Just had a look on the EFL site and next seasons fixtures come out on Thursday 24th June.

Thank you but I must admit as I truly understand the reason for it being a little late on today's climate
I think we're missing a trick considering the manager we have in place

Not sure what way it's going to go. Pricing is key, at the same time will reduced prices get a substantial increase in volume. Tough one for sure.

Probably quite right given they still have last years....  We must be about the last club to resolve that as yet.

As we season ticket holders have been able to watch all the home matches for free this season  why is everyone expecting a refund ?
Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: Pliskin on May 21, 2021, 01:45:46 pm
A season ticket for most adults costs £300 or more.

Non-season ticket holders could've paid £10 a time to watch each home game, therefore getting the same thing for just £230. So some of the people who bought a season ticket might feel a bit hard done-to.

I, like most people I imagine, wouldn't expect or want any sort of refund but not everyone will see it that way.

You do not spend £300 plus on a Season Ticket to watch on the tele, it is for live football and that was not provided (through no fault of the club of course). It is a lot of money and in times like these anyone asking for a refund is entitled to one.

I'm not speaking personally, I don't want a refund for my ST and indeed spent more than £200 on top to watch iFollow away games and cup games, as many other supporters have. But you can't expect some not to exercise their right to that refund and I'm sure the club will provide one for those people.

Total I spent on the family was about £700.

Had we bought every single I follow game (which I wouldn't have given they moved kick off times about) it's have max cost £230.  That's a huge difference for a far interior product.

Lots like us will have seen redundancies also in their work so expecting something back doesn't seem unfair to many.

The club has a duty to make everyone aware of the club’s obligation to offer what refund they believe that is their entitlement. The decision not to except should be that the of supporters and then at least the club can avoid any  disgruntlement  . IMO a decent discount towards the new season 21/22 would be a compromise of sorts .

I hope that after all the fans who have donated their season ticket money by not claiming refunds, will make the club feel obliged to publish a full set of accounts, and not an abbreviated one as usual .

I hear the fsf among others are putting pressure on clubs to stop publishing abbreviated accounts too

Anyone who wants a refund should get it no questions asked and neither should they have to chase it.

because A), you paid for a ticket to attend at the KMS, which never happened, and B), what if you had no home WiFi and had no option to watch ifollow?
If you bought front row tickets for the world Cup final at great expense, then we're told you had to watch it on TV, would you accept the decision or ask for a refund?

I won't be asking for a refund. But I can understand why some would..

Same. I don't want my money back and I want to help the club wherever I can within reason, but I might have felt differently had I been in BFYP's position where I'd bought multiple Season Tickets in the family.

It was made very clear by the club that anyone wanting a refund would get it.

Suggesting that they are dragging their feet on this is unproven, unless evidence can be provided to the contrary.

Just spoke to the club and you won't have to wait very long.

The club are itching to get the info out. The EFL have advised clubs to plan for a normal season in terms of numbers etc, and from what I've just heard, I hope everyone will be pleased with what's on offer.

What with a new era under Richie and the prospect of getting back into the stadium, exciting times are ahead.

I held back last season due to Covid but this time I'll be making my purchase very soon!

It appears that way. First impression is they've done some good things in this. The 18-24 piece is a great move imo.

I feel they could lay out a little more about last season for those who aren't renewing or want other options.

But I think the vast majority will be happy. It depends if you see your purchase as a club member or a ticket....

You will get £40 off the cost of your renewal for the next 5 seasons.

(Essentially giving you back 50% from your season ticket last season that you didn’t get to use)

I'm actually really disappointed with the offer.

Having spent over £900 on 4 season tickets last year to get at best £230 worth of value back using Ifollow (you only need one £10/game), I've basically donated £670 to the club. I don't want half of that back over the next 5 years.

I was actually happy to write off my Season ticket off, but with a significant partial refund on the others and this offer is not or near that.

I'm now thinking about not renewing now or in the future - I've just shown I can live without football for 12 months. Money is tighter than ever for some.

Can we legally request a full refund for services not delivered?

Completely agree, nothing to incentivise new season ticket purchasers .

I would be classed as a 'new season ticket purchaser' despite having a season ticket for 20 plus years unbroken. Just because I didn't purchase last year for obvious reasons . I also purchased I follow for every match, despite being dog shit for half the season.
I also donated the remainder on my 19/20 season ticket refund .

I'd say there's a big chunk of people in the same boat as me .

As you say it’s impossible to please everyone but not everyone who took part in the survey wanted to donate the season ticket money, we hoped to just carry it over, have to apply for a refund and purchase again

Is it though? Is it really?

Shrewsbury’s thank you to supporters was to give them all a voucher for a free cup of tea/coffee at all home games next season.

Rovers are giving you £40 off your Season Ticket and giving you access to the Experience Club which is worth £120!

Brilliant if you ask us - but we have a glass half full perspective on things.

They are not giving me £40 off anything, they have kept the car park pass money, I was happy to donate my ST Money, I signed up for the lottery, I thought maybe we would get parking for free this season, but there has been no mention of the car park money

They're giving you £40 off next seasons ticket price, plus doing it again for another 4 seasons. How is that not giving you a discount?

Yes, I accept the car park but that's a separate issue. Why not take that up with the club?


Not sure it’s a separate issue when it was bought alongside a season ticket, and yes I will be asking the question before I renew, it feels like they have ignored the money from the car park in the hope no one notices

I've just been reminded that this issue did come up at a supporters board meeting.

There was communication that went out to each individual about their car park pass, but it appears not everybody got it. So, I would suggest you get in touch.




It appears you may have ...but as i see it the ones who purchased the Car parking Didn't get any communication in any way !

Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: Donny Viking on June 08, 2021, 08:17:12 pm
I'm actually really disappointed with the offer.

Having spent over £900 on 4 season tickets last year to get at best £230 worth of value back using Ifollow (you only need one £10/game), I've basically donated £670 to the club. I don't want half of that back over the next 5 years.

I was actually happy to write off my Season ticket off, but with a significant partial refund on the others and this offer is not or near that.

I'm now thinking about not renewing now or in the future - I've just shown I can live without football for 12 months. Money is tighter than ever for some.

Can we legally request a full refund for services not delivered?

And just one other thought - I donated at the end of 19-20, now it seems 20-21, what happens if football gets disrupted again in 21-22? I'm not sure I want to keep taking this risk with season tickets donations for who knows what over the coming years? I'm happy to donate when I'm asked but not when it is assumed.

I read this thread before seeing the announcement and thought it must have been a shit-show. Turns out the measures offered are really good for the most part.

If you want a refund...ask for one? The club won't just ignore you if you do.

Also, the 5 year spread of getting our 20/21 money back is for an obvious reason. If the club just give us all a free ST this year then they make £0 off of it. So how are we supposed to sign good new players, or even exist? This method makes business sense for the club and gives all of us loyal ST holders a long-term discount. What's the issue?

Sounds like the car parking thing has been addressed too, which my Dad will appreciate as last season was the first year he was paying for one due to age catching up with his back!

So the club get a full applause from me and will be getting two returning season ticket holders and one brand new one from my family. Top marks.

One related question - who sits on the Supporter's Board and how was it put together? Perhaps I should already know but for whatever reason, I don't.

Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: DonnyBazR0ver on June 08, 2021, 08:51:29 pm
In my experience, the club are always happy to discuss individual concerns.  They don't ignore people.

Let's not forget, we've been through unprecedented times and through fans generosity, it really helped keep the club on a sound footing.

The liability, should everyone want a refund, even a partial refund, would be damaging but the club are trying to mitigate that and give something in return 

They understand there maybe people who's circumstances may have changed too, so, as said above they will  deal with anyone who contacts them and try to reach a satisfactory conclusion.

Genuine feeling. 'new' season ticket holders will be next to nothing with the prices IMO. Renewals will be okay but can see some being pissed off and seen as a clever tactic to get people renewing for the next 5 years.

Its not a clever tactic to get people renewing for the next 5 years, its a clever tactic to stop the club going out of business.


Exactly knowing this offer will do exactly this. Okay clever business then for better choice of wording.

Am I missing something?
Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: Scooter on June 08, 2021, 09:33:04 pm
I think this is a great offer. I didn’t renew last season and donated what was left of the previous season. I watched every single ifollow match home and away so spent over 500 quid watching a massively substandard experience.
I sit in the south stand so £299 for live league one football watching the team I love they can take my money. 35 quid for under 17s is great and I’ll be buying a couple of those as well.
Membership cards to scan at the turnstiles is a good move

So, decent prices, an ambitious manager and a squad overhaul - I can’t wait!

Just this minute I have had an e mail from Tracey, that's dedication for you, thanking me for my donation and saying that she will apply my deferall of my silver plus element to season 21-22. I have asked her for clarification of what that is as I have not mentioned any deferrall
She has just replied saying car parking and hospitality so looks like the car parking side of the question is sorted

And yet another e mail, we have some fantastic staff
Dear Silver Plus Member

 

Following on from the communication I sent earlier this evening, I would like to clarify the offer to defer the Silver plus to the 21/22 season.

 

This offer is for the Car parking and Hospitality only (the bolt on that your paid £120 for during the 20/21 season and did not get to use).

 

Further communication will arrive with you from Saturday 12 June regarding the Silver Membership (Season Ticket element).  Unless you have already seen this on the official website

erm, you donated the remainder of your 19/20 season ticket.

That's it, its a donation.
OK, I'm sure the club appreciated it,  :rolleyes:.

So donated season ticket refunds from 19/20 aren't given access to the new package ?

I’ll be going for a refund, still deciding wether to use the refunded money to get a season ticket or just go as and when and my work pattern is now completely different post lockdown. A bit astonished they are not offering a simple ‘defer it to this season’ option but I’m not brass I’m just a fan.

If they had offered a simple transfer I’d have taken it even knowing I would miss 40-50% of home games but none of them options appeal to me

18 hours on and a bit of reflection - 1stly I've not been emailed by the club, nor was I aware of previously statements about options for refunds, transfer of tickets etc (thanks for sharing) my only view was based on the DRFC ticketing page which I interpreted that this is the only offer on the table.

I'm much happier with the club on reflection if I'm given the choices suggested. For my package I'll probably ask for refunds on the 2 discounted tickets, but will donate the 2 adult tickets. I can afford to that, and this becomes my choice.

My feedback to the club would be ensure they communicate with members directly as well as put generic messages out on the web site. I know it's difficult, but I suspect like myself some others may have jumped to the wrong conclusion about the approach of the club.  I also understand the club doesn't want to promote refunds, but the free press article provides better context “Your generosity has been truly amazing. To those supporters who are allowing us to treat their purchase last year as a donation and are willing to buy again this season, we wish to offer the following package.” - subtle difference and easy with hindsight I know.

In conclusion thanks DRFC - you have restored my faith and I shouldn't jump to conclusions without all the facts

Absolutely. I paid £270 at 16 and now pay £339 as an adult. To be fair all season ticket prices have been held fairly well over time, great credit for that and huge credit for fixing the problems retaining youngsters.

I'm sure the club will take on board some comments from some fans regarding other options granted they can't and won't please all fans it's impossible.

Do you still get a discount for being an alliance member on top of the discount for being a silver member last year? It’s been, I think, 5% (or 10%?) discount ever since I’ve been an alliance member.

Lincs Rover.
I’ve just asked Tracy in the office & YES you can still get the discount, HOWEVER please do this over the PHONE as the online process will not register it. Hope this helps.

That wasn't intentional, and if it comes across that way then apologies to goalkick.

The club website should always be the first port of call for information from the club online, particularly when it comes to tickets and official communications. Yes, many get their info from here or social media - I first read about this announcement here but when I read the actual club article it was at total odds with some of the things said in this thread - but it is common sense to go to the place where the club put out their official communications.

There doesn't appear to be an 18-24 option for the South Stand. The website states 22 - 24. Is this a typo or will 18 to 22 yr olds be barred from the South Stand next season?

It will be a typo.

I spoke to the club earlier to ask how it was going, and they said they were extremely happy and grateful to all those supporters who'd made it known they were treating last seasons ticket as a donation.

Most said they'd appreciated the iFollow cost was in the region of £230, and therefore they'd had some value for their contribution.

Again most said they'd be renewing as soon as the online booking can be done.

Genuine question for Martin. Whilst the EFL are planning on crowds returning in August, today's appalling figures, and scientists' warning of a substantial 3rd wave, must surely put the whole thing in jeopardy.

Are there any contingency plans for that happening?

Is the official website the first place you look for news? It isn’t for me. It’s behind Twitter (including the official account and others) and this forum.

Anyway, on topic, I suppose I’m in something of a privileged position to be commenting in that I didn’t renew last year, so it doesn’t affect me. I don’t want to criticise others for their reactions (the negative ones anyway) but a few thoughts nonetheless:

- The club has to be run like a business, of course they’re going to want to maximise income streams and incentivise longer term season ticket commitments. And there is a benefit  there for supporters, however I accept it may not suit everyone.

- At the moment we’re all waiting for news on new signings. That’s going to cost money, and you have to accept that there’s a need to balance the books somewhere - again pointing to ticket sales.

- The anecdotes above about Tracy and the ticket office staff reaching out to resolve issues for people match my own experiences of dealing with the club. They’re brilliant, and we’re so lucky to have so many of the people we do. Some people could maybe be more grateful for that.

- As I understand it people can still apply for full refunds, and of course some will need them. But I can understand the club will want as many people as possible to ‘buy into’ the five year offer.

- Since moving to Leeds, and since my Dad passed away, season tickets don’t necessarily work for me. But the moment the club appointed Wellens I’ve felt compelled to get one again. For me they’ve made a statement of ambition and intent with that choice, and I want that to continue with the incomings on the playing side (Close is an excellent start) so I’d like to do my bit. I’m genuinely excited about the prospect of watching us again this coming season.

From an EFL or club point of view?

The club have built into next seasons ticket a refund per game if missed for any reason. Its not a full ticket refund but covers 50% of the cost. And, as I say, its for any reason so long as you let them know in advance.

If the worst comes to the worst, which it won't, you'll get 50% back and a chance to watch on iFollow.

For news? Not necessarily, but I don't get it from this forum. If I'm waiting on ticket information, or a fixture change, or merchandising promotions, or an expected club statement, then yes I will absolutely check the official website first because that is where those things will be first reported.

Signings and things like that are also put out on the official site alongside social media before other outlets pick them up usually too.

Im disappointed with the package on offer but I understand that the club can't please everyone. It's fine for those who can commit to buying them for the next 5 years but its not an option for me at the minute.

I still kick myself for renewing last seasons ticket when the world was going to shit, very poor foresight from myself.

Why not get a refund on this year's season ticket then use the money to buy next year's?

I've seen zero communication from the club saying that you can claim a refund
Me as well , I've even looked on the official site and i cannot see anywhere that says you can get a refund on last years season ticket , And the 50% back on games you cannot attend only applies to 4 games, A lot of people have lost there jobs in the last 18 month and will really need the money back or to put towards next years season ticket, giving me £40 a year back over 5 years will not work for a lot of us.

Not all people used that service though? Or the service they received wasn't great OR had multiple season tickets to 1 household.

Like I said in a previous post, I’m receiving a full refund (18/06/21) then spending around another £140 as well as the refund the day I get it. It’s what works best for me and in the bigger picture the club end up with the same, if not more money over the 20/21 & 21/22 season. I’d probably not be able to afford it if not, even though I shouldn’t have to explain myself.

Everyone’s trying to do THEIR BEST to keep the club going, it shouldn’t put people in a difficult situation.

I take the point. But what about those who:

1. Didn't or couldn't watch it.
2. Found it a poor product.
3. Found it vastly inferior and not worth £10.
4. Live with others who had access so pay more than once for something others paid once for.

It's not that simple and these to me are all valid arguments.

I do though agree, if you liked (note liked not enjoyed last season) watched every game, are getting some money back and are an individual then I don't think it's morally right to ask for all money back.  Some people in times we are in will just want the money, I can understand that but don't necessarily agree.
Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: RoversAlias on June 10, 2021, 03:22:38 pm
At the end of the day, people who paid for a Season Ticket last season paid hundreds of pounds to watch 23 live football games and they got the opportunity to watch 0. However you slice it, they are entitled to refunds if that is what they want because what they paid for was not provided (through no fault of the club, but still). Getting on a high horse about that is not fair or needed.

I watched every game on iFollow, I'm not asking for a refund and I will be buying again next week, but I have never liked this viewpoint that watching the games on tele from the sofa was comparable to the live experience and therefore made Season Tickets worthwhile. It didn't. It was the best available option in the circumstances, but still vastly inferior to sitting in the stands cheering the team on, seeing friends and family and enjoying a day out at the football. So I don't begrudge anybody who feels that that experience was not worth £300 or £400, because I don't think it was even though I'm not somebody who wants their money back.

and nether are we supporters and fellow pensioners. I tried to watch it on I follow but most of the time it was very hit and miss so I never got my money’s worth, and I am also not asking for my money back, but I do expect fair play and it wouldn’t hurt to give a bit of discount in aid of loyalty as us fans have shown loyalty for a season and half

Well no, that's not right.

iFollow is an EFL product and the data is held by the EFL.

The data is accessible by the club but not in a format that would help them deliver the solution you mention. The data isn't broken down match by match.

And iFollow wasn't built or designed to do what it did last season. It was adapted at rapid speed to provide a solution that would keep season ticket holders happy so they wouldn't be demanding refunds. If they hadn't have done that then just about every EFL club would have gone out of business within a few months.

Unlike other business's football carried on, had to pay players and yet had no match day income other than the money received for season tickets.

Its certainly not intended to be blackmail, but a lot of thought and effort went into giving money back to ST holders but yet enabling the club to carry on and survive. Other clubs at our level have done nothing of the sort.

Since - 1969  not one club will come out of this financially well, some of the bigger clubs with traditionally bigger crowds have lost massively when it comes to revenue and their underlying costs are larger than clubs like ours as well.
    Hence the problems that a club like Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County are undergoing, and they are not the only ones, and with an uncertain future ahead that nobody can forecast with certainty how quickly it will return to normal as far as attending games and the business of clubs like hospitality and functions are concerned is somewhat of a guess, and some of the bigger spenders are just continuing to push the boat out.
   If the majority of football clubs were ordinary Businesses they would have shut down years ago.
  We have a good management team who have to look at the big picture, not just the playing side, and from the outside looking in as we as supporters are all having to do, and not knowing the real cost of the financial hit, as far as I can see as a club we have  been  steered through the pandemic quite well as a club of which the playing side is the one us supporters concentrate on and tend to dismiss the other side of the business which underpins everything.
  All we can now do is where possible show our support to the club in whichever way we can, the best way by going to games and buying tickets if we have the funds to do so,  let the business side and the team management get on with their jobs with the finances that are made available, and hope we have a little of that thing called luck and can recover to something like normality and make some progress.

At the end of the day. we all want value for money but also a team we can support that will be sustainable well into the future.
It is an individual's responsibility to judge whether the compromises the club has made are adequate and suit the individual's needs.
In my case, I'm quite happy to make a long-term commitment even though I'm in the seniors bracket now. I will also donate last season's offered refund, as I did the year before, but I can probably afford it.
You will never please all the people all the time but the club are actually being very generous compared to many others as far as I can see.

The one thing that does bother me is those ST holders who are now asking for a full refund and disregarding the iFollow service they enjoyed last season. That's poor form at a time when the club needs our help.



Surely they get a refund minus £10 per game for the home iFollow games they watched.

You would think so, but its not happening.



Who's fault is that though? Surely the club have access to who watched the ifollow games and can adjust refunds accordingly? At the start of the season people were using individual codes to access and then their accounts in the latter parts. The club must have some kind of records?

I feel like making people reach out for refunds is a bit like emotional blackmail

Well no, that's not right.

iFollow is an EFL product and the data is held by the EFL.

The data is accessible by the club but not in a format that would help them deliver the solution you mention. The data isn't broken down match by match.

And iFollow wasn't built or designed to do what it did last season.

Though  the plight of football through this crisis was there to see ….but not ONE club went to the wall so something was done to prevent this . Fans rallied , players took a wage cut ( temporary)  and EFL juggled it’s priorities to help. But NO mention of the millionaires who own their clubs digging deep . I do not begrudge owners from stating their views and putting the facts out there , but to seek only to ask supporters to take the brunt when many of them have had greatly reduced finances or lost their jobs is poor judgment on the these clubs , particularly when they turned and walked away from wage capping and budget prudence measure being mandatory.

Our owners dig deep every season.  Why do you feel they should give even more millions?  I don't see anyone with your bank statement deciding how much you should invest into this part of your life.

Seriously, be grateful for the ownership we have, not the ownership you wish we had that would be bankrupt in two seasons if they invested as you want them to.
The are the legacy holders for DRFC and by that if they feel unable to continue then they should sell . I DO appreciate all that they do , but it’s their choice and if it went bump then so be it, that’s football but NO one has gone out of business have they , and they will not walk away from this whilst ever they can sell it at some point .

They haven't said they're going to save you money on what you previously paid, they've said they're going to give you half of this season's ticket price back by way of discounts over the next 5 years, so the listed price of £329 will be discounted accordingly. The image of the pricing structure on the official website has a thing next to it that says "Discount to be subtracted from these prices based on price paid last year."

Not sure how that correlates with you paying £299 for CAT B last year though as everything I've seen says CAT B was 329 last year early bird and 359 after the early bird.

There was an Extremely Early Bird last season (first week/10 days of sale?) which got the Cat B price down to £314.00, which is what I paid. Prior to that Cat B was around £324/£329 for the few seasons preceding.

Looking at it (depending on what the discount is from the club) I'll either be effectively breaking even or making money back over the next five seasons.

I appreciate this isn't a one size fits all solution, and it was never possible for it to be so, but from my perspective it's a great deal.

If you look at the twitter panel on the left you'll find this from Shaun;

To try and clarify

The discount is based on what you paid last season and is intended to give you at least 50% of what you paid back in savings over 5 years.

So for example if you paid £329 you're purchase was over £300 so you will get a £40 discount per year for the next 5 years.

Value £200

We've then tried to add value to that with The Experience Club (value £120)

and of course there was ifollow access (value £230)

So based on the discounts offered £200 + £120 (The Experience Club) + £230 (iFollow access) that's a potential value of discounts and other products of £550 v a season  ticket that cost £329.

Hoping that helps @vscofficial

Ive paid £299 for the past three seasons in cat B. This seasons is showing a price of £329. How is this going to save me £40 on what I’ve previously paid. Is there no early bird pricing?
Genuine questions!
really, I've paid 299 for the past so many seasons, and it's been cat C?
It was the Copps two year deal for the last two and the year before was that price for the early bird.

I certainly wouldn't dream of paying for this at all. I don't live in Doncaster, but still travel for every game. However, I wouldn't have the time, nor would want to spend more on travel costs to attend these events. So, for me, this isn't worth £120. So, the 'value' of this should not be taken into account in the 'savings'.

I'm sure I'm not the only exile who is thinking this.

Otherwise 60 plussers would have to wait another 5 Seasons paying a lot more than that maybe 6 if their birthday drops "wrong" - so I was grateful and still am for 5 years more savings than [say Barnsley] fans

Like many many others I suggest we all stop, take a step back & remember this is the time we all need to try to stick together. Let’s not divide & yes I fully understand that life ain’t always fair. I cannot take account everyone’s different circumstances & the trials and tribulations we go through day after day.
With regards to the decision to keep our concessionary rate at 60, then I can only applaud our club.
Lincoln City, last season (  I believe) upped their concession rate from 60 to 65. To me that’s ANOTHER plus from the club & without wishing to sound patronising, we’re another day closer to watching OUR team play again.

Title: Re: Season tickets
Post by: RoversAlias on June 14, 2021, 04:45:30 pm
I have no idea why the younger age bracket are getting criticised?

It has always been good practice to offer cheaper tickets to younger supporters, because as DonnyOsmond says we will not grow the next generation of fans if they can't afford to come to games regularly. They will find plenty of other things to do with their Saturday afternoons.

As for them earning...ey? The majority of 18-24 year olds are either on lower wages due to minimum wage laws or apprenticeships, or on no wages because they're at university or college.

Regardless, it shouldn't be a competition. There have always been discounts for young people and for seniors, as there should be, and it's good that the club set those limits at the ages they do. Many clubs do not extend them to 24 years old or start them at 60 years old, often it is up to 21 and over 65 for concession prices.

Rovers do very well with their price offerings inmm my opinion.

Well Luton do a cheaper ST for 75 y olds for 210 quid so thats a saving for someone of that age

However from 65 its 290 and they pay 400 quid from 60 to 65 .

Dont want to say Rovers are mean for not having a 75 plus concession cos I reckon I will be better off {Cat A] by £1305 by then as against a Luton fan although they are Tier 2 at the moment

They do make 18 to 24s pay same as old scrotes [and scrotesses] though

I think everybody's situation is always different and COVID will  further complicate decisions on whether to buy a season ticket. I was quite chuffed when I hit 60 and got a relatively cheap ST so have not hesitated to renew. The free games coverage was great and bearing in mind a home game costs near on £100 in petrol and a ticket if I did it that way its a no brainer.
If I was in a tight spot though, had maybe just lost my job and had some tough decisions to make a ST would get trimmed off the budget pretty damned quickly. Needs must.

It's all a matter of choice now. I've got my season ticket because I don't know at my age how many years I've got left in this life, and if that were to be a life with no entertainment, then I'd rather not be here at all.

An interesting point though is the suggestion someone made that we might have to provide Covid passports to get into the KM. I've had my jabs, but what about anyone who's bought a ST and hasn't been jabbed. Would they have to get a refund?

This may also put some people off now buying a season ticket as well.

“Nadhim Zahawi just announced it in parliament. Nightclubs and large crowded venues will be mandated to require proof of vaccination at end of Sept - he stated proof of negative test will no longer suffice. Subject to parliamentary approval”

Good! Stop all the morons who won't get one attending
The club had an interested free loan from thousands of supporters and when it came to repaying them , the club decided that it preferred to only reply 50% of it keeping the other . Nice work if you get it !

“ Up the Morons ”!!!
You really seem to have a problem with the club you supposedly support.

I suggest you go and support a Premier league club. Sure you would be much happier with a club that has tens of millions to throw about.

Exactly can only post negative drivel
Should change profile name to “Spouting Shite Since 1969”
Why has only 50% been refunded please - I had a choice accept a discount for the next few years or ask for my money back in full. MY CHOICE was to not ask for my money back, as it was for others

Over the last few years I have been an early bird ST purchaser but with things as they are right now I haven’t bought one yet for the coming season.

You won't be making any complaints about the playing budget then?
I'm with you Hound. Why would anyone but a season ticket in the current environment.

To support their club?

Not at all.  Plus you have no idea what type of supporter I am.
I might have spent loads more money supporting the Rovers than you have.
I have bought STs for many years and Rovers have been my club since my first visit to BV in 1962.
It’s a bit harsh to suggest that I’m not a supporter.

Fans attending sports venues with capacities of about 20,000 or more may be required to show proof of full vaccination from the end of September, under plans being considered by the government, looks like no need of proof of a vaccination next season , from the BBC

Good to see the club have provided a match guide for the Newcastle game listing the measures in place which gives us a flavour of what might be ahead for the start of the league programme.

Not sure they are usually slightly cheaper than us every year. I just think Barnsley are rrally cheap not that we're overpriced at all. No doubt that will also be the lowest ST price in the Championship

Shaun did some comparisons between Barnsley and Doncaster based on this thread and me asking if they were a lot cheaper than us

Taking on board a complete comparison between renewal discounts(5 year thanks you's)  and full season tickets

ADULTS

Barnsley adults range between £235 to £475
Doncaster adults range between £269 to £395

SENIORS

Barnsley seniors range from £145 to £270
Doncaster seniors range from £199 to £295

Barnsley seniors start at 65
Doncaster seniors start at 60 so start five years younger

YOUNG ADULTS

Barnsley young adults range from £145 to £270
Doncaster young adults range from £79 to £195

Barnsley young adults are 19 – 21
Doncaster young adults are 18 – 24 so start younger and last for longer

JUNORS

Barnsley   £70 to £115
Doncaster £35
Barnsley juniors are 12 -19
Doncaster Juniors are 12-18

CHILDREN

Barnsley £10 to £35
Doncaster £35
Barnsley children are U12
Doncaster children are U12

GENERAL

Doncaster also offered anyone who renewed who bought a 5 year commitment on a cheaper season ticket.  Barnsley only offered one year

Barnsley also charge interest on their spread payments, going up to 9.70% for 10 months. 
Doncaster only charge a flat admin fee and no interest.

Would be good if someone could be ar**d to do a comparison between the 2 Clubs based on someone having a ST from 12 till 75

Would take every benefit into consideration for each Clubs fans such as the extra 5 years of Concession Tickets for 60+ people etc and the extra 4 years discount we got as a "thank you" for not taking a refund

Bet there isnt much in it and yes they are in Champ and us in L1 but we could both be in same Division after this Season

If our Tickets work out more expensive I would still prefer watching us for [say] an extra £5 than them and save a fiver

Barnsley have sold 11k and have stopped selling season tickets as they don't think they will be able to go to full capacity

They're 70 quid cheaper than ours. Partner dad paid 250 on halfway line for next season!
That's excellent .
Ours are clearly overpriced, and  feel it's not been appreciated me donating the remainder of my 19/20 season ticket money .
Won't be doing that again .

Shaun did some comparisons between Barnsley and Doncaster based on this thread and me asking if they were a lot cheaper than us

Taking on board a complete comparison between renewal discounts(5 year thanks you's)  and full season tickets

But what about his 3 or 4 games he donated without any thanks
It's not ust that I didn't get a thanks, I didn't even get a response to my email .

It's common courtesy and professionalism.

Fans have been milked dry, how many other industries are there that expect donations of hundreds from customers ?
I'm not just talking about me here .

Didn't see any Debenhams fans donating £300 to keep them going .

I'd also like to know how much more tb has put in during these times ?

For the sake of fans who are now not just emotionally invested, but financially too .

Could the donations be converted into shares and given to the vsc ?
Serious question .

“ Didn't see any Debenhams fans donating £300 to keep them going.”

There have been a lot of classic lines written on this forum. This one is up there with the best. I don’t know if you are a man, woman, child, or how old you are, I do know you’re no football fan though.

Your donated 3 or 4 games never amounted to anywhere near £300

How have fans been milked dry? Each one of us has a choice to either donate or ask for a refund it’s simple really no one has been forced to donate. If you haven’t received an email then I doubt you had a season ticket or one of the 10 game packages because the people who work in the office have been nothing but helpful. I bet you haven’t contacted the club to ask about your missing email, if it bothers you so much give them a ring or are you expecting someone from the VSC to do it even though you slag them off.
