"I've just got my young son his first Season Card"

"I'm hoping that next season will be the best ever. I've just got my young son his first Season Card" says loyal Potters fan and Season Card holder, Richard Bestwick.

Richard has been a Season Card holder for many years and the upcoming campaign will see him relocate to the Family Area with his four-year-old son, Thomas.

"I've moved seats four times as a Season Card holder," he explains. "Each time I settle into a new seat I'm amazed as how quickly you strike up a friendship with the people around you. I've met so many people over the years and myself and Thomas are looking forward to meeting plenty of friendly faces from our new seats."

Local league footballers may recognise Richard from his role as FA Referee in the Staffordshire leagues. He has followed the Potters since 1981 and sees himself as a Season Card holder for many years to come.

"I remember my first game vividly - it was Aston Villa on the 27th August 1984 and we lost 3-1," he reflects.

Richard is confident that the new season will bring more positive memories for young Thomas and all other Season Card holders.

"We've made good signings already,' he asserts. "There's a better style of football, with tons of excitement and like all Stoke City fans, I just know that Season 2014-15 certainly won't be boring."

The Potters have frozen their Mid-Prices, with Season Cards starting from just £399 – that's exactly £21.00 per game over the course of the 19 top-flight matches - and you can spread the cost by taking advantage of a nine-month easy payment plan.

They are also exceptional value for young supporters with the Under-17 price from £209, which equates to £11.00 per match, while Under-11s can watch 2014-15 Premier League action for the unbelievable price of just £67.00, which is just over £3.50 per game.

The Mid-Price Season Cards will be available until Monday 30th June, after which 2014/15 Season Cards will be available at the Final Price.

Supporters are advised that the easiest way to pay for their Season Card is online at scfcdirect.com. Otherwise, they can be purchased in person or over the phone on 01782 367599.

The Mid-Price sales period has followed on from the recent opportunity for Season Card renewals to exchange their seats.
