    AFC Wimbledon have done a similar thing since their enforced reformation. All season tickets have an optional donation of £50 which many fans have used to further fund the fans’ club.

    It’s not the same at all Martin. All clubs are more than happy to get people to pay more and many suggest donations – its what most membership organisations, political parties, pressure groups do too. Saying that the baseline price is much lower and letting the punter set what’s affordable is completely revolutionary in football and nothing like what AFC Wimbledon did (and I speak as a womble!)

    Sounds similar to me. How many other football clubs include a donation section on their season ticket application forms? More importantly, how many other clubs’ fans donate that way?

    Sound like both are doing a good thing to me and it should be applauded.

    I dread to think what the price will be when my name comes up on the Spurs waiting list, probably when the new stadium is built. Maybe i’ll have won the lottery by then.

    Shame Huddersfield couldn’t continue with their pricing scheme. My ticket last season was £175 but would cost a whopping £380 to renew for next season.

    I’m getting a Leamington FC season ticket for £135 instead…

    Leamington FC season tickets cost more than Hertha Berlin (and the vast majority of Bundesliga clubs). That’s the real travesty.
