    1901 Club Re-Sale Values


    0 Not allowed!
    Has anyone recently acquired or divested a 1901 Licence through an (officially sanctioned) private transfer? if so, in which lounge and how much did it go for? I remember the club making a selling point of the likely appreciation in value of these licences "once we get into the premier league".....curious to know if this has proved to be the case.

      Probably depends on whether you were stupid like Timmy and have to keep paying £600 every 5 years or had the foresight to pay £1000 at the start for a lifetime deal.

      If Timmy had any sense he would have upgraded the 5yrs to lifetime at some point prior to the first 5yrs expiring!

      Doubt they offer that as an option now, do they? Will affect resale value as you will have to cough up in 3 years on top of what you pay.

      Think option is in original contract so would be hard for them to remove but as we know anything possible with BHAFC!! They obv may remove it from future new 5yr contracts!

      The original Amex presentation pack booklet had a mock--up of a web page whereby 1901 Seat Licenses could be traded lije a commodity. No idea if that web page actually came into existence tho.

      I don't suppose the 5 year licenses have much residual value, but i'm talking lifetime (50 year) licenses here.

      To put it another way, what do we think someone who is in the market for a 1901 seat would pay for it? Gold or platinum.

      I don't think it did. But then I would imagine the actual number of transfers must be fairly small (and some of those will presumably go back to the club rather than private buyers).

      Very difficult to answer without knowing of any that have been sold. It would take many thousands of pounds and a swap for a ST for me to part with mine. Are there that many people willing to pay well over the odds to get a ticket? I guess that most on the ST waiting list are newish supporters who won't pay over the odds in order to jump the queue. Maybe if you have several then you will get a company to pay over the odds.

      I think you have answered your own question.
