After securing Premier League survival for yet another season with a new brand of football on the pitch under popular manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, Southampton fans have been snapping up season tickets at a record level, reports the Daily Echo.

With a new ticket pricing structure in place to add to the excitement, over 20,000 season tickets have been sold, an amount much higher when compared to last season under Mark Hughes.

Over the last few years, the club has merely managed to stay in the English top flight and with no real success, there has been a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the Saints. 

The new manager, alongside reductions in many ticket prices, has created a sense of belief that the club can push higher up the table with a more free-flowing style of football.

Age brackets have also been extended from 18-21 to 18-25 to promote the younger fans to come and watch with bright times on the horizon for Southampton.
