Chairman happy with Season Ticket uptake.
"We were previously selling just 6% of matchday tickets online and we hoped the print at home option would get this up to about 15% but, by the end of the season, we were exceeding 50% and this spurred us on to do the extra development and make Season Tickets available online too.
Providing the official website with some background to the online development, Robbie explained: "The uptake in online matchday tickets last season when we provided the Print at Home facility was amazing.
Colchester United chairman Robbie Cowling has told the U's media team just how delighted he is with Season Ticket sales for the forthcoming campaign and, in particular, the uptake online.
"The Annual Subscription can be bought at any time and, if it is bought midway through a season, then it continues to grant access to home games the following season until exactly a year has passed."
"As a result, I am confident we will easily meet and hopefully beat last year's sales, especially when Annual Subscriptions can be bought all year round."
"So far over 82% of sales have been online, with less than 18% buying in person from the Ticket Office or over the phone.
"What’s also interesting is that just over 20% of those that have bought online have chosen to spread their payments over the year by choosing an Annual Subscription."
"And congratulations for being so tech savvy. Be prepared for plenty more amazing new ideas that we plan introduce this season!"
