Early bird season ticket sales up 22.5 per cent at Derby County
The Rams saw the first period of 2014/15 Season Ticket sales conclude on Sunday with 16,300 being sold.
At the same stage a year ago - at the end of the Early Bird window for 2013/14 Season Tickets - the Rams processed 13,300 purchases.
Sam Rush, president and chief executive said: “The Derby support this season has been superb and we were extremely pleased to confirm that, at the close of the first phase, season ticket sales had increased significantly to 16,300.
“This demonstrates growth on this time last season of over 20% which is a tribute to Brandon Furse and Faye Nixon and their respective teams who have worked so hard on the campaign together with the players and coaching staff who have ensured that our fans have a club that they can get firmly behind.”
The Rams launched their Season Ticket campaign for next season at the end of January 2014 - and were greeted with positive feedback from supporters after offering a number of attractive and affordable packages throughout the iPro Stadium.
The 2014/15 Season Ticket sales period has been split into three timeframes, with the second period of sales available until 5pm on Friday 25th April 2014. Details for period three will be announced in due course.
The pricing details for the second period can now be viewed via the pricing grid on WeAreDerby.com/DNA and are subject to an increase compared to period one.
Steve McClaren’s side are handily placed in the promotion shake-up with 10 games left to play this season and currently sit third in the Sky Bet Championship.
The period one prices were confirmed as the cheapest possible way to watch Derby County in action next season and anyone that purchased before the deadline will receive 50% off their 2014/15 Season Ticket should the Rams be promoted to the Premier League.
In the event of Derby reaching the Play-off Semi-Finals this season new 2014/15 Season Ticket customers will be entitled to a priority period to purchase their seat for the home leg *.
The Rams have made a big move towards continuing to improve the matchday atmosphere next season by permanently moving away supporters into the South East Corner, allowing the entire Total Hire & Sales South Stand to be available for Derby County supporters - and sales in that particular area of the iPro Stadium have been strong.
During all periods of Season Ticket sales, the Rams are also offering NEW Season Ticket sales to all supporters for seats that are not already reserved.
