Wigan have – potentially – frozen season ticket prices for next year.
They cost the same as they did the 2017 campaign - which covered 14 matches at the DW Stadium.
But fans won’t know whether the Warriors have 13 or 14 home matches until the season splits for the Super-8s phase.
Wigan’s ‘home’ game in Australia in February WON’T be covered by a season-ticket.
Warriors officials say they decided against rising prices because they are moving their regular-season fixture, against Hull FC in February, to Australia.
But they hope season-ticket holders won’t be worse off, and they play the same number of DW league fixtures as in 2017 when Wigan hosted 14 matches.
Of course, if Wigan again end up with just three home Super-8s games, then the ‘frozen’ price will represent an increase on a price-per-match basis.
That will depend on where they finish in the table after 23 rounds.
Under the league structure, teams finishing the regular phase in the top-four - and 9th and 10th - get four home matches in the Super-8s phase, as opposed to three home game for those in 5th to 8th, and 11th and 12th.
The cheapest adult ticket for a ‘new’ buyer - including early-bird discounts - is £230, which compares favourably to other clubs.
St Helens’ cheapest early-bird adult ticket is £276, and last season’s table-toppers Castleford charge from £230 for a standing ticket.
Relegated Leigh Centurions are charging £230 for their cheapest ‘early bird’ adult season ticket.
Huddersfield are by far the cheapest, at £125.
Auto-renewal prices offer the best value, with savings of up to six matches when compared to game-day prices.
They are £190 adults (£30 juniors) for the South Stand, £230 adults (£80 juniors) for the East Stand and £265 adults (£160 juniors) for the West Stand.
Costs increase across the board for ‘renewal’, then to ‘early bird price’ and finally full price.
For example, a new buyer could purchase a South Stand adult season ticket for £230 - as opposed to the full price of £302.
Wigan are allowing fans to pay over 10 direct debit instalments to split the cost.
And they say they responded to feedback regarding Junior Season Tickets by cutting prices in the East Stand to bring them more in line with the South Stand.
Season ticket holders will be entered into a weekly draw with prizes up for grabs, and one season ticket holder will win a trip on their Australia tour.
Sales will be available from 9am tomorrow (Friday). The seat reservation deadline for existing season ticket holders is November 24.
Wigan Warriors 2018 Season Tickets will be available from the DW Stadium Ticket Office and the Ticket Hotline – 0871 6633 552 and online at wiganwarriors.com/tickets.
