SKY BLUES chief executive Steve Waggott is targeting 11,000 fans through the turnstile which will help the club make a charge for promotion from League One.

Season ticket prices for the 2015/16 campaign have been dropped by 25 per cent to £249 with the Sky Blues wanting to make it more affordable for fans to attend every home matche.

That places them fourth in the ‘affordability’ table, with Bradford offering the cheapest season tickets at just £149.

And Waggott is hoping the recent appointment of Tony Mowbray as long term manager will entice thousands of supporters back to the Ricoh Arena.

He said: “I am pleased that, compared to other clubs in our division next season, we come out so favourably and the feedback we’ve had from supporters is fantastic.

“When I spoke to fans before the end of last season they all said they wanted the club to secure Tony Mowbray’s services as manager and also make watching their team more affordable.

“I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to deliver both of those.

“As well as the much cheaper, flat rate price for adults, we’ve also brought down the price for concessions and junior Season Tickets – as well as maintaining our free JSB Season Ticket for under-12s in the family zone.

“We’ve had a great response since Tony Mowbray signed on the dotted line and we hope to see even stronger sales over the next couple of weeks. If we can get 11,000 plus through the turnstiles each week, it will undoubtedly assist our push for promotion – and Season Ticket holders will play a big part in that.”

The club introduced a flat rate for season tickets of £249 for adults who buy in the early-bird period, which is £96 cheaper than a standard zone season ticket last season and equates to less than £11 per match.

There is no longer a premium zone as blocks 19, 20 and 21 will enjoy standard zone pricing, while the family zone is moving to blocks 23 and 24 in the East Stand.

Junior Sky Blues (JSBs) under the age of 12 are still eligible for a free season ticket in the family zone, while prices for JSBs between 12 and 16 have been reduced to £23.

Concessions season tickets have also dropped to £191 from £230 in the standard zone last season, and that equates to just over £8 per game.

Early Bird Season Tickets are now on sale and will rise to full price on July 1.
