AN ambitious scheme to sell season tickets for just £100 could be launched by Worcester City in a bid to attract more supporters.

City are considering the cut-price tickets to generate as much money as possible for when they leave St George’s Lane in June.

It is hoped fans would snap up the cheap passes to watch Carl Heeley’s team during the 2013/14 campaign, likely to be at Kidderminster Harriers.

Hartlepool United tried a similar approach to boost numbers last year, selling more than 5,000 tickets, and City believe they can break the four-figure barrier themselves.

A full-priced adult season ticket in the main stand at Worcester this term was £252 and fans would still have that option to show their alligeiance.

“The message is come and support the club for next season,” said director Rich Widdowson.

“Supporting the club now is going to pay dividends in the long and we need people.

“They might come to a dozen games a year but if they pay £100 and we can get enough people to do it, we will survive there (Harriers). That’s what it’s down to.

“Next season is not about how many people come, it’s about how many people support the club and that could be the crucial thing.

“My brother is a prime example. He doesn’t really watch the City but he’s been to about eight games this season and he’s brought three or four of his mates. They’ve all said if we did they’d buy a ticket but they wouldn’t come every week.”

He added: “We haven’t looked at a number yet but we’d definitely have to sell over a 1,000 to 1,500 tickets. We don’t get that at home but there’s a lot of people who support the club without coming to the game every week. Hartlepool did it a while ago and they sold about 5,500.

“They’ve got a bigger fan-base than us but it can be done and it’s down to if people want to support the club.”

City are currently enjoying some bumper crowds at the Lane, with 1,032 turning up for last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Blue Square Bet North play-off rivals Halifax.

That was the fourth time the attendance has been more than 1,000 this season and the Boxing Day clash against Gloucester City, one of three more home games this month, is expected to push 2,000.

l City have also launched the Gold Bond Weekly Draw to raise funds. Run nationally by Blackpool FC, It costs a minimum of £1 per week, 70p of which goes to the club, for seven chances to win a weekly jackpot of £2,000.
