Dutch side Den Bosch introduce revolutionary pricing plan for season tickets

The flat-price season ticket will cost £22. Fans will pay extra if the team wins or draws, but a loss means no payment

DUTCH side Den Bosch’s season ticket pricing could revolutionise how fans watch football forever.

The club, who play in the second tier of football in Holland, have introduced a “pay per point” season ticket that means fans pay LESS if the team fails to win.

The base-price for a ticket for the Eerste Divisie campaign will cost £22 (€25). Then for every home win the supporters will pay an addition £8.70 (€10).

For a draw, fans will fork out an extra £4.35 (€5), while if the team loses, no money will have to be paid out at all.

What’s more, if the season tickets are bought before June 12, supporters will also be given a free home shirt.

The money for points earned will be ploughed back into the youth teams and the Den Bosch FC Foundation.

And fans won’t have to worry how much extra they will have to fork out for a mammoth winning-run. There is a cap of £140 (€160) on how much additional monies will be handed over.

Last season the Dutch outfit won eight home games and drew six.

This means under the terms of the new agreement fans would have shelled out a further £96 (€110) – still cracking value compared to second-tier teams in other countries around Europe.

In England, only six Football League clubs offered a season ticket for less than £200 for the 2016/17 season.

These were Bradford, Wigan, Charlton, Accrington, Leyton Orient and Huddersfield.

Fans around Europe will be hoping the 'pay-per-point' season ticket adopted by Den Bosch can make it to their clubs
