This is quite frankly, the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in modern day football.

Peterborough United are offering fans the chance to purchase a season ticket for the club for £15000. Yes, that much.

Now, is this a bit of fun, or just insane? Do they really expect a loyal football fan, in the middle of a major recession, to fork out that much money, for a season ticket? I mean okay, you'd become an honorary director, but for goodness sake, this is just so idiotic. To me anyway. It may be seen as a way of getting additional income for the club, but this is way too extreme.

The club is also offering 75-year season tickets for a one-off payment of £12,000.
Just lol. The lengths that they are willing to go to is ridiculous.

LOL......If they even sell one of those tickets, I will become a Sunderland fan
I'll be surprised if anyone phones to see if there's any left.

And if someone does, I shall purchase you a Sunderland shirt myself (6)

More lunacy from Barry Fry and Darragh McAnthony.

Tbh, we do offer pretty good entertainment, average of roughly 4.2 goals per home game this season.

As Barry always says; 'never a dull moment at Posh!'

Still 15k? Andy is the only member on the forum who could afford to do that constantly.

If they keep putting out these sort of ideas, they risk making Posh a laughing stock. Fans must be despairing when they hear this sort of stuff

Good point. That golden crust, the steam pouring out when you bit into the filling....the cost is instantly forgotten when you take a mouthful of the Pukka......

Funny as....for 15k, I expect Gordon Ramsey to personally cook my meal

12k for 75 years is good tho, that averages about £160 a year........ thinking about it you must be one seriously rich 5 year old......I mean you will be 80 by then..*****

well put like that £160 per year is pretty good I guess. Like you said, gotta be dam well off to afford it like. But I suppose if you're in charge of a successful business, it could be beneficial I guess.
