Fleetwood Town is proud to launch the new Onward Card, giving fans much more than just access to all the club’s Sky Bet League One home matches.
The Onward Card, which celebrates the town’s motto, goes on sale from Friday June 1, gives supporters the chance to make a unique long-term commitment to the club, gaining access to all 23 home games each season as well as exclusive invite-only events throughout the year.
The new card is a direct replacement for traditional season tickets and existing season ticket holders have until 5pm on Monday June 18 to secure their seats and purchase their new Onward Card. After this date, their seat will be available to purchase on general sale.
And to make watching the Cod Army affordable for all, Fleetwood Town supporters will purchase it via direct debit from as little as £6 per month for Under 16s, £12 per month for Seniors and Under 25s and just £17 per month for an Adult – as cheap as just £170 a year!
The first year will be paid over a 10-month period, transitioning to ongoing monthly payments from July 2019.
Example of pricing structure below:
June 2018 (Year One) Adult Onward Card priced at £170 paid over ten months = £17 per month*
June 2019 (Year Two) Adult Onward Card priced at £170 over 12 months = £14.16 per month*
*Prices subject to change - these have been used as an example
Fleetwood Town Chairman Andy Pilley said: "The Onward Card is something which we consider to be quite revolutionary. We take pride in being a forward thinking club and we have listened to our customers on this and the vision is one being Highbury being full and to make football more affordable for the local community.
"It is a scheme which is similar to a season ticket but different in many ways. It makes watching the Cod Army more affordable and allows our supporters to spread the cost of the price over a ten month period. We believe this makes it much more affordable for those in the community to come and watch Fleetwood Town.
"It brings the average cost down to £4 per week and we'd like to think that’s a price which will allow everyone to come and join us at Highbury Stadium to get behind the team and the town as a whole.
"We feel the payment plan will make it much easier and more affordable for everyone in the town and surrounding areas to come together to watch what we aim to be an exciting, winning team.”
As well as access to all 23 Sky Bet League One home matches at the Highbury Stadium, additional benefits for Onward Card holders includes:
- Exclusive access to ‘Meet the Head Coach’ evenings at Highbury Stadium.
- Invitation to supporter events with players at Poolfoot and Highbury.
- Discounts at various Fleetwood Town FC outlets such as Crossbar and Grill, Poolfoot Farm.
- Regular, exciting offers from selected club partners throughout the year, such as Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Cuffe and Taylor and Merlin
