'Guarantee Your Seat' Deadline Approaches

, 2 May, 38comments  |  Jump to most recent

Tomorrow (Tuesday 3 May) is the last chance for Everton Season Ticket holders to guarantee their seat for the 2016/17 season.

Season Ticket holders are being urged to not run the risk of losing their current seat, with a number of existing Season Ticket holders ready to transfer into the best seats when they become available.

Anybody wishing to purchase a new Season Ticket for 2016/17 will continue to be able to purchase at the Early Bird price until 25 May. And, from 8am on Monday 10 May, the very best seats not renewed by current Season Ticket holders will be released on general sale for new fans to purchase

The Box Office will remain open until 6pm tomorrow, while the ticket booth at Everton Two open until 7pm. There is also the option to renew online until midnight.
Season Ticket prices for 2016/17 have been reduced in price by more than 5% for all Adult Season Ticket holders while prices for Junior Season Tickets have been slashed with an extension to the upper limit from 16 to 18 as part of the Club's commitment to making football affordable.

Adult seats are available, for the 2016/17 season, from £420 during the Early Bird window which represents a ‘free game' when compared to this season's prices. Junior Season Ticket prices for fans aged between 11 and 18 will be £149 throughout the stadium, less than £8 per game and a £50 price reduction for this age group in all stands with the exception of the Family Enclosure, where the price has been frozen at £149.

The Club has extended the age range for Young Adult Season Tickets to those from 18 up to 22 with a set price across all stands of £299. The top price was previously £382.

Kids' Season Tickets (aged 11 and under) have been frozen at £95 – just £5 per game – and are available in any stand across the stadium.

Prices are also reduced in the Senior category (65 and over) with a Season Ticket in any stand in the stadium reduced to £299, representing a saving of between £29 and £86 for the 3,000 fans in this category.

My mate and his son have said they are not renewing their seats till Martinez has been sacked.

They don't care if they loose their seats which they have had for 9 years.

This is where the committed show themselves and the weak go shopping. You want to take part in the protest to get Martinez out in a meaningful way? Don't buy the product in the form of a season ticket. Pay as you go.

Martin (5) But I thought the board knew what they were doing so why should the fans have to force them to do the right thing by the club?
Martin Mason
7 Posted 02/05/2016 at 21:57:25
Patrick, then you thought wrong; I have stated clearly that I do not support the board on the issue of the manager. You want to do something about RM? If yes then stop buying the product like me. You want to be a compliant fan who doesn't really care above the odd moan on TW? Then buy a season ticket.

Leicester are champions, that is all that matters tonight.

What a cunning plan by BK,sack RM the day after discount ends then all the reluctant season ticket holders will have to pay full price.

Its a joke this, I've had my ticket over 20 years, seeing us win fuck all, and never complaining.

Im going to renew my ticket tomorrow, along with my two sons tickets, but for the second season running im almost fuming with myself for buying my ticket whilst having to endure Martinez style football.

I will be heart broken driving the first game if Roberto is at the helm.

It doesn't matter if you renew or not! Ten, twenty or thirty years being a season ticket holder. Television money is where it's at. How many struggle to attend due to television times of matches. We renew for the love of the club and just may be we may do a Leicester!
Tony Byrne

Don't do it until the fraud has been sacked. Vote with your feet is the only way the board will take notice.

I've done mine and will be looking to relocate to a better seat should one become available. Can't see why I have to wait until 10th if "guarantee" runs only until 3rd – surely the reality is that one can wait until 9th and still retain their own seat? There is no real significance in 3rd.

Ian (#10). Spot on and what I've said for a while – as main income stream is now TV money, a new stadium moves down on list of priorities. My view is that getting it right on pitch is absolute priority – that brings in more TV money which then enables further strengthening and finally a new stadium.

Martin#5&7. I understand your point but it is ironic that there is now a valid argument that the armchair supporter is doing more for the Club than the match goer!!

ps: Predictive text came up with Boer instead of goer – an omen?!?

Colin Hughes
13 Posted 03/05/2016 at 10:29:54
I predict a 20% drop in season ticket sales partly to do with the manager and partly down to 22 years without success or a new stadium. Why should we be paying more than Leicester or Man City fans to watch football when they have modern venue with no obstructed views and champions league football to offer?
Colin Oakes
14 Posted 03/05/2016 at 11:18:31
My bet is the delay between the 3rd & 10th is in place so they can directly contact current seat holders who have not renewed and offer them a 'last chance' to secure those seats again. My ST's are in the lower bullens and would hardly expect a scramble for those seats if I let them go, but if they go so be it.

I like the story of the Aston Villa fan who left his tickets on the inside of his car, on show. He said when he came back, someone had smashed his front window in and left two more tickets with the ones he'd left.

Could happen at Goodison Park next season if Robbie is still here.

Eugene Ruane

Just renewed.

I know, I know, I know...

If I'm honest, if it was just about the football, I deffo wouldn't have.

There are however other factors, ie: at my age (soon 57) I'm aware it becomes easier not to do..stuff.

And if I'm not at the match, I'm in the boozer watching the match – so probably better (for me) once every couple of weeks, to have to get out, get on an 81, walk down County Rd, meet mates, scream, shout, get the blood flowing etc – I think of my season ticket as a cardio-vascular aid (I do get a lift home, but only after walking to the bottom of Priory Rd).

I would feel I had got myself a good deal if this avvy, BK resigned, Martinez got the order of the Spanish archer and a serious looking Moshiri appeared outside Goodison in his camel-hair, holding a piece of paper and made a statement along the lines..

"I have been involved so far only as a spectator and though what I have seen has disturbed me greatly, I have said nothing. That changes today. I can't guarantee trophies, but I can and will guarantee that the 'plucky Everton' loser attitude that, in my view, has prevented this club competing, ends now. There will be investment in the world's best managers, players and coaches. Goodison Park will be redeveloped as a 55,000 seater, state of the art stadium with the best corporate facilities on the planet"

(Imagines he then folds paper, turns on his heel, heads to Supper bar, orders a Chop Suey roll and a portion of Scallops, insisting 'Plenty o' salt on vinegar on the scallops, lad.')

Re. your opening paragraphs I am reminded of the words of Samuel Beckett:

"Habit is the ballast that chains the dog to its vomit."

Once you support Everton, the studded collar goes around the neck irrespective of which manager is currently yanking on the chain.

Eugene Ruane
18 Posted 03/05/2016 at 12:15:48
Tony (17) - "Habit is the ballast that chains the dog to its vomit."

I can't really argue with that.

Maybe, in relation to supporting Everton, 'the Hibbert habit' could be used to describe the phenomenon.

Eugene don't listen to Tony

I've just retired after a lifetime of working offshore, so was unable to get to 2/3 of the games.

I couldn't wait to retire so I could buy a season ticket again and attend every home match.I refuse to buy one while Martinez is still manager. Sick as fuck!

Tony McNulty
21 Posted 03/05/2016 at 12:47:05

It sounds like you have your candidate for the "Everton manager who most made me want to vomit" competition.

Great quote from Robert Browning who is our young defender Tyias Browning's great great great grandfather. Maybe.

Tony. Dunno about vomit............maybe "go postal!"

Seriously though I'm pig sick that he's still there and I'll miss the early bird discount but I refuse to part with my hard earned and watch us struggle, which I think we will next season under him!

Laurie, Eugene,

Or in my case,

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."

Or march right over the fucking dreams, stopping only to stamp on them like a Flamenco dancer.

Sorry about the f word. It's the way I feel right now.

Eugene Ruane

Ray (24) - 'Or march right over the fucking dreams, stopping only to stamp on them like a Flamenco dancer. Sorry about the f word. It's the way I feel right now'

Well ok, apology accepted, but let's all agree that, though feelings are running high, there is simply no excuse for any poster to use the word fla*enco.

Ray Roche
26 Posted 03/05/2016 at 14:58:27
Sorry, Eugene, I can be just so insensitive some times....but I couldn't bring myself to use "disco", "garage", "hip hop fusion" or any of the other shite that appear to mirror St Vitus, I just imagined the Spanish connection might be more apt. Anyway, it might offer an opportunity for Roberto in his next employment.

(And I'm not dismissing or trivialising St Vitus in any way...)

After almost 10 years of buying 3 season tickets in the Park End I stopped last season; I wasn't putting up with watching that garbage any longer under this fucking fraud.
James Carroll
28 Posted 03/05/2016 at 15:33:41
...by the way - a fun way to make your feelings known to the club - they are currently running their Player of the Year poll on the official website...


I voted for:
1. Niasse
2. McGeady
3. Rodriguez


Colin Oakes
29 Posted 03/05/2016 at 15:41:08
James you have started something now. Just gone on and voted exactly the same!
Jim Lloyd

I got me seat last Thursday. I've got rid of my doubts about Roberto and bought on the strength of losing those doubts.

I wasn't sure that the dream he gave us could come to fruition; but now I am.

I'm sure that we need a better manager, with all (or at least most) of the attributes of a winner and can mould a team with those same attributes.

Why did I buy it? well, I got it because I think we will this season, have a board who will take the first step on the road to becoming a great club again.

Farhad Moshiri has, in my view, paid a too much cash out just to let Boys Pen Billy run this place like it was his own theatre of dreams.

In my view Roberto Martinez is taking a load of flak that BPB ought to be taking. He hired him and ought to have fired him before the Semi. Well, he hasn't; and he has let the poor man take the brunt of the wrath that should be directed at him.

Roberto believes in what his vision is and I see nothing wrong in trying to make it work. It won't by the look of it; and the feller who has the privilege of being Chairman of this club, has bottled out of telling the fans whether he is sacking him or backing him.

I don't blame Roberto Martinez, I blame the shyster who id the Chairman.

I think (hope?) that during the Summer Mr Moshiri will take over the major decision making in this club and we will see a new manager. I also think there will be major changes in the business side of things as well, with perhaps a new sponsor, a better Everton goods and improving our image in America and Asia to come.

If I'm wrong and Kenwright still rules the roost, then it wont be "Nothing will be the same" It'll be more like "Nothing again."

Joe McMahon
31 Posted 03/05/2016 at 16:01:00
James, I voted the same (ish) but chose our 47 year old non scoring Wigan striker Kone in 3rd.
Tony Draper
32 Posted 03/05/2016 at 16:33:08
If you want to tell the club how you feel then, why not tell the club how you feel ?

Surely, buggering up the "Player of the Season" vote isn't the clearest of messages, is it ?
'Cos frankly I just don't see how selecting Oumar Niasse, Aiden McGeady and Leandro Rodriguez as your "Player of the Season" gets the message over that you want Roberto Martinez replaced as manager at Everton Football Club.

So why not try busing these instead ?

Right - agree, Tony - everyone please do all that for sure (and I have done already).
But voting Niasse as player of the year is a lot of fun, too - I need all the joyful moments I can find...
Tony Draper
34 Posted 03/05/2016 at 18:51:34
Then read Eugene Ruane's comments James........ I wish to fuck he sat next to me at the match rather than the miserable arsehole with a gob from Easter Island.

Renewed virtually straightaway. I don't think Bobby brown shoes will be our manager soon.

I really believe it will be Pellegrini next season.

Everton has extended the Guarantee Your Seat deadline for 2016/17 Season Tickets by 48 hours in response to high last-minute demand which resulted in some minor delays across sales platforms.

Existing Season Ticket holders now have until midnight on Thursday 5 May to guarantee their seat online – or until 6pm on Thursday 5 May to renew over the phone or at the Goodison Box Office.

The decision to extend the Guarantee Your Seat sales period was made due to the high level of sales activity today (Tuesday) which resulted in delays for some fans both online and at the stadium.

Is this a coded message that says "Roberto is going tomorrow"?
Damian Wilde
38 Posted 04/05/2016 at 00:15:17
I renewed, mainly 'cause I have a great seat and don't want to lose it. But I won't attend again until he's gone.
