Over 27,500 fans have already signed up for 2016-17 with a week to go until the early bird window closes.
Though Everton have claimed a significant uplift in sales in the past week since Roberto Martinez was dismissed as manager and the Blues beat Norwich 3-0 on the final day to end 2015-16 on a high, they say that the record sales are not a result of the Catalan's departure.
Sales were apparently already on pace to break records before Martinez was sacked a week ago.
The club say they are expecting sales of 2016/17 Season Tickets to eventually exceed those achieved last season by a considerable margin.
Sales include over 3,500 new Season Ticket holders wanting to take advantage of the new pricing structure for the forthcoming campaign, which includes price reductions across the stadium and the introduction of new age bands.
Adult seats for 2016/17 are now available from only £420, a move that represents a ‘free game' when compared to 2015/16 prices — and means on average across the stadium, a Season Ticket bought during the Early Bird window for the 2016/17 season is cheaper than a decade ago.
Season Tickets for young Evertonians in Junior and Infants schools and aged 11 and under remain at £95 — just £5 per game — and are available in any stand.
The Club has also lifted the upper age limit for young Blues from 16 to 18-years-old and prices for those young fans are currently £149 throughout the stadium, less than £8 per game and a £50 price reduction for this age group in all stands with the exception of the Family Enclosure, where the price has been frozen at £149.
Fans aged between 18 and 22, at university or college, on apprenticeships or in their first jobs, or trying to find work can buy a ‘Young Adult' Season Ticket fixed at £299 across all stands, replacing this season's price of up to £382, and costing our young adult fans less than £16 per game.
Since the Early Bird window opened in March, the Club has sold over 6,500 Season Tickets to under-22s, which is 1,000 more than this time last year and means that 1 in 4 Season Ticket seats will be occupied by a young person during 2016/17.
Prices are also reduced in the Senior category with a Season Ticket in any stand at Goodison Park reduced to £299, representing a saving of between £29 and £83 for more than the 3,000 fans in this age group.
The Early Bird window for Season Ticket sales will remain open until midnight on Wednesday, 25 May.

I didn't have a season ticket this year but the cost of individual tickets for individual games is significantly higher if you attend all of the matches - in fact a complete fixture list could cost circa £700 when a season ticket could cost circa £550 or less for a decent seat. From a financial perspective it's a no brainer and the peace of mind of knowing whoever Everton play at Goodison Park you will have a reserved seat is also a factor.
Evertonians support the team and not the manager and that's another major reason for those high sales figures.

Makes a bit of a mockery of all of the angry threats on here to scrap season tickets.

I think sales would take off if we had a new ground as has happened with West Ham. Apparently, they've sold around 54,000, so far.
10 Posted 19/05/2016 at 11:03:07
I haven't renewed and if you were at the game on Sunday you would have seen the almost constant advert on the big screens saying "Great Seats Released"
Urging people to get the newly released seats before the early bird deadline.
The steward next to said that 8,000 season ticket holders hadn't renewed (some might have moved to different seats) but it seems that there were a lot of newcomers taking the seats and many, many have not renewed.
The group of 4 around me being some of the many.

Tony (#10) that's interesting. Most of my mates are in Lower Gwladys with one in Main Stand all have renewed. I and my other mate have relocated from Top Balcony to Upper Gwladys (I was fed up with listening to away support asking if I was in a library!) and all the guys around us have renewed. Maybe it's different in other parts of ground?

If it's for financial reasons please excuse me asking.

I genuinely believe that many had become so fed up they weren't going to renew.
Can't wait for the fixtures to come out now. Onwards Everton.

Come early June, the Moyessiah is reinstated as manager...
20 Posted 19/05/2016 at 15:52:52
The season ticket prices weren't frozen they were reduced by 5%. Everton were the first club in the Premiership to reduce prices, some since have frozen their prices. So for dyed in the wool blues like me it was a no brainer, Yes I wanted RM sacked in fact I didnt want him in the first place. But I have had to put up with lousy managers before and will no doubt have them again. But hopefully the next manager will be the right one.
I would just like to say that I think Evertons approach to young supporters is great. My Grandson sits next to me and he only pays £95 for his season ticket. There hasn't been much to cheer in the last 2 seasons but the sight of so many young Blues attending the game is truly heartwarming.

It does nothing but attempt to cover up the lack of success at the club and needs to be left in the past.

In truth, I wouldn't have known what to do with my Saturday afternoons when Everton are at home, although it had become an effort and a chore while Roberto was in charge... no fun going to the games.
Now, I think we have been given some hope that things will change for the better.
What's the new song for Goodison Park? "The times they are a changin'".
26 Posted 19/05/2016 at 20:41:08
Now, that's the bit that needs to change a lot next season, and here's hoping a new and energetic style of play will provide the right platform to do just that.
27 Posted 20/05/2016 at 00:12:14
I want to spend more time with her but I would say about 20% of the decision was due to Martinez and just being fed up of watching boring shite footy for two seasons.

Can you imagine the outcry if that twat was reappointed? Cannot see Moshiri signing that one off, no matter how much BK begs him to bring his mate back.
Completely off topic, seems like we're 12-1 to finish top 4 next season and.......14-1 to be relegated! How is that possible? Guess the bookies, much like us, haven't got a clue what Everton will do next season. Still find the 12-1 for top 4 very poor odds, was expecting at least 33-1 if not 50-1.
31 Posted 20/05/2016 at 17:13:19
Of course, I hope that will be proven not to be the case!
32 Posted 20/05/2016 at 18:12:38
I get your point though, I certainly don't see Everton as The Peoples Club any longer.
33 Posted 20/05/2016 at 20:57:42
This is a game changer for our club. Bill has made fuck ups, but this deal was a genius move. It's not surprising so many fans recognise the potential and want to see first hand what will be a transformational season for our club next season.
