Town fans could be watching their heroes next season for just £7.90 a game.

That’s because the club is considering plans to drastically cut the price of of season cards - perhaps to as low as just £179.

It is believed the prices will be for all stands at the John Smith’s Stadium but may be restricted to the first 10,000 supporters to sign up.

The club currently have just over 9,000 season ticket holders and believe the new deal would attract thousands more.

The idea was mooted by Town chairman Dean Hoyle at a fans’ meeting to gauge the reaction of supporters.

It has been likened to the set-up at Bradford City, where attendances have soared on the back of a cut-price deal.

Town’s average attendances have fallen over the past three seasons from 15,068 in 2012/13 to 13,541 last season.

Current season tickets range in price from £295 to £560

The idea has been welcomed by many Town fans.

Steve King, of the Supporters Association, said: “It would be a great move.

“You would surely expect at least 10,000 to buy tickets at that price and hopefully many more.

“It would make us one of the lowest-priced clusb in the Football League, never mind the Championship”.

On the downatthemac website, many have hailed Mr Hoyle’s initiative.

Peter Jackson Terrier: "£179 ? Wow! That means the club loses approx £250 for each existing and committed SC holder..that’s about £2m. But, if they can get another 2,000 they gain back £0.5m.Dean has broken the mould with these prices, and the fact they are the same in any stand is perfect.

"I hope this makes the national media take notice deserves al the plaudits it can get. I can’t even moan about the loss of our seniors discount at these prices..."

Iwan Roberts Terrier: "Dean has done what all Premier League and Championship clubs should do. The increase in TV money makes it more affordable for clubs to make it cheaper for the fans. This won’t happen with most clubs as they can sell out for every game despite the extortionate prices. The prices that Toiwn are charging are comparable to season ticket prices lower down the pyramid. Bradford Park Avenue charged £180 after early bird prices."

kiaterrier: "Great news. Now reduce pay on the day for adults to £15 to get even more supporters into the ground."

Mick Buxton Terrier: "I seem to remember reading that we get an extra £4m next year, and that is going to be used to off-set the losses on the season cards.

They need to follow it up with a few billboards around town and promos at the university so that everyone around town knows about the offer. stevvy"

Herbert Chapman Terrier: "If true, brilliant. Even if it’s for the first 10k that take up the offer it’s still good if you think about it as youngsters won’t pay that, so by the time we get 10k of the £179 tickets sold it may be 12-13k that we’ve sold in total. I’ll certainly be getting one. With £200 tickets you’d basically get about 12-13 games free, so if it is £179 then it’s maybe around 14 free."
