The Ospreys today unveiled their season membership packages for 2013/14, which offer fans a number of different ways to support their region at unbeatable prices.
With adult prices starting at just £99 per person, next year’s packages are the most affordable ever since the Ospreys moved to the Liberty Stadium in the summer of 2005 – and are almost half the price of the equivalent season membership just three years ago in the 2010/11 campaign – while the £160 earlybird price for premium membership next season works out cheaper than standard membership in previous years.
After the success of last season’s BoGoF packages, which resulted in record membership numbers for the current campaign, there is again the opportunity for existing and new members to buy two memberships for just £165, the same price as last year.
Before launching the new 2013/14 packages, management at the region asked supporters for feedback earlier this year on what are the key factors in influencing their decision to commit to season membership of the Ospreys, and having listened to what you, the supporter has to say, have come up with the following exciting options for next season:
- Existing members can renew for just £99 per person (just £5.82 a game) in standard areas or £160 in premium seating (£9.41 a game) when purchased before the earlybird deadline of 6pm on Monday 10th June, providing unrivalled value without the need to find someone to share the cost in order to benefit
- Bring a friend – If you are introducing a friend who isn’t a member for this season, two people can sign up to watch every game in 2013/14 for the earlybird price of just £165 – that’s £82.50 each or an incredible £4.85 per match each
- New members signing up on their own pay just £165 in standard seating pre earlybird deadline– that’s under £10 a match
With 17 regular season home games – 11 RaboDirect PRO12 league fixtures, 3 Heineken Cup pool games, two LV= Cup pool games and one pre-season friendly – covered by a season membership, if you get to every home game it works out at an incredible 75 per cent saving on matchday admission.
Even if you can’t get to every game the £99 renewal package works out at less than the cost of five match tickets, and you can guarantee your seat without the additional hassle of purchasing on a match by match basis. If you bring a friend than you are both paying the equivalent of just four matchday tickets for standard areas at £82.50 per person. The more games you come to the more money you save!
Ospreys Chief Operations Officer, Andrew Hore, commented:
“We had an overwhelming response to last season’s membership packages which resulted in record breaking numbers. The effect of this has seen a rise in average crowds this season and an improved matchday atmosphere as more and more people get into the habit of supporting their home region.
“Our aims for next season are as follows; reward existing members for their ongoing support with excellent value packages that make supporting the Ospreys more affordable than ever; continue growing our fan base with the addition of even more new or lapsed members; reward those who share our goal of growing the fan base with an extension of last year’s package through the bring a friend deal
“We’ve worked hard to improve our business on and off the field over the last 12 months and our ongoing commitment to growing the fan base is reflected in what we consider to be the best value season membership packages in not only Welsh rugby, but in the top level European game.”
With growing numbers of younger fans signing up for the cause, we are continuing to offer free memberships to U16s with a paying adult. New paying adult members will be entitled to add up to two free child memberships, with a third and fourth child membership available at just £20 per child.
However, it’s a case of ‘same again’ for existing members with free child memberships who will be able to retain the same memberships for the coming season, be it one, two, three or four free U16 places.
The reasons to buy don’t end there, with a number of other fantastic new initiatives helping to create even more value for money including:
- Ospreys membership card and lanyard
- Ospreys Supporters Club membership and pin badge
- Car window sticker
- Entry into draw for access to Wales international tickets (home games only)
- 10% discount in the Club Shop and Online Store
- A special discount and offers book for selected retailers and businesses across the region
- Other discounts and offers…
Memberships go on sale at the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office on Friday morning from 10am.
