Boom. Boom. Boom. Half a good season is enough for the ticket prices to be raised by about 9%, with the Lower Bowl Fanzone being hit hardest at 13%, and Balcony Prime 1 escaping with a 6.5% hike. I suppose if there’s a time to do it financially, now would be it. It just feels like a kick in the teeth because fans have supported this club through some rather, how do we say it, threadbare and pressing times, and this is how you get rewarded for it.
