FINN HARPS HAVE experienced a sharp rise in season ticket sales ahead of their return to the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
The club’s ‘early bird’ offer on season tickets ends today, but Harps officials have confirmed to Donegal Sport Hub that season ticket sales have already gone up by 50 per cent from 2015.
Harps booked their place back in the top flight following a dramatic play-off win over Limerick FC in November, when schoolboy BJ Banda headed himself into the history books with his now-famous winner.
Finn Park was packed to its capacity that night and with a home game against Derry City to begin the 2016 season they can expect the rafters to be reached again.
Club sources have indicated that the opening game of the season is set to be an all-ticket affair.
Finn Park’s current capacity is 3,900, but the club is exploring options to raise that number in time for the new season.
Following an inspection by the Football Association of Ireland’s Licencing department, Harps can expect to have to carry out some upgrade works to Finn Park to bring it up to Premier Division standard.
The rise in season ticket sales will come as a boost to club officials, who also aim to see significant increases in sponsorshup and fundraising over the next two months.Tags:
