This year, Rochdale AFC will have been established for 110 years - formed on 15th May 1907 - and to celebrate, we are offering fans an unbelievable opportunity to purchase a 2017/18 season ticket for potentially only £110!
The £110 offer is based on achieving 4,000 season ticket sales and the final price will depend on the number of season ticket deposits sold:
Over 2,000 season ticket sales - £250
Over 2,500 season ticket sales - £200
Over 3,000 season ticket sales - £150
Over 4,000 season ticket sales - £110
Here is how the pricing model will work:
1. On or after 27th March - pay £50 deposit and secure your seat for the 2017/18 season
2. But do this before Season Ticket Deadline Day which is 21 June 2017 (fixture release day)
3. After midnight on Season Ticket Deadline Day - the Season Ticket prices will be locked for all those who paid a deposit.
The locked prices will apply to all age groups (aged 17 and over) and to all stands, and will cover the 23 League games.
(Please note: The only exception is Sandy Lane Concession Season Tickets which will be £222 until we hit the 2,500 mark. Matchday ticket prices will remain the same as 2016/17. There will be no Country Season Ticket).
The final price will depend on the total number of season ticket deposits sold. If you fail to make a deposit you will pay the top price band irrespective of the number of sales – so don’t miss out! After 21st June, you will be able to pay your outstanding balance and collect your season ticket book.
If we fail to reach the 2,000 target, prices will remain the same as 2016/17 season ticket prices.
£50 Season Ticket Deposits
From 9.00am on Monday 27th March we are calling on fans to pay a £50 deposit to secure your 2017/18 season ticket. (Please note: Season ticket deposits are non-refundable).
You can purchase online at www.rafctickets.co.uk by telephone: 0844 826 1907 (option 8) or by calling into the Ticket Office at the Crown Oil Arena. Download a season ticket form HERE.
At the time of paying your deposit, you will also be able to reserve your seat.
Junior Season Tickets & Junior Dale Club
Prices for Junior Season Tickets aged 12–16 will be £89. If we reach the 2,000 sales target, the price will reduce to £50 and remain at £50.
Junior supporters aged 11 and under can purchase a season ticket for £10 and will automatically join our Junior Dale Club. Junior season ticket holders will also receive a Dale gym bag, scarf, water bottle, pen and pencil set and quarterly newsletter. (Important: 11s and under season tickets are not included in the above targets.)
Recognition to Existing Season Ticket Holders
As a gesture to current season ticket holders, if you purchased during the Special Promotion Period last year you will have the option to redeem your Money Off voucher against your 2017/18 season ticket. However the vouchers were issued in good faith prior to our great new initiative and whilst we will of course honour the discount, we would prefer you to redeem this for VIP dining experience next season.
Existing season ticket holders will also have one month’s priority in which they can secure their existing seats. From 30th April, all seat reservations will be lifted and go on general sale. (Sandy Lane will be available from 27th March).
Call To Action
We need the people of Rochdale to now make this happen. From Monday 27th March we ask that you purchase a 2017/18 season ticket deposit and tell everyone about it. The more deposits we sell, the cheaper the price will be. So let’s all pull together on this fantastic initiative and we can all benefit. You, the Team, the Club and the Community will all be WINNERS TOGETHER.
