Chesterfield fans share mixed views on next year's season ticket pricing structure

We've been speaking to the club's fans ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

A group of Chesterfield fans say they don't have a problem paying more for a season ticket-as long as the club deliver results on the pitch.

Season tickets for adults have gone up by around fifty pounds, although prices for under 21's and under 16's have reduced.

This Spireites supporter told Peak FM it won't put them off going, but they're expecting to see more quality as a result; "If it means we get better players and a better season overall next year, then I've got no problem with it, but I expect us to be competing for automatic promotion."

Another fan shared a similar view; "To get up we've got to spend a lot more. Everyone following the club wants to see us back in the football league, but we won't get promoted unless we spend more, so it's the obvious way to make more money."

Once more, this perspective was echoed by a different fan, who feels the move makes sense; "I understand the economics of it. If it means I have to pay an extra £2 or £3 per game, then so be it. I'll be there more often than not next year."

However, the proposed increase hasn't sat well with everybody who follows the Spireites, with one supporter expressing their disgust at the decision; "It's an absolute shambles. We've been treated to diabolical football all season. Sheridan's come in, and I get that he needs a bigger budget, but why are we taking the shortfall again?"

Chesterfield FC say the most cost effective way to watch the club is to purchase a season ticket, as opposed to buying tickets on a match-by-match basis.
