FANS will have to pay more for their tickets to watch AFC Bournemouth matches this season.

The club have now confirmed the single match ticket cost for upcoming fixtures in the 2024-25 campaign.

There has been a small rise across the board for all category of supporter, across the stadium.

A statement from the club read: “In line with season tickets, updates to match ticket pricing include steps toward establishing a consistent discount for concession ticket holders of 20 per cent off adult pricing.

“While most will still see a discount of more than 20 per cent off their 2024-25 pricing, the consistent discount should be achieved by the start of the 2025-26 season. 

“Additionally, following consultation with Level Playing Field and the club’s Disabled Supporters’ Association, the club is beginning a five-year plan to align a single, consistent disabled discount price.

“The club will look to align wheelchair and ambulant disabled discounts at 40 per cent off adult pricing by the start of the 2028-29 season."

Again, games will be ranked based on category.

This system will see fans pay more than last year, as there are eight ‘category A’ fixtures, which are the most expensive, compared to seven in 2023-24. They are Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Newcastle United, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and newly-promoted Southampton.

There are just three of the cheapest ‘category C’ fixtures, namely Ipswich Town, Brentford and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The most expensive single match ticket will cost £56 for an adult sitting the centre of the Main Stand for a category A fixture. That is up from £53 last season.

The price rises and then generally consistent across match category, fan category and stadium position, with a rise of around £2 or £3 in most areas.

The club have also confirmed the on-sale dates for fixtures. More details can be found via the club’s website.
