The season-ticket details are out: Offy details

Anyone wondering who the new money was coming from? It's us.

£10 a game more - give or take I think with an increase of over £100

Exactly my thinking. So £355 last time in prem, £299 last season and £425 this time round.
We are obviously helping towards the new wage bill if we renew. The carrot being a seat at the new stadium.

Look it is a business I suppose and loyalty doesn't count for much anymore. My protest will be that I don't renew till last minute on the earlybird. Never cut off your nose to spite your face and keep money in my account for as long as poss.

The Direct Debit is quite useful - it looks like it's not based on credit you simply pay to keep your ST active which is a great idea. You can even start it shortly to spread the cost over a longer period. Nice one LI.

Slightly OT - is that kit in the picture the official new kit for next season.

If so, big fan. Very clean and simple.

Renewed both of mine. But think the price increase bit much for not much change in regards to extras.

It looks as if the cheaper seats have been pushed out by half a block

Given the pricing, the cynics among us might wonder if they're driving down the support in Reading to justify the move to Brentford!

I still think it's very reasonable when compared to other clubs. My ST is £425 but a similar seat at Quins would be £710 and at Newcastle is £495, my teenage daughter is £200 but at Quins it would also be £710. So yes higher but the business model needs to work, despite the new CVC and American money.

Not to mention the travel costs to Newcastle for every home game, norg

We were looking to renew but too Heavy for our pockets Iím afraid .
25% Jump is too much , clearly helping to pay for new signings

Will try and pick up selected games throughout the season

Bit of a shock at first but going to renew as we've started getting a decent group of regulars down near me the last few seasons.

Ignoring the 2 cup games, £70 is £5 more a game. That's a price I'm happy to pay for getting some superb signings and bringing through the academy players.

Looking at the signings though and the excitement for next season (I think Irish can possibly challenge for 6th place), compared to our last few seasons in the Premiership, this might be more value for money anyway.

Steady on. 11th would do fine for me after the last two attempts at prem rugby.

Ultimately the league will be so flat (in terms of differences between the teams) next year that if we're competing for 10th/11th we won't be far off actually being upper mid table.

It-s a sad good bye from us, £970 including parking with travel costs from J12 M1 is too much, we'll have the cherry pick what games we come and see next season. But it's been great fro the last 14 years!!!

Yes it is a fair wedge, but I've heard that it's not a bad rate for a year's worth of masochistic entertainment ☺

I guess the club had to raise the prices this season, as they can't do it next season when we move to Brentford - just imagine the uproar if that had happened...!

Compared to other clubs it is still a pretty good deal - so maybe we should just count our blessings that we've had cut-price rugby for so many years.

Its difficult to do the maths as we dont know exactly how many season tickets there are issued this year - but if lets say 5000 and each goes up £100 (I think thats optimistic on numbers and amount) then extra income assuming all sign up is £500,000 probably a drop in the ocean compared with the actual cost of all the new signings and the general overall wage bill increase for next year but of course a contribution and all areas of the club have to contribute I feel

We will be taking out ST's again (after not having renewed last season) just as soon as we can when they go on general sale. Not sure about continuing with the player sponsorship next season though. Shame but we cant do everything.

Four of us renewed. We'll be staying on the West Side rather than moving back East.

Done

For the misfortunates who sit in the Lower West near the 10m line on the south side, apologies, you will have to listen to inane and insane drivel for another season.

Look at it this way, you can escape when we move to West London

It would be closer to 3,000 I would say.

Did not get a ST last year and wonít again this year. Just not able to go to every game, Will cherry pick which ones I attend. Also prefer the Championship games to the Premiership.
