    2023 Season Tickets

    It seems all the Premier Division clubs, bar UCD, are already live for next season, whereas in the First, it's just Finn Harps and Galway ready so far. Kerry will presumably have a big website launch when all the merchandise is ready in the coming weeks, but the others must be waiting for the fixtures to be released?

    From looking through the links definitely appears a number of price increases from last season and signs of more of shift towards more €20 range match night ticket prices

    Shamrock Rovers, Dundalk, St. Pats and Galway from what I see definitely still offering good value for the respective general admission season tickets considering where you expect they will be in their respective divisions

    Harps have easily the best priced kids tickets in the league, I'd argue. €5 for a primary school season ticket and €40 for a secondary school kid is fantastic value for money.

    180 quid for Town ST. Great value given it's 15 at the gate.

    As far as I can see we are letting one kid in free with an adult for the season but it's €50 for 2 kids!

    Derry now £260 (€300), up £20. There's never really much of a saving buying one. If match tickets increase by the proportion, it'll be £16/17 next year. With virtually every match selling out last season, the club will easily get away with some price increases.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Are there kids tickets at Longford at all? Don't see it listed on the season tickets. Does student just cover all bases?

    They have family discounts - 1 adult and 2 kids is €230.
    Last season they charged €5 per game for under 12's!!
    The GAA even let under 12's in free locally to games here.

    Yeah that's what I meant, didn't seem to be specifically kids tickets. Thought it was a bit strange.

    Jesus that is a mental price for a first division club in their first ever season. That’s higher than a lot of Premier clubs season ticket options. Not sure how many home games will be included in it but say for argument sake there will be 18 included in that €275 ticket, that works out at over €15 per match. Meaning the season ticket will actually cost fans more money than paying at the gate each week or else match tickets are going to cost more than €15 which is crazy given the level and the facilities

    Season Ticket pricing seems to be the first real mistake Kerry have made. Or at least it appears so anyway - as only time will tell what the take up is.

    It's a punchy price level for the First Division anyway, nevermind a brand new team in it too. Would be interetsing to know what budget they're working off of if it includes STs at that price.

    Obviously, given the big difference in wages even between teams in the First, there are no hard and fast rules as to what attendance levels a club might need to break even, but given Mounthawk Park is small enough to begin with, you'd have thought a minimum average of 500 would be required, making today seem all the more like madness.

    KERRY Fc ticket prices are similar to Munster Rugby season ticket prices.

    Which itself seems bizarre.

    The two adults two kids for 400 looks ok, its the individual one at 275 that looks mad but knowing cute Kerry people most fellas will buy a family ticket between them
    Have to think its a combination of the capacoty being very low as well maybe that they thnk they will fill anyway

    It's a high risk strategy for a brand new team. And risks the run-in to their first season being dominated by negativity around ticket prices.

    I'd be concerned by what that decision potentially signifies, which is that the people behind the new club have very little understanding of how this league tends to operate in the lower tier. Treaty's are 190 as far as I remember, and I'd consider that high enough.
