SOme may have them out for sale but is it not prudent to see how many fans will be allowed back first? Granted i reckon we will be ok ST wise if it is 2,000 at the start of the season but I am assuming thats the reason. There are a lot of EFL clubs who have not yet done so.

I htink the club will reward those who have had tickets the last couple of years for sure
Or at least half price to make up for only seeing two matches last season ?

If the season card is over £300 I’ll probably do more away games and just pick and choose the odd home game.

Unfortunately a lot of clubs are charging over £300 odd and for terracing.

Genuine question why give other clubs the revenue rather than your own club ?
Maybe you live closer to away games, but after travel costs would it not be the same

I see your point and totally agree, but with getting a season ticket I have to do shift swaps and use leave to go to every home game. If it’s under £300 I’d be willing to do that. If it’s not then I’ll just pick and choose. Yes it probably costs more but it’s one small payment at a time rather than one big payment.

Does it really matter whether I go home or away, surely it’s more about supporting the team. I won’t be sacrificing 22 home games to go to 22 away games. It would be more like 10 away games and 5-10 home games depending on circumstances.

I just cannot justify forking out more than £300 on a season ticket.

For the day out it’s only one club at a time not the same club 22 times. We have had a lockdown for over a year all the days out to different places albeit in the uk I can get atm I will take.

plus haven’t been to over half the grounds in NL so it be interesting.

This is perfectly put tbh. Agree with everything here.

I hope they essentially write last year off and we get to pick our original seats again. We were in the same ones for years and years, but then obviously with the changes for last season, we couldn’t get them through no fault of our own.

I was told that although we had to move slightly for those two December games, once everything returns to normal you normal seats would by yours again

That’s fine but if we do well, the away ticket allocation could be a problem at some grounds and season card holders will get priority.

Thats assuming you can get away tickets. Apparently quite a few of the grounds will have limited away tickets and assume as they should they will go to ST first there may not be many left over
Wish I’d seen your reply before I made mine ?

I am sure we will get offered our season tickets from the 19/20 season.

I was told at the start of last season that my normal seat was safe and would be going back to it once covid was over. That's when everyone thought covid was going to last a couple of months

That’s fine, I’ll just go to the home games. I don’t see why this is such a big deal about my personal decision.

Not necessarily. As I've said elsewhere, the Trust have been working with the Club on a loyalty scheme for our most loyal travelling supporters. We've been waiting for the appointment of the new ticket office manager to push this forward as the software necessary was due to come in.

That is understood but I can imagine the club will be more keen to prioritise those who buy season cards and put money into the club than to just help out those who want away tickets and give money to other clubs. Surely it will be a combination of being both a season card holder and travel club member, who will get priority on small ticket allocations.
