FC Halifax Town have cut the cost of their adult season tickets to £199 for the 2016-17 campaign.

The price drop - from £319 last season - is in response to the club’s relegation to the Conference North and means it will cost Halifax fans £9.47p per game with a season ticket.

Season tickets for children aged between 12 and 17 have been reduced from £89 to £79.

Matchday admission prices for adults has also been reduced from £17 to £16 for seating and £15 for standing.

Children under 12 can go for free with any paying adult, but a children’s season ticket must be ordered before July 31.

There will also be reductions to on-the-day prices for concessions and children aged over 12.

The club have targeted season ticket sales of 1,700 and say they can be paid for up-front or with two payments of £100 by June 30 and £99 by July 31.

Season tickets will be available from the club’s online shop from June 6.

Other offers for season ticket holders include a free framed 2016-17 squad photo for those that sign up before June 30, and a chance to bring a family member or friend to a game for free to a game next season, one free drink voucher and one 20 per cent off shop voucher for club merchandise.
