Quite often our midweek games come up against a local team playing a cup or champions league game on live TV with a negative effect on our crowd.

Had the Lincoln game been scheduled for tomorrow we might have had another 300 -500 on the gate.

With regard to the scheduled midweek games, do we even have the option of switching to a Wednesday if the attractive euro game is on a Tuesday ?

As someone mentioned on the match thread gates were never this low in the Evo Stik regardless of who were on tele. I don't think we'd have got many more in were Liverpool not on TV.

Having a home game on Saturday had much more of an impact IMO, £36 to watch two conference games in 3 days is a lot of money for most people.

Twice rearranged, end of January = skint, chilly weather, footy on the TV. Tonight was never going to be a decent gate.

Even my dad a season ticket holder didn't realise it had been rearranged for this Tuesday until it was mentioned over the tannoy on Saturday.

The Club certainly need to look at ways to boost the gates which have worryingly dropped, but we the fans can all do our bit too.

Having a home game on Saturday had much more of an impact IMO, £36 to watch two conference games in 3 days is a lot of money for most people.

It was our first for a few weeks though on Sat, but that might be a rather simplistic way of looking at things I suppose. I think people generally just spend their money on the here and now regardless and as you said it's the second of two right together, in midweek.

Would people actually miss a game just because there's another match on the TV? I find that hard to believe myself.

I didn't go tonight, but that's just because I struggle to afford/justify paying to go to two home matches in four days.

What else has changed since we were getting bigger gates in the Evostik?
Realise it was done for a reason to be competitive but do the numbers add up? Fans we've lost Vs extra charges on the gate?

Not really, given that we won enough games to win leagues in those seasons.

I don't think we're been crap. We've put in one of two crap performances, but also some very good ones. It stands to reason that more people are going to watch us when we're only losing a home game or two all season, although it is a little concerning to see home games drop so low when factors like larger away support are considered.

Escaping midweek games for a second, in general the increase in away supporters is supplementing (in numbers) the free tickets we were dishing out most weekends to school kids in the Evo-Stik, people often seem to forget this, we'd often see a good hundred or more in the Clock end on freebies.

I'm not saying admission prices aren't a factor, they are, but they certainly aren't the only factor, we're not winning for fun and trouncing everybody anymore. I don't think this game was particularly well advertised either, it was hastily rearranged.

I think that is our last scheduled midweek match this season so should make for easier comparisons with Saturday and bank holiday fixtures . How many supporters did kiddy bring. It looked fewer than 200 to me

Not your die hard Chester fan no, but the floating/casual fans definitely. I know both Liverpool and United fans who also watch
Chester when they can, and they have missed games at the Deva because Liverpool or United have been on TV.

I also know blokes who normally bring their kids, but have turned up for midweekers without them, because Real Madrid are
on and the lad wants to watch Ronaldo - or Barcelona and Messi, so we really can't win in these situations

I have always thought the £18 was an increase too far - £2 up every season was barely paletable when we were winning leagues, not looking to survive.

The appetite to watch football in chester is there, we got £3,000 plus in the evostik ffs, the price structure this season just hasn't been right - Too Cheap for STHs, no cheap option on the terrace and a quite frankly bizaare treatment of our 16-21 fans.

Agree with that. Previous rises were the price of progress, but last summer's just seemed so unapologetic, announced within 24 hours of our reprieve being confirmed, and on the back of a miserable season.

Could be wrong, but I believe that we played home on a Wednesday 'cos Youngy wanted to watch opponents play on a Tuesday.

Quite often our midweek games come up against a local team playing a cup or champions league game on live TV with a negative effect on our crowd.

Had the Lincoln game been scheduled for tomorrow we might have had another 300 -500 on the gate.

With regard to the scheduled midweek games, do we even have the option of switching to a Wednesday if the attractive euro game is on a Tuesday ?


As someone mentioned on the match thread gates were never this low in the Evo Stik regardless of who were on tele. I don't think we'd have got many more in were Liverpool not on TV.

Having a home game on Saturday had much more of an impact IMO, £36 to watch two conference games in 3 days is a lot of money for most people.

It was our first for a few weeks though on Sat, but that might be a rather simplistic way of looking at things I suppose. I think people generally just spend their money on the here and now regardless and as you said it's the second of two right together, in midweek.


Admission price, nothing more

Nah, it's not just that.


What else has changed since we were getting bigger gates in the Evostik?
Realise it was done for a reason to be competitive but do the numbers add up? Fans we've lost Vs extra charges on the gate?

We used to play on Wednesdays the first 3 seasons after we reformed, not Tuesdays.


Could be wrong, but I believe that we played home on a Wednesday 'cos Youngy wanted to watch opponents play on a Tuesday.

That's right, but we did have bigger attendances on Wednesday nights, might be worth trying it again next season?
