Tranmere Rovers senior ticket reclassification 'unacceptable'
1:57pm Monday 19th August 2013 in Letters
I HAVE followed Tranmere Rovers for more years than I care to remember.
When I turned 60 last year, I was able to attend matches as a "Senior", and pay the reduced admission price to the Kop Stand of £10.
As I have now retired, this benefit was more than welcome.
However, on checking their website the other day, I note they have now reclassified a "Senior" as being aged 65 and over.
The matches are again categorised into A, B, and C. Dependant on the popularity of the visiting team, one assumes.
Of the 23 home games this season, only three are in the cheapest C category.
While I can understand the need for prices in general to rise year to year, to do it through the back door, so to speak, like this is unacceptable in my view.
Come on Rovers, you show some loyalty to the fans that have remained loyal to you through thick and thin, mainly thin.
