  1. There's a big difference between a refund, and the deposit getting carried over into next season, they are 2 different things. There's still no change from the original conditions. If you pay the £70 deposit, and season tickets do not resume until next season, and you then decide you DON'T want to renew, then you will not get your £70 back. That hasn't changed, and that is only only situation where refunds could potentially have applied (not this season because if season tickets resume this season those who paid the deposit have already committed to it and will be obliged to pay th
  2. Another nomination for Gerry Taggart from me. Thought he was a complete donkey when he joined. Didn't have a great start but turned out to be a great signing.
  3. It didn't state anywhere it was non-transferable though. It said it was non refundable, as is still the case. If we don't reach full capacity this season, then anyone who's paid their £70 and subsequently decides not to renew next season won't get their £70 back. That hasn't changed as far as I can see For those that do renew next season in that scenario, it didn't state that the £70 would be credited towards it, but neither did it say that it wouldn't. It probably wouldn't have, but it didn't say that. The wording maybe implied it wouldn't, but equally the lack of any
  4. Having just read the section in the faq page again, there's actually nothing to suggest that it doesn't carry over to next season, and continue to act as a deposit. All its saying is that once you pay your £70 deposit, if it turns out there's no fully capacity this season, you won't get a refund. It doesn't say that it won't continue to act as a deposit for a season ticket whenever they are available again. It could actually be implying that if you pay your deposit this season, and full capacity doesn't return within the season, and then you subsequently decide you don't want to r
  5. Doesn't need to be today, as the only change needed is to allow the £70 to count as a deposit for full season ticket renewal beyond this season, rather than only this season. They could make that change weeks from now, doesn't need to be before people start paying the £70. I don't think anyone has any issue with paying a £70 deposit up front, it's the fact that it seemingly won't carry over beyond this season that's the problem.
  6. The really big problem with this situation, which I don't think anyone has mentioned yet, is when the stadium reverts back to full capacity. Let's say, hyperthetically, that happened in January. All those that paid their £70 will then be expected to pay up the remaining £250 or whatever. What happens though with all those, maybe elderly or vulnerable, that still don't want to risk it? The club wont want several thousand empty seats every game. 2 obvious options: 1) Renew and start going again 2) Decide not to renew and lose your season ticket, despit
  7. Sounds good but it depends on how their ballot will work. If everyone can enter every ballot, then some fans could get to see a lot more games than others. Leicester are the only club so far that I've seen are using a games cycle ballot to ensures everyone, if they want, is guaranteed a ticket to at least 1 in every x games, and everyone will be entitled to the same number of games. That's a much fairer system than a free for all that I suspect some clubs will have. Having said that, for all I know, every club is using a games cycle system. I don't know. Ed
  8. I actually think the club have got it almost right. Apart from the £70 being non-refundable. If they revised it so that it carries over to next season or beyond if they have to operate indefinitely on a reduced capacity, then I think that it would be as good a solution as possible. I don't mind so much having to pay normal match day prices so much, as the club have to recoup some money sonehow from what they will be losing from attendances being about 70% down for maybe the whole season. Its only what non season ticket holders have to always pay anyway. One problem the
  9. I wasn't far off with my suggestion, apart from I missed off the £70 retainer, and I spelt ballot wrong.
  10. If capacity is around 9000 and season ticket holders get 90% of those that's approx 8000. If the majority of season ticket holders pay the £70 then, that's 24000 people eligible per cycle, so each cycle will be 3 games. So it'll be 1 in 3 games which if it lasts for the full season will be 5 or 6 games, bearing in mind we can't attend until at least October. What they don't know is how many will apply for games within each cycle. If its only 16000 of those 24000, then the first 2 games will have 8000 sth each, and none at the 3rd! After the ballot, I guess if applications are less
  11. You can't not win the ballot though. Its not to decide IF you go to a game in the cycle, but WHICH game within the games cycle you go to. If the games cycle is 3 games, everyone will go to 1 of those 3 games, assuming you apply for all 3. Once you 'win' a ballot, you can't enter the ballot for any of the remaining games in the cycle. If it's a 3 game cycle for the whole season, then basically everyone will get 5 or 6 games each. This ensures everyone who pays the £70 will be able to go to at least 1 game in the cycle, as long as you apply for each game. If it's e.g. Brighton, Fulha
  12. If anyone wants an idea of what it might be like, check out the J League (Japan) on Free Sports, Sky channel 422 I think. Live games there, and highlights show repeated several times a week. Approx. 1 in 4 seats occupied, everyone wearing a mask, seems to be working OK. I would imagine in England they would give all season ticket holders the option to opt out until stadiums are allowed to operate at full capacity, with their season ticket seats held for them of course, whether it be for 3 months or 3 years. Let's say that a quarter of season ticket holders opt out, bearing in mind
  13. A new development would likely to involve some corporate seating etc. in the east stand, but rather than those being very high up in the new tier, I'd have thought they might make those facilities and lounges etc. linked to sections of the lower tier, and bump up the prices dramatically in those blocks. That survey a few months ago was basically focusing on which areas they could get away with bumping up the prices in.
  14. Yes, I meant approx. 3000 additional tickets, on top of those currently available (after season tickets, aways fans, corporates etc), but they are already selling out each game. Selling 7,000 seats to non season ticket holders per game, of which only around 3,000 will be in additional to what we currently sell out each game, should be easily achievable, surely. This is assuming that a) the number of new season tickets available is around 7,000 (may in reality be a bit less), and b) those season tickets do indeed sell out.
