"Sales have been good, they are already up on last year, which is brilliant," he said.

"I don't hide the fact that the prices have increased, because we are running this business as an entertainment venue, and some of that has to be paid for.

"But we need to make sure that, while prices increase, we're still giving extremely good value for money.

"The season ticket package has changed from last year, there's new incentives in there, and the associations with the 'Believe' fans fund.

"We've had recognition with a few awards over the summer that this club has gone a long way towards reconnecting with its fanbase.

"And that wasn't only within our own industry, we should be very proud we beat the likes of Aston Martin and Pepsi Cola and Heineken who are massive names in their own industries."

The new owners’ commitment towards raising the standards on and off the pitch has also been shown with the complete renovation of the boardroom – the new ‘Chairman’s Club’ – which they showed off to sponsors and partners at last week’s fixture release breakfast at the DW.
