BORO have cut season card prices next season - regardless of which division they will play in.

The club today revealed cuts of at least 5% on all adult prices.

And the saving for under-18s is even bigger at pounds 202, a 13-game saving compared to booking seats match-by-match.

Supporters purchasing a season card by the May 2 Early Bird deadline will make savings of up to pounds 30 compared to purchasing after this date and by pounds 50 compared to making a purchase after the renewals deadline of June 6.

For the first time, Boro are also offering fans the option of purchasing their season card in four interest-free monthly payments in addition to a traditional option of paying via 10 monthly instalments.
