Season ticket sales
 
Reading Shaun Harvey's article in Saturday's programme showing how the financial model they are using is sustainable.
5834 Season tickets have been sold and 7000 shirts and in addition sponsorship generated of over 1 million.
The article also mentions the Wrexrent concourse to be extended further to include segregated facilities to in time could be where we accommodate visiting supporters to meet EFL capacity requirements.
All sounds very postitive

Only saw pictures but the quality of the renovation under the WrexRent looked decent. I know there were teething issues in terms of the bar service but hopefully that can be sorted with extra staff etc.

I have to say I was impressed with the renovation.The toilets were clean and plentiful! .Basically where there was opening fencing is now bricked toilets. With Jones's bar moved to the opposite side.
The concourse was like any big event busy! With people chatting and drinking

It's not just extra staff, they need to change how they work as it's very inefficient. The person serving you takes your order, takes payment, then get and pours your drinks. They should have people pre-pouring drinks the others just taking the money and giving them out. Likewise they should pre pour loads of drinks just before half time, ready to sell when the whistle goes.

Asked about this a couple of years back and was told they weren't allowed to even open bottles until the whistle goes.

This. For a venue with as much demand as is happening, it makes common sense to have separate people selling and then providing the drinks.

And yet at Solihull I went to the bar in the ground and got a pint 5 minutes after the game had started. I think the problem is you can't take alcohol and view the game. At Solihull steward on the bar door was stopping you from drinking outside. Probably not possible to stop people from leaving the concourse at wrexham and heading to their seats.

That sounds like bull sh1t. They aren't allowed to sell until half time.

Even so, they should still have separate people just pouring them out.

Yeah that's what I've been told. Surely the license isn't that restrictive. Beer should be pre poured and ready to sell at HT. Any waste would be offset by the increase in sales anyway a fair few times over

Had to chuckle Saturday well before kick off. When a lady walked into the bottom of the MRS carrying a pint of lager with a youngster at her side.
Seemed quite peeved when the steward had a word.Obviously not a fan of very long.


All times are WMT (Wrexham Mean Time). For non-town viewers the time now is 14.56:09.
