I live in Bournemouth and have had two nursery age children to fund in the last five years

so despite having been a regular in League One and having done the majority of Championship and Premier League grounds already over the last ten years, my ‘loyalty’ is measured by how many games I have been able afford to go to in the 2018/19 season, which was sadly only AFC Bournemouth in the cup. I only want a fair shot at getting tickets for games now that my girls are out of nursery and I don’t have that crippling expense to worry about any more and the £50 away scheme gives me that opportunity. I haven’t had the financial luxury of being able to buy a home season ticket, given the cost of travel from Bournemouth to Norwich very fortnight to actually use it so I can understand the club’s intentions in making it viable option for fans outside of Norwich to attend. BUT it does s**t on season ticket holders and the cost of tickets should be lowered to reflect the price cap per game but, although supporters like myself who are in more financial difficulty will benefit, it also sucks being lumped in with your armchair supporters who just want to go to the Etihad and Anfield.

All I want is a fair crack at tickets for any game - West Ham, Everton, Bournemouth - and the £50 membership helps me in that respect but it’s also swung the other way where it’s punishing those who have already invested heavily. So all in all, mixed reactions.
