SAINTS have today revealed how much fans will have to pay to watch their team in the Premier League.

Adult supporters renewing their tickets will pay between £695 and £495, depending on where they sit. Anyone interested in buying a new season ticket will have to pay between £780 and £555.

Compared to last season's ticket prices, the cheapest adult tickets have gone up by 30 per cent and the most expensive by 31 per cent.

This is despite the club playing 17 per cent fewer games at home when compared to the Football League (19 as opposed to 23), meaning the price-per-game has gone up by an even larger amount percentage-wise.

The biggest increase is faced by adult supporters sitting in of Chapel as only part of the stand is now classified as the family section - they are looking at a 51 per cent price increase from £380 to £575.

Fans who wish to purchase their season ticket via the club's instalment plan will have to pay a £50 administration fee.

Fans wishing to renew must do so between June 6 and June 30. Any later, and they will be forced to pay the prices laid down for new customers.

Anyone wishing to purchase a new season ticket can do so from July 2 until July 31.

Saints have yet to reveal how much tickets will be for individual matches, but has said there will be five gold games, seven silver and seven bronze.

The club has also changed how it charges booking fees. From now on, each ticket bought either online or in person at the ticket office will incur a fee of £1.50 and those bought via the telephone will have a fee of £2.50 levied on them.

The only way to avoid the charge is to pay by cash at the ticket office.

Previously, fans had been charged £3 per transaction, rather than per ticket.

Saints are believed to have had around 14,000 season ticket holders last season.

In a poll running on the Daily Echo website, 33 per cent of Saints supporters thought a fair price would be between £400 and £499, with 27 per cent settling for between £300 and £399 and 25 per cent for between £500 and £599.

Just 15 per cent were prepared to pay over £600.
