RAITH Rovers discounted season ticket offer is already proving a hit with fans.

The club has reported good trade since the tickets went on sale last week.

Fans who purchase their ticket before Friday, May 10 can get 20 per cent off the full price.

This means tickets will cost just £200 for adults (£8.33 per game), £100 for secondary school pupils and senior citizens (£4.17 per game), and £25 for primary pupils (£1.04 per game).

However, last season’s offer of free season tickets for primary school children has been scrapped after being the subject of what the club described as an “unacceptable level of abuse”.

Raith chief executive Eric Drysdale said: “Season ticket sales are going well.

“They are on sale until May 10 at the reduced price so fans are encouraged to hurry to get a bargain.

“The good uptake is part of the recognition that we are giving people good value for money,

“It’s also encouraging that there is still a desire among the support to regularly attend games, so we must be doing something right.

“Hopefully what we put on the park next season can repay that loyalty.”

Once the discounted period runs out season tickets will go back to full price - namely £250 for adults, £125 for secondary school pupils and senior citizens, and £30 for primary school children.

Cup matches are excluded from the season ticket package.
