Earlybird Deadline approaches

With just three days to go until the Season Membership Earlybird Deadline, Ospreys fans are being reminded that they need to purchase or renew their memberships by close of business on Monday if they want to take full advantage of the outstanding deals currently available.

The Ticket Office has been consistently busy since memberships went on sale at the end of April, with the number issued to date now passing 6,800 on Friday morning – an all time high figure for the Ospreys – and a busy few days expected as supporters rush to beat the deadline and secure their seats for next season at unbeatable prices.

Supporters who purchase before the Earlybird Deadline will pay just £165 for an adult membership in Standard seating (concessions £125), or £295 in the Premium seating area (concessions £225), with prices rising to £185/£145 and £330/£245 from Tuesday morning.

As you’ll no doubt know by now, this year for the first time ever we are rewarding every season membership purchased with a special buy one, get one free offer, which will remain available on memberships right up until the start of the new season.

Existing members who register a friend or family member for a free membership by the Earlybird deadline will also receive a £50 voucher for the Ospreys Club Shop, reduced to £25 if the memberships are purchased after Monday 11th June but no later than Saturday 11th August, while new or returning members who also take advantage of the buy one get one free offer prior to the August will receive a £25 voucher.

As the Ticket Office prepares for a busy few days, Ospreys Managing Director Roger Blyth, said:

“Demand for our 2012/13 memberships show no sign of abating, and despite the restricted opening this week due to the extended Bank Holiday weekend we’ve added in the region of another thousand memberships since last Friday.

“We’d expect the Ticket Office to be busy over the weekend with supporters still to renew or purchase their memberships, making sure they get the full benefits.

“Our primary aim for next season has always been to increase matchday attendances, helping to generate a better atmosphere at the Liberty week-in, week-out, which can inspire the boys onto great things and we are delighted to see that the rugby public in Ospreylia have responded so positively.”

All season members also qualify for the following additional benefits, making for even better value:

• 10% discount at Club Shop and online store
• Exclusive offers at Liberty Stadium food and beverage outlets
• 10% discount on the purchase of additional match tickets
• 15% discount on Liberty Stadium season parking subject to availability
• Ospreys Supporters Club membership and 2012/13 pin badge
• Discount on matchday hospitality packages
• Ospreys car window sticker to show your support
• An invitation to an exclusive members only event
• A special discount and offers book for selected retailers and businesses across the region

There are also a range of membership packages available for supporters whose circumstances mean that a season membership may not be the most suitable way to show their support for the region, including the OSC Exiles package for the Ospreys fan who’s flown the nest, the Chic Membership for female fans, and two new packages to encourage support among the younger section of the community with a Baby Osprey membership and Ozzie’s Army, the new-look kids club, with each membership package coming with its own range of benefits.
