Imo while the iron is hot and everyone is buzzing I hope the club have sorted out prices and plan to get these selling asap. People of Oxford are buzzing and I hope we capitalise
 
According to this: https://www.statista.com/statistics...s-cheapest-season-tickets-uk-soccer-football/

The cheapest season ticket in the Championship last season was QPR at £240 with Middlesbrough being the most expensive at £590 (based on an adult season ticket).

We're currently the 6th cheapest in League 1 at £329, based on this: https://www.statista.com/statistics...24, the cheapest,Town cost 475 British pounds.

Shrewsbury were most expensive (£475) and Fleetwood cheapest.

I'm actually a little bit surprised there's so little difference between Lg1 and Champ. Based on the season just gone, we would've been 7th cheapest in the Championship.
 
Are we thinking ST’s being 10% more?
How many will the club sell b4 cutting sales off I paid £420 last year and I'm expecting to pay at least £500 this year. Are the club going to have a system in place for all ticket games away this season now we are a championship side also be interesting to see what pay on the day tickets are but will the club introduce a new membership system now the money to be made in the championship will be crazy. Need to get the new shirts ect on sale at the earliest opportunity as everyone will be waiting for this new level looking forward and cannot wait COYY.
 
I think there will be an unprecedented demand for season tickets. The product on the pitch and the quality of opposition has gone up a significant notch. The place is screaming out for a temporary stand to be put in place to maximise revenue and have 15k fans every game. Personally if it happened I wouldn't be sticking the away fans in it either. They can have the quiet corner away from sucking the ball into the net.

I believe that there were 5,500 STs sold last season?
I think that there could be 8k+ for next season?
 
I would think there will be a more recognisable shirt sponsor. Goodbye Bangkok Glass and thank you

Easily 8k I think but that must be near the max allowed for the capacity of the ground. I don't know if EFL has rules regarding the % of season tickets v capacity that can be sold.
Success brings demand. Supply to the demand may be tricky. Regular fans or even some old/new fans who don't have ST need to be accommodated as well as away supporters. 8k+ doesn't leave much wiggle room to play with and keep everyone happy. Could there even be the totally unthinkable scenario which sees a waiting list for season tickets created?
 
Retail and merchandise will need to up their game as well now.

All commercial activities will be paramount to keep as much revenue as possible flowing into the club.
 
There is very little chance of the hospitality side of things improving, logistically and economically the Kassstad set up just wouldn't cope. However, the outlets on the concourses should and realistically, must up their game. @Farrscatering must now consider their position and react to what will be increased trade. The queues at half time are just not acceptable. There has to be a better way. What the outlets offer in terms of food and drink must improve. Likewise, the queue for the units outside the ground is not sustainable. Would it be possible to bring in more units? Certainly I would relocate the hog roast unit from the corner of the South stand to a more prominent position, why not have them both at the fence end, directly visible to all arriving in the car park? I have no experience of the East stand catering but I would imagine it is not dissimilar.
Having seen how other grounds cope and diversify (Lincoln as one example) it must make commercial sense to fully capitalise on the numbers attending.
