You must be joking charging £50 when we are about to enter the third month of the season.
The most you should be charging is£30.
Are they trying to bankrupt the supporters?

No, they're offering a discount on the pay as you go price as a reward for committing up front.

Take it or leave it.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

It's not really about the month of the season. We happen to have had 7 away games and 5 home games. There is a £4 saving if you buy the pass - but if you think you are better off paying on the gate then as Spyman says take it or leave it.

Rubbish, people can park where they want, it's their choice, why must people always be vilified for choosing not to pay for parking? Maybe he puts money in the club another way. I refuse to pay for parking when there are better and cheaper alternatives but I support the club in many other ways such as player and match sponsorships as well as the lottery - there's only so much each individual can/will do.

The main thing is he gets off his arse and drives to another town to support his football club.

That's his choice but why advise others to do the same when the money does go to the club (especially those supporters who don't park safely )

I hardly think it's any secret that you can park for free in the surrounding areas and I'm also sure there won't be a mass exodus of paying parkers at the next game as a result of this.

Might be worth letting MJ know though just so he can put it into his forecast.

How offensive do you want to be on this thread?

As divas said we can park where we want and won't be made to feel guilty for it, don't suppose my attitude of buying shirts, hats, scarfs, 50/50 tickets, going to every home match and a few away, shares, DFSC, Darlotrust (as was) donating to back to Darlo fund, Uncovered sponsorship etc counts really as i'm obviously not a real fan committed to the club all because I choose to park my car somewhere else because

1. Out of reach of balls coming over the fence
2. I always shop at Tesco following the match for fuel/food so may as well park there
3. Hate waiting in the melee to get out of the club car park, especially the overflow one.

I don't expect gratitude for spending money on the club but certainly don't expect to be vilified because we don't use the club car park by someone who is I understand is associated with the Fans owned club.

If people wish to pay for their parking then that's their choice. Personally I park round the corner in Sainsbury's and I've never had any problems. But if the club can get some extra revenue from parking, then that's fine with me.

Posting as a shareholder rather than as a member of the SG group. It is peoples choice but thought it rather sad that Harry was directing people to free parking when it is a thread about car parking arrangements the club have put in place.
