‘Terrific job’ – Steve Bruce lauds West Brom ticketing policy

West Brom manager Steve Bruce has lauded the club’s season ticket decisions for next season.

The Baggies have frozen all adult tickets while also taking steps to ensure that the younger generation develops an interest in the club. 

For anyone 16 or under, the season tickets are priced at £23 – £1 a game. Whereas, season tickets for fans aged 17 to 19 are only £99.

“I think the club have been realistic and done well on it,” Bruce was quoted by Express and Star when asked about ticket prices.

“It’s good value for everybody. The whole scheme is sensible, and it looks inviting for supporters.

“I think the club has done a terrific job. They are not putting prices up, they are bringing back the fan zone as well and letting in kids for a quid.”

Good gesture

Considering that Wolves and Aston Villa have increased ticket prices for the next season, West Brom’s decision will come as a breath of fresh air for their fans.

Also, the decision to involve youngsters by offering better ticket prices is also a good step toward which is likely to increase the club’s following in the future.

However, apart from ticket prices, West Brom will also have to do well in the field as their supporters were left unimpressed with their performance last season.  

The Baggies were relegated from the Premier League in the 2020-21 season after finishing in 19th place.

In the last campaign, they finished in the 10th position in the league table, eight points behind sixth-placed Luton Town.

Under Bruce, who joined the club in February earlier this year after replacing Valérien Ismaël, West Brom played 26 matches across all competitions, managing to win just six, drawing seven and suffering defeats in 13.
