Retro Prices for Fulham Game

Boro are reminding fans that tickets for most areas of the Riverside are just £10 for under-16s when the club turns back the clock on prices with an end-of-season ‘retro day’ for the final game of the 2006-07 season.

The Riverside rewind will also see prices slashed on the club’s award-winning programme, plus food and drink on the stadium concourses when Fulham are the visitors on Sunday May 13 (3pm).

While tickets for under-16s are reduced from a usual £15 to just £10 in all areas but for the West and East Upper stands, prices for bitter, lager, burgers and chips return to the prices charged in 1995 when Boro first opened the Riverside Stadium.

Bitter is just £1.80 and lager £1.90 – that’s a full £1 off both – while other prices include: wine £2.20, alcopops £2.10, burgers £1.70, cheeseburgers £1.80, chips £1.10, Coke and lemonade 90p, all hot drinks 80p.

Boro’s matchday programme Red Square – voted Programme of the Year – will be reduced from it’s usual £3 cover price to just £2. It will feature the results of a poll conducted on mfc.co.uk on the club’s greatest players since 1986.

There will also be a return for the day of ‘The Power Game’, the club’s Ayresome Park theme tune, which will be played along with modern-day favourite ‘Pigbag’.

Great Boro games of the past will be screened on the stadium televisions and fans are being encouraged to wear old replica shirts.

A dozen former stars will be in attendance and fans will be invited to take part in a pre-match quiz on the club’s history.

Boro’s Communications Manager Dave Allan said: “The original idea for the retro day came from the fans’ group, The Twe12th Man. We think it’s a great way to sign off the season and hope supporters will back it by turning out in strength wearing their replica kits of the past.”

Twe12th Man spokesman John Donovan added: “We hope all Boro fans join in with the retro day and take advantage of the generous concessions made by the club. It was a fans’ idea but credit must go to the club for their willingness to listen and deliver.

“Dig out your old tops, squeeze into them, wear them with pride and enjoy a day for the fans. Create a great atmosphere to end this season on a positive note and to look forward to the next.”

The Twe12th Man is committed to helping to improve the atmosphere at the Riverside and asks fans to contact them at www.twe12thman.co.uk with their ideas and thoughts.

Tickets for the game are available now, priced from £24 adults and from £15 for over-65s, with under-16s tickets just £10 in most areas.

Tickets can be purchased from the Riverside ticket office between 9.30am and 5pm weekdays, from MFC Retail in Captain Cook Square between 9.30am and 5pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and between 9.30am and 12 noon this Saturday (May 5).

They can also be bought 24 hours a day via the club’s official website at mfc.co.uk or by calling the tickets hotline on 0844 499 1234.

to be honest im not warming to this party atmosphere idea when we might still need a win to stay up.

Great idea if we are safe nothing to play for but i hope it doesnt go to the final game and this relaxed attitude from the fans will be transfered onto the pitch.

Maybe we can bring back the celebrated Ayresome and early Riverside atmosphere.

So what's in it for red-book holders? Watching others getting in at discount prices?

re: Retro Prices for Fulham Game

Funnily enough some of the old golden goal ticket sellers from Ayresome still sell them don't they?

Don't worry New Era - I don't really believe all that mythical everything was better in the good old days stuff. I recall people saying it to me in the 70s how it had been better a decade before etc.

What's in it for season ticket holders Joseph? - perhaps a chance to enjoy themselves a bit. And if more people go to the match that suits me fine. If the final matchday of the season is a bit different and people are talking about it beforehand that's also good by me. Hopefully we will get at least a point tomorrow and then can enjoy a last day victory over Fulham - we can turn the clock back and remember them as a lower league side. Maybe Jimmy Hill will still be chairman. Maybe not..

I agree! But it's a shame there is no "token gesture" from MFC when it comes to red-book holders renewing taking into account the limited opportunites to "enjoy themselves" a bit in previous seasons.

I was just thinking that myself.
