What do you think brings in the most revenue to your club?
Season tickets must bring in the bulk of money the club expects from its fans but once the start of the season begins until they start to do the half season tickets around Christmas that`s it for them.
I think the bulk of the money has to come, throughout the season, from clothing - shirts, shorts, socks, tracksuits, training tops, scarves, hats, gloves etc. Though, I have to admit, I don`t buy a new shirt every time we have one and I have never purchased, for myself, an away shirt. But I know a lot of people who do. This has what annoyed me somewhat with the Millers over the last ten years or so. We always seem to 'run out of stock` or 'be waiting for stock to come in.` I know, in the past, there have been complaints that the club never has the larger shirts and I know someone who said they were going to 'sue them for discrimination`! Our new shirt, sponsored by 'Carlotti`, was unveiled yesterday with the promise that they will be in stock by the second week in August. I haven`t seen the away shirt but understand it`s the same as the home one but in yellow. I hope these shirts are in stock soon.
And who buys a programme every week? I used to but they started to take over every cupboard in the house so had to stop! I usually only buy one at the start of the season or 'special` ones these days and rarely buy an away programme unless it`s a ground I haven`t visited before.
I never bought food at Millmoor either, though don`t know at Don Valley if the revenue from the food outlets will go to Rotherham United or Don Valley? I have bought food at away grounds but that`s usually because I`m too lazy to make a packed lunch! (nicest I had was a hot dog at Darlington - yum! Why do football grounds never have an healthy eating option!!! - not that I`m saying I`d have it!)
Personally, I have never sponsored a game, ball or player, although Vital have. This must bring a lot of money in. I`ve seen the packages put together by the Millers for this coming season and it was very well laid out in a leaflet, I don`t think we`ve had that before. But the prices, I`m afraid, are well out of the league of the ordinary fans - which, I think, is a shame. I just hope the shirt prices haven't risen any.
