How many season ticket holders do we have? I presume too many for all of us to go back at first, but how many at gold or silver to prioritise those?
About 55k ST holders as far as I'm aware. It's why getting a hold of match tickets, any match tickets at all, is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Thank God those days are over for me!

Tickets were probably never easier to get than the last year or so.
Even city at home tickets were coming up on this thread!
And it was a sunday not some weird Monday nighter in Jan in a fuel crisis or something.

Yeah, I was speaking more generally. This season has obviously been different with the level of antipathy that had developed towards the board, allied to the poor on-pitch performances at the time...

Will be very interesting how they pitch the season tickets.
No crowds at all for a few weeks, then most likely massively reduced ones.

Might be the first time the years of owning a season ticket has some actual benefit. Or they might just ballot or rotate STH with no newbies allowed.

Probably makes most sense to hold off as late as possible rather than continually refund non attended games

Just out of curiosity, how’s it working with payment for next season? Are they charging full price from the outset and then refunding per game until supporters are allowed back in?

they haven’t 100% confirmed yet. The last update was next seasons ticket was the cost normally minus the refund for the missed home games.

now next season has a start date and it’s confirmed it’s behind closed doors for at least a month, id imagine those games will be knocked off too

It makes sense for them to wait for the fixtures to be out as an absolute minimum. That'll be a couple of weeks after the championship play off final.

By then they'll have to work out how they'll decide which of our 50,000 season ticket holders will get preference for what will surely be a reduced capacity to start with.
Maybe it'll be as few as 40,000 with many not renewing, but i'll be intriguing.

I was gonna bin mine after a fair few years, but i'm monitoring it now. Could be worth my while if it's only a small amount of games you can get in for!

Thanks for the answers. Me and my son had been thinking about going on the waiting list now he’s got a job which allows him more time to go so I called earlier today to see about paying a deposit and got offered two together in the East stand. We usually sit there anyway with tickets through membership.

You've got offered 2 season tickets now?!

Wow, must have been a lot of cancellers. As I expect a lot are doing what I'm doing - sort of drifting along non committal, seeing how it pans out.

Are the tickets quite high up? 40 rows.

Yep, only phoned to ask how to pay a deposit as I couldn’t find a way to do it online. There were a few groups of two in the East and in both the nw and ne quadrants, all 3rd tier.
They’re row 35, we usually end up around about there with membership tickets anyway. I expected we’d to have to wait a while and then be offered tier 4 of the North stand.

I even got through straight away on the phone.

I'm just imagining how high a 4th tier of the North would be :) You'd be closer to the action at home!

I did one game on Row 40 of East 2 once. It's a bit surreal, as you can just about see the other crossbar, but not much above it! I was a legend that day, as I had 2 tickets, one in Row 3 (i think) and one in Row 40. Let my mate have the lower down one, as he didn't go as often as me :)

Enjoy being in there for now, and you can work down the stand in the next year or 2 :)

Im in N2402 when i spoke to the ticket office they confirmed i can stay where i am, so i should be in the railed standing section when everything is back to normal, which is awesome.

Renewed my pair the other day, "We would like to confirm that your Season Ticket is: Block E335 Row 20"

East stand can have a cracking atmosphere one game and then bang average the next. Still, it's the best alternative stand to the stretford (from my own experience before having a st), identical views and the atmosphere trumps the north and south sections.

I have a season ticket but can’t say I am that interested in going under social distancing measures etc. If I can’t stand with my mates and sing... it will be a bit shit.

I suspect they could give all ST holders a choice of opting out for matches with restrictions in place... then maybe run a ballot from those who opt in for each match if they are over subscribed.

If they do this, I'll probably renew mine. Opt out quite regularly until it calms down, then be glad to still be a STH for the last few months.

It already sounded like the first month would be BCD. But if anything the gov are slightly tightening things up now, so maybe even restricted attendances might be pushed back.
