SAINTS have revealed season ticket information for the upcoming 2024/25 Premier League season.

The club have announced a 15 per cent increase in prices for the next campaign, which is dependent on where supporters sit.

Southampton are also set to adopt a fully digital ticket model with all physical season tickets to be discontinued. 

Fans directly impacted by the changes, such as the change of location of the away fans area, and the new kids zone, will be offered a priority on-sale window to move seats on June, 4 and June, 5.

All other fans will be able to buy or renew their season ticket from June, 6.

Following six years of price freezes for the majority of fans and an average 10 per cent reduction last year, there will be an average price increase of around 15 per cent for the 2024/25 season. 

This increase depends on where fans sit in the stadium and generally represents a net 5 per cent increase across the last two years. Prices remain lower than the 2016/2017 season.

The cheapest entry price point for adults to renew will be £479, with seats and standing areas in the corners of the otherwise sold-out Northam.

Anyone who is a new season ticket holder will pay £499 in these areas. The club will also continue to ensure supporters can spread the costs of payments across 10 months at no additional charge and no credit check.

The setting up of direct debits can be selected up until June, 14 to spread the season ticket cost across 10 months.  

From next season all tickets will be digital, providing a new way to enter St Mary’s. This includes season tickets, general admission and hospitality tickets.   

All physical season cards will be discontinued, and at the end of June, fans will receive a 2024/25 digital season ticket, for use on their smartphone through a new app.   

Through the new app, fans will be able to transfer tickets to friends and family with ease, totally free of charge if they are unable to attend a game.

Fans will still be able to list their ticket on the ticket exchange if they are unable to attend and the game is sold out.

A statement from Southampton adds: "The club understands this new process may raise questions and some supporters may have accessibility reasons for requiring a physical ticket.

"The club will support those fans who require further assistance and provide an alternative entry method where necessary."

Junior supporters who may not have a smartphone will be able to have their tickets stored on their registered adult’s smartphone within the new app.   

More detailed information about digital ticketing and how fans can access tickets will be provided this summer ahead of the new season.

Following fan feedback, blocks 13 to 16 in the Itchen/Chapel corner will be the new kids and family area within St Mary’s.  

Fans wanting to be in the new kids zone will need at least one under 14 in their group. A maximum of two adults to one under 14 will be allowed or one adult to two under 14, for instance.

Pricing for Under 14’s will be £75 for renewals and £100 for new season ticket holders. Pricing for adults will be £550 for renewals in this area and £400 for those over 65.

For new adult season ticket holders, it will cost £600 and £425 for over 65s in this area.      

Under 18’s can now also purchase a season ticket for £250 in the flanks allowing more choice in different parts of the ground for 14–17-year-olds, rather than just being within the previous family zone.
