Watford season tickets go back on sale tomorrow and those who haven't renewed already and first time buyers face a rise of less than five per cent on the Earlybird prices.

The new rates mean the cost of a season ticket has now risen by around eight per cent on average compared to last year’s Earlybird price.

An adult season ticket in the Rookery or Lower Rous will now costs £383, which is a £17 and 4.6 per cent increase on this year’s Earlybird window.

It is a £23 increase for adults in the Upper Rous and £16 in the Family Stand; a rise of 4.9 per cent.

The initial two-week offer ended on Saturday evening and more than 9,500 fans have already renewed for the 2014/2015 campaign.

This year's current total is around 200 more than after last summer's Earlybird deadline, when the figure was 9,356.

The Golden Boys had around 12,000 season ticket holders during the 2013/14 campaign.

Tickets go back on sale from tomorrow morning and are available through three methods; by calling 01923 223023, in person at the ticket office and online, although new applicants are unable to do so online until after the Huddersfield Town game on May 3, when seats not renewed will be released.

The Golden Boys insist they will adhere to the East Stand 'move-back promise' made under a previous regime.

Fans who want to go back or those who are keen to move to the East Stand next season are asked to renew in their current seat.

They will then have a chance to swap during a 'movement window' which the club say will take place as soon as possible after the season ends.

The full price list can be seen below.

Let's enjoy the rebuilt stadium and let's enjoy an even better season. Keep the good ones and get rid of the baggage and, to repeat yet again my thoughts, no more rubbish loans.

Financially, not really. Inflation is below 2% and wages aren't even keeping up with that. Then again, we are playing fantastic football and look good for making the playoffs next season. Is it worth it? Probably not, but most of us don't care. Compared to Prem prices this is cheap, and at the end of the day it's all money that's going to the club.

Personally, I'd like to see prices down, not up and getting the stadium close to full for every game. Build up goodwill amongst fans, get a great atmosphere and move the club onwards and upwards.Wage packets are not increasing so I'd like to see community aware clubs reflecting this.

Next you'll want free admission to those on benefits...it's not a charity and gate receipts only contribute a fraction of overall running costs to a club of our size.

Not being funny but if the Pozzo's haven't built goodwill amongst the fans that care about our club with what they have done so far, then they may as well pack up shop.

I got a job when I was 12 to get my first season ticket, this is fare pricing for those who want to go....you won't increase attendance by giving them away, as shown by the empty seats on the old bring a kid days.

Sorry I see where you are coming from but don't agree with your strategy.

Can't complain about these prices. Very fair. Also those who buy a season ticket for this coming season guarantee getting first choice to renew the following season when we will be in the Prem.

I'd be quite happy to pay an extra fiver a match for the whole of next season if it meant we would sign Tozser permanently

Might consider getting a 75 miler for the first time next season. Used to have ST for years before I moved down here. Would just like to see who we retain and sign on before making final decision. But as Beppe says, hats off to those who have already committed.
