ADMISSION to Foxhall Stadium this year to watch Ipswich Evening Star Witches in speedway action will cost £13.
The cost for senior citizens will be £9, while children admission stays at £3.
These prices compare with £12.50 and £8 in 2002, and include a programme and free parking.
Season tickets for 2003 will be priced at £260 adults and £180 concessions.
Witches fans still have time to buy them at a special rate. Until Saturday, January 11, season tickets will cost £240 and £155, and promoter John Louis will be at Foxhall Stadium on Saturday from 11am until 1pm to process applications.

Louis is today at a special meeting of the Speedway Promoters' Association in Rugby when he will be seeking clarification over the complicated rolling averages rule that is proving detrimental to Witches team-building plans.
Ipswich have so far confirmed Scott Nicholls, Jarek Hampel, Paul Hurry, Tom P Madsen and Danny Bird as certain starters and they will begin working on the remainder of their side next week.
The make-up of the Sky Sports Elite League should become clearer after today's meeting. Nigel Wagstaff is set to move from King's Lynn to take over at Oxford, making eight clubs – one less than in 2002.
Former Lynn promoter Keith Chapman, the owner of Norfolk Arena in Saddlebow Road, is likely to take control of the club and run in the Premier League.
British Speedway chairman Chris Van Straaten said: "An agreement is in place for Oxford to continue in the Elite League and King's Lynn's application for Premier League membership will be considered at our special meeting."
