Championship Season ticket sales

As we know at Blackpool there has been a sharp rise in the price of season tickets at Blackpool , there`s reasons why it`s been done and why it`s a big rise but thats all been covered.

The fact is that we`ve sold the least amount of season tickets in the league at the point of writing. It may be a result of the credit crunch, rise in prices, small stadium, lack of big signing but it was expected.

The relegation of Scunthorpe and Colchester last season and the promotion of Swansea, Nottingham and Doncaster makes us the "smallest club in the league". As a percentage of capacity it`s no bad, over 50% but it`s dwarfed by other clubs in the league, seven clubs have triple the amount of season ticket holders.

This data has come from a Channel 4 survey week commencing Monday 21 July.

Team - Total at this point - Total last season

Barnsley - 8,500 - 6,500

Birmingham City - 9,000 - 13-14,000

Blackpool - 5559 - 5,909

Bristol City - 13,530 - 10,254

Burnley - 6,800 - 6,800

Nottingham Forest - 2,000 up on last season sales at this point - 11,000

Plymouth Argyle - 7,200 - around about the same as this time last season.

Preston North End - 8,500, 1,000 up on the same as this time last season.

Queens Park Rangers - 9,700 - 8,100

Reading - 13,000 - 16,000

Southampton - 9,800 - 11,000 around about the same as this time last season

Swansea City - 9,000 - 7,900

Watford - 10,696 - 11,000

Wolverhampton Wanderers - 14,700 fortnight ago - 17,800



In order of sales so far
