.
“Category C tickets have gone exceptionally well, and anecdotal evidence gathered by the Ticket Office suggests that a considerable number of supporters have recognised that with prices so low, it makes sense for them to buy a season-ticket now even if they realise that they won’t get to every game, and they only need to get to nine matches in order to start recouping on their investment compared to match day admission prices.
“There is a real sense of excitement about the camp now with the Magners League season approaching and it is clear that the fans share our excitement.”
The Early Bird prices allow supporters to watch the Ospreys for just £9.70 a game when purchasing a Category C season-ticket, an incredible saving of 51per cent on the equivalent match day ticket, with adult season tickets starting at just £165 and OAP's and students paying just £125.
The Introduce-A-Friend initiative will once again be operating, potentially allowing adult supporters the chance to watch the Ospreys all season completely free of charge, while all juniors (16 and under) can claim a free season-ticket in the Family Stand if accompanied by a paying adult.
