With the kick-off of the new Aviva Premiership season a little over a month away, the Falcons are pleased to announce a new ‘Try before you buy’ scheme for fans buying tickets for the pre season friendly against Connacht on August 24 and the first league match against Bath on September 6.

Try before you buy means any supporter who attends either match and enjoy getting closer to the high-octane action can use their ticket stub to redeem the cost of their ticket against one season ticket in the same category.

Falcons commercial director Duncan Edward said: “Season ticket sales have been very strong this summer and we want to have as many people as possible to secure the spot for all of our 2013/2014 home games and be part of the Falcons family; before, during and after the match in a fun, safe, social and family friendly atmosphere.

> “We believe that this coming season will offer one of the most
> exciting and entertaining stories in sport and we’re confident that if
> people come along to these opening games, they’ll be keen to come back
> for more, so we want to make it as easy as possible for them to do
> that.”

Under the scheme, fans who wish to take advantage of Try before you buy MUST retain their ticket stub from the match and return it to the Falcons’ Ticket Office to redeem the value of the ticket against a season ticket of the same, like-for-like category.

As an example, a supporter who purchasers an adult North Stand match ticket for the Bath game can then purchase a season ticket for that area of the ground for £185 (£200 less the £15 match ticket value) while someone purchasing a Category C seated match ticket for £25 can top up to a season ticket for £275, rather than the usual £300. As with anyone buying a Falcons season ticket, those taking advantage of the Try before you buy scheme can, if they wish use the Falcons Direct Debit scheme to spread the costs over a six month period.

Season Tickets start from £200 for adult standing and £300 for adult seating and guarantee the holder entry to 11 Aviva Premiership Rugby regular season matches, three Amlin Challenge Cup pool fixtures and two LV= Cup group matches.

Season tickets offer a host of additional benefits including access to an exclusive ballot for the right to purchase England Autumn Test and Six Nations tickets, a scrum voucher enabling eight guests to attend a Falcons match of your choice at a discounted rate, and an exciting range of offers from regional companies to be announced throughout August.

Season Ticket holders also have access to an exclusive match day bar area with reduced price drinks and pre-match visits from Falcons’ players and coaches.
