Now....

We've debated the price of watching Wednesday to the end of the earth, and how the price of football is too high.

There's no excuse for it to cost that much at that level.

Are ticket prices not set by the league?? Know they are at Stocksbridge Park Steels level.

I've been to King's Lynn several times, albeit not for football.

It doesn't exactly strike me as being a hotbed for sport! That said, their speedway crowds were, until more recently, pretty decent. Think the stock cars used to pull in a fair number too, although I'm only going from what I've previously read elsewhere.

Norwich is, obviously, their nearest 'big' team. Not sure if the likes of Ely, Wisbech or Downham Market have teams who could 'steal' KL's crowds, or indeed provide regular derby matches?

Agree though, those prices are far too high for NL level.

I’m confused, I thought we had the highest ticket prices this side of MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1, aka Icarus, the furthest star from our planet?

Now you’re saying other clubs charge extortionate prices pro-rate???!!!

Nah....I’m with the zookeepers grandson, we’re a set of high charging bastards!

Kings Lynn are in the Conference next season and they had the highest prices in the North League this season with season tickets at £290.

As a comparison Notts County last year were £270 adult season ticket and I believe its staying the same next season.

However their on the day prices were £20-22 depending on the opposition.

'Watch championship football at conference football prices'

Should be the slogan used by chansiri for phase 2 of season ticket sales😄
