TIGERS’ UNIQUE MOVE IS FOR FANS
HULL City this week announced the unique move of axing season tickets in a favour of a new membership scheme from next season in a move, it insists, will help save supporters money.
Tigers followers will be offered three different tiers of ‘Earn Your Stripes’ membership, which it believes will save supporters up to £282.
Memberships will be priced between £21 per month and £51 per month with rolling direct debits set up. Should the club remain in the Championship next term tickets will start from £11, or £13 should they be promoted back to the Premier League.
Vice-chairman Ehab Allam said: “For too long, the price of football in this country has been much too high. This new scheme will at least ensure the same cannot be said of Hull.
“The membership scheme is about rewarding the supporters for their fundamental part in this remarkable story and ensuring that, wherever the team start their new campaign, the club and the fans will be doing it together.”
On the pitch, 31-year-old central defender Curtis Davies has agreed a twoyear contract extension with the club.
Hull boss Steve Bruce told The FLP: “He’s been in negotiations for a long time and we’re delighted to have him for a couple more years.”
