How will it work out for ST

Winning deal on a hat trick of tickets

PLAYERS from Plymouth's three top teams have joined forces to back a winning new ticket offer.

The Herald is supporting a crunch weekend for Plymouth Argyle, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth Raiders.

To try to get as many people through the gates as possible on February 28 and March 1, the three clubs and The Herald have come up with an "all-you-can-watch" offer.

Fans can see three sports and three matches in one weekend for just £35 – saving £13 on the usual ticket price.

The feast of sport kicks off at 7.45pm on Friday, February 28 when Plymouth Albion host Nottingham in rugby's championship.

Albion will be hoping to reinforce last month's historic away win against Nottingham.

Albion captain Rhys Oakley said it was fantastic to see Plymouth's three teams getting together to offer fans something special.

"Hopefully this will get a few new faces to matches – and we'll try our best to do a good job and keep them coming back."

The second treat is on Saturday, March 1 when the Pilgrims take on Morecambe at Home Park.

Argyle's Connor Hourihane praised the home crowds, and striker Lewis Alessandra said the team's improved performances had lifted the fans.

Kick-off is at 3pm, so sports fans will have time for a meal before heading down to the Pavilions where Plymouth University Raiders meet Cheshire Phoenix at 7.30pm.

Cheshire are currently one place below Raiders in the league table, and breathing down the Plymouth players' necks.

Raiders' Ben Eaves said there was all to play for with a lot of the British Basketball League season left to run.

New signing Chris Hines, from Alabama said he found the Plymouth home crowd electric.

Tickets are on sale now until Monday, February 24.

Not sure about ST holders but on the face of it it seems a good deal. If I wasn't so busy that W/E, I would have definitely thought of buying one, maybe two and drag wifey along. At least you'll stay dry watching 1 out of the 3. Laughing

The closer integration of Plymouth's various sporting representatives is an obviously good idea.

Let's face it each team has broadly similar requirements such as a gym and game reviewing on video and faces similar challenges when it comes to player recruitment and travel to away fixtures.

There must be synergies that can be exploited well beyond a one-off day ticket. A 3-way season ticket, one mega-gym and coach travel immediately spring to mind.

Let's hope that this is just a start to a longer term initiative that benefits all 3 teams.

I'd give it a go as a one off event. Good idea. I hope it sells well.

A gimmick that won't work. As a one off some might take up the offer, but as a regular thing ? no way. Probably would be taken up mainly by the administrations and playing staff of the clubs involved. You can bet your bottom dollar the super fans will be up for a photo opportunity.
Towns and cities all over the country have tried it with far bigger clubs involved, and have failed. There's a limit to how much time people are willing to spend passively watching sport.

Other than ground sharing that obviously has it's benefits, it just sounds like yet another Jonesesque or even superfan inspired Plymouth networking exercise and chance for Tudor to get in a few pre election column inches. Maybe they're all missing the administration contingency bonhomie and keep on desperately trying to recreate something. The whole "Plymouth" thing is just a fad with these people, and various generations of aspirers have trodden those boards to sink without trace.
Plymouth is the home of Amateur marketing. Who can forget Todd/Campbell's wonderful lorry pootling up and down Mutley Plain, tannoy blaring, crowd roaring, imploring people to get up to Home Park. Very Happy

Whilst the initiative may be good on paper it doesn't alleviate the fact that times are hard for some and becoming harder for others. The problem with not being able (or willing) to pay for one is not going to change when paying extra for three events all be it at a reduced cost.
