The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

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.”
