Blues' season ticket success continues

, 12 June, 0comments  |  Jump to most recent

The clamour for 2014/15 Season Tickets has now seen over 26,000 Evertonians secure their seats at Goodison for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

A hugely successful Early Bird window earlier this year saw a year-on-year increase in purchasers of 21%.

And the Great Seats Released event last weekend brought about a new uplift in sales, with over 1,000 Evertonians visiting Goodison over two days.

That desire to be a part of more memorable matchdays means that 96% of fans have now renewed from last season and that there have been almost 5,000 more sales this summer than at the same point 12 months ago.

Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said: The number of Everton fans who have bought for next season is a real testament to the loyalty of our supporters, the excitement that the Manager and the players have created and, we hope, the affordability of our Season Tickets.

I would like to thank all the Evertonians who have joined us, returned or renewed and we look forward to welcoming even more fans over the course of the summer.

Interest in seasonal memberships in Everton's lounges is also on the rise. There are already 35% more members signed up for next season than there were this time last year. Indeed, approaching 1,100 fans have signed up across our nine lounges next season.

All this comes less than two weeks ahead of the first key landmark ahead of the 2014/15 campaign – the Premier League fixtures, which are released on 18 June.

The new season itself kicks off on 16 August and Everton will seek to build upon the record-breaking campaign under Roberto Martinez which concluded with victory at Hull City last month.

It's not just fans excited about the forthcoming season. Martinez has spoken in hugely positive terms about his plans and ambitions for the upcoming campaign

The points tally was a really good target to achieve but I feel if you asked the players now, they wouldn't say they overachieved with that, said the Blues boss. They would say we could do better and that has to be the aim.

And his enthusiasm has been mirrored by the swathes of Blues fans signing up for next season.
