Agreed. I'm sure the club will be waiting on Boris and the announcement.

Can't really pop the season card holders back in their normal seats if the government wants social distancing within the stadiums.

Looking forward to getting back to watching live football.

You can if you sit in the South Lower - we have had Social distancing there for years

Hopefully these will be out this week.

Seems to be taking a while but I guess they want the right deals and prices to entice as many fans as possible.

More like they are waiting to see what Boris says in his briefing tonight.

Would not surprise me if it goes to existing season cards again because of the capacity restrictions and also social distancing

They can take as long as they like IMO. This is probably one of the most difficult and crucial season card releases in the clubs history. They simply cannot mess this up.


Could you expand a bit more on that please - genuinely interested to know your thoughts.
Do you mean 'difficult' in terms of the pricing ?

Probably also the need to remain competitive in a division where spending for success is commonplace, while also appeasing the fans they have consistently let down for three years in a row. Get this wrong and they'll never get some of those fans back - the ones they haven't lost already.

Then stop putting ‘next week’ on it. As it gives expectation to the fans. Just leave it at soon. I mean it doesn’t overly bother me at the moment. I’m going to wait before I buy as I want to know if we will be able to go first.

Without getting political I think the latest announcement may have had a big factor in this. There still seems to be no certainty in when unrestricted full houses will be allowed back in again (Yes I know we got relegated :Winking:)

I think the "next week" was said in good faith, and then there were the rumours about "freedom day" being put back, which obviously proved to be the case. That's had an impact.

Although that doesn’t affect me, I think that’s two quite good options there for season card holders from last season. This is what you get when you have a CEO!

Agreed, they seem like two good options. Has anyone financially minded worked out what the pro rata refund would be? Assume it won't be much as there were 21 iFollow (at a tenner each) and 2 live games. I honestly can't remember what I paid for my season ticket last year!

Those benefits include honouring the price of a 2021/22 Season Card for the 2022/23 season

This indicates that prices are increasing surely?
