Altrincham FC director Bill Waterson writes:
Earlier today, Altrincham FC confirmed that Phil Parkinson and Neil Sorvel will be remaining at The J.Davidson Stadium for at least another three seasons, a breakthrough that represents the biggest commitment this club have ever made to a management team and one that shows our intent to keep progressing.
We ended last season justifiably acting like one of the biggest clubs in the Vanarama National League North, and we will start next season with the same ambitious attitude.
As a club we are moving forward, aiming for new heights. There will need to be significant change next season, and we are planning for significant new developments at the club.
We will use this season as a platform for creating an environment fit for the National Division in the coming seasons. Our ambition will be manifest and our progress measurable.
In this environment, where driving more revenue becomes ever more critical, we have reviewed our admission and season ticket prices for next season.
Given the massive upsurge in support from a new vocal younger contingent, and the fact that we are creating our fan base for 2030 and beyond, we will not be raising prices for Juniors and U-12s.
However, we will be increasing admission prices for Adults and Concessions by £1 for each category. There will continue to be no surcharge for entry to the Main Stand. Our prices continue to be around the average admission prices for the NLN last season.
As far as season tickets are concerned, the price for Adults and for Concessions increases by £15 each, but an early bird discount of £10 will apply for all purchases made before June 30th, 2019. There will be no increase in the cost for Junior and U-12s season tickets.
We believe this additional revenue through the gate will help fund our plans for 2019-20 and create the best possible environment for Phil, Neil and the players to mount our campaign for promotion, after they went so close last season.
In this context, we want you to continue providing the magnificent support that played such a pivotal role in us reaching the play-offs in our first season back in the Vanarama National League North.
With the best management team in non-League at the helm, and your incredible support often equating to an extra man on the pitch, we can approach next season with high expectations.
Season Tickets (Early Bird Discount in parentheses):
Adult £235 (£225)
Concession £185 (£175)
