Albion slash prices for FA Cup tie

ALBION have slashed prices for their FA Cup third round tie at home to Reading on Saturday January 4 (3pm).

Tickets for a seat at The Amex are £10 for adults behind the goals, £7.50 for over 65's and £5 for under 16's.

Corresponding charges in the west and east stands are £15, £7.50 and £5. All prices exclude the travel levy.

The tie falls between Championship home games for Albion against Bournemouth and Birmingham.

Chief executive Paul Barber said: "We understand that budgets are tight this time of year, particularly for families, so in order to encourage as many fans into the stadium to create the same type of atmosphere and support the team enjoy for a league match, we have kept prices as low as we possibly can.

"It is the last weekend of the school Christmas holiday period, so we hope these prices will prove attractive to season-ticket holders and regular matchday ticket buyers, but also to young supporters and for potential first-time visitors to the Amex.

"Fans should be aware that, in order to offer tickets at these lower prices, we are not able to include, within the ticket price, travel to and from the stadium."

Full matchday bus and train services will operate on the day but bus and train tickets must be bought prior to travel.

I was going to form an opinion on this, but then I thought I'd just wait for Thewithdeanyears or Ringtone and then think the opposite.

However, these are good prices, but there's little else the club could have done given the other fixtures. Shame about the travel voucher but many fans don't manage to make use of it anyway.

Very sensible pricing, and sensible to not have a travel tax too, for those of us that walk into central Brighton.

This is a good move by the Albion. I hope Reading fans are paying full wack though because they've got the benefit of the parachute payments. Only joking. UTA

That's good value. Those are similar to our current Premier League prices and have brought in the big crowds.

Yep, sensible approach from the Management. Would be great to have a full house to roar us on to victory.

With the Jan transfer window approaching and with recent speculation re Ulloa and Bridcutt I would like to say this. You can never prevent players from wanting to move on. So if Poyet (or anyone else for that matter) does come in for our best players I just hope that we re-invest the money back into the squad. We may be able to pick up a replacement midfielder on the cheap but strikers cost money, so if we were to sell Ulloa we would need to splash the cash in order to replace him. Rumour has it that Blackburn are in dire financial straits and would be more than susceptible to a large cash offer for Jordan Rhodes. Would also like to see us bid for Ross MaCormack of Leeds. Would also be nice to see rivals pay through the nose if they are going to pinch our best players. Hopefully it wont come to this though!

Might as well put in a bid for Loic Remy too...

Don't think Ulloa or Briders will go to Sundland as they are good candiates to come down! also as good as Ulloa is I don't think he has proved himself as a Championship player yet needs to be scoring 20/30 goals a season!

McCormack was the player rumoured to be coming the other way if Leeds were successful in bidding for CMS a while back.
He stated he wanted to remain at Leeds and was not looking to move and his reluctance may have been the only thing that kept CMS here.
McCormack has been a bit hit and miss for Leeds since he joined them, best was season before last with 18 in 45 but he seems to be one of those players who hits a hat trick one week and can't get a shot on target the next, new manager seems to have suited him though.

People think the club are doing us a favour! As said above, normal prices against an average team = sub 10,000 crowd.

These prices will probably edge it towards 16-17,000

Keep it in mind, football clubs screw supporters with as much as they can get away with.

Managers have demeaned the FA Cup in recent years by resting their top players in the early rounds, hence why hardly anybody gets excited about it anymore.

This idiot is impersonating another valued poster.

He can easily be spotted by the full stop after the nickname and the general garbage he spouts.
