Apparently we’ve up to now sold over 900 up to now. How many did we sell in total last season?

Quite sure it was a handful under 2000 before the first game, and eventually over 2000 including half season tickets.
900 seems very promising for the first 9 days, with presumably many like myself waiting 'till the end of this month (pay days) to renew mine.

Cheers for the info! I renewed early this year having discovered the magic ( ??????) of credit cards! I’m far too old for such folly but am really sold on the idea of dying owing a £million. That’s a lot of season tickets mind you !

Does anyone know when they intend to send out the tickets (for those of us that paid a postal charge) is it near the start of the season or is it as the orders are processed - which I believe is what happened last season.

Something I genuinely don't understand. Back in January I bought a season ticket for Sligo Rovers. As an OAP it cost only €180 for 18 games. It arrived by post four days later. It's a plastic credit card sized object read electronically when I enter the stadium. Now if Sligo Rovers are able to do that so efficiently, I really don't see why Newport County can't be equally efficient.
It is only a little thing. But it is this type of simple administration that hopefully the new Jenkins' regime can put right.

I don't think they will be sent out in dribs and drabs, although I seem to recall last season mine arrived sooner than I expected it. My guess is that when the early bird/renewal date comes around, they will start sending them. That is likely to account for the vast majority.

Club now reporting that sales have just gone over 1000. cheers

On a related subject, I was very impressed with the new electronic brochure where the Club has neatly parceled every commercial opportunity for the coming season. This would suggest a very welcome and major uplift on previous commercial activities and income.

I'm really pleased with the post Taunton has put up. In and of themselves they are little things. However they all mount up and in getting this right means that our club might just start to reach it's full potential.

Bang on Stan.

It bewilders me.  The club has not embraced readily available technology to sell supporters products with ease.
It's all about making the experience of supporting our club more enjoyable!

That’s good to hear Wattsville boy, let’s hope a few more get sold before we start eh? All helps at this time of year.

Absolutely. But now the 'early bird' prices are gone I suspect the surge will reduce to dribs and drabs.

But similar numbers already to last season despite the eight game losing run at the end of the season and a poorer positional finish than the previous year. I do wonder whether some early business on new contracts or new signings could have driven that number up further...

Yes, it’s all a bit quiet atm. Should be back from the beach soon and thinking of pre-season.
