Stephanie Booth: ‘I’ll cut prices at Racecourse’

ADMISSION prices to Wrexham FC home games could tumble if hotelier Stephanie Booth makes a successful bid for the club.

Mrs Booth has been outlining some of the changes she is considering if the current owners choose her to take over the Reds.

On internet site Facebook the businesswoman says she is looking at charging adults £10 and pensioners £5.

And all children under 12 could be allowed into the Racecourse for free.

She comments: “Do not listen to the doubters but be patient and judge me on what I actually do. Until then keep the faith.

“Under new ownership a new exclusive family area will be created with a zero tolerance on swearing.

“I promise a great day out and value for money at each and every home game but I cannot do anything until after the purchase is completed.

“We have a new online ticketing service ready to go which will allow fans to buy a meal and a match ticket together as well as other deals.”

Mrs Booth says fans could also be able to reserve seats “or even own their own” for match days.

She adds: “In September 2012 not only will Wrexham FC be financially viable it will be making profits.

“That will be reinvested in the club and its stadium.”

Mrs Booth says three television companies are showing an interest in filming a series if she is involved in Wrexham FC.

She has pledged to donate any fee she would receive from that to the football club.

Of her plans, she adds: “Things are speeding up at last and I hope to meet the owners and the Financial Services Authority’s forensic accountant in the next few days.

“As soon as we can quantify the creditor and debtor position we will be able to move to heads of terms.”
