Mitchell: Increasing attendances always my focus
AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has been pleased with the response to the club releasing prices for season tickets for the 2013/14 campaign.
Following promotion to the Championship, for only the second time in the clubs history, the Cherries released their season ticket prices with only a modest price increase.
On Tuesday the Cherries announced that over 2,000 season tickets have already been sold, with just one third of those sales to existing season ticket holders.
The family stand block in the main stand next to the north stand has already been sold out.
Mitchell told the Daily Echo...
"Looking at the figures so far, I would like to think we would get 4,000. That number would give us a nice bit of extra revenue and boost the home support for every game.
"Season ticket sales have been encouraging and show there is a lot of interest in what we are doing. There is a lot of good football coming this way and people are taking advantage of value for money.
"Increasing attendances has always been my focus and was one way the club was going to be lifted. We can`t keep relying on the faithful and need to convert youngsters and other new supporters. The indication so far is promising and is really pleasing."
Season tickets seats are now on general sale, with renewing season ticket holders having until Friday 31st May to renew their existing seat, after which time their seat will become available for general sale.
