Evertonians have been snapping up their 2012/13 Season Tickets to take advantage of the early bird discounts.
All Season Ticket holders who renew for next season before the Early Bird deadline on 20 April, will benefit from a 25 per cent discount based on match by match prices, and match-goers wishing to upgrade to a Season Ticket for the first time in 2012/13 can also benefit from a 20 per cent discount.
Michael Motley, 45 of Upton in Wirral, was the first person to guarantee his seat at Goodison for next season’s Premier League action when Season Tickets went on sale on Monday.
Mr Motley bought three Season Tickets in the Family Enclosure for himself and his two sons Joseph and Thomas.
He said: “I am a lifelong Everton supporter and went to my first game back when I was 12 years old. I followed the team home and away in my younger days but family came along and finances changed so I had been going less frequently.
“I’ve started going again lately with my two lads, who are 8 and 11, particularly to the Cup games and they have both loved it. It’s now affordable to take the lads with that lower price. With the Early Bird discount and the kids offer, it’s enabled me to buy Season Tickets for all three of us which is something I’ve always wanted to do.
Similarly David Brown, 54, was one of the first to buy a Season Ticket, snapping up his ticket just four minutes after they went on sale. David of Netherton, also bought tickets for his two sons, 14-year-old Leon and 17-year-old Lewis.
“I’ve had Season Tickets in the past, but the cost stopped me in the last few years. I’ve got two lads and as they’re growing up, they’re getting more anxious about going the game so I said we would go for it this year,” he said.
“The pricing is attractive and I’ve taken advantage of the early bird discount as it made it more affordable this year. We would not have been able to do it without the instalment plan because of that it makes it affordable. It’s much easier and when you’re getting three Season Tickets, it makes a difference.”
