Glasgow Tigers are now able to reveal match ticket prices for the 2018 season and are delighted to announce that season tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Saturday 2nd December) at 9am.
In 2018, kids under 12 go free at Glasgow Tigers! Alongside this, student prices have been reduced to £10 for those with a valid student ID card. These steps have been taken in the hope that it will encourage the next generation of speedway fans here in Glasgow and maintain the legacy of the sport for years to come.
Standard adult tickets have also been reduced to £17, with the removal of concession pricing.
Club co-owner Gerry Facenna explains: “It’s not a decision we have taken lightly. We already have a lot of over 65’s who pay for a full price ticket as they can afford it and know the club is losing money. We’re extremely grateful to our fans, they understand the situation at the club and have the club’s best interest at heart.”
Another new option for supporters this year is the chance to purchase a family ticket. A family of two adults and two kids aged between 12-17, can purchase a ticket for £44, which equates to one child going free (2x Adults £17 + 2x Child aged 12-17 £10 = £54).
As previously released, Glasgow Tigers have teamed up with ticketing company ‘Ticket Arena’ for 2018, who will facilitate the sale of online tickets and season tickets. As part of the agreement, a small booking fee will be added to both which will go to Ticket Arena, with the full-face value price going straight to the club. Peter Facenna said: “The Ticket Arena partnership is a big step in the right direction for us. They have a dedicated marketing team that will work alongside our marketing team to promote the Tigers in ways that previously wouldn’t be possible. They are a massive company and we are excited to see where it can take us.”
“It gives fans the option to secure tickets online and remove a lot of hassle and the need to queue, however the option is still there if they want to purchase them on the gate.”

As stated, season tickets for 2018 will go on sale tomorrow at 9am. They will be available here.
For the first time, these will take the form of a plastic card the same size as credit card, and will feature a unique barcode. Also as a first for the club, this season, both season ticket and advanced online purchases will have the option to add unreserved seating and/or a match programme as part of their ticket. Seated tickets will however be limited due to stand capacity.
Peter Facenna said: “We listened to feedback from last year’s season ticket holders. One of the recurring points was that they didn’t want to have to queue for their stand wristband having already purchased their ticket.”
“Fans will now have the option to have unreserved seating secured for each match. On scanning their ticket, it will alert the door staff that the ticket is a seated ticket and they will be presented with a wristband on the door.”
Peter also said: “Another bit of feedback was that season ticket holders were frustrated at having to ensure they had change with them to purchase a programme, so we’ve added this as an optional extra as well.”
Season ticket holders will no longer need to queue at the ticket desk and can have their tickets scanned on entry at the door, alongside those that purchase them online.
There are three ticket types available for the 2018 season; Adult, Student, and Kids 12-17. Each of these tickets will be valid for 14 matches this season, 10 home league matches, three League Cup and one first round KO Cup match.
