Valiants! As we near the end of this most unprecedented of seasons it’s time to look to the future and say thank you to YOU – our magnificent supporters.
Despite the fact that supporters have not been allowed inside Vale Park the vast majority of our Season Ticket holders have remained incredibly loyal and kept their money in the club.
This investment in Season Tickets has been absolutely vital for your club during a prolonged period where Port Vale has received no match day or hospitality revenue.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back and want to thank you for your incredible support over the last year.
Next month every supporter who kept their Season Ticket money in the club will receive a thank you pack containing the following:
- Our bespoke ‘loyal Valiant’ scarf
- A £10 ‘loyal Valiant’ voucher which can be redeemed in the club shop or off the price off a Season Ticket
- A ‘loyal Valiant’ thank you postcard designed by local artist Paine Proffitt and signed by PVFC Chair Carol Shanahan OBE
In addition, all Season Ticket holders who kept their money in the club will be given complimentary access to two additional games (both EFL Trophy home group matches) if they renew for the 2021/22 season.
Before the new season kicks off we will also be unveiling a new ‘loyal Valiant’ thank you banner inside the club listing the names of all Season Ticket holders who kept their money in the club this season.
In addition, all these names will be entered into a prize draw to win a VIP match day experience – including a meal with owners Carol and Kevin Shanahan.
On our ‘loyal Valiant’ Bank Holiday weekend (May 1 to 3) supporters will be able to visit the club shop and ticket office to finally collect their unused 2020/21 Season Tickets and ‘Covid seating’ Season Tickets (as many like to save them) – along with their thank you packs.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend (May 1 to 3) the club shop will also be offering 20 per cent off all merchandise, rather than the usual 10 per cent, for Season Ticket holders who kept their money in the club.
Port Vale Season Tickets for next season will be on sale from this date (May 1) and we are pleased to announce that, despite the financial challenges facing the club, prices will remain frozen for the fifth year in a row.
Port Vale co-owner and Chair Carol Shanahan OBE said: “Much has been said and written about the challenges clubs have faced this season and the future is far from certain.
“What is beyond question, however, is the incredible loyalty and commitment shown by Port Vale supporters – particularly our Season Ticket holders – who have kept their money in the club despite being unable to attend matches.
“As a club it is so important that we say thank you to them and add value because this investment has been crucial during a time when match day and hospitality revenue has disappeared.”
Because of Covid, the later launch of our Season Tickets means that there is a shorter period for supporters who wish to use a payment plan option.
However, supporters can take advantage of our three-month Super Vale Saver plan.
The Port Vale club shop (pvfc-shop.com) also sells £5, £10, £20, £30 and £40 gift vouchers which can be redeemed against the price of a Season Ticket or club merchandise and provide the ideal gift.
Junior Valiants (12 and under)
On May 1 we launch our Junior Valiants offer for any child who is 12 years and under. Next season it’s an enhanced offer that will provide the ultimate Port Vale experience with amazing offers and discounts available.
All Season Ticket holders aged 12 and under will be automatically enrolled as a Junior Valiant member and can choose between two packages: Junior Valiants and Junior Valiants Plus.
Junior Valiants is 12-month membership priced at £10 which will entitle children aged 12 and under to a Season Ticket, personalised welcome pack and 10 per cent off merchandise in the club shop. Our Junior Valiants will receive a birthday card signed by the first team, a Junior Valiant goodie bag, entry into prize draws, a fixtures chart and team photos, a special Junior Valiants matchday experience and discounts from a range of local businesses.
The Junior Valiants Plus is a 12-month membership and an enhanced version of the Junior Valiants package, priced at £25. It contains all the benefits of the Junior Valiants package but entitles the child to a 2021/22 home shirt, signed photo of their favourite player, invitation to an exclusive open training session, exclusive Junior Valiants Plus only holiday camp and exclusive invites to special behind-the-scenes events at Vale Park.
We are proud that Junior Valiants’ Season Tickets are subsidised for 2021/22 by the club’s main sponsor Synectics Solutions.
Thank you, Valiants, for your incredible support. We look forward to seeing you at Vale Park over our ‘loyal Valiant’ weekend!
