Following extensive consultation with supporters, Millwall Football Club can reveal details of a new approach to the rise in its senior ticket category age range.
Earlier this year it was announced that the senior concession rate would rise from 60+ to 61+, the start of a staged increase to occur during the course of several coming seasons, to bring the club in line with the national retirement age.
Having spoken to fans following that announcement, however, a thorough review was undertaken and the senior age range will be as follows between now and season 2026/27, when it will reach 65:
2018/19 - 61+
2019/20 - 61+
2020/21 - 62+
2021/22 - 62+
2022/23 - 63+
2023/24 - 63+
2024/25 - 64+
2025/26 - 64+
2026/27 - 65+
Millwall chief executive Steve Kavanagh said: “I have personally consulted with a number of people impacted by the change for this coming season. I have listened to their concerns that it was unfair as they would personally be losing out for five years. It was never the club’s intention that those affected in the first year would be so throughout the entire transitional phase and we are pleased to confirm this will not now be the case.
“After those discussions it was decided to conduct a review, following which we are now implementing a new transitional increase phase which we hope is reasonable to supporters and also helps the club get on a level playing field with the opposition it is competing with.”
When purchasing concession season tickets and match tickets, your age is calculated on 1st August of each year.
