Cheltenham Town FC FOOTBALL Latest Sports News League One

“There’s a cost of living crisis and the fans come first”- Cheltenham Town director Murry Toms on the decision to freeze season ticket prices.

Cheltenham Town have frozen their season ticket prices ahead of the upcoming League One campaign in a bid to thank fans for their ongoing support.

The 2023/24 season will mark the Robins’ third successive year in League One after a successful season saw them finish in 15th place with 54 points.

Director Murry Toms was keen to express his gratitude towards the fans for their unwavering support.

“The fans have been excellent and even though we’ve been through some tough patches this season, I’m proud to say we’ve come out the other side together as one.

“Football’s an expensive business and without the fans none of this would be possible.”

For loyal Robins fans the price of an adult ticket remains at £409 with a child ticket costing £85.

“You can’t just keep putting prices up and I think it’s important in the current economic climate to understand the effects that watching football has on people’s lives.

“We’re not in a place as a club to make it any more difficult for our fans to come and watch us play football so I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to freeze these prices to say thank you.”

The decision has received widespread praise amongst the Robins’ fanbase with many fans taking to social media to support the decision.

Fans have also been told that if purchased before June 2nd, their season tickets will come in a special presentation pack, complete with an exclusive silver ‘members badge’ to mark the 25th anniversary of Cheltenham Town’s FA Trophy win in 1998.

When asked if he could give a message to the club’s fans before next season Toms had this to say:

“I think we shouldn’t be too complacent about where we are as a club and being in League One, that’s the main thing.

“It hasn’t always been like this for Town fans so every now and then it’s important to recognise the wonderful achievement of being in this league and making an effort to be present in the moment, soaking it up.

“Some of the younger fans might take it for granted slightly but being where we are is massive when you take into consideration our budget compared to some of the other sides we’re battling against.”

The Robins have managed to secure some brilliant results this season against the likes of Ipswich, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton.

Wade Elliott’s side will be looking to carry on the momentum however uncertainty lingers over the future of influential star striker Alfie May.

With the 29-year-old having one more year remaining on his contract, offers from the likes of Charlton and Wrexham are expected to be imminent.

For Robins fans only time will tell as to next seasons campaign, however they will be hoping to maintain their hold on League One and potentially climb higher up a competitive table.
