Higher prices to shock South End Core fans

Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 19:11

by Sandro Micallef

The South End Core may be dismantled after the standard €5 price tag to watch the Malta home games in the South Stand will be increased.

The MFA’s top men have decided to increase the price of each ticket in an attempt to launch the Goal Card which will be launched this Thursday. This site can reveal that this card will cost €30 meaning that if one intends to go and support all the Malta home games in the South Stand he will have to face a €5 total increment. This decision to increase the prices in the South Stand contrasts and contradicts the idea of so so called “season ticket” concept.

A ticket to watch a game of Malta against Italy, Denmark and the Czech Rep will have a 50% increase as these tickets bought on either matchday or days before will cost €10.

The Goal Card will be valid only for qualifying games of the 2014 FIFA World Cup which will eventually be held in Brazil.

www.sportinmalta.com has information that the standard tickets per individual match for the South Stand will be as follows:

Malta v Italy – €10

Malta v Armenia – €7

Malta v Czech Rep – €10

Malta v Denmark – €10

Malta v Bulgaria – €7

Malta v Armenia – €7

 

The MFA will give details of all other prices during a Press Conference this coming Thursday.

50% increase for Italy and Czech tickets if SEC fans do not buy Goal Card

    Oppinjoni tieghi :

    Kullhadd nahseb jaqbel li 30 Euro mhux hafna biex issegwi 5 loghbiet tan- Nazzjonal inkluza ta L-Italja .
    Izda il Punt Kardinali mhux dak !, Fis South stand , jigi minn jigi, nilghabu kontra min nilghabu , il prezz dejjem kien ta 5 Euro u rajna teams bhal Grecja , Portugall Svezja , Danimarka , Turkija , etc etc. BLOCK TICKET , jew kif sejhula GOAL CARD, suppost ghandu jkun irhas milli meta tixtri it ticket loghba loghba .
    X’GARA? l-MFA gholliet il prezzijiet tal loghbiet , u mhux bil ftit, biex taghmel il GOAL CARD AKTAR ATTRAJENTI !, u dan nahseb li mhix azzjoni giusta !  , Issa gejna f’sitwazzjoni li jew thallas kollox bil quddiem ( anzi  5 euros aktar ) jew inkella ixtri bl-oghli hafna !. 
    Jekk hawn xi hadd qed jghid li qed ingerger ghax gholiet b 1 euro , sejrin zball :  Kwazi Kwazi Spiccajt nghid , AHJAR MA GEW XEJN IT TALJANI !, ghax ser nibqaw inbghatu il konsegwenzi ta prezzijiet gholjin . FTAKKRU LI APPARTI L-iTALIA , i prezzijiet gholew anki tal danimarka u rep ceka , saru 10 Euros u BULGARIA u ARMENIA saru 7 EUROS !

    why on earth is the MFA increasing the price of the malta home tickets ? The Gold card is a good initiative but still will cost eur5 more that the normal standard total price of eur25.

    The gold card is just an excuse because they know the tickets are gonna be too expensive…what are families gonna do? all buy a gold card? This is crazy and shame on the MFA

    Dear Sandro,

    Following your article above, I would have expected that the least you could have done would be to attend the Press Conference that was held today, where you would have had the opportunity to learn more about the Goal Card scheme and to ask all the questions that you would have liked to clarify the completely mistaken impression that you have given to your readers regarding the advantages of the GOAL CARD.

    Regards,

    Norman Darmanin Demajo

    Dear MFA President,

    Thanks for your comment on this article. Please be aware that I have been fully aware of the concept of the Goal Card since this has been brought forward for discussion within the MFA structures way back. Please understand that I am a journalist and not a reporter therefore I am entitled to look out for stories of general public interest whenever and on whatever the subject is. The basic fundamental right of a journalist is the freedom of expression so please refrain from trying to stop people who criticize the MFA. Also it would have been ethical from yourself should you have refrained from attacking me personally during your Press Conference earlier today. I trust you will do just the same the next time round when I am present in front of you so I can rebut your arguments legitimately like real gentlemen do.

    Regward din AAA kolla habba prezzijiet, nahseb jekk nikkomparaw ma pajjizi ohra, prezz biex tara team nazzjonali bha TALJANI mhux daqshekk Gholli.  Min jpejjep joqod ftit lura u malajr jiffranka LOL.

    This is pure BULLYING !, buy the card ( fork out the money before)  or else you have to pay high price to attend a certain match !, as far as i Know the South Stand was always €5 ! I go there because i like the atmosphere and to support my country not to watch the other teams , i cannot commit to a card due to the nature of my work.  YOU JUST SAVED ME MONEY . BYE BYE MFA ! you are just looking at the Italy Match to make money , The Itay match will come and go , there are other matches and other tournaments, ADIOS , YOU JUST LOST A LOYAL FAN !

WHAT WE ARE NOT AGREEING ON IS WHY SUCH INCREMENT ON MATCH DAY TICKETS ON THE OTHER MATCHES? ( WE ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THE iTALY MATCH CARRIES MORE WEIGHT AND A SLIGHT INCREASE IS ONLY NATURAL ) BUT AGAIN WHY THE OTHERS ??? WHY DENMARK AND CZECH REPUBLIC CARRIES A 100% INCREASE ? WHY ARMENIA AND BULGARIA CARRIES A 50% INCREASE ???
