Club Breaks Long-Standing Season Ticket Holder Record
Kilmarnock Football Club are extremely proud to reveal that a 30-year Season Ticket record has been broken by supporters this week!
In another incredible display of loyalty from fans, last year’s milestone of 5,022 Season Ticket holders has now been surpassed – subsequently smashing a sales record which dates back to the early 90s.
Continuing to present positive signs for continued growth in the future, rising Season Ticket figures show a substantial uptake of youth pathway options, with Under-21s growing by 10% to cement a place as the club’s second largest supporter demographic.
Aptly, last season’s sales record was exceeded when The Killie Trust secured a section of Moffat Stand seating to support the ‘Growing the Club’s Future’ initiative, which is preserving school supporters’ groups in the local area. Over the past two seasons, The Trust’s investment in this project has enabled many youngsters to attend Rugby Park regularly for the very first time. This year, backing of the initiative has been strengthened to nurture the next generation of young fans at the following Ayrshire schools:
- Kilmarnock Academy
- St Joseph’s Academy
- Loudoun Academy
- Greenwood Academy
- Robert Burns Academy
The 2023/24 Season Ticket sales total currently stands at 5,112 ahead of this weekend’s home clash against Ross County. Season passes remain on sale from the Killie Ticket Office, and are also available online – HERE.
Commenting on surpassing a three-decade high figure, Phyllis McLeish, Managing Director of Kilmarnock Football Club, said: “The Board is exceptionally grateful for the unrivalled passion and loyalty that supporters have displayed throughout a transformational period for the club.
“We’re acutely aware that times are tough for many individuals across the region. Recording Season Ticket highs stretching back more than 30 years, plus record-breaking kit launch sales in the same Summer, demonstrates our community’s devotion to progress their local team. This level of support continues to fuel our vision of pushing boundaries as the strongest provincial club in Scotland.”
“From the Board and players to staff and supporters, we’re all determined to continue breaking records together.”
Charlie Adams, Club Youth Ambassador, added: “Alongside strengthening an expanding contingency of young supporters’ groups across Ayrshire schools, The Killie Trust’s investment has helped to bond a greater sense of community and create memories that will last a lifetime.
“As a direct result of the ‘Growing the Club’s Future’ initiative, it has been wonderful to witness the evolution of many young supporters who have developed into passionate Killie fans since being handed the opportunity to experience their first matchday at Rugby Park.”
