East Lothian Saint

Why should we buy a season ticket?

Over 1000 season tickets sold. Way ahead of past sales.  Want your favourite seat? Best get in there quickly.

I see this figure is being ridiculed by Dundee, DU and Dung supporters who apparently in the same time scale have all sold more than double our 1000. Surprising if true but no reason to doubt their figs. Kinda puts our sales into sharp perspective, is the off field turmoil causing hesitation or as I alluded to previously, is the early bird period far too long (I would have bought sooner but pointless probably plenty doing the same).

I don't doubt their figures.  Doesn't change the fact that oür figures have improved.  Off fièkd uncertainties are one reason perhaps that it's not more.  Problems with the website also didn't help.  Extended period for the early bird might also delay purchase.  Still.. We have 4 great seats to watch the action from next season.

In answer to the thread title, if anyone needs it explaining to them, then perhaps not buying one is the best option to themselves.

The advantages to the individual or club speak for themselves as each persons needs / situation / reasons will vary & the obvious close season cash flow to the club is clear.

I'm pretty sure the final ST count will be healthy enough. 

If I was a Dunfermline or Utd supporter , I think I'd be more concerned about another season in the Championship.

In a day of exciting speculation I couldn't wait any longer, that's me and the Mrs renewed. 

If we end up with a management team of Guti,Kluivert,McCarthy and Larsson seats might be at a premium.

No Gutierrez. No Kluivert.  No NcCarthy or Larrson but a recent Scottish Cup Winning Manager to take us forward.

I'm more than happy with the boards decision. 

Bring the challenge on.

There is a record being broken this season for new never before season ticket holders Daily Telegraph. Glitzy interview online. 

Nonsense. St Mirren interviews would only be glitzy had we appointed Guti or Kluivert.

In that article they also announced the diddy cup is to become even diddier with the inclusion of two English national league teams Sutton United and Boreham Wood. Boreham Wood? Boreham Dead more like. Diluted to the extent it's not just watery. It's p!sh

I buy mine as an opportunity to watch the team from the club that I support in a town that provided me with a great opportunity in my career.  It also gives me an opportunity to catch up with my sons and grandson. An added benefit is bumping into  people you have known in years gone past. I can always appreciate that price can be a barrier for some but for most I think the prices offer great value. Here's to record sales and an exciting season.

I'm in Paisley this Saturday and was looking to buy my STs while in town however the OS has the ticket office opening hours as Mon - Fri only.  Surely this can't be right, closed on a Saturday ???

Best to call them and buy that way Ayrshire. I've found them to be very helpful.

I can do but it's piss poor. Little surprise we are way behind the likes of Killie and the Dundee clubs , we make very little effort to maximize sales bar price.

Anyone know when the seats reserved from last season will be released out?

trying to get a couple of season tickets for main stand, but not a great choice in the middle blocks.

Also, the website is horseshit. Won’t work on Chrome, iPhone or iPad. And surely we could open the ticket office for a couple hours on a Saturday?

Try the Puffin browser on iPad. I agree though the website is shite.
