POMPEY season tickets are pencilled in to go on-sale this coming Monday.
And chief executive Mark Catlin has pledged the club ‘won’t be deviating too much’ from this term’s prices.
At present I cannot say the prices, but if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix itMark Catlin
The Blues currently have 11,047 season-tickets holders, although the realistic fear is that will drop for 2015-16.
Another disappointing campaign has spread apathy among a number of supporters, with manager Andy Awford already having paid the price for failing to challenge for the play-offs.
In turn, the prospect of a third season at the very least in League Two is expected to hit attendances.
Pompey’s new managerial appointment will certainly be a key in reinvigorating interest.
Fans await with interest how the club will address season-ticket prices, while Catlin is presently remaining tight-lipped over full details.
‘Season tickets are due to go on sale on Monday, provisionally that is the date,’ said Catlin.
‘At the moment we are getting all the on-line systems checked and double-checked.
‘It’s around the same date as last year, the timing has absolutely nothing to do with the manager change.
‘At present I cannot say the prices, but if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.
‘We were a little short of 11,000 season-ticket holders last year and a little more than 11,000 this year.
‘So that is a formula which works and we won’t be deviating too much from that following consultation with all our different supporter groups.’
In League One in 2012-13, Pompey had 8,080 season-ticket holders.
The following season, buoyed by new ownership, the first League Two campaign attracted a rise to 10,660.
Optimism again reigned ahead of this season, with 11,047 taking up season tickets last summer.
