Yesterday, it was announced that Real Betis have surpassed 45,000 season ticket sales for the upcoming season. The previous record of 43,141 being set in the 2015/16 season. The fact this upcoming season is also yet to start, suggests there could be even more sales.

Have a look at the table below, which follows the sale of season tickets by the Andalusian club over the past 15 years. It’s well worth remembering that Betis have not always been in the Primera Divison throughout this time – highlighting how loyal and numerous their support is.

Year Season Ticket Sales
2001 36,900
2002 35,000
2003 32,700
2004 33,300
2005 38,400
2006 38,700
2007 37,400
2008 37,200
2009 28,800
2010 31,000
2011 37,400
2012 35,000
2013 33,800
2014 37,431
2015 43,141
2016 41,192

Going forward, it has long been established that Real Betis are a huge club that has yet to flourish. The number of season ticket sales for this season shows how much the people in the locality are willing to get behind Los Verdiblancos when they can see promise.

Given the quality and number of signings this summer, there is a growing expectancy that Betis will catapult themselves up the table this year. Even with the loss of Dani Ceballos to Real Madrid, the introduction of players such as Andrés Guardado, Cristian Tello, Víctor Camarasa and Sergio León along with the potential transfer of Ryad Boudebouz (see following link for further information: http://www.laliganews.co.uk/2425/ryad-boudebouz-join-real-betis/) has added an expectancy this coming year, which has culminated in 45,000 season ticket sales thus far.

Bringing Quique Setien in as manager has also gathering excitement amongst the supporters who are hoping he will put a similar footballing stamp on this Betis team as he did with the free flowing Las Palmas last season.

One thing for sure is that there will be great support for Betis once again for this coming season. We can just wait in hope the football will be good enough to satisfy the enormous support.
