I bought mine the day of the.Lincoln game, it is tricky for a lot of people with the financial position they are in

I’ve not even given it a consideration due to all the other stuff happening. They’ve extended the deadline so will definitely take a look in the next few weeks.

As things currently stand, I see no way proper footy will start in August, so these fans are effectively giving the club an interest free loan until the season starts. Given that we don’t even know which division we will be in, that’s great commitment.

I am now seriously thinking that this season will never be restarted, so the club will also need to think about what to do about refunds.

Got mine the other day in the faint hope we’ll be watching football again this year!

I would not want a refund for mine for the current season , hopefully most people will be in the same position

I doubt many people will request refunds in the current circumstances.

From the official site:

We do want to reassure supporters that in renewing early, we are committed to ensuring that no one loses out financially if the new season starts behind closed doors. So, if, for example, we cannot allow paying crowds in for the next six months of next season, then we would offer season ticket holders a free half season ticket for the following season, to compensate for the missed matches. Equally, if anyone has renewed a season ticket but subsequently find that they need the cash, we will look to refund those who request it.

that's good but will affect the club in the longer run
Actually, I think quite the opposite. The club will take a short-term hit on refunds but they should gain in the long term. In business and especially in football, if you treat your fans/customers right, they will remain loyal. Our club has done all the right things for some time - very few mistakes - and is being rewarded by that brilliant take-up of season tickets. How many other customers would pay so much upfront for a product when they don't know what it is (League One or League Two) or when it will be delivered (this year, next year??). Never have I been more proud to be a fan of this club (even in our First Division days, as it was easy then!).

Is all to do with projections I guess. If they know roughly how many people are and are not going to buy they can plan financially for the hit.

I am also loving the massive work the club are doing in the community, it will only work to benefit the club in the long run hopefully with more fans coming through the gates , only time will tell

It has to be said that everything being done by the club has a positive feel to it. I am sure that is not the case with many L1 and L2 clubs that will be sweating on survival. Interesting that Parry was critical of parachute payments. It seems a nonsense that a club like Sunderland can still be on big payments of this nature when in L1. It is a completely unfair situation. The fact that they shot through the Championship is simply poor management and yet they are cushioned from this.

when you hear of the championship clubs for every £1 they make the players are paid £2 pounds. something like the virus is going to kick up a shit storm they are tens if not hundreds of millions of pounds in the red and no fans or revenues coming in and the businessmen who own then have prob got no money coming from there other businesses to keep most clubs going. so it's only a matter of time b4 some clubs buckle under the strain. at least mark and Nicky seem to have things in place to a degree
