Shots Freeze Early Bird Season Ticket Prices

Aldershot Town have frozen both Early Bird season ticket prices and matchday admission for 2015-16.

The Early Bird prices, available until Friday 15 May, remain the same as 2014-15 – which were themselves significantly reduced from 2013-14 – giving supporters a great deal on enjoying an exciting new season at the Electrical Services Stadium.

To make the renewal process as easy as possible for current season ticket holders, we’ve already filled out your forms in advance, so you just have to confirm your details and make payment. New applicants can download the form at the bottom of this page.

Season tickets can be purchased from Monday 6 April, with books available for collection from the Ticket Office before kick-off as The Shots host Torquay United.

Adult seated season tickets are priced at £322, or £14 per match, giving a saving of £5 per match on turnstile admission, whilst adult terrace tickets are £299, or £13 per match, offering supporters a saving of £4 on matchday admission.

Concessionary prices are £230 for seating and £207 for terrace tickets, offering each match at just £10 and £9 respectively.

Student Saver tickets, for 16 – 18 year-olds in full-time education, are priced at just £184, or £8 per match for seating, and £161, or £7 per match, for terracing. This offers a huge saving of £7 per match on seating tickets and £6 per match on terrace tickets. Season tickets for ages 11 – 16 are £92 (seating) and £69 (terrace), a saving of £3 and £2 per match on matchday prices. For under-11s, season tickets are £69 and £46, offering the youngest Shots fans the chance to cheer their heroes for just £3 (seating) and £2 (terrace) per match.

All prices are inclusive of VAT at 20%. Prices will increase from Saturday 16 May 2015.

Matchday admission prices will remain at £19 (seating) and £17 (terrace) for adults. For concessions (over 65 and ages 16-18), seating tickets are £15 and terrace tickets £13. For under-16s, admission is £7 (seating) and £5 (terrace).

2015-16 is a vital season for The Shots, with a chance for the entire club to move forward into a bright future. Any club is only as strong as its supporters, and your support is always fantastic, home and away.

But our home must be our fortress and we need to create the sort of passionate atmosphere which roars the team to victory and got us all hooked on this unique club in the first place. We did not choose Aldershot Town, it chose us, and we need that renowned Shots spirit on the terraces as much as in the dressing room.

Together we can achieve something special. We value every fan and, whether a long-standing or first-time season ticket holder, want YOU to be part of our team for 2015-16.

Football Remembers The Bradford Fire

The Bradford City Fire Disaster – 30 years on

It started with a spark in the corner of the Main Stand at Valley Parade, catching alight some rubbish under the wooden seats of a wooden stand. Within four devastating minutes, the stand had been reduced to a burnt-out shell.

Thirty years ago on 11th May 1985, fifty-six people attended a game of football but would never return home. Of those who lost their lives, fifty-four were Bradford fans and two were supporters of visiting Lincoln City. Eleven casualties were children.

Hundreds more spectators were injured and thousands witnessed an event that many have described as ‘the worst day of their lives’. For the people of Bradford, the emotions are still raw and the memories are always there. They may be less prominent at times, more present in others, but they never go away.

Bradford Remembers…and the Football Community too

On this 30th Anniversary of the fire disaster, for the first time there is to be a national commemoration in memory of all those affected by the events of 11th May 1985.

The FA have invited hosts of all matches in the Premier League, The Football League, the Football Conference, the Women’s Super League and County FAs to observe a minutes silence across the weekend commencing 25th April. For those attending matches this weekend, we thank you for sharing this moment of remembrance with us.

The Legacy

There are two particular legacies of the disaster that show how healing and renewal can come even from the worst of circumstances.

Firstly, the disaster led to improvements in the construction and safety of football grounds that ensure, hopefully, that nothing like Bradford 1985 can happen ever again.

Secondly, the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) at the University of Bradford was established in the wake of the disaster. Known locally as ‘the Bradford Burns Unit’, it was set up by Dr David Sharpe who treated many people on that fateful day and stands as a lasting memorial to the fire disaster.

The PSBRU depends entirely on public donations for its continued survival and if you would like to donate to the Bradford Burns Unit Memorial Appeal you can do so via:

The official commemoration website at www.fire-anniversary.brad.ac.uk/donate

Text to donate: Text 70070 with the code VPFA56 followed by the amount you’d like to donate, e.g. To send £5 text ‘VPFA56 5’ to 70070

Bradford City club and fans appreciate deeply this response of the national football community to the Commemoration, which has transcended all the usual rivalries within the game.
