Free football? Maybe...

Cardiff City have been fairly creative with season ticket selling (as most clubs have been perhaps), and this time they've come up with another idea.

If you buy the 2010/11 season ticket (yes next season's) before the end of December, they will guarantee no price rise for the next 5 seasons, irrespective of where City are playing. Given that it's highly unlikely that prices would fall, but very likely that they'd go up, this seems like a no lose scenario. Mini-Stats next year's ticket is only £49 as an under 16 anyway, which outstanding value.

Additionally, for the first 10,000 that sign up, there's an added bonus. If, and of course it's a big if, City are promoted to the Premiership this term, those 10,000 will get a full refund on next seasons ticket, meaning in effect that you get to watch City in the Premiership for free!!!!

Add in the ability to pay in 5 interest free instalments, and you'd be crazy not to do this. I'm not crazy, and I've signed up!

Clearly, the catch is they want our money - or at least the guarantee of it now, but it's worth it if you can afford it now.
