HARTLEPOOL United have announced details of their season ticket prices for the upcoming 2015-16 campaign.

The Early Bird adult season ticket is priced at £250 - a rise of £70 on last season - but club officials say the added income will be “crucial” in helping Ronnie Moore strengthen his squad.

Despite the rise, the ticket prices remain among the cheapest in Sky Bet League Two, with an adult ticket working out at just over £10 per game.

Senior citizens (60 and over) and students can snap up an Early Bird season ticket for £150 (£6.52 per game) while Under 19s are £120 if bought before the end of July (£5.22 per game).

Pools narrowly avoided dropping out of the Football League last season, finishing third bottom of League Two after pulling off the Great Escape.

“We recognise that football needs to be affordable and think that it is with the season ticket deal we have put together for 2015-16,” said chief executive Russ Green.

“We’re still up there among the cheapest season tickets in our division again because we know the importance of ensuring football at The Vic is accessible to the people of the town.

“We hope to get a good response from fans once again because the income we raise from season ticket sales will be crucial in going towards what Ronnie can do to enhance his playing squad.

“We all saw what an incredible impact the fans had for us last season, particularly in the closing months, so hopefully we can get that wonderful backing again when the new term kicks-off in August.”

A club statement added: “Our commitment to recognising the importance of the next generation of Pools supporter extends to Under 13s with season tickets in this category costing only £75 (£3.26 per game) when bought in conjunction with an adult season ticket.”

Season Tickets will go on sale from 10.30am on Tuesday, May 19 with current holders given until Tuesday 30th June to secure their existing seats.

Regular matchday admission prices will remain at the same level as 2014-15.
