Season tickets 2017/18

The season ticket prices for the 2017/18 season were confirmed last night by the senior committee. The prices will remain frozen at last years rates of £140/£75 if purchased in the month of June. However if purchased after June, the price will be £150/£80. Both prices represent an excellent saving across the 19 home league games, especially in light of the £1 increase in adult admission on a single match basis as indicated by NIFL last month. An adult season ticket will see a saving of up to 33% whilst a concession season ticket will see a saving of up to 44%.
