LIKE-for-like season ticket sales at Millwall are up on last year, despite the club's relegation to League One.

Figures released by the club today show that 243 more fans have secured their seats at The Den for the 2015-16 campaign compared with 12 months ago.

As of Thursday, 3,799 supporters had taken advantage of early bird prices.

The saver discount expires at midnight tonight and the Lions reported another surge in sales this morning.

Many fans are believed to be renewing following the permanent appointment of club legend Neil Harris as manager.

"This is hugely encouraging for the club and an indication of how much optimism and belief there is here," said commercial director Alan Williams.

"It has been a difficult season in many ways, but the last eight weeks or so has seen everyone really pull together. There is a genuine sense of unity here again.

"I'd like to thank all of our season ticket holders, those who have renewed and those buying a season ticket for the first time, for supporting us in such numbers."

    Got mine. But I think the early bird offer should be extended to the end of May. There's a lot of bills to be payed at this time of year so come on millwall do the right thing. Coyl

      @block 28: Absolutely right, no harm in the club extending it and might even persuade some of those who were wavering to sign up for the next campaign!

    I agree
    I've got mine already too but , for the life of me I can't understand why £80 or so goes onto the cost this month. Why don't they have a cut off point such as June. Purchase a ticket before then and it guarantees you delivery in July ?

    Said I would not renew mine for next season .............................. but I have just renewed it ?
    Rude not to as I have a Lions Card so get a bit more discount.
    Agree with what has been said that the early saver should be extended at least until end of May.

    Really good point, come on JB and AA give some of fans the option to offset the cost I think we all deserve that after the last couple of seasons. I have said I actually think crowds will increase next year if we can get off to a decent start.
    Another way is to buy now on a credit card then swap the balance to a 0% offer usually only 3% so on £300 cost would be another tenner.

    Not surprised sales are up, personally I've had some good times over the years watching the boys in the 3rd division and I can't help but feel optimistic this time round. I really think this step back will pay dividends long term, at least that's what I keep telling myself and the wife when she's speaking to me. Agree that early bird should be extended also to maximise bums on seats.

    I had reservation about next year but renewed weeks ago, whilst Holloway was still here, am I an optimist?

    League 1 we'll be lucky to finish mid table lots of enthusiastic posts on here Reality it's physical and a Long slog don't hold your breath with the youngsters going up against seasoned pros it will take its toll
    NH knows it won't be a stroll he been there I'd like to be caught up in the optimism but 50 plus years of watching Wall we all know it will take at least 3 seasons if where lucky
    I'm sure the dislike button will go into meltdown but let's be realistic
    Wall for 1 and 1 for Wall

    Good news and i apprciate that the club havent put the prices up for some time but i dont think we should be paying Championship prices to watch League One football. Still fair play to loyal 3,799 +
