Will Sheffield Wednesday fans be boycotting Ipswich away due to the £37.50 ticket price?

Will they heck.

Bristol fans take note, although it's expensive you aren't seeing any Wednesday fans crying about it and cutting their noses to spite their face and boycotting.

Both levels of support are classes apart, they'll sell it out too!!

I've been to Wednesday a few times so probably wouldn't bother for £40, unless i'm making a weekend of it.

A Rotherham fan criticising another team for not turning up in big numbers. The irony!

Got mine +2, though to be fair it's £32.50 for the majority of the seats, I don't think we will sell out either.

But the distance between Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich is only 177 miles, compared to a massive 184 mile distance from Bristol City to Sheffield Wednesday..

Try getting the train to Ipswich or even driving to it, fuck arse end of the earth that place. That said a bit of tactical planning means my train ticket should be 43.00

Does the fact that the price is actually only £32.50 not fuck up the entire thread?

Will Wednesday fans be boycotting Ipswich on the grounds that the Suffolk bastards don't rate them big enough for a Grade A match?

I can't stand the whole ticket price argument, it's ridiculously tedious.

Norwich tickets last season were £40 and some Derby fans wouldn't shut up about it, yet we sold out.

Why shouldn't Norwich, knowing they will sell out, charge what they think is reasonable? It's a business at the end of the day, supply and demand.

Well we aren't going to sell out Sheffield Wednesday, and it doesn't take a genius to work out that by using the same supply and demand principles you speak of, Mr Chansiri will be losing out on revenue that he would've gained from charging a fair price, of let's say, £25. I expect us to sell around 1000 tickets at £39 = £39,000. Whereas at £25 this figure would've been 3000, at the very minimum 2500. Let's say it was 2500, £25 x 2500 = £62500. Not to mention the additional revenue that would be gained through food and drink sales at the ground. And even if you tell me our support is shite and we wouldn't bring that much, even 2000 tickets at £25 brings in £50000.

You didn't sell Norwich out.

I'm not sure we give two shiny shits about away revenue, especially as our catering is outsourced anyway.

We will get more off you this season than your last two visits combined mind.

I'm agree, it doesn't mean shit to him in the grand scheme of things, which makes it more absurd to charge that price. However Chansiri himself has tried defending the price by saying that as costs increase, revenues must also increase. What I'm highlighting is that actually, by charging a higher price revenues will decrease. You'd think a successful businessman might be able to work out the simple maths. Of course it's not just away fans, but judging by people on your forum the home attendance looks like it's also going to take a hit, people have gone from predicting an attendance of 28k, to 20k. If correct that's also gonna be a significant loss of revenue.

Isn't that Chansiri's problem then? I just find the whole argument tedious, especially when it has nothing to do with fans.

'even if you tell me our support is shite' - do you think I'm eleven? I don't judge anybody's support on the collective. I guarantee there will be hundreds of Bristol City fans that do more miles and go a lot further for their club than I do mine this season, even if Derby do have the overall better away attendance. What sort of halfwhit would I be to then brag about that?

This season, I'll go to the games I can make and want to go to. I imagine the same will go for a lot of people. If some Bristol City fans don't want to go to Wednesday because of the price then that's fine, I just don't see why there has to be a big song and dance about it.
