Club report boost to Season Ticket sales since Hughes appointment

STOKE CITY have reported an upsurge in Season Ticket sales since the appointment of Mark Hughes as manager was announced.


Chief Executive Tony Scholes has today revealed that the Potters have sold 1,000 Season Tickets since they went on sale in the Mid-Price bracket.


The Club usually average sales of 600 tickets during the Mid-Price sales period and Scholes is understandably delighted with the response to Hughes’ appointment.


Adult Mid-Price tickets start from just £399 with tickets for Under-17s and Under-11s available from a bargain £209 and £67 respectively.


Scholes said: “We were 15 per cent down on last year when the Early Bird sales period came to an end. Whilst it was disappointing that we were down at all, to put it into context we had still sold 16,500 Season Tickets at that point and sold more than many people were expecting us to.


“Since going back on sale with Mid-Price Season Tickets, and following the appointment of Mark Hughes, we’ve had a very good response and have sold a further 1,000 tickets.


“We normally sell between 500-600 tickets during the Mid-Price sales period. We’re still down, like-for-like on last year, but whereas we were 15 per cent down we’re now 12.5 per cent down.


“We’ve been very encouraged by the recent increase in Season Ticket sales and it gives us great reason to be optimistic that once again we’re going to be playing in front of sell-out crowds next season.


“Season Tickets are still the very best way of watching Stoke City play in an affordable manner and we would urge anyone who is thinking about buying one to come down and reserve their seat. Mid-Price tickets are available until June 30.


Season Tickets can be purchased in person at the Ticket Office, over the phone on 01782 367599 or online at scfcdirect.com
