Sheffield Wednesday launch incredible 10-YEAR Prem season ticket costing up to £6,400 – but you get 15 years of football – The Sun

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY have launched a ten-year season ticket that sees fans pay for ten seasons of football and get to see a minimum of FIFTEEN for the money.

The Owls have launched the new scheme ahead of the 2020/21 season but the 'bargain' will cost up to £6,400 up front.

The ticket is called the Ten-Year-Ticket as fans would pay for the equivalent of ten season tickets at once with prices set at the current "early bird rates".

But for that money, the club has promised supporters a minimum of 15 seasons of football and that could be even more depending on promotion to the Premier League.

If the club are promoted to the Premier League between now and the 2024/25 season, fans will get the minimum 15 season for their money.

But for each year past that season the Yorkshire club fail to go up, the supporter gets an additional bonus campaign.

So in theory, if a fan signs up to the scheme and Wednesday don't get promoted for the next 70 years – and the fans survives that long – the supporter will have paid just £6,400 for 70 years worth of season tickets.

Ticket prices range from £4,550 in the Kop stand up to £6,400 in the South Stand.

A mid-range option is available in the North or Grandstand for £5,550.

In a club statement, the Yorkshire side said: "Incredible savings are on offer, with every supporter signing up freezing their Season Ticket price at 2020/21 Early Bird rate for a full ten years.

"But that's not all! Whilst Wednesday are outside the top flight, the ten years will not commence until the club reaches the Premier League, be that at the climax of this or any future campaign.

"So, if the Owls are promoted in 12 years' time for example, Ten-Year Season Ticket holders will have accumulated 12 seasons before the ten-year package has even commenced."

There are only a limited amount of Ten-Year-Tickets available but they are all expected to be snapped up by lifelong supporters.

The Owls admit they are prepared for a loss of revenue if it takes them years to win promotion.

And the club confirmed if new owners takeover, the tickets would still be valid.

Fans can also sell the tickets back to the club on a single season basis at Wednesday's discretion and – while they are in the Championship – will be reimbursed one tenth of the overall price paid for each season sold back.

Garry Monk's side are currently sixth in the Championship – ten points of the automatic promotion spots.
