NEW CAMPAIGN FOR THE SOCIOS

05 Jul 2014
Heavy criticism on Tino Fernández for the prices to attend to the Riazor ahead of the season 2014/15. The major part of the socios will have to pay more. The club expects to surpass the mark of 25,000 socios.

On Friday president Tino Fernández presented the new campaign for the socios. The slogan of the campaign is “to give a lot and ask for little” The target is to at least reach 25,000 socios, though the club is ambitious and talks of reaching the mark of 30,000 socios.

President Tino Fernández promised during his campaign that the socios weren’t going to pay more money of what they paid last season, this despite the team could end promoted to Primera as it happened in the end. However the complexity of the previous rates is causing several scenarios that aren’t favourable to all the socios.

The big difference is that the club eliminated the U-30 category, which meant a special price for the people below the 30’s. Now it only exits the U-25 category, everybody under that age has a discount of 40% no matter the section in the stadium they choose. There’s also a 20% discount for the people above the 65’s, a 60% discount for kids below the 14’s and a 20% discount for unemployed socios. Finally, there are discounts in case an old socio brings new subscribers.

The season prices to attend to the Riazor are between €144 & €590, which are the same of the previous campaign. The problem is that the discounts were bigger on last season, so big part of the past socios will have to pay more despite the prices are the same. The club also informed that it will be possible to make online renewals, but starting on July 10.

Depor will also have three “days of the club”. The dates are the games against RC Celta, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. It means that it will be necessary to pay to attend to the stadium on these days, however if the socios renew or pay their new subscriptions before August 10 then they can go to the games without any extra payment.

The new rates caused protests among the socios, some of them will even have to pay the double in order to attend to the Riazor, though the major part of them will have to face an increase between €20 & €50. It’s seems hard the club will reach the mark of 25,000 socios on the new season, especially taking in mind the numbers of previous campaigns:
