Southampton are to close parts of St Mary’s next season in order to implement further cost-cutting measures at the club.
According to this report from the BBC three of the four corners will be closed. This will affect around 700 season ticket holders.
This, along with cuts to subsidised bus travel and match-day staffing could save them up to £250,000.
Chairman Michael Wilde told their website. “We deeply regret having to take these measures.
“But unfortunately they have been forced upon us by the financial situation we find ourselves in.
“We now have to make some unpleasant and unpalatable decisions to get the finances back on track.”
These areas will be reopened for games where ‘huge crowds’ are expected. So not very often then!
Should we feel sorry for our neighbours down the road or laugh our pants off?
