The decision to decrease ticket prices was a good move by Dejphon Chansiri, former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern.
Per The Star, season tickets for adults have dropped by around 20% as Chansiri looks to rebuild his relationship with supporters after a difficult campaign.
Wednesday were relegated from the Championship to League One after finishing bottom in English football’s second division and had very little stability during that season.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
It is something the Wednesday owner has to take responsibility for having sacked two managers, Garry Monk and Tony Pulis, in the same term.
For Palmer, though, this latest move is a step in the right direction. He told TT:
“It’s a good move. At least it’s showing some good faith to the supporters in very difficult times because money is tight with people being furloughed and you want to get the crowds out. Obviously, it’s a fantastic gesture.”
Given how shambolic the 2020/21 season was, there is probably still a long way to go until all is forgiven.
There are also other matters that certainly need addressing, like the fiasco surrounding unpaid wages, though that does seem as if it is being sorted. But the decision regarding ticket prices should bring some positivity to supporters.
