Southampton fans of Twitter have been excitedly commenting after it was revealed that the club have already sold more season tickets for 2019/20 than the whole of the last campaign.
The Saints have flogged nearly 20,000 despite the tickets only being on general sale for a couple of days under a new pricing structure that was introduced this summer.
Two-thirds of season-ticket holders have seen their cost reduce, whilst the other third have had theirs frozen and under-11s will be able to visit every league game at St Mary’s in 2019/2020 for a mere £19.
There is a renewed sense of optimism on the south coast in spite of two consecutive terms battling relegation in the Premier League with lofty ambitions under new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Southampton fans may love Ralph Hasenhuttl but do the owners? Check out the video below…
And members of the Saints army, as well as being delighted about the positivity of the news and the prices involved, have put the sharp increase in sales down to the modern Austrian gaffer.
Below is a list of their best reactive Tweets…
The club have already sold more season tickets for next season than they did for the whole of the last campaign. It is believed that the club have sold almost 20,000 tickets so far. Price reductions and better football on display.

The £19 ST for kids hasn’t been mentioned much, but it’s brilliant. Kids might miss games (they all have so many options), this is great for parents like me and it’s investing in future fans.
