“We were delighted to offer significant season ticket price reductions and are proud of the fact that more than one in four of our record-breaking season ticket base are young fans, with many on their first steps of a lifelong relationship with the Club," he says on the Premier League website.
“When we look around Goodison Park, on matchday, we feel confident we will be handing the Club on to future custodians, with the next generation of Evertonians firmly in place.”

It's basic common sense that, if we cannot sell out to adults, then we should at least target kids (who will probably be accompanied by an adult). On the other hand, it is good to see that young blues get into the match-going habit to a far greater extent than their red tellypudlian friends. Hopefully, one day there'll be demand for far more, and the new capacity to fill.
