SA - I believe that kyle and Kentish's point is valid. Away ticket demand is inelastic for the Fleetwood game, because if they dropped the price to zero only a few extra away fans would travel. However, making it expensive maximises their away income because we have a small band of very loyal supporters who travel everywhere to support the team regardless of being fleeced by the home club. Hence they can jack their prices without unduly affecting the numbers of away supporters.

Tomorrow's PSF of course is almost the reverse. Probably very elastic demand and the club could have got many more in by being more sensitive in their pricing. Hey Ho...
kyle - either you are being sarcastic or you don't understand the law of supply and demand!

When demand is outstripped by supply, the price goes up. When supply exceeds demand, the price comes down. Less than 60% capacity (including away fans), suggests that supply is outstripping demand, yet Fleetwood are charging a premium of nearly 300% on their own fans who pay on the day (c/w ST holders pricing).
SA. Agree with you taking the piss out of visiting fans.

I think there might be a signing today

But then again...
Aye, Kyle. How much difference would charging £20 or even £17 make to the number of fans who will travel the 500+ miles round-trip to Fleetwood?

Inelastic demand, innit.
I suspect they do understand supply and demand very well-hence that pricing

Paul V - point being, that Fleetwood want the majority of their fans to buy an Onward Card and have priced the POTD tickets to drive that. Away fans don't have the choice, so. effectively, Fleetwood are fleecing away fans and justifying it as being their price for "Home" fans who walk up on the day. I wonder what percentage of their home attendance are not Onward Card holders?

Capacity at Highbury is 5327. Average attendance last season was 3140. I would like to have someone at FTFC justify their pricing for away fans given their average games have over 40% of the stadium empty! And it isn't a big stadium either. File with Peterborough as greedy clubs.
Dunk , Propper and Bruno are the only regulars in that team so hopefully we will see the rest tomorrow

£170/23 = £7.39 per game com pared with £22 on the day. An increase of 298%. That has to be the highest in the League! …..[Link] Onward Card.

Lurker - haven't read back at them, but IIRC after the last game of last season, Dean Smith said something like he hopes his players can see what they're building there. Meaning he thought back then that there would be other clubs now interested...

Guess it's more a case of the players/agents thinking it's a ripe time to move (a la Lyle Taylor) than their new gaff

Still hard to justify on many levels IMO
£22 to stand at Fleetwood? Who do they think they are? They clearly don't understand the law of supply and demand. …...Its more about getting home supporters to buy a season ticket (onward card £170 for 23 games) and financially punish those who pay on the day. They have to charge us as they do their potd supporters. hence £22 adult standing. Blackpool same prices but even better as they will not(cannot) accept credit/debit cards to pay for anything tickets, club shop even in BFC Hotel.

Brentford are losing a fair few players...

They had quite a nice unit there last season
Can’t work out if that is down or up for Egan. He seemed to have dropped down the pecking order at Brentford.
