King's Lynn Town reveal their National League ticket prices
King's Lynn Town chairman Stephen Cleeve says a higher standard of football and increased business costs has led to an increase in ticket prices for next season.
Depending on age and season ticket category, season ticket prices to watch the Linnets in the National League will range from £46 (under-16s) to £575 (adults).
Following their second successive promotion, the charges represent a significant rise on last season's prices.
But expenditure will undoubtedly increase as Ian Culverhouse looks to put together a competitive side in non-league's top flight.
Speaking on the club's website, Cleeve said: "We have taken our time and considered our approach on our pricing structure for next season, taking into account various factors across the business.
"We have come up with what I believe is a fair balance and a structure right across our options which reflect the extremely high standard of football this club now finds itself at.
"I want, and I'm sure you do as well, a team that is competitive, but that does not come cheap I am afraid to say. "Add to that the extra staffing that is now needed throughout the business off the pitch, the prices had to increase."
The club has added some new initiatives to their pricing for next season, including general admission tickets being cheaper if bought online early ahead of a fixture.
If tickets for a Saturday fixture are bought by midnight on a Sunday or tickets for a Tuesday fixture by midnight on Friday, the early bird price will apply.
General admission for 16 to 17-year-olds and students in full-time education has been scrapped, due to the system being abused last season.
"I really didn't want to do this, but last year we had various instances where the system was being abused and I will not put up with it," said Cleeve.
Other than seated tickets, fans have the option of covering the cost over three payments, but no season tickets for concessions or students will be issued until the club has seen a valid piece of identity.
