£10 SPEEDWAY & KIDS GO FREE!

In association with our sponsors we are proud to announce that the next match at Shielfield Park Stadium vs Edinburgh Monarchs Speedway on Saturday the 15th of June will be £10 entry for both adults and concessions and kids will attend free!

We hope to entice new and old fans to come along and enjoy the Saturday night Shielfield Park experience and we want you to help us spread the word.

We will also be continuing our offer of a free drink with every programme purchase.

Fathers Day falls on Sunday the 16th of June so this is a great opportunity to treat those Dads out there that deserve a night out and a drink!

Please feel free to Like, Share, Comment and spread the word on this fantastic promotion.

Let’s hope this reduced admission provides increased crowds and the club make more money with more supporters paying less to watch than less supporters paying more to watch

Also hopefully the racing is good which would give any new supporters an incentive to come back 

I’ve always thought £17 is too expensive  and puts off people coming hopefully a bumper crowd will show the promotion that this is a fact

Hope they get a big crowd...

Maybe charge Edinburgh fans a fiver, or even free? to try and get a few there to add a bit of spice and atmosphere.

And get some emails and mobile numbers off those home fans who attend to target them with offers in the future...

It's a big jump from a tenner to seventeen quid and expect all to return the week later...

Maybe do some further reduced tickets to those enticed in to get them back into the habit of attending Speedway..

Hope it generates some good short and long term returns..

The mistake so many often make is they have no follow up to nights like this and just think all will return again and pay full price the week later..

Be great to see if Berwick can use it a launch pad to further innovative plans to keep punters coming in..

Great to see some 'promotion'....

One thing that certainly can’t be faulted at all up here is the promotion being done! They deserve huge crowds and all the success going for what they are trying to achieve! 

Hopefully another win and nowt to be taken away by the Monarchs. A great start to my honeymoon it would be :lol: :approve:

Good concept, I can see how you would try and attract more visiting fans to come, but how would you police it? Basically everybody is going to claim to be an Edinburgh fan and get in for nothing. Give their promotion a limited number of vouchers to hand out at one of their home meetings?

Any fan (supporter) who comes to the Edinburgh match brings their ticket the following week and gets in at discounted price maybe £14 or £15

Hope you manage to get more than the 1.5 + usual crowd to make numbers  justify it.

Good idea. All promoters should try something like this if at all possible. Nothing at  all at Newcastle. Never seems to get promoted properly.

Spot on..

Only give out their tickets at Edinburgh...

No e tickets, no postage etc..

And do it when Berwick are not there!;)

Maybe to ST holders first up to reward their loyalty and then if any left to anyone who wants one..

The sport desperately needs rivalries to create that much needed atmosphere which it is so devoid of at so many tracks..

So time to create it..

Its amazing how a great meeting lives no time in the memory when played out in front of one man and his dog..

And vice versa. You seldom come away from Cardiff thinking 'that wasn't good' because you were surrounded by lots of people and the atmosphere is great, even if the racing isn't for example, a patch on the NSS..

A chance for Berwick to showcase themselves and hopefully it forms part of  a longer term much more detailed marketing plan on the back of it, as it won't mean everyone just turns up again at the next meeting.

As has been proved several times around the country when other clubs have done this and crowds just drop back to normal after the special offer...

It should be the starting point of a longer term marketing plan, not the only marketing plan..

Best of luck to them..

Good idea...

Another possibility is give out tickets on a sliding scale..

Maybe a couple of £12 vouchers for the next two matches, and then a couple of £14 ones for the next two after, and then charge full price after that..

After five discounted visits maybe the 'Speedway habit' has kicked in and it won't seem a huge jump from £14 to full price...

(Or mayne one of the three discounted prices is the successful one in delivering the required volume to profit figure so the old full price isn't needed?)
