Keighley Cougars, promoted to the Championship for 2010 after beating Oldham in the Championship One Grand Final two weeks ago, have given their loyal fans a reward – they’ve cut the price of season tickets!
For next year a season ground ticket for an adult will cost £120 – a reduction of £20 on the 2009 tariff – and fans can earn a further ten per cent discount if they buy their season ticket before 18th December 2009. That’s a cost of £100!
If you wait until after 18th December 2009 a stand season ticket will cost £133 and a ground season ticket £120 but there’s a £20 saving if you purchase it before the deadline.
To bring the Cougars into line with the rest of the Co-operative Championship clubs, the cost of admission at a turnstile at Cougar Park on match day will, however, be increased from £11 to £14.
And the 2010 season tickets will go on sale at Cougar Park from Monday, October 19th.
The club office is open for season ticket sales from 9.30am until 4.00pm and if demand is sufficient extra opening hours could be arranged – watch the club’s web site (www.keighleycougars.info) and the local media for developments.
Helen Carter, the Cougars’ General Manager, said: “We want to ensure that the Cougar fans get maximum value from their season tickets and we’re discounting them before December 18th so that they will make an ideal Christmas present for a Cougar fan.
“We’ve had to increase our gate prices to reflect the extra costs we will incur playing in the Championship and by putting the increase on the price paid at the turnstile it’ll help spread the load more fairly.”
