I personally know a number of groups of people who have not renewed memberships this year as a result of penny pinching - myself included. For many, the actual ticket is only a small part of the cost - food, drinks, transport, etc. all add up. Of course these costs can be limited, but it's the fun social element that makes people actually want to attend - especially the 'casual' fans. At that point, many would prefer to watch at home or in a bar.Will it? Members have already paid for their seats months back. So when you head out you don’t need to actually spend any money
There are 1000 free tickets for kids 15 and under this weekend, which will help boost numbers a bit at least.
