Final few days to secure tickets at price of supporter's choice
One week from today Brentford Football Club will host its second ‘Pay What You Can’ fixture.
The Club ran the ground-breaking and charity fund-raising ‘Pay What You Can’ ticketing initiative for a match against Stevenage last season and will be running the offer again for the Sky Bet League One match against Shrewsbury Town next Saturday, October 26.
There are just days for supporters left to secure a place at the match and join the thousands of Brentford fans that have already taken advantage of the offer.
The Stevenage game was originally due to be played in December 2012 and despite a postponement more than 7,000 turned up for the rearranged match two months later.
In total, more than 10,000 tickets were sold for the fixture.
The Club also raised in excess of £3,300 for Sport Relief.
Under the ‘Pay What You Can’ initiative advance match tickets for Brentford fans are sold at the best price the supporter can pay.
The minimum price for a ticket is £1 and every ticket, whether for adult, senior, student or junior, in The Bees United Stand, The BIAS Stand and The Bill Axbey Stand is up for sale, except those already taken by Season Ticket Holders.
The offer is only valid on tickets bought before 4pm on Friday, October 25, so there are just a few days left for supporters to book their spot.
The Club also wants to raise money for charity at the same time so when more than £5 is paid for a ticket, 50 per cent of the excess, excluding VAT, will be donated to the charity Sport Relief.
Around two third of the available seats for the Brentford sections of the ground are now sold and hundreds more are being sold every day.
Those who want to buy tickets for groups of people to sit together are urged to buy immediately.
There are very few tickets left in Block D or Block B in The Bees United Stand and they are selling well in Block E.
More than 80 per cent of seats in the paddock, the lower tier of The Bees United Stand, have been sold and most of those remaining are on the ends of the stand.
Availability is also extremely limited in central areas of The Bill Axbey Stand, on the New Road side of the ground and nearly two thirds of tickets in that stand have been sold.
Tickets for the Club’s Family Area are also selling well and two thirds of tickets for the BIAS Stand terrace have been sold.
As tickets will be for reserved seats, further areas are short of seats together in the same row or block.
The Club advises supporters to buy now to avoid disappointment.
Tickets are limited to six per person.
Tickets will be available from the Club’s Ticket Office at Griffin Park, which is open from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday.
They can bought in person or ordered by telephone on 0845 3456 442 – option 4.
They are also available online here.
Supporters need to enter a special promotional code to buy ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets online – more information can be found at Pay What You Can online ticketing details.
All tickets in The Bees United Stand and The Bill Axbey Stand will be for allocated seats in order to maximise the potential attendance.
The ‘Pay What You Can’ offer is available for advance tickets only and will not be available in the away end.
If any tickets remain on the day they will be sold on the turnstiles at normal match day prices.
