The Bucks went up as champions from the NPL Premier Division in April and will play in the National League North next season, the highest level at which has ever played.

The season starts on Saturday, August 6, with matches against sides including Derbyshire rivals Alfreton Town, Kidderminster Harriers, Darlington and Boston United among the attractions. In all, 23 home games will be played in the league, four more than in the NPL.

Director of football David Brindley said: "Fans are at the heart of Buxton FC and the early bird season ticket prices are a way of thanking those who intend to be with us all the way.

Adult season tickets are priced at £225. Concessions £150, ages 16–21 £75, ages 5–15 £30 and accompanied under-5s free. A digital option allows fans to display tickets on their smartphones.
