    Swansea City charging mascots Premier League prices

    Wasn't aware of this and not sure I'm comfortable with us doing it. Looks a bit small-time to me, particularly when you look at the others on the two lists.


    Premier League mascot prices
    West Ham United £700 :eek::D:rolleyes:

    Leicester City £600

    Tottenham Hotspur £405

    Wolves £395

    Crystal Palace £375

    Brighton £350

    Burnley £300

    Fulham £270

    Cardiff City £255

    Watford £250

    Bournemouth £185

    Free: Arsenal, Everton, Chelsea, Huddersfield, Liverpool, Emirates Marketing Project, Man United, Newcastle United and Southampton.

    The £700 at West Ham includes a free telescope to use from the seat assigned to the mascot so they can enjoy that pitch-side feeling.

    I don't agree with the free ones. I'd be really tinkled off if I put my son's name down and he missed out on getting to do this because of chance.

    Bit unfair of the BBC to put the Caravan Club at the top, I assume that's what they have to pay the kid (tax payer funded), embarrassment money sort of thing.

    I just checked as thought it unfair on less well off supporters and a high headline price and it seems that some are drawn at random.

    Also Price is dependent on game:

    CAT A game: Weekends £405 Mid Week £380
    CAT B game: Weekends £330 Mid Week £305
    CAT C game: Weekends £280 Mid Week £255

    The package includes:

    • Two tickets for the game (one to be used by the mascot). A limited number of extra tickets can be purchased but are subject to availability
    • Replica Kit
    • Souvenir Photograph
    • Matchday Programme
    • Certificate

    Our mascots arrive two and a half hours prior to kick off where they will be taken to the tunnel to obtain some autographs; we don’t guarantee that they will get all of the players. They will then return to our mascot waiting area where their kit and match tickets are distributed. 15 minutes before kick off parent/guardian go to their seat and the mascots are taken back to the tunnel ready to go out with the team.

    Juice and sandwiches are provided for the mascots and tea/coffee for parents/guardians.

    Mascots will line up in height order (the players don’t) smallest one will go with the captain centre circle with the others following Chirpy along the pitch. When they have finished they will then be returned to their parents in the stand.

    Assume the match attending tickets must be close to the tunnel?

    I love the point about the players not also lining up in height order

    I must admit i did not know that either, how things change both my son and daughter have been mascots for Spurs when they were younger, as well as leading the players out they got a full strip free and free match tickets for us parents.

    They obviously forgot the part where they're given the Kool Aid to drink. What a load of nonsense.

    And that is how it should be! Application and random draw.

    I do agree, problem is despite what clubs say about looking after their fans its really all about the money they make off us.

    Maybe kids are different nowadays, but when I was one, I'd have paid money for a guarantee I didn't have to be involved. On the other hand, it's probably got more to do with the parents wanting to take pictures and tell everyone their kid has been a mascot than it has to do with the innocent victims (sorry, overjoyed recipients). :D

    Apparently 2 get chosen from the junior spurs members and go free - the rest are purchasable

    That's hardly a fair measure. Kids could be on that list forever and never get a ticket.

    Makes far more sense that those who want it most (and show it financially) get the opportunity.

    Did either of them get to hold Ron Burgess' hand as he led the team out?

    Having more money doesn't mean you want it more. Probably the opposite.

    Although you try hard, I'm not gonna take the bait. Go troll somewhere else on the forum.
    Perhaps somewhere where you can pay to be the biggest troll.

    None of my kids or grandchildren have wanted to do it and I always feel a little sorry for the 10 kids who don't get a chance to kick around with the players before the kick off.
