King's Lynn Town react over ticket prices
King's Lynn Town has announced changes to its pricing structure for home games at The Walks.
Poor crowds for the Linnets this season have been blamed on the cost of tickets from the National League side.
Stephen Cleeve, the club chairman, met with supporters at a fans' forum on Friday and in response the Linnets released a statement.
The statement said: "Following on from the announcement by Chairman Stephen Cleeve at the Fans Forum on Friday 1, October, 2021, the club wishes to clarify the position relating to ticket sales."
It goes on to outline "a simple two-tier structure" which means for category B games princes will be significantly reduced, up to £6 for seating
Category A (which will be applicable for home games versus Grimsby, Notts County, Stockport and Wrexham) will be as per the current pricing structure which means standing is £21 (concessions £19/kids £5), general seating £23 (cons £21/kids £11) and centre block premier seating £26 (no cons).
But category B pricing will apply to all other games (excluding cup matches) and that will be standing £18 (cons £16/kids £5) and seating £20 (cons £18/kids £5). There is no premier seating at category B games.
The statement adds: "The recent back-to-back promotions, alongside the Covid pandemic have created massive and rapid changes for the club.
"We aspire to match the achievements of the team, behind the scenes too. The playing staff, manager, coaches, general staff and volunteers need your support, both vocally and financially to drive this club to new success.
"There will be further changes behind the scenes in the coming months, so please keep watching our website, social media channels and local notice boards and press for updates.
"We hope that you will get behind the team and the club in general. Lets get The Walks rocking
again. 'We are Lynn'."
