Season Ticket sales at Sheffield Wednesday

Recommended Posts

Screenshot 2020-04-07 at 23.07.16.jpg

 

With the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic does Sheffield Wednesday have a real upcoming issue with regards to the number of season tickets sold?

Surely there's going to be an incredible loss in numbers of season tickets sold for next season (please god we get through this and start a new season) and that's going to really impact Chansiri's strategy and could even impact massively on pay on the gate prices?


Even if the season returns or gets played behind closed doors we will have lost a significant part of the season ticket purchasing period where most fans renew or buy their season tickets.

It's so low on priorities right now (rightly so) that I don't know how football clubs are going to pull back season ticket figures.. I really don't. I can't see how they can unless there's a real break before the new season starts..

Something else to impact on the flawed FFP debacle.

So DC will again have to put his hand in his pocket.

No doubt there's people on here ready to give him grief.

Really don't get why people post stuff like this.. 

Anyway back to the point.. 


Season tickets - is there going to be a real issue at all football clubs who have lost all the lead time to selling season tickets?

When this Coronavirus thing is over and let's hope it's soon, then there needs to be a significant period of time before the next season starts in order to shift season tickets otherwise football fans could well go back to being primary pay on the gate fans

The vast majority of Wednesday fans who are going to buy a season ticket have already done so.

I bought the 10-year season ticket. If next season is canceled, will I get another year added on?

I wouldn’t worry. That’s a ticket for life I would imagine.

I could do with the cash back. If Wednesday are furloughing staff can I furlough my ST?

I think the guff churned out before all this happened will also play a huge part! 

 

 

That's my point yeah. We weren't doing great since Christmas too, so that will have made people hold out getting their season tickets (we know that as this is what people were saying at the time).

I highly doubt that our season ticket numbers are anywhere near what they were last season

Clubs more than ever will need the fans 

 

As usual the fans will have to bail out clubs with their money 

 

That means buying tickets - if you want a club to support in the long term

I missed early bird because I'm a forgetful so and so and then the state of our football had me really considering not renewing for the first time in a decade.

 

Now that we're all missing the football I'm ready to sign up again as soon as I'm able

Think the FFP / P&S rules will have to be relaxed after the current situation passes.
I doubt any club will be able to comply otherwise.

You have my sympathies.

 

:duntmatter:

 

Didn't expect to be taken seriously, on account of virtually no one actually buying one!
