BURNLEY will put season tickets back on sale this morning – with a rise in price of up to 50 per cent for those who missed the early bird deadline.
The Clarets initially froze prices when they put season tickets on sale in late February, when it remained uncertain which division they would be playing during the 2014/15 campaign.
Between 12,500 and 13,000 supporters are understood to have already snapped up season tickets prior to the expiry of the early bird deadline on March 31.
Season tickets in the Bob Lord Stand and the centre of the James Hargreaves Stand upper tier now cost £685 – up from £455 for renewals before the early bird deadline and £485 for new season ticket holders.
The cheapest adult tickets are in the Jimmy McIlroy lower tier, available at £499 – up from £329 before the deadline.
Prices, however, include a £100 retainer – redeemable against a season ticket for the 2015/16 season.
Senior citizen prices range from between £460 and £385, while under 22 tickets cost between £460 and £225.
Under 18 prices are between £329 and £220, while under 12 tickets in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand upper tier cost £210.
The club are making two direct debit options available via Zebra Finance, for either three or six months.
The Clarets have also announced that they will move the players’ tunnel at Turf Moor next season after deciding against opening a section of the David Fishwick Stand to home supporters.
During the Clarets’ previous season in the Premier League the club divided the David Fishwick Stand between home and away fans, but they have opted to keep it exclusively for visiting supporters next season.
In a statement, the club said of the decision: “After much debate, this stand will now be used exclusively for visiting supporters next season.
“The board scrutinised the numbers and feel this would dissipate the home support.”
As a result, the club have decided to relocate the tunnel from the centre of the David Fishwick Stand to the corner of the stadium, between the away end and the James Hargreaves Stand meaning the teams now emerge in front of home supporters.
The club are also extending the press area to meet Premier League regulations and have offered alternative seating to season ticket holders in the three rows in front of the current media facility.
