Wednesday manager Dave Jones has heaped praise on the Owls’ fanbase as the club edge towards 1,000 new Season Tickets holders for the new campaign.
As the second deadline approaches for 2013/14, a significant number of fans who have already committed to Season Tickets are on board for the first time and the Owls boss is delighted by those figures.
As Jones plans for the season ahead, news of strong Season Ticket sales is a welcomed sign for the Wednesday manager.
Jones said: “I’ve got nothing but admiration for the supporters here.
“In the first game of the season back in the Championship, 7,000 away fans travelled to Derby and they really set the standard that day.
“Then you look at other games throughout the season. To take 3,000 fans on a Tuesday night down to Millwall was magnificent.
“So often I have conversations with my opposite number in the dugout and opposing coaching staff after the game about our support and they can’t believe the levels we get week in, week out.
“I would honestly be so proud if we sold more Season Tickets than we sold last year because I think that shows the fans think there is progress and maybe they think something is happening here.
“The fans have been through a lot of ups and downs and to keep coming in their droves is fantastic. They should be very proud of themselves because I certainly am.”
Supporters are reminded that the second deadline to renew an existing Season Ticket or secure a new seat is 5.00pm on Saturday 8 June.
Following this deadline, all unclaimed seats will be made available for general sale and discounted prices will no longer apply.
