There was good and bad news for Raith Rovers fans this morning as the club announced a review of its admission prices for the upcoming season.

General admission for adults has increased from £17 to £18 with a parent and child ticket also increased by £1 to £21.

Prices for juniors (under 16s) and over 65s have been frozen at £9 while pre-school children continue to be admitted for free.

The club has also performed a U-turn on a previous announcement by scrapping its plans to increase prices for the disabled.

Admission will now remain at the discounted £9 rate for the disabled, with a carer admitted free of charge where required, while Jobseekers also pay £9.

Any disabled person who already purchased a season ticket at full adult price will now be entitled to a partial refund.

The club has also stated that admission prices for Labrokes Championship matches featuring Hibernian and Rangers will be higher to reflect “increased stewarding and police costs” for these fixtures.

There will, however, be an opportunity to pre-purchase tickets for these matches at normal rates.

Students are the only supporters to benefit from a price drop with the cost of admission lowered from £13 to £12 next season.

Pre-season friendly prices have been set at £10 for adults and £5 for all concessions including the disabled.

Season tickets remain on sale from Stark’s Park priced at £250 for adults, £30 for juniors and £125 for seniors or disabled.

The season tickets also including the five friendly fixtures.

Rovers have also had to scrap plans to provide discounted entry to away games for season ticket holders after its attempts to create a ‘reciprocal’ discount with its fellow Championship clubs failed to materialise.
