Highbridge-based speedway team the Somerset Rebels have launched their new Season Ticket offer and announced an Open Afternoon for fans to purchase their tickets for 2020.
The prices for a 2020 Season Ticket have been set at Adults £235 and Students £205 which will cover admission to all 15 SGB Championship Fixtures and the first round KOC fixture against Glasgow.
It excludes any play offs, subsequent cup matches, Individual meetings, BSPA shared events, but, new for 2020, it will also entitle the bearer to a weekly £1 discount on either a matchday programme or to be redeemed against a purchase at the refreshment kiosk.
Also, any Somerset Season Ticket holder will also be able to benefit from reduced admission to any Eastbourne, Poole or Swindon meeting covered by their Season Tickets policy, in an exciting new scheme launched for the 2020 season.
Promoter Debbie Hancock told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Following this year’s AGM we established a small alliance of southern based clubs – ourselves, Poole, Eastbourne and Premiership side Swindon, recognising that there are occasions when our own fans like to visit each other’s clubs and we unanimously agreed that we could extend our season ticket deals to provide for a £5 discount when attending each other clubs.”
“Between Poole, Eastbourne and ourselves there will of course be some exciting local derbies and hopefully this will encourage our own fans to travel to these meetings and create even greater atmospheres, but we stress that the offer is not just limited to such meetings. The discount will be available at any meeting covered by the staging club’s season tickets’ policy.”
“With Swindon on board too, it does mean that our fans can continue to follow the top flight speedway and I am sure that with Jason Doyle confirmed back at Blunsdon for 2020 then Rebels fans may want to avail themselves of the odd meeting or two at Swindon.”
“I would like to place on record my thanks to my fellow promoters for working with us in this scheme and we look forward to seeing fans from the alliance clubs joining us on the terraces here at the Oak Tree Arena as well as our own fans enjoying their speedway in the South.”
The club will be open for season ticket purchases on the afternoon of Wednesday 11th December with the tickets being processed whilst you wait, with the opportunity to enjoy an ‘on-the-house’ mince pie and cup of coffee. The clubhouse will be open between 1pm and 6pm.
“Hopefully many of our season ticket buyers will be able to pop in and see us for a chat and a bit of festive fare and go away with their season tickets. All they will need to do is to bring in a completed application form, which can be downloaded from the club’s website.”
Of course it is also a great way to ensure that season tickets will be ready as a Christmas present, but I would remind everyone that a passport-sized photograph of the person named on the season ticket will be required. If, though anyone is renewing theirs from the season just gone, then we do have the photograph on file and we can use that, so a new one is not required.”
For anyone unable to attend the Open session, postal applications will also be accepted. All cheques should be made payable to ‘Somerset Speedway (2011) Ltd and sent to Somerset Speedway 2011 Ltd, The Oaktree Arena, Bristol Road, Highbridge, Somerset. TA9 4HA .
Student applications must be accompanied by a copy of your student card. Applications will not be accepted unless a passport size photo is enclosed, (unless renewing from last season, in which case please ensure the form is marked thus), together with a stamped address envelope.
