Thanks SF. Just got my email. $155 increase on last year for my 3 tickets.
Have to see how that affects our budget but I'm 95% sure we'll renew.

Thats it
Last year it was $350 for an adult in lower peter burns
I had 2 adult memberships + 1 child - cost me $704
So the child was effectively free.

This year theyve bamged it right up
$875 for the 3 memberships
Are the club fkin retarded increasing prices when people are struggling to afford the basics.

Difficult question - the club are not a high profit business - all their costs have also gone up just like mine and yours have.
These cost increases may only keep them financially consistent. Maybe they could have kept it unchanged 'for the fans' and lost money themselves, their relevant decision makers (who have generally done well, we think) obviously felt like it needed to happen.

It's not like they are colesworth making billions and still taking prices up. Or airlines charging 3500 each Perth to Brisbane (return) on weekend of AFL final (my boss is a Carlton fan and looked at going).

Not ideal they are taking prices up, obviously, but they have to stay sustainable also.

Sorry I had the 2023 prices wrong. The adult prices were correct, but the other prices were not (the archive links were leading to 2022 prices). I'll just leave it for now.

I do think the main increase is probably in family/junior tickets though.

This is one of the biggest problems with having a low capacity stadium. With most "good" games sold out, it's easy to inflate ticket prices.

I can cop the $30 increase, but I reckon a few of my mates won't. And these are lifelong Sharks fans too. Hard to justify when you've got a young family and rising interest rates.

What's that work out to? $5-6 more per person, per game? Yeah it for sure won't suit everyone but it doesn't seem that outrageous.
Although to look at it another way, approx a 25% increase which does read worse.

But you asked if the club was 'fkin retarded' so I suggested an alternate reason they may have increased the prices.
I don't think most who are struggling to afford the basics are (or should be) buying sports team memberships anyway. Even at your old price of 704 that's a decent amount of extra food on your table if that is a problem someone is facing.

But considering we take a home game to coffs harbour + sacrifice a home game @ magic round we get less for more $$

I have a 4 yr old who can't attend Thursday night games, or the late Friday games for that matter so the increase is even less justifiable imo.

Not sure how you're determining you'll get less for more $$... we didn't have those games at home last season either.
I accounted for 10 home games so depending on next years fixtures you may well get the same for more $$

The club can't price manage around what your 4 year old can and can't do either. I expect they figure most probably can't make every game.
There is a buy back of some form now isn't there?

Cancelling in your circumstances probably entirely justified, I'm not trying to convince you that you cancelling is wrong, I'm just not sold the concept of the price going up is 'retarded'

Many will just say something like...

With the lack of incomings at the club as well, we're a mid table team at best, so hardly bang for your buck.
The club has ramped up famiy/junior seats prices.
That $170 increase on last yrs membership breaks down according to ticket prices as $30 per adult ($60) and $110 for a junior.
Cause development has taken longer than expected, and the club wants to maximise $$ from bums on seats

Surely no one expected it not to go up in price? Everything goes up in price. They'll probably ask for a tip after purchasing online too.

With the options being

As if asking for tips isn't bad enough they all want it before they deliver any product/service. Dominoes wanted me to tip the driver on checkout 🙃

0% = other. Try -25% I wonder

Given the number of sell outs and limited capacity they probably feel pretty comfortable that they’ll be able to easily backfill any cancellations.

And with the limited capacity can’t blame them for covering any earnings lossed.

Used to always tip the pizza driver as it was easier to let them keep some of the change than dig around through their wallet, pockets and car to find the $2.40 or some **** I was owed. Online payment killed that off though.
