charging £9 for a pre-season friendly is excessive, as is the price for the refreshments. Nice new stadium, but won’t be going back there again.

Decent new ground, friendly and welcoming people but the £9 entrance was ridiculous for the standard of the game. This wont encourage people to use these nice facilities.

£9 is not excessive for a friendly against a top league side, oh hold on it was leamington, yep got to pay your bills i suppose, big mistake evesham,big mistake.

It is likely to lose you some visitors from Stourbridge on Saturday as well, now that we know we’ll be expected to pay through the nose for a glorified kick-about.

Very unhappy away fan – you can’t charge normal match day prices for a friendly. 2 of us came and spent £18 to get in. We purchased nothing else. You received £18.

Now, if you’d have charged £5 to get in, which we expected to pay, you’d have also got 4 pints of beer @ £12 and two suppers, say £8, which would have given you a total of £30

We spent £18 instead of £30. There were 4 other away fans we were stood with who also spent no money in the ground. You probably lost around £100 or more.

How stupid are you???

Rest assured we have already informed the other teams you have coming that it is £9 to get in. I wouldn’t imagine many Gloucester or Worcester fans will make the trip at that price.

£9 for a pre season friendly. Oh well you had £18 of 2 of us instead of £30. Great economics. £5 is ample. We only charged £7 for FCUM last Saturday.
