Forfar Athletic chairman Alastair Donald has implored the Loons faithful to repeat their “tremendous” season ticket uptake from last season to give the club a chance of competing in Scottish League One this coming campaign.

The 2013/14 season saw the Station Park fans turn out in their droves to buy season tickets, with the presence of teams like Rangers and Dunfermline a contributory factor, and Donald believes that needs to be the case again this year so that Dick Campbell’s outfit have the best opportunity on the park.

The chairman told the Dispatch: “We had a fantastic uptake last year, it really was tremendous. We know that was probably something to do with Rangers. But if we are to do anything football-wise, or have any chance of competing, it is imperative we have a similar uptake in season ticket sales.”

His comments come after it was confirmed that Forfar have frozen prices for season tickets for the forthcoming season.

Tickets in the stand will cost £200 for adults, £100 for senior citizens, £70 for under 17s and £30 for under 12s while tickets in the ground section will cost £190 for adults, £95 for senior citizens, £70 for under 17s and £30 for under 12s.

They will be available at Station Park on the following dates and times:-

Saturday June, 21, Saturday, June 28 and Saturday, July 5 – 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Monday, June 23 and Monday, June 30 – 6.30 p.m. to 7.15 p.m.

Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a voucher that will allow them to utilise the new hospitality unit lounge facility at half time of all league home fixtures for £50 on top of their season ticket.

Pies, biscuits, tea and coffee will be available and soft drinks only will be for sale behind the bar due to licensing restrictions.
