Taken from the Carlisle United forum:
"Programmes - The club has a new deal with H&H Reed in place to print 16-page fold-out match preview for each game next season. These are expected to be sold at £1.50 each. Ideas welcome for a name to be used."
I'm quite surprised that Carlisle are actually producing a programme. Why do clubs think that this design of programme is practical within a stadium.

I'm guessing one side will open out into a poster of individual players, maybe?

I can see the logic behind Carlisle United's decision. Producing a programme that consists of a single sheet of paper means that there is no need to include the (formerly obligatory) advert for the FL sponsors. How many people will be willing to pay £1.50 for something so thin remains to be seen.

Perhaps it might be a gatefold programme (of the type York did in the late 70s/early 80s).

Stevenage intend to carry on with paper programmes but will keep the situation under review, and will be trialling digital programmes for their Checkatrade Trophy games: https://www.stevenagefc.com/...venage-fc-2018-2019/

Re: [davy c] Programmes no longer compulsory in EFL. [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

There was an article in the Stevenage programme today about the EFL decision to remove the "commercial obligation" to publish a programme. Interestingly, it said that the clubs were canvassed after the vote, with 55 saying they would continue to print while the other 17 did not commit.

It also says that the number of programmes sold per week is estimated at 600k - I assume this figure includes Premier League. But it also said some lower league (presumably EFL) clubs can have a print run as low as 350.

The article also suggested the vote may mean a possible revival in programme sales as clubs might now aim for something a little more original. Fleetwood, for example, have apparently switched to a slimline programme for which they're charging £1.

Colchester United will be giving fans the chance to read all about it in 2018/19, with the exciting news that every fan coming to home matches will be given a complimentary programme with their ticket.

Fleetwood’s programme last season was a super little effort, a well-designed 24 pager with a surprising amount of reading. It also had a hint of individuality about it . . .
Having seen their first effort of 2018-2019 I must say I was disappointed, fewer pages and very little to read; rather hoping it will improve after this though. I think things were much the same on the pitch last Saturday.

I was at the Oxford U v Peterborough U match last Saturday as an away fan, and I've only just learned about this! (OK I'd forgotten this thread...)
I had a bit of a job finding a programme outside the ground, in the end bought one off their Supporters Club stall outside the main stand. Once I'd got through the away turnstile I noticed a programme stand, but still didn't twig that it was any different to the one I'd got.

Now I'm in a quandary about whether to seek out an away version at the Posh game today, or make do with the home version. Must admit I'm tending towards just keeping the one I've got - the away one can't be that different can it???

On a separate note, I also filled in the annual PUFC supporters survey this week. There was a whole section about programmes - they're definitely considering going online only next season.
I told them I definitely wouldn't pay for an online prog, and suggested the St Ives system of basic cheap printed job + full online version. I won't hold my breath though lol

Interesting question posed by Crewe Alex chairman John Bowler at a fans forum meeting at the Alex last Monday night ( 18th ) when he asked the 80 or so fans present as to whether they bought match programmes or not.



5 apparently raised their hands.


It's already got very difficult to get one of the few team sheets pre match , this was a measure taken to restrict them as it was thought it was affecting programme sales.


Whatever next ?

Indeed there is a choice - pay it and be resentful or don't purchase and be resentful. If only someone could think of an option that does away with the resentment altogether.

According to yesterday's Evening Standard, AFC Wimbledon did not issue for their League Cup tie v. MK Dons on Tuesday 13th August. The story implied that this might have had something to do with the home club having been ordered to stop referring to the visitors simply as "MK Dons" and so I had a look at the official AFC Wimbledon site for the home club's point of view. There was a statement on the website which stated that "there is no requirement to produce programmes for Carabao Cup ties" and they were also expecting a lower than usual crowd, so they "did not consider it viable to produce a programme"

So what are we to make of this? The crowd was 2,191 which is only half of what Wimbledon normally get. But they could have produced a 4 page programme if they wanted, which would not have been too expensive to produce. It will be interesting to see if they produce programmes for home League Cup ties in future seasons. And of course, there is no longer any requirement to produce programmes for EFL games either. It will be even more interesting to see if they issue next time they are at home to MK Dons in a League fixture.

Incidentally the Evening Standard also reported that the scoreboard was (coincidentally) broken, so "MK Dons" didn't appear on it either.

By even doing a 4 pager they would I suppose have had to have mentioned the visitors which is what they referred to them as over the whole of the twitter feed on the night barring once when it was MK. Time this ridiculous lot grew up.

Carlisle United have reverted to a traditional style programme this season - 48 pages.

Heard rumours that Stevenage are not issuing a paper programme but haven't found anything to confirm it.
