When we were qualifying for tournaments (2012 & 2016) it was piss easy to get season tickets.

Will never be an issue

The 2024 games will all be Nations League and friendlies. Demand will be so low, I don't know why they phrased it as "waiting list"

Seems a strange one alright. We’re on a downward curve but demand for tickets is rising. Maybe we are the best fans in the world 😂

They sold out last year, thats why there is a waiting list. I suspect there will be a good amount available

Because they sold out last year, theres 23k ST up for renewal. The waiting list will be for anyone looking to get one who hasn't previously had one and the numbers will entirely depend on the ones who don't renew.

Wouldn't be so quick to disregard the demand for tickets post Covid the Crowds across football in this country have skyrocketed.

There was massive demand this year because people wanted to take their kids to see Mbappe. Back to normal next year.

Whats normal? ST numbers have only ever gone up year on year. It was like 5k in its first year if I recall and was up to 18 or 19k the year before this one. You could be right but I cant see there being a huge drop off.

They offer interest free repayment plans. Last year you could secure it by paying €1 and then pay the balance after Xmas. Hopefully something similar this year

They'll hardly drop prices due to the opposition next year. The ST is and always has been very good value. One of the few things the FAI has gotten right over the years

650 quid for 2 season tickets in East or West Lower in a Nations League and Friendly year is awful, awful value for money.

You have an extra friendly there this time too and no marquee teams. It's terrible value.

Well, it depends on why you chose to go to games. Event junkies and people who's interest in going is based on the opposition may not be happy. I get 5 Ireland games for €40 where I sit in the West upper and I'm very happy with that as I go to support Ireland

We had 6 home games across 5 international breaks this year. Same number of breaks next year so would expect either 5 or 6 again.

Theres always someone to moan about something. ST is great value and long may it continue. 

Nobody is forcing anyone to buy it and if you dont think its good value then dont buy it or try switch to a lower cat ticket.

Who's moaning? I certainly haven't said it's bad value, I'll pay it anyway. Am more concerned for what overall numbers will be given the poor commercial performance of the executive and need for them to maximise sales.

They have forgone €12m odd from not being able to attract a men's sponsor for the last four years. 

The only reason the books look better is the cashflow from the state particularly during COVID.

The debts will be there in a decade.

But is it not the case that they are going a different direction in terms of looking for multiple partners rather then one big sponsor hence the deals with the likes of Circle K?

On the debt, it was reported they've lowered it significantly even if there is a long way to go.

HI 

 

The family season ticket has increased by €5 per ticket per game.

 

All other pricing remains the same.

This is bollox. My season ticket is gone from €360 to €460 and I have to pay €230 a month before Christmas after already paying €360, 8 months ago.

Don’t think I’ll be renewing.

As in will they give you a discount as you have multiple tickets? I would seriously doubt it

Or are you trying to reduce the number of tickets you have? If so, I'd probably email the ticket office to find out. You should be able to really

That is just blatant false advertising from them. To say prices remain unchanged and putting up the price of a family ticket without mentioning it in the email is just plain stupid. Asking for a backlash

They must want people not to renew family tickets so they can flog them as single tickets. A 25% increase is ridiculous alone but when you consider we had France and Netherlands this year and only NL and friendlies next year it’s outrageous.

Sorry - I edited my post above when I re-read your post. I'd email the ticket office to find out. Seems like you should be able to just renew 4 but ticketmaster platform is a shambles so it wouldn't surprise me if you couldn't choose the tickets you'd like to renew. See what the website says tomorrow I suppose when you login to see if that's an option

That is just blatant false advertising from them in fairness. To say prices remain unchanged and putting up the price of a family ticket without mentioning it in the email is just plain stupid. Asking for a backlash 
I can’t justify paying it. I’m so pissed off.

Maybe it's worth creating a new thread with specific questions on the season ticket for the SLO to hopefully get answers for.

I don't remember having to have half paid by November last year lads. That's a bit of a killer timing wise. Maybe I'm wrong though
I paid €1 last October and the balance in March this year. 

That's what I thought. Wonder why they changed it. It definitely adds a bit of pressure

I agree!! Ouch

They said that they hadn't increased the adult ticket price. The family ticket is up by 100 euro and the child tickets are up by 10 euro. 

2 adults and 2 children on individual tickets would be 530 as opposed to 460 this year. Last year it was 510 vs 360. Definitely a big jump there and as people have said, the games aren't against as high profile teams. 

Maybe just putting a fiver on all the tickets would have been a better idea. It would probably bring in as much as what they have done without really pissing off any supporters.

Which matches are included in the 2024 FAI Season Ticket?


“…..and a potential UEFA Euro 2024 play off.”


I was under the impression that that would have been part of the current ST?    Probably wrong !! But, we won’t have a play off anyway so it’s a moot point! LOL


Also Thought this was an interesting point:

“In the event the Association does not deliver 6 games – a credit will be applied to your Season Ticket Account for 2025.”

Season tickets just apply for a calendar year.
In the past there hasn't been the full amount of games so a credit has been applied.
We've also had an extra game for free previously also.

Not much use offering the €1 option when your still going to be looking for 50% of people just a few weeks later. Option was great last year could renew it for the euro and then pay it off after Christmas time

I don't think it's too bad the way some were going on I assumed they took everything in November,  OK I can see how if you have multiple tickets it would be pricey but you can always go in and pay off parts of it in between now and November.

I suppose my question is does it automatically take the payment on that date or do you have to go in a pay manually?

Anybody else getting quoted for the full season ticket price rather than the renewal rate? 
Also was it possible to change seats through the ticketmaster platform or does that have to be done through FAI?

The other thing here is that people committing to family tickets agree to bring minimum four bums on seats in undesirable Seats in the ground. The fai justifying this increase by saying we are aligning the tickets to the full cost adult and child prices, for those not committing to four tickets per match and in categories that gave choices over locations is not a like for like comparison.

Some things never change. I have my doubts it was a mistake....if it was then why was it not included in the table within the email.

Why wasn't the full price for new season tickets in the renewal email?

I'd imagine because there's no need for it to be seeing as it's a price freeze for renewals with the exception of the family ticket.

Doesn't help that the pricing link in the renewal emails shows the full prices as opposed to the renewal prices detailed in yesterday's advance emails.

Yes as mentioned up thread a bit.

It's the only one that didn't have the renewal rate frozen.

Some people with normal season tickets got a non renewal rate on their invoices which got sorted by the TO, assumed that was what you were referring to cause the post didn't mention family tickets.

Just to add, their explanation to me was, it was a typo, adult tickets remain unchanged. 

That should mean that there's only a €50 increase not €100. €5 per 2 child tickets for 5 games.

Would €76 Euro for 2 adults and 2 children for an event not be considered value? (Even if how they have gone about not informing people about the rise in price is wrong).

Depends what the original price was - what used to be exceptional value now might be only good value etc. Also depends on what people view as value to them - I was merely asking the question out of curiosity.

Is it a case where they have f*cked it up with previous pricing for family ST's and theyre rectifying it now? Is the main issue the communication? Would yous have paid for the family season ticket if the increase was communicated beforehand?

Would agree with Borussia that €76 for 2x adults and 2x children still seems like great value to be honest.

Just to clarify, mine was a genuine question - Being out of Ireland most of the time I don't know on these things. 

I do think that sneaking through an increase on family tickets via the child part when a lot of people are still finding things tough isn't the right way to go about things.

Lots of issues. 25% price increase. Being told there’s no price increase. Being told that adult prices remain unchanged but they’re increasing adult tickets on the family season ticket. Not having the freedom with family season ticket to move to a cheaper category. Having to pay half the season ticket amount 1 month before Christmas where last year I could pay on March 1st. I’m sure there’s more than that but that’s all I can think of at the moment.

I do think that sneaking through an increase on family tickets via the child part when a lot of people are still finding things tough isn't the right way to go about things.
I agree with that also, I'm just curious would certain people still not renew the ST if the increase had been communicated earlier.

How do we still have people trying to claim that 2 friendlies and 3 nations league games on a season ticket which in some instances is costing 325.50 is value.

It's absolute robbery to maintain the price from a qualification campaign. A campaign that had France and Holland.

Theres also the strong possibility that there will be five games vs 6 - bear in mind the last season ticket had 4 competitive homes. This one has a max of 3 competitives. So there could be a credit, that doesnt help people that have to pay for a game that probably wont even happen next year right now.

Possibility of Wales, Finland and Kazakhstan in a group with some crap friendlies vs Latvia and New Zealand calibre sh*te. England and Norway (and that's only with a fit Haaland) are the only two teams that make the ticket worth anything financially. Because every single game here will see availability and people can pick and choose which they attend.

Does anybody actually think that tickets for the nations league will be hard to get? And you have to pay half before Christmas too just because.

Season ticket waiting list. Give me a break. There'll be thousands not renewing.

Personally my season ticket is €200 so 6 games €33 per game, great value for me, no complaints there.

I go to watch Ireland play, couldn't care less who it's against, be it Kazakhstan or England so I'm not interested in the argument of what players the other team has because I'm not there to watch them play. 

Everyone will perceive the value differently, seat location, how many games you think you'll get to etc but €33 for me to go to an international game, not turning that down.
