The cheapest tickets to watch SL champions St Helens this year are £23. Wigan are the same price.

Just went on the Broncos website looking for tickets to one of the early games and it appears the asking price for admission is £25!!!

Surely this can't be correct?

You're comparing St Helens' cheapest ticket against Broncos' most expensive?

It would be interesting to know how the club plan on converting potential supporters into supporters?

That gate price is a huge dis-incentive to people thinking about trying something new (if correct.) It's a large sum for a family with two teenagers to put down on the off chance they may enjoy something.(Almost as much as my season ticket.) Most Londoners fall into the never watched rugby league live category.

I hope they have a scheme of planned offers to local groups etc to try and get people through the gate for the first time.

I get the club needs £x to survive and £2 to get in isn't viable. However, there seems to be a contradiction between the pricing policy and the work we have been hearing about to try and drive the next generation of fans.

It'll be interesting to see what London Irish charge when they move into Brentford. The suspicion must be that it'll be offers all over the shop given the ground capacity and the fact they have been in Berkshire for years, meaning the all but have to generate a new support base. If so, £25 to watch us will become an even harder sell locally

How can I get a cheaper adult ticket for a Broncos game? There's only the £25 ticket available for adults.

When I last went to London 2 years ago the tickets were £15 (which included a £5 early bird discount).

Surprised there is only a single flat £25 entry. Ground entry should be cheaper (say £15) to attract new fans.

Ealing Trailfinders charge £20 (£10 concessions) with children under 16 getting in free.

Paying SL prices for second tier rugby

A load of moaning. Saracens top ticket price is £79 down to £30 for the cheapest ground pass & they're (or will be), in the RU Championship in a few months. Pay your £25 or better still buy a £125 season ticket and support the club instead of groaning.

Saracens are the champion team of the last few years in Europe with half of England's team plus other internationals where you get a seat in the stand.

Tickets at Ealing are to watch second rate rugby stood on the edge of the pitch- see the difference.

Season tickets are £149 not 125

If Broncos had grown their crowds from a few hundred per game to approaching 150k ticket sales last season, I'd expect them to do similar to Saracens

Unfortunately Broncos aren't quite there and need to attract new fans or they will probably fail at some point. A far better comparison would be what Saracens were charging when they played in front of a few hundred at Enfield FC in the 90's (plus a bit to allow for inflation.) I'd be very surprised is they were premium pricing then.
