The programme tonight was an 8-page effort but only cost £1. For me it’s the way clubs are going to have to go in the lower leagues.
The Southern League clubs seem to be going en masse for online programmes with possibly a teamsheet available at the ground. Personally I hate it but maybe the solution is an 8-page match programme on the day for £1 but a match magazine online that is available 3/4 days before the game. If it’s interesting enough (& free to read online) it may entice a few more to the game.
Personally, I’ve stopped buying programmes @ £3 or £3.50 each. More often than not they are colourful but a very moderate read. And I really haven’t got any more room to store the damn things! Clubs have to move with the times & if the Internet is making local papers obsolete then the time delay producing 64-page programmes is doing the same.
I don’t mind paying £1 for what is basically a glorified teamsheet & stats page and it has the advantage of not taking up too much space to store it.
