Change is size & shape as technology kicks in at Gigg Lane
It’s not something that we wanted to do, but have been forced into making this change for two reasons.
The first is cost, our printers recently notified us of another price rise in the price of the previous programme format, and after checking with numerous other companies it became clear that this is a general upward trend. We had already made provisional plans to revert the programme to this size from next season, however the continuing production price rises, and the imminent arrival of a new product, has forced our hand early.
We are delighted to announce that in the next few weeks you will be able to download the programme to either your iPhone or your iPad. Full details of this new product will become available in the coming days, but the main and obvious benefits to the club are;
- Programmes will be available to fans anytime, anywhere.
- Increase in advertising revenue.
- We will be able to maintain, advertise, and sell programme back copies.
- Programmes will be available for purchase Worldwide the day before the game.
We are confident that this extra service, running in conjunction with our existing printed programme, will enhance not only revenue for the club, but also the purchase choices available to our supporters.
Full details of ‘Matchdaydigital’ will become available in the coming days, so please continue to visit the club website for updates and confirmation of the launch date.
