Such as ?


The 4-ticket bundles they do every season perchance?

I'm suggesting they offer flexibility muirinho. 4 tickets is great but not if it's shitty old dead rubbers at the club's choosing - meet the casual fan half way.

It’s not. The bundles are available throughout the season.

Nope. When it comes to ticketing the club are top notch.

The club do that already. Not sure there are many clubs where the casual fan can pick up a ticket for any game for £20. It’s a bizarre side effect of probably having the best pricing in the league that some people want even more discounts and benefits and ignore the fact that they are already there, for everyone, for every game !

The people who seem to appreciate the ticket prices most are the casual fans/big club fans who love the fact you can pay £30 or so and bring their kids and watch a reasonable standard match whenever it’s convenient

Guess we’re a bit spoilt. Anyway, renewed. Let’s just hope the ‘variants’ do wrecks another season

We`ve got till the 25th, I'm not jumping in just yet, times are too uncertain, I know the club will refund but I will keep it in my pocket until I'm more sure of the outcome.

So Club 1871 has switched sides in the South Stand and now links in to Y26. That will make some noise. We'll be in line with the 18 yard box. Can't believe how long it's been without going to a game.

Outdoor sport will be allowed spectators even if limited capacity. Season ticket holders will get first bite.

Ascotexgunner Just curious about the value for money other clubs give seeing as ours is such incredible value.
So I picked on the two most deluded sets of fans in the League.....Bournmouth and Forest.
Bournmouth is eye watering......
The cheapest adult seat is 550 and just to sit in the main stand is an eye watering 760 quid.
Forest.....at least....is more realistic.....cheapest is 365 quid to watch Houghton's turgid football.


I'd pay £550 if our ground was walking distance from decent pubs . . .

windermereROYAL ^ cheers, so we renew now and Boris puts a stop to it on the 14th, I`ll wait.


You do you, but you won't be losing out:

What happens if games are played behind closed doors next season?
After an incredibly challenging 12 months, we understand that some supporters may be reluctant to commit to a Season Ticket due to the uncertainty that continues to surround spectator attendance.

Therefore, we have committed to introducing a pandemic promise for the 2021-22 season.

If a match which forms part of a Season Ticket is either cancelled, played without supporters in attendance (played behind closed doors) then the Club shall provide the holder with a refund for that match on a pro-rata basis no longer than 30 days from the fixture.

Further information will be communicated to Season Ticket Holders should this scenario arise.
What if attendance is capped at say 10,000 and we have more than 10,000 ST Holders?

Dunno, I expect the club can't answer that yet.

But logically, I would assume its done on a season ticket + loyalty points basis, like it was at the end of 2020 when fans starting going back.

I'm happy to renew based on the way the club handled things last time around, offering refunds, taking retainers.... all pretty fair, I actually trust them to do right by the fans if we find ourselves in a repeat position this year.

Personally speaking, the main problem I have is convincing Mrs FL that it's safe environment.... that isn't helped by the fact I may have to get a park and ride bus to the game (my employer is moving to Green Park, so I'm going to angle for match day parking there)

Renewed today, seriously they have to let fans back in now even if it`s reduced, clubs will simply to the wall if they don`t.

The deal they got from the PL allowed a lot of them to take out loans to cover the losses.

But football is an industry where is all clubs see a reduction in income in the same way then it's not too bad. You can slash your transfer spending and release players in the knowledge that the rest of the league is doing the same, so it won't impact you anywhere near as much as if you'd acting alone. That's not to say that last season didn't blow a hole in a lot of club budgets though.
