Brum freeze prices to thank their fans; SPEEDWAY.
BIRMINGHAM have handed their supporters a major vote of thanks ahead of the most important series of fixtures in the club's history.
Selco Brummies bosses have frozen admission prices for the home leg of their Elite League play-off semi-final against Wolverhampton, which takes place at Perry Barr a week on Monday.
Last season the club attracted criticism for increasing their prices at the semi-final stage, where they were eventually defeated by Swindon.
But this time around the Brummies have followed the example of the Robins and Wolves, who had already confirmed they were holding their regular charges.
In addition, season ticket holders will be entitled to free admission and there is a ten per cent discount on normal prices (adults PS16) for those who pre-book on 07800 566128 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
Brummies are hoping to recreate the atmosphere of several bumper attendances earlier in the summer when crowd figures were boosted by a number of successful promotions.
Owner Alan Phillips said: "We are pleased to peg our play-off semi final admission prices to that of a normal league match. We are expecting a record crowd, so we urge fans to buy advance tickets, and in so doing, obtain a ten per cent discount.'' Birmingham's position going into the home meeting will be dependant upon how they perform in this Monday's first leg at Wolverhampton.
Brummies topped the regular Elite League table but many experts believe this year's play-offs, which also include the Swindon v Poole semi-final, are the most open for some time.
