Police across the country have been using draconian powers to threaten and intimidate football fans on their way to watch their favourite teams.
As many City fans will recall, when the club initially announced the pricing structure for 2018/19 season tickets, all concessionary prices for under 12s and under 19s in certain areas of the ground were Read More
Once again it was our privilege to organise and host the end of season awards at our football club. The awards and honours were:
On 28 February, Bristol City stunned fans with an out-of-the-blue announcement of some huge increases in season ticket prices. Hardest hit were our fans of the future.
A lot has happened since the Supporters Club formed in 1949, the Supporters Trust was set up in 2005 and the two groups merged in 2012. Many aspects of a City fan’s everyday life today, like the club shop, CATS away coaches and the matchday lottery, were originally begun by the Supporters Club, while the list below shows some of the milestones achieved by the Trust and latterly the Supporters Club & Trust in more recent years.
After an initial call from the Club for ideas at the January meeting of FAN, to which the members responded, the Supporters Club & Trust was hugely disappointed by the absence of a second stage of consultation before season card prices for 2018/19 were announced on the Club’s website.
It is clear from the outpouring of anger and sheer disbelief on social media, in the media, through the FSF, via FAN and directly to us that the decision to force families to relocate their season tickets or face price increases of over 300%, is deeply unpopular. This is the feeling amongst the wider fan base, not just those directly affected.
The Supporters Club & Trust are somewhat baffled by the timing and pricing strategy for the 2018/19 season tickets. In what appears to be a concerted effort to free up arguably the best and most lucrative seats, the impact has fallen squarely on parents with children under 12 who are facing an increase in price for the child’s seat from £50 currently to £335 next season if they wish to stay where they sit at present, often with other family members and friends.
