Rip Off Rhinos

Rip Off Rhinos

Despite losing out in the semi-final of the Challenge Cup, slumping to third in Superleague XI, and crashing out of the play-offs at the first stage, there is a table which the Rhinos will top this season.

As reward for their loyalty to a 'failing' side, Rhinos supporters will be paying the most in Superleague to renew their season tickets for the 2007 season, by some margin.

More thoughts here...

Five of next seasons Superleague sides have already announced their season ticket prices for 2007 so we did a trawl around and looked at the cheapest full adult ticket that could be purchased for Leeds, Wigan, Bradford, Saints, and Warrington. It was a bit of an eye opener.

154

With Saints offering a renewal price for 2007, a Rhinos Early Bird ticket is 20 more expensive. With Saints nailed on favourites to secure all possible silverware this season, they still see fit to charge a reasonable price for their season tickets. As a renewing season ticket holder you will pay just 12.39 per match next season compared to an early bird of 13.92 per game as a SouthStander.

The most noticable difference is with the prices being charged for the superior facilities of the JJB Stadium in Wigan. Admittedly they have had a shocking season and it would be a cheek to increase ticket prices, however, they also came in as the cheapest when we did a similar exercise to this a couple of seasons ago. The difference now is 60 for a renewal, or 4.62 less per game, than for a SouthStand ticket. Even at full prices it is 38 per season cheaper for a Wiganer to sit down and watch his side than for a SouthStander to stand.

Adding real insult to injury is the relative cost of a Bulls season ticket. Their early bird offer is 41 cheaper than the Rhinos at 140, while once prices go up it will be 43 cheaper than a full price Rhinos season ticket. The facilities are not as good as Leeds and if it rains you'll get an absolute drenching, but a saving of 3.15 to 3.31 is not to be sniffed at.

With most people buying pairs of tickets or family tickets Rhinos supporters could be up to 120 out of pocket (pair) against the price paid by Warriors couples. Rip off Rhinos...it certainly looks that way!
