Surge In £10 Everton Ticket Sales
Monday, 30th Apr 2018 11:30
Prior to Saturday's win over Bournemouth tickets for next weekend's game at Everton were going slowly, suddenly they are picking up as Saints fans realise how important this game is.
Usually like most clubs Saints take 2,000 tickets at Goodison all located in the Lower Bullens and don't request the upper tier, a few weeks ago they decided to take the full allocation of 3,000 in anticipation that this might be a vital game for the club.
Initially this looked like folly, defeat to Chelsea and only a point at Leicester left man believing that the trip to Goodison might just be for the last rites, however after the win on Saturday against the Cherries, the belief is back amongst the fans and tickets sold for Everton literally doubled on Sunday.
Monday morning has seen a steady number of sales as suddenly the Saints supporters are waking up to the fact that we might just be able to stay up, but winning at Everton will be crucial and could take us out of the bottom three.
But if getting behind the team and turning Goodison Red is not enough incentive, the fact that adult tickets are only £10 should also help sway the decision, put bluntly it will be cheaper to watch Saints at Everton than it was to watch the victory over Bournemouth on Saturday even taking into account travel costs.
By coach it is only £23 on the official coach's run by the club with Virgin Media sponsoring travel as well as ticket prices, our friends at Southampton Away Travel also have spaces left and you can book there using the link below.
But it is cheaper still by car, the 480 mile round trip to Merseyside should be no more than around £80 in petrol even for the most petrol guzzling cars, split between four people it is only £20 each meaning that it is cheaper than going to St Mary's.
Back in 1999 Saints officially took 10,000 fans to Selhurst park to play Wimbledon with many more in the home areas, that game went down in history, it was truly one of the great away games for Saints fans of any age, Everton could be just as monumental both on and off the pitch, get your ticket now before everyone has the same idea.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
