Christ, we've started complaining about next season's season ticket now.  

This forum has become a perpetual moan fest. No-one is being forced or coerced into doing anything. Everyone of us are free to do whatever suits our personal circumstances. 

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that the club is a commercial enterprise, trying to maximise the investment from a loyal customer,  but I don't see any threats or demands being made.  

Only 17 days to go ✌

commercial enterprise is going abit far. 

You seen the shambles of a shop we have(online and the actual shop), not much of an enterprise.

No, you are totally wrong.

We are talking about a ticket that some have already bought, and some are still pondering over. A new ticket which is over 10% more expensive than last seasons ticket, a ticket that is offering access to some weblink to watch home games for an unknown time, yet offering 19 games, but it won’t roll over, you will have to apply for a credit which will be transferable onto next season’s ticket.

So, no I am referring to this seasons ticket, because those that can still afford one in the present climate are being taking very much for granted. They will not receive money back if game numbers are not met.

Good news. If my analysis is correct, and it always is, then in 4 weeks time we will have nearly 12,000 season ticket holders.

Lroy you need to stop coronavirus death charts from Brazil to back up your calculations :)

Might’ve already been mentioned but has it been factored in that ST holders will have access to closed door games via Killie tv, yet some won’t be exclusive to ST holders as they’ll also be on sky? Does that not devalue a ST?

Slightly off the topic of season tickets sold but in relation to the size of our crowds in general, I found a copy whilst clearing out my mothers’ loft of the Kilmarnock Annual (no, I’d never heard of it either) that came out in early December 1965.

Amongst many interesting articles about the town and Ayrshire in general, including one on Irvine Fishmonger Bert Benzie - the Referee with the sense of humour- was an excellent piece by Alistair Macmillan on Killie’s Year of Triumph.

It contained the following, remember this was us on the back of a title win and having been runners up in 4 of the 5 previous seasons, regular League Cup and Scottish Cup semi and Final appearances and pushing Real Madrid close at Rugby Park.....

” Those Poor Gates - the team which strived so hard to bring honour to the town are faced week by week with the degrading experience of performing before a mere six or seven thousand spectators. Why is there such a lack of interest in football in a town the size of Kilmarnock? Why do people not turn out in force to support the team week by week? Why is it they turn up with their blue and white scarves only when Rangers, Celtic and teams like Real Madrid come to town?

It’s  all very well saying that there are too many alternatives to Saturday afternoon football nowadays. This is indeed so. Television, racing, an afternoon jaunt in the family car and many other attractions are open to the football fan nowadays, more than ever before. But the knawing question is : why are the alternatives preferred?
 

Can it be with the team itself? A lot of questions and each very difficult to answer. Teams like St Johnstone in Perth, Dundee and Dundee Utd, Aberdeen and Dunfermline command a better support each week than the Scottish League Champions. 
 

It may be feasible to say Kilmarnock have signed fewer  football personalities in the past five or six years than any other club in Scotland. There is perhaps a lack of new faces . Maybe, although the team is doing well, the football they are serving up is not attractive enough for some people. Perhaps an Andy Kerr or a Bud Maxwell would solve the Kilmarnock problem”

Different times, yes, but if we could only attract 6-7,000 home crowds, old firm apart, during the glory days, why should we realistically expect to get more than on average we do in times of higher unemployment, many more attractions than an afternoon jaunt in the family car and probably the cost to get in proportionately more than back in the 1960’s?

It's not much different to having a ticket to a normal game that's on TV. You're paying for viewing access not exclusivity. You don't go to home games v Celtic and Rangers and moan that it would have been cheaper to have sat on the couch.

Plus, if you want it, you're getting your streams refunded off next seasons ticket. The stream is going to cost you effectively £0.

We never sold 4200. A lot of U16s in that. 

The question was “How many did we do last season?”

That was the number given out by the club and it wasn’t broken down into paid for and free. 

If every adult ticket was eligible for a free child one, the uptake would have been quite high, I think. 

It’s not clear either how many a family ticket counts as. Four?

More clarity on season ticket numbers would be welcome but even an undefined total is better than nothing, which is what we’re used to!
