Record Season Ticket Sales For Everton

Fri 3rd Jun 2016 | Marketing & PR

Everton Football Club is celebrating record-breaking Season Ticket and strong hospitality sales with almost 31,000 seats already sold for the 2016/17 campaign.

The Premier League side has now sold eight out of every ten seats at Goodison Park and with two months of sales still to go represents almost 1,500 more Season Tickets than the previous highest final total in 2014/15.

The current total represents almost 3,500 more Season Tickets than the equivalent period last year, approaching a 15% increase across both Season Ticket and hospitality sales, and stands at 7,700 more than the total number from just five seasons ago, an increase of one-third.

Robert Elstone, Everton’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We would like to thank our supporters for committing their support to the Club for the 2016/17 season.

“These numbers reflect the dedication of our fans, an appreciation of the Club’s approach to ticket prices and of course, anticipation for the season ahead.

“Back in March when we announced the new pricing structure, our aim was to give something back to our fans and demonstrate how much we appreciate their support.

“We acknowledged the amazing new TV deal and felt it only right that we shared some of that uplift with our fans. It is extremely pleasing to see such a positive response and I am particularly delighted to see that almost one-in-four of our record sales figure are young Season Ticket holders.

“The new pricing structure proves we have made football more affordable for all, and significantly so for our younger fans. It's really pleasing that we're changing the age profile of fans at Goodison and making a positive and enduring contribution to the future of the Club.”
