Supporters can win £15,000

SEASON ticket holders at Hartlepool United can win £15,000 next season.

Following the success of last season's initiative, when almost 6,000 were bought for £100, the club has today launched their offer for next season.

Priced at £155 for the full campaign, an increase of £55 on this season's offer, (it works out at £6.74 per game), the club will have a prize draw for all adult holders have the chance to win up to £15,000.

The value of the draw goes up with the amount of season tickets sold - 3,000 sales means a £5,000 top prize, 4,000 sales offers £10,000 and breaking the 5,000 barrier offers £15,000.

The draw also includes a second prize of £3,000 and third prize of £2,000.

Children's tickets - at £50 - will be entered into a draw to receive a club VIP mascot package.

Pools won a Football League award for their campaign last summer, titled 'Are You Coming To Pools?' and, after such a success in lifting attendances at Victoria Park, hope for a similar response this time around.

"Last year we made football affordable again and we were delighted with the response of our fans,'' said chief executive Russ Green.

"It's a great sight to see the Vic full again. Our prices are still less than half what they were a couple of years ago, you can't even watch local non-league football at these prices, and now we are offering a big incentive to supporters.

"Our owners, IOR, have invested heavily in the club and brought success and stability. Now we are rewarding fans with the chance to win £15,000.''

Supporters have until Tuesday, July 31 to buy tickets to be entered into the draw.

Excellent price , why Darlington FC did not try something similar at the start of last season beggars belief, it puts bums on seats and they all spend....good luck Hartlepool FC a forward looking club!

Another great plan from a North East club that appreciates it's fans, and the hard financial times most of them are experiencing at the moment. Hartlepool make sure that the local support can afford to see their team and encourage the future support through only charging £50 for kids. Darlington could never be as forward thinking as this, as there current predicament shows.
