STOKE CITY are offering the passionate supporters who are such inspirational members of their 'team' another opportunity to enjoy a season of Britannia Stadium action at Championship prices following the latest freeze on Early Bird Season Tickets.
The Club place a high value on the very special atmosphere generated by their supporters which has inspired the players in so many home matches. In recognising that crucial contribution, City have not only announced the price freeze for a sixth successive year, but have also added two specially-priced guest tickets for Season Ticket holders for the first time.
The Early Bird campaign for 2013-14 Season Tickets is launched in two days (Wednesday 20th), with City rewarding the loyalty of those securing their seat at the Britannia Stadium by giving them a chance to purchase the two guest tickets for £10.00 each for a designated game.
City are hoping another excellent response to the Early Bird sales period will provide the bedrock on which they can fill the stadium on a regular basis and thus maintain the atmosphere that has been such a major influence upon their progress in recent times.
"What we have here is something very special in terms of the atmosphere," said City's Chief Executive Tony Scholes. "Only last weekend for our important win over Reading, we saw once again how the crowd lifts the team and helps to make a difference.
"A crucial part of our strategy is maintaining this high level of support for home matches, effectively meaning most of those games are sold out for home fans.
"It remains as important to us now as it has been throughout our time in the Premier League, so we want our supporters to be a part of the 'team' again next season.
"We appreciate that supporters have helped us to maintain that fantastic atmosphere at the Britannia Stadium into a fifth season of Premier League football, something many clubs in a similar position to ourselves have struggled to sustain over a long period.
"The fact that supporters continue to turn up in large numbers shows that nothing matches the experience of actually being there and being a part of that atmosphere.
"We have always ensured that Season Tickets represent the best value ticket by some distance. This is especially so this time when we are offering for the first time the opportunity for them to purchase two guest tickets for a designated game.
"Being a Season Ticket holder is a huge part of a supporter's life and this offer means that they have an opportunity to share that experience with family or friends."
He added: "The Season Ticket packs will start arriving in the post this week. So I would urge existing Season Ticket holders to show your loyalty once again and other supporters who have attended some of our matches to consider making this commitment."
The excellent value of the 2013-14 Early Bird offers means Season Ticket holders can effectively see at least seven matches FREE of charge, with adults paying as little as £18.10 per game.
With the Club seeing a significant increase in the number of fans under the age of 21 in their supporter base in recent times, they are hoping the Early Bird offers for juniors and families will see a continuation of that trend.
An adult and under-14 Season Ticket works out at a combined price of £23.00 per game in the family area, while an adult and under-11 Season Ticket is effectively £21.00 per game.
The 2013-14 Early Bird Season Ticket campaign is launched on Wednesday 20th February and supporters will have until Wednesday 20th March to guarantee their seat at the Britannia Stadium for next season at those prices.
The Club are offering supporters the option to spread the cost of their Season Ticket once again; they can either take out a four-month, interest-free payment plan or pay the amount over ten instalments with interest.
The easiest way to make a Season Ticket purchase for next season, when sales get underway on February 20th, is online at scfcdirect.com. This service is available to supporters 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
