Ipswich Town have announced they have already sold close to 10,500 season tickets for the up-and-coming League One campaign.
It means that the club – which is preparing to play in the third-tier for the first time since 1957 – is already close to matching their final season ticket sales figure for this current campaign just a week after they went on sale.
More than 1,200 new purchasers have signed up for next season.
Prices have been cut by 12.5 to 15% for those renewing across all areas of the ground. New purchasers also benefit from a 7.5% reduction on last year's early bird price.
In addition, there will be a price rebate of 10 per cent if 12,000 are sold by the Early Bird deadline of May 6. That rebate figure would rise to 15 per cent were 13,000 sold and 20 per cent if the number reached 14,000.
For example, an adult renewing in the lower tiers will pay £333 as it stands but would get £33 back if sales surpass 12,000.

Those that currently pay by direct debit will have their seat automatically renewed unless they cancel in writing by May 6.
All supporters who purchase a season ticket for 2019/20 before the first day of the campaign will have their ticket frozen at that price if the club is promoted to the Championship for 2020/21.
“Paul's (Lambert) asked me to keep him up to date on how the season ticket sales are going,” Town's general manager of football operations, Lee O'Neill, told the club website.
“It's great to see so many new season ticket holders getting behind the club. We targeted attracting around 2,000 or so new purchasers to have a chance of reaching that initial 12,000 figure and we are halfway there with still a week to go.
“It's a new challenge for everyone next season and it will be a big test but the aim is clear, to return to the Championship as quickly as possible.”
Matchday prices have been reduced for next season – they start at £23 for adults – though purchasing a season ticket can bring a saving of close to £200, the same as eight free games.
Season ticket holders can continue to take advantage of the club's interest free Direct Debit payment scheme over 12 months.
