Rare event when prices go down

The motto for next season seems to be 'Nothing Will Be The Same'. Fans will certainly hope so.

Whether it's the financial clout of the new owner, or the depths of futility being plumbed by this current team, but the net result of all this is that Everton's season tickets are actually going to be cheaper next season. True, dyed-in-the-wool Blues are not going to give up on this team just because Roberto Martinez cannot put out a side that can defend a lead, so we can expect the tickets to sell pretty quickly.

Club Chief Executive Officer Robert Elstone had this to say regarding the pricing structure and changes -

"Throughout the current season, the Premier League has been challenged on pricing decisions. As we have said repeatedly, we endorse such scrutiny. We have listened and we agree. We believe our pricing plan for Season Tickets for 2016/17 clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing value for money and to making the game accessible to the widest possible cross-section of supporters.

"After listening to fans, consulting with our Fans' Forum, considering different options, reviewing budgets and sharing our ideas with the Board, we made the decision to ensure our Season Ticket pricing for 2016/17 offered something for everyone. We were conscious of the substantial uplift in the value of our media rights next season and reflecting how we operate at Everton, not only will we offer significant savings for the majority of our young and senior Evertonians, we will reward all adult Season Ticket holders with a price reduction of one-nineteenth, one free game, and more than £27 off in the Lower Bullens."
